Default How good would this be?

http://corsair.com/products/survivor.aspx

How good would this be for backing up important documents and such? Would it really be waterproof/Shock proof and w/e and would it also be fire proof?

Looks like it would be, I've never seen that before so I don't know what it would be like.

Wow... I'm sure it would work fine and obviously its shock resistant and water proof but are you really going to be using it as a hammer or going scuba diving with it in your pocket? A normal flash drive would have equal ability to back up documents, so is this really necessary? But, if you think you need these features, yeah it should be fine.

Not Really,But it would be nice knowing that i have all my important documents backed up onto a flash drive,that if we have an earthquake,Cyclone,fire,flood or a natural disaster that all my stuff is safe and secure.

and then you lose it b/c it's so small. Great that it has all those features, but if you lose it, the features are worthless and your data is gone...

Slap it in a Pelican case if you're really not sure.
