Watertight File Box 4.8 5 73 73
Sturdy Box I bought this to keep my old tax files and others that don't need to be accessible on a daily/weekly/monthly basis. (I have the Bristol Desktop File for those.) I originally had a "banker's box" for them, but I don't trust those for storage in basements, garages and other places that can get damp. The container itself has the ridges to hold either letter or legal hanging file folders. I haven't tested it for air or water leakage yet, but the seal on one of them seems to have a gap and I'm not sure if it will hold up. I may try to exchange it 'cause I just bought it a couple of days ago. Otherwise, a great product. March 3, 2010
Great File Tote We had limited space in our office and needed totes that were easy to move, sturdy and economical. This tote met all of those needs. We're very happy with this great file box. March 15, 2010
Ultimate file box This is the right size for all my financial files. It keeps everything neat and easy to find. I had purchased one from a office store and it came cracked and promptly fell apart. This one is wonderful. March 23, 2010
The Best File Container/Storage You Will Ever Find I can honestly say that this is the best file container/storage you will ever find because I have filed old files and taxes for my small business for years. But when I purchased one last week for my sick brother to help him file all of his important papers, I could not beleive how good the container really is! It fits so much and its neat and nicely contained. The see thru is a plus also. I have always loved the Container Store even though there isn't one near our home. My husband takes me as a special treat from time to time. It is truly my favorite container store! You will find containers you don't find anywhere else. You can find cheaper copies elsewhere but the quality is no where near the Container Stores'!!! Thanks, Kimmy March 31, 2010

Is this acid-free?

Many Iris products are made with acid-free plastic/polypropolene. Is that the case with this file-box? I hope so since one of the product features is that it is ideal for -long term storage.
