You can protect important documents all you want, but once the secure hiding space you have it in catches fire, those things will still burn. That document proving you’re Warren Buffet’s illegitimate son? Gone. Those bogus passport and IDs you’ve been hiding for a second identity? Burnt to a crisp. All the treasury bonds, licenses, contracts, and whatever else you’re keeping that will be a headache to replace? Turned to ashes. Best protect them from possible fire damage and the Pelethor Fireproof Document Bag does just that.
A rolltop backpack, the reinforced bag is designed to keep out nasty fire damage, ensuring its contents can survive any disaster that passes its way. Suffice to say, if you really want to protect valuable documents, don’t just throw them in the safe. Instead, stuff them in this bag before locking the whole loot in.
The Pelethor Fireproof Document Bag looks like any regular backpack, albeit in a shell that looks unlike any of the regular materials you find used in more traditional packs. That’s because it uses a woven silicone-coated fiberglass material, which allows it to withstand temperatures of up to 1,000 degrees Celsius, giving whatever you place inside the highest chance of surviving a nasty fire. It uses two layers of that, too, for even better reinforcement, along with fire-retardant zipper, stitches, Velcro closure, cotton fabric lining, and, pretty much, everything else, so all parts of the bag should be up to the task. In case you’ve experienced itchiness with woven fiberglass before, the outfit claims this particular variant is made from the non-irritating variety, so you won’t have to go through any of that annoyance.
Aside from fireproofing, the bag is also layered in a water-resistant coating, so it will shed off water damage just as capably. That means, the bag is just as handy when keeping your documents safe during a hurricane, as you can easily grab the bag from the safe and take it with you in the middle of inclement weather while keeping its contents completely protected.
The Pelethor Fireproof Document Bag uses a rolltop enclosure that’s secured using a clasped strap, while the bag’s main chamber is closed using an integrated zipper, essentially closing off any potential pathway for flames to come through. A carry handle on top makes it easy to grab the bag in the event of emergencies, while the pair of shoulder straps let you carry it on your back like any regular pack.
Dimensions are 16.9 x 11.8 x 4.7 inches (height x width x depth), so it’s large enough to carry a good load of documents and other valuables, allowing you to keep most of your important stuff in a single place. Why not just use a fireproof safe? Sure, you can do that, but if you want to be able to grab your stuff easily while retaining the fireproof reinforcement, nothing beats having this bag that goes along wherever you go.
