Summary of the Pacsafe Retractasafe 100 3-Dial Retractable Cable Lock

As I have mentioned above, we have a number of Pacsafe items we use for travel and we swear by them.  The Retractasafe Cable Lock is no exception. 

We always carry a couple on us and we never leave our room without securing our locked bags to a piece of furniture, or securing our bags together.  We also carry one of these to the beach with us and secure our personal belongings in a day pack to a table, chair or tree when we go to have a swim, or go out snorkelling.

Whilst it may not stop an adept thief from stealing our belongings, we believe it is a deterrent for most, and this gives us peace of mind.

By Peta Wenzel

We are Peta (Australian) and Jonas (Swedish/Australian), a couple in our mid 40’s / early 50’s who have been travelling the world fulltime since January 2018. We met and lived on the Gold Coast, Australia and spent many evenings researching and watching YouTube vlogs about travel and dreaming of the day we would retire and be able to enjoy a lot more travel ourselves. Over the years, a number of events happened to family and friends and an opportunity arose which made us decide to not wait but to instead take a “Gap Year”. We are now in our 3rd year of travel and still hunger for new adventures and embrace the uncertainty that comes with full-time travel. If you want to know more about who we are, why we choose this lifestyle and how we do it, please follow our adventures and see how you can do it too.
