This fireproof document box earned The Best rating from The Hammacher Schlemmer Institute due to its superior fire/water resistance, ease of use, build quality, and features. Panelists placed documents inside various models and lit each container on fire. The Best unit withstood ten minutes of flames before being completely burned while lesser models only lasted two minutes. When placed under a faucet of running water, the Best unit kept its contents dry after 10 minutes while inferior document bags filled with water in less than two minutes, destroying the documents inside. It was also rated as the easiest bag to use with its large opening and simple to operate locking mechanism. The Best Fireproof Document Box was also ranked as having the highest build quality due to its three layers of high quality silicone coated fiberglass, interior aluminum lining, and fire-resistant zipper with reinforced seams. Its superior list of features include a fold-out storage system, small size, and reflective patch that makes it easy to see in the dark. 4" H x 15" W x 10 1/2" D. (1 1/4 lb.)
