Today’s gear suggestion and review comes from Matador community member, ophelia101

While in Genoa a couple years ago, we had an evening flight to catch. We left our luggage at the hotel and spent the day sightseeing only to find our luggage stolen upon return.

Trying to file a police report when you speak almost no Italian is not fun!

For less than 20 bucks, the ease of mind the Doberman Bag Protector Alert gives you is priceless. Basically, it’s like a car alarm for your bags.

You place your bag down and set the alarm. If the bag is moved, it sets off a 100 decibel alarm – sure to put off any would-be thieves!.

An added bonus is that it comes with a special pull-pin feature that doubles as a panic button.

Perfect, if you’re out wondering around some dodgy streets at night.
