Caught-In-The-Act Mail Bag MB1


Please note safety issues and other points about the use of Caught-In-The-Act products, do read our FAQ page for additional information

Please remember to play safe: The grommets set lower down the sides of the mail bag allow for reasonable air exchange. Never leave a person alone while they are in a restraint. Given that if the person is inside the bag for a long period of time, sweat will soak the bag and make it non-breathable. The holes might allow small tubing to be inserted or to steal hidden keys into the bag for the escape artist.


Escape challenge mail bags so strong that they easily lift and hold 250 lbs of static load. (Static or dead load is a weight at rest - not moving. Dynamic load is the weight or mass in motion so that a safety rule often is applied that for dynamic loads, or weight in motion, the suspension device needs to be able to hold 5 times the dead or static load.)

For outdoor adventure, a storage bag that can hold all your gear off the ground while camping or for escape challenges of course.

We feel the MB1 is an excellent escape artist's un-suspended or suspended escape challenge device.

Made of 100% imported cotton, very heavy #8 cotton duck, a 3 ply extra dense woven fabric, and non-breathable when wet.

There are 8-d-rings for attachment of vertical lift lines, or closing over the opening.

Large grommets at the opening may be used for rope or chain cincher of the mail bag but cannot be used under any tension or suspension. Use the d-rings for suspension.

2" Nylon seatbelt webbing reinforces the cotton bag.

2 nylon belts can close the upper area of the bag.

A handle is sewn in the base of the bag for ease in moving things around.

The MB1 is designed to accommodate bigger escape artists. It has triple stitch seams, webbing to reinforce the # 8 cotton duck and a choice of ways to close the opening. Suspended or not all escape artists need to have a safety on hand to make sure there are no safety issues.

 Made 57" high, 23" in diameter, the extra length makes full enclosure much easier to enter, and less restrictive for the less flexible person. While some think the larger bag makes it much easier for escape attempts, the degree of difficulty is really a component of how much, and how tight the opening is locked or closed in.  Consider in suspension that escape is only for a person who can lift their bodyweight with one arm for an extended period of time while attempting to undo the ropes and belts at the opening with the free hand. Even Houdini could not do that.
