It's one of life's great pleasures: taking off, getting out of Dodge. Maybe just for a long weekend, maybe for a summer-long idyll. Either way, you're going to need that one dependable bag — the one that looks smart, can be tossed into the backseat of the car or under the plane seat in front of you. The one that has lots of room yet is not bulky; that has lots of pockets but is impeccably organized.

Unfortunately, travel also holds the threat of one of life's great terrors: identity theft. Many credit cards are manufactured with RIFD (radio frequency identification) technology. It's the thing that allows you to pay for stuff simply by waving or tapping your card on a reader. Mind-blowing and uber-convenient. But also potentially dangerous, because that same technology can be used by scammers to steal your information and identity if your card is not stored in a protective place. It's called RFID skimming; scammers remotely get ahold of your credit card number and/or other personal data and use it to wreak havoc on your finances and your life without the thief physically stealing your card. 

Why are we telling you this? Because we've found a bag that makes possible organized, stylized travel and theft protection. The Baggallini Small Everywhere Bag can be packed and ready to go go crosstown or cross-country in an instant. It's made entirely of sturdy nylon that can withstand years or wear and tear and has an adjustable crossbody strap for a secure but comfortable fit. Plus, plenty of pockets on the inside and outside ensure that you never have to fish around for your keys, wallet, ID, or whatever it is you're looking for.

But here's the really important part; The Baggallini is specially designed for safe and secure travel. It contains 10 RFID credit card slots that are designed to block remote attempts by scammers to access your personal information. That creep standing next to you at the rental car counter or the hotel check-in line will be sorely disappointed when his skimming scam meets the brick-wall protection of your new bag, perhaps even as he's been admiring it..  

Available in four neutral hues (Pacific, Charcoal, Midnight Blossom, Black) the Baggallini Small Everywhere Bag is made entirely of sturdy nylon that can withstand years or wear and tear and has an adjustable crossbody strap for a secure but comfortable fit. It features a top zipper closure, pockets on the inside and outside (five of them all together) and will ensure that you never have to fish around for your keys, wallet, phone, or whatever else you might want to locate in a hurry.

 Here's the best part: It's currently on sale at QVC for $48 (was $80) — cheaper than anywhere else on the web! And if you'd rather not shell out the entire amount at once, you can make four interest-free Easy Pays of $12. Plus, if you're a first-time shopper, use code NEW to score $15 off. 

So do yourself a favor: Snag one of these, strap it on, stay stylish...and stay safe!
