    Keep in mind I have not used it “live” yet. This is a review based on in-house testing and physical appearance.

    Appears to be cotton as it says, hand washing and hang dry recommended. This is important to know for those who will use this separately for like say, meats. If you use, wash, and hang dry, you may not be able to use until the following day or 2, it may not have fully dried, especially if your in, say, San Francisco.

    Feels durable and appears to be able to carry up to the equavilent of 2 standard sized grocery bags. That may be considered overstuffed though. But still it held up pretty nice, I just wouldn’t fill with too much weight, like don’t do nothing but canned foods as it may not be strong enough or comfortable carrying with the thin straps. The bag stretches out nicely and though it doesn’t stand on its own, its still super easy to fill especially with items that have rounded edges (milk, cans, fruit), items with corners catch on the net so you may have to work a little to get it in there. These bags can be hand carried by the short handles or on your shoulder by the long straps, but these are not long enough to be used cross body. Too bad, I would’ve loved that. While empty and wadded, the bag is about the size of a grapefruit, this won’t fit in your pocket easily like some other bags. And if you have several of these or any other bags, your better off stowing them in one of those bags.

    Color listed is green and picture appears to be a dark forest green. However, mine is a BRIGHT green, just like a Crayola crayon or healthy green grass. I tried to take a picture of it but it still comes out dark green, weird, it doesn’t really want to show its true self on camera, like a vampire or something.

    All in all, this is a pretty nice sized bag, easy to carry, and reasonably priced at just under 6 bucks each.

    Arrived on time. Holds as much as a plastic grocery bag or half a standard paper bag. Fits my coat pocket. Several compliments on the pretty color. Built-up handles are pretty comfortable.

    I love this bag. The color is a bit brighter than the image, but just by a bit, which I don’t mind. I thought I would use the short handles the most, and was leery of having the shoulder/long handles, but it turns out that I use the long ones more often. The bag does look quite small, but it does expand. I think the largest load I have carried in it included: 2 cans of beans, 4 avocados, 2 boxes of cookies, bag of rice, green onions, and a few smaller odds and ends, like packs of gum. I just throw my phone and wallet into it when I head off to the store. Great for the farmer’s market or flea market, getting regular shopping, I even use it to carry my books back to the library. I love this bag and am thinking about getting a second. After using it, I thought it would be helpful to measure the dimensions of the empty bag for you. The mesh part, not including the handles is 20″ across from end to end of the opening, and 14.5″ from the top of the mesh just under the handles to the bottom of the bag. There is a 3″ drop from the middle of the short handles to the top of the bag, and 15-15.5″ drop from the middle of the shoulder-length handles to the top of the bag. All four of the straps are .5″ wide.
