lipo bag - silicone coated fiberglass

The Liposack is made of this material. Are there any other silicone coated fiberglass lipo bags that compare to Liposack but cost less?

maybe you should forget the bags and go with this:

An old unused metal tool box works just as good.

I have two genuine LipoSack's and they are the only bag I use and trust.

Maybe, but we aren't aware of ones that have been tested in front of a camera and proven.

Try rolling that up and tossing it your field box.

The cinderblocks are fine as long as you have no intention of moving them around.
The LipoSack was designed to be convenient but still provide good thermal management.

Except for the fact that they cost anywhere from $35-$80 then you get to do the sewing. Not a great cost savings there.

Some fire blankets are rather lightweight compared to liposacks. I assume they work perfectly well for smothering general flames but they might not be so good at containing the so-called "vent with flame" that Lipos occasionally do.

(What the industry calls "vent with flame" often seems more like "rocket propulsion" to me.)

They do, I tested this myself. I placed an old LiPo on dry sticks like starting a campfire, covered everything with a fire blanket, and charged the LiPo to like 8V/cell until it exploded. Flames were contained, did not leak out, and the fire went out altogether after a very short time.
Since then, I cover my Lipos with a fire blanket during charging and when I am generally too lazy to store them away safely.
