All materials for this bag design were chosen based on their ability to deter contamination and their ease of cleaning. The bag is also bed bug resistant.

The surface is made from a slick, waterproof material that easily wipes clean. The waterproof zipper is flat protecting the teeth from contamination.

No Velcro or elastic is used due to difficulty in cleaning. The feet are elevated between the bag and ground, preventing contamination on the underside.

The modules can be easily cleaned by removing them, as well as cleaning inside the bag.

  1. Hello, this is a very good review! Looks like this bag company puts a lot of thought into their products. My aunt is a nurse and we’ve been looking for a nice work related gift for her. I personally like the looks of the Deluxe bag better but it doesn’t look to be as good for infection control? That said – is the whole infection control design a real problem in other bags? Does it really matters that much for nurses, is it a real problem? They still have to clean their bag after each visit don’t they? Also what about the dimensions of those bas – they look kind of big? compared to some other bags (here for instance http://www.travelnursedatabank.com/travel-nursing/top-10-medical-bags-for-home-healthcare-nurses/)
