Using vacuum sealed bags for travelling: The BEST way to save luggage space

Have you seen the viral videos online showing people packing for a month away using vacuum sealed bags and just a tiny suitcase or backpack?

If you’ve ever used a vacuum sealed bag before you’ll know how amazing they are for compressing soft items and saving so much space. Many people have used vacuum storage bags for years for items like seasonal clothing and bedding. I used them for my ski clothing as I rarely use it and a vacuum bag allows me to squish these bulky items into a tiny bag and slip them under my bed.

Vacuum sealed storage bags work by removing the air from a bag and therefore compressing the bag by up to 75%.

Not only are vacuum sealed bags great for storing soft items in your home, but they’re brilliant for travel.

Here’s my guide to using vacuum sealed bags for travelling and my recommendations for the best vacuum bags for holidays.

Can you use a vacuum sealed bag for travelling?

Yes, you can! Vacuum sealed bags are great for travelling because they save so much space in your luggage.

And vacuum bags can be used without a vacuum cleaner to suck the air out – so you don’t need to worry about finding a vacuum cleaner when you’re on holiday! All of the vacuum bags I’ve mentioned in this post do not need a vacuum cleaner!

Even if you will have access to a vacuum cleaner, I wouldn’t recommend buying vacuum bags that rely on a vacuum cleaner to remove the air. If you need to open your vacuum sealed bags at the airport you’ll need a way to suck the air back out of them so they fit back inside your luggage, so I recommend using one of the 3 I’ve mentioned below.

I like to use them for:

  • Family holidays where we all share one big suitcase – vacuum bags keep everyone’s clothes separate and save space too
  • When I’m travelling with just hand luggage and need to save space
  • When I have lots of bulky items like winter holidays and ski trips
  • On my return journeys when I have more to come home with than I left with!

Are there any disadvantages to using a vacuum sealed bag for packing your suitcase?

The main disadvantage to using a vacuum sealed bag in your suitcase is that your clothes are going to be creased. I’ve tried rolling and folding my clothes in many different ways but there is no getting around it, your clothes will be more creased using a vacuum bag.

Travel Hack Tip: Rolling your clothes rather than folding them does help but it won’t avoid the creases all together.

For some clothing it isn’t really a problem if you crease them and other items will quickly and easily iron out. But there are some items of clothing that will need to be rewashed if they’re REALLY creased. 

travel vacuum storage bags

Can I use a vacuum sealed bag even if I don’t want my clothes to be creased?

I often use a vacuum sealed bag but I actually only use the vacuum compression part when I’m coming home with a suitcase full of dirty clothes.

I’ll use the vacuum bag like a regular packing cube for my departure and I won’t compress it at all. But when I come home (and my clothes are dirty and creased and will need to go straight in the washing machine anyway) I’ll use the compression part. 

I find this works really well because I often end up coming home with more stuff in my suitcase anyway. I will have picked up souvenirs and gifts while I’m away so that extra bit of space comes in very handy.

travel vacuum storage bags

Should I travel with an iron if I’m using vacuum sealed bags?

If your accommodation on holiday doesn’t have an iron available then I do recommend travelling with either a travel iron or a steamer.

Personally, I always travel with a steamer. I just have a cheap travel steamer from Amazon and it’s great. The exact one I use is out of stock but this steamer here is basically the same one. I use it at home now too and I barely ever get the big iron out. A steamer is much easier while you’re travelling as you don’t need an ironing board and it’s much lighter.

You do need to consider the amount of space a steamer will take up in your luggage vs the amount of space you’re saving by using vacuum sealed bags. 

It’s also worth noting that many hotels don’t have irons in the room but they are available on request.

I REALLY don’t want super creased clothes!

If you really don’t want your clothes to be creased then I’d recommend using a compression bag rather than a vacuum bag.

A compression bag will compress your clothing and will save a lot of space, but it won’t remove the air completely so your clothes won’t be as squished.

I like to use The Travel Hack Compression Packing Cube alongside The Travel Hack Backpack. These items have been designed together so the cube fits perfectly inside the case. 

travel vacuum storage bags

Will my suitcase be too heavy if I use a vacuum sealed bag for my luggage?

Another thing to be aware of is that your luggage could quickly become overweight if you’re using vacuum bags!

You’ll be able to fit so much more in your luggage so it’s obviously going to weigh a lot more so be very careful and make sure you weigh your luggage.

When I’m at home I weigh my suitcase with my normal bathroom scales but if you’re travelling it might be worth getting some travel scales for luggage . 

Travel scales cost around £10-£15 and I think they’re worth it to give you peace of mind and avoid the extortionate fees you’ll pay for having overweight luggage.

travel vacuum storage bags

What happens if there isn’t a weight limit for my hand luggage?

You’ll often find that there isn’t actually a weight limit for your hand luggage. Many airlines simply request that you can lift your luggage into your overhead locker unassisted so, if you’re strong enough, your hand luggage can be as heavy as you like.

If this is the case then go for it!

Just be aware that you may need to carry your luggage a long way and often up and down flights of stairs, so don’t make it so heavy you can barely carry it! I’d also recommend trying to act casual around the airline staff if your suitcase is really heavy! Don’t draw attention to it and try to act like it isn’t that heavy.

Which are the best vacuum sealed bags for travelling?

There are lots of vacuum sealed bags to choose from which will work perfectly in your luggage for a holiday. I’m going to keep it simple and share three of my favourites.

In all honesty, all vacuum bags are fairly similar so you don’t need to go trawling the internet looking at different designs as there isn’t much of a difference.

The main thing you want to look out for when looking for vacuum bags for travel is that they can be used without a vacuum cleaner! Many of us won’t be able to rely on having a vacuum cleaner available while we’re travelling so you wouldn’t be able to vacuum it shut for your return journey. There is also the possibility that you’d be asked to open it in the airport and you’d need to be able to remove the air and seal it shut again while you’re at the airport.

#1. The electric pump – Vago Electric Portable Luggage Compressor

  • Compressible - Soft items get compressed to make up to 50% more space
  • Small - Only weights 77g and is 70mm long
  • Smart - Detects pressure and stops automatically

travel vacuum storage bags

The Vago portable luggage compressor with an electric pump to remove the air is my favourite. These bags were my first introduction to using vacuum sealed bags for travelling 

I wrote this Vago baggage compressor review back in 2018 and I still love it and use it today.

The main benefit with the Vago vacuum bag is that the pump on it is electric so it does all the hard work for you.

Of course, this could also be a disadvantage because there is the chance your pump could break or you wouldn’t have a plug handy. So that’s something to consider.

The pump is small and you get a medium sized vacuum bag included with the pump. Larger vacuum bags are also available to buy separately.

  • Has lasted me years with lots of use
  • Electric pump is easy

These Spacesaver vacuum storage bags are the best sellers on Amazon with tens of thousands of positive reviews. They come in a variety of sizes and they come with a small hand pump that is suitable for travel. The air can also be removed using a vacuum cleaner.

While using a vacuum cleaner is obviously much easier, the hand pump is also very easy and just as effective and doesn’t require any special strength.

Pros for the Spacesaver Vacuum Storage Bags

  • Great price
  • Can be used with a vacuum cleaner or hand pump

Cons for the Spacesaver Vacuum Storage Bags

  • You have to carry the hand pump with you – it’s quite small but it’s an extra thing to remember – or have a vacuum cleaner available.

No pump – Roll Up Compression Bags

  • 4 Travel Roll Up Storage Bags: 24x16 inches (60x40cm), hand roll items into the storage bag, the Unique Roll-up Design squeezes every ounce of air out of the bags.
  • No pump or vacuum required: When you're travelling and want the most space, these storage bags are perfect. No need for a hand pump or vacuum to use, just simply roll up and seal.
  • Save Up More Storage Space: Rolling and pushing out air reduces the size of items up to 75% leaving extra space in your suitcase.

travel vacuum storage bags

These roll up compression bags don’t have a pump at all and you remove the air by rolling them up and squeezing the air out before sealing them.

While they aren’t quite as effective as vacuum bags with a pump, they are still perfectly suited to travelling – possibly even better for travelling. They don’t remove as much air but this means your clothes aren’t quite as creased so for many people these will be a better option.

The fact that they don’t have a pump means there’s nothing technical that could go wrong with them and there’s nothing extra to pack (and potentially forget to pack!)

They are still brilliant for removing the air so they’re a great, simple and cost-effective option.

Pros for the roll up compression bags

  • There is no pump to potentially forget, lose or break
  • Clothes aren’t quite as creased
  • Cheapest option

Cons for the roll up compression bags

  • Doesn’t remove quite as much air as the vacuum bags with pumps
  • Can be a bit tricky as you try to squish the air out while also not allowing too much air back in – could be a little awkward if you have mobility issues (I found it easiest to sit or kneel on it)

There you have it. Three of my favourite vacuum bags suitable for travelling.

If I had to choose one favourite I would say it’s the Space Saver Vacuum bags.

They’re extremely effective at removing the air and the portable handheld pump is really easy to use. The Vago one is better but it’s more expensive and relies on a pump you need to plug-in (which could be awkward if you need to open it and reseal it at airport security!)

The roll up bag is also brilliant and I couldn’t believe how effective it was even without a pump. So this is a good option for a budget vacuum bag or for anyone who doesn’t want to rely on a pump.

thank you for this article, life saver!

Wednesday 26th of October 2022

I always use vacuum bags for travel and never use a vacuum. Just open the vent and roll like a compression bag, then replace the cap. Why bring the pump and take up space?

Thursday 27th of October 2022

I've found the pump does remove a bit more air but I agree, it's not needed at all and I don't like removing ALL the air because everything gets too creased.

  • Why Trust The Spruce

The Spruce / Henry Wortock

Vacuum storage bags are a great way to protect items in long-term storage, make the most of your storage space, and even prepare for an upcoming move. They're great for storing off-season clothes and blankets, too.

In fact, we think using vacuum bags to keep your warmest blankets in storage during the summer months is a smart idea. You can store heavy comforters, extra quilts, and flannel sheets together in a large bag. That way, it's very easy to keep track of bedding sizes, even in storage.

If you've never used a vacuum bag before, or aren't sure what kind to get, rest assured that we've been there, too. We recently conducted extensive testing in The Lab to see which brands and types of vacuum bags are really up to the task of protecting your belongings for long-term storage. We scrutinized them, filled them with all kinds of bedding, and even submerged them in water to come up with a list of recommendations in a variety of categories.

Editor's Note: This review was revised in March 2024 to include updated testing insights.

Best Overall

Gongshi vacuum storage bags.

  • Design 5 /5
  • Performance 5 /5
  • Capacity 5 /5
  • Durability 5 /5

Simple and straightforward to use and seal

Can be used with vacuum or included hand pump

Strong yet flexible plastic material

Good value for set

Water tight

Had to re-thread and adjust some plugs when sealing

Bags showed wrinkles after contents were removed

One small piece of plastic dislodged after usage

Ranking at the top of our list is this convenient Gongshi set that features 12 bags in four varying sizes, plus a travel hand pump. During testing, we filled the bags with queen-sized sheets and were pleased with how well they held up. They handled both the vacuum and the hand-pump well when it came to removing air, and both methods were easy to manage. Our best overall didn't show any signs of leaking when we submerged them in water. The material, a durable plastic, felt like it would protect our items for long-term usage, while still being light enough that it wasn't cumbersome to work with or handle.

The Spruce / Dera Burreson

We had few complaints about this set overall, but if we were to be nit-picky, there were a couple small details that weren't ideal. We did find that instead of going on perfectly, the plugs needed to be re-threaded for a proper seal. The bags were rather wrinkled after we removed our props, too. Lastly, there was a small piece of plastic that seemed to shift from the zipper.

But, overall, these felt like very small notes on an otherwise impressive set that performed well, and proved to be a great value. We could see it working well for frequent travelers, people with upcoming moves, and anyone who has long-term and seasonal storage needs.

Amount: 12 (other sets available) | Dimensions: Varies, range from 24 x 16 inches (small) to 40 x 30 inches (jumbo) | Pump Included: Yes | Clips Included: No | Warranty: Not listed

Storage Master Vacuum Storage Bags

  • Design 4.3 /5
  • Value 4.8 /5

Can be used with vacuum or included pump

Plaid patterns are easy to spot in storage

Sturdy, durable material with textured top

Colorful designs might not suit all tastes

The Storage Master vacuum bags stood out in the lab in a couple of ways. First, their brightly colored plaid print is unique among the field of vacuum storage bags. We like how this makes them easy to spot in storage, and because different sizes come in different colors, it can help with organizing, too.

