No, Boulevardian bag does not differentiate from typical handbag looks as no safety apparatus or devices are visible.
Is there risk that the alarm unit activates accidentally?
Yes. Hermine & Gibson is not liable for any personal injuries incurred to any individual in any type of situation. The connecting harness is designed to pull out the alarm sprint caused by a sudden jerking or snatching of the Boulevardian bag and its carrying strap. The alarm mounting harness and its devices are designed to withstand a calculating amount of resistance. Its recommended not to overload the Boulevardian bag in so much that it can result in unnecessary alarm activation. As a backup there is also a string attached to the alarm. If hanging out of the bag the alarm can be activated manually.
What makes Boulevardian bag more safe than traditional handbags?
Hermine & Gibson’s handbags are constructed with an encompassing security device, which in its own creates a hinder for perpetrators. One security hinder works in conjunction with the other, thus creating compounded hinders for perpetrator. The Boulevardian bag’s carrying strap is constructed to activate the alarm in a snatching or grabbing situation. The zipper has a quality lock in order to make it more complicated and burdensome to get to the alarm and deactivate it. The bags inner walls are lined with a special industrial tough material to hinder cutting, tearing or ripping. The alarm, when activated, lets out a high decibel sound thus making the situation noticeable to all as well as not giving the perpetrator ample time to carry out the crime. Also the carrying strap has a special industrial tough material to further complicate cutting of the strap.
