To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This box bag seems to fill the bill for protecting documents. However, I break out in a rash whenever I come in contact with the exterior. I won't have to touch the bag often, but when I do, my skin breaks out and itches like crazy.
I had a metal security box with a key and I dropped it while it was open and broke the key so I decided to go with something more portable. The description emphasizes the fireproof and waterproof nature and mentions security for money, passport, jewelry and papers. The lock that comes with it is less durable than a TSA lock so if someone took this bag, they could cut the lock off in 10 seconds. It is NOT secure. I am keeping it because I am not that concerned about theft and I am not putting anything of significant value in it. So if you want something to keep papers from being ruined in fire or flood I am guessing this will work based on what the manufacturer says. If you are looking for something with high security this isn't the product for you.
Looks roomy and sturdy, but over-priced for such an item. I was disappointed to have no literature included in the shipment. Also, the lock comes with no instructions (no email follow-up as mentioned in the other reviews, either).
I replaced an old metal strong box with this because it was larger to accommodate large folders. I was surprised that it looks like meltable plastic, but I am trusting that it is fire proof as stated. Size is good, but it's limp like a purse. That was a disappointment. Hope we never have to put it to the test.
My son travels for work. He is not working at the moment but will be at the end of January. Doesn't look like the picture. It is soft material not hard and able to stand up. Will add to this after he gets back to work.
