Like a safe with straps, the Pacsafe VentureSafe 65 has some super nifty features to thwart would-be thieves. While it didn't win any official awards, this pack is a top scoring contender with excellent features. It was the most expensive pack in the review, but it's also the one with the most unique security features and overall design. The main compartment accommodates two stacks of clothes with ease, but the pack leaves something to be desired in terms of accessibility for small items as it lacks small external pockets.
The Pacsafe VentureSafe 65 fell below the Editors' Choice award winning Osprey Farpoint 55 primarily because it was less durable and weighed a full pound more. The VentureSafe's excellent easy-to-pack main compartment wasn't as functional in the outdoors as the Eagle Creek Deviate 60, which won a Top Pick for Outdoor Versatility for its ability to thrive everywhere from peaks to airplanes. Overall, we loved the VentureSafe and think that it is a terrific pick for traveling in sketchy parts of the globe where security is valued above all else.
