With the rise of pick-pockets and identity thieves preying on travelers, the popularity of anti-theft bags like this Travelon Anti-Theft Signature Tote has also risen. Travelon has always been known for their affordable travel bags for women and all their offerings for anti-theft bags have so far been a hit because of their price points.
Travelon has recently cottoned on to the fact that travelers expect an RFID blocking compartment or card slots in an anti-theft bag, so instead of losing customers to Pacsafe, which has long included these features, they’ve joined the bandwagon. This tote not only includes RFID blocking for credit cards and a passport but also anti-slash construction for the front and main compartments and straps, and lockable zippers.
Let’s take a look at the features of this anti theft travel bag:
Features of the Travelon Anti-Theft Signature Tote with Stitching
- The bag is made of 100% polyester twill and unlike most of its predecessors, has some very nice quilting detailing on certain areas of the bag.
- The colors available are black, eggplant purple and truffle grey.
- The size is 12 x 14.25 x 4 inches and it weighs 1 lb and 6 oz.
- The main compartment is lockable and contains RFID blocking card and passport slots.
- The main compartment is slash proof because of the lightweight mesh that’s embedded in the lining.
- There’s a padded pocket inside that can hold a tablet.
- The shoulder strap and grab handles are cut proof, and the shoulder strap can be adjusted between 13 and 25 inches in length.
- There is a strap with a locking carabiner on one side that can be used to attach the bag to a fixed object.
- There are two zippered and slash-proof pockets on the front and an expandable mesh pocket for a water bottle on one side.
- There’s an add-a-bag strap on the back to allow you to slide it over the telescopic handle of your rolling luggage.
- It also comes with a removable LED light.
- This Travelon anti-theft travel bag is a versatile one – good for daily use to work and for travel as your personal item while flying or as your handbag while sightseeing.
- Although the padded pocket will hold a tablet, it is big enough to hold a laptop in the main compartment.
- It has all the necessary anti-theft features – slash and cutproof, locking main compartment, and RFID blocking pockets.
- Lightweight and can be carried either with the adjustable shoulder strap in cross body style, or as a shoulder bag using the double carry handles.
- Even though this tote is large, the shoulder strap and grab handles are not padded, making it difficult to carry it for long periods when heavy.
- Not big enough to act as your only carry on bag unless you don’t plan on carrying much with you on the flight.
- Based on early reviews and the popularity of Travelon’s previous anti-theft models, it’s probably safe to say that this bag will also be quite a hit for travelers. At the current sale price of under $70, it is the least expensive option among full-featured anti theft bags of this size.
