Top critical review
Tested below temperatures where house fires occur.
January 29, 2019
I don't think this is false advertising or anything sinister but is no one testing this product? I see a lot of people giving five stars and yet they immediately say afterwards they haven't tested it. The product says tested up to 1100 degrees. This is exactly where the temperature for a house fire begins (cited from multiple sources). Flash fires and chemical fires, like those seen when a house burns down, can exceed 3000 degrees, especially if the heat has nowhere to go, which would well surpass this item's test limit. I myself melted the binding with a lighter (700 degrees), which opens the bag seams. I don't see how you can give something 5 stars and not even test it under a flame. I give three stars because the folder itself is great and sturdy. But the binding can be melted easily, which then splits the seams that hold the folder closed. I would sadly not trust a sum of cash or documents in this occasion. Again I don't think this company is misleading you; it's a 12 dollar folder- I should have been more realistic and that's my fault.
