    ITW Space Bag BRS-9212ZG Travel Roll Bags: 4 Pack – 2 Carry-On and 2 Suitcase Size Bags

    I bought the Space Bag Travel Roll Bags four years ago when I moved to Texas from Florida. I have since moved four times and for each move these bags were invaluable. I felt compelled to write because someone complained they were impossible to get the air out of them. I follow the instructions on the bags and don’t overfill them, and run the plastic tab over the opening until it’s really sealed. Then I roll them and sit/kneel on them on a rug or similar surface to get resistance…and I’m no Amazonian woman, but I can get the air out of them. They’re actually a lot of fun to own. I’ve used them while camping and air traveling too. I watched my suitcase from the plane get completely soaked, but I wasn’t worried about my clothes b/c I knew they’d be dry, and they were (it was everything else in the bag that was soaked). So… in short, I recommend them.

    UPDATE: Nov. 2012
    I can’t believe I’ve had some of these bags for 8 years now! At this point there has been some attrition and maybe 2 or 3 bags were sent to the recycling bin. But, some of them are still in use today! Other from that, I patched 2 or 3 of the bags with clear packing tape and they still work. Others are completely in working order no patches or anything. My mom gave me one of her new ones recently and I’m really impressed with the improvements in the zip area. In the past you had to push down hard on the zip tab to really get a seal.

    I have traveled to Europe, Guatemala, and around the USA with these bags and they work! It sometimes takes a bit of knack to get them to release the air as you roll them up. You also have to not cram them totally full before you roll them up as this will block the exhaust valve.

    Not only do the Space Bags save space, they help me to organize my clothes and keep clothes from wrinkling. I always pack a couple of extra Space Bags to cover any purchases I make while traveling.

    The only downside to these bags is they are a bit thin and sometimes get a hole in them after a few trips. All in all, the Space Bags are great!I never pack a suitcase without them.
