PacSafe's new messenger bags combine the sleekness and function of traditional over-the-shoulder travel bags with James Bond-like security features. The antitheft MeshSafe M100 has strong but flexible stainless steel wire built into its front and bottom panels and shoulder strap, making them slash-proof. The adjustable shoulder strap also has a built-in combination lock with an attached wire that allows you to secure the zippers to fend off pickpockets or lock the bag to a fixed object to prevent it from being snatched. The M100 has a padded, removable laptop sleeve that fits 13-inch laptops (the MeshSafe M200 holds 15.4-inch ones) and handy pockets and pouches in the main and back compartments. It retails for $99.95 at REI .com or by calling REI at 800-426-4840.
