Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by debdeb Good value for scouting activity.
The bags were a smaller size but a great activity for girl scout activity. Girls designed their own bag and had a great time.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by PreDirector Not right size
Purchased these for a specific need and so I checked the size before ordering. They are an inch to an inch and a half smaller in height and width then stated in description. Disappointing. Because my dogs decided to rip up the bag they came in, guess I can't return them.
Quality was as expected.

I have purchased these canvas backpacks for our VBS the last 3 years. We have had a couple of the draw strings come disconnected, but other than that everything has been sewn well and the bags have held up for a week of use. They tend to be on the smaller side. Picture a water bottle and a swimsuit. You would have a difficult time fitting a towel into one of these bags but they work for our intended purpose.

I purchased these bags for a craft project for VBS. We tie dyed the white bags and they turned out great! The quality was good for the price. The bags were a little small for our older youth class, but all age groups really enjoyed this craft projects. It was a hit!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by greencrvgirl A bit small for our purposes
We purchased these for a craft event with kids 8-11 years old. For the smallest children they were an acceptable size but on the older children they were too small and at times awkward to put on. They hold a surprising amount when stuffed, but then you can't wear them as backpacks. The quality was fine, except for the size. Kids used fabric markers and self-adhesive stickers and had fun. However, in the future I will consider other alternatives first.

I got these for a camp and they were of decent quality but you should note the size. They are smaller than a normal drawstring bag. Big enough for Bible, Journal,and pen but not much else. Worked for our purposes but were smaller than I expected.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CraftyCPFumc Great price for large project
We used the backpacks instead of t-shirts to eliminate the size issue.
Because it was cotton, we used an inkjet printer to make a 2 x 3" iron on transfer to put the vbs logo and our church info on the top corner. They could use sharpies, fabric pens, fabric paint, and glue on shapes, glitter, and other jewels as well.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TTime Not so happy
Several of the backpacks were coming apart at the seam on the right side or the strings that hold the backpack on were sewed into the seam. I did not have time to return and replace them - they were definitely NOT worth the money

This is the second time I have ordered these bags for use at a children's camp and I was very satisfied. The bags were large enough for the children (ages 6-12) to carry notebooks, water bottles and a change of clothes. Even the adults found them useful. I've had no issues with them breaking or unraveling, and the children had a great time being creative and decorating them. The only issue I had this time was that they smelled kind of musty but once I took them out of the box and let them air out it was fine. I will definitely be buying these bags again!
