    The one I bought at a Dollar Tree store has a screw cap. I put a down puffy jacket in and squeezed out much of the air. Next day it was still compacted, so not much air came back in. I store down items fully lofted but this bag could be useful while hiking as Leiavoia demonstrates.

    I've had an inflatable pillow that didn't survive sub freezing temps.

    I'm very curious to see your testing on durability for sub freezing temps. Not too many of those here in Florida, but seems like during HangCon in January, there is at least one night...
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you

    I've gone back to my original bag method because I can get more in the pack that way although I pay about an ounce penalty to do it.The vacuum bags are still an awesome piece of kit though.

    Update for Canadian buyers: Dollarama has these!

    The zipper lock is a bit weak. When I put my quilt in and tried to compress, I blew out the zipper, the first two times. I found that folding it over and holding while smooshing the bag was the solution.

    My local only had Large (19"x33") and X-large (even bigger). I had kinda been hoping for smaller, so I could get two: one for top quilt and one for sleep clothes...more importantly, one for head pillow and one for knees. The Large is so big that I should really stuff all my wanna-be-dry items in one.

    Also, I weighed it and compared to my trash compactor bag. The (Large) vacuum bag is 10 grams less than the (35"x25") compactor bag. Plus I save the weight and volume of my old camp pillow.
