Round Crunch Can by UmbraÂ®
great laundry bag
This bag holds so much wet laundry I almost couldn't carry the bag- love that it folds down to store

This bin is perfect for hauling my laundry down to the laundry room. When I am done using it, it crunches flat for easy storage behind my dresser. This is FAR superior than the pop-up laundry totes, as I always had trouble with the wire poking through those. This only has a wire in the top rim to help it keep its shape. I love this product!

Excellent for soft storage
For corralling the blankets in the living room that never get folded. It's perfect, neutral, easy to move. I use these (both the round and rectangular) all over the house for laundry and storing objects to be moved from Point A (wherever the kids left it) to Point B (the proper location).

Great storage item
I love this crunch can. I bought three of them. It has handles which makes it very convenient to transport from room to room.

Crunch for my laundry
I actually use the Round Crunch Can to seperate my delicates from the rest of my laundry. I love the stylish look and the ease in carrying and putting it anywhere!

Plain but really functional!
Love this laundry hamper! We use it on our AirStream trailer to hold dirty clothes. It's strong, holds a lot, and is only as big as it needs to be while filling up.

A friend has this hamper but with a cute design. I still purchased this one because I love this hamper so much! Perfect size and light weight material making it an easy travel to the laundry room.

great for college student
I bought this for my son after the cheapo one we bought at the discount store didn't even make it thru the semester. The plain color (and no cutesy pattern) appealed to my son, and it's very sturdy. It stands up on its own, which is important as well. Great purchase!

I love this product!
I tried this product on a whim last fall and am so glad I did. If I hadn't already purchased a bunch of expensive laundry hampers, I would have one for each room in my house. I use it as a big laundry hamper in my master bathroom and it is such a cute touch. It comes in a variety of really cute designs and colors. You could really use it to store anything, and I love how it was (relatively) inexpensive, and could even be crunched down to bring on car trips, to the beach, etc. If I find use for another, I'll definitely get one.

Great for kids costumes!
I use mine for all of the costume clothing my child has. It's been great! I can really smush them in there! I also throw in some taller, pole like items. The only think I don't like is sometimes it needs to be shaken or straightened up.

form and function
I never thought i'd use a collapsable hamper as my main hamper, but this is a great buy. Love the canvas.

Great laundry container
Very cool looking and it's lined with plastic so wet towels can get thrown in.

Impossible to clean
I had a couple of these and loved them, until I made the mistake of putting some wet laundry in them. The fabric got mildewy and because they are plastic lined, there was no way to bleach them or put them in a load of laundry. The bottoms also got dirty and nothing really worked to clean them. I think a hamper with a removable fabric liner is a better option. I ended up replacing these with hard plastic ones and love them.

A space saver!
I bought the Umbra crunch can for when I need some extra storage. When I need it, I take it of the closet and open it. When I don't, I close it up and put it away. It's very convenient.

I use the smaller version of this can as a trash can in my car (w plastic bag liners). It works really well and crunches flat when not in use.

Why pair more for a hamper?
Great value for a hamper that looks good and is lightweight.

Crunch your heart out
Great collapsible hamper/can. Good for transporting laundry, linens, toys, whatever, or just as a hamper. Water-resistant interior is a plus. Best of all, when you get sick of your chores, you can take it out on this indestructible, crushable, stompable sack!

I bought this laundry basket this summer to take with me to college. It's great for holding a lot of clothes and fitting in smaller places such as under a bed. However, it is a hassle to carry all of the way to my laundry room. The basket is kind of awkward to hold, and my straps are beginning to rip.

great basket for laundry and more
This basket is sturdy enough to hold 2 loads of laundry and keep its shape. It's lightweight and scrunches up when you want to put it away. I'd suggest it for all sorts of storage as well.

i bought the crunch can for my fiance's work clothes. i love it. it's very easy to tote back and forth

So Many Uses For This Product
This was the first item I purchased from the Container Store sight unseen and was not disappointed. We have had them for over five years and they are still going strong. Originally they were purchased for recycle bins, because we had to haul our own recycling to the recycling center. One each for papers, mixed paper, glass, plastic, and cardboard. They got a lot of rough use back then and have held up very well. Now we don't have to haul that kind of stuff, we have since washed them out and used them for ball and other kind of storage, laundry, camping, hauling many bulky things to and from the car and actually put odd sized items in them when we were moving. I wish they still came in the denim color because that shows less dirt; but color aside this is a great item that stores compactly and is multi-functional for many household uses. It can be used to put a leave bag in and carried around the yard to pick up yard waste after a storm. You won't be sorry you purchased this item.

I like that these are really light, blend in easily in any room, and are really functional (i.e., no basket pieces to catch clothing, easy to clean, store, etc.). I got 2 small ones to sort delicates and an extra for-whatever one in the garage.

I bought this crunch can many years ago and have wished I had purchased others at that time. I finally found it again and bought 4 more...perfect addition to my bathrooms/bedrooms. It holds up wonderfully!

Can work as a trash bin too
This is a great multi-use product. I have a larger one that I use for storage -- and since it's much more interesting looking than a plastic bin, you can keep them in open spaces.
For this smaller version, I actually use it as a trash bin in my bathroom. It has something like a plastic lining on the inside so that the fabric doesn't stain. Some dirt and dust particles stick to the lining, but overall it works great. It's functional and cool looking.
Plus, easy to store.

Sturdy but collapsible hamper
We use this for guests and when we are moving while our furniture catches up with us. With the addition of an extra long rubber band or a bungee cord, it remains flat for storage, but when un"crunch"ed it's strong enough to support a thick cotton laundry bag. I use that to disguise its basic and slightly wrinkly look, though it still looks relatively new after three years of intermittent use & storage.
Love the fact that the interior has a slick plastic coating & I have used spray bleach to clean the interior when I've found damp items lurking in the laundry.

Very hand little container
We bought this because we wanted a long-term "bag" to put our recycling in; we have a double-high, but not very deep, drawer for recycling and had been using paper bags (which we don't do anymore). This container was exactly sturdy enough to stand up on its own and keep our recycling in check, but also flexible enough to expand to hold a lot of cans, newspapers, etc. (our previous container, a hard plastic container, was not flexible and we had to empty it multiple times a day). Easy to clean, store, and carry.
