Got trust issues? With people stealing your stuff when you’re out and about, that is? I think we all do, to varying degrees. To assuage this tendency and actually keep our valuables safer, TrustBag might be just the product. While in appearance it looks to the casual observer to be a simple drawstring gym bag (albeit with a bit more styling than average), it is packed (see what I did there) with security features. For starters, the outer bag material is handwoven from a soft-to-the-touch, high-molecular weight polyethylene (HMWPE) and other state-of-the-art fibers which resists cuts, rips and abrasions. The inner bag, made from urethane-coated 200 denier nylon fabric, is water resistant as well as RFID-blocking for theft protection for your credit cards or passport. The carry handle/closure is a flexible, cut, tear and rip-proof wired belt (with 49 strings of stainless steel embedded in it) with a tensile strength of 1000 pounds and two heavy-duty locks are available to secure it: the German ABUS and the American Master Lock. The four shoulder straps are made from mountain climbing-grade cords, also with a tensile strength of 1000 pounds. There’s also a snap-hook for keys inside! But all this comes with a price tag: regularly $189, the TrustBag is currently priced at $149. Visit TrustBag.com for more info and to order.
