There are other reviews on O.P. Saks/Aloksaks pertaining to the bear-can size and the food storage and protection issues those bags raise. This review concerns Aloksaks generally. The main problem with Aloksaks is that they don't close securely if you have anything of significant volume inside them. A supposedly waterproof bag is worthless if it doesn't shut or stay closed. I tried to use one for my first-aid kit, but many times when I opened my pack, the kit had opened and bandaids, etc., had spilled out. Now I use a store-bought quart-size freezer bag, which works great, and is waterproof (I tested it by submerging it in my sink with air inside. It is watertight).
The other big downside is the price of these bags compared to store-bought freezer bags. The Aloksaks are way too expensive. The only upside with these bags is the variety of sizes available, especially the smaller sizes, which can be handy. Store-bought freezer bags, as far as I can tell, come only in quart and gallon sizes. Overall, I'm disappointed with Aloksaks.
