somewhatshocked Shredded and tightly packed newspaper, styrofoam, thick layers of other insulating material. But that's only if it's below freezing.

If it's below freezing, you can also use a heat pack.

To the OP: breather bags aren't necessary. Just make sure you're not freezing them or cooking them during transit.

callisto9 What do you insulate with? Newspaper? Towels? Just whatever you have around the house?

somewhatshocked As long as it's not below freezing and you insulate the box, absolutely.

i'm a ninja If you can trap enough air in the bag a ziplock should work. Why not go to your LFS and pick up some fish bags? We give them away for free at the LFS I work at
