Pacsafe in Cuba


One country. Two bags. Three different ways.

Most of my bags (sans backpacks) are super cute but not very functional--some can fit only my phone and maybe a lipstick, some close with only one small and weak magnet, and some are fitted with cute but thin straps that don't feel very secure.

Traveling was synonymous with lugging around an ugly, bulky backpack, because there are surprisingly few brands that marry fashion with function. Until now.


Pacsafe is a brand I've newly discovered that is a wanderer's dream. Their mission is to make our lives easier, so we can explore the world with one less, albeit huge, worry. Their bags have pickpocket-proof design, RFID-blocking technology (so passersby can't scan your credit cards from the outside and copy your payment info), turn-and-lock security hooks (so your bag can't be easily unclipped), and cut-resistant technology (so nobody can cut your straps or slash the bottom of your purse).


I chose two bags from their new Citysafe CX collection to take on my Cuba trip (this isn't to say I didn't feel safe in Cuba--the people of Cuba were actually very honest and lovely). On every getaway, it's usually tough trying to pack as light as possible but be as stylish as possible. I found the task easy with this carry-all tote that took me from shopping trips to beach days, and this convertible backpack that turned from a two-strapped backpack to a messenger bag to a PURSE.


I wanted to show you one of many unique, ingenious features Pacsafe utilizes.

Here you'll see how the zipper is secured to the bag. It's impossible to quickly zip open to access the bag's contents.


Sliding the bar at the top of the ring frees the zippers from its hold. This was actually difficult for even me to figure out at first without instructions, so a thief likely cannot figure it out in the split second opportunity they have to rob you.


Even when the zippers are free from the ring, they are interlocked. They need to be unhooked from each other before accessing the bag.

I am so about this brand! I really adore a quality brand that serves a unique purpose and does it with this much style. I didn't realize how much of my time traveling is spent worried about being pickpocketed--my hand is usually absentmindedly covering my bag's zipper pulls, or I'll wear my backpack at my front so I can guard it better. Pacsafe made it easy for me to relax and just enjoy myself.

Find my all-purpose tote here and my convertible backpack here in all colorways. You'll be a believer, too!

  21. I am so glad you posted this. I am trying to take my regular camera more places but it just doesn't fit in most of my bags so I end up needing to lug around two bags and that's so annoying. I've been looking for the perfect bag but coming up short. This might be just right! Thanks for sharing!
