The 72 hour heat packs are excellent for Priority in the winter. Linda Olson uses the 40 hour on all shipments but the shorter the time the hotter they get. A 72 hour takes a few days to reach maximum temperature and can burn for almost a week in a 1 inch styro lined 7x7x6 box (I experimented).

I'm on page 5 and I have seen no mention of not enough packing material in that box. If the box got turned upside down, the fish would be touching the heat pack!..and it would be bouncing around.

If I'm shipping in winter, I'll use a 24hr heat pack and ship express. If buyer wants priority in winter...sorry you can't have my fish.

Shouldn't the heat pad go under the bag so that the heat rises upwards and warms the bag up more?

There's debate on where the heat pack should go. Linda Olson (transhipper in the US) puts them under, however the heat pack instructions say to place them on the box lid. I've done experiments with them and TBH it doesn't matter where it goes as long as it never comes into contact with the fish bags.

So what goes inbetween the heat pad and the bag? Newspaper? Also, where can I buy those fish bags at?

I use newspaper as packing material.

I buy all my shipping supplies from www.kensfish.com. I use the 4" x 18" bags.