We also appreciated the subtle texture on the exterior of the bags. Most vacuum bags are smooth, but the slight weave can help them stay in place and limit sliding when stacked. Plus, they come in multiple sets and packages, suiting all kinds of budgets.

Mostly, though, we gave these a big thumbs up, because they proved effective during testing, and we sampled them with both a pump and a vacuum to deflate the air inside. Both methods worked well. We were pleased with their tight seals and performance after we checked them at 24 hours, too. If their colors suit your taste or you're not particular about the appearance of your vac bags, then they're a solid choice. And with such an inexpensive price tag, we think this set of six is a solid best value pick.

Amount: 8 (other sets available) | Dimensions: 19.7 x 27.5 inches (medium) | Pump Included: Yes | Clips Included: No | Warranty: None

Best for Clothes

Taili hanging vacuum storage bags.

  • Design 3 /5
  • Performance 4 /5
  • Durability 4 /5

Built-in hangers accommodate short and long garments

Reduces need for dry cleaning or pressing

Available in multiple colors

Straightforward sealing process

No travel pump included

Tricky to align clothing inside bag

Cumbersome to remove air from bags

Storing off-season clothes in a vacuum storage bag is a great way to save space. We like the Taili hanging vacuum storage bags to keep your hanging items perfectly pressed. While they can be a little tricky to use, we're fans of the concept and the protection they offer (once everything is in place). The challenge lied in getting all of our garments properly positioned. But once we got the hang of that, we found the sealing process to be straightforward and effective.

As we hoped, they kept everything dry when submerged and didn't appear to lose any air when we checked them 24 hours after sealing them. The plastic material felt a little thinner than some of the others that we tested, but we were okay with that, as it was easy to maneuver and manipulate.

Each bag has a five-hanger storage rod that swivels and a double-zip seal. Plus, these bags come in long and short sizes and in variety packs of four or six. They also come in a few different color options and are among the only vacuum storage bags on the market that do. The short bags work great for jackets and pants, while the long bags are better for coats and dresses. Keep in mind that extra-long items may need to be folded at the bottom. If your goal is to safely store longer garments, they're a great pick, and we think they are a sure win for best for clothes.

Amount: 4 (other sets available) | Dimensions: 53 x 27.6 inches (long), 41.3 x 27.6 inches (short) | Pump Included: No | Clips Included: No | Warranty: Free 90-day experience

Best for Comforters and Bedding

Vacwel vacuum storage bags.

Variety of sizes to and sets available

Larger capacity sizes work for cushions, bedding, and mattress toppers

Bag shrank nearly 15% in size during testing

Hand pump not included

Clips not included

This pack of XXL bags from Vacwel can truly fit your bulkiest duvets, comforters, quilts, or blankets. It can even work for mattress toppers, cushions, and pet beds for those hoping to pack these areas for a change in seasons or an upcoming move.

During testing, we were impressed with their large capacity, tight seals, and the fact that they shrank in circumference by roughly 15 percent when we removed the air (the average was just under 14 percent, and few bags were as large as these). We even tried folding the bag after filling and sealing it, and we found that we were able to still fit it underneath the mock bed in the lab. Their contents remained dry after we tried submerging them in water, proving that the seal was effective.

One thing to note is that this pack doesn’t come with a hand pump or adhesive clips. However, with larger storage options, we don't think that's a big deal as you're less likely to travel with them. We tested a package of five XXL bags, which proved ideal for storing several sets of winter bedding or even heftier sweaters for different family members, but other sizes are available, too. The seal is compatible with a standard vacuum hose and can be reused year after year.

Amount: 5 | Dimensions: 47 x 35 inches | Pump Included: Comes with some pack sizes | Clips Included: No | Warranty: Not listed

Best for Long-Term Storage

Ziploc space bags.

  • Capacity 4.8 /5
  • Durability 4.8 /5
  • Value 4.5 /5

Made of durable plastic

Effective and strong Ziploc seal

Contents were tightly sealed; bags stayed compressed

Designed for clothing usage

Higher than median price of tested products

Travel pump not included

When you hear the brand name "Ziploc," you may think of sandwich baggies, but rest assured that the company's vacuum storage bags deserve some attention, too. The brand offers a number of different sizes and sets. During testing, we filled one of these bags in size Large with six plush bath towels, and it was easily up to the task. We even think that more items would have probably fit just fine.

We were definitely satisfied with the overall compression and durability they showed, and no air or water seemed to get in. We're also fans of the XL-sized Space Bag. It can fit bulky items like bedding, linens, or even stuffed animals. You can use it for one large item, like a king-sized blanket or quilt, or multiple smaller items, like winter clothes.

These are slightly higher priced compared to many other vacuum storage bags. But we think their overall performance and the reliable Ziploc name makes these bags a reasonable value, especially for long-term use. Once you vacuum the air out of the bag using a standard vacuum hose, you can be sure that it will stay sealed and airtight for a long time.

Amount: 2 (other sets available) | Dimensions: 17.5 x 22 inches | Pump Included: No | Clips Included: No | Warranty: Not listed

Best for Travel

Hibag space saver bags.

  • Design 4.5 /5

Textured material feels sturdy

Great value

Multiple bag sizes and package variations available

Pump included

Had to use fingers to seal

Contents (2 bath towels) were tough to fit

The set from Hibag Space Saver Bags checks the important boxes for what you'd need in a set of travel-friendly vacuum bags: a pump is included, the bags proved durable and effective, there are multiple sizes available for easy packing, and belongings were protected while sealed (we saw no signs of water seeping in when we submerged them). The material has an extra layer that reminded us a bit of bubble-wrap, which felt sturdy when we handled it during testing.

We did struggle a bit to insert two bath towels into one of the small-sized bags, but ultimately we got them to fit. We needed to use our fingers (along with the included clip) to seal everything up.

Ultimately, we were satisfied with how condensed they were once air was removed via shop vac. We also tried out the included pump and found it to be efficient, too.

Amount: 10 | Dimensions: Varies; starts at 15.7 x 23.6 inches (small) | Pump Included: Yes | Clips Included: Yes | Warranty: 1-year replacement or partial refund

Best for Underbed Storage

Woolite jumbo cube vacuum storage bags.

  • Capacity 4 /5
  • Durability 4.5 /5

Roomy enough for bedding

Bag shrunk significantly (20%) with vacuumed air removal

Bag appeared tightly sealed after 24 hours

Pump not included

Opening could be larger

With one of the roomier sizes we tested (23.5 x 11 x 35 inches), these Woolite bags are a great choice for blankets, bedding, and other bulky items you want to tuck under your bed for long-term yet easy access. They're on the larger size, and they don't come with a pump, so we think they make the most sense for at-home storage, and underbed use in particular. Depending on your space and home, you could also easily tuck them into a closet, laundry room, or garage. They held up well during the 24 hour testing period, protecting contents and keeping items dry when we submerged the bag.

Now, the packaging does claim that these bags can hold up to two Queen size bedding sets and four pillows. Based on our experience, a single bag wouldn't hold that much, but you may be able to come close if you use both sets. We would have liked to have seen a clearer statement about whether you can count on one or both bags for this volume. Still, once we had our hands on these bags and tried one of them, it did very well and proved to be an effective and efficient storage choice.

Amount: 2 | Dimensions: 23.5 x 11 x 35 inches | Pump Included: No | Clips Included: Yes | Warranty: Not listed

Best Heavy-Duty

Magicbag vacuum storage cubes.

Bag held all expected items without feeling overfull

No signs of air leakage after 24 hours

Design of bag is easy to fill

Zipper felt more effective than others tested

Took a few tries to seal bag with zipper

During testing, we appreciated the cubic shape of these bags, which allows them to stand upright—almost like a gift bag—for filling, as opposed to having to lay flat or sideways. The ease with which we could position our belongings and secure everything was a lot smoother and easier than the awkward angles that some of the sideways designs required.

These bags were also roomy enough to comfortably hold two pillows and three sheet sets without feeling like we were overtaxing them. The zipper also had a higher-quality feel to it, and while it took a few tries to properly seal when we were packing it, it proved to hold a tight seal. It was also comfortable to re-zip when we tried the second day.

We had a few complaints about this bag. While a pump would be a convenient addition, using a vacuum to remove air was smooth and easy. Overall, it's a high-performing set that's a good value, too.

Amount: 6 | Dimensions: 27.5 x 39.35 x 12.6 inches | Pump Included: No | Clips Included: Yes | Warranty: Limited warranty

Final Verdict

Our best overall pick for vacuum storage bags are the  Gongshi Vacuum Storage Bags . They're super easy to use, proved effective at holding and protecting contents, and they work with a vacuum or travel pump. We also like the  Storage Master Space Saver Bags , which we named our best value pick. They also held up impressively well during testing, come in budget-friendly sets, and have patterned exteriors for easy sorting and spotting.

Spacesaver Vacuum Storage Bags : While these bags did an impressive job at condensing a duvet into a stunningly small size, we were disappointed to see that they started re-inflating just a few minutes after sealing. It did seem to protect items inside, but we would have preferred them to stay compact.

Amazon Basics Vacuum Compression Storage Bags with Hand Pump : At first, these bags seemed consistently sturdy with some of the other picks we've named. However, roughly an hour after we sealed them, they started to re-inflate, too. They were also one of the few picks that allowed water to reach the contents when we submerged them.

MagicBag 6-Pack Large Flat Vacuum Compression Bags : After filling and sealing this bag, we were optimistic about it. However, it also re-inflated within 30 minutes of sealing. Instead, we would suggest another pick from this brand, the MagicBag Vacuum Seal Storage Bags (XL Cubes ), our best heavy-duty pick.

How We Tested the Vacuum Bags

We tested 16 different types of vacuum bags in The Lab . There, we assessed, filled, and even submerged them in water to come up with a list of picks that we can confidently recommend. The first step was a visual inspection of each bag, noting everything from the material to the port attachment.

Next, we filled them with an appropriate amount of linens, which ranged from sheets and blankets to towels and pillows. We paid careful attention to how much we could fit, versus how much the brand or packaging claimed that the bags hold. Once the bags were full, we measured their circumference.

Then, we compressed each bag. For most, this step was completed with a vacuum, but when a pump was included with a set of storage bags, a second sample bag was filled so we could compare both the pump results with the vacuum results. After the bags were compressed, we remeasured them to compare the difference in circumference and to see how much space was gained.

Finally, compressed bags were set aside. We returned after 24 hours to assess how well the seals remained, whether the bags reinflated at all, and how both bags and their contents held up (including through water submersion). These results were then compared, analyzed, and we landed on our top list of recommendations that you're reading today!

What to Look for in a Vacuum Storage Bag

Vacuum storage bags can fit everything from toiletries to a few sweaters and a  king-size comforter . The best size of bag for you will depend on what you're trying to store or organize. Some users prefer to get multiple bags of the same size so they can be stacked and stored together. Others look out for variety pack options so they can store items in the most efficient way possible and ultimately do not waste any space. Some bags come in traditional flat styles, while others are designed to be more like cubes.

Typically, vacuum storage bags come in small, medium, large, and jumbo sizes. A small bag can be as little as 24 x 16 inches, while a jumbo bag can be as large as 48 x 36 inches. Many of our recommendations come in variety packs or are offered in sets, including our best for travel , the Hibag Space Saver Bags , which are available in 19 different sets, and our best value pick, the Storage Master Vacuum Storage Bags , which come in 14 sets.

Intended Use

It's also key to consider how you'll be using your vacuum storage bags. For starters, if you intend to reuse them year after year or if you want to store items once for a longer period of time, look for ones that are made of durable plastic and don't have valves or gaskets that will break easily (we recommend the MagicBag Vacuum Seal Storage Bags (XL Cubes ), our best heavy-duty pick). On the other hand, if you want to use your bags for travel—say, when you take a trip across the world—be sure to buy ones that come with a hand pump, like the Hibag Space Saver Bags (our best for travel pick) so you don't need to track down a vacuum at your destination.

