Worry Free in Europe
I was skeptical about this bag but the reviews made me give it a try.
I took this bag on an 8 day trip in Europe hitting up London, Amsterdam, Brussels and Paris. I traveled by air, train and foot to each place and never did I once feel worried that someone would get into my bag and steal anything.
We stayed in hostels the entire trip and I was even confident that people could not get into it when I would lock the shoulder strap to my bunk overnight so I could quietly get up super early in the AM and depart my location.
Even in Paris which is notorious for pickpocketing, nobody was able to get into my bag—and a couple people tried. One person at the airport outside the secured terminal area tried to unzip my side zipper in the front but I felt it and they couldn’t do it quickly and got stuck and turned around and walked away quickly. Another person by the Eiffel Tower one night tried the top one (which has the same method for making unzipping difficult) and I felt it and turned around and they took off running.
So yeah, I love this pack! I just hope it lasts and they keep making this exact version and size. It worked perfectly for being the only bag I brought my entire trip and fitting onto every plane as a carry on under my seat from EasyJet, American Airlines and British Airways, without paying extra.
