I was looking for a sling bag for travel that would deter pickpockets. This would definitely do that (took me 5 minutes to figure out how to open it)! Brilliant design; quite secure. However, it's not large enough to accommodate all the stuff I carry for a day trip (light jacket, wallet, phone, chargers, sunglasses, iPad mini, water bottle, chapstick, travel documents, etc.). The Venturesafe X would work if I omitted the jacket.

I am 5'9" and this backpack fits me perfect. I love the material and security. It is very functional. I bought the wallet too. Although the wallet is very casual it is perfect with this backpack. It would not fit my 15" laptop in the side pocket, but it might fit a small 13". My laptop does fit in the main compartment, but barely. I used it for a week and received lots of compliments. You can tell it's not just a backpack for school. One of the things I love is when you set it on the ground or table it doesn't usually fall over. So cute!!

Durable and fashionable this is a fantastic cross body bag for travel or everyday use. It’s not a large bag but it’s big enough to carry the essentials.

I love this bag. It’s a perfect size and held all that I wanted for my trip...sunglasses, bifocals and one pair of readers, slender card holder in the rfid pocket that held my credit card-drivers license and cash, note pad, iPad, travel size Kleenex, 7 day med box, slender hair brush, Afrin and handkerchief all slipped into main compartment easily. In bottom zippered compartment I carried baggie with a few Tums, a container of Tic Tacs, a pen, a travel size hand cream, and a travel size roll on cologne. The outside pocket was perfect for my cell phone and earbuds which I needed quick access to frequently. This bag held everything and was not overly large or heavy. I love the soft feel of the fabric. The construction is sturdy. I especially like the safety zippers, adjustable strap so can be worn crossbody or over one shoulder, and the cut resistant features. It is the perfect bag for me. This is my first Pacsafe and I’m definitely satisfied.

Defective/ used. Arrived today and I was excited to try it out. Incredibly stiff but manageable. Downside is the face that the waterproof part, the buckle, is unuseable because the clips are both female! Additionally, lock is locked. It should be set to 000 and able to be opened but it won't and therefore also unuseable. PLease inspect items before shipping out.

I bought this bag in black. The manufacturing details are outstanding. It's beautifully made, nylon fabric and the hardware are of excellent quality, and the finishing work on this bag is meticulous -- no loose threads or oversized, sloppy stiching on PacSafe bags. It's an excellent size for a petite 5'2" woman, but it's generous enough inside to carry glasses in a case, pens, a small notepad, keys, some sunscreen and cosmetics, a Kleenex packet, an energy bar or two, and a small (8 oz.) plastic water bottle.

Beautiful! This one is a lovely, deep, warm tan -- mushroomy -- but not a flat, dead color. I'll use it with browns, kackis and tans, and I even think it's a lively enough color to carry with my summer wardrobe of whites and bright colors. This bag is meticulously made. Pacsafe has paid attention to manufacturing details when it made this purse. There are no loose thread ends to trim, and the stitching is so much smaller than on the Travelon bag I bought and returned. It's a quality product, and despite being nylon, it's not a cheap-looking bag. Even the zipper and the other hardware is attractive. I'll be proud to carry this! Sizing is perfect for my petite frame, but the bag large enough to carry a credit card case, eyeglasses in their case, a keyring chock full of keys, a small Kleenex packet, lipstick, a small mirror, a pen and small notepad, and an Energy Bar. I also bought a second Pacsafe bag in black, which I'm keeping. I have a feeling these Pacsafe bags are going to become my go-to bags for all-year 'round use from now on.

I LOVE this bag! I get compliments on it every time I use it. I originally purchased for taking BART into S.F. and a recent trip to NYC. I wanted a secure bag to feel safe on the crowded subway and around the city. This was perfect! I especially like the zipper loop secure closure for the front pocket, anti-slash straps, and pink lining. The sort of satin-like sheen of the bag makes it dressier and I find myself using for work as well. The handle at the top of the bag is longer than standard backpacks so it can be carried like a satchel or on my wrist giving more versatility in ways to carry it. The two side water bottle holders are great and even hold my larger 24oz. Hydroflask or Swell bottles. There are a couple of changes I'd love to see, but still am so happy I purchased. I wish it had a clip for my keys so they don't get lost in the bag. The straps also slowly loosen over time so I occasionally have to readjust them. Although I wish it was slightly larger (I love large bags), it does hold a lot more than I thought. I don't travel without it.

So bummed to be returning. ... I love the large size of this bag and the pink interior. The sheen of the fabric makes it look classy, resists stains and wipes clean really easily. Although not the eXomesh carry straps they are still slash proof. I found them to be very comfortable. My issues with the bag are that the outside zip pocket is under the yoga mat/jacket straps making it difficult to access that pocket, which I envision would be frequently. The zipper to that pocket also caught so it was difficult to close. Probably just the one I received. I have and LOVE the Pacsafe Citysafe CX backpack. I really like this brand, just didn't love this bag. Will try another one of their totes.

