The reynolds vacuum bags have a 'ziplock' type seal.

Seems like that type of seal on a vacuum bag could develop problems if you reuse the bags which I imagine most would be doing considering the cost. The Foodsaver heat seals the seam so it can't fail if its done right initially.

I don't re-use the bags at this point. I imagine that they would wear out fairly easily.

For my next experiment I'm going to try 1.4 oz baby food jars. Un-vacuumed ziplock bags did not perform all that well.

Some interesting ideas here on making one-way valves for jars:

I purposefully put coffee that goes to the freezer in jars without the one way valve. I want them to be tightly sealed and that one way valve is not reliable in a frozen state.

I keep a set of jars with one-way valves for that coffee that will be sitting out, used within a week and not to be frozen.

Actually, that is Planck's constant. As is Max Planck, physicist. In any case, being a little pedantic, I have to note that Planck's constant is really constant for everything. Including coffee beans.
