I purchase three of these hampers for my laundry area. Our home's laundry area is located in the hallway that heads out to the garage. The area isn't large and get a lot of traffic. When it was time to replace the current solution I couldn't find one of the systems with the rolling frame and hanging bags that would fit in our space. So, I went hunting. These work wonderfully. If I need to move them for sweep and mop, I just pick them up and move them around. The only critical thing I have to say about them is that they are a bit too tall. I have a hard time reaching all the way to the bottom.

Hides in Plain Sight
This hamper was perfect for our tiny bedroom. You can see it from our living room when the bedroom door is open and most people don't even realize it's a hamper. I'd say it can hold 3-4 loads of laundry (in a top loading machine) if you smash the clothes down. The handles on the sides make it easy to move from the bedroom to the laundry room and the cover allows it to slide easily on carpet and hardwood floors without snagging or scratching. We've had ours for seven years and it's still in great shape.

Not for carrying up stairs or for damp things
I really like the look and flexible-sturdiness of this hamper as well as how many clothes it can hold (2 large loads), but there are some things that I don't like about it too after having it for a couple of months:
1) It's tall and at 5'6" I have a really hard time carrying it up and down stairs even half full. My 5'11" husband thinks it's awkward but can do it more easily.
2) The particle board-like insert at the bottom molded through in a 4" section (green and black fuzziness) after I left something damp at the bottom last week. I feel like a laundry container should use materials that aren't going to do that! Maybe recycled plastic or antimicrobial something? It is now cloroxed and clean and dry but stained and wilty on the edges from getting damp.
If you have a 1 floor house/apartment with a washer & dryer close by, it would be fine to pull around or roll on something. Don't leave anything damp in it at the bottom or you'll have grossness on your hands.

They are great hampers to carry dirty clothes. Also the fact they link together is great.
