I adore my Chico Bags and so does anyone else who sees them. I've had my original set for over five years now. They wash like a dream and are very durable. I clip them all together and leave them in the front seat (they hardly take up any space) of my car so I don't forget to take them in the store with me. They also make a great gift!!!
This a really great bag. It can hold a lot of stuff and heavy stuff at that. Yet it folds small enough to fit in my bag or pocket. This is the kind of reusable bag a person will not forget at home.
the chicobags smoosh down into their own little attached carrying bag. They are compact so I always have one with me. I bought some 6-7 years ago and am replenishing my supply because I lent my old ones and did not get them back.
They're well made, colorful, compact, wonderfully designed and I am thrilled to have an alternative to using single use produce bags. Thank you, Chico Bags!!
These are great bags. I have given alot of them as gifts. They wash up great also.
I use the stand-up Earth Tote bags (also great!) when making a planned trip to the grocery store, but I carry two of these bags folded in the side pocket of my purse for other shopping, or in case I forget the Earth Tote bags for grocery shopping. They fold up in a flash and don't take up any real space in my purse, and are super-light. The handles are made of the same material as the bag itself, which I think would make them a bit easier to fold and store than the Flip & Tumble bags - but I can't say that for sure since I haven't seen the Flip & Tumble bags in person. I highly recommend the Chico Bags!!!
These are great bags, so small you can always have 1 or 2 in the glove box.
I carry one of these bags in my purse incase I make an unplanned trip to the store or if I need a bag for some other reason. They are light and compact.
Love the Chico bags. I have about 10 of them. Very convenient, easy to use and take up very little space. Purchased them for presents.
Chico Bags are a great solution for people who routinely forget their green grocery bags miles away in the parking lot of the store. Just stuff one in a pocket or purse and never have to make that mad dash out of the checkout line to fetch your bags again. I love these things!
I bought these as a Christmas present for a friend who wanted to make a statement at the grocery store. She loved this compact and adorable little bags and especially liked the clip. They were a perfect complement to the other bags that made up her gift. Also, I saw them at a store I was in recently and they were priced higher than I got them for on the reuseit site. All around a great purchase and experience. Keep up the good work!
I have owned a number of Chico bags and often give them as gifts. Recently, I was on an extended family vacation and gave one to each of my family members. A few of them were used the first day for purchases on our trip. I carry two of them with me all the time. They take up very little space, are easy to open, come in a lovely variety of colors and are inexpensive. Please continue to have Chico bags available for purchase on your webasite. This is a great product!
I love the Chico bags. They are reasonably priced. I have bought quite a few over the years. I keep one in my purse at all times, and store one or two in the car as well in the glove box. They are washable, non toxic and colorful. They are a convenient size for carrying with a full load and very sturdy. I bought one for all my friends for a stocking stuffer. No more plastic bags!!!!!
First off these bags are acessable i take them everywhere just incase i need to pop into a store. Theyre very sturdy! i was able to put around 10 cans and acouple of bottles into one bag. they look great and i would definitly recommend these to everyone! Infact im getting everybody in my family these as a stocking stuffer for christmas!
These are very handy, light, and the price is right. Small enough to keep in your purse, which is great for drug store purchases and the like.
I love the ChicoBags. I've been using them for years and always find occasions to give them as gifts: teachers, stocking stuffers, etc. This one was purchased for a basket auction donation with the theme "Shop Till You Drop"--they can at least use re-usable bags!
Makes for a great gift (teacher, hard to buy for, etc.). I often combine this reusable bag along with a gift certificate to a health food store (Whole Foods or Trader Joes). Every so often, I purchase several of them to just have them on hand and then I'm ready to give them as gifts. Also, the clip on the bag allows me to always have one clipped to my purse. No plastic or paper for me!
Just finished using the bags in the manner for which they were intended & they accomplished their mission easily. They are also good to throw around the house at folks when playing bag-tag (if you're hit w/ one, you're IT--word of caution...remove the carabiner first) & hacky-sack. Small enough to fit in one's pocket & large & strong enough to handle a fair amount of heavy groceries & colorful enough to be somewhat cool.
So compact, I can have one even in a small purse. Now I always have a bag with me! Folds up easily. I also use it as a lunch bag. I'm ordering more! The only caveat - the shoulder straps aren't that long so if you want one to comfortably go over your shoulder, I'd check out the Chicco one designed for that.
I have 2 of these myself, and decided to buy 6 for christmas gifts this year. Everyone that I gave one to absolutely loves them and the idea of them! Great idea. I definitely am going to buy more, I need one for each vehicle!
I confess, I used the low price on this little bag to "round out" my order so I could use a free shipping code--but it turned out to be a really great bag! Love the mini carabiner on the side and how easily you can shove the bag back into its attached pouch. Sometimes little bags are hard to fold up as small as they were when you first got them, but this one is easy to keep small. Thinking about buying more as stocking stuffers!
I bought my first Chicobag in the grocery store in Mendocino, CA, but I loved it so much that I ordered 5 more from this site when I got back home. Great gifts, amazingly roomy, beautiful colors, and small enough to carry anywhere. Plus, I love the fact that the small bag to stuff it in is actually part of the construction. That way, I don't lose it...
I bought these and had many comments on them in the grocery store. I love them!
Bought the bags to give as holiday gifts for the people in my office. I found the quality to be good and the size to be perfect for carrying a few things from the grocery store. The compacted size is also perfect for keeping in a purse. They were worth the price.
I love these bags. I am giving the batch I just bought as gifts,since everyone was coveting them at the camping trip.
I purchased over a dozen of these as stocking stuffers for Christmas. The color selection is great. All the colors are rich and uniform. There is a color for everyone. The men will get the darker, more masculine colors and the girls will get the brighter colors. The pink is really cute! These unfold and restuff easily into their own attached pouch (no special folding needed). I think they will come in handy not just for shopping. They can be used as a tote, extra luggage in travel or camping. They are small enough to fit in a small purse. They can be left in a car; attatched to camping gear; clipped to a jacket or belt loop. They are as nice as I expected. Even purchased one for my stocking. Thanks.
So far so good! Thanks!
Ordered five of the colorful chico bags to encourage my family to stop using plastic bags. What I really like are the bright colors and the stowage bag is sewn to the inside of the shopping bag, so you don't worry about losing it and also provides a purchase for restuffing it which is very easy to do. I also love the wide straps in the shoulders so they don't cut into your shoulders when heavy and the carabiner so it can attach to a purse, backpack, etc. This is a great product at a reasonable price.
I first bought some Chicobag about a year ago. I was sick of using plastic and wanted something durable yet very compact to keep attached to my purse or camera bag when I was out. These bags hold more than any plastic bag I have ever used. Shoppers around me are dumbfounded as I fill it with more and more and more. It's wonderful. Also, they are far stronger being made of fabric. Plus, I have gotten so many compliments on these it's amazing. Every time I unfold one, people smile.
I love the many colors to choose from with this bag, bought one in blue, mango, pink, and green! very strong. compact carrying case, easy to throw into my purse and carry anywhere.
Best Reusable Bag that I ever use! Since using Chicobags, I have never forgotten to bring them whenever I go out. 2 Chicobags always come with me, one hanging on my keychain and one sitting pretty in my bag, ready to be used anytime needed. I am proud to say that I have avoided using hundreds of plastic bags that could have littered Taiwan land and water.
as if these needed another review. absolutely the best in terms of bright attractive colors and being easy to use. quickly stuffs into the little tiny stuffsacks that are attached and won't get lost. finished seams so no raw edges inside to start fraying after some use. great bags.
I love chicobags. They are so easy and convenient. They hold a lot of weight when grocery shopping. The best part is that they fit inside my purse so I never forget them. I highly recommend this item.
Service was good and prompt...product was just as shown on website...very pleased with bags...
I keep several of the bags in my purse and love the fact that I always have several with me. I also have given them as gifts. I have shown them to friends and they also love the fact that they are so compact.
I bought 5 bags in green and they are fantastic. They unfold easily in the store, though it does take me several minutes to fold them all back up once I unload the groceries. I've gotten a lot of compliments from the baggers about how much each bag holds. I can get all the produce in one, all dry goods in another, all frozen/fridge stuff in another etc. For ease of use, I unfold them all as soon as I grab a shopping cart and drape them over the seat to avoid the awkwardness of bringing your own bags once you get to the checkout line. They've held up really well so far, even through the wash!
I love the little chico bag with the clip. It is clipped onto my purse strap so I always have at least one grocery bag with me. I usually forget the non-food places like the card store, Target, shoe store. With the Chico bag, it is always with me. Great little bag.
I love these bags. I have ten: I tend to do all my grocery shopping once a month, so I need that many at one time. It's possible the checkout bagger is annoyed with them, as they don't sit up while filled ... but they could easily be hung over the plastic bag frame and used that way ... mine just haven't done that yet. Anyway, unlike the bags stores are selling now, these are tiny when not in use, and this makes them much more likely (for me, anyway) to go INTO the store with me. Those other ones were in my trunk and therefore nearly always forgotten. These are also easily washed. I like that the handles are contiguous and not sewn on; one less thing to go wrong!
Of all the bags I have purchased this one is the most dependable. Good size, easy to carry, wears like iron. As my canvas bags give out I will replace them with these great little bags.
I've had these bags for a year and they are wonderful! They are well made and have held up over many, many, many trips to the store. The baggers at the grocery store say that they are easy use.
This bag stuffs small enough to fit into *my* purse and I carry a very small purse - usually one of those mini-hobo styles. I've only actually used it once. We were flying from Denver to Raleigh and bought 5 sandwiches for the plane. The deli placed them in 3 paper bags which were hard to handle with all the other stuff we were carrying. I put the three paper bags inside the ChicoBag along with the 5 snack size bags of chips. Now I could slip the loop of the ChicoBag over my arm and could easily carry the other stuff we had as well.
Believe it or not, Here I am in Kazakhstan (Central Asia) where I live and work. I take my Chico Bags when I go shopping and they are a hit and the shopkeepers want to swap their bags for mine. I'm heading back to California soon for a visit and I will have an order of bags to take back with me. They are a brilliant product; light and strong. Congratulations on a greatly admired product.
LOVE these bags. Great for carrying around, saved lots and lots of plastic bags. Gave them to my dad for Father's Day- my mom already stole one from him.
love them - gave all my friends some for christmas.
I LOVE Chico Bags. Got a good price at this site. The bags are always with me. I often can be found giving one to an interested person so they will kick the plastic habit. My way of saving the earth one bag at a time.
I get so many compliments on the Chico bags that I use at check-out counters everywhere. I have them snapped onto my purse and always at hand to use. Love them and gift them often!!
The ChicoBags are great! I love that they come in their own little pouch that stays attached while using the bag, and they have a clip so that you can keep them handy. They are also very sturdy. I ordered one of every color and gave them out to friends!
