ForceFlex® Dual Defense Large Bags is rated 1.2380952380952381 out of 5 by 21.
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

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fixed what wasn't broke These are, well, trash. Far too thin, super easy to poke holes in with just fingers if I handle them wrong. An expensive mistake. If I could give no stars I would have.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from One of Glad's great failures I have been a Glad trash bag buyer for 30 years. I very much miss the bags of years past, when they were green and durable and in fact have one box left that I refuse to use! But I digress. These dual defense bags are just awful. I bought them as soon as they hit the shelf in my local store thinking these might be something great. No so. They feel very thin and tear quite easily, with little more than the usual kitchen trash. I really liked the Large Kitchen 30 gal. bags they came out with a few years ago. I have a couple boxes of those left to, but don't use them. Anyway, I am not sure what is happening with the Glad product planners, but please bring back your durable, dependable bags. I only buy the non force flex black bags from Glad now.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad bags I bought a box of the 30 gallon trash bags and the drawstring was broken on all of them....
