Armored Outdoor Gear is a company that was started on the basis of solving a problem. As avid hikers and guides in the Grand Canyon the founders were always finding a need to protect their food. One day they came across a stainless steel mesh that could help solve the problems they were facing. This is how the Ratsack was born.

The Ratsack bag is lightweight, flexible stainless-steel mesh bag that seals at the top with sturdy hook and loop. This was designed to prevent the risk of having a zipper break. This bag is currently sold in two popular sizes, small which is 19.7 liters and large 41 liters. Due to the popularity of the Ratsack, Armored Outdoor Gear is also working on creating a new line of products to take the popular Ratsack design to the next level by adding backpacks and handbags.

Along with creating innovative products, Armored Outdoor Gear also works closely with NACET Flagstaff. Moonshot at NACET is a nonprofit organization that reviews business pitches from young entrepreneurs.  Pitches that are received well are then paired with an organization such as Armored Outdoor Gear, where the company is able to mentor the ambitious individual. They help guide them through every step of the process including light manufacturing at their campus in Flagstaff, AZ.  As well as mentorship Armored Outdoor Gear also works closely with Navajo Nation and has provided over 2,000 reusable face masks to its members.
