If you’ve been a victim of someone opening your luggage in transit, in your hotel, or elsewhere, you’ll appreciate the extra security features of the PacSafe TourSafe Luggage. They’ve introduced a puncture resistant ToughZip zipper that can’t be penetrated with such common sharp objects as a ball point pen.


Other anti-theft features include lockable zipper pulls to prevent sneaky hands forcing their way in, and PacSafe’s traditional Xomesh® protection deterring gear from coming out if your bag is ripped on your adventure or while in transit. This Xomesh is a traditional wire lacing PacSafe places in almost all of their handbags, backpacks, and purses. Proven highly effective for years by arming bags with a wire laced mesh through the body of a bag underneath the exterior fabric. This same anti-theft technology is integrated into the new TourSafe series. Their brand new TOURSAFE EXP also sports a super-secure zipper lock and a wire cord which will help you secure your bag to anything in the room. This is the most secure luggage yet!!!

With the paint job very much resembling that of a B2 Stealth Bomber and/or an exotic sports car, the RIMOWA's Topas Stealth cases look like they mean business. Made of the same, practically bomb-proof, aluminum as the original Topas collection, the matte black gives the Stealth pieces a certain contrasting edge.
