I am sharing this story because there is always a lively debate here on the boards about pickpockets, how to best protect your valuables, etc.
We just returned from a trip to Canada. We were standing in line for a restaurant to have breakfast. The only reason I noticed this in the first place was because the line was long, and I was trying to stay awake until I could be seated and have some coffee.
The woman in line in front of us had a PacSafe bag with a very visible logo on it. I started studying her bag and realized that it was unzipped.
I don't think she was pickpocketed while standing in line for breakfast at a hotel in Canada. I think she forgot to zip the bag. Suggestion - zip the bag if you want to take advantage of its anti-theft features.
