I realise you can buy many cheaper bags than these, but if (and only if) you have a simplehuman bin, these are just so perfect they are a joy to use.
They come in a range of sizes (make sure you choose the right one for your bin model) and fit PERFECTLY. No more messing about with liners that don't quite stretch over the lip of the bin, or fall off into the bin as soon as you load them with rubbish.
When the bin is full, simple pull on the little ribbon which is exposed at either side of the top. The top of the bag pulls together easily, closing up the top of the bag ready for a simple knot.
I have used many packs of these liners, and have never, ever had one split on me.
I know they are only bin liners, and this might seem a bit "sad", but it gives me genuine pleasure to use something that is reliable and just 'works'.

Really happy with this purchase.
Although much more expensive than own brand bags in the supermarket I think these bags end up working out about the same cost as we've bought so few. A box of 50 bags has lasted us a year (2 adults). We use one a week, and because the bags are really really strong you can pack a lot of waste in them. In fact they can be so heavy but compact that I can struggle to lift them to put them in the outside bin.
Plus it is nice that they fit the bin so well and there is no bagging hanging out the bin, which is especially tempting for a dog to tug on!
Better bags than most of the other manufacturers. These are thick enough not to tear when you pull them out, they've never torn when pulling them out or even when heavily loaded and they've never leaked once in over a year.
The simplehuman bags are made with the same care and quality as the bins themselves and I love that in our bins, they are actually stored in a pocket designed to take them that has an opening inside the bin cavity and you just pull one out when changing. The packets also have a low warning feature when they are nearly finished so you know to order some.
If you haven't used simplehuman before, then I can highly recommend. I've attached a pic that shows our two bins.

I purchased the genuine bags, Pricey!! As we are a family, these were quickly used up. I tried some of Asda flat top refuse bags, these are transparent and discrete, and work very well with this bin. The Asda bags are only £2.50 for 20, which is one third of the price of Simple human ones. The 70 litre size are ideal, if you tuck them into the corners at the bottom of the bin. The Asda bags are FLAT TOP, REFUSE SACKS IN ROLLS OF 20, IN TRANSPARENT OR WHITE., save yourself a fortune over a period of a year..........
