Horizon Round Crunch Can by UmbraÂ®
This is a great simple hamper. I wanted something light weight and easy to carry, especially since I have to lug it to a laundry mat. This was inexpensive, cute and is easy to transport- everything I could ask for in a hamper.

loving my purchase
I am very impressed with the round crunch can. I use mine as a laundry hamper and I love it! The product is quite sturdy, never flopping over, even with clothes hanging over the rim. The handles are also very useful and secure. It holds an abundant amount of clothes; I've never had an issue with it being too small. The lining is a nice attribute because it helps prevent the can from becoming smelly from dirty clothes. I definitely recommend this product.

This container is exactly what I needed and it is well made. I expect it to be useful for a long time.

better than expected
It is a heavyweight material and my daughter uses it for laundry at college so it is being drug up and down halls and has stood up wonderfully.

We use this item to throw our son's toys in around the house. It is actually so attractive, and matches our decor that we leave it out and don't try to hide it.

Great Starage solution!
I love these! They are a great storage solution and they are super cute! I cant imagine not using them, but if I don't I can crunch them up and compact for easy storage.I use them for my son's toys and one for all his costumes! I just bought them and I am already thinking of getting more for the house! They have so many uses!

Even my husband likes them. They stand up on their own. Very handy to carry from closet to laundry room. I also have one of the small square ones for my delicates.

It's big and roomy. However I have never been able to completely get out the dents and wrinkles after unfolding it from a flat ring. Since it is in a closet it doesn't really matter but it would look better if I could smooth the whole hamper out.

Can mold them to any shape
I got these in each color because I figured I could mold them into ovals instead of circles and get all four to fit in a closet. I was right! I had other hampers that would fit, but they would be too small so much space left over on the side. These I can mold into a shape without having to compromise on size. The only downside is they slouch a little But they stand up enough.

I already have one of these crunch cans and have been using it for a while. It is nice because first, it have no weight to add to your laundry, it is easy to carry, has nice colors and crunches down to a small, easy to store, disc. It is very strong also.

I see most people are using it as hamper but I purchased it to hold my winter shoes. I was able to place all my winter shoes in it and have it in my closet without taking up as much room as having all the shoes in their boxes. It's very handy and I will purchase the next one as a hamper.

Just what I expected!
I needed a hamper for my closet, and this is exactly how it looks and what I expected. It's lightweight, portable and really is a very good size. It holds quit a bit of clothing!

Round Crunch Can, by Umbra
I am quite pleased and glad I ordered the item(s). I ordered 3...
one for myself, my daughter and my daughter-in-law. I'm saving theirs for their birthdays, which (both) are in Sept. What impressed me as much as the product was how well the item matched the description, in the sale ad. This is a versitile item and can be used for a number of things. I'm a retired teacher and see all kinds of possibilites with it.

Great size, great color.
Got them for my daughter for college for laundry, but found that these can be used to transport all sorts of things back and forth to school and then be used for her laundry!
Bought two so she could separate white and darks!
Perfect addition to your college shopping list.

Nice solution for laundry
I bought these to sort and store laundry. Blue for darks. Yellow for lights. Red for red items and/or drycleaning. So far, they work well. They're a little tricky to get to stand up straight, but it's not that bad. They are actually a great size - bigger than I imagined. They hold at least a week's worth of laundry. This is good since I was concerned that they wouldn't be large enough.

Love these laundry crunch cans. I have three. Easy to hide away when I'm not using them, although I'm always using them so they are rarely put away. Makes it easy to carry my laundry up and down my 2 flights of stairs.

sent this back
I'm not sure why this is so highly rated? It may work fine if you're looking for something to move stuff around in, but for a stand-up storage container, this really doesn't work well. There's no frame, so it doesn't stand on its own well at all - it just relies on the stiffness of the fabric to hold itself up.

I have used my Umbra every week for years and years to lug my laundry down to my building's basement. It is so dependable and can hold a pretty heavy load. If this one ever quits, which I doubt will happen, I will gladly replace it with a new Umbra.

Durable and Beautiful
This hamper houses all of our laundry and turns it from an eyesore to a beauty. I am thinking my 6 yr old daughter will put this to good use when she goes to college one day.

Colorful cute cleaning container!
I bought the Umbra Horizon Round Crunch Can in yellow for my twins room; getting them to walk 6 feet to the laundry shoot was to taxing for them :-) and I was tired of picking dirty clothes up off the floor. With this cute, colorful can in their room, the clothes finally are out of sight and easy for me to bring to the laundry room. Next, the green one for my husband!

Loads of Help
Its a wonder product and it makes it easy to get laundry up and down the stairs even if your kids drag it. The shape changes but can always be bent back into shape and no hard edges to scrap on the walls.

I love these Umbra laundry bins - I have both the round and the rectangle. This one is ideal as it fits almost anywhere. And its sturdy!

Love this hamper
This coated fabric hamper is wonderful. It looks good and because of the coating it's easy to clean. It's lightweight but it stands on it's own. When needed it can be crunched flat. It holds several loads of clothes. Love it!

Just what I needed!
I'm a quilter, and I always have a number of projects in-progress at the same time. I store them in zippered bags-like sheets, etc come in-but they're slippery and hard to stack.
The Round Crunch Can was the perfect solution! It stands--a bit magical, I'll admit--on its own in my studio, and I have my project bags inside it. They're easy to retrieve, but out of the way in a nice-looking container. The green goes perfectly with the purple/green theme of the room, too!

Best laundry option for dorm rooms
This crunch can fits in my daughters suitcase when she goes to college. The inside is lined with plastic so that it won't get moldy if she happens to throw something damp into it.

Durable laundry basket
We use the crunch can as a hamper. Since our laundy room is in the basement, its easier to carry this down the stairs with one hand using the straps then have a bigger laundry basket that is harder to take down the stais. We've had it for over a year and it is still in great shape.

Great for college bound students
I bought this laundry basket for my daughter and she loves it. I love it too. It has held up through all of the trips to the laundry room and on trips home. Very sturdy and holds so much clothes. It stands up nicely in the closet as a hamper and the handles are strong enough to carry a full basket. Definitely worth the price! A must for every student!

Perfect for Sorting
I bought a blue and yellow crunch can for our master bedroom and they are perfect! Lightweight with handles make it easy to transport them to the laundry room, and we sort our lights into the yellow hamper and darks into the blue so there is no extra sorting needed! I just wish they came in even more colors.

Convenient and attractive
Really pleased with this purchase. Cute colors and easy clean inside. The only issue I didn't consider before purchase was that it doesn't have a lid. We don't have laundry in our apartment building, so we have to carry it a few blocks.

Lovely colors, not sure of utility
This can is a lovely shade of ombre blue. It stands upright well even when it's full of things that normally easily tip over. The material, while it's canvas on the inside, is lined with crackly plastic on the inside.
I wasn't prepared for this, but I can see that the plastic lining would make it useful as a laundry hamper, because the smell of the dirty clothes would not penetrate the can.
However, laundry was not my intended use of the can, and even though it's a silly objection on my part I would rather have had an unlined can.
