    Try this! Polyethylene and it has a thick rubber seal inside the lid.

    First I bought them just for restoration and put chemicals in it. Later I figured out this are the best containers to bury them with stored food, important papers etc.

    They are available in different sizes from 10 to 200 liters and the lid closes waterproof.

    If someone donīt like regular backpacks for any reason, he can by the 30 liter square containers and put two of them on a backpack like this:

    Nothing will get wet anymore and you can use the closed containers include all stuff in it as a floating aid if you have to cross a river etc.

    Also if you make boat tours, this is the best way to store things and if they go over board, they will always float!

    I am back, after 14 months of hospital and rehab. Storing anything long term is best stored in mylar bags using a vacuum sealer, then individual bags can be stored in a pvc pipe, as mentioned. To further insure contents remain in pristine condition put a disposable hand warmer in the pvc pipe before sealing. The hand warmer will absorb the oxygen in the pvc pipe to create a partial vacuum. Good Luck.

    Thanks. If you are going to store photographs, cards or any printed material, you will need to first put them in some kind of hard case and place acid free paper between each one. Good Luck. rockhound
