This product seemed perfect at first. I was so excited, I actually told my mom it was the best thing I'd ever bought, in terms of storage/getting my room cleaned up. I have a baby coming in 8 weeks and with only one bedroom, needed to store a lot of stuff to make room. I used the jumbo bag for all my blankets and the large bag for all of my summer clothes. Yes, it quickly compacts. Yes, you can see where all your stuff is to find it easily. Yes, it saved me a ton of room. BUT...does it really conform to the shape of the box? Absolutely not. I tried to fit it in plastic bins and it wasn't happening. You would literally have to step on it, kneel on it and mold it with your hands to get it to that shape WHILE deflating it, and once that is accomplished, good luck getting it out!!!! My BIGGEST COMPLAINT: these bags don't hold air. While wonderfully compact at first, they expand by the first day or two. Which means it still saves space, but not half as much as you think it does at first. I even tested this theory by sucking the air out, sticking it in a HUGE plastic bin, and putting the top on. The next day, the top had popped off the bin, and the plastic bag was about 2 inches above the rim. I am pretty disappointed...worth buying the first time, but doubt that I will buy again.
