History of The FOOBAG:
The development of this product was brought about from the necessity of protecting Emergency Medical / Athletic Training supply Kits from the extremely damaging elements. Quite often, Athletic Trainers as well as emergency medical personnel are forced to work in weather conditions which accelerate the normal wear and tear on their most important tool of their trade….Now, the FOOBAG is here to protect and serve.
Until now, the only way to protect your medical kit during the worst of rainstorms at your Athletic events was to wrap it up in a garbage bag, tie it in a knot and hope that no water leaks in through the holes. Water in your medical kit can ruin all of the expensive medical supplies, damage your lifesaving tools and cause mold and mildew issues not conducive to sanitary medical environments. With theFOOBAG, the rain just rolls right off the top.
Keeping that same medical kit from the damaging sun can also extend the life of your most trusted investment. TheFOOBAG is also designed to protect your most needed supply bag from dust, dirt, mud and other damaging environmental particles and keep it like new for a long time.
