Are Baggallini Bags Worth Buying? My Honest Review

11/03/2023 by Kristin Addis 2 Comments

Full of pockets, lockable, featuring RFID-blocking technology, and durable, are Baggallini bags worth buying and bringing on trips?

A few months ago Baggallini reached out to me and asked me to photograph their bags for an upcoming campaign. I brought them along on our trip to Japan and ended up using several of them as we went. Since then, I’ve continued to bring them on trips and when I’ve shared about them on social media, my DMs and comments are full of women singing their praises.

“I’ve had my Baggallini forever and it’s still going strong!” is what I see the most often.

Here’s everything to know before you buy one, including which one I recommend and use the most:

TLDR: Get the modern pocket crossbody for your everyday travel needs and the Carryall tote for your carry on! It’s a Mary Poppins bag that can fit everything.

Table of Contents

Baggallini Features and Things to Know:

First and foremost, this isn’t a sponsored review. Baggallini did give me bags to photograph, but did not ask me to write this review. I just think they’re cool and worth sharing.

Baggallini reviews

Baggallini straddles the line between style and function without being flashy. For me, the materials are quite casual and not something I would use if I wanted to appear dressed up, but when I’m traveling that’s the opposite of the vibe I want to give off. One of my key safety principles when traveling , particularly alone , is to still express my style but in a non-flashy manner.

That’s what Baggallini, I believe, is going for – function and durability for travel with most of their bags in the $50-$110 range.

Here are some key features:

  • Material: 100% Polyester (Nylon)
  • Pockets: Almost all of the baggs have LOTS of pockets, and some have extra wallets inside as well.
  • Security: The baggs have RFID protection, which prevents scanning credit cards and passport data. Some baggs also have clips for inner wallets so they’re hard for thieves to remove.
  • Durability: These are built to last, with scratch resistant materials and metal clasps and closures.
  • Colors: Mostly neutral colors, including black, grey, navy, tan, royal blue, and cream.
  • Versatility: Many of the baggs can be expanded with zipper expansions, and can be slid onto a suitcase handle via an extra flap on the back.

Baggallini reviews

Which Baggs I Love

Baggallini sent me eight baggs to photograph. Out of all of them, my favorites were the largest and the smallest ones, though the in-betweens could be perfect for you depending on how much you like to bring out with you during the day:

Modern Pocket Crossbody

baggallini review

The Modern Pocket Crossbody is the perfect smaller (8″ W x 8 3/4″ H x 2″ D) day bag for when you only need to bring the essentials. I prefer a cross body bag, especially one with stronger metal clasps like this one, for added security and comfort. The strap is also adjustable and the purse has four pockets, including a hidden one on the back.

I would probably use this one traveling solo in Europe or Southeast Asia where a little more vigilance around purses is wise. It’s not that you have to worry everywhere in Southeast Asia, but bag snatching when the straps are weak happens often in Vietnam ‘s big cities. A smaller bag is also easier to keep track of and hold onto in crowded areas.

This one comes in SO MANY colors .

Expandable Modern Pocket Large Hobo

Baggallini reviews

Very similar to the Modern Pocket, the larger expandable hobo has a zipper in the middle that can allow for a 2-inch expansion. This bagg is 12” wide, 12” tall, and 3” deep (5” expanded) and comes with a grab and go phone/wallet pocket.

Large Carryall Tote

Baggallini reviews

This tote ended up being the perfect carry-on bag for our trip to Japan. We had to pack carefully since we took all public transportation, and this felt like a Mary Poppins bag with endless room. The top could also be folded out or in to create extra room. There were inner pockets for drinks and one zippered pocket, but otherwise this is just a large bag without a lot of extra frills. I liked the simplicity and durability.

It’s indeed a large bag, but will fit in the overhead bin and unless you overstuff it, should also fit under the seat in front of you.

Women’s Everywhere Crossbody

baggallini review

If you’re looking for a slightly larger-but-still-small purse with pockets galore, the Women’s Everywhere Crossbody delivers. It measures 11″ W x 9″ H x 4 1/2″ D and has two outer zippers, a drink sleeve, an outer buttoning pocket, an inner clip-in phone/wallet holder, and adjustable cross body strap. Pictured above is the sterling shimmer color. It’s one of my most-used travel purses at the moment.

3-In-1 Convertible Backpack With RFID Phone Wristlet

baggallini review

Out of all of the baggs, the most useful as a carry-on would be the 3-in-1 convertible backpack. I have a similar bag here, but it’s more of a duffel that I wish were the backpack. I like the extensive pockets of the convertible backpack, the back flap that allows it to slide onto a suitcase handle (this is KEY!), and the possibility of wearing it as a backpack. Sometimes a duffel just doesn’t cut it and can feel heavy on the shoulders, so the option to change it up is great!

