I would give this a one star if all of them had ripped. Alas, 2 of 6 ripped. I'll start off by saying this: that flat look? Hahaha, you won't get anywhere near that. It'll look like a piece of meet in a vacuum bag when you're done sucking all the air out. It'll feel heavier and be solid as a brick. But flat? No where near. When it shows you putting a few comforters and blankets in the biggest bag.. how?? The width and length of them are greater than the bag so you have to jump through hoops to even get a few in. By then, you're at the "STOP" line and shouldn't go on. Comforters do vacuum flatter but not flat, at all, like the pictures. The ripping is the worst. I was just putting some stuffed animals in one and it ripped right underneath the seal. I tried taping it back (went through a great deal of tape) and no luck. It's ruined. Pull out the next one. Same size (smallest of the 6) and start putting stuff in it. Rips. Clean rip right beneath the seam that goes on forever. Again, tape doesn't help. Had to trash the two. The seal is very basic. No frills or anything. Think double sealed ziplock bag with a white, seal-sealer slider that continues to come off (it's easy to put back but it does come off.) If you nudge the seal the wrong way, it does come open and you have to reseal/de-air it. Also, because of the rips, I imagine the actual plastic isn't connected very well to the seal/seams. They should try to improve this. After having these in storage for 2 weeks, I notice the biggest one is coming back to life. Air seeps slowly back in but I imagine, within a few days or a week, that it'll need to have that air sucked out again. Shame. I'm moving and these have to fit in my car. I imagine it'd be better just to stuff the clothes in, alone, and use these for comforters and pillows only (more air.)