Vacuum storage bags tend to be made of thick plastic. Although they aren’t puncture-proof, regular use usually doesn’t cause problems with the plastic itself. Take it from us, it's the bag's valves, zip top, or seals that are typically the first to go. If you plan to reuse your vacuum storage bags often or want to use them long-term, look for a brand that offers a lifetime guarantee or has invested in the durability of their bags. It may be helpful to look for notes about lifespan and to check on potential warranties. During testing, and while creating this list of recommendations, we did our best to only suggest bags that held up well and showed potential for long-term durability.

Standout Features

Travel pump.

If you're using your vacuum storage bags on the go to keep your suitcase organized and neat, look for one that includes a hand pump. Using this handy accessory, you can remove air from your storage bag while you travel and don’t have access to your normal vacuum. This can make packing even easier when you are on your way home and can even free up space for extra souvenirs. Among our picks, three come with a pump: our best overall , the Gonhshi Vacuum Storage Bags ; our best value , the S torage Master Vacuum Storage Bags , and our best for travel , the Hibag Space Saver Bags .

Adhesive Clip

An adhesive clip is a great way to make sure you get a good seal on your bag. Any place that opens, including the main opening to the bag where you put your items, is a place where air can potentially get into the vacuum-sealed storage bag. An adhesive clip keeps this area secure and airtight, even when the regular seal is a bit worn. We made careful note on which sets came equipped with a clip.

Vacuum storage bags remove the air from a bag by using a vacuum hose or travel hand pump. Once the air is removed, a one-way valve keeps air from going into the bag. It's important to follow the manufacturer's directions when using vacuum storage bags. You may need to secure zip tops, turn seals, or complete other steps required to make the bag absolutely airtight.

You can store things in vacuum storage bags indefinitely, although most will start to leak and allow air back inside over time. High quality vacuum storage bags will remain airtight for at least a few months. This makes them an ideal way to store clothes, bedding, and linens as the seasons change. You can also use them to pack for travel and maximize the space in your luggage.

You should not vacuum pack food items unless you are using a vacuum sealed bag specifically made for food. These vacuum storage bags require a system or appliance other than your traditional vacuum. In addition, clothing and bedding items should not be vacuum-packed for too long, especially when it comes to a  puffy duvet . If you're hoping to pack them, it might be best to take them out of the vacuum storage bag every once in a while to let them move. Also, it's key to make sure all items are completely dry before packing them away.

Quilts are a great item to store in vacuum storage bags, especially if you want to  protect handmade quilts  for a long period of time. Just be sure to take them out of storage every once in a while and pack them a bit differently to prevent any hard creases from forming.

Your Questions, Answered

Better Homes & Gardens / Henry Wortock

It can sometimes seem like storage space is always at a premium, especially in smaller homes . Storage space is certainly precious when it comes to packing a suitcase for travel, too. Vacuum storage bags can be an excellent way to save on space, whether at home or on the road. 

Michele Vig , founder and chief organizer of Neat Little Nest, says vacuum storage bags can be an excellent option for long-term storage of fabrics at home. When it comes to travel, she believes they’re “top-notch” and adds, “Make sure you’re finding a bag that seals by rolling it so you can repack your luggage for the trip home.” 

We evaluated each option based on how durable the bag was, its capacity, whether the bag stayed sealed after 24 hours, and whether the bag kept items dry after being submerged in water.

For more information on how we tested air purifiers in our lab, check out  our testing process   below.

Best Overall

Gongshi vacuum storage bags.

  • Design 5 /5
  • Performance 5 /5
  • Capacity 5 /5
  • Durability 5 /5

The bags kept out water, were easy to use, and are made of durable plastic.

We found sealing the bags with the hand pump allowed for fewer items to be stored.

Our pick for the best vacuum storage bags goes to Gongshi. This option includes 12 bags in four sizes (small, medium, large, and jumbo), and it comes with a hand pump. We tested out the medium-size bags with five sheet sets, using the hand pump with one bag and a vacuum with the other to seal them. 

Vacuum sealing the bags with a wet/dry vac allowed us to fit all five sheet sets in the bag while the hand pump only allowed for three sheet sets. We found the sealing process for both options to be quite simple and straightforward, with both the vacuum nozzle and the hand pump fitting easily into the bag’s valve. Sealing with the wet/dry vacuum took only 18 seconds, while the hand pump seal took a full minute—something to note if you’re in a time crunch. Both sealed bags fit nicely in the 12-inch storage space under a queen bed and on a shelf meant for cube storage.

During testing, we gave the bags glowing reviews. We found the plastic to be durable and didn’t feel that it might tear, though it did have some creases after compression. After submerging the bags in water for one full minute, neither bag allowed water to enter, meaning everything was nice and dry. After 24 hours, both bags stayed sealed and compressed, though the hand-pumped bag did increase in size by roughly 3%. We felt that the number of bags, how well they held up, and the price all combined to make these the best overall choice.

Best for Clothes

Ziploc space bags.

  • Capacity 4.8 /5
  • Durability 4.8 /5
  • Value 4.5 /5

These bags kept the contents dry and easily held six bath towels.

You may not want to use these for storing zippered or embellished clothing since the thin plastic could tear.

These vacuum storage bags come in a pack of three and have a clip that simply slides across the zippered lock to seal it, plus an intuitive flip-open cap for attaching a vacuum hose. We were able to seal the bag in an impressive 10 seconds, which is one of the quickest compression times we observed during our 16 tests. 

During our testing process, we were able to compress six bath towels in the bag. According to Ziploc, the bag should hold up to 10 sweaters, and we feel that’s an accurate claim. Once compressed, we were able to place the bag both under a queen size bed and on a Z-rack with no problems. 

The bag includes a bit of bubble wrap, so it has some cushioning for delicate clothing. We observed that the bag felt thin, but found it held up to the compression process with no tears—just a bit of wrinkling afterward. However, it might be wise to avoid using them to store zippered clothing or sweaters with metal embellishments in case they tear the thin plastic. 

After 24 hours, the bag was still sealed and measured only about 2% larger than the initial seal, so it kept out air quite well. Even after being submerged in water, the towels were protected and dry. The valve did leave an indent in a towel resting against it, which we were able to fluff away. You may want to avoid placing more delicate clothing closest to the valve to keep from potentially damaging your favorite sweater, however. 

Product Details: Bags: Three | Sizes: 22 x 30 inches | Included accessories: None

Best for Bedding

Vacwel vacuum storage bags.

During our testing, the bag’s circumference shrank by more than 10 inches, making it a wise choice for storing large linens in a small area.

The price feels a bit high when you consider that the bags are all the same size, which doesn’t provide much variety.

This the best option if you have extra bedding to stash away. It was able to handle two pillows as well as three sheet sets. And despite holding that much, the bag’s circumference shrank by more than 10 inches, making it especially handy for smaller storage spaces . We could easily place it under a bed, and it still fit nicely in this 12-inch space after we folded the bag and its contents in half—meaning it’s perfect for storing lots of items in a compact area.

Using a wet/dry vacuum, we found it simple enough to remove the valve cover, attach the hose, and replace the cover. It took about 15 seconds to compress the bag, but we felt the end of the bag could have benefited from more compression, so we gave it another 10 seconds of sealing time but didn’t see a significant change in size. 

We appreciated the moderately thick material with its sturdy feel, and we didn’t feel that the bag might tear when storing bedding. The bag stayed compressed with no sign of air leakage, plus it didn’t allow water in during a one-minute submerging. Post-compression, we observed some minor wrinkling but no signs of stretching, so we’re confident they’ll stand up to multiple uses, such as when storing seasonal clothing that you’ll use each year. Though five bags are included, the price tag felt a little high, especially since each bag is the same size.

Product Details: Bags: Five | Sizes: 47 x 35 inches | Included accessories: None

Best Hanging

Taili hanging vacuum storage bags.

  • Design 3 /5
  • Performance 4 /5
  • Durability 4 /5

The bags easily hold five coats and come with a hanger so you can simply hang them in a closet once sealed.

It can be difficult to use the zipper because it’s on the long edge, and the valve’s placement leads to less efficient airflow and a longer compression time.

Sometimes, closet space is all the storage area you have to spare. In that case, these are the best choice since they come with a hanger for easy vertical storage. They come in two sizes, with two bags included per size. 

We loved the capacity of the larger size bag, which fit five hip-length coats along with their hangers. We didn’t love the thinner plastic that didn’t feel terribly sturdy, yet it held up to the 24-hour compression test with no tears. We measured a decrease in size of nearly 12% immediately after sealing the bag, with a negligible increase in size after 24 hours. Plus, the bag didn’t allow water in when it was submerged for a full minute.

We didn’t feel that using the bag was very easy, though. We struggled to lay the coats flat within the bag because of the zipper’s placement on the long edge of the bag. We also had to search for sealing instructions online, and found it difficult to properly align the vacuum with the bag’s valve. The bag’s design meant the coats were pressed up against the valve, interfering with airflow, which then led to a longer compression time—about 2.5 minutes. 

Product Details: Bags: Four | Sizes: 41.34 x 27.56, 53.15 x 27.56 inches | Included accessories: Built-in hanger

Best for Travel

Hibag space saver bags.

  • Design 4.5 /5

The set includes 10 bags that work extremely well with the included hand pump, so they’re perfect for people who are on the go without access to a vacuum.

These perform slightly better with the hand pump, so you may want to skip sealing with a wet/dry vacuum.

Frequent travelers will find these to be a great option, in part because the set of 10 bags comes with a hand pump for easy use while you’re on the go. We tested out the small bags, and the set contains eight more in four additional sizes, including a travel-friendly roll-up style, a feature Vig recommends. We were able to fit two towels in the small bag, although it was a bit of a struggle and our testers resorted to stuffing the towels in versus folding them neatly. 

Once items were inside, the bag was very easy to seal thanks to the dual-colored zipper lock that lets you see when the bag is sealed at a glance. We sealed two bags—one with a wet/dry vac and one with the included hand pump, both of which worked well. Surprisingly, the hand-pumped bag shrunk by nearly 14% in size while the vacuum-sealed bag only shrunk by about half that much. Both bags fit beautifully under a queen bed, and we liked how durable the plastic material felt. 

Both bags remained sealed after 24 hours with no significant signs of air leakage, plus they kept the towels dry under water. The vacuum sealed bag increased in size by about 3.7% while the hand pumped one actually shrunk another 2% after 24 hours. Neither showed wear and tear after our 24-hour test, although the towels needed to be fluffed up to remove indentations afterward. Our tests show that these are designed to work well with the hand pump that’s included, which makes the bag a must-have for travelers looking to save precious luggage space. 

Product Details: Bags: 10 | Sizes: Carry-on size (15.7 x 19.7 inches), small (15.7 x 23.6 inches), medium (19.7 x 27.5 inches), large (21.7 x 33.5 inches), jumbo (27.5 x 39.4 inches) | Included accessories: Pump

MagicBag Vacuum Storage Cubes

The high-capacity bags easily fit two pillows and three sets of sheets—and still had room for more items.

The bag left wrinkles in the sheet sets, which may mean you’ll want to throw the sheets in the wash or give them a quick pass with an iron before using them again.

If you’re after generously sized storage options, then consider these bags. They come in a set of six, and we found that one bag held two pillows plus three sets of sheets without even meeting the maximum fill line. In part, that’s thanks to their cube-shaped bottom design, which means the bags stand upright, allowing for an easier loading process.

The zippered lock is nice and sturdy, as is the bag material itself. We found the zippered closure to be a bit difficult though, taking multiple tries to seal properly. The plastic clip that’s included does help to increase pressure for a better seal, however. The bags shrunk by a little more than 10% and once compressed, fit easily under a bed and on a cube shelf. Vacuum sealing the bag took only about 30 seconds, falling in the middle of our compression time ranges.

Contents stayed dry even after a one-minute dunk in water, and the bags remained sealed during our 24-hour compression period. The sheets did show some indentations and wrinkles, so you may want to inspect any items you take from storage before using them. Some people may not mind a wrinkle or two, but if wrinkles bother you, know that you’ll likely need to wash or iron fabric items once they’re out of the storage bag. 

Product Details: Bags: Six | Sizes: 27.5 x 12.6 x 39.35 inches | Included accessories: None

Best for Long-Term Storage

Storage master vacuum storage bags.