My Experience with Baggallini

baggallini review

This is a great travel bag, and the fact that so many of my audience members reached out saying they’d had theirs for a decade plus speaks volumes. Sometimes, when I’m hired to photograph products, I don’t always hold onto them or will just pick a few to keep. In this case I’m still using and loving the Large Carryall Tote and kept the duffel as well (though I wish it were the convertible backpack!)

Since I’ve started using them, I’ve noticed not only do they hold up well, but they don’t stain easily, don’t scuff or snag, and the zippers don’t wear down or get stuck. The nylon material is great for a travel bag. It cleans easily and I’m not worried about it getting roughed up during travel. IMHO, this is a great travel bag that doesn’t break the bank.

I love Baggelini bags. I’ve used mine (purse) for years now. It’s gray crossbody bag and if I get a stain on it I empty it out and throw it in the washer and then in the dryer. It looks like new!! I love all the pockets and credit card storage so I don’t need to carry a wallet. ILOVE my Baggellini!

Why I Don’t Take Many Trips Without These 3 Essential Baggallini Bags 

baggallini travel bags

  • News and Tips
  • Travel Products

If you travel, you know how important the right bag (or bags) is. That’s why I often reach for my essential Baggallini bags — a crossbody purse and a durable, rightly sized tote bag. They’re great for everything from an international adventure to a road trip to an overnight trip.

I took a Baggallini crossbody purse and tote bag on the biking trip my husband Dean and I took to Slovenia, Austria, and Italy . I also took the bags on our biking trip to Ireland, where we traveled from southern Cork to the Cliffs of Moher , then to the Aran Islands , and the lovely northwestern Connemara Region . 

I reached for my Baggallini bags again when Dean and I headed out on road trips across the United States, and they were with me as we were strolling Joe Riley Waterfront Park in Charleston; touring the Continental Divide in Wyoming; grabbing lunch at the Crab Shack on Tybee Island , Georgia; exploring Grand Prismatic Spring (my favorite) in Yellowstone National Park, traipsing across America’s highest suspension footbridge at Grandfather Mountain in North Carolina; hiking Patapsco Valley State Park near Ellicott City, Maryland , and more.

I purchased my first Baggallini bag years ago and have been adding it to my collection ever since. I own three Baggallini purses (black, tan, and black print) and a gray tote bag. Guess you could say I’m a fan!

Here are the bags I use and enjoy.

The Criss Cross Body bagg

Criss Cross Bagg

The Baggallini Criss Cross Bagg  is aptly named because the purse has two primary compartments that visually cross each other. There’s also a third place for storage between the compartments.

Key Features

  • Lightweight, water-resistant nylon or printed fabric
  • Interior organization and multifunctional pockets
  • Quick access phone pocket
  • Four credit card slots
  • 52 inch adjustable crossbody strap
  • Exterior dimensions: 11 inches wide x 10 inches high x 3 inches deep
  • Weight: 9 ounces

I purchased my other Baggallini bags years ago (they last!) and the exact bags I have are no longer available, but here is a similar style.

Baggalini Bag

Cross Over Crossbody

This Cross Over Crossbody  purse is like the tan and black print bags I have. This updated design w idens at the bottom to maximize storage capability, which is a smart idea.

  • Removable wristlet included
  • RFID Protection
  • Exterior dimensions: 11 inches wide x 8.5 inches high x 4.5 inches deep
  • Weight: 14 ounces

Last but not least, here is the tote bag that is closest to the one I have.

baggallini travel bags

Avenue Tote Bag

This Avenue Tote Bag  is a great size. I use my tote bag often, including my carry-on bag on international flights, and it’s perfect for that.

  • Quick access phone pocket and padded laptop pocket
  • Sleeve for luggage handle
  • 52 inch removable, adjustable crossbody strap
  • Exterior dimensions: 18 inches wide x 12 inches high x 5.5 inches deep
  • Weight: 1 pound, 4 ounces

Here are 13 reasons why I love my Baggallini bags.

Author with her Baggallini bag in Charleston

1. Travel-Friendly Sizes

These bags are sized to hold everything I need without being too bulky. That means I can get what I need into and out of my crossbody purse and tote bag without a struggle.  

2. Lightweight

The fabric is lightweight, so I’m not weighed down when we are on the go. Dean and I like to “see what there is to see” when we travel, and I need a bag that keeps up. Of course, I can’t blame Baggallini for what these bags weigh once I’ve filled them, but that’s another story for another day.

