Not a problem....
on May 28, 2007
I've used this product extensively. To date I have about 20 in long term storage.
Yes, my first couple of bags did refill with air. However, they were already packed up in boxes, and did not bust the box. At worst, the boxes gradually became a little round. So long as you keep the suitcase closed, the bag will not expand any further even if it loses its seal.
The secret to this product is that after you've carefully sealed the bag and sucked out the air, you need to make sure the gasket plugs up the little hole. If there is a wrinkle in the flat rubber plug, then you'll get slow leaks.
I have been moving myself overseas, and these bags have been a blessing so far as hauling lots of stuff in limited quantities of suitcases.
This product would get a five star rating from me, except for the high cost.
