    I’ve been waiting for this post!!! Great tips Tracy and some great items for my list for Santa ?. Great to know they’ve been tested and recommended too!!

  2. Rachel says:

    Love these recommendations, I’m always on the lookout for a good travelling bag so thanks for recommending 2 great options! I’ve always been a bit put off by the price of Pacsafe but if they really do work then I reckon it’s worth it.

    And yes to all the sanitisers – we managed to avoid getting travellers tummy by sanitising everything in sight at regular intervals. Sounds OTT but it really helped!

    Great ideas! It is really true you have to be careful…. Funny enough only place I have been pickpocekted was in Europe!

    Oh and I totally need that shirt at the end! “Jetlag made me do it!” haha

    PacSafe Backpack, you say? Rob has a sort of slingpack from them he loves, but we haven’t seen a backpack. Of course, we weren’t looking for a new bag until recently, so thanks for the heads up. Love the scarf camera strap, too! Great ideas.

  5. James says:

    There are some very useful items here. The secure backpack looks perfect – I need a new backpack for my upcoming trip and this would be perfect. The cold towel for Thailand and other hot countries is also an invaluable item. As are the waterproof bags, I’d use one for my phone and camera!

  6. Garth says:

    Good selection of items Tracy, We’ve got the waterproof bags! I would also add – if you’ve got a DSLR – buy an unbranded camera strap that has a metal inner core to it, it means people can’t slash your strap and grab your camera… which is common in some SE Asia countries.

      Thanks Garth – great tip too! I used the scarf with my DSLR as I found the other one hurt my neck but I will keep that in mind next time we are in SE Asia!

  7. Alex says:

    Well you have totally enlightened me intot the world of pacsafe and snap towels – I had no idea these wonderful inventions were out there! And, I agree – I have been thinking about a scarf/camera strap recently, cameras can be such a pain in the neck, literally. I like your chevron one here too! Nice list and thanks for doing the hard work research part!
