H179452 - Space Bag To Go 12 Piece Travel Set
Save space to go!
These are awesome for the fact that you do not need a vaccum. The downfall in my opinion is they are not big enough. Plus you have to be careful there is nothing sharp near them in your suitcase. Overall a good product.
Still OK but Used to be Better
I've used Space Bags for years. Eventually they can lose their seal or sustain damage. So when I needed more, I was glad to see this nice combo pack that was a better value of quantity and sizes than was available through direct purchase or at a local home store. Unfortunately, today's Space Bags are not as good as older models.The first one I tested didn't hold its vacuum seal, and air re-expanded the bag within two hours. The plastic material is thinner than it used to be, thus more susceptible to punctures and tears (which can be repaired with duct or other tapes). The new valve seal is more likely to allow air back into the bag than the older design--I put a "snuggie" type blanket into the medium-sized bag and it self-expanded in about 6 hours. Two more bags in my luggage lasted a bit longer--about 9 hours--before expanding. I'm keeping this purchase, but will look into the brand offered by a well-known outdoor/luggage/packing-systems maker that seems tougher and perhaps has more stable seals.
The Bags Let Air Back In
This bags appeared great initially. We sealed and stored several blankets and pillows last winter. But during spring cleaning this weekend we discovered that all of them had leaked air back into them. Useless as a long-term storage solution.
Love these bags! My son and I just traveled to London, Paris and Italy. We used these bags for all our clothes and it was peperfect; We had so much extra room for all our souvenirs. I would recommend these to anyone. And after two weeks of travel they are in still great shape for reuse. As someone else mentioned, there are two bags way too big to use for travel, but perfect for blankets!
Perfect sizes for travel or home!
I purchased this set for a trip and they were perfect! As the other reviewer mentioned, there are two bags in this set which are a bit too large for travel but the rest are the perfect size. I plan to use the 2 largest bags to store some blankets and pillows and I'll be saving the others for my next trip. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase this set, they are an extraordinary value and the bags are great quality as well!
I was going on a trip to see my daughter and thought that these would be perfect. They were too big. I wish that they were smaller and then they would be perfect.
