I liked the Reynold's Handi-vac ... at first ... till the batteries ran out ... almost immediately.
It is so poorly designed I still cannot get the battery cover screwed back in.
The Ziploc vacuum is just a manual pump ... like those for bicycle tires. It costs about $3.50. Reynolds costs about $8 ... with frequent battery refills. It seems to do the same job as the Reynolds system. The bags are about the same price
The Ziploc pump is half the size of the Reynold's Handi-vac, making it easier to store.
Unfortunately the Ziploc pump won't work on the Reynolds bags ... I tried.
Ziploc is silent too. No Reynolds leaf-blower roar that scares pets and wakes the household.
Can't tell yet how long the seal will last ... that is the other problem with Reynolds ... they are short term ... eventually the seal leaks.
