6-Compartment Canvas Hanging Sweater Bag
At first I was afraid that the velcro would not be able to carry the weight of the items that I put in the sweater bag. It does!! It's also great for other items such as accessories. ;-)

It does what it's supposed to do
If I had the cash flow to invest in another Elfa closet drawer dresser, I would've done that. If you put too much weight on these shevles (notice how there's only a few sweaters here and there in the photos) the top will bow. It drives me insane. I have the matching hanging shoe bag and it's great. I bought the shoe bag first, and wanted things to match so I didn't go for the hanging bags with hooks on top instead of velcro. Other than that, it's a great product at a great price.
Side note, It would be awesome if there were matching bins for this to put in the cubbies. There's options out there, but the colors and measurements don't match exactly.

Exactly what I needed
I bought the hanging bag to fill a temporary need while I shop for a dresser but I think I will keep using it because it is just so handy in my closet. It was exactly what I needed to help restore order.

I originally bought this product to act as a substitute dresser (I just moved into the city on a very small budget, and have decent closet space). I installed it immediately after I returned home, and was very pleased.
The following day I ran an errand to a similar store, and saw the hanging storage shelf product I had just bought at The Container Store, for $5 less. I couldn't be sure that it was the exact same, but it looked like it could do the same job (and obviously I thought I was getting the best deal: saving $5 and a trip). BUT I WAS WRONG. When I returned home and hung up my new hanging shelf (from this other store) I regretted my purchase. The fabric was thin, and the levels of the shelves were not reinforced. Placing anything on this new hanging shelf made it sag down, and decreased the visibility of what was on that shelf. Once I saw the two shelves hanging side by side, it was clear- I packed back up the newer (inadequate) shelf that I had saved $5 on, and returned it to the store.
I then went Back to The Container Store and purchased the original hanging shelf, (telling the cashier all about it). No regrets since.
My closet looks great, and the quality of these hanging shelves are excellent. Truly one of the best investments I've made in organization (and they were only $20 each!)
