This is my review, unboxing, and fireproof test of the Foloda Fireproof Document Bag, NON-ITCHY Fire Proof Water Resistant Storage Bag for Cash, Passport, Documents, Jewelry and Valuables (15″ x 11″,Silver) found at https://amzn.to/2On3fjj.
I was really excited to get to try out this bag. Anything that I can put a flame too just sounds like fun. The first thing I wanted to try out, was to see if this bag was as fireproof as they said it was. I was able to get a flame up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit for my test. Each of my tests left a flame on the same spot for around a minute. The flame did leave a scorch mark, and some discoloration to the bag, but the documents inside were left safe. In a few of the tests, the documents inside got some scorching to them on their bottom edges. I believe that this is due to the bottom of the bag. It only happened when a document was touching the bottom edge, and when the flame was directly on the edge as well. If the direct flame was on a different area of the bag, the document inside was left unharmed. So, if you use this bag, I would recommend tapping it after loading your documents into it, to make sure that the edges of the documents aren’t touching the curved bottom area. I also tested out the claim of being water resistant. After throwing some water on both sides of the bag, I saw the water beading up on the bag, like a waxed car. Upon checking the documents inside the bag, they were completely dry.
I was very happy with the final outcome of my tests. I do wish that the bottom edge protected a little better, but with my workaround of tapping it away from the edge of the bag, I think that it will be fine. My plan is to store my important documents in the bag, within my safe. Kind of a double protection. Also, in case of an emergency, I can open my safe, and grab the bag with everything in it. That was it’s a fast grab, and still being protected from flames and water.
