Product Description

Mylar bags combined with oxygen absorbers stored in a rigid container have been shown to be the ideal way to store dehydrated goods for long-term storage. Mylar bags protect your food investment from the effects of oxygen, moisture contamination, and light penetration. These Mylar bags are 4.5 mils, and provides excellent long-term storage of dehydrated foods and has an FDA approved sealant layer. Mylar®, a Polyester bag is ideal for a broad array of applications in the electrical, electronics, magnetic media, industrial specialty, imaging and graphics, and packaging markets. These Mylar bags can be heat sealed with a standard clothes iron on the wool setting or a hair straightener. Add your dehydrated food to the Mylar bag, place appropriate number of oxygen absorber on top (2000cc-2500cc), and push out as much residual air as possible before sealing the bag. All Mylar bags should be placed in a rigid container such as a plastic bucket to protect the integrity of the bag as well as to avoid rodents and bug infestation. Unused oxygen absorbers can be resealed in their original bag, placed in a mason jar, or heat sealed in a Mylar bag.

This product was folded lightly into a small enveloped when it was shipped. At virtually all of the creases, there are small pin size holes...they are not airtight. You can test this by inserting a flashlight into the bag in a dark room. Disappointed. I have called the company and hoping for a favorable response and resolution.

These are nice bags. The only problem is that they come folded. Because they tend to crease it weakens the bag causing it to leak air after it is sealed. The bags should have been rolled . This is very important as folding defeats the purpose of the bag. I never dreamed anyone would fold them in the first place or I would have checked before ordering.

We used the first batch of these to put up quick oats in 5 gallon buckets. After putting the oats in the mylar bag within the bucket, we tossed in some o2 absorbers and we sealed most of the opening, leaving enough space to use the tube of our vacuum sealer to get as much air out as possible. The results? Perfect tightly packed food within the bags. I'm happy and came back to order more.

The bugs will not chew through these bags and I use my bag sealer to seal them, although you can use an iron on med to low heat. Throw an anti oxygen tablet in each bag (tablets are all different sizes) and nothing will survive inside the bag either. Nothing that crawls that is.

These bags are exactly what they are suppose to be. I am using them for long term rice storage. Put in 6 gallon buckets from Emergency Essentials, once in bucket bag holds between 40-45 lbs of rice. Would recommend.

Just an fyi - these are good quality bags but they shorted us one, so we only received nine. That matters when you only needed ten. Now I have to buy more someplace else.

What a shame. I ignored a couple of warnings from others and bought these bags. I recently removed one from the package, went into a dark room and shined a light into the bag. Lots of little pin pricks of light shining through the bags. Totally defeats the purpose of the purchase, I would think. total bummer. Now I'll pay 1/2 the cost of the item to ship it back. Next time, I'll get the 7 mil bags from LDS.

I couldn't get the bags to vacuum seal and after reading other reviewers comments, I found out the reason why. The bags were folded in order to fit the shipping bag. I held one up to the light and confirmed that there were holes all along the fold lines. If they do not block air or moisture, they are not good for long term storage.