3. Great Design

These bags are well-designed. Numerous exterior compartments help me stay organized. Inside, there’s a standard zippered pocket for items I want to keep more secure. I think these bags are practical, functional, and beautiful.

Author using a Baggallini bag on Grandfather Mountain, North Carolina

4. Durability

These bags are durable. In all our travels , they hold up to being tossed around and/or on the car floor and/or squished in the back of the car when someone (who shall remain nameless, but it’s not Dean) overpacks. Since Dean “sees in cubes,” he can pack a car to maximize square footage and the soft-sided tote bag sometimes ends up pressed in between more rigid things.

5. RFID Assurance

The inside, zippered pocket on the Cross Over Crossbody bag is RFID protected, which sounds like a good idea when I read the Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) description from the Department of Homeland Security . Plus, extra assurance against credit card theft never hurts. 

6. Water-Resistant Nylon Fabric

Sometimes weather forecasters don’t get it right and you get stuck in a surprise rain shower. The nylon fabric of these bags repels water. They are not waterproof, but they are water resistant, and that helps when the weather is a surprise.

Author using a Baggallini bag at The Crab Shack on Tybee Island, Georgia

7. Easy Care

With a Baggallini bag, you don’t have to worry about every spill. The Cross Over Crossbody Bag needs to be spot cleaned; the Criss Cross Bag and Avenue Tote are machine washable. Find details on both methods here . Either way, these bags are easy to care for and clean.

8. Lots Of Colors

Sometimes, you want a basic, classic color that pairs effortlessly with everything. Sometimes, you want a bag that makes more of a statement. Perhaps that’s why I find myself with three Baggallini crossbody purses!

In any case, Baggallini has got you covered. As of this writing, the crossbody purses come in at least six colors and the tote bag has a dozen colors and patterns to choose from. There’s sure to be one that’s just right for you.

9. High Quality

The quality of these bags is obvious. The hardware is made of metal, the zippers are fluid and smooth open-and-close, the seams are sturdy, and the bags can hold up to the rigors of travel.

10. Baggallini’s One-Year Warranty

Baggallini backs their quality with a one-year warranty . I’ve never had to take them up on this, but it’s reassuring to know they stand behind their products.

11. Free Replacement Strap And Hardware Policy

Baggallini has a generous replacement strap and hardware policy. “If the style is still available, we can provide replacement straps for products that have a detachable strap, missing or lost screws from the turn toggle, or missing or lost buckles, at no extra charge.” See the website for full details.  

12. Baggallini’s Sale Section

What’s better than buying a beautiful, quality Baggallini bagg? Buying one on sale. Check the sale section of their website and see what’s being offered, because it changes from time to time. Who doesn’t love a deal?  

13. The Baggallini Story

The Baggallini story is unique. “Our entrepreneurial female founders were two global travelers who leveraged insights from around the world to create bags that help women feel organized, confident, and prepared for anything, whether it be a trip around the block or the globe.” 

Note: “Baggs” is not a typo. This is how Baggallini refers to their bags, or should I say baggs?

Those are the 13 reasons why I consider my Baggallini crossbody purses and tote bags my travel essentials, and I don’t take many trips without them.

When you travel across town or the world, an important part of travel is having the right gear and staying organized. A trip loses its luster when you are constantly misplacing things and digging through your bags to try to find something you need. That’s where Baggallini comes in.

To me, the Baggallini name represents well-designed, quality bags. The next time you plan to set out to explore new destinations, discover new experiences, and savor the journey along the way, make sure your bags are working for you. With a bag from Baggallini (or several), you’ll be ready to go the distance.

Best overall anti-theft bag

Travelon messenger bag.

  • Anti-slash compartment and straps
  • Protected card and passport compartment
  • RFID-blocking pockets
  • Locking zippers
  • Roomy interior
  • Shoulder strap isn't very comfortable when carrying a water bottle plus a full bag
  • Zippers aren't leak-proof

Thanks to thorough testing by our Product Testing Team, Travelon products earned high praise and several top spots, including the best overall anti-theft bag. The team awarded the Travelon Messenger Bag the top spot for its anti-theft features, durability, value and functionality.

Inside this bag’s roomy main compartment, you’ll find an internal zipping pocket, a split-side pocket and a strap with an attached flashlight so you can store and easily find all of your essentials. Two zippered side pockets, an expanding back pocket and a front pocket provide additional storage space. The entire bag features a protective mesh layer underneath the nylon fabric to protect against slashing, and the strap boasts slash-resistant wiring. It also has RFID technology and locking zippers for extra protection.

