There are many small things now that will alarm you on cell phone or just loud that you can attache to your bag. If it's moved or picked up it make noise and send you alert. Check Amazon for them.

Hide a tracking chip in the lining of your bag. They're rather cheap, now, and the police can locate the thieves, and the bag.

Alan,
You're right on.
Those tracking chips are quite cheap now.
That's a good solution.

Great to get your bag back after it's stolen but what I said will let you stop your bag from being stolen in the first place.

I used an alarm system on my luggage about 30 years ago when I did wedding videos. Sometimes thieves would take your case when you are standing right next to it.
I ended up hardly using it because every time I put the case down I had to activate the motion sensor alarm. This was done with a combination code. So if I had to get my wallet or money or anything at all, I had to put in a combination code and put down the case and then again to deactivate it. If I'm working and have to get something out of my case in a hurry, I have to deactivate the alarm first, get what I need and then activate it again.
I checked Amazon as you suggested but I couldn't find anything that is practical.
Would you let me know which alarm you had in mind? I would appreciate it.
Thanks,
Ihor
