Guide Review - Pacsafe Metrosafe 200 - Best Travel Purse Ever
It took experimentation to see where things fit best. My passport, credit cards and iPhone all fit into 2 padded pockets inside a large zippered organizer section, with a headphone port. My other "can't loose" items could be tucked into other parts of this zippered organizer, which is hidden behind the purse's front flap. I tucked almost everything else, from my digital camera to a small make-up kit, into the main zippered compartment. Tissues to lip balm, things I might need quickly, went into an outside zippered compartment. Side pockets hold a water bottle or umbrella.
Pacsafe, the maker, lists Metrosafe as a "well-organized urban travel bag," but I've carried it in locales from crowded streets in Rome to the African bush. After eight hours on a plane floor, it didn't show any dirt.
Pacsafe’s Metrosafe 200 Anti-theft Features
The anti-theft features are winners. The shoulder strap has a steel cable and the front panel and the bottom panel have eXomesh, so thieves racing by can't slice the strap or the purse open. A hook on the shoulder strap lets you wrap the strap around a secure fixture, such as the chair you're sitting on when dining in a streetside cafe patio. The zippers can be latched or hidden on the main compartment and front organizer pocket.