  • Design 4.3 /5
  • Value 4.8 /5

The textured top material of the bags allows for easy stacking during storage, plus using a vacuum allowed us to fit five sets of sheets in one bag.

The included hang pump took much longer to create a seal and didn’t allow the bag to hold as many items as when vacuum-sealed.

There are some items you want to store over a longer period of time, like heirloom quilts or your grown kids’ baby clothes you can’t bear to part with just yet. In that case, consider this set of six bags from Storage Master. For one thing, they have a textured outer material that lets you easily stack bags together without having them slide off of one another. Sealing the bags is an easy process, so it won’t be a hassle to seal multiple bags if you happen to have quite a few blankets or vintage clothes to tuck away.

The sealing process itself took us about 16 seconds using a wet/dry vacuum. However, it took 1.5 minutes when we used the included hand pump, making it a much less efficient way to seal the bag. The hand-pumped bag also only fit three sets of sheets while the vacuum-sealed bag held five. Plus, the hand-pumped bag inflated about 10% in size 24 hours after sealing it. The vacuum-sealed bag grew as well but by closer to 6%. The bag’s plastic material is thick and sturdy, though it kept some indentations from being folded in the packaging.

The sheet sets from the hand-pumped bag were wrinkled when we pulled them out after 24 hours, so bear in mind you may have some ironing work ahead of you after storing fabric items. Both seal types (wet/dry vacuum and pump) stayed sealed, but we noticed a few drops of water on the sheets from the hand-pumped bag. This was likely due to the sheets picking up water from the outside of the bag, though it’s worth noting if you’re planning to store items in an area that may be wet or damp. 

Product Details: Bags: Six | Sizes: 19.7 x 27.5 inches | Included accessories: Pump

After testing, we found that the Gongshi Vacuum Storage Bags are the best vacuum storage bags. They earned top marks in each of our categories, plus they’re easy to use, durable, stored five sheet sets, and kept air and water out.

To find the best vacuum storage bags, we put 16 options through five tests over a period of 24 hours. We analyzed each bag according to several factors, including the thickness of the plastic, quality of its seal, size before and after sealing, number and type of items that fit, time needed to compress the bags, how it fit on a shelf or under a queen sized bed with 12 inches of storage space, how it fit on a Z rack for hanging (where applicable), whether the bags resisted water when submerged for a full minute, and what the contents looked like after storing them for 24 hours.

With bag options that included a hand pump, we sealed one bag using the hand pump and the second using a vacuum. Interestingly, we found that the hand pump worked better with some options than others—though not in all cases.

Other Vacuum Storage Bags We Tested

Spacesaver vacuum storage bags (electric pump + variety 10-pack).

Though we liked the capacity of these bags from Spacesaver , it was quite a challenge to fit the items (three pillows, a duvet, and a set of sheets) into the bag, so our testers had to be rather forceful when filling. We found using the electric pump that’s included meant we could only fit two of the three pillows in the bag, so the bag held less than when we sealed it with a vacuum. It also took close to two minutes to fully seal the bags no matter which method we used, and both bags began to inflate within 45 minutes to two hours after our initial seal. 

AirBaker 10 Pack (Small) Vacuum Storage Bags

After stashing two towels in the bag, we felt these bags from AirBaker were too small and their material too thin for towels. While using a vacuum and the hand pump both resulted in about 15% bag size shrinkage, the hand pump was quite tiring. The vacuum sealed bag  reinflated by about 14%, and we noticed water on the towels after submerging this bag.

Hefty Shrink-Pack 2 Jumbo Storage Bags

We found that Hefty’s vacuum storage bag shrunk by an impressive 24.26%, but it was difficult to be sure the zipper lock was actually sealed. The bag comfortably fit three pillows along with a duvet and sheet set, which we tucked under a bed once compressed. And though it kept water out, the bag reinflated before 24 hours, which means it didn’t make the cut.

What to Know About Vacuum Storage Bags Before Shopping

Jill Moore, owner and certified professional home organizer of Organized Jill Professional Home Organization advises, “Be sure to not overstuff vacuum bags and utilize the correct size.” She adds, “It is better to place less things in more bags for easier retrieval without having to dig through a large pile.”

Michele Vig, founder and chief organizer of Neat Little Nest, elaborates, “I would choose the bag to best fit the category of items going in—the smaller the category, the smaller the bag.” Vig explains that large bags, for example, are more suited for blankets while summer clothes may fit nicely into smaller bags. She also notes that bigger bags can be “more cost-effective” because they hold larger things and allow you to buy fewer bags. 

On the flip side, large bags might be more challenging to store and can hold too many things, making it a struggle to easily find a specific item. To ensure you have the right size, look for guidance from the manufacturer. Moore notes that most manufacturers tend to list which contents they recommend storing in their bags, plus they may include a line on the bag itself to serve as a capacity guide.

Intended Use and Contents

In terms of the type of items you’re storing, you’ll want to consider how the material might interact with the bags. Vig explains, “Some types of materials store better in containers/bags that can breathe—like natural fabrics (think cashmere). I would prefer to use linen boxes to store those types of items than plastic airtight bags or bins.” Moore agrees, adding, “Different fabrics may react differently to being stored without air circulation and ventilation. Damage could occur to certain fabrics if they were not intended to be stored in this manner.”

Whether you plan on using a vacuum storage bag for extra sheets and towels or to store off-season clothing like winter sweaters, consider how long it will stay in storage before you return to the items. Moore adds, “It is important to rotate the contents of the bags seasonally, as well as use and enjoy the items, so we're not just storing things in perpetuity.” She continues, “Rotating your items seasonally will give you an opportunity to evaluate your belongings before bringing them back into the seasonal rotation in your everyday closets.”

Vig adds, “Unless there is a clear reason items need to be stored in the bags for a long period of time (like a large home renovation), there is a chance that what gets stored in the bags might never be used again.”

Accessories

Depending on the vacuum storage bags you buy, you may find that accessories come with them. You can buy just the bags by themselves, of course. But some brands include a hand pump or even an electric pump as an alternative to using a vacuum cleaner—which can be ideal for traveling when you typically won’t have access to a vacuum for sealing the bags. 

Moore has a few words of advice when you’re looking at seal types. To start, she recommends you “invest in a good brand with a good sturdy ‘locking’ zipper.” She cautions that opting for a less expensive brand may mean the bag will be thinner, which ultimately might result in accidental holes or even a seal that doesn’t stay tightly closed. She says, “It is always better to invest in a better-quality organizing product that will last a longer time than to have to replace inexpensive or flimsy storage items multiple times.”

Do vacuum seal bags actually save space?

Michele Vig, founder and chief organizer of Neat Little Nest, says it depends. “While a vacuum seal bag can save space by shrinking items down, the result of a large plastic bag filled with stuff needs a place to go,” she says. “Without having a good place to store those vacuum bags (a proper-sized shelf, for example), you might not have gained that much storage space.” Vig recommends viewing vacuum storage bags as long-term storage since it can be difficult to access items and reseal frequently. 

Moore adds, “When used correctly, they can absolutely save space, however, fabric prefers to breathe. It can be better to declutter items that you are considering storing for extended periods than to overstuff a vacuum bag and tuck it away; out-of-sight belongings often become out-of-mind belongings, which translates to clutter.” 

Are vacuum storage bags waterproof?

According to Moore, “Vacuum storage bags are water resistant. If something were to spill or drip on them, the contents would likely survive unscathed. However, if a vacuum bag was submerged in a flooded basement, the water trapped inside would quickly grow mildew and mold in the contents.” Vig adds that you’ll need to read the directions from the manufacturer to know for sure if the bag is waterproof.

Do you need a vacuum for vacuum storage bags?

Vig says you may not always need a vacuum to seal vacuum storage bags. She notes, “Many vacuum storage bags now are able to be sealed by rolling the air out of the bag, which makes them excellent for using with air travel.” According to Moore, “For best results, a vacuum is recommended and will remove more air than other methods, such as pressing on the bag to force out the air manually.” Other bags may come with a pump, though they still allow the option of using a vacuum for sealing.

To find the best vacuum storage bags, she researched a variety of options, keeping in mind capacity, performance, durability, and more. She also consulted Michele Vig , founder and chief organizer of Neat Little Nest, and Jill Moore , owner and certified professional home organizer of Organized Jill Professional Home Organization in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, for additional insights.

What is real simple selects.

Real Simple / Henry Wortock

If you want to keep your belongings organized and protected from mildew, mold, odors, or dust while in storage, sealing them in a vacuum storage bag is essential. By compressing your belongings, you can fit more items in a small space and free up valuable storage in your home.

To find the best vacuum storage bags, we tested 16 options in our Des Moines lab. Depending on its size, each bag was stuffed with various sheets, pillows, bath towels, and coats. We evaluated the design, performance, capacity, durability, and value of each vacuum storage bag to come up with our top picks. To understand how the pros use vacuum storage bags, we consulted Nicole Gabai , the founder of B. Organized and the author of the bestseller The Art of Organizing: An Artful Guide to an Organized Life , and Leslie Kilgour , a professional organizer and founder of Get It Straight. 

Best Overall

Gongshi vacuum storage bags.

It’s a variety set that gives you three bags each in small, medium, large, and jumbo sizes.

The circumference shrinkage is minimal.

The Gongshi Vacuum Storage Bag Set earned the title of best overall pick due to its high quality and the fact that it stayed compressed with no signs of air leakage long after the 24-hour testing period. In addition to keeping the air secure, we found no trace of water entering the bag after we submerged it underwater. You can use the pump that comes with it to manually remove the air or any standard vacuum cleaner. We tested this bag with both a vacuum tube attachment and the provided hand pump. 

For around $30, you get a 12-bag set in small, medium, large, and jumbo sizes. However, there are higher-priced sets available that have other size combinations. Each bag features a double-seal slider zipper at the top, along with a triple-seal turbo valve that prevents air from re-entering. On top of that, the bags are reusable, so you get even more bang for your buck.

Sealing the bag was pretty straightforward—all we had to do was attach the zipper to the locking mechanism of the bag and slide it along. Then we attached the hand pump to the bag by screwing it into the valve. Overall, we didn’t find the process of using the hand pump too strenuous, and we were able to remove the air fairly quickly. It took us exactly one minute to finish. 

Our goal was to insert five queen-size sheet sets in the medium-sized bag. We were able to fit all five sheet sets with ease, and it only took us 18 seconds to remove the air with the vacuum attachment. While we were unable to measure volume shrinkage during our testing, we did measure the percent change in the circumference of each tested bag—the medium bag shrank by almost 10% when compressed with the vacuum and by 14% with the hand pump. Although we wish these bags could shrink slightly more, these percent differences were on the higher end of our scale. All in all, you can expect a set of durable storage bags that are easy to store under a bed. 

Material: Plastic | Size: 40 by 30 inches (jumbo), 32 by 24 inches (large), 28 by 20 inches (medium), 24 by 16 inches (small) | Seal Type: Double-zipper, valve | Included Accessories: Pump

Best Budget

Hibag space saver bags.

It’s a 10-pack set featuring assorted sizes.

Clothes come out wrinkled after compression.

When you have lots of blankets or off-season clothes to pack away, a cheap option like the Hibag Vacuum Storage bag set will help save you a buck. This 10-pack set consists of jumbo, large, medium, and small, plus travel roll-up bags. In our tests, we tried out one of the 15- by 23-inch small bags to see if the two bath towels we had were able to fit. While we had no major issues fitting the towels, we did have to wrestle them into the bag a bit. 

This set includes a pump to manually take the air out, which we found easy to use. It took us less than a minute to compress the towels, and we were able to reduce the circumference by 4 inches (an almost 14% change). Although the bag’s plastic material wasn’t that thick, we were astonished by how sturdy it was. These bags also have an inner lining similar to bubble wrap, which gave us the impression that they would hold up well over time. We were able to compress the towels without any tears or holes, though the towels were extremely wrinkled once we took them out.

What was most important to us was that the bag remained sealed and had no leaks despite being in the water. Best of all, the zipper changes from yellow to blue when it's locked, so you can be sure that you've properly secured it.

