I also try and travel very light so I only have what looks like a daypack. Most thieves target people with big backpacks who can't react quickly or even can't see what's going on.
As for really obvious stuff, no cameras round necks and make sure you don't look or dress like the richest person in that environment. Thieves will always target the better-dressed victims and leave the scruffs alone!
And when you sit down, stick your leg through the bag's strap and have it in sight at all times. Most thefts are opportunist and involve people catching you off-guard.
Don't ever be put off traveling - just be careful and discreet.
