I wanna give this 5 stars because of the price of the bags (that part was good). The bags were pretty effective, they held together pretty well and long enough to get to the curb. But, out of the 6 packs of 5 that I bought, about 2 of the bags in each pack were defective. When I unfolded them, it was stuck together and the bottom was folded over and unusable. It could have been a bad batch but they are cheap.
