Does anybody know where to buy a vacuum pack system (the one where you can suck your clothes into a bag the size of a squashed squirrel)?

You can try & get it from Parkson, on the floor where they sell household wares & bedsheets. There's a Korean brand call Lock & Lock that sells it.

I saw some of these for sale here:

They had 2 brands available.

(I remember someone asking about these recently but I couldn't find the thread).

phoenix22 Check out the link above. All you need is the vacuum cleaner to suck out the air.

Hi every one,

I'm reviving this thread since answers are very old.

So you guessed it, I'm looking for vacuum bags or packs as some call them.

Does anyone have a clue to where to find some?
