Moving? Traveling? Tight on storage space? Yes, yes, and yes? You need vacuum storage bags – stat. (You probably need these must-have closet storage solutions too.) Vacuum storage bags are the easiest, most affordable way to decrease the size of hefty items, like winter coats and backup bedding — and the best vacuum seal storage bags can reduce that bulk by up to 80%.

Squish extra bedding down or squeeze another few outfits into your suitcase with these vacuum storage bags, all made from thick, durable plastic. They come in various sizes, which you can buy in sets with one uniform size or a variety pack with multiple sizes. Treat your storage bags well and you’ll be able to use them over and over, trip after trip, winter after winter.

Many vacuum storage bags come with a hand pump if you want to tough out a bicep workout, but we recommend saving those for travel situations. Instead, look for vacuum storage bags that can be used with any standard vacuum hose attachment to compress them way quicker, way easier, and way less sweaty.

Scroll on for eight of the highest-rated, most raved-about vacuum storage bags for clothes. You can thank us later when your linen closet isn’t closing in on you.

Best Vacuum Bags For Clothes

Comforters and blankets beware: you’re no match for these storage bags. Scroll through the 12,000+ positive Amazon reviews, which confirm that. Featured here in the jumbo size, you’ll be able to stash a bunch of out-of-season items, but there are various other sizes available from medium to multi-size combo packs. The extra thick and flexible  material promises to be ultra durable. We particularly love the cute, colorful plaid patterns, and if you opt for a combo pack, you get a different color for each size to help you decipher what is in which bag. They’re compatible with any standard vacuum cleaner hose, and also include a small hand pump that’s perfect for traveling. This Amazon reviewer breaks down the six reasons she likes this brand over other vacuum storage bags: “1) The colors printed on the bags make each size easy to find in or out of the box. 2) The vacuum ‘button’ on the bags has a screw-on lid and does not leak without the lid on it. 3) The hand pump screws into the vacuum button so it doesn’t pull away unknowingly. Also, I can choose to use my floor vacuum or the hand pump. 4) I can fill the bags and then ‘vacuum’ them down. Other brands have no vacuum button and you have to roll the bags to shrink. 5) The ‘slider tab’ used to help seal the bags is large enough to easily grab and seal both ‘zippers’ at the same time without problems. And finally, 6) These bags are plenty sturdy to use again and again and to fold over and over when not filled.”
