Why not just make the bags out of Kevlar?
There are several reasons why we have chosen not to use Kevlar in the production of our anti-theft bags. The fabric we use for reinforcing our bags is significantly more resistant to cutting or slashing in comparison to Kevlar. The internationally recognised ISO cut resistant grading system gives fabric a score from 1 to 5, with Kevlar usually scoring a level 2 or in unique circumstances a level 3. The fabric we use scores a level 5, the highest cut resistant grading possible. Kevlar is also traditionally poor at reflecting UV and can weaken or discolour if exposed to direct sunlight.
How do you clean these bags?
We suggest just wipe your bag with a soft cloth soaked in warm water. For more stubborn stains use a light detergent.
What is RFID?
Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) is the use of radio waves to read and capture information stored on a tag attached to an object. A tag can be read from up to several feet away. These tags include the electronic chips on modern day credit cards and passports. These chips contain sensitive and personal data, that can be misused if they fall into the wrong hands.
How do slash resistant panels safeguard my belongings?
There are some thieves who will cut the outside of your bag so that your belongings fall out of the bag, into their waiting hands. This can be done in a crowded place with little or no realisation on the part of the victim. With the slash resistant panels, were someone to try to slash your bag, they could not cut through to your belongings so that they stay where they're meant to - in your bag.
Is this bag waterproof?
The outer material of this bag is made from water repellant nylon. It is perfect for those occasions when you are caught in an unexpected rain shower. However, if you accidentally dropped your bag in a pool of water, or if the bag gets soaked in a heavy downpour then water could seep through the zippers and the edges of the various compartments.
Can I use this bag for everyday use?
Absolutely. You don't have to be a traveller to use these bags. They are a great option for daily use as they are extremely lightweight, stylish and functional. The safety features are an added bonus.
What is on the keyring in this bag?
The keyring has a flashlight on it, you can either squeeze the flat part of the plastic to light it up, or flick the little switch.
Why don't you call these cut-proof bags?
Of course we would like to claim that our bags are cut-proof, but in reality that is simply impossible. Even though our bags are made with the best technology and highest grading of cut resistant fabric, if someone spent long enough trying to cut into them they would eventually make their way through. After all it is fabric, not steel. If you want to keep your things safe from opportunistic thieves or bag slashers, then our bags are a great solution. But if you're looking for an indestructible, cut-proof bag that can never be opened - buy a safe.
Is the bag bulletproof?
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.
