Bobby Anti Theft Backpack Review 

By  Enda

The Bobby branded anti-theft backpack is an expensive option for anyone wanting to buy a backpack that is secure, and helps keep thieves and robbers away from your precious items.

There is no access at the front of this backpack, and it also has hidden zippers and hidden pockets. It is these types of features that changes an ordinary backpack into one that is much more difficult to get into.

Pick pockets are everywhere and they gather where there are crowds of people. That makes tourists vulnerable and also makes bus stations, rail stations and tourist attractions ideal targets for those who prefer to steal your goods rather then make an honest living.

It is estimated that there are 400,000 pick pocket incidents every day throughout the world. My own guess is there are probably even more than that. Anti-theft backpacks are not fully theft proof, but they do put pickpockets off as they can't easily identify easy access or an easy opportunity.

Why Pick the Bobby Backpack?

There are a number of these style of backpacks on the UK market. This Bobby brand is just one of these, and with an average price of around £75, it is certainly not the cheapest option.

It is a good one though, and if you can afford it, then you will own a high quality anti-theft backpack, that is well designed, well made and looks great as you can see from the image to the right.
