Best Vacuum Bags for Travel – BUYER’S GUIDE

back to menu ↑

Item Type

Vacuum storage bags are great for compressing soft items, but they can also be used to store hard things, such as kids’ toys or other items with many small pieces. They are also handy to store and protect flat items such as laptops or books for waterproof and dustproof safekeeping during a move.

Material

Certain items should not be stored in vacuum storage bags, especially for an extended period, because the compression may affect their ability to decompress. Natural fibers, such as wool or the down filling found in coats and comforters, might not regain its original shape after prolonged storage in vacuum bags. Vacuum storing for a couple of weeks during a move should be fine, but you may not want to store wool or down-filled items for longer periods (several months) in vacuum bags. Also avoid vacuum storing leather items, which could become permanently creased or wrinkled if pressure sealed. Store your leather and suede items in a traditional garment bag.

Ribbed Profile

Food storage vacuum bags that come with a ribbed or textured surface are typically only compatible with a specific sealing machine brand and may not work in different machines. Generic storage bags may also fit only specific machines, so make sure the bags you’re buying will work in your sealing machine.

Q. What items should not be vacuum-packed?

Do not store leather, wool, and feather-filled items in vacuum bags. The intense compression may give them permanent wrinkles, or they may be unable to fluff back up.