Our testers found this bag to be sturdy and durable, noting its strong latches and easy-to-operate zippers. And when they took a box cutter to it, they were impressed when it didn’t cut all the way through the strap or the front compartment pocket.

Another feature that landed this bag at the top of our list is its water resistance. Our testers found that water beaded off the material when it was sprayed. That being said, this bag is not completely waterproof. When sitting on a wet counter, the water did soak into the outer layer; however, the interior remained dry. They also found that the zippers are not leak-proof. The book inside the bag got wet from the top so you’ll want to be mindful if you’re traveling in wet conditions.

Something else to consider is the comfort of this bag. The team pointed out that the bag’s strap was rather scratchy, rigid, and uncomfortable when the bag was maxed out. “This put strain on my shoulder near my neck when carrying 5.5 pounds. The strap felt narrow and dug in when worn as a crossbody bag. It felt much more comfortable when I removed the full water bottle,” says Sheri Kaz , associate product reviews editor, home & garden, who is part of the Product Testing Team.

Overall, the Travelon Messenger Bag is a sturdy and functional bag with effective anti-theft features, making it a smart investment for your next trip. Plus, its angular design and squared-off corners give it a tidy appearance that appeals to all types of travelers.

Best budget anti-theft bag

Travelon mini shoulder bag.

  • Anti-slash panels and straps
  • RFID-blocking card slots
  • Water- and dirt-resistant fabric
  • Small capacity
  • No padding on straps

If you’re looking for an anti-theft bag option that won’t break the bank, this shoulder bag from Travelon fits the bill. With over 5,700 five-star ratings, it’s not hard to see why travelers love it. The bag provides the storage and security needed while traveling at an affordable price point .

“This little crossbody shoulder bag is great for everyday use and traveling light . It doesn’t hold a lot but can accommodate a phone, glasses, wallet and other small essentials you would normally carry in a purse,” explains Kaz. While small in size, it doesn’t lack any anti-theft features. The main zipper locks to keep belongings safe while the lower part of the bag and straps feature mesh paneling and slash-resistant wiring.

In the lab, our Product Testing Team was impressed by how well this little bag held up to a box cutter. After a couple of slashes, the team noted that the box cutter didn’t cut through the front compartment or bottom of the bag. Not only that, but they could barely make out any cut marks.

The team also sprayed this bag with water to see how it would fare in wet conditions. They found that the water repelled for a second, then soaked in. However, they were impressed by the fact that although the water soaked into the outside of the bag, the interior remained dry.

In addition to its anti-theft features and water-resistant material, the bag also has thoughtful design details: The interior fabric is a lighter color to make it easier to find what you’re looking for in a pinch, and it even comes with a tethered key clip with an light-emitting diode (LED) light. Plus, it won’t dig into your shoulders. “Because this is a light-duty purse, it’s comfortable to wear,” says Kaz. “I filled it with 2.6 pounds of items and it stayed comfy as a crossbody bag. It didn’t dig in as much as the messenger bag with heavier contents.” Living up to its name, the design of this classic shoulder bag is simple enough to complement any outfit.

Best anti-theft backpack

Baggallini securtex anti-theft vacation backpack.

  • Comfortable to wear even when full
  • Roomy and functional interior
  • Feels sturdy and durable
  • Interior slash-resistant panels
  • RFID-protected pockets
  • Zippers clip onto a D-ring rather than lock

According to our Product Testing Team, Baggallini combines style with anti-theft features, and this sturdy vacation backpack is no exception. It may be on the smaller side, but it holds more than you think. “This mid-size backpack has plenty of functional space and compartments to keep my stuff organized,” says Kaz. With lots of pockets, compartments and convenient open pockets on the sides, there’s a spot for everything you need throughout the day. The back pocket holds a tablet while the main compartment fits up to a 13-inch laptop.

Our team was especially impressed by the RFID-lined, built-in wallet . “The wallet pocket (located on the backside of the backpack that would rest against the body) is impressively designed. It’s an expanding pocket with two inner zip pockets and a cardholder, and a great RFID-protected place to store money, passports and credit cards,” says our Product Testing Team.

In addition to its roomy and functional interior, this bag’s overall construction really impressed our testers. They pointed out the bag’s sturdy handle, consistent stitching and padded exterior, which made this bag comfortable to wear even when full. And when they took a box cutter to it, the team was delighted to find that it didn’t leave any marks on the main compartment, and only a slight mark and tiny cut on the strap.

