The bags are made of several special materials that add seven layers of filtration before reaching the motor pre-filter and HEPA filter. The bags are also designed and manufactured by miele, unlike a lot of companies who outsource the manufacturing of their bags to Chinese companies.

GN bags have typically been used in the larger machines and have about a 30-40% larger capacity. Other bag types such as U bags are used in their upright machines and are not designed to be used with the canisters. When inserted into the machine the bags attach to a plastic holding bracket which secures it and keeps it from moving. The plastic mount located on the bag is color coordinated with the inside bag holder, in order to keep the customer informed of the proper bag to choose.

It is necessary though to always use miele genuine bags as opposed to generic ones. Genuine miele bags have been proven to retain much more particles, and counterfeit HEPA filtration bags have been shown to release up to 288x more material. It is imperative that someone who has allergies be aware of these differences, as the filtration is one of the main reasons a homeowner buys a miele vacuum cleaner.

Overall miele bags are a very high quality bag and operate as 7 of the 12 layers of filtration in the vacuum cleaners. The high grade material keeps the customer assured that all of the allergens and dust particles are being captured, and that they are creating a healthy living environment.
