I was looking for trash bags that I could buy online to help save time (and possibly money) because the kind I normally get is only available in the store (Walmart's GV 78 count drawstring). The Good: Despite not having drawstrings, the bags still remain snug in the trash can throughout the entire use. (Not all flap style bags do so I was pleasantly surprised it lived up to the claim!) For the similar quantity these bags were cheaper and I was able to buy online. The Bad: The first two bags out of the box were ripped at the seam (fortunately in different places), so I double bagged them to use. A third bag was ripped right out of the box, but it was very high up, so it was still usable, but irritating. (I'm only about a quarter through the box.) Also, the bags are noticeably thinner than GV bags. On my second use the bag ripped at the bottom after I took it out of the can. It was an average to only slightly heavy load. (In comparison I've been using GV for about 5 years now & have never had a ripped bag out of the box & only had them rip twice when they were MUCH heavier loads.) I don't have the time to go through the hassle of returning these, so I'm double bagging these for average loads & single bagging for really light, bulky loads. In short, what a waste. Sorry Hefty, but these were whimpy! When these are gone I'm happily shelling out the extra to buy the GV bags with drawstrings because the lack of frustration or needing to double bag makes them a better value. I just hope they don't ever change their quality!
