I am a soldier. I bought the bags to shrink stuff to fit in my Army duffle bag and my ruck sack. After a couple uses the zippers broke. I was able to use them again one more time by duck tapping the zippers, but after removing the duck tape the bag part got torn. These could be better if the plastic were a bit thicker. Great concept poor construction.
I couldn't believe what a small space a 10lb. Goose Down comforter now takes up. And they work great for other bulky things too, like stuffed animals. And by the way, to the folks who had problems with the bags refilling with air I would suggest taking a look at the little rubber seal that you put over the vacuum opening before screwing the lid on, if that seal isn't placed properly, I can see how the bags could refill with air. Either that or the little slider may have jumped off its track or you may be overfilling the bags to begin with.
I purchased this product to condense clothing, towels, blankets and pillows when moving and couldn't be more pleased. I was able to put a lot more in each bag then I anticipated, load them in moving truck and they took up so little space. I highly recommend this product!
i had been waiting for a good deal on this product for literally years - i thought it would be the solution to all my closet storage issues - so i bought the value pack and took it home and loaded it up (per the instructions on the box, bag and internet) and the next morning one of the bags had totally reinflated - so i took it back to Walmart and they let me exchange it for another box, thinking it was just a dud bag - i tried again and all seemed fine but 2 days later the bag reinflated itself, along with 2 other bags (i hadn't touched them at all, they were just lying flat in my closet) - so i took them back to Walmart and got my money back (plus tax!) - i am very disappointed - i'm using the same technique with a garbage bag and frankly it's working a lot better - thanks Walmart for your 90 day no hassle exchange and refund policy! i'm going to shop here more often
I was hesitant about this product because I thought it was just a gimmick. So I ordered some and to my surprise they are great. I was surprised at how much I could fit into one bag and get it so flat. I even had to reopen the bag to add more to the bag and it resealed great. I love the product so much I bought more.
I use these bags on a regular basis and have for years. They're very good for storing clothes each season,which is exactly why I bought these. The only complaint that I have regarding this purchase is the legnth of time it took to get them. Site to store is fine if you're not on a time line, otherwise, spend the extra if you need something before three weeks. Also, the stopper on the bags no longer require a lid, it's built in.. the downfall to that is, it doesn't hold air long enough.
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.)
I have a lot of t-shirts that are new but are not right for every time of year so each spring and fall I need to switch from short sleeves to long sleeves and back again. HEFTY BIG BAGS are o.k. but not really what I wanted. Only 2 or 3 shirts in each one. With the space bags I can get 6 or 8 shirts in each bag and then reduce the size to almost nothing. IT'S GREAT. I haven't had a chance to use the bigger bags yet but I've big plans for them. These bags are one of the best investments I've made in a while.
All these bags for only 10.99 online, you can't beat it.
These bags really work. The only thing is that when you vacuum out of the air, the bag isn't flat as pictured but bumpy. The product works, just doesn't look as nice.
I've never left a review because I've always been very pleased with the price and performance of items I've purchased; however, these bags are a totally different story. They are a good size and easy to fill with your items and suck the air out with your vacuum; however, no matter what I try the air always comes back in. I could even hear the air returning into the bag (kind of like when you slowly let air out of a balloon#. I followed the directions to the letter so I thought maybe the first bag was faulty, but, no, every bag, every size that I tried, the air seeps back in...they are useless... within 24 hours #sometimes sooner) all the air returns and your left with gigantic ziplock bags of your clothes, blankets, whatever bursting off the shelves. Ridiculous. I'm glad that #per some previous reviews) they seem to work for other people...maybe they glued the 'zipper' seams closed after they filled them, but I won't be purchasing these again. Thanks.
I bought these bags because with a family of 6, there's always "stuff" in large amounts; blankets, winter clothes, summer clothes, comforter sets, etc. These bags serve their purpose well ! In an Ex. Lg., I was able to fit my 2 toddlers' entire summer wardrobe with ease and it is so compact that it can neatly fit in a single, small, dresser drawer!! In the Jumbo sz., I put a very large, thick, TN Vols queen size bed comforter and 2 large throws and they now take up virtually no room ! I'm definitely getting more of these bags because they simply work!
I purchased these today and was so excited to try them out because we have a baby on the way and need more closet space. Out of the six, the first two bags I used fit quite a bit of shirts but on both, the zippers broke off immediately. I followed the directions and did not overstuff the bags and the zippers still broke! They definitely do not lay flat like the pictures unless you put a very minimal amount of clothing in, they are very lumpy, but they do suck all the air out and condense well. I'm not completely satisfied, but not completely disappointed either because they did condense the clothing as they are supposed to. Wish the zippers were a bit more durable though, I now have to see if they'll go back on somehow.
I have tried these "bags" several times over the years, each time hoping the product would have been improved. Well, it has not. These bags do not perform as promised. Sure they hold the vacuum at first, but it always leaks back in. If you do not have your items packed away in a tight space, you will be out of luck and continually sealing these bags again and again and again with lessening results. I admit they are a good idea and I wish they worked, but they don't. I will never buy these again.
The idea of the space bags is great. However, the product does not meet the expectations at all. I just purchased a box with 6 different sizes and only the "jumbo" and "extra large" would be big enough to fit average items. I am packing to move to another state and I would have to invest a lot of money to pack all my towells and blankets in space bags. But the worst part is that the bags don't hold the vacum not even for 24h! Three of six bags that I bought were back to the initial size within few hours. I feel so stupid for buying these bad quality overpriced bags...
Was very excited to use these to help makes some more space in my apartment first bag i used had a hole in it and I returned them right away nig worth the time and frustration rather just pack stuff in boxes and totes
Bought these for my trip to California. I wanted to save space and pack as much as I could, as I was staying a few weeks. These worked great. All you need to do is hook up a vacuum and it sucks the air right out! The only bad thing about these is the large sized bags are HUGE. And once the air is out of the bags, its hard to fold the bags down to fit into a smaller type bag. I really hard to do some stuffing in the bags to get the large ones to fit. Overall, satisfied and would use these again for storage!
So far, 4 of the six do not hold. They let air in and then after you have stored them in a smaller space, they fill the space out and you can't get them out very easily. Very disappointed. Don't feel like sending them back.
They work great I have about 50 storage bags
With blankets to sheets and clothes in my storage bags.
I do not like the jumbo size to hard to pick up for me, too
heavy for me to pick up even with the air out of the bag.
I like using the large and the medium bags.
These bags are okay when they work only 4 out of the six bags I purchased worked the air wont stay in and i exchanged them twice & still got defective ones i guess,so I just returned them all together but,the idea and use of the bag is GREAT! when it works properly.
I have heard reviews all over the place for these bags, great idea but mine leaked air. I got me thru a 3 hour flight to San Diego from Dallas I just don't think the seal is designed very well. I will say I used a very high power shop vac which could have some bearing but for me it's a NO GO.
