aLOKSAK bags are resealable element-proof storage bags featuring a hermetic seal. That means absolutley no water, air, dust or humidity permeates the closure. The transparent bags are flexible, puncture resistant and designed for a wide range of applications ans environments.
This set of four aLOKSAK Waterproof Bags from Loksak contains one of each of the following size bags: 3.7 x 7", 4 x 7", 6 x 9", and 8 x 11". The bags are waterproof and airtight protecting your electronics, documents and other items that need shelter from the elements. A double-zipper closure creates a hermetic seal, which prevents any air, dust, or micro-organisms from leaving or entering the bag once it is sealed.
The recyclable and reusable aLOKSAK bags are made from FDA and NSA-approved medical grade polyethylene that is safe for both food and biohazard storage. You can make and receive calls, and use touchscreens from phones or tablets within the bag. They are certified waterproof up to 200', and remain effective from -40° to 140°F.
There would seem to be nothing much to say about a re-sealable bag - but there is! I've been keeping my phone in one for the past month - taking it in and out of pockets and bags constantly, opening and closing it about once a day to charge the phone. Result? - The bag still has a watertight/airtight seal.
So, a bag is not just a bag. There's no comparison between one of these aLokSaks and the re-sealable bags you buy for the freezer - the seal is much more effective and durable for a start, and the bag itself is made from a higher grade of material so its a lot tougher. The seal is easy to open as the back is offset from the front (you'll know what I mean when you see one).
There is a comparison to be made with other phone and iPad cases that fill the shelves currently - aLokSaks are lighter, cheaper and just as airtight.
Finally on product life; it may be that aLokSaks don't last as long as more bespoke products, but when they wear out its no hardship to get another one, and I have no doubt that they will last the length of your trip however far and for however long you roam.