Material: Polypropylene | Size: 27.5 by 39.4 inches (jumbo), 21.7 by 33.5 (large), 19.7 by 27.5 (medium), 15.7 by 23.6 (small), 15.7 by 19.7 (carry-on) | Seal Type: Zipper, valve | Included Accessories: Pump

Best Extra-Large

Vacwel vacuum storage bags.

These bags are jumbo-sized and can store comforters, clothing bundles, or oversized plush toys.

It’s an expensive option for just five bags.

With the Vacwel Vacuum Storage Bags, you get jumbo bags that you can use to pack away your clothes in a closet, garage, or under your bed. Each 47- by 35-inch bag features a double-seal plus an airtight vacuum valve system that protects your belongings from dust and moisture much better than a regular trash bag could. Just keep in mind that it doesn't come with a pump.

Although we used a shop vacuum to compress our bag, any standard vacuum cleaner would be able to flatten it. Strangely enough, the hardest part for us was attaching zip tags, which were separate from the bag. Once we got over this hump, compressing the bag was easy. We were able to fit two pillows and three sheet sets in the bag with lots of leftover space—if the pillows had been compressed beforehand, we probably could have even squeezed more items in.

Overall, this bag is specially designed for long-term storage. It's also impenetrable when it comes to moisture, but you should make sure that no clothes are obstructing the valve to get the best results. It lost no air over our 24-hour testing period and suffered no leaks, even when we completely submerged it in water. Our only real complaint with this bag is the price: It’s $33 for a set—which is a lot to pay for just five bags. 

Material: Polypropylene | Size: 47 by 35 inches | Seal Type: Zipper, valve | Included Accessories: None

Best Stackable

Storage master vacuum storage bags.

The bags have a square shape ensuring that they stay stacked in your closet.

Some may not prefer the bags’ loud, plaid design.

Unlike other vacuum bags that tend to slide off of one another, the Storage Master Vacuum Storage Bag is made from thick plastic, which makes it more structured and container-like. We tested the medium bag, which the brand says can free up to 80% more space. As part of our testing process, we managed to fit exactly five sheet sets in our bag (with no extra room). 

The bag features an orange and yellow plaid design, so it stands out from the other transparent bags on our list.  Although the colors were not our personal favorite, we could see the appeal. To compress, use the double zipper on the side to seal the bag before vacuuming. Afterward, just insert a pump (one is included) into its no-leak valve and draw the air out. As long as you don’t overfill the bag, you should not have a problem compressing it. It took us only 1 minute and 30 seconds to compress the entire bag with the provided pump. If you prefer to use a vacuum for this step, you can expect even speedier results (16 seconds in our experience). Additionally, this set also comes with a zip-clip to help seal each bag better.

We liked the price and quality of these bags so much that we would be more than happy to pay more for the size we needed. There are small, medium, large, jumbo, and combo size options available. 

Material: Plastic | Size: 19.7 by 27.5 inches (medium) | Seal Type: Zipper, valve | Included Accessories: Pump, zip clip

Best Hanging

Taili hanging vacuum storage bags.

Each bag has space to vacuum seal your clothes with the hangers, so they will be less wrinkled.

Compression takes a while.

The Taili Hanging Vacuum Storage Bags is a four-pack garment bag set consisting of two long (for extra long winter coats) and two short clear bags. Each bag has an inventive built-in hanger to hang clothes and decrease the chance of wrinkles while in storage. Plus, it comes with instructions that tell you exactly how to use them. 

When we checked out the Taili’s capacity, we found that it was able to compress five coats along with their hangers. They all fit in a single bag, so you won't have to splurge on too many bags if you have multiple pieces to store. Since the bag only works properly when clothes are flat, it took a little work to compress our clothes completely. Our coats’ material tended to stick near the port opening, closing off the air and prolonging the compression process. We were able to finish the task after two and a half minutes. 

While the material was flexible, the plastic felt significantly thinner than the other storage bags on our list. That said, we encountered no ripping or tearing during testing. Additionally, it was a battle to get its long zip enclosure lined correctly with the bag, but there are thumb clips to help seal the bag. 

We liked that there were instructions directly on the bag, so we knew exactly how to work the zipper and valves. However, these bags have a no-cap valve, so you simply twist the valve open and closed. This was the main cause of our frustration during the compression test because we had to hold the vacuum at the right angle to suck the air out of the port.

Material: Polyamide, polyethylene | Size: 53 by 27.6 inches (long), 41.3 by 27.6 inches (short) | Seal Type: Zipper, no-cap valve | Included Accessories: Thumb clips, hangers

Best for Travel

Cozy essential vacuum storage bags.

This set has a variety of bag sizes including travel compression bags.

The bags aren’t labeled, so it could be confusing to find the size you need.

The Cozy Essential Vacuum Storage Bag is a 16-pack variety set featuring two extra-large, two large, three medium, three small, and six travel compression bags. Plus, it comes with a pump. We tested the medium bag to see if we could compress five sheet sets in it. The results: the sheets fit perfectly and, after shrinking them, we were able to slide the bag under our testing bed (which had a clearance of 12 inches) and place it on a shelf with room to spare. The bag keeps air out via a valve and a zipper at the top. After our 24-hour compression period, the seal held in place and we saw no signs of leaking. 

Unfortunately, these bags aren't labeled, so we found them slightly difficult to sort through. Off the bat, it’s hard to tell what each size is unless you unfold and individually measure them. If you need a variety of sizes, this set is an excellent option. But, if you just need a certain size bag, this option might be less helpful.

Material: Polyamide, polyethylene | Size: 27.50 by 39.35 inches (jumbo), 21.65 by 33.50 inches (larger), 19.50 by 27.50 (medium), 15.70 by 23.50 inches (small), 15.70 by 23.50 (travel) | Seal Type: Zipper, valve | Included Accessories: Pump

Best for Bedding

Magicbag vacuum storage cubes.

The enormous size is ideal to store thick blankets and pillows.

It does not come with a pump, so you need to use your own vacuum to seal it.

To protect heavy down comforters and fluffy blankets from mildew and odors in storage, a cube-shaped storage bag like the MagicBag Vacuum Storage Cube is the best choice. Because these bags are extra-large—measuring 27.5 by 39.35 by 12.6 inches—we almost had too much space to hold all our items. The storage cube easily handled two pillows and three sheet sets in our testing—which was significantly less than the manufacturer's recommendation of four comforters and two pillows. That said, we did have some trouble closing the zipper before vacuuming out the air, and it took us a few tries to seal everything inside. However, the bag came with a plastic clip that made it easier to close.

Compression made a big difference in the size— it was 52.5 inches before we started compressing it and 47 inches after, losing a little over five inches in the process. At its new size, the bedding could easily fit under a bed or on a shelf. 

These bags have a one-way valve, so no air can re-enter the bag once it is sucked out with a vacuum. This set doesn't come with a pump, which is a slight drawback. (We used our shop vacuum to compress during testing.)  Despite having no cover, the vacuum suction hole remained closed and kept the bag fully dry when we dunked it under water for one minute. In addition, there were no air leaks when we examined it one day after initially compressing.

Material: Polymer | Size: 27.5 by 39.35 by 12.6 inches  | Seal Type : Double zipper | Included Accessories: Plastic clip

Best Heavy-Duty

Ziploc space bags.

The exterior is flexible and features patented shield technology which makes the bags stronger.

This set does not come with a pump.

If you plan on keeping your storage bag in a trailer or storage facility, it’s probably best to go for an industrial-strength bag like these Ziploc Space Bags. The bags are designed to be pliable and feature patented shield technology, giving them extra protection from the elements plus routine wear and tear. They come in multiple sizes including jumbo, large, and medium, as well as hanging options and travel-sized bags. Just keep in mind these bags do not come with a pump, so you’ll have to have a vacuum on hand.

We tested a large-sized bag to see whether ten bath towels could fit in one. Not all of them were able to fit, but we were able to successfully squeeze six towels in. Sealing it was straightforward—all we had to do was attach our vacuum to the white disc near the opening and allow it to compress the bag.  

Although the plastic seemed durable, the inner bubble lining was a little thin, so be careful if you have clothes with zippers that could accidentally puncture it. While the price of this set is a bit higher than other options we tested, these bags are reliable and reusable, so you should get more return on your investment. 

Material: Plastic | Size: 21.5 by 33.5 inches | Seal Type: Zipper, valve | Included Accessories: None

AirBaker Vacuum Storage Bags

These bags can stand up on one side and are ideal for storing items such as children's clothes.

They cannot accommodate bulky items.

Whether you’re looking to maximize storage space in your closet, suitcase, or U-haul, these AirBaker Vacuum Storage bags can help. We immediately noticed that this set was constructed of a different material, which felt softer than regular plastic. This set of bags is available in a 10-pack in four sizes: small, medium, large, and jumbo. But, for testing purposes, we went with the small 23.5- by 15.5-inch size. Our goal was to fit two bath towels in this size bag, which proved more difficult than expected.

We ended up using one plush towel and one regular towel but noted that this size bag may be better for baby or toddler clothes. After we vacuumed the air out, we found that the bags became extremely rigid to the point that they were able to stand on one side. Our water test, on the other hand, reaped different results. The bag that we vacuumed released all of its air during our 24-hour compression period, and we found some water droplets inside the bag after submerging it in water. However, the bag that we pumped by hand did not release any of its air and had no water inside after submersion. We believe this difference was due to a small hole somewhere in the bag that we vacuumed, but think it’s still worth noting. Overall, this set of small compression bags would be great to have on hand for traveling or storing children’s clothes.  

Material: Polyamide, polyethylene | Size: 23.6 by 15.7 inches (small) | Seal Type: Double-zipper, valve | Included Accessories: ‎ Pump 

Our top pick is the Gongshi Vacuum Storage Bags , as you get 12 bags in sizes ranging from small to jumbo. The bags are made from a durable and pliable plastic material, allowing you to pack a lot in them without tearing. For a cheaper option, we suggest the Hibag Vacuum Storage Bags , which offers a variety of sizes and includes travel rolls as well.

We tested 16 vacuum storage bags in our Des Moines lab—including heavy-duty, stackable, hanging, small, and budget options—and evaluated them on design, performance, capacity, durability, and value. Testing was divided into two parts: the first half involved initially compressing the bags, and the second was completed 24 hours after compression. Before we began testing, each bag was evaluated for overall quality, material thickness, port or pump style, and seal quality. 

As part of our design test, our research team came up with a designated amount of items that had to fit in each size of bag. The amounts were as follows: two bath towels in small bags; five sheet sets in medium bags; 10 bath towels in large bags; two pillows and three sheet sets in extra-large bags; three pillows, one duvet, and two sheet sets in jumbo bags; and five coats for garment bags. We then filled each of our bags with the number of items according to their size and noted if we could not fit all of the items in a bag. 

Once sealed, we measured the circumference of each bag before compression. To do this, we used a fabric tape measure and measured the bag’s widest point while it lay flat on a table. For bags that came with a hand pump, we compressed them with this and also used another bag (of the same size and fill) to test its compression with a vacuum. We timed and recorded how long each bag took to compress. For bags that did not come with a pump, we only used a vacuum for compression. After compressing, the circumference was once again measured and recorded.

For our performance test, we took each compressed bag to a mock bed to see how they fit under the bed (with a clearance of 12 inches). For garment bags, we conducted a similar test by hanging them on a Z-rack to see how well the bag could move back and forth. For cube bags, we checked to see if they fit on a shelf as well as under the bed. We also considered how well each bag compressed as a part of this test, noting if it was difficult or slow to pull air out. 

We also considered the capacity of each bag at this stage in our testing. We compared our parameters to those claimed by each manufacturer. Durability was also a major factor during our tests, we noted how the material felt and whether we thought it could stand up to multiple uses.  

Our second stage of testing was conducted 24 hours after we initially compressed the bags. We again were looking at the performance and durability of each bag at this stage. We inspected each bag to see if it remained compressed and remeasured the circumference at the widest point. To test their air-tight seals, we placed each bag in a bucket of water to see if the contents in the bag got wet. After one minute had passed, we took the bag out and inspected its contents to see if any water had gotten into the bag. 

As our final evaluation during both phases of testing, we considered the value of each bag. We noted the features that we liked most and if there was anything we would change about the designs. We also took the time to review the price of each bag and consider whether the price matched the performance we witnessed during testing. 

