Traveling Hazards

There Are Many Different Hazards to Consider When Traveling

Travelon Can Stop Pickpockets

Whenever you are going to be traveling somewhere there are crowds, you are told to beware of pickpockets.  Especially in big cities, on public transportation and in big crowds “they” say there are lots of pickpockets.  One way to guard against them is to always be aware of your surroundings.  For women, a cross body bag is less likely to be snatched out of your grasp.  Of course, don’t leave a wallet sticking out of the open top of a purse.   Many companies that offer purses, handbags and luggage now offer RFID protection.  A company called Travelon  makes very stylish, lightweight bags that are perfect for traveling or every day. They take security way beyond run of the mill.  They offer locking zippers which are easy for the owner to open but take too much time for a crook to mess with.

How many times have you been in a restaurant and hung your purse over the back of your chair?  That’s an easy mark for a thief.  Travelon has a locking caribiner that allows you to attach the strap of your bag to the chair so no one can grab it and flee.  Evidently another popular m o for purse thieves is to carry a sharp knife and slash the side of a bag, reach in and take things.  These3 bags  have anti slash technology, so even though their bags are lightweight nylon, they are strong as iron.
