Grey Storage Bags
Grey Storage Bags
These storage bags/totes do not look like the photo images on the Container Store website. Instead they are not smooth as they've been photoshopped for the site. The bags/totes come collapsed in a neat fold therefore there are creases. Nor do they come with stiffeners to hold the bottoms flat and straight or the sides up. You'll have to be skillful to custom cut corrugated board or foam core for this. This is an extremely time consuming process and project. Wished they came with these stiffeners if even to purchase separately.

Fantastic - Just what I wanted
I have at least a half dozen old wool blankets which I did not want to store in an old dresser drawer (not large enough) nor did I want to put in a plastic storage container. This container will work great. I have washed, hand wash cycle, and dried most of the blankets and placed into the box. It will more than handle the 6 or so blankets. In the picture the box looks self-supporting, it is not. Your contents support the sides. This is just info~~

I have all my winter clothing's like sweaters or Christmas sweaters and I use the vacuum bags that reduce the size but then you have all of these bags that have to be stored usually on a shelf so I bought this bag and everything fit in there perfect and have it stored out of the way on the bottom of the closet and then it leaves my shelves free for other things.
I am going to buy some different sizes for different thing to store in them out of the way.

Good size but be careful lifting from handles
I bought these to store winter clothes. The sizes are good and the materiel holds a bit of its shape, which I like. But when I lifted by one handle it tore where the stitching was. So be careful lifting them.

This storage item meets all expectations. It would be great for any non-structured item...pillows, blankets, linens, towels. However, I am currently using it to store a small hard plastic studio for photography. Although I could use a little more structure on the sides, it is great for keeping the 24 x 20 x 15 hard surface piece dust free.

floppy sac bag
This bag is not as shown. It has no support along the walls. It is entirely floppy and without structure. It will only look like the picture if it is completely filled. Quality of seaming fine but beware it is monstrous in size and hard to manipulate because of the lack of structure.

Nice storage bag
The picture of the product makes it look like more of a storage box that has some structure to it. In reality though this is a storage bag with no structure. It will take the shape of what you put in it. It worked well for me and will work well to store towels, clothes or blankets. It will also fold down nicely to an easily to manage size when you are not using it.

A very good buy
A very good storage bag and very large. And take punishment.

The bags are sturdy and the material is very durable. Love the neutral color and the useful handles. When not in use they can fold up flat until next time they are needed.

Excellent Storage Bags.
I'm not big on letting others know what I have. So the grey color bags were everything I was looking for. They hold well and seem durable . I bought them in every size. The only reason I'm not giving it a 5 star is because as I was taking one of the under the bed ones out the zipper broke. Lesson learn Do Not Over Packed them leave a little room for the under the bed ones. Besides that, the bags are pretty awesome and the price is just right.

Had a hard time deciding on 3 or 4 stars for this bag. Ultimately picking 4 because this is a well constructed bag. My but is because it will not hold it's shape and is cumbersome to move because it collasps' in on itself. I have a similar bag from another source that has a sort of frame built into it's construction which I like better but can't remember where I got it.

I have the extra large bag for blankets! I love it. It's machine washable and soft so you could fold it up if desired when not in use.

I was looking for someplace to store my boots for the summer. As I keep them in the boxes, this was a perfect solution. Now they will stay clean and organized.

I purchased these bags to store off-season clothing in. I stack them on the top shelves of my clothes. I like the handle and the flexibility of the bags (sides and top are not stiff) so that I can squeeze them into a tight space.

I bought two of these store Christmas candles and other seasonal candles. And like someone else mentioned they are not hard sided but I was able to put a piece of cardboard in the bottom and the sides are sturdy enough to hold the candles and they're nice enough looking to be out on top of the cabinets in my laundry room. I also love the size they're big enough to hold things but not so huge that you can't manipulate them.

