    Promising review: "This particular vacuum seal wine saver is awesome! It's very good quality. It looks and feels much more expensive than it is.

It stays clasped and is also really easy to clasp and unclasp. Most of all, it provides a nice tasteful design to my outfits without being gaudy or busy.

Mine came without a scarf by accident (to tie on handle) and the seller was very responsive and kind and sent me (6) SIX different scarves PRONTO! All nautical and different colors, very Hermès-looking. For $15 bucks, it is adorable and cannot be beat. I would love a larger one if they make one too!
