I found in the in-house magazine of the courier company DHL, april
1993, this article:

   "Boxing clever...(blah blah blah)...A new product from the AIR BOX is designed to give maximum
    protection to even the most fragile items, wrapping them in a
    protective barrier of air, suspending them to protect them from
    shock, vibration and breakage....products of almost any shape or
    finish... Made from a twin layer of plastic.

    For more information contact Hi-Lux products on 01905 774 275"

That is in England, so call  +44 1905 774 275.

It seems to be two balloons with the object sandwiched between - in
the picture it *looks* pretty good but I haven't used it or seen it in
the flesh. The example object was a camera.
