Where can I purchase a KrisisBag?
How many KrisisBags do I need?

Is a KrisisBag fully watertight?
KrisisBag models are made from a 750gsm PVC material used for water tanks, while all joins are heat sealed for greater protection.
What is the best way to pack contents into a KrisisBag?
Flat objects are better placed on the floor of the KrisisBag to create a base upon which other items can be placed.
Be sure not to store breakable items such as glassware in a way that if the bag were to move due to a water surge, they would move in the bag and possibly break.
Do not overfill the bag. If you have too many items to store following the usage instructions, please purchase additional KrisisBags as necessary. Over-filling the KrisisBag will put added stress on the material joins and zip. The zip must be able to be opened and closed without force or obstruction. Damage to the zip due to misuse will void the warranty.
The zips are 100mm from the top of each KrisisBag. We recommend packing all items no higher than 10cm (4 inches) below the zip line to allow easy zipping.
Heavy items are best placed at the bottom of the bag, not the top, as this could cause the bag to topple over due to an unstable centre of gravity.

Are KrisisBags easy to set up?
KrisisBags should always be placed on a flat surface to prevent unnecessary stress on the seams. Ensure you have all sides pulled out and start planning what you will put into the KrisisBag. We recommend placing flat objects on the base of the bag first and building up from there.
