Big spacesavers for small money.
on 4 October 2011
Nice extra big bags that work as good as the smaller types of this family.
I used this XXL size to conserve our leather motor suits that are to wide and rigid to fit in the smaller sizes.
I can understand some people might have problems sealing this bags, but that's probably only because they expect the sealing to act as a normal zipper.
However, when you press the 'closing tool' between your fingers while you move it from one side to the other you will find that it wil seal perfectly without any problem.
The 'suction valve' was no perfect fit to my vacuum cleaner, but an airtight fit is not neccessary at all. If you have a decent vacuum cleaner it will suck the bag vacuum without any effort on your side, even when the fit is not optimal.
The valve closes automatically after removing the suction, but there is an extra screw to keep it 100% closed. Nice!
Only 'complain' is that the valve construction including closing-screw is relatively high which can be inconvenient when you want to stack your nice vacuum-flat packages on to each other. But for this price I take this little inconvience for granted.