Another feature that sets this backpack apart is the ability to charge your phone without having to hold the portable charger. A discreetly delightful design feature allows you to feed charging cords through a small grommet hole in the bag.

Best anti-theft crossbody

Baggallini securtex anti-theft memento crossbody bag.

  • Feels soft on your neck
  • Lightweight
  • Cut-resistant straps
  • Feels durable and well-made
  • Inner layer is not slash-proof

Looking for a good everyday bag? This lightweight crossbody bag from Baggallini , which our testers described as “pretty chic and compact for an anti-theft bag,” is it. The team loved the soft material, which felt comfortable resting around their necks, as well as all of the pockets and compartments.

“I like the compact size of this bag. It’s perfect for everyday use when you want to travel light. I won’t have to worry when in a crowded stadium or packed event. I appreciate the wide openings, and the compartments are perfect for keeping items organized and easy to access,” shares Kaz.

While the team notes that this bag feels durable and well-made, they pointed out that it’s not entirely slash-proof. “For the interior pocket, it [the box cutter] cut the lining and the slash-proof layer (i.e., the first two layers) but didn’t make it to the outside,” explains the Product Testing Team. “The outer layer is slash-proof but not the inner layer, contrary to what they say on the website.” The team goes on to add that the box cutter left a slight mark on the strap but wasn’t actually able to cut through it. A second slash also wasn’t able to cut through the strap, though it did lead to some fraying.

Best anti-theft waist pack

Travelon waist pack.

  • Silky-soft waist strap
  • Fits waists up to 55 inches
  • RFID-blocking internal pocket
  • Built-in flashlight
  • Slash-resistant material
  • Not many organizational pockets

A hands-free waist bag, also known as a belt bag , is a popular option for travelers. Not only do they keep your essentials close, but in spite of their size they hold quite a bit. If you’re in the market for something convenient with added protection, then this Travelon Anti-Theft Waist Pack is your best bet.

What this simple bag lacks in style, it makes up for in functionality and practicality. Its anti-theft features include a slash-resistant body and strap, RFID-blocking compartment and a buckle that’s hidden by a nylon covering. In the lab, the team’s box cutter didn’t cut through the strap or the compartments, and they noted that this bag felt more durable than other Travelon bags they tested.

Our team was thoroughly impressed by this bag’s adjustable waist strap. They said that it felt heavy-duty yet was still silky and smooth unlike other Travelon straps, which they described as rigid and scratchy. They also noted that because the pack and the buckles are 16 inches, anyone with up to a 55-inch waist could wear it.

Other callout features include water resistance (water fully beaded up and repelled during our tests), a built-in flashlight, a tuck-away mesh water-bottle holder and an elastic loop that holds the strap’s tail in place. “I like the tuck-away mesh bottle holder, and the silky-soft strap feels good against my skin. I also appreciate an open pocket for easy access to my phone for picture-taking,” says Kaz.

The first has an interior mesh zippered pocket while the main zippered compartment has two slit pockets as well as a zip pocket. “This pack is great for hikers, bike riders or anyone who likes their belongings close to the body,” says Kaz.

The material is not only slash-proof—our box cutter left a mark on the strap but didn’t cut through it at all. On the front, the box cutter barely left a mark at all, but it also contains discarded fishing nets and other nylon waste. The sling style makes the bag versatile: Wear it on your back or swing it around to wear it across the front. Our testers noted that wearing this bag across your right shoulder is really the only way to easily access the zippers, meaning this is ideal for lefties.

Other noteworthy features include durable metal zippers with a Roobar locking system, a locking buckle, PopNLock security clips and water-resistant material. Overall, we found this to be a handy alternative to backpacks.

Best anti-theft purse

Arden cove crissy full crossbody with locking clasps strap.

  • Customizable
  • Made entirely of RFID-blocking material
  • Slash-resistant adjustable straps
  • Large main compartment with organizational pockets
  • Comfortable to wear
  • One-year warranty
  • Strap can be difficult to adjust

Though practical and functional, many of the best anti-theft bags aren’t exactly stylish. Enter the Arden Cove Crissy crossbody bag . Not only is this anti-theft purse loaded safety features, it’s customizable, too. “I love the options for this stylish purse. With 12 colors and six straps, you can really customize your look. Plus, it gives me peace of mind with the added security features when I’m out on the town. Five stars for fashion and safety,” raves Kaz.

In addition to being described by our testing team as feminine and stylish, this bag proved comfortable to wear and held up well in the Testing Lab. As advertised, this bag repels water and our box cutter was unable to cut through the strap, though it did cut the edges. And while the straps are detachable, a thief won’t be able to come along and swipe it. That’s because the strap hooks have an extra security feature (a metal carabiner with a screw) to keep them solidly in place.

