An anti-theft backpack is a bag with security features that prevent it from being stolen or broken into while traveling.
The goal of an anti-theft backpack is to keep your possessions safe while traveling. You don’t necessarily need a bag with tons of “safety” features that makes you stick out as a tourist, but you need a thoughtfully-designed backpack whether you’re on vacation, doing business travel, or for everyday use. A good anti-theft backpack will keep your credit cards, passport, phone, laptop, and other essentials from getting stolen.
The ideal solution involves traveling with a backpack with lockable zippers, hidden compartments, and discreet styling that makes you a less obvious target. Most of all, you should avoid any backpack that screams “tourist” to potential pickpockets.
Tortuga Travel Backpacks deliver on each of these points. Our superior carry on backpacks feature locking zippers. With a TSA-approved lock on your bag, thieves will move on to the next target. Our carry on backpacks have hidden pockets for you to store valuables. Our backpacks—including our travel backpacks—don’t just look great, but are also designed to remain low-profile and reduce the chances that you’ll be targeted by thieves.
Many reviewers have called out the outstanding security offered by the Tortuga Travel Backpack. Gearhacker called it the “best one-bag travel backpack,” thanks in part to its outstanding security rating when compared to every other backpack they tested. TravelFreak declares our carry on bag “arguably one of the best backpacks” thanks to its size and stealth.

Best anti-theft Backpacks by Tortuga
The Tortuga Travel Backpack boasts many anti-theft features that keep your electronics and valuables secure so you can focus on enjoying your travels. All of our backpacks are carry-on-sized, organized, comfortable, and durable. But they’re also full of anti-theft features. Let’s review Tortuga’s features:
Imagine getting to the airport baggage claim after your luggage does. It happens more often than any of us want it to.
Because Tortuga only makes carry-on backpacks, you don’t need to worry about your luggage getting stolen from the baggage claim.
Staying in possession of your luggage through travel is key.
You’ll find different compartment types in your bag. You don’t need to shove everything down into one sloppy main compartment like you would in a hiking backpack.
Hidden compartments and pockets help you hide valuables like credit cards, headphones, an iPad, or whatever else you might need to protect.
Side pockets feature theft-resistant zippers, so your stuff will be safe inside and out. You can put your water bottle in pockets designed for easy access, so it won’t be hidden away in the main compartment.
All Tortuga bags are comfortable with padded shoulder straps. Our bags are lightweight, particularly compared to rolling luggage. When you’re carrying a travel backpack, the weight of your bag is transferred to your hip belt to save your shoulders and back.
Tortuga uses best-in-class materials and hardware that are designed to last a lifetime. We never skimp on quality.
If anything goes wrong with our craftsmanship, we offer our Worldwide Warranty. You’re covered, and we’ll make it right for you.
Lockable and hidden zippers are among the best anti-theft backpack features available. Tortuga’s zippers are lockable with TSA-approved locks for security. Our zipper tape is also water-resistant, so your stuff is protected from the elements. Our zippers blend in with our waterproof and water-resistant fabrics, so thieves have a hard time finding them in the first place.
The Tortuga Travel Backpack’s discreet styling means that you won’t stand out like a tourist. Designed like a commuter backpack rather than a hiking pack, it blends in to diminish your likelihood of being targeted by thieves. With a Tortuga, you’ll look good and travel smart.
The integrated laptop compartment flat against your back can prevent the theft of your laptop while keeping it safe in an impact-resistant sleeve. When you carry a Tortuga, you carry your most valuable possession where it’s the hardest to steal.
The Travel Backpack’sdurable waterproof sailcloth exterior won’t rip or tear, without the extra weight added by other slash-proof materials that require metal wiring that is expensive, heavy, and unnecessary.
You don’t need an anti-theft travel backpack that’s built like a tank and weighs a ton. The best anti-theft backpacks are built thoughtfully by expert travelers, like us at Tortuga.
The Travel Backpack’s sailcloth material is also waterproof. While the backpack doesn’t have a rain cover, there is no need for one: it’s already a water-resistant backpack. Your stuff will stay dry on the road.
As a traveler, you don’t need a specialized waterproof backpack. Our backpacks made with water-repellent fabrics will do the job of keeping your stuff drive without costing you a fortune.
Tortuga is a small business, and we’re only as good as our reputation. We need to stand behind every product we make. That’s why we offer our Worldwide Warranty.
As a traveler, you know that things can go wrong on the road. We’ve got you covered no matter where you are.
At Tortuga, we stand by our products 100%. If your backpack fails due to a defect, you can count on us to repair it, replace it, or refund your money (at our discretion).
You can forget about unexpected costs at checkout because Tortuga provides free shipping on all orders over $49.
You never want to travel with a backpack that doesn’t feel great every step of the way.
To ensure that you’re picking the right bag, we offer a Home Try-On Program so you can test your backpack before you commit to a purchase. Order your bag, do a test pack, and, if it doesn’t meet your needs for any reason, send it back within 30 days. We’ll pay for the return shipping and provide a 100% refund.
When you buy from Tortuga, you support the Tortuga Study Abroad Scholarship which helps students achieve their dreams of exploring the world.