How to Shop for Vacuum Storage Bags Like a Pro

You’ll find that vacuum bags are mostly made from polypropylene or polyethylene plastics. When sealed, these bags are airtight and highly durable, which makes them a great option to prevent your belongings from getting damaged by dust or mildew while they are in long-term storage. These materials are also designed to be pliable while resistant to tearing and punctures. 

Storage bags are often sold in sets consisting of bags with extra-large, large, medium, or small sizes or a variety pack where you’ll get assorted sizes in a set. “The biggest sizes are jumbo or extra large size bags which are typically 30 by 40 inches, and 24 by 32 inches respectively,” says Gabai. “Both of which are great for bulky items such as comforters, pillows, blankets, and seasonal clothing.” 

Smaller bags are also available to coordinate with less bulky items. Gabai says that medium 20 by 28-inch bags are ideal for storing documents and photographs, while small 16 by 24-inch bags can fit smaller items.

She also points out that some brands offer travel-size storage bags designed to fit in carry-on luggage. “The travel size, however, is not technically a vacuum-sealed bag," she warns. "It's basically a large Ziploc bag, which requires you to squeeze out the air as you roll the clothes inside into a cylinder."

To make a vacuum storage bag airtight, you can seal it manually, or use a machine to make a stronger seal. “Manual seals are created by using a hand pump to remove the air from the bag. Automatic seals on the other hand use the hose or tube of a standard vacuum cleaner to seal the bag. These seals are typically more secure than manual ones,” Gabai says. Many vacuum storage bag brands include a pump accessory—but it’s not always the case.

Storage bags are most commonly used to store bulky fabric items, including blankets, comforters, towels, pillows, seasonal clothing, and off-season bedding. "You can take something that typically inhabits a lot of space, like a comforter or heavy jacket, and turn it into something easy to store and manage—and [it] is better for the item, too, as it won't get destroyed by being stuffed into a closet or bin,” says Kilgour.

Beyond just storage, there are many other ways that these bags could make your life easier and more organized. According to Kilgour, one of the best hacks for vacuum bags is for traveling, as they allow you to compress clothing for easy packing while maintaining its freshness.

Gabai adds that vacuum storage bags are also great for storing off-season gear and clothing, keeping your gear clean, dry, and protected from the elements. If you plan on using storage bags for off-season gear or clothing, be sure the bags are clean and dry before using them to prevent mold and mildew from forming.

You can even get creative with your organization of vacuum bags by using different colors or sizes to organize your belongings by type or season. Just be sure not to overfill your storage bags, as Gabai warns that this may cause the bags to burst. If your bag is damaged or leaking, it's probably time for a replacement.

For Gabai, one of her best organizing hacks using vacuum bags is to store them vertically and place them in a large bin upright. “They act like a file folder so you can easily flip through each bag to see what you have stored and what you want to retrieve,” she says. “Also, be sure to label outside each bag what the contents are. Once they are all compressed, it's hard to see all the items in the bag.”

Features or Accessories

Vacuum storage bags come with special features and accessories to make them as useful as possible for storage purposes. For example, almost all will feature secure double-zip closures which help to ensure that your bags are airtight and secure. You’ll also find that many vacuum storage bag brands include a hand pump to help remove air from the bag.

Plastic clips are often included as well. These clips help close the bag so you can seal it properly. They also assist in preventing air from escaping, just in case the seal starts to wear off.  

In addition to their standard-sized bags, some vacuum storage bag sets also include travel-sized bags, which are designed to be portable and easy to pack. Just remember not to overfill them, as Gabai says doing so may make it difficult to remove the air or damage the bags.

More Vacuum Storage Bags to Consider

Woolite Vac & Stow Air-Tight Storage Bags : Despite this pick advertising itself as a jumbo cube, it did not fit all of our items during testing. We tried to squeeze three pillows, one duvet, and two sheet sets, but could not fit any of the pillows in the bag. Otherwise, the bag comes at a superb price, and we were able to seal it with no air leaks detected.

Spacesaver Vacuum Storage Bags : This Spacesaver set is a 10-pack that includes different sizes. It is the only option on our list that comes with an electric pump accessory. We found filling and sealing the jumbo-size bag to be slightly challenging, but vacuuming the air out with the provided electric pump was thankfully straightforward. The contents of our bag also became small after compression.

Questions You Might Ask

How long do vacuum storage bags last.

According to Gabai, the lifespan of a vacuum storage bag depends on the quality of the bag and how it is used. “In general, vacuum storage bags can last several years if properly cared for," she says. "However, if the bag is not sealed properly or if it is exposed to extreme temperatures or moisture, it won't last as long.”

How long can you store items in a vacuum storage bag?

Most experts agree that storing items such as clothing and bedding for longer than six months can cause them to lose their shape and develop wrinkles and creases which could be hard to iron out. If you want to keep your clothes for the maximum amount of time, Gabai recommends cleaning your belongings before you store them in vacuum bags to prevent mold and mildew from forming. She adds that you should also be sure to store the bags in a cool, dry place.

What items should you not store in a vacuum storage bag?

Although vacuum storage bags can store lots of different items, there are some no-nos that you should avoid if you want to prevent damage and mildew. Gabai advises homeowners not to store items that are wet or damp, perishable, and sharp or pointed items that could tear the bag.

The Best Vacuum Storage Bags For Travel

travel vacuum storage bags

Discovering the best vacuum storage bags for clothes may seem gimmicky and fake, much like those infomercial products that advertisers have been peddling since the advent of modern TV. Although they have appeared on several infomercials, vacuum-sealed bags are nothing like the vast majority of those advertising gimmicks. They make excellent storage containers for both home use and of course, travel!

But what are vacuum storage bags, really?

Built with a small valve, these bags can easily be sealed with a hand pump or a vacuum cleaner. They are designed to release air—not seal it. As you squeeze the air out of these containers, you compress everything that’s inside them. This technology comes in handy when you’re traveling, especially when you’re trying to stuff a lot of items in a small suitcase. Whether you want to bring extra clothes, blankets, or plush toys, you can place them in vacuum-sealed containers to fit everything in your bag.

If you don’t like how vacuum storage bags wrinkle your clothes on a trip, carrying a few extra suitcases won’t do any harm. As a matter of fact, these should come in handy for your return trip. All you need to do is pop your dirty laundry inside and compress everything to make more room for souvenirs and other goodies. Even when you’re not traveling, you can use these vacuum-sealed bags to store your clothes. Likewise, they can be used to store seasonal items like winter jackets and thermal blankets.

How to Choose the Right Vacuum Sealed Bag

Jumbo bags are excellent for carrying heavy winter clothes. Let’s say you’re traveling with family in winter. You can squeeze all your coats and jackets in oversized vacuum bags. Once the air has been pumped out, you will be able to fit everything in a few suitcases, and you won’t have to carry around heavy luggage. Bags for everyday clothes have to be smaller. To get the best bang for your buck, buy variety packs that offer bags in different sizes.

If you’re always on the go, buy high-quality vacuum bags so they can last longer. Look for ones made with thick and durable materials. This way, they won’t rip easily. At the same time, you can ensure that your clothes are safe from dust, moisture, and other elements that might ruin them.

Sealing methods

Find out the sealing methods they use to keep air out. An excellent sealing method will preserve the quality of your clothes while they are inside for extended periods of time.

There’s nothing new about vacuum bags for clothes. Now, you can easily find hundreds of manufacturers who produce such products. But there are a few items that do stand out from the rest. Here, you will see five of the best vacuum storage bags for travel in our opinion.

Another budget-friendly vacuum-sealed bag comes from Simple Houseware. This 39.5- x 26.5-inch bag is more affordable than most storage bags. With Simple Houseware, you can have more for less. Like most of the bags on this list, it claims to reduce storage volume by 80%. It’s airtight and waterproof. However, it doesn’t have a complimentary hand pump. On the other hand, Simple Houseware does offer free utility clips for each storage bag.

Simple Houseware’s vacuum bags also have noticeably thinner plastic, which could lead to some leakage in the long run. Instead of using these for long-term storage, you can use them whenever you’re traveling instead. You only have to keep your clothes for short periods of time, so you won’t have to worry about ruining your clothes in case air starts to seep inside. Since it doesn’t have a complimentary pump, you will either have to buy your own or borrow a vacuum cleaner at your hotel to be able to use this on your travels.

  • Affordable price

  • Has utility clips for storage

Traveling can be an exciting and memorable experience, but packing can be a daunting task. One of the biggest challenges of packing is fitting all your essentials into a limited space, especially if you plan to travel light. This is where vacuum bags come in handy.

When shopping for the best vacuum bags for travel, there are a few things you need to consider. First, the size of the bags is crucial. You want to make sure that the bags are small enough to fit in your luggage, but big enough to hold your clothes. Second, the material of the bags is important.

GONGSHI Vacuum Storage Bags

GONGSHI Vacuum Storage Bags

If you're looking for an affordable and effective way to save space while traveling, GONGSHI Vacuum Storage Bags are a great option.

  • These bags come in a variety of sizes, making them versatile for different types of clothing and items.
  • The double seal zipper and triple seal turbo valve ensure that air stays out and items stay compressed.
  • The bags are made of thick and durable material, so they can be reused and stored for the long term.
  • The included travel pump can be a bit tedious to use, especially if you have a lot of bags to compress.
  • The bags may not hold up as well if they are overstuffed or if the zipper is not closed properly.
  • Some users have reported that the bags may not stay compressed for as long as they expected.

In my experience, these bags work really well for packing clothing and other soft items. I was able to fit a lot of clothes into each bag, and they compressed down to a manageable size that made packing and traveling a lot easier. The bags are easy to use - just load them up, seal them with the zipper, and use the included pump to remove the air. The bags are also reusable, so you can use them again and again for different trips.

One thing to keep in mind is that the bags may not stay compressed for as long as you expect. I found that some of the bags started to re-inflate after a few days, which meant that I had to re-compress them. However, this wasn't a huge deal for me, since I was able to use the bags to save space during the actual trip.

Overall, if you're looking for an affordable and effective way to save space while traveling, I would definitely recommend giving GONGSHI Vacuum Storage Bags a try.

Buying Guide

When looking for the best vacuum bags for travel, there are several factors to consider. Here are some key features to look for:

Size and Capacity

The size and capacity of the vacuum bag is an important consideration. You want to make sure the bag is large enough to hold all your items, but not so large that it takes up too much space in your luggage.

The material of the vacuum bag is also important. Look for bags made from durable materials that can withstand the rigors of travel. Some popular materials include nylon, polyester, and vinyl.

The type of seal on the vacuum bag is another important consideration. Look for bags with airtight seals to ensure that your items stay protected and compacted during travel. Some popular seal types include ziplock, snap, and roll-up.

7 best vacuum storage bags for organizing your clothes and more

Storing your clothes in vacuum bags can reduce the amount of space they take up, plus it will protect your items from mold, mildew and odors, according to experts.

Perhaps you don’t have much closet or drawer space, or maybe you are looking to clean up your storage space — whatever the case, vacuum storage bags can be a smart, efficient way to organize clothes , coats, bedding , towels and blankets you aren’t using.

SKIP AHEAD How do vacuum storage bags work? | How we picked the best vacuum storage bags | The best vacuum storage bags of 2024 | How to use vacuum storage bags | Meet our experts | Why trust NBC Select?

“Vacuum storage bags are essentially airtight bags that allow you to compress, protect and store items easily,” says Eliana Coca, owner of E.C. House Cleaning . They can take those bulky sweaters and giant knit blankets and shrink them to smaller than a ream of paper.   If you’re asking yourself, “how many do I need” or “how big should the bags be,” then we have you covered. We spoke to three professional organizers about just that and even got them to share some of their favorites.

Selected. Our top picks

Vacuum storage bags are essentially large plastic bags you can put clothes into and then remove the air from (through a vacuum cleaner or other device). “This process significantly reduces the volume of the items being stored, which is particularly beneficial for bulky items like seasonal clothing, bedding and towels,” says Coca. This compression saves space and allows you to store items easily, and the airtight bags can also protect your items. “They protect stored items from dust, moisture, and pests, ensuring they stay clean and fresh,” explains Coca. 

