Vacuum Sealer Bag ?????

I found a pretty good deal on some 8" x 12" vacuum sealer bags, But they a 3 mil thickness, verses the 3.5 that I usually buy.

does anyone use the 3 mil bags ?. or do you think that 1/2 mil is going to make much of a difference ?.

I think that it mostly

I think that it mostly depends on what you put into them.  I have used a varity of bags for my Food Saver model but have no idea of the thickness of them but I have found that I like the actual Food Saver bags over the others just for other reasons such as the seal that they provide, perhaps that is a benefit of the few extra mills of thickness.
