Hi all,

I'm going travelling round Europe this summer and I need some advice on combination locks. What is the best one to use coz I'm gonna be leaving it in the train racking and I want to be sure it's going to be hard to get into if someone does decide to nick it LOL!

This one looks good, anyone had any experience of it? http://www.nothingbutpadlocks.com/index.php/products/view/46

Thanks

Personally I would go with a key lock. I had a bad experience with a combination lock I bought at an airport stand once. It just stopped working.

If someone is going to break in they are, a small key pad lock will over most.

never seen the point in padlocks for backpacks, i saw people who used them in South America. If people want to get into you're pack they will, most likely by using a knife and just slitting it open.