Before adding this bag to your cart, you should know that it’s on the pricier side at $189. However, our testing team notes that this bag is very nice and durable. Plus, its thoughtful design features, like metal feet and satin polyester lining, give it a high-quality feel.

Best convertible anti-theft bag

Pacsafe cx anti-theft convertible backpack.

  • Can be worn as a backpack or purse
  • RFID-safe internal zippered pocket
  • Innovative Roobar-style locking zipper system
  • Made from regenerated nylon
  • Trendy, puffy style
  • No water bottle holder

When it comes to the best anti-theft bags, you can’t go wrong with Pacsafe. “Overall, Pacsafe was our favorite brand. The anti-theft locks and slash-proof features were outstanding,” says our Product Testing Team, who highly recommends this Pacsafe convertible backpack due to its versatility, style, sustainability and, of course, its anti-theft features.

This bag, which is made of regenerated nylon, can be worn as a backpack or folded down into a purse. Our team appreciated the color choices and trendy puffy look, as well as the soft straps and convenient pockets. They were especially impressed by this bag’s Roobar-style locking system. This system, which our teams hails as a “superior locking system,” creates a lockdown point for zippers with interlocking zip pullers, keeping your belongings safe from pickpockets.

And though it is soft and puffy, this bag is much tougher than it looks. According to our team, the box cutter didn’t even leave a mark on the strap when they tried slashing it. It also wasn’t able to cut all the way through to the interior of the bag, though it did leave a big gash when they cut the front pocket and back of the bag. Overall, the team was impressed by this bag’s solid performance.

Best day-to-night anti-theft bag

Travelon convertible waist/crossbody bag.

  • Can be worn as a crossbody bag or waist pack
  • RFID-blocking card slots and passport pocket
  • Tethered interior key clip with LED light
  • Water and dirt-resistant fabric
  • Strap hooks are very small

A versatile bag, like the Travelon convertible crossbody and waist pack , is a travel essential. It can be worn as a crossbody bag or waist pack, making it easy and comfortable to take from day to night. “I really liked the way this felt on the body, especially as a waist pack. It wasn’t bulky, but the size and shape afforded ample room for sunglasses, phone, sunscreen and more,” shares Kaz. “It’s fashionable enough for everyday or evening use without a big buckle like other waist packs. The thin shoulder strap is a bit scratchy, but not as thick as the other Travelon ‘purses.’ As a result, it was more comfortable all around.”

In addition to its high marks for style and comfort, this bag also performed well in our Testing Lab. It proved to be water-resistant and held up to the team’s slashing attempts. The box cutter didn’t cut through the bag or the straps, though it did leave behind cut marks and damage to the outer rim of the strap. “If you really wanted to cut it, you would probably have to saw through it,” assures the Product Testing Team.

Though it fared well in the lab, our team felt that the attention to detail on this bag wasn’t that great. They pointed out subpar stitching and extra-small strap hooks, which led them to question the durability and longevity of this bag. As a result, they caution against overstuffing it.

Best splurge anti-theft bag

Pacsafe cx anti-theft backpack.

  • Soft padded straps allow for all-day wear
  • Roomy, organized interior
  • RFID-blocking material
  • Box cutter sliced through first layer

Love the look of the Pacsafe convertible backpack but don’t necessarily need something convertible? You’re in luck. This Pacsafe CX backpack is the brand’s non-convertible alternative. This stylish backpack features a roomy interior with plenty of organizational pockets and a structured top, and it’s loaded with anti-theft features.

“I love how this roomy backpack has a structured top that stays open when unzipped. Plus, it stands upright, so it’s easy to pack,” raves Kaz. “It’s so much easier than rifling through a floppy-topped bag, and the laptop slides in and out in seconds. No more fumbling around blindly looking for the contents. The light gray interior helps to keep me organized because it’s easy to see, and the pockets are laid out conveniently. I highly recommend this bag.” In addition to keeping your belongings organized and accessible, Kaz notes that this bag has nice padded straps that make it comfortable to wear.

And just like the brand’s convertible backpack, this bag held up extremely well to our tests. The box cutter sliced the first layer of the backpack but didn’t make it all the way through or even to the padding. Additionally, there was no damage to the straps. When you consider the bag’s locking zippers and water-resistant material, you’ve got a worthy travel backpack for your next big adventure.

Best unisex anti-theft bag

Pacsafe go anti-theft crossbody bag.

