      I really like the vacuum seal bags more than the travel bags (but I guess they have their purpose). They really do work like you see on TV. Filling the bags can be a little challenging if you are trying to really fill them up, but they do work and save space. I have found them to be fairly durable. Although I had one bag that "broke" at the base, I think sunlight ages and stiffens the bag, as this bag was in direct sunlight in the house for several months, so try to keep them out of long term sunlight.

      I had organized a couple of closets with these, though they are quite expensive for what you get. I filled them only to the line, and had to be very careful the zipper seal was fully sealed. I ended up with about a 90% failure -- some immediate, they just never sealed well. Some ruptured pretty quickly since there'd no "give" to the plastic. The "travel" ones that don't require a vacuum either ruptured in the process of pushing out the air; the others didn't maintain their vacuum over time. The largest ones were unweildy and difficult to fill, and by the time they were filled, sealed, vacuumed and stored; they had either ruptured, lost their seal, or finally took in air from the really flimsy valve over time. I've only ever had one of these that held a vacuum over time, and when I emptied, refilled and tried to reuse it, it ruptured. They would be a great idea if they weren't so flimsy and expensive. It's frustrating to spend a couple of hours getting organized into these things only to have almost all fail.

      Waste of Money - doesn't stay deflated

            As others have said - these DO NOT WORK. I followed the directions carefully, did not overfill, sealed the bag carefully, sucked out all the air and the failure was noticable within a couple of hours. No space saving at all. But if you want to pay a fortune for a big zip lock bag - have at it.

                I had to give it at least one star but it doesn't even deserve that! These have no redeeming value whatsoever. They don't keep the vacuum seal. You might as well just put your items in a large Zip Lock Bag and suck the air out. You'd get a better value for your money. These are absolute junk. Don't waste your money!

                        I bought these with the hope that I would be able to store my quilts and winter clothes in less storage space. I deflated them several times as instructed and each time they started leaking and reinflating within 15-30 minutes. Waste of money! Ended up throwing them out!

                          The zipper on the biggest bag broke right away. It was not even full. The other two bags let in air, and don't hold that much to begin with. I should have read the reviews. I learned my lesson. I will next time, on everything.

                          I am so disappointed in these "great" bags. Spent good money, down the drain. After using them they worked ok. Went to get my stuff out, and reuse, one of them broke, the zip part. I am very careful with things, this was flimsy. Then one by one different things broke or wouldn't stay sealed, etc. I should have just bought the giant plastic zip-lock bags and been done with it.

                          They work! You just have to make sure and take your time with the zip lock. And DO NOT overfill or it won't stay. Otherwise, they were great!

                          These are the worst bags ever. The air comes right back in, and they do not close correctly. A real piece of junk!
