Pacsafe Opens Flagship Store in the Philippines!

Pacsafe, a reliable brand providing stylish and secure anti-theft bags and accessories has finally opened its flagship store and it’s right here in the Philippines! Located at the ground floor of Glorietta 5 in Makati city, it carries a wide range of products designed to protect travelers' valuables from theft - from luggage, carry-ons and accessories (camera straps, TSA-approved locks, steel wire mesh, RFID blocking wallets and more!).

Picture below shows their Adventure Collection for travelers who are always on the move (ehem!)

Note :Some of the photos were taken with permission from staff when I attended the store launch last July 20, 2016.

My pick : As someone who loves to travel light and go for quick day hikes, I’d choose the Venturesafe X22 or the X30. These are the green and blue backpacks in the photo below.  It has the features which I find fitting for an adventure such as a built-in raincover, slashguards and more. (Full specs are listed on the Pacsafe site. Click here. Venturesafe X22 retails at 6,990 Pesos)

Below is a shot of Pacsafe’s Urban Collection. These are bags designed for everyday use of city dwellers like shoulder bags and sling bags.

For jetsetting travelers who prefer to bring luggages, the Leisure Collection’s for you!

Here are some of the cool safety features of all Pacsafe bags listed on their website:
- lightweight eXomesh slashguards are concealed in the vulnerable areas of the bag. Simply put, some areas of the bag are protected from slashing, offering extra protection from thieves who use the knife as their ammo for stealing.

- RFIDsafe™ blocking pockets and material. The RFID microchip in most passports and credit cards contain personal information that can be stolen and used against you with a device called an RFID reader. Pacsafe bags has pockets that are RFID safe. It blocks all transmissions between 10MHZ-3GHZ which covers the radio frequency used in most e-passports and credit cards.

- Carrysafe slahsguard strap – the bag straps contain a lightweight stainless steel wire 
that prevents snatchers from detaching it from your bag and running off with your belongings

- Puncture resistant ToughZip. Ever seen that video of a luggage that can easily be opened using a ballpoint pen? With Pacsafe, you don’t have to worry about your stuff being pulled out from your bag or have wanted items put in just as easily.

With its stylish and functional design, Pacsafe bags come at a steeper price than regular bags, averaging from 3000-9,000 Pesos for the adventure & urban collection depending on the model – a reasonable amount for the security and priceless peace of mind it provides. You can check out prices by visiting Pacsafe in Glorietta or online at Lazada.

Pacsafe, an advocate of sea turtle conservation
On the brand’s logo, you’ll notice an image of a sea turtle. For Pacsafe, these endangered marine animals represent the bold nature of a global traveler. Sea turtles spent most of their times at sea but travel miles to nest on specific beaches.  According to this post from the Broward County Sea Turtle Conservation Program site, turtles lay their eggs within 5 to 35 miles where they were born or nested in the past.   What an adventure that is! As part of Pacsafe’s commitment to preserving the sea turtles, they launched a Pacsafe Turtle Fund in 2014 which grants funding to sea turtle conservation projects.

As they launched their flagship store, Pacsafe provided a grant to Bataan Peninsula Tourism Council Foundation Inc to rehabilitate the Pawikan Conservation Center in Brgy. Nagbalayong in Morong, Bataan.

Travel Tip : A great time to visit the Pawikan Conservation Center  is during the Pawikan Festival, held every last week of November, the highlight of which is the release of the sea turtle hatchlings back into the sea.
