Pacsafe is a brand of travel equipment with emphasis on anti-theft features. Outpac Designs Limited, makers of Pacsafe, was established in 1998 in Hong Kong by two Australians. Their inspiration behind the original Pacsafe product and travel security products came while travelling in South America, where they saw chicken wire put around bags to protect it against theft. Shortly afterwards, they created the slashproof wire cage system Exomesh, the Pacsafe 85L, big enough to enclose an 85-litre backpack, later adding other sizes.
In 2005, Pacsafe locks were made compatible with the Travel Sentry standard (TSA) used by many international airport security authorities. Today, Pacsafe’s range includes adventure backpacks, urban and leisure bags, photography bags, as well as luggage and travel accessories that all incorporate anti-theft features.
