Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a huge disappointment! I've used the Glad ForceFlex 30 gal size bags in my can for years and until today have always pleased with the performance. Bags always fit and I've never had a failure. My can is a somewhat standard Rubbermaid Brute 32 gallon. I've been using it and Glad bag liners for over 10 years. Now however your new Dual Defense bags DON'T FIT MY CAN ANYMORE! Generally I'm a fan of brand loyalty as I dislike change. I shouldn't have to use a contractor or lawn and leaf bag for this standard residential application. Nor should I need to migrate to a completing brand. I am SO SORRY that I bought the large box of 50 but I PROMISE I'll NEVER do that again. I'm sure I'll find a use for the other 49 bags in the box but I'll also find a bag manufactured by a competing brand that suits my need. I'll also be looking to replace any and all other items listed under the Clorox label that I use regularly. Goodbye to Kingsford, Pine-Sol, Hidden Valley, Tilex, SOS and 409.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible!!! We've gotten 2 boxes of these, in case the first was a 'lemon'. It wasn't. These bags tear EXTREMELY easily, they do not have the forceflex stretch that they claim to have, and the "garbage juice" leaks from all parts of the bags. We live in the basement and have to carry the trash upstairs and through the house to get to the garage. It's absolutely disgusting! Very disappointed with these flimsy bags.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing Trash Bag These bags are like paper. I thought with dual defense they would be thicker than the forceflex ones I normally use. Now I am stuck with a large container of them and have to use them. They don't even stand up to pulling them out of the trash can and they rip.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What happened to quality? We had used the original ForceFlex at our resort for years. We swore by it and were willing to pay the higher cost to get a great product. Now unfortunately all we do is swear at these new bags. We buy trash bags 6 boxes at a time. We went through the first box thinking that it must have been a bad batch, wrong. The kitchen bags you make are stronger than these. I am very disappointed in the fact that you as a company are willing to reduce your standards to such a level. Please let me know if you ever bring back too original ForceFlex. Until then, I will be looking for something that works. Maybe I should try Hefty.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do Not Buy I purchased a box of 70, 33 Gal bags from BJ's. I have used Glad for years and had very few issues. This box I have used 2 so far and thought they were very soft and should be even better, I was wrong for making that assumption. The box said "NEW" so I thought improved, Wrong again. I partially filled the first bag with shredded paper, about 3/4 full, maybe 20-25 pounds. I carried the bag to the garage yesterday. Today I noticed the bag was split along the side seam and thought it might have been moved or something and tore, but the seam just came apart. I then took the second bag and slipped the first one carefully inside, with no issues (bag is not overstuffed) and when I lifted the second bag up to have the bag sit on the bottom of the new bag the second one split along BOTH seams. I will try to attach a picture so you can see, it is not full, not stretched or anything. Very disappointed. I attempted 4 times to attach a photo but all I got was an error message, works just like the bags.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible product I agree with the other reviewers. These bags are not strong at all. They rip when you put things in them and the drawstrings rip right out when you try to tighten them. They use two layers of plastic but they are both thin and will tear before they "flex". Note that their response to all the other reviews is that they are sorry and invite reviewers to call them. Just a canned response. Glad - there's no reason for us to call you. Your product is totally inferior. What we would like to see in your response is what are you going to do to correct the problem. Sure hope I can still find the old black flex bags that worked so well!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from These bags suck. I've used 30 gallon forceflex bags since they came out. almost never had a tear through. My wife bought these new dual defense bags and every one has had several tear throughs. I mean you can read through the plastic it's so thin. The only reason I gave them one star is there is no provision for no stars. We have been unable to find the original black ForceFlex bags since these came out. I hope you saved a ton of money making these cheapo's because if other customers have the same experiences I have you'll be loosing them as customers. You had a great product and have really screwed it up this time. Sincerely Pat Myers
