I used these bags during demo cleanup of a bedroom renovation. They are as tough as they say, but I don't feel they are as tough as the Ultra Flex Hefty trash bags. That being said, I actually TRIED to poke my index finger through the side of the bag 10 times. My finger did poke through 3 times, but 7 times the bag just stretched around my finger...it was weird, unlike other trash bags I have used in the past that don't stretch, but just rip. I also tried to poke through with a board that was squarely cutoff, and not sanded, so the corners and edges were sharp. I noticed that the bag stretched around the board, and also gives you a visual feedback prior to breaking and allowing "poke-through." The bag becomes transparent in places where it is being stretched, so if you are paying attention, you can see that the bag is approaching the failure point. I believe that these bags are designed to stretch to absorb the forces applied to them, rather than be strong to resist the forces. That means that these bags can be overstuffed to a degree due to the designed "give" (NOT an elastic-like stretch, as it does not return to its original shape...it becomes permanently deformed and weaker where stretched), whereas stronger bags resist expansion, and therefore cannot have more than the designed volume stuffed into them.

Usually my mom and I swear by hefty but these bags don't even hold her yard clippings! 30 gal tells you nothing about how much it can hold and when you need a bag to withstand a good amount of weight but the slightest touch rips it you get frustrated very easily. Needless to say I don't think we will be buying this particular bag again.
I bought this box which had some bags with the side out. The bottom was closed and one side. At the top the drawstring was still in place.
I bought a box of 56 and they all have holes in them there not as strong that way they don't hold much in them they rip looks like roller was hot and melted holes in them code numberis764 last three number can't see it all
