The Kensington SecureTrek range comprises a selection of secure travel bags designed for students, commuters and businesses. The leading provider of mobile device and PC locks for more than 30 years, the SecureTrek range includes a 15" Laptop Backpack, 15" Laptop Carrying Case, 17" Laptop Overnight Backpack, and 17" Laptop Overnight Roller. Our recent survey found that while most travelers keep up to $2,500 worth of valuables in their travel or commute bags, 75 percent do not secure their bags en route. Unsurprisingly, 35 percent of respondents said they had experienced bag theft while on a trip. In this post we look at how a SecureTrek laptop bag can provide peace of mind at airports.
Traveling through Airports
We all know that traveling through airports can be a challenge. Not only is it usually crowded, but you might have to wait in a long line at check-in, then navigate the security checkpoint, then get on a tram to a far-away gate, and then wait in the gate area for your flight to start boarding. Add it all up, and there are a lot of distractions along that way, from showing your ID/passport to keeping track of your boarding pass … and you haven’t even gotten on the plane yet.
In a recent Kensington survey of frequent business travelers, “Airport” ranked as the #1 location where respondents felt most vulnerable to bag theft while traveling. A lot of that has to do with being distracted while you’re on your phone or trying to get work done on your laptop. And what if you’re suffering through a long layover and want to try and take a nap? It’s no fun trying to sleep with one eye open trying to guard your bag.
There’s got to be a better way, right?
Well, thanks to the new SecureTrek Lockable Laptops Bags from Kensington, there is a better way. With a bag like the SecureTrek 17” Laptop Overnight Roller, you can feel at ease knowing your bag isn’t going anywhere without you, nor is anyone getting in it. With zipper pulls that lock inside the SecureTrek Lock Base and the ability to add a Kensington Portable Lock that can loop around an armrest or seat in the gate area, your devices and valuables are far safer from thieves.