A very good friend of mine gave me one several years ago. Not only does this bag hold an amazing amount of stuff, its compact size and clip let me keep it attached to my keys. The beauty of this is that it reminds me to bring my other bags to re-use. Before I had this, I kept forgetting to bring them, but with this hanging on my keys I can't forget! When I finally run out of saved grocery store bags, I am definitely going to get more of these.
In Past 8-10 months I have ordered several Chico and work horse style bags and given them to my family and friends.I keep at least four of them in my car's glove compartment and take them when I go to Super market .I bring home minimum plastic bags from the stores and this has helped me with unnecessary waste of plastic bags. Reusable bags work great for me.I wsh them in the washing machine with cold water and mild soap and hang dry them I have absolutely nothing to complain. Very satisfied customer.
I love this bag. I have purchased 8 total and given them away to friends and family. It is always in my purse (and one in my husband's car). We haven't used disposable bags (either paper or plastic) in about a year!
I now have a total of 8 of these clipped on to my purse. Great bags, well worth the investmest.
Great size - comparable to a plastic shopping bag. Nice fit in my purse too. Good color selection and I like that the bag folds into its own carrying case w/ a carabiner to hook onto your bag.
ChicoBags are the best! I've been using mine for about 9 months now and I love it. It is attached to my keychain, so when I run into a store and forget my big reusable bags in the van, I always have my ChicoBag. I love them so much that I convinced my kids' school to do a fundraiser, and we sold over $500 worth!
I have been using these bags for a long time and I always come back for more. They really are awesome. The handles are perfect for slinging several bags over your arm. they hold a ton. and they are perfectly bright and colorful. I reccommend them to everybody.
These bags are great. The colors are very strong & vibrant and I can really load up at the store. Although they are not super big, they are big enough and I don't have to worry about overloading them with more than I should carry.
The bags I ordered are great! I am going to be traveling for an extended period of time, and plan to use them for groceries and souvenirs. Thanks!
Great product! A little smaller than what I thought but very convenient to carry in my purse. The clip that comes with it doesn't work very well but I don't really use that part anyways. I've had a lot of good comments made on this bag. I would definitely consider buying more.
The product was exactly what was expected. Thank you
love to clip one on the inside of my purse so I ALWAYS have a re-usable bag when I need it.
I've been using these bags for a few weeks now and love them. I can easily fit 4 or 5 in my (not very large) purse when I go to the grocery store and in my glove box the rest of the time, so I have them when I need them. The integral storage bag is really clever and easy to pack/unpack (you just turn the empty bag inside out and stuff the shopping bag inside.) They seem solidly put together, with strong fabric and seams, so I'm confident that they'll last well. Good price for a quality and well-thought-out product.
I love the Chicobags. I already had some from my wife buy before, but I didnt have enought to cover the trips to the grocery store for our family shopping, so I went on here and purchased more. They make me feel like I am making a difference for the planet by not using those plastic bags you always get at the grocery stores. They hold alot more than any plastic bag could and are very sturdy. No more busted plastic bags when you to lift up the bags from the car into the house. I would recommend them to any and everyone who goes grocery shopping and want to have a reliable way to transport your food home. The different colors available make it fun to carry as well.
Great, thank you! I would get rid of the drawstring on the bag because it is not necessary to keep the bag tightly tied up.
This is the greatest bag and I use mine over and over. I keep one attached to my purse for quick trips into the store. For bigger trips, I keep four more in my car. I give them as gifts and have ordered them several times for that purpose. The way they fold up into themselves makes them indispensable. If they get dirty, a quick rinse and a quick dry is all you need. Bam! Right back on the purse they go!
I love my chico bags! I take them everywhere and get so many compliments. Everyone is amazed at how they fold up and the bag is attached. I couldn't be happier with these bags. Thanks reusuablebags.com!!!
These bags were used as party favors at my daughters Eco-friendly baby shower--they were a hit and everyone wanted to know where I got them. They are convenient, stylish, and very durable. They hold a lot and keep me in bags (I used to leave them in the car; they fit in my purse. Highly recommend
I ordered the bags for all our teachers in our Child Care Center during Faculty Appreciation Month, which had a focus on "Going Green". Everybody LOVED their Chico Bags!!! They had sucj a hard time deciding which one to pick with all the many colorful options. Thank you for making Being Green so easy, fun and colorful!
Love my little ChicoBag! My friends make fun of me because I carry such small purses, yet they're big enough to hold two ChicoBags. How convenient! It took me awhile to remember to use them, but I'm in the habit now and I feel good knowing I'm helping the environment every time I use them. Great for quick trips to the drugstore.
I thought it would be hard to stuff the bag back into its carrying case but it fits easily and perfectly! I keep it in my diaper bag just tell the cashier I don't need a bag today. Great purchase and I bought extras to save for last minute birthday gifts.
My latest order variety of bags and two children's water bottles were for use as gifts to friends and family. The Chico blue earth bag, several white cloth lunch bags, white cloth produce bags, and the water bottles were sent to my niece and her family for Valentines along with my note that this was to help them join the movement to save the earth for their children. Today I received a note they had started using the gifts to do just that and sent me a picture of the children too. So sweet! I have given two friends lunch bags and they loved them. I look forward to dispensing joyfully the rest of my order and it truly does make me happy to give such a thoughtful gift to others. For me, I love shopping with the produce bags and I always get comments on my Chico bags and other shopping bags I have from your company. I will return to shop many times I am sure because there are many people who need to be educated by enjoying your great products. Caroline Armstrong
I bought these as a gift and the recipient loves them!
I love these bags. I originally bought them more than 18 months ago. I still have those first ones and have added many more. They are a perfect size to keep with you at all times. I have been using cloth grocery bags for years, but always had to remember to bring them into the store - something I would do for grocery shopping, but would forget at the mall or those quick errands. Now I have enough of these, that there are always some in the car and in my purse, so I'm covered for those quick dash-ins. I have also bought many of these as gifts and they are a great way to get someone started on using reusable bags. I also love the fun colors they come in.
A good size sturdy bag that fits in such a small pocket...it is great for running errands. I also particularly like the little carabiner that is attached because it makes it easy to take with me if I am walking to the store. Overall, a very good product.
I love the small, tidy, reusable bags. This is a good one - though my favorite is the Acme Workhorse (it's smaller and fits better in my bag) - and I adore the colors, the outside clip, and that they are so sturdy. I'm on a mission to save the world (and whales, seals, fish, etc) from plastic bags - these are a great alternative!!
I absolutely LOVE these bags!!! They are so tiny, come in awesome colors, and work very well for grocery shopping. I went yesterday and used all 5! I get compliments on them all the time! I think that I'll be purchasing more very soon!
Great bags! Sturdy and colorful.
This bag is great! Not only is it so cute, but it is so small! I love the fact you can carry a good amount in the bag without it breaking. I plan on buying more!
I love the Chico Bags. They are small and fit into anything you are carrying, but can hold so much. My favorite feature is that they clip to your key chain or wallet. So any quick trip to the store and you don't have to worry about whether you forgot your bag or not. It's already with you. They are very strong, and can be loaded fuller than a regular plastic grocery bag without worry. Highly, highly recommended.
Love the bags. Very handy. Make great gifts. I have been impressed with the quality of construction and find it easy to carry more than I thought I would be able to.
I love these. I bought a bunch several years ago and ended up giving away all but one as gifts. I load those bags up with cans and bottles. These new bags appear to be as sturdy as the ones I bought years ago and I expect them to last just as long. They're so compact I keep one in my purse all the time. Sometimes when I go into a store to pick up just one item, I pick up another and another. I whip out my Chico Bag rather than having to go back to the front of the store for a basket or buggy.
I am delighted with the Reusable Shopping Bags. A friend received one for Christmas from her sister. I got the information and sent for 15 immediately! I have given 5 away so far and each recipient has been so excited! These will be included with my gifts for birthdays and anniversaries this year! I am ordering more today! Thanks so much!
Easy to use, easy to fold into that great little pouch, and good price. I'm very happy with this!
The ChicoBag is wonderful. They open quickly and you can store it bag into its attached baggie easily. I love that they fit in my purse. I can have up to four in my purse at one time which makes it easier to shop without having to worry about needing more bags. The ChicoBag is the best. I recommend that everyone stock up on these and say no to plastic and paper!!!!!!
I got several of the earth design bags to use as Christmas gift bags. They were well-received (and hopefully will be well-used). I also own several of these Chico bags and use them frequently, from grocery shopping to the beach. The attached pouch and clip are the best features, I think. Makes it so easy to store the bags where you can easily reach for them.
Chico Bags are a great product. I gave them as a gift and the recipient loved them!
I bought the ChicoBags for a Christmas White Elephant exchange. I put 5 bags inside an opened bag and everybody loved them. It's so convenient to stuff then inside the built-in bag and the snap is very handy, I clip them to my purse so I won't forget to take them with me into the store like I have done with the regular store bags. A great variety of colors too...I love them. Randi
I bought the bags as Christmas gifts for all my friends and family and included some information on how plastic bags kill the environment. Everyone LOVED the bags and thought it was such a cute, smart gift. It's the gift that keeps on giving!
I purchased several ChicoBags as gifts for friends and staff at my school. They were a big hit! One of our goals is to focus on recycling and the bags were an incentive to do so. People were impressed that they would easily fit in a pocket or purse and with the variety of colors. Thank you, ChicoBags!
These bags stuff down very small, which is exactly what I was looking for, and are only $4 a piece, which was great since I used them as Christmas gifts too. If they were just a little bit bigger, I could get rid of my bulky canvas bags and use them exclusively, but they're not quite big enough to pack tons of groceries in. You need about 6 or 7 for a full week's worth of shopping. But for small shops and errands, they're perfect
It is great..................................................
Love this bag! I have two, and I purchased many more for stocking stuffers for my family this Christmas. They were a huge hit. These bags are inexpensive and well constructed. I love that there isn't a separate storage bag to keep track of, and they are small enough for me to carry in my purse every day. And, I really like that there are many bright colors to choose from. I have had one of my ChicoBags for over a year now, and I use it many times a week, sometimes to carry heavy loads of groceries. It has held up very well, with no visible signs of wear.
I really like that the pouch the bags fit in is attached to the bag. This will prevent me from losing it! Colors are good. The green is a little darker (close to army green) that I would have liked. But, overall, the bags were a big hit at Christmas.
Wow - love the 2 compact reusable shopping bags I ordered and you even provided an additional one on you along with a sticker. Thank you! So handy to have these compact bags always with you and readily available as we work toward a plastic bag free world! No more excuses that we forgot our reusable bags.
These are the greatest bags. Strong, pretty, compact, and practical. Why doesn't everyone have at least one in every purse or pocket ???
Love, love, love this bag!!! So much so that I gave one to all my family and friends this christmas & they loved them too. They are very well made - strong & roomy.
The Chico bags were a big hit - I used them instead of wrapping paper for Christmas gifts. And of course kept a few for myself - compact so I can always have one with me, strong and roomy enough to carry groceries, library books, etc. Great product!
