Description

We upgraded the original theft-resistant drawstring backpack to an even more secure sack. The Flak Sack II is the world's toughest theft-resistant drawstring backpack. It's made from our exclusive FLAKnit slash-proof fabric that achieves an A9 cut level, the highest there is! This lockable bag is like a portable safe for your valuables. Designed to accommodate the lifestyles of people on the go who need their essentials with them, but are not able to be constantly looking after them. This bag doesn’t just carry your belongings, it protects them. After having my stuff stolen on vacation, I became obsessed with creating the toughest most theft-resistant bags the world had ever seen. In two years we went from idea, to the highest grossing backpack in the history of Kickstarter, to getting a spot on ABC's Shark Tank. We continue to compromise on nothing when it comes to quality and authenticity, and cut no corners in crafting goods built to outlive their owners. - Don Halpern CEO/Founder Traveling to an unknown place, doing your daily commute, hanging by the beach or just find yourself in a busy place, the Flak Sack II is ready for the challenge. Our bags are designed to protect your belongings from theft and built to last a lifetime. This bag is the ultimate portable safe that allows you to live more & worry less. Our exclusive FLAKnit slash-proof fabric achieves an A9 cut level, the highest there is! This soft, flexible yet almost indestructible textile takes anti-theft to a whole new, and almost ridiculous, level. Our slash-proof 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. FLAKnit is what makes our bags the toughest in the world. There's nothing else like it on the market, not even close. Have peace of mind knowing your belongings are covered by this stuff.

abunda_amazon_reviews I bought the loctote in December, and after using it all of three or four times, the material unravelled where the opening/rope is.. I emailed them and they told me that it was a result of "Serious or intentional abuse" after looking at the picture. If you look at the bag, you can tell that it has not been abused, its clean and in near new condition. A company that stood by its product would not manufacture an excuse to refuse to replace it, or even look at it in person. I've had flimsy canvas bags like this one and none of them had this problem.

I got my loctote bag a few days ago and the sheer quality of the item compelled me to leave a review, but I’ll get to the bag itself in a moment. First I want to address the customer service, which absolutely floored me. I reached out to the company via email because at the time they only had the Coalition bag on Amazon, and being a poor student (pursuing a law degree) I needed to use gift cards to afford it. The day I sent my email I received a response from a very nice guy named Christopher, and after an exchange of emails he helped me purchase a bag without any hiccups. Christopher was absolutely phenomenal, even getting in touch with me after my purchase to ensure I was not just satisfied but happy with my new backpack. Now to the bag. The reason I am poor (well, one of them, ahem *ridiculous tuition*) is because my last backpack, with my MacBook Pro, iPad and several expensive legal textbooks was stolen after I left it in a classroom while I went to the restroom. The class let out early and some $&*@$ took the whole bag, even though I had a travel lock on the zippers(I know, pitiful). After doing some research online I found the loctote industrial bag company, and decided to make the investment. 10000/10 best purchase ever. It’s a lot roomier than I expected, big enough to fit my replacement 13” laptop(probably not enough room for a 15” though), plus 2 8”x10” textbooks that are each a couple inches thick, with enough room left for my lunch and whatever else I need that day. The interior pockets are super convenient for pens, earbuds, chargers whatever you need. I like the RFID blocking feature, it’s nice to have the extra peace of mind so I toss my wallet in there when I take the bus or train. The actual material of the bag is probably my favorite part, it just feels supple and durable. It’s thick stuff, whatever it is, and it gives the bag a nice heft, which I was a little worried about at first, but after wearing it I found that the rope straps are plenty wide so it doesn’t cut into your shoulder, even when you load it up. Embarrassingly, I also found that the thickness adds padding to whatever is inside. I say embarrassingly because I was bombing a hill on my skateboard, late to class, and ate s*** on my back. Not only was the bag fine (not a loose thread) but my laptop, which, to be fair, was in a lightly padded case, was totally fine after being used as a sled for 20ft for my 180 pounds. I haven’t had anyone try to break into the bag, but if that doesn’t speak to it’s quality I don’t know what will. The only thing I changed is the lock, it seems like it would do the job but I wanted a black one because it matches better and plus it’s more low key. I’m not exactly trying to advertise that I have a locking bag, which presumably would have something expensive in it. At the end of the day this thing is worth it just for the sense of security it gives you. My girlfriend wants one because she likes that it’s Bear Proof “just in case” she gets attacked by one on a well populated campus, she’ll be mauled but her bag will be fine. Google it, they got it certified somehow. When I read reviews of anything online I’m always skeptical. People BS these all the time, but for what it’s worth this is the only company I’ll buy a bag from again. I love it, I love it, I love it. I already have my eye on one of their “sport” ones to take to the gym, so I don’t have to constantly empty it and refill it. Plus it comes in a really cool retro denim color;);;Reviewed in the United States on February 22, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Better than Apple Care;;T;;/gp/customer-reviews/R5G9JBLW0IQVA/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B07B4SBD9R;;;Really like the quality of the bag while it lasted.
