No matter how long the journey or what destination your travel leads to, one’s safety, including the protection of personal valuables, is and must always be a primary concern.
Keeping in mind this aspiration and the growing demand for safer and fearless travels, globally recognized travel gear brand Pacsafe has finally opened its first flagship store in the Philippines. The boutique – the company’s first in the world – is located at the ground level of Glorietta 5 in Makati.
Roshiela Sun, COO of United Limsun, said Pacsafe is so thrilled and honored to open its first boutique in the Philippines which is the brand’s top performing retailer-location in the world. Currently, Limsun exclusively distributes Pacsafe products in 200 doors nationwide.
“We couldn’t be more proud in welcoming its flagship store here. To witness and become part of Pacsafe’s successful growth both as a company and as a premium brand is a huge honor and an incredible achievement for us,” Sun said.
“Now, with the growing economy, evolving modern lifestyles and projected tourism boom, we can say Pacsafe’s arrival is truly perfect; it came at the right place and in the right time. It has risen from being an aspirational luxury brand to an everyday travel gear essential,” Eros Enriquez, Pacsafe Philippines marketing manager, added.
The new boutique – with at least 10 more retail locations expected to open in three years – will carry the company’s full range of products (adventure backpacks, urban and leisure bags, women’s bags, photography bags, luggage and travel accessories such as straps, cables and locks).
As a way of giving back to the inspiration where its adventure began, Pacsafe has extended its company’s global marine turtle conservation advocacy by providing a kick-off fund donation of PhP235,000 to the Bantay Pawikan Conservation Center located in Morong, Bataan, through the Bataan Tourism Council. Present to accept the donations are Vicky Garcia and Isabel Garcia (Chairpersons of the Bataan Tourism Council). The aid, according to Pacsafe President and co-founder MagnusMcGlashan, is Pacsafe’s sincere contribution to help protect and propagate safe and healthy oceans, coastlines and other environments that support marine life, most especially endangered sea turtles worldwide.
“Besides embodying one’s new modern lifestyle pursuit and aspiration, Pacsafe is primarily a brand that strongly resonates among fun, nature-loving folks. Just like the adventurous and majestic turtle, you travel with your life, which is why guarding prized essentials from thieves and intruders at all times are paramount,” he said.
Built on the aspirations by Australian founders Rob Schlipper (CEO) and McGlashan, Pacsafe rose to become a name synonymous to smart and safe travel. As the pioneer of the travel security category since 1998, Pacsafe has successfully trotted all over the globe as the world’s most secure anti-theft travel gear. Being the only brand that focuses solely on travel security, Pacsafe has steadily moved up and gained solid industry leadership throughout the years, thanks to its trademark innovations like the eXomesh, RFIDsafe, and other award winning technologies that are the core strengths of its ingenious product engineering.
