Natural Cotton Hanging Storage Bags is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 97.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from If only... I now have 3 of these, and the hangers are not strong enough, and the hardware inside the bags at the top are not strong enough - the metal pieces always end up bending and then the clothes all fall together and get all wrinkled. It would be so easy to make these things sturdier! Now, before I hang my clothes in these, I get a thick piece of wire from the hardware store and reinforce the wimpy, bendable metal hardware that it comes with. I shouldn’t have to do that, especially not at these prices!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT for Autumn & Winter Storage If you only need to store light and flowy gowns then this may work for you. If you need to store heavier leather and wool items then keep looking. I put 4 men’s short leather coats inside the bag and it collapsed. The hangers they use for the closet rod are so flimsy that they cannot hold any real weight. Sure, there is enough space to hang many jackets and coats but the hangers cannot even support FOUR coats!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great storage bags I bought another Natural Cotton Hanging Storage Bag for a couple of new blazers and dress pants I bought recently. I already had two of them, which have kept my clothes in perfect condition. Since the cotton allows it to "breathe", that helps to keep my dress clothes not only clean but also odor-free. I had experience using clear plastic bags years ago, and found the contents didn't stay fresh at all like they do in those made of cotton. I'm also pleased The Container Store offers them in three sizes, which I find reasonably priced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design and quality I didn't spend a lot of time comparing cotton bags, I simply knew I wanted to get my jackets out of the plastic bags from a lot of the clothing stores... These bags are well made of good weight cloth, the zipper goes all the way to the top (so no gap for moths to crawl in). There are 3 hooks which go through the bag and are attached to a zig zag bar to place your hangers on inside the bag, That somewhat restricts the qty of items you can hang inside the bag, but I'm not certain I could have fit any more items in the bag anyway. I agree with other reviews the paperboard they give you to put in the bottom is on the cheap side, but I will likely cut a piece of 1/8" plywood to size and then be able to oil it with cedar oil -or- another moth repellent oil. I did take bits of poster putty (used to hang posters on walls) and formed it around the 3 hangers which protrude out the top to seal up the holes so moths couldn't crawl in them. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good hanging storage bag I ordered this bag to store hanging clothes in our vacation apartment. The bag is well constructed and very roomy. It comes with three hanger hooks and a bar inside on which I have added my own hangers. I like that the garment bag is cotton and can "breathe" and the clothes hanging inside are easy to access. I gave four instead of five stars because the cardboard piece that goes into the base is flimsy. The bag still keeps its shape but I think over time having a very sturdy base at the bottom would help it retain its shape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect These are far away the best I have found for clothes storage. The capacity is amazing. When I got them home and hung them near my other 'multi' garment bags, the difference was shocking. I think I have 12 blazers in the suit bag, and in the gown bag -because the gowns are lighter- I have two gowns, a long wool coat, 5 or 6 cocktail dresses, a satin coat, and several skirts and blouses. There is no strange odor like you get with any of the plastic bags, and they are actually rather pretty with the little tassled zipper - it is a shame they are in my attic! Worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great For Storing Your Clothing Well made, cotton bags that hold lots of clothes. The interior rod holds up well to clothing, and hangers, with weight. Have used these for many years and have never had the interior rod break or bend. Nice long zipper that allows for ease in putting clothes in the bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderfully Clean Looking Suit Storage I recently bought 2 of the suit storage bags and boy am I glad I did. I was tired of looking at suits and sports coats just hanging in plastic bags. I was doing some spring cleaning and wanted to re-vamp our closet and brought these home. Super easy to put up and I just love the look. it keeps everything in place and nice and neat looking and now all I see is this natural looking storage bag and not a bunch of suits on hangers. As of right now, I have 4 suits (pants & jackets) hanging inside one storage bag and 4 sports coats hanging in the other. I would highly recommend these over the plastic bag type storage bags. It just neatened everything happy with this purchase and I even got them on sale, which allowed me to splurge on others items from the Container Store....which I absolutely love!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good option; always room for improvement I bought three of the suit bags and three of the dress bags for long-term storage in our attic. I held out on buying these until they went on sale. The assembly was fairly straightforward but the bottom frame is just a piece of cardboard -- had hoped for something more sturdy. Some suggestions for the manufacturer: - Reconsider the design of the interior hanging rack. Make grooves more defined. - Replace cardboard bottom frame with something less flimsy. - Consider adding spaces for label inserts. Maybe a plastic sleeve on each side so I can insert labels describing the contents. I have more than one of these in the attic. - Maybe add a clear PEVA window to one or two sides (Front & Rear?) of the bag. That way you get the best of breathable cotton and the visibility of clear plastic. I've been struggling to organize my closet for years and these are helping me immensely. Overall, I'm pleased with my purchase. It is like having several mini wardrobes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So impressed, I had to get two more! Don't be fooled into buying other garment bags. I think these are the best around and worth the money. I already had one and decided I needed more. After looking at what was available in my area, I ordered two more online at The Container Store. Really like how these garment bags keep the dust off those less-used clothes in my closet. Would love it if you opened The Container Store in my area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Attic Storage Bags Just received my 3 Natural Cotton Hanging Storage Bags. They were very easy to assemble. Perfect for keeping dust and bugs away from off season clothing in an unheated, ventilated attic. Very easy to load (clothes go in on hangers) and unload again. I didn't buy the longest one as I don't store gowns in the attic. Delighted with my purchase, they are just what I was looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for what I bought it for! I bought this storage bag not for clothes, but to hang my special hand-made Christmas ornaments for storage until next year. I wanted something breathable - so not plastic or vinyl - that would allow them to be hung up and keep them dust-free. This bag is the perfect size and construction!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I need I purchased two hanging suitbags to store my off-season and/or seldom worn jackets and slacks. It keeps them dust free and out of my main closet. I had a full length cotton garment bag, and the bottom portion was unused. It lasted for at least 10 years until I washed it. It shrank enough that it would not fit back on the frame. I recommend replacement rather than washing!

Community Q&A

I have several of these hanging garment bags from your store.  Are they washable in a standard home washing machine? Thank you for directions on cleaning them.

Asked by: Bonita60
We would recommend washing on a cold, delicate cycle and only air drying these pieces – do not put them in the dryer, even on a low heat cycle. Also note that there is a light starch on the bags to prevent wrinkles – this will more than likely come off in the washer so I’d expect that fabric to wrinkle (in which you can obviously steam out). You can also spot clean the fabric too.

Is the natural dress bag long and large enough for 2 women's winter coats and capes?

I have 2 winter wool coats & have both cashmere capes and wool capes. Would the natural dress bag be long enough and large enough to hold these items? I measured the length of the coats ( longest items) on hangers from the very top of collars to the hems, both equal 42-43" in length. Have a few short capes to store along with the coats.

Is metal frame removable?

I want to store items under my bed. To work the frame must be removed.
Asked by: Ray82
Yes you can take it out but ten the entire hanging element is gone. I guess you could stack the clothes. IMO they are not good all around. They collect dirt easily. You can find something better.

Do the clothing hangers hang inside the bag, or do they stick out of the top? Do they hang alogside the metal hangers that hold up the bag?

Asked by: KarBes
Clothing hangers are completely inside the bag on a sturdy interior rod. There are three outer hanger hooks that hang on a closet rod.

Is the 9-ounce cotton twill woven tightly enough to keep out carpet beetles and bed bugs?

The Natural Cotton Hanging Storage Bags, while tightly woven and secured, is not certified carpet beetle or bed-bug proof. We recommend an air-tight solution, such as our Weathertight Totes for complete pest resistance.
