The only space bags worth buying!
on November 2, 2009
The first time I bought spacebags I went to the spacebag website and got a whole kit which included three (3) totes: 2 jumbos and 1 under-the-bed. The regular spacebags are not good, sometimes they hold the vacuum and most times they don't. I still use them though, mostly to separate different sizes of baby and toddler clothes and then I put then inside the totes. The totes are great. Since that first purchase I have gotten more. I own seven(7) of them and they have never fail me so far. I read some reviews about the handles ripping of, that has not happened to me and believe me I pack mine full, and they are always heavy. Don't waste your money on regular spacebags, get the totes instead and you wont be sorry. Keep in mind that when packing regular clothes as they are not bulky as sweaters you won't be able to fit as much, as there is not much air to suck out. But your clothes will come out nice and clean and fresh smelling. In the case of wool sweaters they will be protected from moths. I used to keep my sweaters in an unused drawer and they all got holes from moths. Spacebags totes are a great investment!
Some people wrote that they can't get a square shape once vacuumed. Don't expect to get a perfect boxy shape like the adds. It simply is very hard. Some of you clothes may be some bulky than others and therefore will compress less or more
