15 Best Anti-Theft Travel Bags for Women To Wear on Vacation

Us Weekly has affiliate partnerships so we may receive compensation for some links to products and services.

The last thing anyone wants to deal with on a vacation getaway is theft, which is unfortunately a common occurrence in many popular travel destinations. That's why you need the right bag to lessen your odds of having a prized possession taken from you!

Bags that work for anti-theft purposes have a few common features. Let's start with the general design of the accessory, which should enable you to keep your items as close to you as possible. Also, look for purses that don't zip from the back to minimize any sneaky pickpocketing while you're not paying attention. And if you want even further protection, invest in bags with RFID blocking, which can help prevent you from being electronically stripped of your ID or credit card info. If you haven't secured your travel bag yet, you don't have to look far — because we've already found all of the best styles ready for you to shop below. Happy traveling (and don't forget your passport)!