  • Gender-neutral design
  • Slash-resistant panels and strap
  • Securable zippers
  • Sustainably made
  • Strap is made of rough, scratchy material

If backpacks aren’t your cup of tea but you don’t want to rock a purse on your next trip, the Pacsafe Go crossbody bag is a quality option. Its minimalist, gender-neutral design makes it appealing to both men and women while eco-conscious travelers will appreciate the fact that this bag is made from seven recycled plastic bottles.

Our team was impressed by the durability and overall construction of this bag, noting that during lab tests, virtually no marks were left behind by the box cutter on the bag or the strap. They also noted that although the strap felt rough and scratchy, the bag wasn’t too uncomfortable or heavy on our tester’s shoulders.

Another notable feature is this bag’s locking zippers. The team noted that the dock lock, which serves as a lockdown point for zippers, takes a little maneuvering but works well. And the brand’s patented TurnNLock security hook seems durable and easy to use.

Shop on Solgaard

Best anti-theft bag for commuters

Solgaard lifepack backpack.

  • Padded straps and back make it comfortable for all-day wear
  • Solar-powered battery pack
  • Comes with a real lock
  • Quality construction
  • Attractive design
  • Two-year warranty
  • No anti-slash components or RFID protection

There’s a reason why the Lifepack Backpack is Solgaard’s flagship product. Let’s talk about its anti-theft features first. The sturdy and durable backpack features a patented anti-theft cable lock with coil design and four secret pockets built into the backpack—two on the back and two card slots on the straps—to keep things hidden but easily accessible.

Since this bag doesn’t claim to have any anti-slash components, our Product Testing Team didn’t take a box cutter to it. It also doesn’t have any RFID-blocking capabilities. So, if you’re looking for the best anti-theft bag with those capabilities, then you’ll likely want to go with one of the other options on our list. But if locks and hidden pockets are all you need, then continue on.

According to our testing team, this Solgaard bag was comfortable to wear even while carrying around 11 pounds of stuff. “The padding on the straps and back makes it feel very sturdy and structured, which takes some of the weight off your back,” explains the Product Testing Team. And what more could commuters ask for than a comfy backpack when they’re shlepping back and forth to the office?

Actually, there’s plenty more. One of this smart bag’s shining features is that it comes with a solar-powered, TSA-approved power bank that goes right on the front of the backpack, charging via the sun’s rays while exploring. The backpack’s “work” and “life” compartments and multiple pockets make it an ideal option for those working while traveling or even as an everyday work bag .”Whether you’re a city commuter or nature lover, the Solgaard Lifepack has plenty of hidden features you’ll appreciate when traveling through life. We love the thoughtful design and durability built into this backpack, and I felt supported when wearing it,” says Kaz.

What to look for when buying an anti-theft bag

There are a few things to keep in mind while shopping for the best anti-theft bag, with the first being the weight. The last thing you want is to lug around a heavy bag when exploring the local scene. Another thing to consider is the material. Many anti-theft bags these days feature water-resistant nylon, making it easy to clean if there’s a spill. It also keeps things dry if there’s a sudden downpour. Next up is style. The good news is that options come in all shapes and sizes. From backpacks to shoulder bags to crossbody bags, it’s not hard to find a style that fits your taste on your next flight or trip.

Types of anti-theft bag safety features

Locking zippers:  A standard feature, locking zippers have small latches to prevent pickpockets from opening the bag too easily.

Slash-proof material:  To prevent thieves from cutting the straps, anti-theft travel bags will often have wire built inside the straps and feature material that can’t be slashed.

Locking hardware: If you’re into items like a portable door lock , then you’ll definitely opt for locking hardware. Similar to how you would lock a bike, locking hardware secures the bag to an object, like a chair or table, to prevent thieves from running off with the bag when it’s not being worn.

RFID lining: Many bags have RFID lining to ensure credit card information and passports can’t be accessed electronically with a scanning device or reader.

Secret pockets:  Secret compartments on the straps or within the bag itself keep important items hidden and safe.

Why you should trust us

Our editors and Product Testing Team have years of experience testing and evaluating everything from the best carry-on bags  on the market to the  best underseat luggage and everything in between. Our product-testing experts on the Product Testing Team spent around 36 hours conducting firsthand research in our Testing Lab, performing roughly seven tests on each product. Of the 15 anti-theft bags the team tested, only 12 made the list since, as we strive to recommend the very best products using honest and fair testing practices. Moreover, we never recommend a product we don’t love, regardless of how popular the brand or model.