Excellent price. Great quality. Perfect size. Not too big and not too small.
Amy from San Francisco on February 25, 2019
Great fanny pack. Returned it because the waist strap latch was impossible to work.

This bag appears to be perfect in every way! I carry a Rebecca Minkoff Julian as my everyday purse. But I wanted something a little more rugged with greater capacity for out of town sight seeing. But it had to be cute. And I didn’t want to look like I was hiking the AT. I REALLY wanted a Tumi, but I could not justify the price if I wasn’t going to use it daily. I also wanted something with a water bottle pocket on the outside so that my kids could grab it without opening the whole pack. This bag fits the bill. It is small enough to not be overwhelming. The material has enough sheen to be stylish, the hardware is black and understated. The security features are not inconvenient (unlike my Travelon backpack). The inside is a nice peach color which will allow me to see everything. There are multiple pockets for phones, key/metro cards, and chargers. The straps will adjust to fit my 5’3” self. I haven’t tested the water bottle pockets, but I feel like I could fit a slim aluminum water bottle and a small umbrella in each. I plan on taking this bag to Savannah next week, and I will update my review if it does not meet expectations. Overall, I recommend this bag for day trips and such. I think it would be too small for a business commuter who needs to haul a laptop, gym clothes, etc.
Megan from Winston-Salem, NC on February 22, 2019
This is a very well made fanny pack. I imagine it would be great for travel. I tried to love it but I just felt awkward. Also the strap while adjustable would not fit someone that is more than bout a size 10..i am 5' 4" and 145 lbs I adjusted it more than halfway. So I'm not sure how it would work out for some. Hope this heps!

At the beginning of this year, I found myself without my long trusted NorthFace backpack, which I used to carry all my things and devices during trips or photo escapades. That, and the fact that my daily work backpack let my Wacom get scratched and allowed rain to get inside - and it was decided: A quest for a new work/trip backpack would begin. Constraints: So - I am pretty particular about my backpacks and I was looking for one that would support both my daily commute (hehe) and any longer trips. I had a few really important things that I needed this backpack to do: - Size and weight: I am small, 5’3 human, with a weak back and a whiny mouth but with a ton of devices and shit I carry (hopefully safely), if not every day, then definitely when I travel - needed something to fit the bill. - Device Compartment: A separate, nicely padded compartment that would fit all my three 13” devices safely, ideally with at least a separator. Just for good measure, I wanted the specs to say that it can carry 15” laptops. Did I mention separate from the rest of the backpack? That was the second most common dealbreaker for the models Ive looked at. - Main Compartment: A roomy main compartment, where I could throw either my drone case and a dslr, or my sneakers and a change of clothes for the gym. - Pockets, pockets, pockets for organizing smaller items - ideally somewhere where I could put my keys without scratching anything and a pocket that would be easily accessible but secure, for the wallet and my phone. - Water bottle pockets - not even kidding, that was the third most common dealbreaker. - Chest straps and/or waist straps for back support - I simply need this. - After going through the rainy season in San Francisco - I wanted it to be water resistant/waterproof - and please, no rain cover or other gimmicks, nobody really ever uses those! - And because I am a diva, I needed all this wrapped up into a design that didn’t look big or bulky, looked brand-less and inconspicuous, and generally gave me good aesthetic vibe. This last one was more of a deal breaker than anything else. Methodology: - Tested the following models: Booq Daypack, PacSafe Venturesafe X24, Pacsafe Vibe30, Arc’teryx Arro 22, Arc’teryx Mantic 26, Top Design Core Pack, , various Osprey models, including Bitstream, various The North Face models, including Women’s Surge, Women’s Recon, Women’s Borealis, and a few Dakine, Burton and UA models (which honestly, kinda faded from memory). When I say “tested”, I mean I loaded allllll of the above items, and then fitted the backpack on my shoulders, fastened the straps and walked around for a little while, jumped, ran, jiggled and bended over. You know - a demo of what you normally do with one on your back. - Read a bunch of long reviews, posts, opinions and watched a ton of videos. - Researched the companies for sustainable and environmental-friendly practices. For some, there was not a lot of info to look up. For some others, too much. Results: The PacSafe VentureSafe X24 is the only one which, in all truth, passed all my requirements with flying colors - and then some. There is a device compartment where my 13” laptop, my Wacom and my IPad all can sit comfortably and separated from each other. There’s also space in there to fit my kindle, a few cables and my pencil case. In the main compartment, I can fit the following: a sketchbook, a DJI Spark drone in its case, the remote control, a Canon 5D with a 16-35mm and another 24-70mm on the side, a few clothes, add some more cables and other minor stuff. The same main compartment has 2 side pockets (I lovingly call them L2 and R2) that can accommodate more DSLR lenses (that kinda swept me off my feet tbh), hiking shoes/sandals or gym sneakers, dirty/clean clothes, whathaveyou. The main side pockets (L1 & R1) can be used for either holding wallet, phone, keys or water bottle(s). The zippers are fitted with cute and gadgety security features (go ahead and research yourself for those), there are attachments points on the front, I have a system to securely attach the backpack to a fixture. I am yet to find an official stance on whether it is waterproof or not but it is def. water resistant because I - of course - tested it. Thing is, this Santa’s sack looks deceivingly cute and compact and that last purple one that Zappos had in stock - it’s my baby now! I don’t even like purple but this color is stupidly cute. I had a hunch I’d like it because it was the only backpack that I ordered/tried in other color than black.

