    Still smells like sulphur inside. Should be harmless.

    Yes these are the containers for personal decon kits, which used to be a porous bag full of treated talcum powder, that were issued with gas masks. I think the chemical is rather benign unless taken internaly as it was meant to be used on human skin as well as clothing.

    I had a real chance to run one of these through the paces yesterday. I decided to use one to hold my high dollar digital camera with Zeiss lens. Needless to say, I dropped it into some drilling mud with a nice slick of crude and salt brine mixed in. Needless to say, it held up fine. It did not clean up too well, but everything I own is soaked with crude and salt brine anyhow. It now matches my cloths. I am going to buy another lot of them. I suggest them to anyone wanting some serious water/oil/salt proof hard containers.

    Okie Dokie. My bath time was completed with the dry pouches full of TP. I can say that they both turned out dry TP. I can say that these will be a valuable addition to my stuff. I also really like the built in metal clips. The writing on the box states that whatever used to be in these (Decon Packets) are poisonous and toxic. There are a lot of fancy latin names for the chemicals involved, but the containers appear clean. I did notice a mild sulphur smell when I opened the containers, but have since ran them through the rinse cycle of the dishwasher. Yes, my wife busted me doing that. And yes, I am sleeping in the spare room tonight.

    I got five of these for $18.00, and used a $10.00 off coupon to remove the shipping charges. Thats about $3.50 each. Well worth the moola.

    Just an FYI. The pics do NOT include me bathing with the alleged water tight pouches. Sorry to have gotten the women folk's (or Mick's) hopes up.

    Beat you to them. I just talked myself into them and bought a set. I will report back when I get them. Of course, I bought a couple more mags for my Saiga, and a cool set of Bundeswehr jackets with the Iron Eagle. I can rarely get away from the Sportsmans guide for less then $100.00. Thank the powers that be I bought that membership a while back, and had a coupon.

    Those evil Sportsman's guide people. WHY oh WHY to they have to sell only the stuff I really want and need?
    Ok, I got the pouches in today, and another (one of WAY too many Saiga 30 round mags). I have not fiddled with the pouches yet, but will do so in the next couple of days. I will get some photos, and I will put some wadded up toilet paper in one and set it in the sprinkler, and some wadded up TP in the other and sink it in the bathtub for a while. A while back I took a bath and had a water tight tube with me in there, my wife caught me. It would have been easier to explain that I was cheating on her rather then explaining why I was taking a bath with a water tight tube full of toilet paper. Go figure.

    When I lived in the DFW area, I used to love CTD, but alaz, I am 6 hours away nowadays. I take what I can get, where I can get. I also loved Omahas, and would also set up a table at the Mesquite Gun show and sell reloading stuff. The gun shows are a great place, sometimes, to get stuff also.

    Very true that they do bundle nicely.

    Guess it is a matter of perspective. Out here in the hinterlands, I cannot get anything except by internet or mail order. Sometimes, also, you have to look at the quantity. On the surface this looks expensive

    Until you realize you are getting 6 or 15 depending on what you order. A lot of these items are multiple pieces. In fact about half of them are.

    I want to like them for the same reasons. They often have real unique stuff that being a geek I am drawn toward. When I browse through their items though I am just struck by how crazy their pricing is with items tending to fall into $14.99, $29.99, $49.99 or big $299, $499, $799.

    This makes me realize that their pricing is based upon VERY healthy mark-ups instead of approaching any cost/worth analysis. The quality is often good but so are other surplus wholesellers if you are careful.
