I live in an area where hurricanes occur. Is this truly waterproof?

Thanks to water-proof zipper fully covered by enclosed flaps, Flypal Fireproof and water-resistant document bags are well insulated against water. The inside will not get wet if the outside is exposed to the water for the short term. However, immersing in water or washing the bag in water, water may seep from the bag’s seams. To achieve the best water-proof result, we recommend putting the documents in plastic ziplock bags then packing in the Flypal document bags.