My sister and I having been trying to do little things to 'go green' and I happened to draw her name in our secret Santa this year. I heard a customer of mine mention reuseablebags.com so I checked it out. I ordered her a Chico Bag and she loved it!! I was torn about ordering myself one, but decided to wait. I was so excited when it was delivered and I had been given a free bag too! We use them all the time. I can't wait to purchase more products from this site! Thanks a lot!
I had to buy a gift under 5 dollars for a christmas party at work. I really wanted to buy reusable grocery or shopping bags. Everywhere I went had bags under five dollars, but they also had the name of the store printed somewhere on the bag. I wanted bags that could be taken anywhere. These where perfect. I kept one for myself to see if I would like it and I love it. It fits a lot and I can carry it in my purse when I go into a store, or my daughter will carry it. I am going to buy more, they are great!
I ordered many for gifts for co-workers. The size of the bag is great and I love the range of colors. Small compact size makes them easy to always have on hand.
I recieved my order in two shipments due to backorder. I ordered 10 chico bags for xmas gifts. I already had one myself, that i had recieved as a gift last year. I love the bags they are awesome and everyone really like the gift. I also really appreciated the free bag and sticker with the order! I gave them as gifts too and it worked out awesome! Thank you and I am very pleased with my business with you guys!
The Chico bags were mostly for additions to Christmas gifts for my friends who are "concerned about the environment". Of course I kept one. The color selection and fashion appeal are fantastic. The durability excellent. They are convenient -easy to carry and easy to use.Since they are heavy duty, you don't have to worry about the bag breaking. Adding a keychain to attach the bag was an act of genius. Thank you! Everyone was amazed and excited when they opened their gifts. I actually have two because of my order I received one for free. I keep that one in glove compartment of my car. I have become a "enviroment guru"! I truly love the Chico bag!!!!!!!
I gave these bags for Christmas presents to two very different people (one a 30 year old earthy Californian woman, one a 76 year old Southern man). Both of them have raved about the bags -fun, compact, useful for groceries, library books, flowers, anything. As a gift-giver, they were great because they were an economical gift and I could give lots of them. I'd definitely purchase these again.
I ordered 5 Chico bags to give as gifts and to keep one for myself. LOVE the colors, and key-ring attachment. Several recipients expressed their thrill in receiving. But I also got a complementary Acme Bag and that I LOVE even more -- a little more compact. When I go into a store I clip it onto my keyring. Merchants and others in line take notice of how large the bag is and how compact and convenient it is to carry. I plan to spread the joy of compact, portable reusable bags to even more people next holiday season. Thank you!!
These are terrific products, easy to carry & to use.
I use my ChicoBags often. They hold purchases better than flimsy plastic and look great. When I pull the ChicoBag out, it gets the attention of the sales clerk and anyone around. People are impressed with the compact size, ease of use and the durable construction. I know several of my friends will be using them. ChicoBag is a great product!
I LOVE these bags! I purchased several as a gift and several for myself. They are small enough to keep in my handbag and always available. When I go to the supermarket I just hook all my bags together so I can eliminate plastic bags from my order. GREAT ITEM AT A GREAT PRICE!
I purchased these bags at least a year ago and have been using them for all my shopping since. I'm sure that's hundreds of plastic bags that my family hasn't brought home from the grocery store as a result. I love how these bags will hook onto the bagging carousel, it really helps win over the cashiers who seem to hate reusable bags. They also hold so much more then a plastic bag because there is no fear of the bag tearing. I've received numerous compliments and convinced some people to give reusable bags a try.
The Chico bags are great. I used them as gift bags for Christmas presents for a group of friends. They are colorful and hold a lot of goodies. I gave my friends a demo on how to open and repack them and made them promise they would carry the bags in their purses for shopping. That's fewer plastic bags to blow around and get caught in the trees.
We love the bags. We are a school and every teacher and staff member and parent is now using a reusable bag with our school logo on it. We are located in the Virgin Islands where very little recycling takes place -- but now we are doing a lot to reduce the use of plastic bags.
This is a great bag. It folds so easily and so small it fits in all of my every day purses. It is perfect for pulling out at the checkout when it is a small amount of anything I am buying. I don't usually think about bring a bag into the drug store, but the Chico bag is always on me and handy. My son even used one to throw a few things together to spend the night at a friends. It is amazing how much it holds. The bright colors make them easy to find.
I love the ChicoBag- it's small and compact, but holds a ton of groceries! Thanks!
I LOVE THESE BAGS!!!! I just got them this weekend and they are fantastic! They fit into this tiny sack that is attached and closes w/ a drawstring and comes with a small carabiner clip so that you can clip them to your purse, keys, belt loop or to each other if you want to keep them together so that they dont disappear in your bag or some place else. I love the handles. They dont dig into your hands and they are big enough to fit on your shoulder w/o a coat in the summer. (A skinny person might be able to put it on their shoulder with a coat on.) I also love that you can stuff it into its sack w/o having to worry about how to fold it and it fits in the palm of your hand or pocket. I got one of these in black to try out and their Chico Vita bag in blue from another site that is a shoulder bag. The Chico bag holds 25lbs and the Vita holds 40lbs. I took these two and my ACME bag that I also bought to sample in my small purse to the supermarket and the three of them took up no space at all in my bag. I made sure to open them before reaching the register so as not to slow up the line and handed them over to the bagger as I emptied my cart and told him to use these instead of the plastic bags. Well he enjoyed filling the Chicobag to capacity and even the cashier got a little nervous as he tried to stuff one more thing in there. She told him to put the butter in the other bag but he knew he could squeeze it in there and the bag held up perfectly fine as expected. He actually put the gallon of water in the large Vita bag which I was a little worried if I could carry it on my shoulder but it worked out well and I found it very comfortable. Out of the three bags I only need two of them for what would have taken four bags, yet the bags did not feel heavy and I felt comfortable walking up five flights of stairs knowing that my hands were not full. I have ordered more of these chicobags to give out as stocking stuffers for christmas. I want to give one to everyone they are so great!
This is a fantastic bag ... nice size, easy storage within itself. The only thing that would make this better is if it was made in the USA.
These shopping bags are great. I bought four and keep two in my car and two in my purse. They don't weigh anything at all. I take them into stores with me and it takes only a few seconds to open and use them. They fold up easily into themselves and are durable. I had some other bags before that were not easy to fold up and these are much better than those. I recommend these to anyone wanting to reduce those plastic bags.
I bought one of these at a going green festival and came home and went shopping for the best price to buy in bulk I bought them for christmas gifts this year I love the colors and it is so nice to have it attached to my purse for when I leave my bags in the car or end up with more than the one thing I went into the store with. Great look great price.
These are great! I bought several for holiday gifts. They are small enough to fit in my handbag - to be available at all times. Great colors - great buy !!
These are truly wonderful. I carry one with me all the time for stores like the pharmacy. The bags take up very little room in my purse and once opened are sturdy, large and easy to use. I plan on attaching one of these to many of the gifts I give this holiday.
I love these bags! While they are small they hold a lot.
I bought a bunch of these to give family members for Christmas. They are so compact that they can fit in a purse or clip on your pocket so that you never forget to bring them to the store.
We LOVE these bags! I actually am using this batch to wrap holiday gifts in. I think the green and red will look great under the tree- and then the new owner will have a great new bag!
I bought 5 of these bags and I use them whenever I go grocery shopping. They're great! They fold up so they fit in my purse, and they look really pretty! I usually get a discount for using them at stores, too. :) Fantastic! Everyone should have them!
These bags are GREAT and fold up nicely to fit in my purse. I use the clip to attach it to my purse and I always have a reusable shopping bag handy.
This is actually my second order of Chico Bags - my toddler was playing with my other ones and lost them in Target. I was so sad because I love them so much. I purchased some for my brother this time too. He used mine while he was visiting and came to really like them. They aren't too "girlie" he said, and he likes how small they fold up. I ordered the moss green the first time, and the blue this time. I think the blue is a nice color - I like it a lot so far. I just wish everyone knew about these. I cringe every time I am at a store and someone uses a plastic bag. I am spreading the word as best I can!
Its great! I keep one in my purse at all times so I never have to use a plastic bag again!
light and convenient, easy to store several wherever you need them-- takes up much less space then the bulky canvas bags I bring into the store.
This bag is awesome! Compact, super strong and eco-friendly. I would highly recommend this bag!
I LOVE my Chico Bags. I use them for shopping of course, but they are convenient to have in the car to carry library books too. I bought 5 a few months ago and now I only have 3. I think my friend took 2 of them. I am ordering 5 more to replace the missing ones and to give as gifts so people won't take them!
I adore Chico Bags. The quality, size and price make them the perfect choice to be environmentally responsible. Thanks for making such a great product available at a wonderful cost!
The ChicoBags are perfect to stash in my bag and car to have readily available for shopping. They are resonably priced.
Ordered 9 ChicoBag Reusable Shopping bags for gifts & stocking stuffers. Want to keep all for myself! They are perfect to keep in your purse or car & I have used mine FREQUENTLY. Very very happy with products!
great little bags--that hold a lot! I've also given several out as gifts to my friends as a way to promote the reusable bag movement, and they love them too! definitely a good buy.
A friend gave me one of these a year ago, and I have used it weekly at least. It is inexpensive, well-made, has lived through machine washing and many fully-stuffed trips to the store. It's so light weight that I don't even notice it in my purse, and the integral stuff sack makes it whip in and out in a flash (no special folding or rolling required, and no hunting for the correct bag to put it back into!) I have other reuseable bags, but this one is always the first I whip out at the grocery or drug store, with compliments from the checkout folks often. I just bought a bunch more for me and some for stocking stuffers for friends and family over the holidays. The new ones can easily live in my glovebox, bike basket, and/or purse and not take up space in my car like the canvas ones do. My old canvas ones are going to be retired to Freecycle.
i'm good about remembering my reusable grocery bags, but often forgot when i popped into any other stores... this makes sure i have one ready. a friend gave me one, and i ended up ordering more for everyone in my family.
The bags have been selling very well and customers seem to really enjoy buying them.
I first saw my sister-in-law using one of your bags during a visit to Oregon... she linked me to your website. Once we got back in Pennsylvania, I promptly ordered 10 chico bags. In one week it was amazing the impact these bags had on reducing waste, ultimately helping the environment. Just think what we can do over a month or year! We have 10, 2 for carrying around, the the rest for our weekly grocery run. I have since forwarded by email a link to your site to all my family and friends. Thank you ChicoBag!! PJ in PA
You don't even know the bags are in your purse, they are so small & light. Yet when used, they hold more than a plastic bag because they can carry more heavier items. Instead of coming out of the store with 6 plastic bags, I now come out with 3!
The bags I ordered were for a gift for my daughter. She really likes them! She clips them together on her purse so that she always has them with her. She like that they are lightweight and colorful. I plan to order some for my daughter-in-laws and myself for Christmas. Thank you!
