Stasher Storage Bag Review

  • Eco-friendly
  • Reusable
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Microwave safe
  • Freezer safe
  • Pinch-press seal locks out air

Cons:

  • Initial cost is more expensive than plastic bags, but you will recoup the investment over time since it’s reusable

How the Stasher Storage Bag Rates:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. Stasher bags are designed for food, but we love them for toiletries while traveling. The pinch-press seal keeps out leaks, and they’re see through for easy airport inspection. Plus, you can label what’s inside them depending on the trip, and toss them in the dishwasher when you return for easy cleanup. No more gross zip-lock bags for our 3-1-1 items!
  • Value: 8/10. You can use Stasher bags over and over again, so it’s a good price.
  • Portability: 10/10. Small and lightweight, Stasher bags pack easily.
  • Cool Factor: 9/10. The colors and designs offered are fun.

Final Verdict: Feel wasteful using and throwing away an endless supply of zip-lock bags? Stasher bags are better for you and the environment.
