These totes were very nice totes
from Wendy on Sun, Dec. 28, 2014

These totes were very nice totes. Great in size and the inside pocket is big enough to hold items. I used heat transfer vinyl and they pressed beautifully!

Great bag, HTV a little tricky
from Samantha on Mon, July 31, 2017

This is a very big sturdy bag I plan to use as a teacher bag. I have a heat press, but haven't invested in pressing pillows yet, and at times the vinyl can be a little difficult to adhere. I've put designs on 4 of these bags, but only had real problems with one. Might not be great for heat press beginners.

We got these bags for our cheer team and they ended up being too big for what we wanted
from Sherri on Thu, Nov. 27, 2008

We got these bags for our cheer team and they ended up being too big for what we wanted. The kids couldn't find their stuff in the bag - theres no separate compartments. I use mine for a beach bag now, and it's perfect.

Mom tote
from Jennifer on Sun, July 1, 2018

I call this my mom tote. So you know it’s gotta hold up well. Straps are thick and wide enough to sling over your arm. Bag was tough and made it through our Disney trip. Will definitely be ordering more.

Great bag for HTV projects!
from Jessica on Fri, Feb. 21, 2020

I love this bag! They are actually pretty big and I ended up using HTV to decorate it and made it a work bag. I get so many compliments on it! The best part is that its zippered and also has a little pouch on the inside for some little stuff. I'll definitely order more!

Larger than expected
from Natalee on Sat, Feb. 16, 2019

This bag is HUGE! It fits so much and is very durable. Kind of tricky to apply HTV to but if you know what you're doing it's not too hard to figure out the sweet spot. The only things I don't like is that they use chemicals to make this bag that are deemed unsafe in California and you have no idea until you receive the bag and see the disclaimer attached to it. Sometimes they come damaged as well, not often but out of the 5 I purchased 1 had rips in the body of the bag.

Large Tote Tiny Handles
from Spencer on Mon, Nov. 26, 2018

The space and amount of rings this bag can hold still exceeds my expectations. However, they are handles and I wouldn’t really consider them straps. Pretty uncomfortable to carry. Great for decorating.
