virtually indestructible.  SURPRISINGLY soft.

WHAT IS FLAKNIT FABRIC?

This soft, flexible yet almost indestructible textile takes anti-theft to a whole new, and almost ridiculous, level. FLAKnit® is our exclusive slash-proof fabric that achieves an ANSI/ISEA 105 cut level A9, the highest there is! It's made out of a proprietary blend of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE), fiberglass & industrial strength polyester. FLAKnit® is what makes our bags the toughest in the world. There's nothing else like it on the market, not even close.

the flaknit® story

FLAKnit™ fabric is the result of an innovative coalition consisting of LOCTOTE®, Honeywell® – the leading innovator of high-performance fiber, and Tuff-N-Lite – the smartest and craziest textile mad scientists we could find. Together, we started with a blank canvas and set out to develop proprietary yarns and knitting methods to create the toughest most slash resistant textile available to the consumer market. After dozens of failures (too heavy, too stiff, too hard, too rough, too stretchy, too fuzzy, etc.), a lot of testing, and a small fortune in dulled knife blades, FLAKnit™ emerged.

This fabric was created by us for the sole purpose of seeing if we could. We did, and then we made a bag out of it. We know what you’re thinking… “If this textile is so tough, how do you cut it to make bags out of it?” We don’t! We actually knit each bag into its final form and shape. No cutting is necessary.

What is Honeywell Spectra?

Our slash-resistant toughness comes from the superior cut protection of Honeywell's UHMWPE Spectra fiber, the same fiber used in police vests and military gear for bullet resistance. Decades of research and proven performance go into every strand of Spectra fiber, and Honeywell is committed to continue innovation in collaboration with LOCTOTE.

how to test the fabric square 

STEP 1 - Get to know the fabric. Feel it. Stretch it. Smell it. Lick it (Okay, maybe don’t lick it!)

STEP 2 - Tug on it and try to tear it. It’s impossible.

STEP 3 - Take a knife (please be careful) and run it across the fabric. Try to get through the fabric by slashing it. C’mon, harder! Is it impossible to get through? No, but it’ll take some serious time and effort.

STEP 4 - Get Creative and give it the "business". You know what you put your bags through. See how well your FLAKnit fabric square stands up to the same abuses.

STEP 5 - Share your fabric square. Show your friends how cool it is. Have them try the technology themselves. Then, if you decide you want a bag made out of the toughest fabric in the world, go to loctote.com and get yourself a Flak Sack II or Flak Sack COALITION.
