Pacsafe Travelsafe 5L and 2L Portable Safe Bags

Society is every changing and unfortunately we waved goodbye to the days where you could leave your keys in the ignition and the windows down when you parked in the main street and ducked into the shops.

Now, everything has to be hidden away and locked up like Fort Knox because there are people that walk among us that think they have the right to take what someone else worked for to buy.

Pacsafe are leaders in travel security with a range of products to help you secure your belongings when you are away from home.

In this article we’ll look at the Pacsafe Travelsafe 5L and 12L portable safe bags.

What makes the bag a safe? Couldn’t you just slash it open? The answer to both those questions is 360 eXomesh, a mesh bag woven into the bag itself making it slash and cut proof. See the below diagram from the Pacsafe website.

The eXomesh system surrounds the bag and incorporates the braided steel cable that is used like a drawstring to seal the bag and lock the contents inside.

The braided cable has a locking system that secures it closed and the braided steel cable is long enough to loop it around a fixed object within a motel room, a campsite or inside a camper trailer or caravan.

We’ve included an embedded Youtube video from PacSafe’s Youtube channel which demonstrates how it is used.

So, what do we think of the product?

Pro’s:

  • Lightweight
  • Packs flat so can be transported in the bottom of a suitcase so you have it when you need it
  • Peace of mind leaving valuables back at camp or in the room or in the car safely so you don’t have to lug them around
Con’s:
  • I don’t like the small flimsy looking padlock that comes with the bag. If I bought one I would invest in a better larger padlock, the bag itself is excellent.

The 4wd Zone sells both sizes and prices start from $109.95, click here to go to the online store.
