I will be going travelling with a trekking top loading backpack, a berghaus one. I was wondering whether anyone would recommend the saklocks which enable you to lock the clips found on the pack. Obviously for planes I will be putting my rucksack in another bag and locking that but i just wanted a deterant whilst it was on ny back. Any recommendations? Thanks in advance

dont know if this is right or not but it was suggested to me to use cable ties for securing backpacks. Whilst they wont stop the professional thief (but then what will) they might act against the oportunist thief.

Be warned folks (particularly re locking your pack during a flight) that at customs in some countries if they want to look in your pack and it is locked they will break the locks without warning.

I used to always use a Pacsafe on mine pack but most airports won't accept your luggage until you take them off.
