I have one word; Brilliant.

This bag is my travel bag, my work bag, and my portable safe, all in one. No joke. My items have never felt so secure thanks to this backpack. I carry it everywhere with me, I never leave my house without it. If you’re thinking about getting the LocTote Flak Sack but you’re put off by the price, my advice would be to safe up and invest in one as this backpack, if taken care of, could last you your lifetime.

The idea came about as the founder realized an unmet niche – for travellers are on the go who need their essentials with them but are unable to constantly monitor them. During a beach vacation, the founder left his valuables on the beach and went to the water. He then saw someone rummage through his belongings. So he shouted and ran back to shore.

I have been searching for the perfect crossbody bag for a long time. I am a photographer and after carrying heavy equipment around my neck I do not like to carry a heavy purse. A lightweight crossbody is my preferred handbag of choice. I prefer a built in credit card slot since I don’t like the bulk or weight of a wallet. I have had a hard time finding a crossbody with credit card slots that did not look cheap or tacky.

I love this bag. It has clean, stylish lines. I get lots of compliments when I am out in public. There is a pocket for everything. Easy access to the credit card slots when making purchases. I usually keep my sunglasses in one of the two outside, expandable side pockets that was designed for a water bottle. I can fit my fire tablet or iPad easily in main compartment.

5. Anti-theft crossbody / sling bag

OutdoorMaster aims to make the most functional and high-quality products at the best possible prices. At only USD 16, this is one of the most affordable travel/anti-theft sling bags, yet packs one hell of a punch in the features it provides.

One user had this to say:

This bag is almost exactly what I’ve been looking for. I use it for every day, and it has really nice organization and weight distribution. It’s big enough to carry around anything I’d want, including fitting my water bottle on the side, but small enough you don’t feel like you’re carrying a back pack. I got it to replace a small messenger bag I’d been using that was starting to bother my shoulder. This is holding everything I had in that bag, but is far more comfortable when worn walking around for a few hours.

I got the gray and think it’s pretty attractive. It almost looks like it’s made from something other than nylon.

Fit a 24 oz Contigo water bottle in the side pocket, snugly but easily.

I especially like the little pocket on the strap that fits a transit card perfectly, and other small things you might want quickly like chapstick, and the hidden pocket that is a nice secure place for my wallet.

Key features:

  • Small and lightweight: it is made of a lightweight canvas like polyester material
  • Spacious: main pocket can fit a camera, iPad or small laptop (12 inches). Also comes with several smart organizer pockets and an external water bottle holder

  • Reversible shoulder strap: it doesn’t matter if you are a lefty or righty, you can swap the large, softly padded shoulder strap either side
  • Breathable ribbon: helps to reduce sweating and thus, increase comfort
  • Warranty: 6 months 100% satisfaction guarantee warranty

One user had this to say:

Great travel purse. I would buy it again and definitely recommend it to others. I bought this when going to Italy and was very pleased with the functionality of the purse. It has an RFID pocket that held 4 passports very easily. It has a nice wide strap that is comfortable.

The purse itself is roomy inside. There is a back area sectioned off that would easily fit an IPAD or even my Apple MacAir computer. I used it for a thick stack of paperwork I had printed off for my trip. It is a big larger than most of the travel purses that I saw, but that is exactly what I wanted. I hate having to take everything out of a purse to be able to get to something on the bottom. You won’t have that problem with this purse. There are several little pockets inside that zip up and a clip to hold a pair of keys.

The nylon material on the outside of the bag came in handy when it rained on us unexpectedly and when we ate at a place that had no tables and the condiments from a sandwich dripped all over the bag. I wiped it off and was good to go. Highly recommend this purse.
