Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive, but worth it! I bought these after having quite a bit of moth damage to my sweaters one year. These keep them protected and dust-free. They are sturdy enough to stack. You can see your sweaters and access them really easily with the "drop down" front flap. They are great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! I had a custom closet designer come to my home and give me a bid of $4,000 to do my closet. Instead, I opted to buy several of these sweater boxes, the plastic drop front shoe boxes and the huggable hangers, and I couldn't be happier. I now have a place for everything and can see my folded items and shoes easily without having to rummage through drawers or boxes. My closet looks great and I saved a ton of money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant and Efficient These are fabulous, I now have a wall of them and they are stunning, easy to use and easy to MOVE - if you change address every couple of years great way to keep items on display but also neatly packed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One more step to closet joy These are really sturdy and sophisticated looking additions to my reach-in closet, helping me to make order out of chaos. I'm taking off one star only because each box holds less than I though it would. They are perfect for thinner sweaters and cardis, but they're too small for some of my thicker, longer sweaters. I wish I could fit a bit more in each box. Having said that, they are the best solution I've seen for the price and take up relatively little room in my closet for the amount they do hold. I have five of them stacked and they're stable even though they don't interlock in any way. Thinking about buying a few more to help organize my linen closet. The drop-front is simply genius.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scarf Selection I used 3 of these "sweater" bins for storage of my winter scarves and pashminas. I have an armoire in the bedroom that was originally used for a television, but serves as extra storage for my bed linens on the top shelf, and where the TV was, is where I put these sweater boxes, and in the drawers are other winter accessories such as hats, gloves, ski wear, etc. It's a perfect place because I can easily see the color of wrap I wish to wear and I can keep them all very well protected with a couple moth sachets.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from ideally it would work Ideally this would work. however you need many of them and if your sweaters are not the same size it is hard to store together. No color choices and the light color may fade/ get dirty easily. love how it is drop front, you can stack them and be organized. you will need many of them and they are expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not just for Sweaters! I purchased 8 of these drop lid boxes, not for sweaters, but for purses! Perfect! The boxes keep them visible, and dust free. This worked out great for my closet, because I did not want to give up any hanger space that most other purse storage requires.
Date published: 2014-04-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Purse storage I've purchased a couple of these and stacked them (tall) for purse storage. Very functional, but at $30 a pop, it will unfortunately be a bit before I purchase more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and perfect! I am going through a major decluttering and my closet was the worst. The cats pass through my closet to my bathroom (where their litter boxes are), and I had litter dust over everything! I cleaned all the clothes and hangers and then got rid of clothes I didn't like or were too big ('lost a lot of weight). These sweater boxes are larger than I needed; I was so happy! I have one for long-sleeved sweaters and one for short-sleeved sweaters. The boxes stay closed, no dust gets in them, and they look mighty classy on the shelf in my HUGE walk-in closet. I wish I needed more; they're so pretty!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Solid Purchase I am using them to organize table cloths and linens that don't fit in my kitchen drawer and must be stored elsewhere. They are of solid construction and hold quite a few items. I was worried that I would need a third, but I haven't filled the two of them yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Just what you would imagine if you imagined the perfect sweater box. The box is sturdy, the drop front works effortlessly. The fabric is attached flawlessly. They stack without sagging. Best purchase I have made in years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic The boxes are very well made. You can see your sweaters and it held more sweaters than I thought. I am going to buy a few more and re do my entire closet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but could be better I have similar smaller drop front sweater storage boxes and I thought I would be getting the same but bigger. What's different here is that there is no inner block of cedar to enable you to keep sweaters in a mothproof environment. Listen up Container Store this is a simple change to your design. Other than that, they serve the purpose for which they were intended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Addition I had originally bought this for my sweaters, but realized that it is also great for my Vera Bradley tote bags. This is a wonderful addition to my closet!
Date published: 2013-12-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Way to Store Sweaters Wonderful for storing sweaters, especially since I can actually see which sweaters are in each box. I have two closets -- one for clothes I'm wearing now and one for out-of-season clothes. With these boxes, I can easily move my sweaters from one closet to the other at the end of a season without having to refold and box them as I did when I simply stacked the sweaters on shelves in my in-season closet. The composition of the boxes is much better for the sweaters than the plastic boxes I used previously for storage. I'll be buying more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant & Affordable! These are perfect for displaying and protecting my high end, shoulder bags. Bought one to try and as soon as it was delivered I ordered 4 more!
Date published: 2013-10-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The drop-front is great! Excellent, well constructed boxes. The drop-front feature is great, because I don't have to move the box to open it. A row of these boxes in my closet acts as a de facto shelf upon which I can place additional items. The sweater box is just right for storing my hats. All in all, these boxes make the most of limited closet space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I feel so organized These drop front boxes are not only a stylish way to organize the closet, but they are very well made and sturdy. They are big enough to hold 3-4 pairs of women's jeans. I have 10 and they hold everything from jeans to t-shirts. I love the way they look!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versitile Storage I too am using these storage boxes to store handbags & handbag accessories. My closet is air conditioned and I prefer my items to be enclosed to eliminate dust. These boxes suit my purpose to a T.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, but... I bought just one to see if it was truly functional as it appeared. I got it for my heels hoping to get a couple of pair in one container/box. It is great quality and very convenient, but.... I can not fit my higher heels in the box without laying them down which defeats the purpose!!!!!! Don't get me wrong for my shorter (4" and below) heels it works...but I have more 5" and above heels. It says 8" high, but high, stiletto heels don't work very well in box. Overall I say go for it. I'm very picky, so this review is for those who can relate! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE I purchased one of these to hold and protect my cardigans. I currently have 9 in there, folded into 2 stacks, and there is still room for more without stuffing them. It looks expensive and beautiful, and is very sturdy. I will be purchasing another for my other sweaters.

Community Q&A

How many thicker/heavier sweaters can fit in one of these boxes?

I really like the look of these boxes but most of my sweaters are thicker cable knits and I want to know how many thicker sweaters fit in one box? All the pictures seem to show thinner sweaters. I don't think the price will be worth it, however, if I can only fit 1-2 per box. Thanks to anyone who can help!
Asked by: Moey
You should be able to fit three sweaters, based on my husband fitting his slightly bulky men's sweaters.

Can 5 or 6 of these stack without collapsing?

I have an armoire that I would like to fill with these, but need to know if they will hold up to being stacked 6 high when filled with sweaters and tshirts.

I have them stacked 3 high and filled with sweaters, and they are holding up very well.

How does the drop-front panel fix? Does it seal?

I'm interested in whether the drop-front panel fixes all round to form a seal against moths. Is it hook-and-look (velcro) all round?

How strong are these?

I'm looking for something to hide my cable box and kids Xbox. Could I place out flat screen tv with stand on top of two of these next to each other?
Asked by: Winewolf3
We wouldn't recommend placing more than 10-15 pounds on these boxes, they are constructed from fiberboard so they would not be strong enough to hold a flat screen tv.
