The answer to keeping valuables and other items safe and protected from the elements could be found at this week’s IFTD show.
The aLOKSAK is a resealable bag designed to keep out water, contaminates, sand and humidity and comes in a variety of handy sizes ideal for electronic gear.
Certified waterproof to a depth of 60 metres, this fishing-friendly bag is made from 6mm film, and has patented end and side seals and two patented hermetic seals at the top.
The manufacturer says the film is military grade and tough enough for bio-hazard transport and storage. It is used by branches of the US and foreign military as well as government and law enforcement agencies worldwide. The aLOKSAK will stay sealed under pressure and can even be used to preserve DNA evidence!
The lanyard version of the aLOKSAK is ideal for keeping valuables and other items close to your person. The manufacturers say it is important to test the seal before use by submerging the bag in water and checking for escaping air.
