I bought these sacs over 10 years ago, and only recently did one of them get a tiny hole in it. I patched it up with Duct tape, and although it still leaks a bit, it would work just fine for packing and going on an average trip of 6-8 hours. These are very durable, and when there are no holes, are great for keeping things packed flat for easily 6 months or more.

These sacs will let you pack almost everything in even your carry on!
It's perfect for winter and more "puffy" gear, it will make it completely flat!
As I unpack out of my carry on bag on which I only take on most trips people are amazed by how much I can fit while they are stuck checking in luggage!
I haven't had any issues with the sacs puncturing, the material seems very strong and durable.

I often visit ski hills during the winter season, and packing a giant puffy winter jacket with snow pants can take up a LOT of space (especially if you're crammed in a small car with other people!) - these compression bags will be a HUGE help, as it will literally flatten the jacket into a pancake. These sacs are also great for storing winter gear during the off-months, also saving a ton of closet space.
My only minor concern is the plastic material of the bag - it definitely seems durable, but I'll have to be careful about not puncturing it. Overall, I'm incredibly happy with the product!
