The Smooth Sac is a stuff sack made for small diameter release cords used with various retrievable anchor systems.  Primarily designed to be used as a companion to the Smooth Operator but works well with any releasable anchor system requiring small light weight release cords.  The Smooth Sac was sized for use with 1/8 diameter Dyneema cord which is available for sale at online marine supply shops under the name AmSteel Blue by Samson Rope.

  • Fold-over-flap allows quick opening and closing with no dangling drawstrings.
  • No zippers, buttons, Velcro, drawstrings or any other such items to fail.
  • Flat shape stores easily and prevents rolling.
  • 1000D Nylon and rugged mesh for durability and rapid drainage.
  • Large inner-handle and small inner tie-in loop both positioned high inside and on opposite sides for easy access, fast identification and quick confirmation the release cord is tied in.
  • Large outer handle for easy carry and minimized snagging.

To load the Smooth Sac, tie one end of the release cord to the inner tie-in loop, stuff release cord into Smooth Sac, tie remaining end to inner handle then fold the flap over.  Optionally a Smooth Operator can be left tied to the end of the release cord and stored inside the Smooth Sac along with the release cord if desired.

When closing the Smooth Sac, it is common for people to want to fold the flap over then try to work the material into a smooth organized shape.  The trick to finishing off the closure of the Smooth Sac is a little fun once you try it a few times.  Fold the flap over to the Smooth Sac and do not worry about making it neat.  Next grab the outer handle with both hands and briskly yank outward to both sides and watch the flap magically smooth out into a neat and tidy closed flap.

The capacity information lists the comfortably full and overstuffed recommendations when using 1/8" Dyneema release cord.  Comfortably full means the bag works well with this quantity of release cord.  Overstuffed means you can get this amount of release cord in the Smooth Sac but it will take more effort to operate the fold-over-flap.  The overstuffed capacity can be exceeded, but operating the fold-over-flap will be difficult.

The small Smooth Sac is the smallest size these can be made to accommodate storing a Smooth Operator inside the bag with the release cord.  When using the medium and large Smooth Sacs simply stuff the Smooth Operator inside the bag where ever it happens to land.  When using the small Smooth Sac it is helpful to place the Smooth Operator inside the Sac on the front / mesh side of the Sac.
