No Net Loss

Keep your bag by keeping it in a safe bag.
  [vote for,

This compact product is a net bag made of nylon and Kevlar that comes in several sizes and can be closed and locked to objects. If you are getting up to dance or training at the gym, place your handbag / gym bag in the safe bag, pull the draw strap and, after encircling part of a piece of furniture or other large item, lock it. The combination lock is later opened by use of its small number pad.

The safe bag is not meant to deter determined thieves, but the casual crook would be discouraged. It could even be locked to the waist when negotiating purse-snatching terrain.

This is the backpack lock to which I referred in my comment. [EvilHomer, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]

       The device as proposed (in particular the locking feature) lends itself to being abused for the purposes of bondage and other deviant behavior.

As such, I approve. (+)

       Oh, that'll be the wheeled version with the time lock vault.

       As when locking a bicycle, some degree of topological common sense is required.

       Comes back from dancing, finds 5 identical bags locked to same bench... tries code on all five ... is half-drunk and therefore not sure whether it's the wrong code or the wrong bag... gives up and carries the whole thing home

       Well, I own such a thing, although it is the size of a large backpack and constructed of steel wire instead of nylon and kevlar. I suppose that this proposal is that we make them smaller and lighter. I'd add that the key issue is that it be easily collapsible and foldable. The one I have is a pain to fold up and as such, usually ends up spronging (not a verb, but you get the picture) all over the place.   

       Here's another possibility. Just integrate the kevlar/nylon/whatever mesh into the fabric of the backpack or purse, and add a tether and lock.

       I had no idea that this was baked in any shape or form. Maybe a line of upscale purses would sell with these built-in security functions.
