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.
