FABRICATED ANTICIPATED QUESTIONS

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.

There are several reasons why LOCTOTE bags are far superior to any bags made out of Kevlar.  First, our fabric is significantly more cut-resistant, about 5 times more cut resistant.  Additionally, Kevlar has poor UV resistance, causing it to turn brown and weaken if exposed to direct sunlight.  LOCTOTE bags will not do this.

Because they’re not. If we say “cut-proof”, somebody, somewhere, with some type of cutting device will post an internet video of our bag being cut. Our bags are made out of the most advanced slash-resistant fabric in the world. They are very difficult to cut, but they can be cut. If they couldn’t be cut at all, we wouldn’t be able to make them. Our bags will keep your stuff safe, except under the most hostile circumstances.

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.

No, not at all. And to prove it, I stuffed one of our bags and had my youngest daughter sleep with it as her pillow every night for a week. She found our latex-free fabric to be soft, comfortable, non-abrasive, and non-irritating. Unfortunately, my wife cannot say the same thing about my approach for testing softness… That said, our new ultra-tough FLAKnit fabric that we use in the COALITION bag is less soft than our earlier fabrics.

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.

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’ll be happy to talk to you about it. Please reach out to us through our contact form or social media.

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.

Of course it can. It’s a textile, and nothing is 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.

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.

The construction of zippers, even metal ones, requires that they be set into a fabric tape and then stitched into the bag. This fabric tape creates a weak point where the bag can be easily cut-open (unless of course, it's made with our textiles wink wink). 

This is perfectly 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.

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.

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.

No. We cannot accept liability for any actual, consequential, or incidental damages or losses incurred as a result of using a LOCTOTE product. Though we are confident that we produce the best and most secure products available, we cannot control the situations and circumstances in which they are used, or the forces and abuses to which they may be subjected.
