I picked these up while shopping for a weekend clean up mission around the house and yard. I bought this brand because it was the largest bags and largest count per box available at the time. One of the first things I noticed is I could shove two of my normal kitchen bags full into this bag with room left over. My other reason for liking these so much is that the draw strings really stay in the bags, most all the other brands I have used the drawstring rip out at the first sign of stress. just like anything else we use in our household we tend to abuse it very badly, and I can say they have passed the King_Hostile product abuse tests with flying colors. I most certainly would recommend these to anyone, as since finding these I have bought no other large trash bag type product.
