6 x Medium Storage Bags, 4 x Large Storage 1 x Jumbo Storage Bags, 1 x Space Saver Roll-up Bags, 2 x Traveler Space Saver Roll-up Bags- (14 x Pack Seal Compressed Vacuum Space Saver Storage Bags) By Storage’s Finest
My first impression: I saw oversized crinkly Ziploc bags with a spout. My next impression was . . . wow. We get 14 bags. I haven’t even used them all, and already these Vacuum Space Saver Storage Bags has made an impact on my closet space.
Three of the bags are roll-up bags:
* 1 traveler space saver bag – 16″ x 23″
* 2 space saver bags – 19 ½” x 27″ (fits one standard pillow)
Eleven bags are vacuum storage bags:
* 6 medium storage bags – 21″ x 33″
* 4 large storage bags – 26″ x 39″ (fit a twin size down comforter)
* 1 jumbo bag – 34″ x 47″ (fits 2 king size pillows and a plush throw)
The vacuum seal bags require a vacuum cleaner. I tried it at first with an air pump. It has a vacuum function, but it wasn’t strong enough. The vacuum cleaner did what the pump could not, making my comforters flat as pancakes.
The roll-up bags do not require a vacuum. That makes them more convenient for travel, since we don’t need to hunt for a vacuum to repack our bags for home. To remove air from roll-up bags, roll them up and the air escapes from the end of the bag through a maze of air tubes that expand when air is pushed through. At least the bags are supposed to be built that way. Instead, I found the tubes collapsed too easily and it was difficult to squeeze air out. Might as well open up a small space on the zip lock end, roll the air out and zip it when done.
Speaking of zip lock, those sliding locks come off too easily. They’re basically there to press on the zipper to close, so I suppose we could resort to that if we had to. I’d rather not have to.
