how good are they i have an 15 year or more ol shop vac and it always getting clocked up with dog hair and shit 

with the bag nothing gets to the filter, you empty the bag and go again filter stays relatively clean always

On a more serious note. Never knew they had reusable filter bags? I picked up a  Gore CleanStream filter at HomeDepot and love the thing. A little pricey, but two years later it still cleans up just like new.

 

I'll have to try one of these reusable bags with it, thanks for the tip.

Thats probably the original filter

in my shop class one time there was this one kid vacuuming out the cabinet table saw and he didn't realize the vac was full and all the saw dust was shooting out the back just as fast as it was sucking it up after he was done there was a good 1/2 inch of dust spread 10 feet back and 3 feet wide looked like it just snowed

Cement or drywall dust too!

 

I use the M18 vacuum whenever possible in houses, and that has a washable filter that doesn't collapse like a shop vac filter.... it doesn't take much to dry it out, either.
