Travelling bags

A friend in the travel business shared this advice on travelling bags.

Do not place valuables inside luggage. As the pictures shows, the zip can still be opened easily with just a pen and can be covered back by running the zip back and forth.

Do consider investing in luggages with tamper-proof zippers, instead of saving money on cheap ones!

    Now this is new...
    No wonder sometimes things just disappears from my bag...

  2. mmm... this is interesting.
    Something new I learn today.

  3. use samsonite oyster, sure cannot open!!

  4. Z, really?

    Chen, new to me too when I first saw it. Crooks always find a way to beat the system, don't they?

    SF, yeah lah Samsonite is a trusted brand. It's a terrible feeling to be worrying about loss of belongings.

    I guess so...
    Or it was just my absent minded character at play...

  6. Z, maybe the loss was real. I've lost things that I didn't realise until I needed them and lo and behold, couldn't for the life of me find them. I believe I'm not the only one.

  7. yes, yes, esp those cheap zipper.

    Having said that some of the good brand with thick zipper, cannot be open like this.

    Samsonite for one.

  8. Thank goodness that at least there are still some reliable ones.
