"This product held up to the task"
I have a habit of using products for reasons other than what they're intended for. I needed a very strong garbage bag to aid in moving my fish aquarium (40gal) to my new apartment. I chose Glad ForceFlex Extra Strong (and black) because I needed a dark environment for my fish (to keep them calm during the move) and bags strong enough to withstand over 100 pounds of water and 14 fish. To be safe I lined a picnic cooler with these bags (double layered to be safe) and it worked perfectly. I also used these bags to transport the gravel for the aquarium. I also doubled these bags (just to be safe) and was successfully able to transport my 40+ pounds of gravel. After this experience I will always choose this brand of garbage bags.
"Worked Well for Lawn Clean Up"
I decided to give the ForceFlex Strong bags a try. They are a bit smaller than than the contractor bags I typically buy making them a tad easier to handle while still holding a lot of trash. I saw no difference in performance when used for grass clippings, leaves, twigs and garden debris. They are overkill for regular household or kitchen garbage. The Strong bags were less expensive than the contractor bags and I think a better value. I would buy them again.
