Pack Lightly with Pacsafe Vibe 325 Econyl Anti-Theft Recycled Sling Pack

When it comes to the essentials, you don’t always need a backpack to tote your stuff around. It might make sense to have one bag that’s flexible enough to fit a little or a lot, but if you don’t like carrying a big pack when you only have a few items, consider sizing down.

I like using the Pacsafe Vibe 325 Econyl Anti-Theft Recycled Sling Pack in those circumstances.

Most importantly, the fabric is Econyl regenerated nylon, which is recycled nylon waste, like fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring, and industrial plastic from landfills and oceans all over the world. The material is recycled back to its original purity and then processed into yarn for this pack and other items.

Sling it over your shoulder, to wear on your back, or wear it up front so you can access things quickly. The strap is wire-reinforced, so someone can’t slash it, and the body has hidden stainless steel wire mesh for the same reason. To keep your identity safe, there’s a pocket with RFID-blocking material, so your credit cards and passport don’t get scanned by strangers.

There are more internal pockets to help keep your gear organized, as well as an internal attachment point for wallets and keys. The pack fits a 10-inch tablet in a padded sleeve, for extra protection.

On the strap, there’s a detachable buckle that lets you secure the bag to a fixed object, so it doesn’t walk away without you. And there’s a lockdown point for zippers and cables with interlocking zip pullers.

The sling pack comes packed with ways to protect your gear. Now you just have to remember not to leave it behind.

The Vibe 325 Econyl Anti-Theft Recycled Sling Pack comes in bedrock and deep ocean colors, and lists for 884,95 on the Pacsafe site.
