No inlet into bag
There was a manufacturing defect with the VF3502 bags I purchased. The was no actual hole into the bag behind the cardboard collar or if there were perforations they were too strong to allow the first bag layer to open when the collar was pressed onto the inlet tube inside the vacuum drum - pressing any harder would have torn the cardboard collar off the expensive bag. I ended up using scissors to cut the necessary hole into the bag.

    Not for fine dust
    Using these bags for fine dust, like concrete cutting and grinding, causes the seams at the ends of the bags to come undo and blow out. Bot after 3 days of grinding, but only 10 minutes. Absolute mess when the bag busts open inside a 6hp vac and completely clogs the filter. Someone needs to design a bag that actually works and doesn't cost $10 each!

        Combined it with a Gore CleanStream filter
        I can see how the bag could get ripped pressing the cardboard collar onto the inlet tube. I started by loosening the center punched area before sliding it on. I'm combining the two filters in a Ridgid HD1400 so that I cut down on my clean up. I'm hoping that the bag holds up to the debris I throw at it. I have had other brand bags explode during use in smaller vacs but it's gotta be better then doing the clean up I'm used to with this one. Giving it four stars because of the potential of ripping the bag while attaching it to the inlet tube.

          RIDGID Vacuum Bag 100% Failure
          I am working on a large patio tile project that involves grinding of old thinset. I used a Rigid vaccum with Rigid brand vacuum bags and filter, Duststopper separator from Home Depot. 100% bag failure at the seams every time within 10 minutes. See pictures attached. These are way too expensive to replace every 10 minutes not including the inconvenience of having to clean up the filter the bags are supposed to protect. I went through 8 bags and every bag failed same place within approximately the same time frame. I would not recommend these bags to anyone with a project requiring vacuum and containment of dust.

            Great idea, big design flaw. DIY fix, see pic
            This bag is exactly what I needed to grind carpet glue off of a concrete floor. Without this bag the filter will clog immediately. My first bag worked as expected. My next three all popped barely less than 1/4 way through. Same each time, the whole seam on one side wide open. This added considerable amount of time to my job as I need to clean the shopvac and the filter. I couldn't stop my project so the next 2 bags I stapled each of the ends up the seam and it worked. Based on the comments this appears to be a design flaw that has not been addressed.

              These filter bags do not fit the vacuum I bought....
              These filter bags do not fit the vacuum I bought. The website and the package on the bags say they fit the model vacuum I have, but they do not! If you look at the picture, you will see a curved flange that is attached to the place the filter bag is supposed to attach to....the bag won’t go over that..the vac does work without a filter though.

              I like them and have bought a few of them...
              I like them and have bought a few of them but some of the bags have failed while using them when they are less than half full. They work a lot better than just a filter when vacuuming fine dust from Sheetrock or sanding.

              Bags bust in vacuum
              Bags come apart at the seems while in the vacuum. For basically $10 a bag (which is ridiculous for a glorified coffee filter) i would expect a lot more. I have bought these several times and always the same results. Buy a different brand.
