I’m looking to source some very large vacuum bags like those they use on veneer/laminate processes.

I have the pump… This would not be for the traditional veneering type of project.

I’m looking to store, safely and dry, some interior boat cushions over the winter in a sealed bag.

Thanks everyone!!

+1 look at another option:
Reusable commercial vacuum bags are expensive compared to consumer grade space saver bags sold for storing bulky stuff like bedding/pillows. Some of the space saver bags even include one way valves, so you roll up or flatten the bag to remove air (without a pump) and it stays deflated until you need it? Space saver brand and Ziploc bedding storage products are available at stores like Bed Bath and Beyond, if you want to see them in person before buying a dozen on Amazon.

If you can not find proper size bag, another option commonly used in composites mfg is to make bag from roll of heavy plastic film. They use 2 piece ‘fold over’ clamps for sides, and/or special vacuum tape to seal the seams on custom size bag. WWW is flush with online sources for vacuum bagging supplies used for composites.
