Best Compression Bags: What are they?
Compression bags are used to store items such as clothing, toiletries, electronics, books or anything else that needs to be stored away from direct sunlight. They have been around since the beginning of time.
But what makes them different from other types of storage containers? Why do some compresses work better than others when it comes to storing things away from direct sun?
The answer lies in their design. Most other types of storage containers are made with materials that absorb heat, which results in the item losing its original shape. For example, if you take a piece of paper and place it under a hot lamp, it will lose all its color and become white. If you then put the same piece of paper into cold water, it becomes grayish brown. These kinds of changes occur because the material absorbs heat. However, compression bags are designed to prevent these kind of losses.
When you compress something, it takes energy out of your system and stores it inside the bag instead. When you unpack your bag, the contents remain intact and don’t lose any of their original shape. This means that the contents retain their original appearance even after being compressed.
How Do They Work?
In order to understand how a particular bag works, you must first learn how all the different types of bags work. Storing items in a storage bag is fairly simple, but it involves a little more than just shoving your belongings into an oversized Ziploc and calling it a day.
