I need to store my external Hard drives securely and was wondering if there were any reputable places on the internet or stores across America that may carry good anti static bags for protection and storage for my external hard drive. I want to store it so I can recover data from it later on.

I am a big fan of DigiKey: http://www.digikey.com/product-search/en/static-control-esd-clean-room-products/static-control-shielding-bags-materials/2228416?k=static%20bag

Note: you should use two bags, On the outside use a static shielding bag - This prevents static from crossing over it, usually the silver bags

On the inside use Static Dissipative(antistaic) this prevents static from being generated on the inside of the bag these are the blue or green bags typically...
