I packed some loaded mags a couple years ago in a vacuum sealed (heat) bag
while going through things yesterday, discovered that it had failed
these were commercial vac-bags, with the mesh(~) interior.
is this typical? is there some secret method I should brush up on?
After we used up the original vacuum bags with our sealer i bought similar bags from ebay because they were cheaper and suppose to be just as good..
I have also noticed that they dont hold a seal very well at times.. I have started making the back long and then double sealing them on each end after i vacuum them..
Im not sure what the 'mesh' is for, but i also found that it likes to stick to frozen foods until they thaw completely..
I doubt that I will by the mesh kind again.. I think it could be the ' you get what you pay for' scenario.
IIRC, these are seal-a-meal bags
the "mesh" (grid) inside the bag is to help get all the air out.
vacuum empties the bag real well, but I think we're all looking for a seal that lasts.
