5pc Medium Kit NEST-Z EMP 7.0 mil Faraday Bags

From $48.00

We found in our testing that the Faraday NEST-Z series bag matches the performance of the Dri-Shield bags while offering a few additional valuable features (see FAQ), providing approximately 50 dB of shielding across all relevant EMP frequencies (100 kHz to 1 GHz). That means they will reduce the electric field by at least 99.7%, reducing even a worst-case 50,000 V/m down to 158 V/m – a level that most electronics would survive.

3 × EMP Bags – 5″ x 7”
2 × EMP Bags – 8” x 10”
1 × EMP Bags – 12” x 18”

Description

One of the easiest ways to protect electronic equipment from the damaging effects of an EMP is to store them in RF-shielded bags. The challenge becomes picking out bags that provide the highest level of shielding. Most bags sold on the internet have never even been tested for shielding effectiveness. Don’t be fooled by people testing with stun guns – that’s just for show and completely irrelevant to EMP protection.

With a PhD in electrical engineering, I was fortunate enough to have the equipment to test numerous brands of bags for their shielding effectiveness. We found that the Faraday NEST-Z series bag matches the performance of the Dri-Shield bags while offering a few additional valuable features (see FAQ), still providing approximately 50 dB of shielding across all relevant EMP frequencies (100 kHz to 1 GHz). That means they will reduce the electric field by at least 99.7%, reducing even a worst-case 50,000 V/m down to 158 V/m – a level that most electronics would survive. We decided to offer the NEST-Z bags as Faraday provides convenient kits that are easy to use and great quality.

Please see the FAQs section to learn more about layering and sealing the bags.

A few questions that I am often asked:

1. What is the difference between the Dri-Shield and Faraday NEST-Z Bag? The only differences between the two bags is that the Faraday NEST-Z bag is 1.0mil heavier and offers a zip-lock closure for easy in and out access to the bag. The zip-lock feature also makes the bag more water resistant while maintaining the same EMP protection as the Dri-Shield bags.

2. Is one layer really enough? The short answer is YES. A good EMP bag can reduce the fields by 99.7% or more. That’s enough for protect nearly any electronic item. For those of you who want peace of mind you can by all means layer the bags together.

3. How do I seal up the bags? If you’re wanting to get in and out of the bag, just open and close the zip-lock. It’s that easy. Another alternative is to fold the top of the bag below the zip-lock and tape it.

4. Do you make these bags? No. I re-sell them for another company. They in turn buy them direct from the manufacturer. Anyone can buy them, so you can certainly go out and set up a retailer account and buy them yourself. You’ll save a few dollars, but honestly, not much. Much of the cost is in the shipping.

5. Why are you re-selling them? I received so many requests to recommend bags, and then when I did, folks couldn’t figure out where to buy them in small quantities. I finally decided to be the middle man and help people order high-quality EMP bags.

6. Can I trust that these are the best bags out there? They’re the best bags I’ve tested, and I’ve tested quite a few. What’s more important is that have been shown to be effective for the frequencies of an EMP. Many other companies (no names mentioned) sell their bags using hype and misleading tests.
