Grey Storage Bags
Good size but be careful lifting from handles
I bought these to store winter clothes. The sizes are good and the materiel holds a bit of its shape, which I like. But when I lifted by one handle it tore where the stitching was. So be careful lifting them.

Serves its Purpose
We bought 18 of these in order to completely reorganize our closet shelves. We bought them online but were sure to check all measurements to make sure we got the right number. They were really easy to open/set up/fill/etc., but we were hoping that they would maintain their shape a little better based on the picture online. They are made from a thin material, so if you stuff them pretty full, they will no longer be a perfect rectangle (see picture). Also, the zippers don't seem too strong. While packing a particularly full one, we were concerned that we were going to bust the zipper on its first use (we didn't).
We are happy with the purchase overall because they do exactly what we wanted them to do--organize our closet in a neat/uniform way with the ability to recognize what's packed inside.

FANTASTIC! Look great and they hold a lot!
I first bought the smallest of these storage bags when I was moving to warmer climates and I used it to store a few of my winter clothes. I could fit two pairs of boots, three sweaters, five scarves, for hats and even a few toiletries (you know how things get when you run out of boxes.) I couldn't believe I was able to fit so much!
Things are protected, and you can lock the zipper by using either a small lock or a metal break clip.
The handles are great and the material is very resistant, while looking good and organized!
After that I've bought the bigger, under bed boxes, and they work wonders as well. Great for seasonal items.
the only thing you have to be careful with is that, since these are made out of fabric, the "shape" of the box can change if you try to overfill the box... which is both good (since you can fit things wither way) and bad (it can alter a bit the shape of the box.)
Will buy more when needed!

Best Baby Clothes Organizer
I have a small circle of friends who rotate baby's clothes amongst each other as all of our daughters are pretty evenly spaced out in 3 month intervals. While everyone else is digging through heavy boxes or transferring from drawer to bag, I have each stage of the girls clothes perfectly labeled and stacked in the girls' room. I can over fill and squish the clothes down to fit - no problem. As long as the bag is somewhat full it retains its shape. I have read reviews of weak handles or zippers and I don't know what those people are putting in these bags because even over-filled, these bags zip well and the handles hold strong. The only down side is that if it is less than 3/4 full it will not retain its shape, but I have compensated for that by using unsharpened pencils as support rods in the corners and the center when stacking. But do not put anything too heavy on top of that because the pencils will fall.
