I originally purchased this for its security features for my trip to Barcelona, because I had heard that pickpockets were an issue there if you're not careful.
I can't say for certain, however I do believe it prevented some robberies. Even if it didn't, it allowed me to actually relax on vacation and not have to worry. This is why you get this bag. I like to explore new cities on vacation. This relaxes me and I only want to worry about getting lost, not losing anything and thats what this bag gave me.
After returning from vacation, I liked this bag so much that I made it my everyday bag. I carry this bag to work. The bag has held up wonderfully.
It has a lot of storage options, two water bottle pockets, and I love the all black discreet styling. I walked around for full days while on vacation with this on my bag. Very comfortable, however venting is not the best so my back did get hot as times.
I would definitely recommend this bag.
