What experts liked
The box can withstand heat up to 1,500 degrees for half an hour, but is easily portable as it only weighs 11.6 pounds. There’s a privacy key lock for extra security.

Compact, yet holds document well
- The Gear Hunt
What experts didn't like
Some did find that it’s not exactly air tight, and others warned that the lock seems like it can be easily picked, but those who were happy with their purchase found it to be sturdy and of good quality.
