It's gotten chilly here in the Northeast, which ultimately gets me daydreaming about a day at the beach. To me, there's nothing better than spending a day on the sand and swimming in the salty blue. But if you're like me, the pockets of your swimsuit are often full of the essentials: Cash, ID, keys, perhaps a cell phone—though there's no way I'm taking a call. So what's a beachgoer to do with all that stuff when it's time to take a dip? I don't know about you, but bobbing around with my back towards the horizon and my eyes focused on a towel-covered pile is not my idea of a good time.
That's why I love the TravelSafe 100 from Pacsafe, a manufacturer of innovative, anti-theft travel gear. The lightweight portable safe can be secured to just about anything, such as your chaise lounge—plus, it's lined with stainless steel cables making it slash proof, snatch proof, and tamper proof. It retails for $40 at pacsafe.com, a small price to pay for beachy peace of mind.
