history / milestones

Pacsafe® is a brand of high-quality smart travel gear with built-in innovative anti-theft technology.  Our gear includes adventure backpacks, urban and leisure bags, women’s bags, photography bags, motorcycle bags and travel accessories such as straps, cables and locks.

Outpac Designs Limited, makers of Pacsafe®, was established in 1998 in Hong Kong by two Aussie blokes who sailed most of the world’s oceans and clocked up visits to more than 80 countries. Their own experiences and those of other travellers convinced them of the need for no-nonsense travel security.


We believe in the spirit of adventure. Getting off the beaten track and heading down the back alleys, free to explore possibilities and opportunities. But to tear up the map, to be spontaneous and to suck the marrow out of a travel experience, takes confidence. It takes a sense of security that only comes with knowing you have the right gear to outsmart the threats that may lay in wait. 
Nobody likes getting ripped off. We hate it and it’s not just ‘part of the experience’. Having your gear stolen when travelling affects your personal security. Ever been stuck in a foreign country without any money or a passport? We have (on more than one occasion) and trust us, fun isn’t a word that springs to mind. That’s why we’re dedicated to creating smart new ways to keep your gear secure. . After all, why should you have to spend your holiday and adventure worrying about your gear? Travel should be about freedom. About feeling safe out on the road less travelled. 
We’re independent souls at heart.  Freedom courses through our veins and it’s the itch we feel, when we’re chained to a desk too long. That’s why we’re founded on travel and escape whenever we can. This is and never will be a job to us, it’s our passion. That’s why wherever we go in the world, we listen and we learn from you. Real travellers, with real stories and very real experiences.
