    We were pleased with the quality of the product. LOL, dd, wanted to know why the back pack was so heavy. Now when we travel, this will do away with a carry-on and our laptop computer bag, it will fit under an airline seat and we can then lock it to anything in our room we wish as well as locking it to a chair or palapa. The retratasafe cable extends 3 ft.

    I looked and it is a meshsafe b200 laptop backpack. Unfortunately it seems to be discontinued. BUT I did find the exact model online at REI

    This is the link for the lock


    There are two pairs of zippers. The main compartment as well as the smaller front one. If you go to the REI link and mouseover the zipper you will see that there is a hole in each zipper.

    We strung the retractable cable through each hole and then around the post of the palapa. The cable is
    2.4mm / 0.1in diameter high-tensile stainless steel wire wrapped in this plastic to make the surface smooth.

    No way anyone is going to get through that without someone on the beach seeing it.

    I purchased a 12l portable safe from pacsafe...its large enough to hold 2 nook's, watch, and full size digital camera and still had room. Best money spent. I had no worries leaving it. The only I did was change out the lock they gave with the bag, I went out and got a combination lock to replace the key lock, who wants to carry a key to the beach and then loose it. What I did was loop the cable around center post and thru the handles of a large beach bag and then shoved the bag inside and zipped it shut. I would love to see someone run by and grab the bag and pull his or her shoulder out....hehehe

    We liked the
    retractable cable lock because of the combination, no worry about carrying a key. Made it easy too and just used the same combination for that that we use for our TSA locks. No one gets confused that way

    I use a cable combination lock that I used to use when skiiing. Run it through the handle of beach bag and around palapa. Zip up beach bag zippers. Not exactly secure, but at least will take someone some time to dig through the bag to find almost nothing of value. We do not leave digital camera or ipods on beach unattended.

    Aruba is safe, but it pays to use common sense.

    Since we have now outgrown our vacation vault we are going to get the pacssafe backpack. Should suit our needs to hold the iPads and laptop and will use the vacation vault for the smaller stuff.

    Just to update you. We have a new product that will be available shortly that is specifically designed to accomodate Kindles, IPads and so on. It is larger than the existing VV. In addition it is both waterproof and designed to float if dropped overboard or swept away by a wave. A lot of thought and experience with the Vacation Vault has gone into the design. Pricing and availability are not yet finalized. Will keep you informed.

    We leave our stuff on the beach and have never had a problem. But we don'treally bring anything that has much value.
