Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I’ve been using 6 of these for my laundry for a couple of years now. They are a great size, durable, easy to clean and light weight. Wish they came in a dark grey which would make the look a lot better in the laundry room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job. We are a two people family and three of these will collect about 5-7 days worth of laundry. Very efficient, easy to carry and easy to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size for tight areas Originally thought I would use them to sort clothing by colors, whites, etc., then ended up keeping in three different locations throughout the house because they are so portable and take up less floor space than having a bulky, low-to-the-floor laundry basket in each bedroom. I love the ventilation holes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful laundry basket These are super handy. Their low profile size means I can stick one in between things in each bedroom. I threw a trash bag in one for my boy teenagers room, since he somehow produces more trash than one person should. They are easy to carry up and down the stairs because of their size. The quality is great. I use daily but none have cracked or warped. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect fit Purchased 2 of these to help with sorting in my linen closet in master bath. They are just the right size and the handles make them easy to carry to the laundry room. Love them

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love These Hampers These are perfect for my kids! No lids means their clothes have to go in them! And they are slender enough to literally put anywhere in the room and they are out of the way!! I have to kids bring them to the laundry room and they are super sturdy! Would purchase again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the whole family! I bought just one for each person in the house. Instead of sorting I use them to track how often I do laundry. The size is perfect for one full load. I sort as needed before I place each piece in the washer and/or dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Sturdy and just as pictured. Love that it's made in the USA too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mostly great! Ok so I bought three of these to be my sorting hampers to replace the soft sided bags that hang on a metal cart sort of hamper I already had. Well, they dont really "lock" in place like I expected them to. They hook together really loosely, like not really at all. But still great hampers that can be cleaned easily. A little skinnier than I thought also, but not by much. Overall they still worked for me, but just would like them to really snap or lock onto each other.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Saves time on laundry! As a family of 6, I do massive amounts of laundry. To save time, I decided that everyone in our house would have to sort their laundry into the correct basket as soon as they undress. I currently have 9 of these baskets lined up in my master closet, each labeled. Whites, lights, darks, jeans, delicates, sheets & towels, & dry cleaning. Now that my kids are older, I've had to add a few more baskets. We now have baskets labeled Girls' Darks, Boys' Darks, and Dad's Darks (because all of our darks don't fit in one load and I really don't want my stuff washed with the boys' sweaty, stinky laundry!). Now, each morning I grab one basket, wash, fold, and then make the kids put away their own laundry. It really makes the never-ending task of keeping up with SO much laundry so much less overwhelming. I just ordered 3 more baskets for my boys' closet (whites, jeans, and darks). I took away one star because the handles of the baskets snap off fairly easily, but because of the slim design, I am able to line a lot of these baskets up without taking up as much room as an ordinary basket.

What is the volume of one basket?

I have a large capacity front load washer and I'd like to know if one of these baskets full of laundry would fill up my washer.
Asked by: jasper77
I use a 13 gallon CostCo trash liner in it, so I estimate it to be equal to about 45 quart, or 11.25 gallon.

Could these be used to store rolls of wrapping paper?

Asked by: Keri

Can these be hooked together the other way, handle to handle?

Asked by: Psalm119
Not as seamlessly but you could use zip ties or velcro straps to hold the handles together.

Can more than 3 hampers be connected?

Asked by: Mertel
Yes, I have 4 in my closet. One side of the basket has a hook on the edge so you could connect them infinitely.

Non-handle sides flat?

Are the (non-handle) sides flat enough that they could rest in a plywood frame which had rectangular cutouts? This would be for a ‘tip-out’ built-in hamper in a walk in closet...
Asked by: Schoonie
Not flat at top. Small curved “lip” on non-handle sides, more pronounced on one of the sides than the other, which is how the hampers connect one to the other (larger lip of one hamper lies over smaller lip on other).
