OK, but there are better

"The plastic used in other bags are reinforced by mesh which tends to help support the bags while filling. As mentioned by another reviewer, it's necessary to keep pulling up on the strap handles while filling. This is because the soft plastic bag tends to collapse. This is my only gripe, as otherwise the bag works fine. Tree Gators need a bit of pulling up also, but not as much because of their mesh support. Hippo Bags (another brand) have no straps at all as their heavy duty plastic coupled with the mesh reinforcement allow them to stand up on their own as they fill. If you have more than one tree requiring bags, you can time how long it takes to fill the bag or bags around a single tree, then just stick the hose in and set a timer to tell you when it is about full. You don't have to stand there continuously to monitor the filling. I use a 'wye' and two pieces of hose to simultaneously fill two bags that are zippered together. I also have reservations about how many years these bags will last, given the lack of reinforcement and considering the amount of water pressure involved. If you just have one tree to water, the lower price makes them attractive, but you will expend some effort filling bags for several trees."

"We just planted 9 very large oak trees and wanted to use tree bags to help them get a good start. I had used a similar product from another company in the past, but was happy to find this product at a substantially lower price. Was a little skeptical of quality until they arrived. These bags are made very well with strong zippers. They are easy to set up and fill. Be sure to adjust them as you fill with water by lifting straight up and setting down so they sit symmetrically around the tree trunk. Label on flap is helpful. I will look for these when I need more in the future. Great product and great value."