I received my order within a couple of days so my first comment is that shipping is so fast it will make your head spin! These Chico bags are great. I ordered 6 of them and have now used them twice. They are roomy and attractive (especially in hot pink!)and to my surprise hold at least twice what your basic plastic bag holds. They are very easy to return to their self-contained storage sacks. I have 6 ACME Earth Totes which I use for my bi weekly grocery shopping but I carry 4 of the Chico bags in my car and another 2 in my purse and use these for trips to the drugstore and Lowe's and PetSmart . . . I am seriously considering giving these as Christmas gifts this year and I plan to do a blog post about the importance of using reuseable bags and this website.
We have been using our Chico bags for grocery shopping for over a year. We have used other bags in the past. The self contained stuff pouch and hooks are why I choose this bag. It makes them easier to store and carry along. The seems will pull if you over stuff the bag with heavier items (several large milks) but as one of the earlier reviewers stated: rotate the bags. We have not lost any bags to overuse and still have our original bags. The grocery store clerks like that we bring our own bags because we can put so much more into each bag than into the plastic bags and they do not have to be double bagged. One of our best purchases here on Reuseable bags.
Chico bags are hands down my favorite reusable shopping bags. I've tried several types, and while there are others that have nicer prints and hold more (such as the Envirosax or Reisenthel), the Chico bags are the ones that actually get used in my household. They easily squish down into their stuff sacks in just a couple of seconds, so after unloading groceries it's easy to pack them away, link them together and hang them from the door knob so we remember to put them back in the car. All of the other bags I have need to be folded a specific way, or have a separate stuff sack that can get misplaced.
I LOVE these Chicco bags...about 6 months ago I bought 6 and they come in so handy that I had to go back and buy 5 more. I love the new Earth logo on the blue ones, so I ordered those this time. My only complaint is they seem to be tearing a little at the seam when I put heavy items such as milk in them, not a problem though since I just use a different bag for the heavier things! Overall a great bag that I will be giving out as Christmas gifts this year!
Fits perfectly in my purse. Compact, yet roomy when opened. This carries quite a bit, the same size as a grocery store plastic bag.
These bags are a great size- nice and compact so I can easily keep them in my bag or car and always have them handy for an unexpected shopping trip. Plus the nylon lets me pack much more into each bag than I would be able to carry in a plastic bag, or the fabric bags sold at most grocery stores now.
Love, Love,Love them. They are so lightweight & compact but surprisingly hold so very much, safely and securely. I have more of the canvas, net and .99 grocery bags than I can count because I always seem to forget them in my truck. My Chicobags, I have hooked on my purse. What I love is that I have a bag ready for any need or shopping trip and that I know it will be strong enough for any merchandise!
I love them! And their size makes it totally easy to have on hand whenever needed. I have had larger bags in the past and have forgotten them in the trunk, but these even fit in my little purse or clip on the ring for the strap if I know I am going to need one.
They are great to stick in a purse or a backpack. They easily fit back into the little pouch that it comes in, that was my earlier concern
I love the chico bags! They are easy to keep in my purse so I always have them when I shop. I bought several for Christmas stocking gifts this year.
We made a 2nd order of the ChicoBags because they are such a great "give away" item for our bank. The size and colors fit our needs and the pricing our budget. The web site is easy to use and details of products give enough information to make an easy decision.
great bags! great colors! and great vaule! I see chain department stores selling similar items for $12.00!!
I first received one as a birthday gift and love having it accessible in my purse. Many occasions I would forget my bags in the car. I bought about 6 bags to give as gifts. I already gave one to my mom and she has had many comments and inquiries just going to one outdoor festival.
I love my chico bags! They're the same size as the plastic, but hold a little more because you know they're not going to bust open like the plastic ones. :) The best part is how small they are when you stuff them back in their bags! I have a few of the regular store-brand shopping bags, but those don't fold up in any sort of small way, so I was always forgetting them. These little things I just keep in my purse and diaper bag and I'm always good to go! Thanks for the option! :)
This is the best company to order from. My order arrived quickly, packaged perfectly and was better than described. This is my second order from reusable bags and I am very satisfied. The Chico bag is tough, holds a lot, and actually will go back into its little pouch. I will order from them again.
I bought the Chico Bags to give to all the women in my family at Christmas. A friend had given me one about a year ago and that started my on the quest to use reusable bags when shopping. I love the little Chico Bag it dosen't take up much room in my purse. I carry it always and it gets used alot. I took it on vacation and the clerks at the gift shop at Mesa Verde wanted them. I was at a local store this week that specializes in going Green. I showed it to them and they called to see about ordering them for their store with their logo on them while I was there. So I guess you can say I love the bags and all my women/kin will be thrilled at Christmas; they have all envied mine.
Hi. I recently purchased 4 of these. They arrived securely packaged. I haven't yet used them, because I haven't been shopping yet. But I've shown them to people and people are surprised that they're such large bags and they're smooshed so small. My mum thinks they're cute and was surprised that "even she" was able to restuff the bag into it's stuff sack. I really like them. The fact that I snagged them on sale was a bonus. Thank you Reusable Bags!
This is the second set of chico bags I have purchased. I love the way they hold as much as they do. They are so easy to carry in my purse or hook onto the purse strap. I have had many positive comments about them. I now have 8 bags, plenty for shopping for a large family! Thank you!
Love these bags, bought 6 of them on sale to had out to friends to use!
I recently purchased the chico-bags and wrap-n-mat, both products are great. The bags fit into their own pouch so are very easy to carry in my purse so I am never caught with-out my own bag. The wrap keeps food very fresh, I recently wrapped banana bread in one went on a 16 mile hike in 100 degree temps and the bread was still fresh after being stuffed in my back-pack
The Chico Bags are my new favorite discovery. I saw them at the Natural Products Fair in Anaheim last spring and have bought many of them. I always have one attached to my purse and have been able to avoid plastic bags almost 100% of the time. I keep giving them away as people admire them (that's why I have to keep buying them). They are light weight, very handy, and easy to carry. The rest of my reusable bags seem to always be in the trunk of my car. Thanks. Martha
I love the Chico bags! I'm always complimented on it when I pull it out of my purse when I'm shopping. Since I try to give eco-friendly gifts, adding a Chico bag always brings a smile. Washable and will last a very long time. Best bag ever!
I love the Chico bags. I have several. They are very strong and hold a lot more than you would think. I love the cheerful colors. They fit in your purse or clipped to your belt loop for shopping, then open them up and stuff them with products. Fantastic.
They are a little smaller than other bags but the attached pouch and clip make them the most convenient reuseable bags I own. The price can't be beat, especially if you buy 5 for about $20. I gave some to our summer interns at work before they returned to college and they were very pleased.
All your bags should be this good! Stuffs to almost nothing, holds 20+ lbs. of groceries, bulky boxes and bottles included - what's not to like?
I love them. Very compact and holds quite a bit of merchandise. No improvement needed as far as I'm concerned. Joanne Gras
I love these bags. They are so strong and don't rip with sharp edged products. Since there are such beautiful colors to choose from, it has been easy to convince my teenage daughters to carry them. Ten bags will hold my entire $200.00 grocery order (I don't bag large items or milk jugs). I will be I cluding these bags with Christmas gifts for teachers, friends, etc. Beautiful way to go green.
Small, strong, colorful, and reasonably priced. I've tried a few different brands and found these to be THE BEST. Their small size makes them easy to carry with you, and I love that I can't lose the storage pouch. They hold much more than plastic bags (grocery store proven) and it's not an origami project to put them away! Dirty bags? Just throw them in the wash and hang them dry. I've been giving them to my friends and family, and now even the non-green are calling to tell me how much they like them.
These bags are strong, just large enough, easy to get back into each little bag, colorful, practical, environmentally friendly, fair priced! We love them!!!!!!! When I say strong, I mean strong enough to carry a watermelon.
Love these-- they stuff into a small pouch so I can keep one or two with me at all times.
This is the most useful totebag I have-- and I have many. It is so lightweight, I clip it on my purse, so it is very handy. The cashiers are always surprised to see how big the bag actually is when I open it up.
I bought these for my kids' camp counselors as their camp went "green" starting this summer. These made great gifts but I may have to buy some for myself (I have other products from you guys that I love!). :) They are so compact! And I love the clip feature - very handy.
I really like the Chico stuff bags. Bravo for the attached hook. It goes right onto a ring in my purse. I love pulling it out in the store. I wish there were some material that didn't wrinkle so terrible, but I do want it strong enough to be usable. I bought a bunch to give out to friends with the promise that they would use them. Several friends love theirs and have bought them to give away to their friends. Maybe we will actually kick the plastic bag habit. . . . Janie
These bags have been a life changing purchase. I almost always remember take my canvas bags to the grocery store, but if I am shopping anywhere else, I rarely have a bag on me. The Chico bag is the perfect solution! Now, where ever I am, I always have a bag.
i carry my bag every where as its so compact,its a good job i bought 5 as my daughter also loves them and forever borrowing them
I have used this bag far more than any other reusable bag simply because I always have it attached to my purse. It is so convenient and I never forget it in my trunk! When I go grocery shopping I use it as a last resort on my big trips simply because my other more conventional bags are more sturdy. This is great for the smaller trips and retail stores for small items.
First off, I love the color of these bags. I know that's a little thing, but to me, it's important. Reusable bags available from other sources are very showy and bright, and that's just not my thing. I got brown and love it :) Second, these bags hold more than I'd expected. They look smaller than a Target plastic bag, but I have found they hold just as much if not more items with no worry of breaking or dumping over. Third, the storage of these bags is excellent. I have a few other reusable bags of this type - one wraps up and has a snap holding it together, and one has a zipper. But neither of those have a mode for carrying/attaching the bag to anything else. I have one of these hanging on the back of my doorknob, a few hanging from a clip in the car, and those I can easily grab and clip to my purse. I consider these bags to be a good value. It's hard to compare them to the FREE plastic bags you get at the store, but when you consider the waste! and the fact that these will be around forever because we WANT them to be ... They're an economical choice compared to other reusable bags. And finally - I don't consider myself particularly environmentally conscious or anti-consumption. I just like how tidy and convenient these bags are!
I'm very happy with these bags. They are so compact and easy to keep in the pocket on the seat of my car for whenever I have to pop into the store. I gave a few to my brother's girlfriend, and she was impressed with how roomy they are, and how easily they fold up into their pouches. Great purchases like this make doing your part to go green seem more like fun than sacrifice!
I got a few of these bags as stocking stuffers and use them all the time. For my wedding I was making giftbaskets for the out of town guests & decided to use the Chico bags instead of baskets. I really like how compact these bags are, they fit in my purse or cupholder in the car. The drawstring is nice, I hang them from the door handle to remember to bring them with me. Only suggestion would be to make them a little bit stretchier. After a good bit of use they seem to be wearing at the seams. Overall I really like them!
