eXomesh Locking System
Our eXomesh patented anti-theft technology is found in most of our smart products. It’s a strong, lightweight, flexible, high-tensile, stainless steel slashproof wire mesh which is used in our smart travel gear as:
- eXomesh cage system: Locks closed and locks to a secure fixture with a heavy duty locking device. The eXomesh is either externally fitted to bags or laminated between fabric to form a portable safe.
- eXomesh slashguards: our stainless steel wire mesh is built discreetly into areas targeted by bag slashers, like the bottom and side panels.
Outpac Designs Limited, makers of Pacsafe was established in 1998 by 2 Aussie friends who had sailed most of the world’s oceans and clocked up visits to more than 80 countries around the world. Their own experiences and those of other travelers convinced them of the need for no-nonsense travel security and from that their eXomesh anti-theft technology was born and formed the first-ever.
Today, Pacsafe can be found in over 33 countries worldwide and the product range includes adventure backpacks, leisure bags, urban bags, women’s bags, camera bags as well as luggage and travel accessories.

The PacSafe Protector might prevent someone walking away with your carry-on or backpack in a public place. But I wouldn't trust it to "lock and leave". As other reviewers have noted, the holes in the mesh are quite large. Large enough to place your hand through. Large enough that someone can cut through your bag. A determined thief could easily cut through adjacent holes in the mesh. That would allow them to rummage around inside your bag and retrieve anything small enough to fit through the mesh.
Regarding the "lock and leave" idea, search YouTube for "PacSafe Security Bag Weakness" and you see how difficult it is to break open the included padlock. And while you can buy a much better padlock for $10-$20, I don't think it's worth the money or extra effort given its other weaknesses.
To advertise that this mesh will protect a 55 liter backpack is not only optimistic but dishonest. 55L might apply if you placed a contractor bag inside and poured 55 liters of water into it. But who carries their stuff in a contractor bag? I've included some photos of how well the Pacsafe 55L DOES NOT protect a 50 liter Jansport Katahdin pack that was approximately 2/3 full.
The first photo is of my attempt to place the mesh over the top of the backpack and close it around the bottom. Nope. Ain't gonna happen.
The next photo shows the pack from the side. You might notice that it's no where near "full". The last two photos show the mesh placed over the backpack from back-to-front (the method shown in the PacSafe videos). Even from back-to-front (front being where the pack meets your back), it's impossible to completely close the mesh without "folding" the bag (which would be impossible if it were "full"). You are then left with an opening large enough for someone to gut the bag and remove all of its contents.
And although not a weakness, if you actually wear your backpack this product might be seen to be quite heavy. To me, adding an extra 1 lb 2 oz to my otherwise 20 lb pack is not an attractive idea.
I believe this should suffice knowing its limitations. There is one caveat that I didn't see mentioned is the two areas where the loops aren't connected to the main wire where the waist straps of hiking bags are supposed to go through. I've discovered that if they aren't used, it can create huge holes, like 8 inches or more, which is unacceptable for me. Using an extra lock to cinch that part seems to do the trick. Also not mentioned was the size. It's advertised as 120L but packaging says 75-120L, however, pictured is my 35L 5.11 Rush 24 and it cinches down all the way to about the same size as the other openings.
The diagram is a little confusing but I could figure it out. It comes with a carry bag that folds in half and is held by velcro, 3 keys, and instructions that fit in the bag.
Cinch the bag down as tightly as you can. If you leave it loose, it is easy to work the bag around and empty the bag of small items. I didn't do this and during the attempt, the thieves didn't get the back but they did manage to steel a knife and a couple of other small items. The pacsafe is easier to defeat if the mesh is stretched to full extension, so it works better with bags that don't approach the 55L size.
Lock the bag close to whatever it is you are using to secure it. If you can, use a separate cable for securing the bag to an external object. The second time someone tried to take the bag, they got it partially free but the second cable kept them from taking it, so they had to decide whether to stay in the truck and cut through two cables or the netting. The cables and netting outlasted their tools and they gave up. So I have to replace my pacsafe but I didn't lose my gear.
Last lesson: lock your car or truck! Both attempts were possible because I wasn't careful to be sure the doors and windows of my truck were locked.

Expensive for what it is, but not so expensive that I could be bothered making something similar myself!
I can fit crash helmet, boots, jacket, jeans and gloves into a bag and put it inside my PacSafe. Sorted. A must have item/
