Travelon, as you can guess from the name, makes great bags for traveling – around town or around the world. This particular wallet and bag combination is perfect for protecting your valuables and your personal data as you go about your daily travels. The Travelon Anti-Theft Convertible Hobo with RFID Blocking Wallet are made of 100% polyester. The bag has a slash-resistant bottom panel, straps, and exterior zip pockets, and the strap has a carabiner that is used to attach the bag to a chair so no one can walk away with it while you’re having a meal. The strap is adjustable, so you can even wear it cross-body, which prevents someone from snatching it off your shoulder as they walk by you. The bag also has a locking hook to keep the main compartment’s zipper closed so someone can’t just reach in and grab the contents. There’s a front zipper compartment with RFID shielding in the interior pockets to protect your passport and your phone from being scanned without your knowledge. The Hobo bag also comes with an RFID-shielded wallet with eight card slots, two bill pockets, ID window, and one zip pocket to keep your other RFID-chipped cards from being scanned. The bag measures 14″wide x 10.5″ tall x 3.5″ thick with a 17″ to 30″ strap drop; it weighs 13 ounces. The wallet is 7.5″ wide x 4″ tall x 0.5″ thick. The set comes in black, steel, navy, golden brown, olive, or orchid. It’s available at QVC‘s Today’s Special Value pricing of $34.92 until midnight ET today (August 29, 2014).
