Is using a backpack in Europe safe?

Jump to last reply

So I'm going to Europe for the first time with my mom and I was wondering if bringing a backpack is a good or bad idea. I've heard a lot of stories about pickpocketing and we've already purchased a money bag/belt.

I would prefer to bring a backpack because you can carry more and it would make it easier to walk around as it wouldn't strain my shoulder so much if I were to bring a shoulder bag.

The backpack of my choice would be a Coach backpack with a zipper. Would wearing brand name make me a more likelier target for pickpocketing?
