I decided to try these out when I saw them on the shelf in stores. The Ziploc brand and large size made my decision to purchase easy. Once I got around to using them, I pulled them out of the box and one of them had the zipper part hanging off the bag, just held in by the ends. Well, there goes that bag I figured manufacturing defects can happen to any company, no one is perfect so no big deal. I try the next bag and as I go to open it the zipper comes detached from the bag as well. Now disappointment sets in. At least the last two bags work so far, but it really makes me wonder how long they will even last.
I cannot recommend these based upon my experience. I'm sure in time they will have the issue resolved but it's just unusual for a company with the reputation that Ziploc has to release a product that is defective. Now that I see the other reviews I know that my bags weren't the only ones defective, I wish I had seen the reviews before buying these. Well, I'll try contacting them to see what happens. Hopefully they have this all sorted out soon since the bag itself is actually very high quality material it seems, very tough and not the same as the small food storage ones. This is made out of a plastic that won't stretch or rip easily.
