    A daypack is one of the most important things for a traveller. Looks like you’ve got a beauty. Enjoy your time in Australia.

    My husband has been urging me to look for slash-proof purses and carry-alls. This looks like it can fit the bill! Pacsafe is the brand then. Thanks!

      Hi Steffi. Did you enter? I hope you went through the options….I have realised that Rafflecopter does not register your entry unless you choose at least one of the options I have listed…so sorry I am trying to change it but no way I can do that.

    Daypacks are so essential. I like that this one has metal hooks! I think it’s time to make another investment!

    What a great little pack! I love that it’s lightweight and comfortable. The metal hooks to secure the pack is a great addition to help you feel confident that your bag is safe! Too bad it’s not waterproof, but there are plenty of rain covers out there that I’m sure would do the trick!

      Thanks Toccara! Yes I can purchase a separate cover, that’s a no-brainer! Hopefully Pacsafe will take my suggestion for future product development, or they might offer me a job as a pacsfafe product manager! ๐Ÿ˜€

    I love my daypack. It is an essential when I travel and it looks like you’ve found a good one here. You mention it isn’t waterproof and that would have been bad on my last trip due to being in and out of boats on islands in Thailand. I think your suggestion of a cover is great. I bet they develop that in no time. Otherwise, its a great recommendation

      Hi Joe, I also found out about Pacsafe not long ago. I was not so sure it would have been a good fit for my Outback Adventure in Australia. A great surprise and its modern design makes it to a great professional daypack too! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am no expert on day packs or backpacks of any kind, I have never had one, and recently I wanted to buy one and i didn’t even know where to start the search, your considerations above are very useful and, since I haven’t bought one yet, I will have a look at Pacsafe

    I’m also a fan of Pacsafer company – I’ve got a handbag. I used to carry a backpack but then I changed my DSLR into a small mirrorless camera and I could switch for more comfortable handbag – I also think it’s much safer to carry your belongings in front of you than on your back – especially if you are in crowds.

    Security is probably the most important thing for me, and one of the reasons why I like the Pacsafe range. Features like anti-slash technology and ability to lock pack to fixed objects are really useful. Smart zippers and RFID protection are new to me – didn’t have these on my older pacsafe packs – but are a welcome addition. Finally, I like an extended or (preferably) lifetime warranty so I can be confident in the durability.

      The great thing about Pacsafe, I like, is, next to all these fabulous anti-slash features, its beautiful and comfortable design, which is not easy to combine with technology performance!

    I look for a day pack that can allow me to be organised – so separate sections are great! I also like the safety features that Pacsafe include. It looks like it would be a great pack for me.

    Look for a daypack that to be able to carry with my laptop, camera and a few more travel gadgets. also should be come with anti-theft and slash-proof technology with light weight in carry. Thanks

    I always look for theft-proof safety elements in every piece of travel gear that I acquire. From wallets to luggage to day packs. I also would love for day pack to be very lightweight & packable.
