iSafe Waist Pack Review

iSafe has a unique line of backpacks and bags that provides built in mobile personal security. How does it work? These functional bags come equipped with an alarm system to give extra protection in an emergency situation.

I really like the iSafe Waist Pack ($39.99) and I was really surprised with how powerful the alarm sounds when it is set off. In fact, it is the loudest personal alarm system with two 125 decibel sirens and a bright strobe light. We put this waist pack into use recently at a Monster Jam event that had over 20,000 people. I was more confident that this mobile personal security system would be helpful in the event that I needed to deter a theft or attack (thankfully, we didn’t need to put it to use). If the waist pack needed to be activated, I would simply lift the Velcro covered flap and pull the activation cord. Once the pin is disengaged the alarm will immediately sound and the system is activated.

My children like to carry things along with them when we are out exploring and especially when hiking together in the woods so I think the iSafe Waist Pack is a great idea from both a functional stand point as well as for their personal safety. The waist pack has ample storage space on the inside as well as a zippered area on the outside. If one of our children gets separated or lost while we are in the woods, they could activate the alarm helping us to find them quickly.

iSafe has a wide selection of school backpacks, laptop backpacks, laptop messenger bags and waist packs to choose from. You are invited to visit iSafe to purchase your favorite bag complete with a personal alarm system.
