I'm willing to distribute for the 4rth round.
$7 for 5, $13 for 10 should be almost exactly the right cost.
Orders of 5 or 10 doesn't matter to me since I have to buy a pack of envelopes (the cheapest I've found was for 25) and they'll all be sent out at the same time.
I'm keeping 20 for myself and friends around here.
If enough people are interested, I'd most likely order monday or tuesday.
Hopefully I'd be able to mail out the packages right after Memorial Day weekend (Doing MT washington !).
I only need a Commitment in this thread. No need to PM.
I will contact you via PM from this list requesting payment and address, when and IF it fills.
Just post your count in this thread,
Please do the math: "+5 to bring the total to 35"
The clip and seal bag clips was mentioned before, however I'm not sure which size would be best.
Considering the size of the bags, I think it'd be easy to fold the top and be able to use the small clips (clamp is 5.1 in long).
Since I don't need 10; if other people want to try out one I think I could add one to the nylofume order for individual cost + whatever additional shipping cost depending on weight of the chosen size.
I believe the weight of 10 nylofume bags, envelope and a clipandseal should come under the USPS weight limit for first class mail.May 17, 2012 at 12:59 pm #1878700

5 for this guy makes 95 current total.May 17, 2012 at 7:42 pm #1878825
@lci2000Locale: Southwest USA
my five makes 100 … but if there are to be 20 held back then that leaves only 80 out of the 100 bags left for sale … right? Bit confusing. Let me know what the outcome is and I will send payment as needed.
LeonardMay 17, 2012 at 7:49 pm #1878826
The "20 held back" are included in this count, so this round is closed.
I'm sure David will be checking in soon.May 17, 2012 at 8:18 pm #1878840
@lci2000Locale: Southwest USA
Thanks Greg … I missed the later addition of the original 20 bags at the 30 count mark. I had only noted that the original purchase count started at zero. So I'm good to go.May 17, 2012 at 10:43 pm #1878873
Hi David, I don't need bags as I got some in the last round (thanks Tyler). However, I could do with a couple of clips if you have any left over and are willing to ship USPS 1st Class International to Turkey. I'm willing to pay the cost + shipping + a little extra for your trouble. PM me if it's possible.
WilliamMay 18, 2012 at 2:28 am #1878900
If there are any left, I'd like 5 bags.
SusanMay 18, 2012 at 3:45 am #1878908
Well, that was fast.
Busy weekend ahead but I'll try to get things done as soon as possible.May 18, 2012 at 8:53 am #1878959
Are you guys using these for:
Packliner or Odor Proof?
I can supply these bags, but need to know which purpose is most popular because the same film can't be used for both purposes.
Nylofume is not waterproof and should only be used for odor proof purposes. We use a different film (with same mechanical strengths, size and weight) for these bags when used as a packliner. Nylon film is not waterproof, but will keep the contents dry from splashes. Nylon is a natural water attractant and will pass vapor through in high humidity (like when it's raining). Hence, it should not be used for a packliner.
You can test this yourself: Crumple up some paper in the Nylofume bag. Immerse the contents (up to the twisted neck of the bag) in water overnight. You'll find the odor proof bag contents evenly damp (i.e., it's not from a pinhole in the bag).
I can supply both a packliner version and an odor proof version, but if one is most popular, I'd like to start there because minimum order quantity is quite large.
If OP is most popular, we can also make them smaller like 13" W x 20" H (taller to accommodate twisting to close), ~ 620 ci after twisting closed.

"I can supply these bags, but need to know which purpose is most popular because the same film can't be used for both purposes."
"Nylofume is not waterproof and should only be used for odor proof purposes."
Under water overnight is a bit rigorous.
Ice-Ax seems to think they will do OK:
"So one nylofume bag inside my MLD Exodus went 2,180 miles and it still is not punctured. I should add that while i used it to store my quilt and clothing inside my pack during the day, I also used it to store my food at night and slept on it like a pillow through out my thru hike of the AT. (Don't try this at home.. sleeping with food is only for experts or idiots like me)
"It took four garbage compactor bags to complete the PCT and 6 compactor bags on the CDT. The compactor bags would suffer tiny holes due to debris inside the pack.
Nylofume bags are more durable than garbage compactor bags."
His entire post can be found Here
[And although it might seem like it, I have no vested interest in these bags.]May 18, 2012 at 3:35 pm #1879058
I had intended to use them as a pack liner having read the post that Greg referenced. So if these bags are not really suitable for that purpose and the referenced post was a one-off, coincidence or luck, then I guess I'll bow out.
SusanMay 18, 2012 at 4:21 pm #1879071
Do you know of something comparable and more water-proof to serve as a pack liner? Probably like most people, I'm looking for the lightest/most durable pack liner as well as a large odor-proof food bag, and perhaps some smaller ones as well for snacks on the trail, etc. Perhaps the mylar turkey bags? I've been thinking about contacting these people: http://www.mqplastics.com/polyester-shrink-film-cooking-bags.php
