Bright Drawstring Bags
Field Trip Bag
I bought these bags to give to my 4th graders for our upcoming field trip. They will use these to carry items needed for the trip, such as, a change of clothes, water bottle, games, books, etc. I believe these will work just fine. They are nice and deep. The students will not be carrying anything too heavy so I believe they will be durable enough. I did notice however, that they will not fit on my back and so larger children may not be able to wear them on their back, but they can still carry them!

I used these for "World Travel" party for all the souvenirs collected along the way. The kids liked the colors, but they were a little hard to use while on their backs. Too bad the drawstring didn't fully cinch the bag tightly, it only had a few connections and bag didn't shut tight. They are thin "recycled" material had some tears in a few, but for the most part the size was nice.

Great giveaway that embroiders beautifully!
These bags are pretty good - definately not a high-end duffle bag, but a great giveaway to stuff with favors. They are made like the reusable grocery bags so popular now. While they may not take an iron-on so well, they work extremely well in an embroidery machine. I used stiff tear-away stabilizer and didn't need top stabilizer. I wasn't hopeful since this is basically paper, but they came out beautifully!

Just what I expected!
I read the previous reviews, and got a good idea of what I was getting! Thank you guys! The Magenta is red, the matieral is thin, but breathable, and I wouldn't want to put anything heavy in them. But it will work great for party favors or as a light bag for the beach (towel & flipflops at most)! The size, 16 1/2 is correct and just what I needed for my party!

Good basic bag
The ad for this product descibes one color as magenta, which surprisingly, turned out to be unquestionably a true red. The product fabric is a thin but durable, paper-like feeling Tyvek-type. If you're looking for a very basic quality, multi-use duffle style bag, this will suit your needs, i.e. good for school stuff, kids sleepover bags, favor bags at parties, beach stuff, etc.

Beware of colors!
The 'magenta' is actually RED! I purchased other items to coordinate with these bag colors, thinking magenta (like hot pink). Then the bags arrived and they were RED! The blue and purple colors show pretty true on the website.
The bags are rather thin, and cheaply constructed, but you get what you pay for. Definitely NOT woven, not even nylon - they seem more like heavy-duty stabilizer fabric (if you sew, you kow what I'm talking about :) However, they worked great for party favor bags. Nice large size!
