Fireproof document bags are gaining traction in recent years not only on the basis of the features they possess but the surety they give in terms of securing important documents. One such bag produced by Home safe security is extremely popular and well sold fireproof bags in the US, called HSS XL Fireproof Safe Document Money Bag.
Before going into depth let’s take a quick look down at its features. We have given ratings based on three important factors which we believe are crucial for any fireproof bag namely; its fireproofing ability, ease of handling, and its value for money rating.

Its dimensions in addition to its fully expandable body which can expand to 5 inches in depth will ensure you can fit not only documents but other electronic items with ease.
The standard triple-layer silicone coated fiberglass will get the job done as far as maintaining its fireproofing strength is concerned.

HSS has patented and thus protected the overall design of the bag so that others are not copying their design; thus ensuring buyers are confident that the bag they’re buying is unique and not replicated by other bags manufacturers.
Home safe security has made a good reputation for listening to its customer base over the years. And thus have come up with this innovative easy to carry document bag.

Reasonably priced compared to other bags which cost more whilst providing lesser features.
Lifetime warranty and refund policy in case of a faulty product round up our list of features in this bag.
The overall look of the bag might feel a bit old fashioned.
With a con that subjective, we can’t find many reasons not to go with HSS XL Fireproof Money Bag. Having said that its fireproofing ability which is 1,000° F might sound low to many but the fact that it can withstand that much heat up to 20 minutes without giving up more than makes up for this.
Also, 1,000° F is the average temperature a house burns while on fire. Although we sincerely hope you don’t live to see such a day but still it’s numbers are good just in case you’re fretting over it.
However, one thing to understand while buying such bags is to carefully plan their storage we suggest you store these bags at the lowest possible level in your house because the heat from a fire is hotter at the top level than the bottom.
