As the old adage goes, necessity is the mother of invention. Sitting on the rooftop of the Palace Hotel, Pacsafe co-founder Rob Schlipper, witnessed as furor erupted in Tiananmen Square. Forced to evacuate from China, Rob discovered all too late his belongings had been stolen from his backpack. This was just one of the classic experiences over many years of traveling that inspired Rob and his business (and travel) partner, Magnus McGlashan to develop eXomeshÂ® technology, the foundation for the Pacsafe product line today.
This year marks the tenth anniversary for Pacsafe, the leading manufacturer of innovative anti-theft products. Starting out with a single award winning product, the company has developed into a full line of travel security products including adventure, urban and leisure, women’s, computer bags, motorcycle gear and travel accessories. While the company has broadened their product scope over the past decade, what has not changed is their commitment to deliver the most innovative, travel security products in the marketplace, governed by the belief that â€œwhen your gear’s secure, you can do moreâ€.
In celebration of their anniversary, Pacsafe will be hosting cocktails at their booth (#17013) at Outdoor Retailer Show, on the Saturday, August 9th from 4:00 pm until 6:00pm. They will be debuting several new products at the show, including the CentroSafe business collection and an expanded adventure travel accessories collection featuring the VentureSafe, PouchSafe 150, StowSafe and CashSafe.
