Great product! Exactly what I was looking for!

from Megan on Sun, Dec. 31, 2017

I purchased 20 of these to make draw string bags for our Disneyland trip! I used HTV on them and put in my heat press. I worried about it melting but it worked great even without a Teflon sheet!!

from Brandi on Sat, Nov. 14, 2009

I purchased several of these for my children to take some of their belongings on a long road trip. They held up to kids' stuffing them very full and being hauled in and out of a van and everything else my kids dished out just fine! I was very happy with the colors also. Sturdy, Good size, Super easy to store

These packs, The only complaint I have is that a few of them came with the rope a little damaged. For the price I can't complain!

When you can get you hands on these they are great
5
from Brodie on Wed, Nov. 18, 2009

When you can get you hands on these they are great. Really wanted the large bags but settled for these and what a steal they are. Better than we figured they would be turned them in to ball and cleat bags for my soccer team. Everyone loved them, they took the embroidery like a dream. Stayed smooth and didn't snag. Would and will get many more of these in the future.

Great quality bag
4
from Tracy on Sun, Dec. 15, 2013

Great quality bag. The ropes and nylon are very durable and they do not feel like the cheap/thin materials used in a lot of free bag giveaways. I ordered the orange and it was almost neon or the color of a construction worker's vest. I had to return for another color as the orange was very different from the orange shirts I had made.

Great versetile bag!
5
from Harold on Sun, Mar. 12, 2017

This is a great versatile bag. I bought a few to use for different things. I use one bag as a lunch bag to hold my snacks at work. I use the other bag as a workout bag when I go to the gym. These bags have many uses and at such a good price, its hard to pass them up! Don't hesitate. Get a bag today!

Perfect cheerleader bags
5
from Andrea on Thu, June 27, 2019

I purchased these to make the youth cheer squad personalized bags to carry items to and from practice and games. The bags are good size, great quality, and htv adheres well. They turned out great everyone is in love with them. I have purchased over 30 of these and only 1 had a unraveled string that I will have to replace and 1 had a spot on it. I recommend these bags for your teams! The photo’s are all Jiffy items the bags have a hoodie and t shirt up to adult large in them with room to spare.

Love these!
5
from Kelly on Sun, Nov. 25, 2018

I am very happy with these. They hold a lot & are perfect for my children to stuff it full and the wear of everyday use. I ordered 2 to start with and like all items I like to test them & see how they hold up, wash and quality before I purchase for customers. I am very happy with these & they have held up great! I still have to see how they do with HTV or Screen print but will revise comment once I am finished and add a picture.

from Jennifer on Mon, Apr. 2, 2018

Used these with HTV for soccer cleats, ball, water bottle, and shin guards for my daughter. (Shes only 3, so has a size 3 ball) this is perfect! I knotted the cords to make the straps shorter for her, but she loves it! Will order more, when I find out who needs a new soccer backpack!

from Lynn on Sat, Mar. 2, 2019

Got these as gifts for swim team to put their silly banana mascot on and they are such a great bag. Really good quality, much nicer and thicker than expected. Took htv vinyl really well and didn't leave burn marks. Good standard size, not too small. The kids will love these bags!

This was the first time we tried these at our tournament and they were tremendously popular. Many stated they wanted the next size up but for others it was the perfect size. Tournament logo looked great, but not enough room for the team list as well. Decorated: Printing

from Van on Sat, Dec. 3, 2011

I bought these for gifts to applique & embroider. Although they say "small", they're anything but. Great for kids & adults! The material is thin, but based on how well it took embroidery, I expect they'll hold up well. You can't beat the price and color options!

Love the easy to press front! Great size. I used lower heat temp and less pressure to adhere vinyl...turned out great. Ordered early in the morning as I needed them quickly, but it took 3 days to get here. Be aware of the next day advertisement.

Good quality at an affordable price. Love these backpacks. I embroider them for gifts and also embroidered some for my daughter's cross country team. The kids loved them. A great inexpensive way to have something everyone on a team can have.

An excellent value for the money - a cheap bag that is not reusable would have been the same price - this was fun/ colorful/ and earth-friendly - the kids are using them after the party for gym stuff, etc.

I used the heat press on this back at 270 degrees for about 15 seconds. It did not melt in the press. I tried longer and the glue came through the back but at 270 for 15 seconds it was perfect.
