While doing the end of year cleaning I found these two plastic collapsible containers. Each closes with zippers. The plastic appears to be pretty thick. The containers are not water or air tight.

The container on the right has two side pockets with zippers. The container on the left is about 2 inches wide.


Let's play a game. Name a use for either of the containers related to survival preparedness. The top 3 ideas will get a "Thanks" from me as well as my appreciation. Let's begin! :)

You could use them for the display and retail sale of bed linens. :)

They are decent enough containers for nearly any dry goods but would need to be put inside something else. Nice for content identification though.

I can't tell the size of them but, I would use them to group items in my BOB. Like MRE's, food and snacks in one and water filter, collapsing water jugs, water purification tablets and Nalgene bottles in the other. Maybe put all my Mountain House pouches in them so I could see the labels without digging.

Since it's not waterproof, use it like an Eagle Creek packing cube. Fold and roll up TIGHTLY your socks, underwear, and t-shirts and stuff them in there. Your back pack will stay more organized, and you can get more clothes in less space. (Although maybe it's too big for that? I can't tell from the picture.)

I would use them for...

There original intention. To store bedding in them, or extra clothing perhaps. I actually have 3 of those same bags, from our family's new bedding, storing our camping blankets, pillows, and sheets. They work nice, after you get all smoky from the campfire, you can also put your clothing changes in them so as to not make everything else in your vehicle smell like smoke. Great for putting your wet clothing in also, after a good day on the streams!!!:thumb:
They don't however like very cold weather. They aren't typically made of cold crack vinyl.

Sudz is right. They are bedding bags. I use them to keep extra bedding for guests in the spare campers sothey don't get mildewy. Do not use them for anything important. The seams rip, the plastic tears and the zippers break. They are simply the packaging that sheets and comforters come in.

You might be able to use them to suffocate zombies though. Let me know how it works out. ;)

I quilt blankets, so I use bags like these for material scraps or to hold all the material and quilt tops that I work on.

I also, use these bags to seperate winter wear from summer wear.

These are great bags.

It's not that I can't think of things to use it myself, but I was hoping someone who has more experience prepping might have a better idea. Tapping the collective intelligence on this website. Thanks for not contributing.
