Had 6+ years - Held up, Still Use I got two of these originally as they are light, appeared sturdy enough and could crunch down which was useful as at the time useful as my laundry area was a closet, not a room. It has been many years and so far, not a hole, handles still on and I use them every week. They get a work out from my cats who find the crunch part to be amusing, and the fact that it is a bit translucent makes it a bit of a cat toy on laundry day, whether I like it or not, usually not. The size works out very well too as it works out that I can gauge a load by how full the bag is. I can get a couple of decent loads packed in one bag, and once folded, the square form is useful to keep everything neat. Also the lining is easy to clean - which I have to do to get out the cat hair. I have not cleaned the outside much but it still looks okay. My regret would be that I did not get a nicer color or pattern but this was a great purchase - my previous laundry baskets, no matter the type, never held up this long. This is also very comfortable to carry. February 3, 2013
Love my crunch baskets I was replacing some crunch baskets I had been using to store and tote my personal chef equipment. I keep my gear in my car and bring into a client's home. I had 3 baskets and they held up after years of use. They were just starting to look beat but still worked great. The new ones I purchased are a bit larger so even though I bought 3, I only needed 2. I can tell they are the same high quality as the previous ones and I expect them to last me just as long. March 19, 2010

great storage container! This is sturdy, well made and the perfect size. I use it to hold all my tote bags and keep it in my closet. I think I might buy another one! May 22, 2014

Does this hamper stand erect when empty?

I need to fit in my laundry room spaces in the shelves to the bottom right of the photo as shown and wonder if they will work. Want them to be sturdy and attractive.