How we picked the best vacuum storage bags

Before putting together a list of the best vacuum storage bags, we asked experts what to look for when shopping. Here are the criteria they suggested paying attention to: 

  • Durability: “When shopping, look for durable materials and a reliable sealing mechanism,” says Barbara Tanaka , a professional organizer at Orderly Balanced and the strategic interior design advisor at Real Estate Bees . Look for bags made of thicker plastic and sealing mechanisms that do not film flimsy or easily breakable. 
  • Size: Chances are only some of what you plan on storing is the same size. With this in mind, Coca says it is smart to find vacuum storage bags with different size options. This way, you can purchase larger bags for blankets and coats and smaller bags for shirts and skirts. 
  • Vacuum method: Some vacuum storage bags allow you to attach your vacuum hose to remove the air, but most come with a portable hand pump, which can be more convenient. It is usually a proprietary vacuum attachment, meaning that once you go with one brand, you’re locked in, so you’ll want to make sure replacement bags are easy to find, says Nick Valentino, vice president of market operations at Bellhop Atlanta Movers . We prioritized vacuum bags that come with a pump.

You can also choose between a 3-, 4-, 6- and 20-pack of bags. All bags from Spacesaver come with a triple-sealed valve, are made from tear-resistant plastic and come with a hand pump.

While Ziploc may be best known for its sandwich bags, it also makes space-saving bags for clothes storage, and Tanaka says many of its clients are fans. They have a variety of sizes, including hanging bags, large bags and jumbo bags. This set is intended for travel and fits nicely in a carry-on suitcase, according to the brand. You get two bags in a pack and each bag can fit three to four pieces of clothing. According to Ziploc, these bags reduce the volume of whatever you put inside by up to 75%. Unlike other options, these don’t come with a hand pump. Instead, after putting your clothes inside, seal the bag and press and roll the bags to remove excess air.

Consider these XXL vacuum storage bags to store large items, like winter coats and blankets. Tanaka recommends them, and the set comes with three bags that measure 47 inches by 35 inches, plus a bonus large bag that is 32 inches by 21 inches. You also get sticker labels to label whatever you are storing inside easily. The bags are made from durable plastic and can be compressed by attaching your vacuum’s hose to the bag’s valve.

The bags have a double zipper to keep them tightly closed and come with a hand pump to compress them. These bags have a 4.4-star average rating from over 52,500 reviews on Amazon and are available in multiple sizes and sets.

The closet in my bedroom is very small, so I store my winter wardrobe in the spring and summer and vice versa. These compression bags from Amazon have been a game changer. I like the medium size, which can fit about eight sweaters. They come in a pack of five, enough to store what I need between seasons. The bags come with a hand pump, but you can also use the hose on your vacuum to suck the air out. They have a sealed valve and the plastic feels durable. I store the filled bags under my bed and they take up next to no space.

Hefty Shrink-Pak Vacuum Storage Bags

Hefty doesn’t just make trash bags — they also offer these vacuum storage bags. You can purchase these bags in a medium size (good for tops and jeans), large (good for sweaters), extra large (good for blankets or coats) and jumbo (specifically made to hold two pillows and a comforter). The bags, which have a 4.2-star average rating from over 2,220 reviews on Amazon, can be compressed in two ways—you can roll them to push air out or attach a vacuum hose to the triple-sealed valve.

Gongshi Vacuum Storage Bags

This set has a 4.4-star average rating from over 19,550 reviews and includes 12 vacuum bags — three jumbos, three large, three medium and three small. The set comes with a hand pump, but the valve on the bags can also work with any vacuum hose attachment. The bags are made from a thick plastic meant to last and that will keep moisture and mildew out, according to the brand.

select These bestselling Amazon products make organizing your closet actually enjoyable

If you are new to the idea of vacuum storage bags, you may need some pointers to make the most of them. Here is what experts suggest keeping in mind: 

  • They’re great for bulky items: They are most useful for storing bulky items like sweaters, blankets, and seasonal clothing — the compression feature reduces the volume and amount of space these things take up, says Tanaka. That said, you can still use them for less bulky items. Say you have tons of baby onesies or bandanas you want to store and not lose track of. A vacuum storage bag can help you keep them all together in one place. 
  • Only store clean clothes: Make sure you are only storing clean items. If you have dirty or stinky items, removing the air from the bag can put pressure on them, intensifying any odor or causing the dirt to sink in deeper, according to our experts. 
  • Don’t store items in them for too long: On average, try not to store items for more than six months in a vacuum storage bag. Longer than that, your clothes may lose shape or develop creases and wrinkles that are difficult to remove.
  • Store your bags correctly: One of the major benefits of a vacuum storage bag is that it can protect clothes from humidity, mildew and dirt, says Coca. If you store them in a hot or humid place with a leak in your bag, you may introduce those elements to your clothes. Ideally, you want to store your filled bags somewhere cool and dry.

Struggling with packing efficiently? Try vacuum packing to maximize your carry-on space and fit a bit extra without the bulk!

Vacuum Seal Bags for Clothes

Written By: Laura Pulling

Table Of Contents

In recent years, I’ve traveled a lot and was always overpacking . Since being a member of team TFG, I have learned to slim down my packing (where I can!) and now I am proud to be able to travel carry-on only. 

However, sometimes you need to take a little more in your suitcase for certain activities, and many airlines now charge for checked baggage, with some fees being pretty high. Perhaps you need to take extra clothes for something sport or event-related, or to make a temporary or permanent move—everyone has their own reasons to pack a bit more! 

This is where vacuum storage bags’ come in! These impressive packing tools can more than triple the room inside your suitcase, so you can still manage to travel with just a carry-on! They’re also handy for backpacking to ensure your things don’t get wet. 

In fact, read about TFG editor-in-chief Alex’s experience using them during an international move from the UK to Playa del Carmen in this post . And compression bags can be used for more than moving or storing items; Alex also used them to pack bulky winter clothing for a snowy trip to Deer Lake in Park City, Utah. Read her entire post to find out how she packed more than usual successfully in a carryon! 

They are even super useful between trips, you can store your winter comforter and pillows, or seasonal wardrobe clothes in your closet, and barely use up any space.

We’ve checked out the best clothing vacuum bags available so you can maximize packing space for your next trip!

SpaceSaver Premium Vacuum Storage Bags

Space Saver bags are handy for maximizing your travel space in your suitcase, or for organizing your closet at home. You can get these bags in a variety of sizes to suit your needs, to store away your duvet, bed sheets, and towels, or maybe even shift between a fall/winter and spring/summer wardrobe. 

These clothes storage bags have a double-zip seal and a triple-seal turbo valve which are designed to get every last bit of air out of the bag during the suction process. Plus, these bags can be used for travel, as they have a travel pump included. Pack at home using your normal vacuum, and for your return trip, pack them and empty the air using the travel pump.

One user shares, “Bought Space Saver vacuum bags to reduce space of clothing for four people for a two-week road trip in the back of the car. Definitely made a difference and let us pack without running out of space.”

One user had a savvy packing tip, she shares, “The bags worked well and keep your clothes fresh.

VMSTR Travel Vacuum Bags With USB Electric Pump

This set of VMSTR vacuum seal storage bags has a technological advantage—it comes with a USB powered pump! Pack them and suck out the air before your trip using your traditional home vacuum cleaner, and still fit clothes in on your return journey by using the small included vacuum (which only weighs a mere four ounces!). Reviews say it’s slow but faster and more convenient than using a hand pump, or rolling air out of the bags. 

You can choose different sets for your packing suitcase , but we like the variety of the 8-pack that has two extra-large bags (18 x12.5 inch), two large (14 x 12.5 inch), two medium (12.5 x 10 inch), and two small (11 x 8.5 inch).

One user took hers to Europe, and shares, “I really like the weight of the bags, sturdy, not flimsy, and they are a good size. I also like that the USB cord on the pump is a decent length.”

Gonex Compression Space Saving Travel Bags​

These Gonex compression storage bags are a twist on our usual favorite packing cubes . They are made from lightweight, rip-stop nylon that is super soft and stretchy. You pack them, like packing cubes, but then they have a nifty, durable zipper around the outside that allows you to compress them further and squeeze out any excess air. 

The large set comes with a variety of bag sizes, with the multi-pack having: one large (15 x 15 inches), one medium (12 x 9 inches), one small (10 x 7.5 inches), one smallest (8 x 6 inches), one slim (13 x 4 inches), and one laundry bag (18 x 13 inches).

One user shares, “While it’s not as much as silicone storage bags or a sealed bag with all the air pushed out, this is both better than I expected and a lot easier than the alternatives. I just finished packing for my first trip since purchasing, and I was pleasantly surprised both at how much I could fit in these bags and how little space it took up.”

TRIPPED Compression Packing Travel Storage Bags

These cute TRIPPED clothing bags for travel are perfect for getting ready for your next trip! With a double zip design, they work similarly to packing cubes , but allow you to also remove excess air to squeeze your clothes into the smallest space possible.

In a set, you get two large storage bags (14 x 10 inches), two small (10 x 7 inches), one slim (4.5×12.5 inches), and a laundry/shoe bag (18 x 13.5 inches).

One user raves, and calls these the ‘best cubes on the market’ as they “ make your packing experience less dramatic, and handles all the issues of a long or short trip.” They come in a variety of designs and colors, too!

SUITEDNOMAD Vacuum Compression Bags Set

Sometimes family trips or a bigger trip calls for something more robust. The SUITEDNOMAD set has been voted by many as the best compression packing bags for families, long-term backpackers, and carry-on suitcase travelers. 

The six-piece set comes with small, medium, and large sized compression travel bags for packing , a laundry bag, a bag for toiletries, and a bonus luggage tag (suhweet!). You can also get just the three-piece set if you have less to pack. 

One user bought both sets and had this to say, “ I ordered a three-piece and a six-piece set of these cubes. I plan on using them for an upcoming trip to Europe. I practiced packing my international carry-on bag and a second under seat bag which is compatible with European airlines. All of the clothes I’m planning to bring fit with ease. These compression cubes allowed me to fit more into my bags than I would have been able to do otherwise. Yes, I’m a fan!”

Compass Rose Packing Cubes

What’s the Difference Between Vacuum Bags, Compression Bags, and Packing Cubes?

You may be wondering, if I just want more space, why can’t I just use my packing cubes ? (And if you’re savvy, you’ll obviously have Compass Rose packing cubes !).

In all seriousness, let’s discuss the difference between all three so you can decide which is best to meet your needs.

Airtight storage bags vacuum air out with a device that sucks away air pockets, usually a regular vacuum or one that’s travel-sized. There are obviously no vacuum storage bags in the market that work fairly well, but to get the most out of this type of storage, a vacuuming device is a smart way to go. 

Compression bags for packing clothes have specially designed zippers and fabric that push all the air out as you pack and press clothes in, so you can fit more and maximize space in your suitcase or backpack.

Finally, packing cubes can compress clothes a bit while you’re packing but these are typically used for organizing your clothes. For example, the Compass Rose packing cubes have a color-coded and numbering system so you can know where you’ve packed everything (split by days or activities). 

There are packing cube hybrids on the market that do both (compress and organize) but ultimately, TFG readers tell us what wins is quality of the fabric, sturdy zippers that help compress and don’t break off, the flexibility to pack what’s needed and avoid baggage fees, and the ability to augment more space in their luggage.

Hopefully, knowing the differences between all three can help you decide how best to pack!

LOVE compression packing cubes – really is amazing how much easier packing is with them. I‘d never heard of them before I read about them on your blog a few years ago – thank you for that one and all the other great tips!

Thanks for the tips! I was able to travel for 6 weeks this Summer with my carry-on bag with the help of packing cubes (seriously, how did I travel without them before?!).

I love using a combination of packing cubes and the compression bags

The best vacuum storage bags make the most of your space by removing the air inside and sealing it tight. Many use a vacuum or hand pump to suck out all the air, while some travel-friendly space bags can actually be hand-pressed shut. Because of this, they're great for packing out-of-season clothes, bedding and more into small spaces like under your bed or inside your suitcase .

After consulting our in-house experts and scouring online reviews, we've rounded up the best vacuum storage bags to shop on Amazon, starting at just $8 (with fast, free shipping to boot!).

The original Spacesaver vacuum storage bags are our top pick for heavy-duty storage needs where damage protection is imperative, like cross-country moves and travel. You can use either the included hand pump or your vacuum to reduce volume by up to 80%, according to the brand. Choose from small to jumbo sizes and variety packs for all your storage needs.

