I don't like putting stuff in my jeans pockets. And I don't like hanging keys and whatnot on the belt loop of my pants, something that a lot of people tend to do - I don't want those things jingling when I walk!
That is the reason why I used to use cargo pants and shorts and belt bags on a daily basis.
Much to the wife's disappointment...
But there are a couple of things I really, really like:
Great design and the color orange!
That's why when I saw the Pacsafe VentureSafe 150 GII in orange, I immediately got it!
Color orange aside, this is a low-profile bag. It's a cross-type body bag, and it's big enough to handle most of the things I could've put in my cargo pant's pockets but small enough to be really manageable even in tight spaces. I can put inside a battery pack, a couple of lightning cables, a point and shoot camera, two Olloclip lenses (wide+fisheye and wide+telephoto), my wallet, an iPhone 5s and an iPhone 6s+. Those are actually a lot! (I have now replaced my iPhone 5s with the newer iPhone 7.)
Imagine putting all of those in your jeans pockets (or even a pair of cargo pants). If you ever attempted it, you better make sure that you have a sturdy belt. Because, otherwise, one wrong move and you will be flashing people with your, ahem, undies...
There is a pocket inside that is supposed to protect your cards from card snoopers, an RFID-safe pocket, but, if you want to protect your cards and passport, they should not be in a wallet because the compartment is very small. Pacsafe could have made this bigger...
And speaking of tight spaces, Pacsafe prides itself by being, well, safe. There is a wire mesh running around the bag underneath the outer cloth of the bag and this will prevent people from slashing your bag and getting your valuables contained in it. There is also a couple of thick wires in the strap so people would need actual wire cutters to pry the bag from your body. And lastly, there are zipper locks that will take some effort to remove, so snatchers won't be able to easily open the zipper of your bag when you're not looking.
All-in-all, these are great theft deterrents when you are in a crowded place.
With all the safety features, great design and beautiful color, the Pacsafe VentureSafe 150 GII is Highly Recommended!
