To be honest, I think you'd be fine with Ziploc freezer bags - the thick-ish ones with the double closure... they're pretty bomber as long as they don't get punctured.

I am gonna use this thread for a off-topic, but dog related PSA

Same thing happened in October with a different manufacturer:

I often buy dog toys and other non-food supplies at discount stores like TJMAxx and have often found expired treats from unknown brands being sold there.
Yes, I wear masks whenever indoors and I practice strong social distancing

I LOVE the RW Palisades pack, my one is at least 8yrs old and has wear and tear but still great, they have redesigned the pack release since and i do not know how well that is vs the buckles but great company gear. I keep the dogs food (kibble) in plastic containers for day hikes and use freeze dried food for backpacking, lighter weight for the dogs, but i again keep it in the heavy duty ziplock bags. the compactor trash bag is a great suggestion, i use one in my backpacking bag!
