I am getting ready for a trip to Europe, and the word on the street for Italy is pickpocketing, camera strap slashing, etc. it is too bad a small percentage of people cause this perception of Italy. i want to be relaxed shooting Italy, so I am looking for a recommendation for a secure camera strap. Pacsafe looks to be good,but i am open for suggestions.

Hello Jleagueoa,

I don't think there is any real safe way of keeping your gear protected from the pickpockets as a backup make sure you insure your camera gear before going overseas.

I hope you have a brilliant time over there.

Regards,
Simon

Thank you Goldmember. I have an appointment with my insurance agent as well just in case.

Cheers!

Thats alright Chris, Another tip try not to carry your equipment around in a camera bag choose a backpack that way it will not be such a target on your back, Plus line the bottom of the bag with some plywood that way if they cut the bottom of your bag nothing falls out and its strong enough to not get cut by a knife.

I hope this helps.

Regards,
Simon

Good idea. I have a LowePro Sport 15L that zips from the inside, so the access is next to my back, but the plywood would be good as the underneath is still vulnerable.
