Security products

Passport pouches, money belts, personal alarms, and tamperproof zipper closures are just a few of the security items at Magellan's Travel Supplies.

This U.S.-based company makes day packs, courier bags, and other products that incorporate a protective layer of steel mesh (see inset photo). You can also buy the original PacSafe product, a flexible and lockable cage of steel mesh that can be used to protect an existing backpack. Other products include a portable "TravelSafe," slashproof shoulder straps, purses, neck pouches, and a photo-gear insert for PacSafe's secure duffel bag.
