Space Bags®

The Space Bag® is a revolutionary vacuum-sealed storage system that reduces volume and increases protection. It is ideal for storing comforters, blankets, pillows, sweaters, patio cushions, and other garments. Simply pack the bag with clean, dry items, remove the air from the bag using a regular household vacuum (not included) and store the bag away. The system is easy and simple to use, and the bags can be used over and over again. Because there's no air, there are no insects, dust, mildew, moisture, musty odors or discoloration. See more product details below.

  • Reduces the volume of your soft-goods by up to 75%
  • Easily access stored items through the zip-seal closure
  • Ideal for underbed storage or on deep upper shelves in closets
  • The vacuum shown is not available at The Container Store®

Good storage solution We use space bags to store children's clothes in the attic, between children. After trying a few different things, these have been a good solution for us. They're easier for my husband to carry up and down the pull-down stairs, and we haven't had any problems with moths eating the clothes or clothes coming down smelling funny. I also like that I can place labels in the clear bags, making it easy for my husband to find all the "3-6 month boy clothes", for instance, since he's the one up there looking for them! The attics here in Texas get really hot, and we haven't had any problems. I will say that air gets into the bags, at some point (even in cool weather), so the vacuum-sealing aspect doesn't "hold water" after a short period of time. But we don't mind that. The vacuum sealing makes it easier for my husband to carry all the bags up to the attic, I think, but he doesn't seem to mind carrying them down when they're not rock-solid.... By the way, when The Container Store puts them on sale, the price is fantastic; stock up! April 27, 2012
Some Work, Some Don't I was very excited to use these bags, mostly to store quilts and blankets. While some of the bags worked for me, others did not. The ones that didn't work had slow leaks - some that I could hear and others that were not noticeable until a few minutes later when the bags filled back up with air. Needless to say, I ended up making several trips back to the store to exchange the bags that didn't work for ones that did work. The sales people were all very helpful, but I would have been much happier if the original bags I purchased worked correctly. April 29, 2014
Multipurpose Storage Option We move frequently, and these are great for for condensing initial weeks of housekeeping essentials (towels, linens, pillows, clothing variety) into an already stuffed SUV. If storing bags on a closet shelf you may want to invest in Solid Shelf Dividers (Item # 461090) and place the bags vertically to take advantage of unused height in your closet. And if you go that far, you may want to label the exterior side of the bag for quick searches. They are also good for seasonal storage, though after a week everything is irretrievably wrinkled and the wrinkles have to be washed out. I avoid storing items I need at a moment's notice, like guest towels. July 25, 2010
Wish I could recommend these but I can't Bought two boxes of two each; two of the four have a micro-tear somewhere I can't see that lets in air. The concept is good but the execution is very unreliable. Also, the picture on the box of the fluffy comforter flattened like a pillowcase is not a realistic representation of how flat things actually get. The vacuumed bags are not perfectly flat either -- they're the contours of whatever you put in and shrink, and unless everything is PERFECTLY smooth it is going to be lumpy. This makes them very hard to stack. July 26, 2011

We do not recommend Space Bags® for storage of down-filled items. The vacuum created in the Space Bag® can break the feathers ruining the resiliency and loft of the item.

The Combo Pack of three Space Bags® includes: one Medium (18" x 22-1/2"), one Large (22" x 34") and one X-Large (26-1/2" x 39-1/2").
A couple of important guidelines should be observed when storing items in our Space Bags®. Fiber-filled items such as pillows and comforters should be removed from the bag about twice a year and fluffed to preserve their loft. We do not recommend our Space Bags® for storage of down-filled items. The vacuum created in the Space Bag® can break the feathers ruining the resiliency and loft of the item.
