Rated 5 out of 5Â by plumdumplings Fantastic bag!
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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

I just love this red polka dot bag which does match the poncho raincoat made by the same manufacturer. I took it on my international trip to Thailand and filled it with trinkets that were purchased from their market stalls. I always knew where the bag was as it was so bright and visible. Easy to clean out and easy to pack in your suitcase. Just fold and go!

I was traveling and used this bag to hold items I purchased. Nice size for air travel because when it was filed it still fit under the seat. Now at home it's a strong grocery bag. Roles up to a very small size, so I carry it in my purse.

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.

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!

I got several of these bags.Here in Colorado, I have to bring my own bags to the grocery store or get charged for bags.These fold up great and fit right in my purse,so that I don't ever get to the store and not have them.Good size,so they hold a lot but not to big,where they get to heavy.

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!

In my area in California, plastic bags are banned at the grocery store, and we have to pay for paper ones. I kept forgetting to bring my totes in, even when I had them right in the back seat. This bag rolls up so small I can keep it in my purse all the time! Also, It ISNT UGLY and is nice quality. Love and highly recommend

Bought one of these on a whim (I love anything red!) and loved it so much, I went back and bought two more! They are roomy enough to hold just enough groceries without being so big it's too much weight. Then you squish them back into a small little size that fits right in my purse. I am a convert and I'll take all my other square bottom bags and use for other stuff.

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.

I have used these bags for over two years and recently misplaced the ones I carry in my car. I have been so lost! I finally gave up searching and am ordering a new set. I really can't live without these great bags. I hope my order comes quickly!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by KayN Absolute best reusable bag
This is the best compact, sturdy, reusable tote I've seen. I keep one in each of my purses to hold any unexpected shopping. The elastic band works really well to keep it rolled up when not in use, and it's ultralight but very sturdy even when stuffed with heavy groceries. Best of all - this is what I think distinguishes it from other similar bags - the handles are oriented across the wide sides of the bag, not the short sides, so you can comfortably wear it on your shoulder when it's full. Highly recommended!

I love these bags! I have about 5 of them stuffed in various places since they are easy to roll up and store anywhere! I keep some in the car, in the house, etc. Great for quick trips to the mall, grocery store, or library. Holds lots of items, and when the bags are empty, I roll them up and store them until the next time.
