  • Space Bag= Expensive Garbage Bag

    Oct 23, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: If they worked, I can see where they would save space
    Cons: They don't work

    Summary: I usually don't buy the "As Seen On TV" stuff, just because it gives me the impression that it's junk. But, being limited on space while renovating a home, I thought I would try these to store some extra pillows, blankets and sheet sets from our camper, ... read more

  • Space Bags work!!

    Pros: -You can fit much more than anticipated
    -Compact Well
    -Save lots of Space!
    Cons: -Zipper comes off when bags are very full. Easily put back on
    -Thin Material

    Summary: I admit, I was a bit skeptical when we first ordered the Space Bags. I usually don't buy things from infomercials because, let's face it, typically it's all crap! Due to a move with limited space, however, my wife and I decided to try them. BOY was ... read more

    Pros: Extra large
    Cons: Cheap plastic and smell , not as advertized expensive for what you get. Not boxed

    Summary: First they show you all these nice boxes , like you get 2 of large etc. When you receive your product it's all mixed up , no boxes just bulk. They smell of plastic and of the one bag I used it maintained seal maybe two hours. Very cheap product for a lot ... read more

    Pros: Great, if they work.
    Cons: High rate of  failure.
    Tear extremely easily.

    Summary: We have quite a few of these, not because we have a lot of stuff, but because they have an unusually high rate of product failure.  We just had to throw away two of them yesterday.  One had a small hole, and the other one sliced open when using ... read more

  • Lousy product - tears and breaks easily

    May 13, 2010 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A good idea. But they are made too cheaply and shoddily.
    Cons: They are very VERY fragile. They break after 1 or 2 uses.

    Summary: These bags are an example of a good idea, not well executed. The problem is they are made too cheaply from materials that tear easily and break easily after only one or two uses, rendering the product useless.The seals break, the zippers ... read more

    Pros: They have great advertising!
    Cons: The bags don't stay deflated because they are too flimsy.

    Summary: I needed to store quilts and blankets for the summer, so I bought Space Bags directly on-line.  I spent about $50.00 on these bags, but that's not hard to do at around $5.00 each. I had a lot of winter clothing and bedding to ... read more

    Great concept.


    Does not work. Air leaks out. Don't waste your time or money.

    Summary: I bought 2 hanging space bags and 1 box with a large and extra large space back. The first hanging bag I stored winter coats. Trying to get the bag zipped locked is a real hassle. They give you a little white clip that keeps falling off. I realized that ... read more

  • Not very durable.

    Pros: When they work, they minimize space.
    Cons: They leak and are not very durable.

    Summary: These are good when they work, but for the most part they leak too much to be of good use. I purchased a set from Costco (so I have many). At first they worked, compacting blankets and such. They are good at minimizing space for as long as they work. ... read more

    Pros: saves space, gets pack rats to look through and donate/throw out.
    Cons: isnt as flat as they lead you to believe

    Summary: Reading reviews of this online, I'm finding a lot of people are either impatient, lazy, or dont follow directions properly and with common sense. I saw these on TV a few years ago, thought it was a good idea considering I have a small bedroom and ... read more

  • Maybe They Work In Space?

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: A great time waster - if you need one!
    Cons: Doesn't seal, doesn't stack, doesn't save space.

    Summary: What a terrible product! The zipper seal was a joke – the plastic “zip” part kept falling off; I spent most of my time trying to zip it, and when I succeeded, it only held a few minutes. And, yes, I did leave the proper amount of space at the top. The ... read more

    Pros: When you get lucky with one that completely works its awesome!
    Cons: 70-90% failure rate of bags

    Summary: Well I got my spacebag order today 25 days after my order was placed after paying 15.90 for shipping, was it being shipped from china? The box was rather large for the items inside. After laying out the items I got I was pretty stoked to start packing ... read more

    Pros: None
    Cons: They didn't hold a vacuum no matter what I did.

    Summary: Simply put don't buy these! My experience was reinforced by the previous reviewer’s experience. So I did not attempt to gain help from the distributor. I just returned them to "The Container Store" where I bought them. I did experiment to ... read more

    Pros: it is a good idea but needs serious revamping
    Cons: It is a useless item

    Summary: I really bought into the TV ad showing how the space bags work.  I thought, "how could they fail?"  Well, they do--and they fail badly.  They aren't airtight.  Not sure where the bag leaks, but I do know the "zipper seal" is quite ... read more

    Pros: The ease which the representative sold me after my inquiry.
    Cons: cheap plastic
    poor seam construction

    Summary: Every space bag that I have used has had a seam leak and lost pressure.  I had to utilize packing tape each seam to get a seal.  One of the jumbo bags that I sealed burst across the body.  It is now a piece of recycle plastic rather than ... read more

    Pros: It would be a great idea if it worked.
    Cons: It does NOT work! The bags themselves leak.

    Summary: I have been lured into trying these a couple of times, because it seems like such a great idea. It MAY be a great idea, but every single batg I have - bar none - has leaked. Some quickly, some slowly, but absolutely every one has leaked.By the way, I ... read more

    Pros: I have no pros for this product as I can't use them anylonger.
    Cons: Doesn't hold airtight as described.

    Summary: Just saw another tv add and reminded me I need to give this comment.  Purchased these bags a couple years ago. . I used the vacumm to take air out of bag and that worked great.  Two weeks later I look in the closet and all the air was ... read more

    Pros: None
    Cons: Waste of money

    Summary: Only half of about 10 bags worked the first time, had to try several times. Laid folded items in bag but bags are lumpy when air is withdrawn. Then they all slowly filled back with air. So much for saving space. Returned every one of them in favor of the ... read more

    Pros: None
    Cons: Price, Quality, Do not hold vacuum

    Summary: The space bags do not work. The seal does not hold and the bags are thin enough that they tear near the vacuum port. The zip-lock is of poor quality and does not hold the vacuum. Do not waste your money on these bags. ... read more

    Pros: If they worked they'd be useful.
    Cons: Cheap plastic
    High price for such low quality material
    Breaks easily
    Does not actually save any space.

    Summary: These bags are supposed to take air pressure changes, so why aren't they more durable? I just bought one from the store, and was kind of amazed by how cheap the plastic was. These are supposed to be reusable, but every part of them looks more like ... read more
