BugZip™ Bed Bug Resistant Medium Suitcase Encasement
This product was a failure.
I purchased this product in advance of a trip during which I knew that there was a very high likelihood that I would be exposed to bedbugs. I followed the instructions for use and the very first time I attempted to close the bag-the zipper "popped" wide open! I tried several times to unzip and re-zip the bag to see if I could get the zipper to close.
It failed on every attempt. I was very disappointed in the performance of this product and would not recommend that you purchase it.

Worst pruchase ever
Very flimsy. The zipper broke immediately.. A bed bug would have no trouble crawling inside one of these

After further inspection of the bag, the ends of the zipper aren't as insecure as I stated in my previous review. The last inch or so of both ends are attached to the vinyl to provide the seal. However, the lack of a zipper stopper still renders the zipper vulnerable. If they just added some thickened sealing at the end to prevent the zipper from coming loose, this would be a much more useful product. If you do buy this, take extra care not to push the zipper too far closed. I also noticed that the description says "recommended for single use." That sucks.

I highly doubt that this product is bedbug resistant as it advertises. The beginning and ends of the zipper don't appear to be secure. The ends of the zippers simply have a loose piece of clear plastic covering the ends, no sealing; seems pretty easy for a bedbug to slip in if it wanted to. Also, when you close the zipper there is nothing to stop the end of the zipper. As a result mine came off after zipping/unzipping just a couple times. It's impossible to put back on, and now useless. Find a better quality, reliable product.

Re: Zipper broke on first use
Quality is a zero. Zipper broke upon first use. Not expensive enough the be worth the time to return - will just junk it and not buy any bigzip products. Fool me once...
