- About Us
An idea born from necessity. Owner & Inventor, Evan Papel, was pick pocketed one day traveling through Europe. Over a beer and what cash he had left, his idea for The Pocket Sock crossed his mind.
Zip It Sox was born in 2002 and evolved to a travel accessories brand, Zip It Gear, distributed throughout the US and across a number of countries world wide.
Today, ZipItGear.com is home of the Pocket Sock®. Thousands of people are enjoying their travels and work outs knowing that their money, keys, passports and other valuables are out of reach from would be pick pockets and even accidental loss.
In the coming years, we expect new product and inventions based on the incognito essense of Pocket Socks. Please feel free to sign up for our Zip It Snippet which will get you an instant discount on your first purchase in addition to announcements of sales and new items. (We do not typically mail more than 4 times per year as constant emails from companies we like kind of bugs us too.)
Hey, thanks for visiting and supporting a unique and small business home grown here in the USofA.
