Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 46 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Requires some tricks to prevent leaks They're cheaper than the triple layer filter so I figured I'd try them to help keep the filter clean even though I saw a video review that showed dust got through. Dust and larger particles got through on my first try, and I see from other reviews that this is common. When installing the bag it's impossible to see whether the lower part of the seal is in the proper place (between two ridges) unless you stick your head deep in the drum and try moving the filter out of the way, which I didn't try, or use an inspection mirror, which I tried the second time I vacuumed with the bag. First attempt: I installed the bag, being careful not to stretch the rubber seal more than necessary to fit it over the plastic tube. It looked sealed per the instructions, and maybe it was sealed all around, but after vacuuming I found dust on the filter, dust and larger particles in the drum, and saw that the bag became unsealed and had a clump of dirt coming out of the seal. It make me wonder whether the bags holds ANY fine dust. Second attempt: I pushed the cardboard piece that has the seal way further on the tube than you'd think is necessary. I over pushed in my first attempt too, but I knew I had to try something else this time. Then, to see whether the seal was in the proper place (between two ridges) I pushed the cardboard out a little. It looked good. Then I used an inspection mirror to check the bottom. The seal was in the proper place there too. I vacuumed for a little while, probably picking up slightly less than the first time. Then I opened the lid and the seal still looked good. Either the bag, vacuum, or instructions should be changed, but if you do what I did in my second attempt (see the photos to see how it should look) it may work out. October 31, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bags unusable on some 12 and 16 gallon Rigid vacuums This website described these dust bags as fitting Rigid 12 and 16 gallon vacuums. Since I have one of each, a 12 and a 16 gallon Rigid vacuum, it seemed like a good investment. What this website doesn't say is that the dust bags will only fit those Rigid vacuums which have the intake port on the body of the vacuum. Both my vacuums have the intake port on the lid. So I wasted my time and money making this purchase. Hard to rate an item that was unusable to me. Hopefully Home Depot will upgrade their website description of these bags to warn people that they do not fit all 12 and 16 gallon Rigid vacuums. July 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by extends the life of my cylindrical filter I use these bag along with a "drywall" rated cylindrical filter. Prior to using these bags, I would have to stop sanding and clean the drywall filter every 15 minutes of sanding. I use a Porter Cable 7800 drywall sander. Since I started using the bags, I no longer need to clean the filter. Now all I need to do is throw away the bag full of drywall dust. Note: the bag will be heavy when filled with drywall dust.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by How did I ever live without these? Before I started using these bags in my vac I would have to clean the filter daily or even more often. I would begin losing suction almost as soon as I began vacuuming . With a bag in place I can collect sawdust from my table saw or vacuum drywall dust for days or even weeks at a time without cleaning the filter with very little loss of suction. After a large project I just unhook and dump the bag into a plastic trash bag, lightly clean the filter and I am ready to make 16 more gallons of sawdust. These bags work on other brands of vacs as well as long as the suction outlet is located on the body of the vacuum and not the top with the exhaust. February 9, 2014
