I'm using these as party favor bags for my 6 year old's birthday. No, they won't last forever, but they look really cute. They are a little lighter weight than most reusable shopping bags, so I imagine they'll last for a while. A few were kind of wrinkled when we got them, so we just let them lay flat for a while. They'll do fine. Probably not good for lots of heavy books, but for a few coloring books and crayons they'll be perfect.

Good For The Price
I got these for a Chuck E Cheese's party to hold party favors, tickets and prizes to be won. These messenger bags are big, adult size. Colors bright with two of each color. The material is thin, similar to disposable totes and the straps will break at the seam where it is sewn to the bag if anything of real weight goes in the bag. All of the bags did hold for the whole party and a few days afterwards with the children using it to carry their toys around. A few parents told me that their kids liked them so much that they sewed the handles back on for them and haven't had any problems since. These were a big hit at my daughter's party. The kids liked them so much that even the 5 and 6 years old girls who normal would fight over the pink and purple ones was happy with getting a blue, green, yellow or orange. Yes, I would get these again.

thin, coarse, wrinkled, twisted, damaged
many bags had cut marks in them so I had to throw them away.

Perfect for our party
We needed satchels to use for an Indiana Jones birthday party. These worked perfectly for the 7 year olds! They loved the colors and couldn't wait to fill the bags with the treasures they would find along the way. These bags are made just as they are priced. Don't expect to use long term. Perfect for our needs.

Not worth the money
I purchased these bags for book bags for my class. We put 1 paperback book and 1 paper folder with 6 pages inside. By day 4 I had resewn/reattached straps on 24/28 bags. Rediculous.

The handles tore off all of the bags within the first hour. Very disappointing!!

Not Super Sturdy but Expected that for Price
Other reviews are accurate that the material is flimsy, but we used as party goody bags and it worked out well for us. They are very colorful and the kids loved them. They had gotten prizes during the party and then had a place to stash their stuff. Parents thought that it was a different twist on a goody bag and I see some of the kids use them now (to bring light toys to the playground... etc...). So, if you are looking for a sturdy bookbag - this is not for you - if you are looking for a cute bag for kids and light stuff - this works.

Not quite what I was expecting, but they will work
I bought these as the goody bags for my 3-year old's birthday party. They are brightly colored and will work for this use for sure. The material is not what I expected. It is very thin, not cotton or canvas, but for the price I guess I should have expected that. The strap is nice and actually the size of the bag is very good. It could be used by kids or adults for lightweight items like a change of clothes or pair of shoes. Overall, happy with item especially considering the cost.
