The Factor 55 Ultimate Recovery Bag has been custom designed to hold Factor 55 recovery equipment in one accessible place. The bag interior is large enough to easily hold our 30' x 2" 2 ply Standard Duty Tow strap, 8' Tree Saver, and Shorty Strap II. In addition, the bag retains space for winch line extensions and multiple other pieces of rigging. Five interior stash pockets can hold shackles, pulleys, Fast Fid, etc. Two exterior stash pockets provide additional storage. Four Molle loops are stitched to the top portion of the bag and can be used with Factor 55 Strap Wraps to stow recovery dampers or other equipment for quick access.
No vehicle recovery is the same. Some recoveries are simple, while others are more complicated. So we’ve designed a Recovery Bag to be versatile, functional, and incredibly durable to last a lifetime of harsh conditions. The bottom of the bag is reinforced with 1500 denier ballistic Cordura. The 2-inch MILSPEC riggers’ webbing completely wraps around the bottom of the bag adding an additional layer of strength and support. Heavy Duty powder coated steel rings are stitched on both sides to attach a wide variety of shoulder straps (not included). Featuring Heavy Duty YKK.
Zippers, each knotted with 550 Paracord, offer a longer gripping surface for ease of opening and closing the bag. Once the bag is unzipped it completely folds flat allowing easy access to all interior components. The bag interior is reinforced Cordura and is edged with binding tape. The 1000 denier blaze orange interior Cordura is perfect for quickly finding all components of your recovery gear, even in low-light conditions.
Once packed, the bag retains a rectangular shape for easy storage and will nest neatly with your other gear. A bag built to last a lifetime.

Waxed Canvas Care
Waxed canvas is a high quality and versatile material. It is one of our favorite materials due to its ability to hold up to tough jobs and extreme weather conditions. Because waxed canvas gear is meant for rugged use it will become soiled over time. (Although one of the best features of waxed canvas is the patina it develops over a lifetime of enduring abrasive conditions.) When cared for properly, it will last for many decades.
If your Recovery Bag becomes particularly mucky please follow these tips for maintaining its unique patina:
If the waxed canvas is wet, first allow the soiled area dry. Once it has dried thoroughly, use a soft brush to gently brush away the soil/dirt from the canvas. Oily substances will simply become a part of the material. There is no good way to clean oil from waxed canvas without damaging the wax, and thus ruining the water resistance. Harsh cleaners will permanently damage the canvas.
After extended use, waxed canvas gear may require re-waxing. Simply apply a layer of high-quality wax. We recommend Otter Wax and Martexin Wax. Apply gentle heat until the wax soaks in. Please do not use anything hotter than a blow-dryer or direct sunlight.
DO NOT use detergent
DO NOT wash in a washing machine
DO NOT use harsh solvents or other harsh cleaning substances
DO NOT dry clean
The Scent of Waxed Canvas
What causes the scent? The paraffin wax that infuses the canvas gives it many of its great characteristics including its durable, leather-like feel, water-resistance, and unique scent.
When you receive your new bag, the fresh paraffin in the canvas may still be slightly damp. Once the wax dries completely, which doesn’t take long, the scent virtually disappears. If you wish to speed the wax drying process, simply leave the gear out in the open, unfolded, preferably in sunlight. A few days or so of drying in this manner dries the wax to its final state.
