I'll say this to you, I was in palermo, Sicily not a really long time ago, I was only there to carry some parts for work, the bonus was that I got a bit of time to have a walk about.
I was MEGA careful the whole day. and I stopped for a cold drink on a very hot day.
I thought that the bag was safe between my legs, never out of my sight. What was out of my sight as I was on the phone was the scooter that came across the front of me the pillion hanging over, who very cleanly and very surely picked up the bag and away.
I had 2 DSLRs (50D + 350D), 3 Lenses, 1 Flash gun, bunch of other accessories. more than £2.7k all in... all in a lowepro Fastpak250 - not a small or light bag in anyway.
I thought that I was insured through the work. I wasn't.
I'm very thankful for Direct Line's assistance in clearing everything through the house insurance, But I wouldn't want to do that way again. I wont travel again without the proper insurance.
