There are always a million things on our minds when we are getting ready for a trip: what to pack, where we are staying, what the agenda will be, not to mention how we are going to keep our belongings safe throughout the trip.

Here are the best anti-theft bags in every style to suit your needs.

The Best Anti-Theft Crossbody Bag

Pacsafe Stylesafe Anti-Theft Crossbody

We love crossbody bags here at Airfarewatchdog, and one that has extra security is even better. This bag from Pacsafe can be worn both as a cross-body or as a shoulder bag. It features a zip closure that locks to a zip clip and a strap made from cut-resistant material. The exterior is made from RFIDsafe blocking material, keeping your credit cards and IDs safe from digital theft. Rest easy when you have this bag! Available in 2 colors.

User Review:Love the softer fabric and the improved strap. I especially like the underside of the strap - smooth/no ridges. I had purchased the Metrosafe LS140 for a three-week trip two years ago. When I returned, I noticed that my "nicer" tops were damaged by the strap rubbing (PacSafe uses this strap design in most of their bags) . This purse will pack flat if needed and lays next to the body nicely without being structured. The clip is still substantial without being so heavy as in some previous Pacsafe models. Large enough to carry my Canon Powershot SX50 comfortably if I wanted to. Overall very pleased with my purchase.”

User Review:I love mine!! I use it every day! I have several Coach purses and got very sick of the weight, especially when walking around on vacation/traveling. This is wonderful for all you need! Passport fits well and it only holds so much so it won't get heavy. I got this one as a gift for a trip through Europe, she loved it and used it the whole time. Well made and durable.”

The Best Anti-Theft Fashion Handbag

Cole Haan Marli Square Satchel

If you want some security and prefer a more typical purse, this satchel by Cole Haan fits the bill. With RFID protection and zipper closure, you’ll be protected from physical and digital theft. A polyester lining makes it easy to clean up spills. Available in 2 colors.

User Review:Great fashion handbag and goes with everything! My boyfriend bought me one for my birthday and I loved it, the size was just right and had all the compartments that I needed. I would totally suggest this purse for any female. Many times we carry so many items in our purse and I can say that I was able to fit all things in there comfortably and still had room and it was easy switching over.”

The Best Anti-Theft Backpack

Comfortable, roomy, and practical, this backpack is perfection. With front zippered pockets, side pockets, an organizer pocket in the main compartment with RFID protection, as well as a tethered key clip with LED light! You won’t need another backpack after you buy this one. Available in 3 colors.

User Review:I bought this backpack for a trip to the bush in South Africa. We were limited on how much luggage we could bring, so I decided this would be a great carry-on that I could pack a lot into. Boy, was I right! I packed clothes, camera, binoculars, iPad, charger, protein bars, bottles of meds, makeup, a small purse - you name it, I crammed it in there. This thing performed like a champ!”

The Best Anti-Theft Suitcase

Pacsafe Luggage Toursafe Exp29

The perfect carry-on for those looking for extra security, this bag has everything you’re looking for in security: slashguard stainless steel wire embedded into the fabric, a locking system, plus it’s lightweight.

User Review:Just returned from two trips: Fiji and then Europe. This bag held up well and was SAFE! I love the security features that it's not too heavy. It's not fancy but being narrow is also a help when trying to walk thru crowds and small spaces.”
