Space-Saver Bags Review
I saw these space saving bags that are meant for travel. I have used the others and like them…these do not have to be sucked out by a vacuum. You seal your clothes in and then just roll. The air comes out a valve on the other end.
I am traveling to Blog World Exp and will be there for 5 days. Trying to fit everything into one suitcase can be a challenge. With the cost involved with just your suitcases….you want to only take one of them. It is $20 for the first bag and $30 for a 2nd bag..that would be $100 just in luggage round trip. That is crazy!!
The finished product…..
The side view. There are 3 blazers in here.
Here are my shirts…
Sucked up shirts.
So here is what I think. I think these could be a big benefit. My main concern was if the clothes were going to be wrinkled much worse than they would be from normal packing. Looking down into the finished sucked up bags….all I could see were these wrinkled looking clothes. It was hard for me to believe that they wouldn’t come out that way. Not that I didn’t want to give a full testing for all of you….but I didn’t want to have completely wrinkled clothes. Maybe…..they don’t wrinkle…but I didn’t want to be walking around BWE in terrible looking clothes and have to say…ooops….
So I didn’t use them other than on my jeans. Those did not roll very well either. I did pack the empty bags in my suitcase because I think they will be awesome to put my dirty clothes in to come home.
The gold sweater already had some wrinkles after just 5 minutes in the bag. The other issue I had was that I roll as many of my clothes as I can to fit down in the sides…with these I couldn’t roll as much.
But I do think these could be of good use in several cases. So I am not giving these a bad review…but I think you have to just be careful with what you use them with.
Full disclosure – I purchased these myself at Meijers for $14.99 (2 small and 2 large bags). I was not asked to review…just thought I would let you know.
