May not keep it from getting stolen but, thieves are gonna have to work at it. I also don't keep anything of much value in it.

Don't suppose that thieves might have a knife available do you? How much work would it be to cut that nylon strap ?

I just don't let the bike out of my sight if I can't take the stuff with me.
It's really limiting but I'm paranoid for a reason. I'll eat fast food and sit close to the door with a view of the bike etc.
