Bag material not strong enough”
I've had 2 from this series now and both have ripped where the straps join the main bag. The first one happened to my husband and I put it down to him being a bit heavy handed, but the second has just given up as I lifted it. While the handle area is reinforced the fabric just tears where it joins. It also isn't a small tear, as soon as there's a slight hole, the fabric tears as easily as paper along the grain. I'll be making a replacement bag out of proper canvas to protect the plastic compression sack.

I purchased three of these vacuum bags to assist with storage. I was not sure after reading some of the reviews, which were mixed. Unfortunately, I have encountered a problem with these bags - one of the bags is perfect and has done exactly as described. However, the two other bags are useless - the zip has broken on one and the other one 'inflates'. Maybe I have just been unlucky, but a lot of money for something of this quality - expected better from Lakeland.

Excellent Tote Storage Bags”
by Mrs Everett
These are brilliant. I bought two. (1) Took a king size duvet and 6 pillows easily. (2nd) One double bed feather topper and 2 pillows with still some room to spare. I have tried other spacebags which have not been as easy to use or store as these. I was that impressed I have also bought the Double Underbed one. I will certainly recommend these to friends and family.

Very disappointed - not strong enough to support weight”
by Penny Lawrence
I purchased these storage bags in all three sizes. The other sizes are fine, but the straps on this size are just not strong enough to support the weight - they ripped as soon as I tried to lift it after filling and vaccuuming. I bought two of these, and both broke (my husband broke the second, not knowing the flaw). Poor, and I recommend you avoid this size which is a great pity as they would be fantastic if only the outer fabric were more sturdy.

If the ziplock on these closed then there might be a chance of the vacuum cleaner sucking out the air. However, given that it repeatedly opens there isn't much chance of that. They function fine as storage but won't hold as much as I'd hoped. I'm disappointed as I expect better quality from Lakeland.

These are GENUIS! I am completely delighted with these storage bags. All my spare/ winter duvets and spare pillows are nicely, neatly, cleanly stored away now. Well done Lakeland!

Ordered 2, liked them so much, I bought 3 more”
These are brilliant. Took a king size duvet and 4 pillows (in padded protectors) easily. Two things to watch out for with vacuum packing: a) anything you put inside will almost certainly get crumpled so I wouldn't use it to store ironed clothes b) not everything shrinks down as much as others - ironed linen hardly shrinks at all, towels are a bit better, duvets are magical. It took several goes of packing and un-doing before I got this right & the bags weren't too full - I was pleased I'd got the better quality as I don't think think cheaper ones would let you do this.

Just purchased 2 and am about to purchase another 2. These may be more expensive than other vacuum storage bags available but the quality far exceeds others. I would definitely recommend to other customers

straps not strong enough/ripped off when lifting”
Just bought a variety of these and generally very happy but this jumbo version doesn't have reinforced straps to account the the extra weight it'll contain. Picking up to carry in a vertical position to take upstairs the whole side ripped open. Initially I thought I might have been too heavy handed with it so gently lifted the other side and the same thing happened. Would be a 5 star product were it not for this. To be fair to Lakeland they were great when I called and were happy to offer a refund or replacement and pass the problem on to their product design team to be rectified.

excellent product...I have spent fortune on cheap versions from high street shops all of which filled up with air again in no time. These are quick and efficient to use and do exactly what they promise to do.
