    Its all valuable if its missing. My wife always insists on checking luggage so I often put things like, shoes, chargers, toiletries, some clothes etc. in there. If I were to get to my destination only to find a £150 ($200) shoes missing I'd be a bit miffed. Equally, I'm not sure my wife would feel too chuffed at having her smalls rifled. To know its quicker to break in to a bag than to unlock it is a bit worrying.

    all the more reason for carry on luggage!!

    i wonder if you can do the same thing to the splashproof zippers that are being used by tom bihn??
    Onebag.com describes how that can be done, but I had no idea is was that easy. Apparently it works with all 'coil' type zip, which, I believe, the TB splash proof ones are. As you say, don't check your luggage. Also, according to OneBag, a recent wheeze has been for thieves to steal from your bag then remove/replace the airport label so that it is misdirected. This delays the discovery of the theft and makes it more difficult to work out where the theft took place.