Great bags. They are so light weight and compact but open up to be slightly bigger than a plastic grocery bag. I keep one in my purse because it is small enough to go un-noticed. I also like that my grocery store gives a discount for every reusable bag that I use (or every plastic/paper bag that I don't use).
I love my ChicoBags! I've got them in green and when folded, they look like short cucumbers. When unfolded, the 5 of them hold my entire weekly grocery purchase (and the baggers in the store do not even try to fill them full).
I love this Bag! I keep it attached to my messanger bag,(via the enclosed caribeaner clip) I hardly know its there. The Bag is easy to unfold and fold and seems fairly strong for its size. I drive a scooter, so its hard for me to carry the regular size bags everywhere. its also alot easier to use at Places like Home depot, or other stores that are not grochry stores, where i often have forgotten my bag in the past, or it might not be as publically accepted. (not very manly to bring a bag to home depot...the employees look at me like you brought your won bag???) People have asked me what is that and where did you get it on more than one occasion. I am considering getting another one in the near future. Thanks
These Chico bags are wonderful. They're very similar in size and shape to the plastic bags most grocery stores use...this is helpful for the baggers. I'm amazed at how small they roll up! I keep them in my purse so I don't forget them. The attached pouch for the bags to be scrunched into is so handy, I would lose the pouches if they weren't attached.
LOVE the Chico bags. I just got my order of Chico's, Envirosacs, Acme tote, and Reisenthal mini maxi. The Enviro's are cutest, but the Chico's are the best value. I have decided to order a bunch of brightly colored ones to use as gift bags, this saves wrapping paper waste and encourages "BYOB" at the market. They're also less expensive than paper gift bags! I am raving to all my friends about reusablebags.com!
I can't find enough good words about your bags, and I haven't stopped finding uses either!! Cashiers are impressed often. I love the attached storage bag and can fit 2-3 in my purse.
I love, love, LOVE the Chico bags!! I first discovered them on a recent trip to Kuai, Hawaii. The resort where we stayed had a complimentary bag in the fruit basket in our room. When I got back to Idaho, I had to have more! One bag was not enough. Now I have six! They are so stong and hold so much, I will never go back to plastic or paper. The thing I love the most about the Chico bags is that they fit into your purse when you're not using them. That way you never forget to bring them with you. You already have them! So many people have asked me about them when they see me filling them up at the store. I'm sure that in the future you will have lots of new customers!
Great product - everyone should carry them with them all the time which is totally doable since they pack into themselves!
I love this bag. I bought one for each of my daughters and my granddaughter, and one for my husband's glove compartment also. It's small enough to "live" in my purse so it's always handy and is easy to open as well as to compress back into that small pouch.
This is my second order of Chico bags! I've started slipping them into my friends' & family's birthday gifts. The attached pouch makes all the difference in remembering to bring them shopping. I can fit several in my purse. I've already had several "converts" among my friends & family! We love contributing to the environment in such a simple, inexpensive way.
I really like these bags. Plain and simple but do just what they're supposed to do (at about the size of a grocery store bag). The compact size fits into my purse, glove compartment, etc. The size is about the same as a plastic grocery store bag. I like the Chico bags better than the Acme bags because they go back into their "storage" bag more easily than the Acme bags.
Couldn't love these bags more. Everywhere I shop, people ask me where I got my bags. The bags pack down into tiny pouches, hold a surprising amount of groceries, and look good too. I used to forget my reusable bags in the car all the time -- but now that I always have 4 ChicoBags in my purse, I haven't used a single paper bag.
Bought my Chico Bag at the LA County Fair; loved it so much that I ordered from bags from you to give as presents to parent volunteers in my classroom. I never forget my Chico bag because it's attached to my purse!
What a cool idea -- a bag within a bag! I was shocked to learn that the large bag really did fit into that little bag inside the large one -- and there is never a need to search for the little bag to put the large one in because they come as one item! How cool is that! Easily fits in my purse, taking up virtually no space!
I love this bag...its small enough tucked away that I can leave it in my purse all the time, and ready to use when needed. The fabric is very tough, and I can stuff these very full without worry! Love it!
I love my reusable Chico bag and so I bought 5 more as thank you gifts for friends. It hangs on my purse and goes everywhere with me, which means I always have a bag at the ready. Ruth H.
Loved these bags! Very handy, light & I find myself using them all the time!
Love the Chico bags, as has everyone who sees them. I am ordering a bunch more to give as gifts to co-workers and friends.
I love love love these bags! They are compact, handy and hold a ton of stuff and very durable. I have even used them when department store shopping. The are very practical!
Love it! Attractive, lightweight, sturdy, holds a lot.
the Chico bags were really great. We took them to the grocery store and garage sale shopping. They are holding up well organizing clutter in my office, too. I would definitely order more of these in the future, suggest them to friends and buy them as gifts.
I absolutely love this bag. I can hook them on my purse and use them for everything, even huge industrial cans at the grocery store. They hold an amazing amount of stuff and wash out in a flash. When I get through using one, I simply put it back in its own little holder and hook it back to my purse. I keep several in my car.
These bags are GREAT! I get comments from people everywhere I go with them! I always have one clipped on my purse, plus several in my car trunk, and even in my husband's truck! I never leave home without them!
I bought 5 of these and I'm in love! These are really fantastic! They're just like the normal plastic bags from a grocery store - same size, same shape - so the baggers know what to do with it (they don't overfill them - which is a problem I'm having with my bigger reusable bags as well as my paper-bag-shaped reusable bags). These are strong and durable! The color selection is phenomenal! I chose brown with the blue, and it looks really nice. :-) And the price is great too!!! When I bought these, I thought I would like the fact that it folds into it's own attached bag... but actually I find that cumbersome when I'm at the store, trying to pull each one out of its bag. So, instead, I just bunch them all up and throw them into one bag - so I can just hand it to the bagger. I suppose the feature would be convenient if you just wanted to tuck it away in the purse, diaper bag, or glove compartment for occasional spontaneous use... but I use mine at least once a week for groceries, and I just find that a pain to pack it into itself and then later undo it. I much prefer the roll&snap feature of the Envirosax; in fact sometimes I try to roll these up and finagel the drawstring around it to keep it rolled up, just like my Envirosax.
I absolutely love my chico bags, and I'm working hard at trying to get used to taking them into the grocery store with me. My first order was for five red bags...very chic. My second order was for four Earth and one free Gorgeously Green bag (I have the book). The Earth bags arrived, but the GG bag did not and with no explanation on the invoice either. So it would be nice to know why I didn't receive it (maybe you are out of them), and one of my red bags had a slit in it after the first use. It is still usable, but I'm at a loss as to how it happened. Other than that, I am very happy with the product. The bags hold a lot and are too cool. Since your name is reuseablebags, maybe you could start carrying recycled trash bags of different sizes (I would buy them from you).
First of all...Love them! They are great! I always receive positive comments on them.
I ordered five Chico Bags to split with a friend and so far we both love them! I didn't realize how compact they would be when folded down, they fit in the palm of your hand! They are so small, that I can put all three of mine on my keyring, if need be. Yet, expanded, they are the size of a traditional plastic grocery bag. I have recommended them to everyone I know, and will probably be back to purchase more as holiday gifts later. I received them in a timely fashion too. No complaints here. Thank you!
I specifically bought these bags to help the environment by reducing the number of plastic bags I receive on shopping trips. These bags are definitely worth the investment. They are compact (I can easily fit two or three into my purse), reasonably priced and durable.
Great bags. Convenient to carry clipped onto your purse so they are always available. Holds a suprising amount. I think everyone on my Christmas list is going to get one this coming year.
I love the ChicoBags!!! I bought 10, which is PEPRFECT for by bi-weekly grocery shopping trip, as long as you instruct the grocer to fill the bags properly. They are great because the fold so small, not like the big canvas ones everyone is using. I usually store them in the little pocket behind the front seats of my car, then I always have them. I have the blue ChicoBag that reads "We are One" with a picture of the earth. It's eye appealing and a great conversation starter. I have people asking me all the time where I bought bags. I LOVE MY CHICOBAGS!!!
The bags are great! I like how compact they are, and being able to carry one in my purse is very handy.
I have used these bags multiple times since ordering & they are great. They hold more than I thought they would, and they compact to fit easily in a pocket or my purse, so I usually have one with me.
I like the ChicoBags I have purchased. They have held up well through many uses, and their compact stuff bags make them easy to carry in my purse or leave in the car's console.
Love them!! I have gotten many questions about 'em and i get to share the awesome joy of eliminating plastic bags from my life. They fit great into a purse so they're always with me.
Ordered these for me and a friend - we both LOVE them! They're a little wrinkled when you open them, but the convenience and the fact that we're helping to eliminate plastic bags makes it all worthwhile. We're proud of our Chico bags and intend on ordering more for holiday gift-giving.
Great! They were given away as prizes at a "waste reduction" workshop and everyone loved them - very compact and user-friendly.
I have received nothing but compliments on these bags and have had several people ask me where I got them. I would suggest adding the website address to the bag somehow. I really like them and have used them in a variety of stores such as grocery (didn't blink an eye), Walmart (didn't really know what to do and no discount); the dollar store, bulk discount stores such as costco... etc. So all in all i would strongly recommend.
I got one of the chicobags for Christmas as a stocking stuffer and just loved it! So I bought a bunch of them to give to friends just because they thought they were so strange - and now they love them too. It would be nice if they were a little bigger or had a flat bottom - but I love them anyway! Jut clip it to your keyring and it's always there.
I purchased 5 purple ultra compact bags and absolutely LOVE them!! I have them all hooked together and keep them in the console of my car so they're always ready for me to grab and clip to my purse handle. My local grocer offers a small discount for customers who bring their own bags which is an extra incentiver for me to use them every time I shop! I'm very pleased with the construction, appearance and value and have recommended them to all my friends. Thanks!
At our library, we are giving these bags out as optional prizes for completing summer reading goals. We have an emphasis this year on "green" products and activities. Many kids are attracted to both the products and the idea of helping protect the environment. The colorful, small bags are appealing to this crowd of mostly grade-school children.
This is a really nice bag! I love the color selection. They're very sturdy & strong, as well as comfortable to hold. I also like that it's a familiar look/feel for the bagger at the grocery store (it is so similar to the plastic bag that they're used to), so my groceries get packed up well. (When I go for paper, or for reusable bags that resemble paper bag shapes, the baggers always fill them up - my produce gets put with the glass jars and cracker boxes, and everything gets smushed.) While I think the pocket with the drawstring and the carabeener are a neat touch (especially for the price!), they are not features that I'll be using. When grocery shopping, I find it too much of a pain to pull out my 5-10 reusable bags and have to undo all the drawstrings and pull out all of the bags from their pockets. Yes, it's super convenient for keeping one in the purse, or the glove compartment... but not so much when I've got 2 kids trailing me and I'm trying to get done with the grocery store. Overall, this is a fantastic bag, and I really do love it! It's a tad smaller than the Envirosax, but just as sturdy. The bag packs a lot of features, and is a great price!
