Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Sand bags,fast flood.
Used only for sand and gravel. 3 years later still in good shape, all filled and storage under my deck. They stick and stick tight (at least initially) the longevity of these is good as long they're covered and out of direct UV light.
I scratch my head about why people say they are paper thin (just like a Walmart bag). I didn't puncture a one, even when moving them bare handed and having to dig my fingers in.
I also didn't have a problem with the seal. I filled all the bags I needed. Not a speck of sand on the seal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AllePat Hold much more than just sand.
I used these when I had to move lots of garage/workshop stuff. Held many boxes of screw, nails, nuts and bolt etc.
Very strong, loose drills and other sharp items no problem. No holes.
Clear enough to see contents, can lable with Sharpie.
Great for handyman, DIY Guys who need to keep "stuff" seperated.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PartTimeDIYer Ok for the money
I would reco the product for limited use. I needed a manageable way to transport about a cubic yard of soil so using small bags with 30-40 lbs sounded doable. But be careful with these bags...have to handle them gently else they can easily rip from the side seams. If you lift and gently put bags down, you should be fine, but if you lift and somewhat drop them down roughly, even if only dropping them from a few inches up, they can split at the seams. also, don't overfill the bags, reco 30lbs max even though it says it can handle 45lbs. Line your vehicle with tarp in case it breaks! But they are economical...

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Zman22 These bags are not good!
I used 4 of the bags and they ALL split at the seam. I still have the other 46 in my garage. Pretty worthless bags for putting sand in!

First bag ripped at the side seam when putting sand in. Second bag got the sand in, sealed the bag, put on the ground and side seam split.

Bought these several years ago to fill sand bags for fitness purposes (enclosed in a vinyl covering & not subject the the ements or constant wear and tear) and they performed as advertised-no problems with closure or tearing. My intentions were not as critical as other reviewers and considering you get what you pay for, the value was excelllent when the average cost for 50 bags was 36 cent each!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by sparkks better available but ok in a pinch, short term
Bags are strong enough to take the weight and to be placed without tearing. They are a clear plastic like a sandwich bag. Where they fail is the adhesive strip that is supposed to seal the bag. Maybe 5 percent fail to hold.
That's ok if you position the seal against something that might help support the seal or reduce the leaking of sand.
For my use I found a traditional mesh bag with that tied at the top. The material was far stronger and the seal permanent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bronzek Serves the purpose for which it was intended
I have used the sand bags to support cinder-block walls around an equipment shed, built into a hillside. They work fine to provide a solid, stable barrier between the structure and dirt covering the project. Plastic is fine for this sort of project, since it is then further covered permanently with dirt and thus not subject to the sun, rain or other elements that might normally rot or desintigrate standard burlap or fiberglass reinforced sandbag material. Easy to fill, easy to work with. I would recomend this product to others. KB