Best Baby Clothes Organizer
I have a small circle of friends who rotate baby's clothes amongst each other as all of our daughters are pretty evenly spaced out in 3 month intervals. While everyone else is digging through heavy boxes or transferring from drawer to bag, I have each stage of the girls clothes perfectly labeled and stacked in the girls' room. I can over fill and squish the clothes down to fit - no problem. As long as the bag is somewhat full it retains its shape. I have read reviews of weak handles or zippers and I don't know what those people are putting in these bags because even over-filled, these bags zip well and the handles hold strong. The only down side is that if it is less than 3/4 full it will not retain its shape, but I have compensated for that by using unsharpened pencils as support rods in the corners and the center when stacking. But do not put anything too heavy on top of that because the pencils will fall.

I bought this to store my daughter's artwork. I did not realize before my purchase that the sides are not stiff, so the box doesn't keep it's shape. However, it's still efficient storage with quality material that should last.

I am packing to move cross-country and these bags are GREAT for clothes. You can fit SO much into each bag, even the smaller one. I was able to fit my entire work wardrobe into the large size and it is still light and easy to carry. I wish I had known about these bags before I bought some of the other packing materials...these are ten times better!

I bought these to organize my closet.
I like them bit they tend to lose shape if they are not filled up. Having side and bottom supports would have been nice. But on the plus side my closet looks amazing and they are not expensive.

Love it but.....
I purchased a soft sided storage bag for Camper travel and storage. I did not use it yet but I did zip and unzip 3-4 times and the black zipper pulls broke right off! I still think this is a great item for flexible storage in tight spaces like an RV or camper. So I returned it and got a replacement and bought 2 more! I plan on purchasing larger ones as well! I made new zipper pulls out of black grosgrain ribbon.
I am hoping that the Container Store fixes this problem. Other than that issue I LOVE these!

Purchased these to sort and store my off-season clothes. One of the cube bags was half full with sundresses-nothing heavy-and when lifted, the handle ripped off at the seam. Very disappointing.

I bought this storage bag to keep my quilts and sheets. It does just that. What I don't like is that the bag doesn't keep its cube shape. Also the handles don't look to sturdy either, so I won't try to put anything even slightly heavy in them.

What happened to the durability?
I have several of these storage bags and they work well. I recently purchased several more for packing linens for college dorms. One cube, the handle detached from the zipper. We had to add a paperclip to the zipper so we can open/close the zipper. The other one, the handle complete tore off when I lifted the cube off of the ground. The cube wasn't overly heavy and I certainly expect the handles to be durable. Too bad - these look nice but the durability is questionable.

Does the job!
Bought these to store sheets, towels, and bed blankets and they work just fine! Everything fits beautifully, and now my linen closet looks alot neater, ( I think I even have a little more space)! Zippers are sturdy so far.....

A must for for my camper!!
This storage bag didn't cost much and I didn't expect it to be so great!! It isn't a suitcase! It is a light weight, great size organizing tool. I have all my extra sheets, beach towels, wash cloths, etc. for my camper in one bag. It works so much better than a basket that can spill over! Stays neat and tidy and doesn't let the dust and dampness in! I can move it around easily with the great handles when I need the spare bunk. It is plenty strong and will last! The big size will work perfectly for seasonal clothing storage too!

Love the material and they hold lots. Need frame to hold walls up!

These look really great in the picture. But they are nothing more than glorified grocery bags with a zipper. They will not retain the nice box shape when you put things in it. There is nothing to bolster them. They are just grocery bag material with a zipper.

Best purchase ever!!! It's the perfect size and it makes the room look organized, I'm going to get a lot more of these :)

Nice for clothes storage
I bought this for storing clothes in my camper van. This is the perfect size. The cube does not stand on its own, but once filled with clothes is fine. It is the perfect size. The handles are a nice addition.

These are great. They are very cute, and add a nice decorative touch to any room. They make it really easy to keep organized and easily access the items inside of them. I love organizing my stuff, and I really like being able to label the storage bags.