I love the ChicoBag! I bought several to hand out to my friends and family, all of whom were thrilled as well. The wide handles are very comfortable in your hand or draped over your arm, even when the bag is full and heavy. Its compact size makes it very handy to always have for unplanned shopping.
I LOVE MY PINK CHICOBAGS. I USE THEM EVERYTIME I GO SHOPPING, SO EASY TO CARRY AROUND!.. I really have nothing bad to say about this product!
I love my ChicoBags. I ordered 30 for party favors at a recent bridal shower. My guests love the bags and I feel good about helping end the use of plastic bags!
Affordable, good-sized bags in fun colors. I love the attached stuff bag, it makes them nice and compact when not in use. I can easily keep them in my purse without taking up valuable space.
I liked my bags so much that I bought one for each of my coworkers and they like them so much they are also buying them for their family members. They are sturdy, easy to use and they hold a lot of stuff!
These bags are the staple of my reusable bag collection. The baggers at my grocery store are always shocked at how much they hold.My husband even carries these because they are so compact & convenient.They are light weight yet durable.Definately recommend these.
I always meant to bring in my shopping bags when I shopped, but the problem was I just kept forgetting them! I would get to the check out counter and not have them but with these little bags I'm always prepared. They fit perfectly in my purse. No "paper or plastic" for me any more. It feels good to know that something so simple can make a real difference in our environment. These bags are the best
great bag! comes in great colors! i love how it folds up into its own bag! very very convient. infact i will be buying at least 11 of them in Oct or Nov 2008 for my bunko group xmas gift!
I love this bag! Whoever thought of putting the little clip on it was a genius. Now when I walk to the grocery store or go to a flea market, I don't have to carry anything, and when I come back with the bag full, I can sling it over my shoulder. We're giving the bag away to faculty members at my college who are taking a technology workshop--not only will it give them a place to put all their equipment, but then they can take it back home with them and use it for toting stuff--no plastic necessary!
I bought Chico bags for myself, my boyfriend, my mom, my stepmom and my dad. Everyone loved them and I feel great that I am helping my family to become even more environmentally friendly.
I love the chico bags I bought. I live in the city, so I rarely get in my car to run errands. I keep my Chico bags in my purse and use them almost on a daily basis. They are convenient to have, either to conserve plastic bag use, or to carry around for those unexpected times you'll need a bag (like going to the library). They are sturdy and carry alot. I'd say 2 bags holds the equivalent of about 5-6 plastic bags.
love, love love my chico bags! my sister in law purchased first and i went home right away to order. now i have been showing them off to coworkers so hopefully more orders are coming in. your website is a great resource!
The bags are AMAZING!!! I was shocked at how much one bag can hold!!!THANK YOU!!!! I really think that everyone should be utilizing these bags bec ause it lowers the use of plastic bags and because you carry less bags.
The bags were a bit smaller than I had anticipated but they certainly hold more than a plastic grocery bag. All in all they are fantastic but not the greatest for bulky/heavy items.
I purchased five reuseable bags. I gave one to my Mom , husband , sister and I have two. I keep one clipped to my briefcase at work. So when Im done work and I need to go shopping the Chico bag is within site so I remember to use it. I just love that it's so compact.
I absolutely LOVE my Chico bags! They hold a lot more than those flimsy plastic bags and they are very well made. The pouch feature is really convenient when shopping at the mall since all I have to do is put it in my purse and go! I would highly recommend these bags to anyone.
We love ChicoBag! I bought some for myself from another web site, and I loved them so much I gave my sister a set for her birthday. She loves them just as much! They're just like plastic grocery bags except they don't stretch and break when you overfill them. When we broke open a container of juice inside one of them, I just threw them in the washing machine. My husband uses them to carry computer stuff back and forth from the office, too.
Excellent. I got the bags a week ago and I have used them almost everyday. I leave them in my car to use anytime. I ordered five bags. They are very strong and large enough to bring home groceries for our family of 6.
I love these bags and suggested we give them as Christmas gifts at my work, the administration thought it was a fantastic idea! They are durable, compact and I use mine all the time. My trips to the plastic bag recycling bin has totally been reduced.
These reusable bags are the best idea. They will not tear like the plastic bags. I can wash them out if I carry meats and then use them again. I feel better about shopping with them. The Downside - they are so colorful and great looking that the cashiers tend to look at them and ask about them. I feel it takes longer to bag and go. Converting one cashier at a time to going Green! Erin
My ChicoBags are perfect for me. I had purchased some reusable bags from my grocery store, which were large with handles and folded flat. But every time I went grocery shopping I forgot to carry them into the store with me. Needless to say this was frustrating. I bought 5 ChicoBags and keep them in my purse and now I always have them when I need them. I love that they are roomy, sturdy, AND machine washable (the other bags were not), and still can fit easily in my purse. Thanks reusablebags.com!
I ordered two of the resusable shopping bags and love them! I have been searching for this type of bag since I lived in Germany years ago. I carry it on my key chain and use it all the time! No more plastic bags for me! Love the colors! I'll be getting these for everyone on my Christmas list this year and filling them with a nice loaf of bread or cookies!!
These bags are great! They hold a lot, and the compact size allows me to easily carry 2 or 3 in my purse for bigger trips to the store. I even converted my husband to using them instead of getting plastic.
love the bags, they fold down small, so i never forget to bring them, they are always in my purse.
The chico bags have a nice variety of colors to choose from and i like how small they fold down, but for my shopping needs they're too small and not having the flat bottom makes it hard to keep up with the cashier when trying to bag your own groceries. I do use them for taking things to work and quick errands, but not for my groceries.
I love my Chicobags, they are so convenient and easy to use. The baggers at the grocery store all comment on them. They fill easily, are easy to carry. The material is great. soft not stiff like some bags. I will never use plastic again. Keep up the good work & thank you.
The Chicobag is a great alternative to plastic bags, and the colors make them a nice statement. I like the fact that they come with the carrier pouch attached, but it is a little tough to get the bag out; it would be helpful if it opened a little more.
My wife loves these bags, they are her favorites. She keeps one in her purse at all times. They are a wonderful size and well made.
I love my ChicoBags, they hold a good deal of items and are quite sturdy despite their thin appearance. I have one attached to my work bag at all times and the others are in my car trunk for planned shopping trips.
Have only used chico bags for about a month, but they are very sturdy, hold a great deal, and easy to fold back into the pouch. I even get a 5cent credit per bag at one store!
These bags are fabulous! I keep 2 in my purse for those unexpected stops by the store. I use them at department stores, Walmart, the pharmacy - everywhere. They are good conversation starters for environmental issues.
I love the Chico bags- I bought a bunch for myself and my family. I like the fact that the pouch on the Chico is sewn inside the sides of the other bag. It makes it a whole lot easier than another reusable bag I have which has a seperate pouch. Great product!
This is a great bag! I purchased two, one for myself and one for my mom. Although we have other reusable bags, I never remember to bring them with me into the store, especially when I'm just running in for a few things after work. This way, my chico bag is stowed in my purse at all times, and I always have it. I also get lots of complements on it when I pull it out at the checkout counter at my local grocery store.
They are great. I tell everyone when I go shopping about Reusable Bags by Chico and give them your website address.
I just love these Chico Bags! They are pretty, sturdy, easily stored and inexpensive! Everywhere I go with them (grocery store, department store and even the auto store) I am asked "where did you get that cool bag?"...I say "why resusablebags.com!"
I love these bags! They are extremely strong, hold a ton of stuff, and they are super convenient. I keep several in the glove compartment of my car so I always have them handy for spur of the moment trips to the grocery store.
The Chicobag is an amazing product. I heard about this product through the eco-funny podcast, More Hip Than Hippie. I always carry my chicobags in my purse so I always have a reusable bag for those impulse purchases. I bags also wash up really good and dry fast. I definitely recommend it.
These bags are GREAT. It's small enough to keep in my purse, so I never forget to bring it along. Have given away several, and everybody loves them. Strong, sturdy, durable, and holds lots of stuff.
I love the bags i bought, they work great and i use them everywhere i go!!!! I bought 5 and i will buy more. Susi San Diego Ca
I love my Chico Bags! I put a few everywhere so I always have one; in the car, in my purse, gym bag, etc. They come in handy for all types of things and I love that they are different colors. I give them as gifts and people convert quickly! It feels great to always be able to save a bag!
I love my bag on a keychain - actually, I just keep it in my purse, which is very convenient for me since I always stop by the grocery store after work for a few items. It's the perfect size for a purse. I just throw my little bag in my purse once everything is taken out of it. For me, it's the perfect solution for for having something, other than plastic bags, to carry my groceries in. Super cheap too!
Great bags! They're small enough that I have five in my purse so I always have enough, even for bigger shopping trips. I love that they're always with me, that makes it much harder to forget them! The size is a good size too and they're very strong.
These bags are great! I bought six and leave them in my car. I am able to fit a week's grocery shopping (family of four) in them. They are sturdy and easy to fill. The bagger can hang them on the plastic bag dispenser/rack. I usually try to keep one in my purse too for when I run into a store to pick up one or two things. So great not to have all those store plastic bags piling up.
My wife and i really like these bags. We have them in our cars, in our coat pockets and on our bikes. When we go in a store we just grab several and put them in our pockets, they work great.
Since Jan 2008, I've not accepted a single plastic bag from any store--my Chico bag is clipped to my purse and is always at the ready, especially if I forget my other cloth bags. My daughter lives in NYC and takes her Chico bag everywhere. I gave Chico bags to all my kids for Easter and keep a supply for last minute gifts-the price is right too. Thanks, Carol Hallman
I love my Chico bags. They are very strong and durable. The advertisement states that they hold twenty pounds which is correct. I carry one in my purse all of the time. They are so convenient. I highly recommend this product!
I love these bags! They are so small and easy to put in my purse I am able to use them all the time. Many grocery store baggers have commented on how much they hold and how sturdy they are. Good stuff!
I love this bag. It fits well in a purse so I can keep one with me all the time.
I love my Chico Bags! They are sturdy and hold quite a few groceries each. Also very handy to fold one up and toss it in your purse or, in my case diaper bag, and they don't take up much room! Great product, I've recommended them to all my friends!
They are perfecto. I'm sure you are trying to get guys to use them as well which explains the colors and the hook. How about writing some movie star guys or environmental type guys and giving them one to wear plus make statements about. Ellen Liversidge
WOW! This product is great. I toss two of them into my small purse and I am reading for the grocery store or the department store. I highly recommend this product!
The chico bags are the best. So easy to keep with you. Everytime I use them someone at the store comments on them. Great gift.....useful and good for the environment.
