10 Anti-Theft Bags for Female Travelers on a Budget 2022

Female travelers can be some of the biggest targets for petty theft and scams. Typical bags and purses are made for easy access which means scammers and thieves don’t have to work too hard to access your valuables. It’s hard to enjoy your trip when all you’re thinking about is getting robbed. This is the main reason that you should invest in an anti-theft bag. This doesn’t mean that you can’t still be a victim of theft, but it does make it more difficult to access your valuables. It’s important to keep in mind that thieves are very smart and usually work in teams. They have studied what people to target and how to distract those people when they are in action.

WHAT SHOULD AN ANTI-THEFT BAG INCLUDE?

Before purchasing an anti-theft bag, you should make sure that the bag includes the following:

Slash-resistant Material

When looking for an anti-theft bag, you want to make sure that it was made with slash-resistant material. This is a type of material made with a combination of fibers that makes the bag more difficult to cut through. The best anti-theft bags are the military-grade ones that are almost impossible to cut through.

Bags made out of military-grade material known as HMWPE (high molecular weight polyethylene) are on a level 5 of the cut rating meaning they are almost impossible to cut or get into. This kind of fabric should also be what the straps of your purse are made out of.

RFID-Blocking technology

Any anti-theft bag that you are thinking of purchasing should come with radio frequency identification. Almost every card has a chip attached to it these days, so you want to make sure that your cards cannot easily be scanned. Bags that include these technologies take care of that and stop scammers from being able to scan your information. Most anti-theft purses and bags include this technology, but you always want to make sure that you check the label to confirm this.

Locks

Some anti-theft bags don’t contain locks in them, but some do. If your anti–theft bag doesn’t contain locks, then I would look into getting a fingerprint lock. This lock can be set to open with just your finger print and can be attached to the opening of your bag. This just ensures that your bag cannot be zipped open when your attention is elsewhere. If you are traveling and plan to be in an area that is going to be crowded or an area that is a popular tourist site, then you will want to buy this for an extra layer of protection.
