I only use drawstrings - I hate the others, like the handle tie and the quick tie. However, Glad has changed the drawstring bags so that they grip tightly around the trash can. I have some issues with my fingers, neuropathy being one of them, and I just can't loosen the drawstring, to burp the bag or remove the trash, etc. It's way too tight.
Their TV ad shows a woman throwing garbage away in a trash can with a bag that has an ordinary drawstring, and it shows how the bag comes away from the sides and all of the trash goes into the can intead of the bag. In comparison, their new gripping drawstring holds so it doesn't come away when dumping heavy garbage. When I was little, the ad was identical except that the woman threw her trash away using a bag without drawstrings and the comparison was a bag WITH drawstrings. Interesting. If the regular drawstring bags could hold heavy garbage back then, why can't they now?
I wouldn't mind if they kept making the bags with regular drawstrings, but that's not the case. They have replaced them with the gripping drawstrings. So, I switched to Hefty. Even though they were the first with the gripping drawstrings, they still make the bags with regular drawstrings. For now, anyway.
I normally purchase these at the local W**Mart store, and I decided to see if it would be possible to purchase them here on Amazon, hoping both to save money as well as make it more convenient to re-supply when we run out.
To begin with, it turns out that purchasing a product like this on Amazon requires a bit of a research project.
First you need to sort through the various styles of kitchen trash bags offered by Glad - reinforced, not reinforced, or "ForceFlex" extra strong reinforced; with drawstrings or not; with or without odor shield - to make sure that you are looking at the product that is equivalent to what you normally buy. This version is the reinforced bag so it is stronger than the 'normal' version, and it has drawstrings which make it very easy to tie off the bags. This is a 13 gal bag, 2 ft x 2 ft 3 3/8 inch x 0.95 ml (top) / 0.78 ml thickness (body). Again, it is not the reinforced "ForceFlex" variation, and it does not have the odor control.
Amazon offers this product packaged in various quantities, from 22 to 100 count, just as most large supermarkets offer. Actually, Amazon doesn't offer the largest size that we normally buy - 120 count. But they have plenty of other choices.
The question is really - what is the most cost-effective? Which one is the least cost per-bag, and does it compare with the local discount supermarket?Read more ›
The only reason we gave them 3 stars, instead of 5, (which we would have a couple years ago), is these last few boxes have bags that are just super thin. We have now had a bag rip every 8-10 bags. This is not acceptable at all. I have never had that happen with before with Glad and we are very disappointed.

It may be the type of trashcan we have, but we find these bags are constantly ripping near the top. Not as strong as we had hoped for.Published on December 4, 2013 by Piper's Mumma

Lately,the drawstring pulls right out of the bag,or there is a tear at the top,which tears further upon use. I'll b e shopping for another brand.Published on September 24, 2011 by Gary C
