This summer (Two weeks from now actually) I am going on a trip to Portland and San Fransisco. I am packing quite a bit of expensive gadgets like my Netbook, laptop, IPad 2 and blackberry. My question is what would be a good bag or charring case that would be secure enough that no one (Short of a very skilled pro) could get in? Mostly concerned about airports and hotels. Any one have experience with this sort of thing?

You can fit a laptop and probably the netbook in it as well the blackberry, but the ipad might not fit with the other two. Plenty of room inside and it also has two combination locks you can set your own code to.

That is a good idea, it can be locked and chained to your ankle.

That looks great and can't argue with the price either LOL. Thanks for the suggestion.

A company called PacSafe makes a line of products for exactly that scenario. They're designed to deter casual theft. However, I own one of their laptop messenger bags and I have to say, while the idea is good, and the security seems reasonable... it was really a rather poor messenger bag for daily use. After about a year it started coming apart. Also, the lock that it comes with might be sufficient as a theft deterrent, but not theft prevention. I found that with a screw driver and my bare hands I was able to force it open.
