Bright Smart Shopper by reisenthelÂ®
Not sure this bag needs one more glowing review, but what the heck ;) I purchased one in-store. It has a beautiful blue and green butterfly pattern, but all the designs look nice.
When I shop, I use a grocery basket and can typically figure that if it fits in the basket, it will fit in the bag. It can carry a lot of weight - I've never felt like it was even remotely close to straining the handles.
I carry a very small purse and am still able to keep this in my purse at all times. I like the elastic strap that holds the folded bag together. Though it is not as compact as stuffing into a little bag or zipper compartment, it is super fast to do.
Since I usually use this at grocery stores and farmer's markets, it tends to get dirty - meat drips or dirt from veggies, etc. which is a non-issue since it's totally washable (either a rinse in the sink or in the washing machine) and dries in no time at all.

These are durable, washable compact and long lasting. I have several and some are several years old and receive weekly use for grocery shopping.

Strong & Stylish
I liked the first houndstooth pattern bag from Reisenthel so much, I purchased another. In San Francisco, you pay for shopping bags unless you bring your own. Why not add a little fun to your shopping experience with a smart looking bag. This bag folds down to 'wallet' size when empty and fits in any jacket or pants pocket. I wish this pattern came in more colors! Buy it and it will become your favorite shopping bag.

Love this bag
I use this bag nearly every day. It folds up as small as I want and holds up better than any other compact carry bag I have used. I will definitely buy more.

Great travel bag
I bought this bag to replace one that I had and lost. It folds up with an attached band, and is small enough to throw in your purse. When you need extra storage while out and about, take off the band and unroll it. And you cannot lose the band as it is attached

Love This Bag
I agree with all the other reviews, but what I like best about it is it's so compact I leave it in my purse. I never remember to bring in my bags from my car. Last time I was at the self checkout register for my few items I, again, remembered all my bags in the car - then I remembered this bag in my purse. Made my day! Fits more than a plastic grocery bag and much stronger.
Going to buy more today for fun gifts for friends.

"Love" my reusable bag
Received as a birthday gift. I have bought three more and given to people I know who would use them.
Thanks for providing a good quality bag to help the environment.

Big bag when open, small when folded and a bad to keep it small while waiting for its next use. Strong enough to carry a hefty load. When soiled, wash/dry then refold and return to your purse or glove box.

Best 6.99 I Ever Spent
I cannot tell you how much I love this bag. (I got it in the houndstooth print.)
I wanted to get real with using reusable bags, so I found this one and keep it in my purse. It is so versatile and helpful that I will be buying another one!
Use it at the library, use it at the grocery store, use it when you have something to bring home from work...whatever it is, it will hold it strongly and leaves no odor.
Love it - thanks, Container Store, for introducing me to it!

great bags for the everything
These bags are great for shopping! I keep them in my car and in my purse so I always have one. They fold away perfectly. I gave them for gifts this Christmas and they were well received!

This is great for travel. It fits in your purse and can be used overseas when at the grocery stores or just shopping.

Cute, strong and portable
I've now purchased many of these bags in different patterns - the selection changes at the store. The price is great. The bags are sturdy and fold up to be very compact. They are strong and hold a large amount for such a lightweight bag. They come with a nice built-in elastic band so you can easily fold them and keep them in your purse. I love them. Always happy when I use them!

Great for any shopper
These bags fold up so small and are so light I use them for any type of shopping. They are stronger and greener than plastic of any type.

Great for Groceries
I always use these bags to carry groceries since I walk to and from the store. They are strong enough to be filled with groceries, and they are comfortable to carry. Best of all, the bags fold up nicely so they are easy to store when not in use.
