Chicago, IL, United States, 2011/10/11 - User-activated, the personal security system built into the pack features flashing light and audible alarm to deter attackers and prevent theft - iSafeBags.com / OrangePublicRelations.com.
iSafe Bags announces the iSafe Waist Pack, the first and only waist pack with a built-in mobile personal security system to protect the wearer and provide security in threatening situations. The Waist Pack joins the existing line of iSafe products: the iSafe Backpack and iSafe Messenger Bag.
“iSafe bags are like having a personal body guard with you at all times,” said Edric Sizemore, inventor of iSafe Bags and President and Co-Founder of parent company, Inventive Concepts International. “Adding another bag to our lineup of safety bags, like the Waist Pack, gives users more flexibility to fit their mobile lifestyle needs while still providing the underlying purpose of security.”
In line with the iSafe Backpack and iSafe Messenger Bag, the new iSafe Waist Pack features a lightweight, battery-powered audible and visible alarm system that will, when activated by the user, signal distress and attract immediate attention in a dangerous or crisis situation. The alarm system is incorporated seamlessly into the waist pack, virtually undetectable until activated. The iSafe Waist Pack is a high-quality, convenient pack weighing less than one pound, and the built-in alarm system is shock and water-resistant for added durability.
The alarm is easily activated in a threatening situation – a quick tug on the inconspicuous activation cord sets off the audible alarm and flashing light to attract attention and startle any would-be attackers. The alarm can quickly be silenced and reset by replacing the pin. Also functioning as a an emergency rescue beacon in the event of an accident or other emergency, the alarm can run continuously for up to two hours on two 9-volt batteries. Alternatively, the alarm can be switched on and off in intervals to conserve battery power.
“Unlike typical handheld security devices, the iSafe Waist Pack and bags have the alarm built in, so there’s nothing more to carry,” remarked Sizemore. “It’s the perfect blend of safety and functionality.”
The one size-fits-all iSafe Waist Pack is available in black and blue/gray and comes with an adjustable belt strap for child and adult use. The iSafe Waist Pack retails for an MSRP of $39.99 at iSafeBags.com/.