Bag was smaller than I anticipated, but I now feel it will be the perfect size. very impressed with all of the safety features.

I wanted to replace my old Pacsafe CS300 and this backpack is an excellent choice. I chose the black color this time instead of a less dirt concealing color. The straps are long though for my frame (the same problem I had with my old Pacsafe). Nevertheless I like it very much. It’s not too big so I won’t be able to over pack and make my back suffer the consequences. While traveling I place a compression bag with extra socks, underware and a t-shirt at the bottom of the backpack and on top of it my camera, cosmetic bag, wallet, cables and chargers bag and inflatable travel pillow. My iPad goes in the special padded compartment. In the font I carry my reading glasses, cell phone, earphones, pen and medicine bag. On one side I carry sun glasses and on the other side I carry a water bottle. It is a good looking backpack and very safe to travel with it on my back instead of moving it to my front for security.

Nice backpack. Have been looking for a backpack that would be sort of like a backpack but at the same time and as a bag for Luggage. And I was surprised by the amazing anti-autopsy system at the airport. Also included is a metal cable, with which you can attach a backpack to the post. Backpack material dense. The lining on the back is very comfortable and comfortable.
Ivan from Ufa on February 03, 2019
I prefer crossbody's. Many these days are deep ie 11 inches from top to bottom. One cannot "see" the items inside but have to "remember" what is inside and "feel" for things. I like the 9 inch height and light color inside making it possible to see everything. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the little stretch pocket on the outside. My iPhone 6 with Mophie battery pack fits right in and WILL NOT fall out even if I turn it upside down. I have not lost my phone since I got this purse! The little slots for an ink pen and a pen flashlight are PERFECT. I can find and replace them so easy. It is LIGHTWEIGHT and big enough to put extra things in that are not a part of my normal "carry". I like the way it hugs my body, no worry about running into things in small, crowded shopping experiences. The strap could be better. I alter my strap by cutting to fit. Overall I am very pleased with the quality.

I own a larger Pacsafe bag I purchased for a trip to Barcelona and Mediterranean cruise, for day tours. I needed a smaller bag for days we are at sea. This bag is perfect. Light weight and the perfect size for my sunglasses and misc items I want to carry with me on the ship. I bought the black with gold trim. Very nice looking bag.
Brenda from Michigan on February 01, 2019
Love this backpack and cannot wait to use it. Got it in Python Green and it's a really fun pop of color. Using it backpacking and while traveling will be great.
Zappos Reviewer on January 30, 2019
Overall I like the bag, but the strap is fraying and I’ve only used it once for 3 hours.
Zappos Reviewer on January 26, 2019
This is my second Pacsafe shoulder bag of this model. I love it for both everyday use and travel. My first bag is a beautiful red / purple color, and I occasionally have to wash it because it shows grime. Now I've got this second one in black, so I can trade them out. I also love the black because it won't show the grime. And somehow it is a bit slimmer in width, yet holds everything the first bag holds. I find the shoulder strap comfortable for what I carry. Love all the security features for travel, like the way the strap can easily be wrapped around a table leg or chair, the locking features, and the RFID blocking pocket.
M from Seattle on January 21, 2019
This bag was everything I was looking for. We were so excited that my mom and grandma both wanted one also. I was getting ready to order them but we noticed the straps are too long. You can’t adjust them down enough to fit the way a backpack is supposed to (for us) I have a short torso and they both have regular sized torsos but are shorter than me. I’m 5’7 they are 5’5 and 5’2. Everything else about the bag is perfect.
Zappos Reviewer on January 13, 2019
I've never really thought about bag security but I'm getting ready to travel and it would be nice to just forget about what's going on with my bag as I will be in buses, trains and other crowded places. I like the secure zippers. It's big enough for my glasses, a small water bottle, a scarf or bandana, maybe even a light down vest if I can stuff it small enough, and the requisite lip balm and hand sanitizer. Need a bag that is small enough to discourage me from loading it up and weigh myself down. nice go-with-everything color. I have not used it at all so will update how sturdy the zipper and etc. will be
