The vacuum bags do get holes just like any air mattress. But, when a vacuum bag gets a hole it will still compress your bed for you. Which reveals the true utility of the Carry Bag, because once the vacuum packed bed is in the Carry Bag it can only expand to the limits of the Carry Bag.
Plus the vacuum bags are really easily fixed with tape since the Vacuum Pressure actually makes a tighter seal. Unlike an air mattress where the patch is always been pushed away from the hole.
Our testers did not find the bags with holes to be much of an issue except for when they were trying to get their bed out of the Carry Bag. So we added a tension relief zipper to give just a bit more utility.