The ChicoBags are fabulous -- love the selection of colors and the compact/expandable size is wonderful. I carry them everywhere I go and am an unofficial promoter for the product since I tout them to sales clerks, as well as friends. They make great gifts/stocking stuffers. Love them!
I LOVE MY CHICO BAGS, I ORDERED 5 OF THEM THINKING I WOULD GIVE THEM TO FAMILY/FRIENDS, BUT I HAVE KEPTED THEM FOR MYSELF. I LEAVE THEM IN MY CAR, AND WHENEVER I GO TO THE STORE, I TAKE MY BAGS WITH ME. I LOVE THEM!
These bags have worked wonderfully, We ordered three and have found that what previously took 4 or 5 plastic bags fits easily in the Chico bags as you don't have to worry about the bag tearing. For the price it is hard to justify NOT buying some.
We love our Chico bags. In the past my husband and I always managed to forget to bring a bag with when we went shopping. I now keep a Chico bag hanging from my purse and one from my briefcase. My husband keeps one in the car and other one on the cooler bag. Perfect!
Love the ChicoBag! I am far less likely to forget them in the car since they fit easily in a pocket or a purse -- plus with the little clip you can always find some place to attach them so they are right there when you need one!
Awesome!!! We gave these bags out at a staff retreat. I am using them for stocking stuffers and small gifts this year for Christmas. They are so easy to use.
I first saw this product on my local TV station and looked for it locally but couldn't find it. You had the colors that other online store were out of. My Chicobag is FABULOUS. It clips right on my wallet so I am never without a bag. I bought one just to check it out and I loved it. So I will be buying more and giving them away as gift bags.
These are the best re-usable bags I have found. I've found regular totes to be too large and hard to remember. These bags fit in my purse, glove box and on the key hooks where keys are kept when folded into their compact baggies. They are well put together and work for more than just groceries. I'm buying them for family and friends as gifts as well. Well worth the money.
Your chico bags are great. I ordered several and gave one to each coworker as part of our earthday festivities. Hopefully it will generate much less use of plastic bags. Everyone loved them. Thank you.... Monica L.
I'm crazy about Chico Bags. After I bought my first one, I bought a dozen to give away to my friends. I'm ready to order my second dozen to give away. Everyone loves to get them as a gift. Molly B
I LOVE MY CHICO BAGS!!! These are the best, so easy to always have on hand. Everyone needs/should have reusable bags!!! If you dont have any yet...they make you feel great about doing your part to save our precious land! Celebrate The Earth!! Happy Earth Day!!
i really love the convenience of the Chico bag. i keep it handy in my purse and have had several occations to use it, esp. when i have used up my other reuseable grocery bags. thanks so much for your products. hopefully, more people will see the benefits and convenience of going reuseable!!
I love these! I keep one in our diaper bag just to have on hand, and the rest in the car for groceries. They fold very small which is nifty, although not practical for the grocery store. The ones in my car I keep un-folded so the bagger doesn't have to wrestle with them. They hold a lot and are very strong. Now if only I could remember to bring them IN to the store every time!
I love Chico bags. My family and I discovered them at our local organic store and are always buying them as gifts for friends - cheap and really practical! I wanted to write a review because the reviews here seem to suggest you can ONLY buy them online - I encourage people to seek out a local co-op or Whole Foods, Earth Fare, or other local organic concept store. Chico bags can be found at most of these locations, and Whole Foods has their own version (pocketbook-sized fold-up) for about $1.50. I encourage you to GO GREEN and seek out local alternatives to cross-country shipping, when you can find this product and others like it near home!
I love these bags. I take them everywhere. I get lots of great comments and they store nicely in my purse and glove compartment.
The Chico bag is a great product. Several features demonstrate careful attention to design detail, including the integrated storage pouch and handles designed to fit on the standard plastic bag dispenser so it is easy for store clerks to pack the bag. One cahier even commented how she would love one to use as a beach bag!
Great bags! Compact in size, yet large enough to fit more groceries in than a plastic bag. I would definitely recommend these.
Love my new Chico Bag! I can keep it in my pocket, so now when I go to the grocery store "just for milk" after work and end up also needing 5 other items, I don't have to come away with a plastic bag. I've gotten compliments on it too. Great color. Lots of room. A+!
I love my ChicoBags. I keep one in my purse for quick trips to the store and bring the other five along for weekly groceries. They hold quite a bit of stuff and the bright red color is very cheerful.
I absolutely love these compact bags! They are easy to carry around and they hold as much as a regular bag. I receive complements all the time on my Chicobags. Everyone wants to know where I bought these nifty bags!
I love my chico bags! They are so useful and compact, I always have one in my purse and you can fit so much into them.
I really love the reusable bag. It was actually a gift for my husband. My other bags are too femine for him. This light and compact bag is perfect to keep in the glove compartment for unexpected shopping trips. Thank you for a useful and well made product!
love the chicobag, as it is so compact, i keep one in my pocketbook and one in my car's glove box. people in line at the market always compliment me, and i always encourage them to get some.
Great bags. Durable, compress well... just easy to integrate into a routine. I just keep them in the car, so they're always there when I shop.
I had bought a Chico bag at The Vitamin Shoppe before Christmas- went back to buy all I could for stocking stuffers for my kids and they were sold out! I love these little bags cos they can hold 3 times what most store bags hold and are indestructable- no rips from rolling around in the trunk with surprise drop-outs! My husband keeps several in his truck, too.
Love the chico bag. It's holds more than I would have thought. It's sturdy and best of all it's always with me. Now I never forget my bags at the supermarket.
I am so happy every time I use my new Chico reusable bag. It just feels so good to know that every time I use it, I am saving a plastic bag. I love the quality and color of my bag, it's so easy to use and bring along wherever I go. I even attached it to my key chain so I wouldn't forget it!
With my visual impairment, it's worthwhile to have ORANGE Chicobags for shopping. That color reminds me to grab with me before going out for shopping. The compact bag is about the right for food. I realize using chicobags make me proud and hope to influence other people in the line at cashiers since that color is very bright and happy! Also, it's very lighter to carry - cool! Thx!
I carry this bag with me everywhere - it's so tiny it fits right in my purse and I'm never without a reusable bag during trips to the grocery or drug store. I highly recommend this one!!
I lov my compact reusable bags! I can ake them anywhere and I love not having all of those plastic bags around. I would order more bags from this site any day.
Very neat and compact, I love this bag. It holds a lot of groceries and does not hurt my hands when carrying. Would recomend.
I am an IKEA employee, and I was so happy to hear that we were going to start charging for plastic bags a year ago . Prior to the charge of 5 cents customers were grabbing handfuls. It was ridiculous. I have had many customers insult my company, tell me it's "stupid" and actually yell at me. Recently I have seen customers come through with Chicobags and I am going to look into this. What a great idea. I like the fact that they are are not bulky and easy to bring with you.
Great bag! Folds up ultra-compact, sturdy, holds plenty, easily washable!
I *LOVE* the Chico reusable bag. It is so compact and easy to carry around, I'm never without one. They hold a ton of stuff too. It was my Christmas gift to everyone I saw this past holiday. I highly recommend the Chico bag. :)
I LOVE these bags!!! I've been using various types of reusable bags for several years now, some of those mesh ones, some cloth from various health food stores, a giant Ikea bag. The one problem I had with all of them is that I would forget and leave them in the car when I went shopping. Or I would buy something somewhere that I wasn't planning too, so I wouldn't have a bag with me. With these Chico bags and their little self-contained pouch, I keep two or three of them in my fairly small purse, so I always have them with me. I don't have to plan ahead, they're just there. :-) They've made it really easy to kick the plastic bag habit.
Great product. Easy to use and carry and have available.
A friend gave me a ChicoBag a few months ago and I love it so much that I ordered some to give to my friends. They are great- I am using mine in Hawaii right now as a tote when I'm not lugging groceries in it. Thanks.
I love these bags. Very strong - I know they will last me a long time. Shaped like the plastic grocery bags so they are easy to carry, but MUCH stronger, so they hold more. I don't have to worry about those flimsy plastic bags breaking and groceries spilling out all over when I am halfway from my car to my front door with the bags. Plus, I am helping the environment, by using these - I even bought them in GREEN to remind myself to focus on being more environmentally friendly. I bought six for now and I keep them in my car - I will be taking them into ALL the stores I shop in from now on. GREAT PURCHASE!
I love the Chico bag and have been using it constantly. It is exactly what I hoped for - small inside my purse, big and strong outside for carrying things, and easy to change between the two places. I liked it so much I got one for my daughter.
I love these bags, ordered a bunch to give to friends and to use for grocery shopping. Have ended up using them for lots of other things too, since they fit so well in my purse. Love the colors, they're sturdy and yet compact. They make me smile.
Cannot use the right words to say how great the Chico bags are. A customer of ours always used them and now that we have our four and really happy with them. I carry one with my laptop case, my wife has one in her purse and the other two we hang on the hall tree for planned shopping trips. Brian Neumann
ChicoBags are the best! They fit into a tiny bag and they are really lightweight, so I carry it everywhere in any purse or bag I'm carrying. They also fit a ton, and are very strong (they hold up to things like pointy cereal boxes, etc, that usually rip plastic bags). Long story short, I'm a big fan.
Love these bags. were recommended to me by a fellow holistic mom and bought 4 of them for the trips out to all stores not just for groceries. great product with a great price!
A friend gave me a CHICO bag. I had made an effort to stop taking plastic bags but always managed to leave my canvas bags in the car. With the CHICO bag in my purse I never forgot it. I thought it was such a good idea that I bought close to 40 chico bags to give away to my friends if they promise to stop using plastic bags. They love it. It is about time for another order - I have given almost all of them away.
I really appreciate how handy the Chico compact bags are to carry in my purse. People are amazed when I say, "Just a minute. . I have a bag," and then open my Chico bag! The service was great and the site is very easy to navigate. Thanks, Mary H.
Very durable! I enjoy being able to reuse these bags everytime I go shopping instead of having to waste plastic bags.
I love these bags. I will never forget mine, because it folds up nice and small so I can carry it in my purse. Because of this, its perfect for quick runs to the grocery store. I have used mine at least a dozen times already, and it is still in great condition. It is also pretty easy for the cashier to use, as they just attach them to where the plastic bags typically go. I will be buying one of these for everyone in my family to carry.
I have bought 8 of the Chico bags. I love them. They are so compact and easy to use. The storage mechanism of these bags is ingenous. My husband and I are trying to eliminate plastic bags from our life. With the convenience of the Chico bags I believe we will accomplish this. I plan to order more bags. I had a clerk at a store yesterday state she liked the bag and wanted to know where I got it. They are great. I keep them in the trunk of my car so they will be available when I need them.
These bags are great! They fit in your purse or coat pocket. I bought a whole bunch and gave them to friends and family and they all love them too!
the bags are great... everyone I give them to love them...
