im kinda an odd one here. im just not a fan of breather bags. i have never shipped with them but to me its a pain to get shrimp out of them. with that said i did have propinqua shrimp shipped from germany in one and they were just fine lasting 2 weeks in the mail. i just use regular polly bags, and i use the blown fiber insulations to stuff the box, i do styro line it, and use a heat pack wrapped in newspaper. when i use the small boxes i make sure to fold up some extra newspaper and lay ontop and heat pack goes on that then the top styro. using a regional rate A box is not much more and allows a bit more room for heat pack. but i have used the 7x7 box and shipped crs like that
