Purigen seeped through media bag

I bought some purigen and a Lee's Media bag that looked like it was pretty fine. I put the Purigen in and the small balls started going through the bag. Does anybody know if Seachem's "The Bag" is the only one you can put Purigen in?

You want an 800 micron mesh bag.

I dont know exactly how many microns my bag is, but it looked pretty fine. But there are some really small balls of purigen...

Did you buy the pre packed purigen?
If so, you may have too much flow going through the media, causing it to rub together and break apart.
One other thing, did you rinse out the purigen before you added it? You might just see some smaller particles or dust.
