Ezy Dose Pill Pouches on 09/25/2011 09:44:26 MDT Print View

I recently bought a package of Ezy Dose Pill Pouches and am finding them quite useful for carrying small things (e.g. pills). Fifty of these small ziploc type bags weigh about 1 ounce. I bought mine at a Safeway pharmacy. They were on a rack with pill boxes and similar items.

Here's more info:

I've been using these for a long time.

For food, I carry seasonings or chili paste in them. This is what I use them for most, especially for the chili paste to go in ramen/noodles.

In my FA kit, I carry pills in them.

In my firestarting kit, I have some tinder in one. (I use sticks of jute twine dipped in paraffin; they fit nice in these pouches)

I stopped using them since the ziplock thingy would eventually rip.

I like mine for the above reasons and toothpaste also spices,salt, pepper and for fish lemon pepper and grillmate seasonings the tops do like to tear off but they are light and a couple extra are worth packing

>> I stopped using them since the ziplock thingy would eventually rip.

I've had this problem, too. Thankfully, it's never resulted in catastrophic failure (ugly mess in a pack).

Did you find a better option?

Ken, the only thing I was using them for was medications. Since I only take a few different meds (tylenol, ibuprofen, benadryl) I throw them all in the smallest pill container I can find and call it a day : ).

If I were using them for spices, maybe I would add packing tape to the periphery to prevent failure, or be more careful in opening the ziplock.

EzyDose Pill Bags on 09/25/2011 11:30:09 MDT Print View

I recently bought a new supply of these from my local pharmacy and was disappointed to find they were of a lighter weight plastic than the ones I've had before. I never had a problem with the heavier bags zip lock ripping but I think the current lighter ones will have that issue. Like with anything a little care is in order. I do like the size, especially for carrying pills--hmmm, that's what they're for anyway.

+1 Here!

I use them to hold a book of matches & fire starters, Advil's and spices for cooking. I have never had problems w/ the zip-lock closure.

I bought an assortment (100 of each) 2 mil "ziplocks"- came w/ 2x2, 2x3, 3x3, 3x4 and 3x5- never had a problem w/ the seals- far from bombproof, but for meds, matches, tinder, spices, etc they are very handy

Tiny ziplocks on 09/25/2011 15:26:52 MDT Print View

You can buy many different sizes of these small ziplock bags at your local crafts store. They'll usually be somewhere near the beads. I use them for pills and many other small items. No trouble with the zipper on these.

These are great, best way to organize pills I've found, and I'm sure they're useful for spices and foodstuffs as well. Put a few of these in a slightly bigger ziplock along with bandaids/etc for a very compact first aid kit. Sure beats using those mini bottles. :)

If you want to go even smaller on 08/06/2012 06:59:59 MDT Print View

I don’t know how comfortable folks are here about walking into head shops, but I finally found the smallest zip-lock bags I’ve ever seen. I was told before you could find them in a jewelry shop, but my local head shop was the first place I’ve been able to secure these 1 1/2” x 1 ½” baggies. The Marlboro Red kid working the front counter told me they were called “gram bags”. I decided to go with the red bulldog logos. It was either that or the 8-ball, or the classic naked woman silhouette dotted on the outside. I paid $6.00 for a pack of 100. I use them for pills, dry spices, fire starter, etc…

Mini Zips

This is the only place I’ve been able to find them, but maybe Anna will follow this up with an 8 year old BPL thread, or a link to someone selling them on Ebay.

There's nothing wrong with smoking weed, but to some there is. Nice find.

Been there, done that... I still enjoy walking into a quality head/pot shop from time to time though.

These were a pretty good find. However, more recently, the company has switched to a very light weight plastic. The old ones eventually ripped as someone above noted; the new version tends to rip the first time you unzip them.

arbitrary size zip bags on 07/07/2013 23:01:16 MDT Print View

If you have a vacuum bag sealer, you can make any size you want out of regular zip bags

>"If you have a vacuum bag sealer, you can make any size you want out of regular zip bags"

I was pretty sure that was true, but didn't want to say since I'd never done it. We are, as Alaskans, are statutorially required to have 2 operating plus one inoperable vac-packer at all times.

Plan ahead and you can make 2 to 4 out of a single, larger ziplock. And you can choose between sandwich-bag, regular- or freezer-weight bags.

For stuff I DON'T plan on using (first aid supplies, the extra backup toilet paper, or fire-starting supplies (in my life jacket while boating and flying in small planes), I actually vac-pack them. Makes it small, waterproof and the material is tougher than ziplock bags.

I don't know how well the thinner bags work, might just make a mess

Freezer bags - you have to let them sit there to cool a moment

You have to play with it a little, not really designed for those bag

the bags that come with it work better
