Modular Hauler System
Not quite what I thought
I love the concept of this item, however it does not have sturdy sides to stand up by itself as it appears in the photo. The inner bags are floppy and don't stand up square unless you pack them that way. The large gray bag is also not sturdy and must be full with the three colored bags; even then it sags and is difficult to carry alone. Use involves having to hold it up and open to pack, and/or digging around to get things out. I can accomplish the same ends by using regular duffel bags that don't cost so much.

only disappointment in 10 years
the 3 individual containers have no structure so they are difficult to load. i cut sturdy cardboard rectangles to fit each bottom. they still were difficult...maybe need ribs in vertical seams. i ended up getting gid of them as they were too soiled from being in a heap on the garage floor. a truly great idea that could use some engineering
before point of sale!

Exceptional Disaster Response Kit
I work with the CERT, Community Emergency Response Team, and this is EXCEPTIONAL for what I need in terms of responding to an incident or just having an emergency kit in my car. Granted, they don't stand up at all and using cardboard sides don't work well, but I manage. Especially if I use the 'frame method' to pack my items in the bag.
The bags alone are reflective and durable, and the material lasts a while. I especially love the side pockets in which the actual containers go in. I also like the top pocket so you can properly label each little tote bag container.
I like how it folds when you need it to. I managed to fold it and store it when I am not using it and thus make it convenient when traveling with it. The side handles to carry the entire package all in one go makes it easy as well.
The size of it for most small cars does not work, however in my car, a Ford Taurus '99, it only takes up part to half of the space, and if I am stuck in my car, I can pull out the whole thing by folding down my back seats and pulling it through to access some of the items in side.
All in all, I wouldn't pick anything else for the back of my car, at this price even! Only reason why it got a 4.75 star, not that I could mark it that way, was the fact it couldnt stand upright by itself, but with the foldability and such, I don't blame it! especially if you need your trunk! All in all, I love it.

Great for Space & Travel
This is great!!!
Had two separate containers in back of our vehicle. This hauler system reduced items to this system alone. Though it is stable and doesn't move, the zip containers means nothing falls out if it were to move or shift.
A lot more space than I anticipated. The added height of each of the colorful containers increased the extra space. I really didn't expect this to be as roomy as it is and I still have some more usable space.
The two original trunk organizers are now also folded and fit into the side of this hauler system. Amazing!
