The Pacsafe Citysafe CS300 is good at being a backpack that thwarts pickpockets, bag slashers, and RFID hackers for a cost of around $100. Take away its extreme security features and the CS300 is an overpriced daypack

The Pacsafe Citysafe GII 200 is a nice gadget that can help out a lot! But you will still have to look after your belongings and don’t leave it anywhere unattended.

Wonderful Wanderings

So, do I recommend the Pacsafe Citysafe 100 GII small anti-theft travel purse? I definitely do. In fact, I think this is going to be my companion during many, if not all, of my future trips.
