The Best Anti-Theft Backpacks and Slide Bags

When it comes to travel or commute only with essential things, a backpack can give you the comfort and easiness you need. The good thing about backpacks is that they allow you to have your important belongings close to you, while keeping your hands free.

However, since they are supposed to be carried on your back, it is impossible to have your backpack always under your supervision. That is why more and more people look for a bag that features anti-theft elements to travel safely wherever they go.

Some of the features of these anti-theft backpacks are:

  • hidden zippers
  • TSA locks
  • RFID pockets
  • slash-resistant fabric

But we should not forget about comfort when it comes to choosing a backpack, since we expect to carry our important and heavy belongings with us. That is why we should consider other important features, such as resistant and breathable fabrics or padded stripes that help relieve the weight on our shoulders.

We have searched for the best backpacks that can offer both comfort and some peace of mind. The result is this list we want to share with you.