Reviewers appreciate its ease of use and sturdy plastic . "I'm moving all the way across the country and was stressed out wondering how much of my clothing I could actually take with me. These Space Saver bags are a life saver!" wrote one five-star reviewer . "They are so easy to pack, zip and vacuum out the air. One of my best purchases ever here on Amazon (and I've made thousands)."

Stow bulky bedding, sweaters, pillows and more with these space-saving storage bags. You can either use the included hand pump or a standard vacuum cleaner to compress each bag and reduce volume by up to 80%, according to the brand. For under $20, this pack comes with four bag sizes to store different items: the smallest size fits six to eight sweaters while the largest fits a queen-sized bedding set.

The triple-sealed valve is designed to keep bags airtight so your items stay condensed, and the double-layered material is designed to be puncture- and scratch-resistant, making it more durable against damage. "They're strong and sturdy," one Amazon reviewer said . "They have great sizes and storage space, and they hold the seal (some for a year now)."

Skip the checked luggage line at the airport with these travel-friendly storage bags. Forté named the Ziploc Space Bag a long-standing Lab favorite. There's no need for a pump or a vacuum to take the air out — simply fill each with up to five pounds of clothing or bedding, seal it with the Ziploc slider and fold to press out the air. It also costs under $10 for a pack of two.

Since they don't require any bulky equipment, these bags are a great option for users on the go. The brand claims the bags reduce the volume of clothing and bedding by up to 75%. They're also waterproof and airtight per the brand, meaning they should help protect your items from damage caused by travel and storage.

Boasting more than 38,000 five-star reviews and counting, Amazon's #1 best-selling space saver bags claim to shrink the size of your items by up to 80%. This variety pack includes 20 bags, making them great for anyone moving houses or with lots of vacuum storage needs. The pack includes standard vacuum-sealable bags as well as travel bags that can be rolled to press out air — no pump required.

Waterproof and reusable (purported by the brand), the bags' valves and seals are designed to prevent expansion and keep moisture and debris out. "The quality of these bags is outstanding," one online shopper wrote . "I feel confident storing my clothing, bedding and other textiles knowing they are safe and well-preserved."

Whether you need to increase your under-bed storage space or condense your clothes on the go, this pack offers the most variety with six different-sized bags for all your needs . The standard bags range from pouch-sized bags for lingerie and T-shirts to extra-large bags for bedding sets and pillows . Each waterproof bag has a handy line to show you where to stop filling them, making it more intuitive to pack than other options on our list.

While it can be sealed with the included hand pump or a vacuum, we love that the travel bags can be rolled to seal out excess air sans tool if needed. "These were a game changer during our move," an Amazon reviewer wrote . "The sizes vary drastically, accommodating many different types of items from quilts to pillows as well as clothes."

Hefty is known for its durable garbage bags and freezer bags, but the brand also has a line of high-rated vacuum storage bags. Including three large and three extra-large sizes, Hefty's Shrink-Pak bags claim to be waterproof and reusable season after season, so you don't have to worry about moisture, dust or bugs ruining your items. Plus, you can simply press the air out with your hands and seal.

We love how the extra large bags have a zipper on the long side rather than the shorter top, making it easier to pack bedding supplies like pillows and comforters. Shoppers agreed, with one writing : "We just went through a very long, drawn-out move and the shrink bags have been a true lifesaver! We were able to put lots of our clothes, towels and blankets in storage while we shopped for a new house. When we finally started unpacking, everything looked exactly the way it did when it was packed!"

Outfitted with a stylish plaid print, we wouldn't mind keeping these space bags out in plain sight. And it's not just for aesthetics. Their unique woven texture provides a bit of grip to their exterior, helping them to stay in place better while stacked. The bags come in four sizes and packs of six to 26, making them great for small organization projects and large undertakings.

Plus, they compress with a vacuum or its included pump. Reviewers appreciate the variety of sizes and ease of use, too. "I love these sealable storage bags!" one shopper wrote . "The quality is fantastic, very well-made and sturdy. I really like the assortment of colors and sizes, too, so much so that I ordered a second box!"

If you need to store cumbersome items like king-sized duvets, foam cushions or dog beds , Vacwel's XXL bags offer an impressive storage capacity of 47 by 35 inches . Featuring a nylon lining for extra durability, the brand claims these bags are waterproof and protect against dirt, bugs and dust. They even come with sticker labels to easily identify stored items.

"These bags are durable and got the job done," an Amazon shopper added . "I was able to vacuum seal large comforters and sheets! Very surprised at how many bedding items that I was able to put in the bags." Note that a pump is not included, so you'll need a vacuum handy to seal these bags.

Protect your out-of-season garments and make room for new pieces with these clever hanging storage bags on Amazon. You can stash up to five pieces of clothing inside each, including coats, jackets and suits . Just place one included hanger on each rotating ring, zip it up and vacuum all the air out. The vertical storage design keeps your clothes clean and organized until you're ready to wear them again.

"I get immense joy out of packing away my winter clothes in the Taili hanging bags," an Amazon reviewer said . "[It] shrink wraps everything into compact boards ... It was very easy and effective to use."

How we chose the best vacuum storage bags

line break

With so many different options on the market, it can be difficult to determine which vacuum storage bags are worth buying. To help you find the right pick for your needs, we consulted our experts in the GH Institute Cleaning Lab and vetted customer reviews to bring you a range of vacuum storage bags that suit a variety of purposes.

How do you choose the best vacuum storage bags?

Choosing the best vacuum storage bags depends on your individual needs — do you just need to store a few seasonal sweaters, or pack up your whole house for a move? According to, the size and dimensions can help you figure out which options are right for you.

" They should be large enough to hold multiple items and be durable enough to use from year to year ," Forté says. For those who don't own a vacuum (or have one readily accessible), opt for a bag that can be rolled to compress or can be hand pumped.

What do you put in a space bag?

line break

While you might want to use your vacuum storage bag to compress bulky items like winter coats and duvets, Forté warns against vacuum-sealing down-filled items . Instead, she recommends only compressing them halfway.

"Otherwise, you risk crushing and breaking the down feathers and they may then not be as lofty or insulate as well," Forté says. Additionally, be sure not to store wet items, or you risk creating mold and causing long-term damage.

How long can you store items in a vacuum storage bag?

line break

Forté recommends using storage bags for short-term and seasonal storage . "Keep items in them too long, and you risk permanently setting creases or crushing and flattening items that are supposed to be lofty and puffy," Forte says. For best results, be sure to check the recommended storage time on your bag's instructions.

Every year, I go through the same dilemma. As the seasons change from winter to spring, I scramble to find space in my closet to accommodate the blankets and comforters that I no longer need. The bulky bedding, once crucial to my comfort during the doldrums of December and January, is now a challenge when I’m trying to store it away. 

  • Tips for Using Vacuum Storage Bags
  • How We Evaluated Vacuum Storage Bags

Maybe you’re like me and struggling to put away your winter clothes and bedding now that it’s spring. Or perhaps you’re about to travel and looking for a way to decrease the volume of clothing in your luggage . In both cases, an item like a vacuum storage bag, which can be compressed to create more space, can be a handy solution.

Vacuum storage bags are plastic bags that can be sealed airtight and then compressed, usually by using a vacuum cleaner or a pump to draw the air inside the bags out. But while they’re useful, it can be difficult for consumers to know which ones to purchase because, let’s face it, many of these vacuum storage bags look alike.

I tried out six different brands to find out which vacuum storage bags are the best. In the process, I stuffed the bags with various items, including my comforters, tablecloths, towels, and clothes, such as sweaters and puffer jackets. I ranked the bags on performance, ease of usage, durability, and additional design features. These are the ones I recommend.

Travelers Say These $23 Vacuum Seal Bags Can Fit Up to 4 Weeks’ of Clothes in a Carry-on

Find out why shoppers call these compression bags a “game-changer.”

travel vacuum storage bags

Travel + Leisure / Daisy Rodriguez

When I moved to New York City, I tried everything to pack all of my possessions with the limited amount of vessels I had. Despite my attempts at using packing cubes, sitting on my suitcase, and rolling up my clothes, nothing seemed to work. That is, until I turned to the internet and discovered the remarkable effectiveness of using vacuum seal bags for packing. 

This ingenious packing solution proved to be a true lifesaver, effortlessly fitting all of my clothes, pillows, and comforter in my car with ease. In fact, it worked so well that I even had ample space leftover to pack even more than I initially thought possible. Since then, vacuum seal bags have quickly become my go-to hack for efficiently packing virtually anything. And right now, the Hibag Vacuum Storage Bags are on sale in a 20-pack at 54 percent off for an unbeatable price of just $23 at Amazon, making it the perfect time to try this innovative storage solution for yourself. 

Hibag Vacuum Storage Bags

The Hibag Vacuum Storage Bags have also garnered more than 26,000 perfect ratings by customers gushing about these bags calling them “ perfect for travel ” and that they “ make traveling easier. ” 

While other packing solutions like packing cubes are great for organizing and maximizing space, the Hibag Vacuum Storage Bags claim to reduce space up to an astonishing 80 percent. In fact, one shopper even boasted that her daughter who is a bridal designer was able to fit “20 bridal gowns into one medium-sized suitcase” for an overseas trunk show. And bridal gowns are heavy, if that doesn’t show how much these vacuum seal bags can pack, I don’t know what will. 

Crafted with a thick yet lightweight and waterproof material, these bags are durable and rip-resistant, providing extra peace of mind while traveling. Plus, they feature dual zipper designs for even more security so your items stay safe during transit. One shopper even shared that they “haven’t had one leak,” even after using them “over and over.” 

The vacuum ports are universally compatible with any vacuum hose, allowing you to efficiently suck out the air in less than a minute. And for those traveling, they also come with a heavy duty hand pump for easy sealing on the way home. Shoppers are loving how easy these vacuum seal bags are to use, with one sharing that these bags allowed them to “travel through Europe for four weeks with just a carry-on suitcase,” and another chimed in to brag about fitting, “10 days’ worth of clothes into two medium personal items,” for herself and two children on an international trip to London. A final shopper even dubbed these compression bags as a “game changer for our vacation,” allowing them to easily take back their dirty laundry (and separate them from their clean clothes) and leave room for souvenirs. 

The Hibag Vacuum Storage Bags comes in a 20-pack that includes travel-friendly hand-roll bags that don’t require a vacuum to remove the air, as well as small, medium, large, jumbo, and jumbo-plus bags for even more storage and packing possibilities. I’ve first-hand seen the wonders of these vacuum seal bags. They allowed me to condense roughly eight large suitcases of clothes, pillows, and comforters into seven vacuum seal bags that could fit in my car’s trunk with ease. And now, they allow me to confidently travel with just a carry-on to avoid checked fees wherever I go. 

For a limited time, you can score the Hibag Vacuum Storage Bags for just $23, the lowest price we’ve seen all year. But, if you’re looking for more efficient packing options, check out these other great finds that Amazon shoppers and travelers also love.

At some point, we have all turned finding room to store and organize all of our belongings into a game of Tetris.

How to Choose the Right Vacuum Storage Bag

Vacuum Storage Bag Features

Below are some important features to look for when finding a trusty vacuum storage bag.

  • Double-Zip Seal and Triple-Seal Turbo Valve: When these two work together, you can be certain no air comes out, no air comes in and bags stay completely sealed.
  • Stay-On Clips: Although not a necessity for a high-quality vacuum storage bag, these clips are very helpful and will prevent the clips from falling off the zipper or getting lost.
  • Hand Pump: Many vacuum storage bags come with an included hand pump. This is helpful if you don't have a vacuum handy, like when you're traveling.

Vacuum Storage Bag Sizes

Below is a breakdown of common sizes for vacuum storage bags. Each description is meant to give you an idea of what items each size can accommodate. Be sure to check the dimensions before purchase, as precise capacity may vary by brand.

  • Pouch Size: Underwear, Shirts, Lingeries
  • Carry-On Size/Travel Roll-Up: 2 Shirts, 4 Sweaters, 1 Jacket, Underwear
  • Small: 6-8 Sweaters
  • Medium: 8-10 Sweaters, 1-2 Winter Coats