How we chose the best anti-theft bags

As shopping experts, our only job is to help you find a winning product. Our Product Testing Team tested 15 anti-theft bags in our studio. With in-depth research and a rubric that tested anti-theft capabilities, comfort and wearability, durability, capacity and functionality, we narrowed that list from 15 to 12.

Our testers began by crowdsourcing travel essentials—such as umbrellas, books, sunscreen, tablets, Chapstick, glasses, sweatshirts, playbills, water bottles, credit cards and more—to stuff these bags with true-to-life contents that would allow our team to accurately and fairly assess performance. They sprayed the bags with water to see how they’d fare in wet weather conditions and locked and unlocked various locking zippers and compartments, evaluating both ease of use and level of security. The team even took a box cutter to all but one of these bags (because one bag didn’t claim to have anti-slash technology) so they could confidently speak to each bag’s anti-theft capabilities. With thorough testing and recognition of notable differences, we’re confident in these 12 best anti-theft bag picks.

Are anti-theft bags worth it?

With thieves commonly targeting tourists, they’re a useful option for keeping belongings safe and secure while exploring a new (or familiar) destination. These days, there are plenty of options in a variety of sizes, styles and colors that are as secure as they are stylish. Ultimately, whether it’s worth it is up to each individual, but if security is a concern or if you want some extra peace of mind, an anti-theft travel bag is something you’ll never want to travel without .

How common is bag theft?

Unfortunately, bag theft and pickpocketing are prevalent, especially in places with a lot of people. “Theft happens anywhere and tourist hotspots are convenient places for criminals to target holidaymakers’ wallets and purses whilst they are busy taking in the sites,” shares Greg Wilson, founder and CEO of Quotezone.co.uk, in the European Pickpocketing Index .

While European cities are often popular travel destinations, Quotezone.co.uk analyzed thousands of online travel reviews to “rank the most popular European holiday destinations by the proportion of pickpocketing mentions in visitor reviews of each country’s top five tourist attractions,” and Italy, France and the Netherlands topped the list. According to Irish Examiner , “Every day, an estimated 400,000 travelers are victims of pickpockets somewhere in the world.”

Jenna Fischer/Instagram

Jenna Fischer is out of the office and playing tourist. 

The Office alum recently shared photos on Instagram from her visit to Huntington Library in Pasadena, California, and her followers couldn’t help but notice her cute museum touring outfit, which included a statement belt bag. A hands-free bag is a convenient way to carry essentials, plus it’s the ideal casual accessory to complete any daytime look. 

For the occasion, Fischer styled hers with a T-shirt, flare-leg jeans, and a printed bucket hat to help shield the sun. Her bag is equal parts practical and stylish thanks to a thick strap that won’t dig into your shoulders. The strap also appears to be removable, making for a genius style hack — you can easily swap out the strap according to your outfit.

15 Stadium-Approved Clear Bags for Summer Concerts and Games

By Taylor Mead and Megan duBois

Image may contain Accessories Bag Handbag Purse Blouse Clothing Adult and Person

The last thing anyone wants to do on the day of a long-awaited festival , concert, or game is to rush around frantically searching for a stadium-approved bag. You’ve secured the tickets, planned the perfect outfit, but did you remember the clear bag policy ? Don’t worry, we’ve forgotten before, too.

According to the NFL , clear stadium bags should not exceed 6"D x 12"W x 12"H. This measurement includes clear backpacks , fanny packs , and cinch bags. Additionally, no buckles, hardware, or decor can conceal the interior of the bag and logos should only be on one side of the bag. Many other sports leagues, whether they play in NFL stadiums or not, are also starting to adopt this clear bag measurement as a standard.

It’s not just stadiums that have this policy either. More and more tourist attractions are requiring clear bags. So if you’re visiting places like the Pearl Harbor National Memorial in Hawaii, be sure you have a clear bag to take with you (otherwise you will need to take the bag to the nearby paid storage facility).

The good news: As this policy becomes more commonplace at venues, cute clear bags are becoming easier to find. Even better? The options keep getting upgrades, which means it doesn’t have to ruin your outfit. From see-through backpacks and fanny packs to totes and crossbody bags, we found options that are equally stylish and practical. Read on for 15 of our favorites—trust us, they’re ones you’ll actually want to use again once the event is over.

This gallery has been updated with new information since its original publish date.

Our top picks:

  • Best under $20: Uspeclare clear purse
  • Best crossbody bag: Lululemon belt bag
  • Best slim bag: Baggallini crossbody
  • Best evening bag: WJCD clear clutch
  • Most versatile bag: May Tree clear bag

Re-wear the adjustable bag on your waist or across your shoulder when running errands or grabbing a hotel breakfast.
