Designed to protect unprocessed film from harmful X-rays during airport security and customs checks. Lead-lined bags also protect other sensitive media from the low-dosage X-ray machines used in airports around the world. Without FilmGuard, unprocessed film can become fogged or streaked. Use FilmGuard in carry-on luggage, because checked luggage is exposed to high-dosage X-rays that FilmGuard cannot protect against.

FilmGuard bags were tested for effectiveness by InVision Technologies, Inc., manufacturers of the only Federal Aviation Administration-approved checked-luggage scanning system. Films with up to ISO 800 speeds were tested. The extensive tests showed that the FilmGuard design will protect film and disks from the low-dosage x-ray units used to check carry-on luggage. (The tests also showed that the amount of lead needed to protect film from high-dosage x-ray units would make the bags too heavy to be practical.)

Triple-layer construction also keeps dust and moisture out: lead-impregnated vinyl sheet sandwiched between an outer shell of ballistic nylon and interior lining of smooth lining. Available in three sizes, in black only.

Size Available in three sizes:
  • Mini FilmGuard - Holds nine 35mm film cassettes or a small camera: 5.25 x 8" (13 x 20cm)
  • Small FilmGuard - Holds fifteen rolls of 35mm film or small camera with a few rolls: 9.5 x 8" (24 x 20cm)
  • Large FilmGuard - Holds thirty-five rolls of 35mm film, or three 50-sheet boxes of 4x5" film, or small camera with a few rolls: 10.5 x 12" (27 x 31cm)

      This was a great product for me as I was transporting film around Africa and used it as both an airport protective bag as well as for keeping the 120 film in a dark environment when there wasn't much dark to be had. It held at least 60 rolls of film and was easy to handle. It also seemed to be enough to convince most of the TSA people that it was film and that they didn't need to open it and rummage around - with a nicely worded request that is. The heavy lead liner also seemed to stop most of the X-rays - but that's just a guess. Some people said it scared wildlife, but for my situation, it didn't create any problem and in fact, the velcro was good for getting to stuff quickly.

                    Todays X ray machines at airports are not harmful. However, its better to be safe than sorry, machines can fail sometimes and you dont weant this to be your film when they do.

                      I've not yet used this for taking film through airport scanners, but can say that the build quality is outstanding. A quality product that should last for many years and many travels.

                            When I take film on trips, it pays to keep it protected from potential x-ray damage. I often bring ISO 3200 Ilford and Kodak films, and those are damaged very easily by x-rays. The bag is fairly simple and keeps the film safe.

                              I travel frequently, and shoot high speed film. Great heavy duty bag that will protect your exposed and unexposed film, but will also get you flagged for additional screening by TSA agents.

                                Big enough for seven 5pk og 120film, or for about 78 rolls of film (120mm) when I take them out of the package.

                                  Great design, much better than the old ones that I used long ago when I shot just film. Much needed today, when bag scanning is so much widespread. The large size is still small for my needs, 3 or 4 maight do the job for me.

                                    Despite the airports claim that undeveloped films under ISO 800 don't take risk of X-Ray's damages, I'd rather keep them as protect as I can. This bag is good and big enough for the quantity of films I usually carry with me when traveling abroad.

                                        Just used the bag, and my film turned out undamaged (even the few rolls of Kodak TMZ 3200). A word of advice would be to take this bag out of your carry on and put it through the x-ray machine separately because they went through my bag both times looking for it.

                                          I travel frequently and x rays was my main concern. Since I have these bags I have no worries. Does its job.

                                              Great for those who still love film and like to travel, easy to carry, fits on every carry on bag.
                                              As airport security is more demanding I'd recommend to, as you have to do with laptops, take the bag out and let them look at it.

                                                This bag is a large enough size to handle four boxes of bulk film, yet not too large that it was a bother to carry. Also durable and high quality. My only complaint is that it doesn't have a handle. And what about some color options? Otherwise it would have received 5 stars.
