Theft around the world continues to rise and among the victims of theft, tourists have always been easy targets for thieves. However, research into the investigation of tourists perceptions of and attitudes towards the existing designs of anti-theft products is scarce. In this study, several bag theft cases were identified and corresponding anti-theft designs were selected. Consumers perceptions of advantage, interest, and satisfaction were collected through online image survey among college students. The results identified consumers perceptions of the existing designs of anti-theft travel bags and provided the designers with useful and practical suggestions during the bag designing processes. Modified designs are expected to enhance the theoretical plausibility of anti-theft function of travel bags, which might be capable of building up barriers to criminals and preventing or reducing the occurrences of bag theft incidents.
