I had some similar type bags several years ago but found the press seal kept coming undone ,so when I saw that these new type ones had a zip press seal I thought I would give them a go. I have recently moved and as I have downsized I have a lot of surplus bedding that I wished to store. The bags seem to be very good quality but to get the press zipper to seal takes a lot of pressure and a few tries of moving the clip back and forth until it seals.All sealed up and stored but after just a week the air is getting into some of the bags already. I wish now I had bought just one pack of 4 first to test them out and not 2 packs .

These bags do not work. I have filled the bags following the instructions on the packaging and within 15 minutes the bag has re-inflated to normal size. The seal is the same as a sandwich bag and the clip that is supposed to ensure an air-tight seal is just a piece of loose plastic that you run along it. These are very cheap so I think you get what you pay for: 4 large plastic bags with a useless nozzle on the side.

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.

Was impressed when parcel arrived - bags looked to be the business after a previously ill advised purchase of a similar set of space bags...how wrong could I have been?!
2 developed a small tear when first used, 1 has since expanded (after less than 2 weeks) whilst only one appears to still function as intended...25% success rate!
Oh, and forgot to say how rubbish the customer support was - unable to supply replacement goods, only advised to return goods and try to re-purchase the same ones (which of course were unavailable - probably due to the poor reports of their usability)
Seriously beginning to wonder if any of these space bags are really any use?

First really bad experience of a purchase on Amazon...hope it's the last!
Will surely be my last attempt to buy space-saving bags.

The plus side - the bags are extremely large and providing you have patience and make sure the seal is good they keep the air out.
On a minus side - because the 'zip' seal runs down the long side, making a good seal can be tricky.

I would buy these again because their size and the fact that once they are closed you usually dont need to open them for some time, out weighs the trickyness of the seal. I bought some from Argos some time ago and the seal was easier as it was on the short side of the bag. But the were only half the size, and twice the price. No Brainer.

All four bags inflated within minutes of vacuuming them. The valve in at least one of them was faulty. In the others, it is possible that the plastic was punctured, as it is a rather rigid type of plastic. Total waste of money.

These are the first of this sort of thing that I've tried but they've worked very well. The xxl size is big enough for a couple of duvets and they really do reduce down to a very flat. They boast a blue gizmo that helps seal them before you suck the air out - I found this of limited use as it kept falling off, but it's very easy to seal the bags without it. It's worth doing this in a quiet room so you can listen for air escaping after you've suctioned the bag and quickly press the seal down to seal it again. As long as you have sealed it properly it stays sealed for ages.
