Best Anti-Theft Travel & Business Backpacks 

For many of us traveling today, our carry-on hand luggage for airplane flights, train travel, and even cruise travel includes the need to bring electronic equipment such as laptops, Ipads, smart phones, and camera equipment.  None of which are things that given the prices of them, any of us would be totally comfortable having in checked luggage.  Sadly, increasingly we also have to keep in mind that our carry-on luggage and backpacks require anti-theft considerations.  

Here at Dream Travel Today, we are reminded of several vacation destinations where we encountered the need for anti-theft backpacks during our adventures.  There was the time in Madrid, Spain when one of us was practically surrounded by a youthful gang trying to get at one of our backpacks.  There was the time in St. Louis, when one of our backpacks was lifted while we were purposely distracted by someone supposedly wanting directions and their companion made off with the bag sitting near us.  And there was the time in Belize, when the backpack strap was cut in a grab and run.  Even here, living in a major tourist destination, we locals have to guard our belongings, including backpacks, at local beaches and theme parks.  This is a worldwide problem when traveling.

One of the ways tourists and business travelers can be proactive in making sure they don’t lose their valuables is to invest in well-made backpacks especially designed to make it less convenient for the would-be thieves.
