Sack-Ups are a cotton fabric with an oil and silicon base designed to prohibit corrosion and protect against dust, dirt, and scratches. The cotton’s natural wicking action draws out moisture and is “perfect for year round storage.” Originally intended to help hunters protect their guns (and often called gun socks), Sack-Ups are now also used for tools, knives, fishing equipment, archery equipment, golf clubs, and medical instruments.
Since its startup in 1985, this company has sold American-made products, and does everything (e.g., preparing the yarn, knitting and sewing the fabric, printing, shipping…) in their North Carolina facility.
The Sack-Ups Protector 10 (pictured above), which has 10 pockets for six small knives and four folders or equivalently-sized tools, costs around $13.
