Hi all,

I am currently translating job role descriptions for a tobacco company and would appreciate any assistance with the above term, which appears in the following context about the physical efforts required as part of the job role:

Puede requerir el uso de materiales ligeros (Manto de saco hilado, Pesada de 6 ½ lbs y 56lbs. En dos partes de 28 lbs.).

Many thanks in advance!

Woven sack cover

Hi, I am using my guessing skills here.

I would go for woven sack cover.

I recently translated a product porfolio for the company armstrong (http://www.armstrongsewing.com/) and i am sure that the material is woven sack.

What is understood by "manto" is more difficult without experience in the field. My guess is that is a cloth to keep the tobacco leaves flat which can be used also to transport them, therefore, more like a cover.

I hope this helps you.
