Of course it can. It’s a textile, and nothing is completely cut-proof. With the right tool, you can cut through anything. We didn’t perform a miracle, we just created a really tough bag that would require a lot of time or effort to get into. In most cases, thieves will just move on. Our bags will keep your stuff safe, except under the most hostile circumstances.
Actually it is. Our partner who developed the fabric makes protective clothing for law enforcement, corrections, homeland security, and mental health workers. We have taken their technology and pushed it to the next level for bags. If you're interested in slash-resistant t-shirts click here.
No! Absolutely 100% NOT! No fabric will protect you from a gunshot. It is irresponsible to even imply otherwise. Don’t consider this, or any other textile, for gunshot protection even for a second.
We use a proprietary fabric made out of an innovative combination of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) and other technical fibers weaved by special high-density knitting machines, creating a fabric that is unlike anything else anywhere.
No, not very easily. Our straps have a breaking strength in excess of 1,000 pounds, and the steel aircraft cable inside makes them very resistant to most cutters. Even the grommets are installed in a proprietary way that enables them to hold a 1,000 pound load without tearing loose. Odds are that after a few tugs and slashes, most thieves would move on to an easier target.
We design all our bags in Columbus, Ohio and responsibly manufacture them in China. Our Flaknit fabric is designed and manufactured in the USA.
No. We tried, but our kids revolted and made us buy them ice cream and play video games with them all day. It wasn’t a good business decision.
Right now we only have a few basic colors in stock but new colors will be available soon! If there is a particular color you would like to see, please tell us about it. We would love to hear your input.
They're heavier than a thin nylon bag. The physical weight of our fabric is similar to that of a heavy canvas or nylon (300-500 grams per sq/m). The Flak Sack weighs 1 lb 7.25 ozs and the lock weighs 3.75 ozs.
We use a high-performance twisted multifilament polyester thread with advanced UV protection and a non-wicking finish specially designed for outdoor applications where seam strength retention and fade prevention during UV exposure are required. The advanced UV protection reduces strength degradation over traditional filament polyesters while also reducing color loss and fading. The non-wicking finish helps reduce moisture migration through seams.
Actually, aluminum foil works as well as many of the RFID blocking materials on the market — not well at all. It will somewhat weaken the RFID signal across a very limited spectrum, but it will NOT prevent your cards and passports from being scanned through fabrics at a close range. We use a tested and certified RFID blocking material which exceeds industry standards for shielding all contactless credit cards, passports, drivers licenses, ISO 14443A/B and EPC Gen1/Gen2 contactless smart cards that operate at 13.56 Mhz and above (13.56 Mhz interface is the one that typically contains personal data).
As you can probably tell by now, we do not skimp on anything. We use the best fabric, thread, hardware, straps, rope, leather, and workers available. All this stuff is very expensive. We are not making the best margins in the business – just the best products.
This is normal for these types of fabrics. We do extensive lab testing on every batch of bags, and we can assure you that the bag is not weakened or compromised in any way by this.
Typically when this happens, the user actually reset the lock accidentally, but typically only by one digit. Put the lock to your combination, and then one at a time try changing each number one digit left, and then on digit right. For example, if your combination was 0-0-0, you would do this sequence: 0-0-0, 9-0-0, 1-0-0, 0-9-0, 0-1-0, 0-0-1, 0-0-9. Nine out of ten times this works.

It became clear to us that there was a huge number of people out there, who given the nature of their work, put themselves at risk of sever injury every day. We developed shirts for people who are on the front line of safety, security, and industry every day.