I am thrilled with the ChicoBag. The selection of colors is great, and the quality of the bags is outstanding. It is so easy to keep a bag or two in my purse or in the car so I have one readily available, even for the quick stops at the grocery store. Thanks for offering quality products, great service, and for helping us help the environment.
These are great-- I love that they pack up into the tiny bag. I even got my hubby to use one to take his lunch to work (now that we don't get plastic grocery bags, any that we have are solely dedicated to litter box cleaning.) I keep one clipped to my work bag, and plan to leave one in each car. I don't use them as my regular grocery shopping bags, as I have big canvas bags that work wonders. These though are perfect for having on hand whenever and wherever. Highly recommend!
I LOVED my reusable ultra compact bags. I showed them to my boss at work, and we are even in the process of having our name put on some to give out at our store in order to promote saving our environment. I am also giving away a few of the ones that I purchased for gifts. The only thing is that a few of them did rip just a little whenever I opened them. It was probably my fault...I'm not really complaining, but maybe make the seams a little stronger?
Thank you for a handy, compact, durable, problem solver bag. I love it and bought more.
I have three of these bags. They are the ones I always remember to bring. Even my children each have a Chico bag. The attached pocket so you can stuff them inside it and the carabiner so you cna clip it to your backpack or purse are very handy.
I really like this bag. I'm a student and have to lug a huge backpack on my back to school every day, and there is just no room in there for a canvas shopping bag. Plus I don't think I could handle any extra weight on my back! The ChicoBag is so lightweight and portable - I just clip it onto my backpack's zipper, and use it whenever I'm running errands after school on my way home. it folds up into its little pouch very easily, too. Highly recommended.
I really like that they're light-weight. They wad up into this really small pouch attached to the inside with a draw string and carbeener. I clip them all together to carry to the store with me. They hold just as much or slightly more than a regular plastic grocery bag.
I received the order very quickly. I gave the bags to friends as gifts and everyone uses and likes them. Good product.
I love these little bags. Two fit perfect in the bottom of my purse so they are handy any time, esp for those unexpected runs into the store. I highly recommend the larger Acme reusable bags for regular shopping but these are perfect in a pinch.
I ordered some Chico bags for myself and a couple of my friends. So far, we all love them! They are very strong, they don't hurt your fingers or hands while carrying them, and I love the colors we got. Plus, I've seen similar products at stores that were more expensive - I think the prices on this site are very good for what you get. Thank you!
I LOVE these bags!! I'm religious about using them in the stores and have passed on your website to many, many people. Thank you for making it so affordable, too!
I own several Chico bags and use them most often at the grocery store and the farmers' market (in the summer). I added to my supply and have gotten compliments from family members, baggers at the stores and friends. They are strong, colorful and very functional. I am thrilled not to be using so many plastic bags as before. The bags are a good value and are easy to wash and reuse.
ChicoBags are the BEST! These are the only reusable bags I've tried that I actually use all of the time. They fit so easily in my purse that I can have them handy when I need them. And they are much stronger than you'd think - heavy cans and jars are no problem.
I found this product great! It is so easy to keep one or two in your purse for those unexpected shopping trips. They are strong enough for my grocries and easy to pack full. I love the fact that they take up so little space yet can fit so much inside them. It feels great knowing your doing something good for the environment, and the color lets others know too; so maybe the trend will catch on! Here's to hoping. Mollie
These bags are great! I will definitely order more in the future! They are so compact and easy to carry around in your purse!
I really like my bags. They compact down to a small packet that can drop into my purse or coat pocket. I connect them all together with the clips and store them in my trunk so I always have them. They are a littler larger and stronger than a plastic grocery bag and that is good!
This bag is very convenient. I put one in each car for the quick trip to get a last minute item. Our local grocer is even giving a discount if we bring our own bags in. This bag is saving me money.
I LOVE my new shopping bags. I keep them in my purse and pull them out whenever I need to. They are pretty much exactly the size of plastic bags from the grocery store, but they are stronger, more eco-friendly, and of course PRETTIER. The fold up to the size of small dinner roll and are very easy to stuff back into their little carrying bags. The carrying bags are attached so you won't lose them which is really good for me! I ordered 5 and plan to order more. I also plan on ordering some for friends and family.
I love the Chico Bag! I am actually carrying it in my purse so even if I buy something unexpectedly, I have my own bag to use. Also - it's strong and very light.
These bags are great. I carry them in my purse, on my key chain, and in my car. They are so handy that I use them when I grab a few groceries or even shopping at the mall. The bags are lightweight and easy to carry. I love the way they fold into the little pouch. They are also pretty heavy duty. Great product. . . I will buy more for sure and not just for myself. I know have friends asking about themn.
My Chico bags are cute and functional. I love how they pack up into such a small size and I can keep one in my purse. The bag holds a surprisingly large amount of groceries and can handle a lot of weight. The handles are comfortable on the hands and I love the earth picture decoration. The cashier at Bartell's thought I was such a weirdo for insisting on using my own bag. She'd better get used to it!
My mother had spied my ChicoBag, and loved it's tiny size and practicality. I had to get her one for her Christmas stocking, but when I saw all of the fun colors....needless to say, I purchased a baker's dozen! For every whim and mood, I clip a ChicoBag in my purse...ready to haul any load I choose. Thank you for carrying such a "wee" bag, that does a "great" good for our planet!
I bought several of the tiny "tote-on a keychain" stocking stuffers- what a hit! Everyone loved the colors, and the novelty of a big, sturdy tote stuffed into such a teeny size!
It's a great bag. Compact enough to fit in the coat pocket so you don't forget.
Great bag! I love how little it is and how I can carry it in any of my bags or purses. Fantastic!!!
I love my green chicobag, which fits easily into my purse so I don't ever have to remember to take it with me. I use the bigger paper-bag shaped bags (green Bags) for grocery shopping but I like this for the little incidental things that I pick up here and there.
I love the ChicoBags. They fit right in my purse. I love the clip on them so I can clip them together and keep in my car for shopping trips. Each bag is very strong and holds a lot of groceries. The colors are fun, too. I am buying some for gifts.
These bags are a great value! They are inexpensive, and very sturdy. I am amazed at how many more items can fit into these bags, than what is placed into the typical plastic grocery bag--thus saving me trips unloading the car! The colors are great, and the less they look like the store's bags, the better! They do fold so tiny and nicely into their little attached pouch.
These bags are great! Would recommend them highly! Just wish I could get the people bagging my items to stop looking at me like I am from Mars when I tell them neither paper or plastic but my own bags.
Great bags...great colors. They fit quite well in my purse and seem to be very well constructed. Although they appear to be the same size as an average retail plastic bag, they hold much more and do not cut into my hands they way the plastic ones do when they are full. I also don't need to worry about the bag ripping and things falling out any more. A REALLY GREAT PRODUCT!
I LOVE them, wish I could put our logo on them and give them to EVERY patient. I am using it to go to the store, on and out of the office, at the barn and to educate patients!!!
These bags are great! These are larger than the average plastic grocery bag and certainly more durable and also able to handle some accidental spillages. My 8 year old came home one day and insisted that he wanted one for his holiday gift. He'd seen it at the nature center. He loves it and he's given away two as gifts. My son attaches his to his belt loop and whenever we shop he not only whips his out but he packs the items into the bag himself. We use ours - I have the black, he has the blue - to carry so many items, not just groceries. Thank you for helping make sustainable living more accessible to my child and me.
My wife and mother in law really love it so much.Now I have to buy some more for them.These bags are really useful and environment saver.....
Having only used the Chico bags once, I'm impressed. They seem to carry a lot of groceries without the fear of breaking so common to the grocerer's plastic. Be assured, I'll continue using them and should I have and difficulties (doubtful) I will let you know. Having lived in Chico from 1972 - 1979 I enjoyed making a purchase from the 'ol homestead'! Thanks again!
I bought these bags for my friends, and ended up getting one for myself! They are awesome, I always have it in my purse, ready to use in ANY store. I love the size and strength of the bag. It's not a fashion bag, but the colors allow you to show a bit about yourself. Plus, they're cheap! :) Highly recommended!
Chico bags are super easy to stash in my purse, glove compartment, or desk drawer. I ordered the fuschia ones but can't wait to get other colors, too. Gave some as gifts but kept one. I've always got it with me but it never get in the way. They hold quite a bit and can take more weight than I thought they would. Attached storage bag and drawstring makes it extra convenient.
i absolutely love the chico bag (i bought 4 in magenta!). they're durable, easy to clean and so compact. i thought it might be a pain to carry MORE stuff in my purse, but they fit perfectly in the corner and are such a great conversation piece. my mom took one of mine and my mother-in-law asked about them, also. i'm going to stock up and give them as gifts. they're a great way to help save the environment and there are colors to suit everyone's personality!
The Chico bag is awesome. It's compact enough to fit in my pocket, yet roomy enough to hold a lot. There is a great color selection too. It's my favorite gift for people (including myself).
I love these bags, they're easy to use, the right size, and they help the environment.
I bought four after reading an article about Chico bags and how they help the environment. My mother-in- law, sister-in-law, and brother asked to try one out over the holidays and kept them because they loved them!! I love mine and use mine so much, that my only regret is that I didn't buy more!!
The ChicoBag is great! I bought a bunch for Christmas presents and passed them out to my family. It is so simple to make them a part of your daily life, because of how easy they compact! I was worried that it would be a hassle to get the whole bag back into the little carrier pouch, but it takes maye 30 seconds! You just throw them in your purse and go! I use mine at the grocery store, drug store, taking my lunch to work, and have used it several times at the mall when purchasing clothes. They are very sturdy!
We are really enjoying your bags and are thinking of ordering more.
I ordered the little reusable bag that you carry in your purse and the lunch tote. The lunch tote was a gift and is loved. The Chicago Bag I have in my purse is GREAT. I've used it and love it. All I have to do is have it ready at the checkout and I'm all set. It takes up very little room, but holds enough items when I run into a store to pick up a few things! Everyone should have one or two! Thankyou, Peggy
These bags are awesome! I like that they are small enought when folded up, but are a good sized bag to use for groceries. I also like having the ablity to attach them to a belt loop or purse using the carabiner. And of course, not using plastic bags is always a huge motivation! I bought several as stocking stuffers for family.
I purchased these for my mother because she shops at Costco a lot and they don't have grocery bags there, just a box that they'll put everything in-- if you're lucky. She even purchased their reusable bags, but they were so big she never brought them in the store with her. She is so happy with these bags because she can throw them in her purse and go. She also loves the material (umbrella material she says) and I'm thinking about buying one for myself!
I gave these as stocking stuffers this Christmas and they were a hit. They're officially my signature gift from now on. I love how the stuff bag is attached. It takes exactly 27 seconds to stuff it back in . . .yes, I used a stopwatch. ;-)
Gave the Chico bags to family back east and they loved the size.
I bought these for my Mom for her birthday. I filled one with Earth friendly cleaning products and put the other in the bag. They fold up so easily and are really tiny and light but super strong too. I now have bag envy...I'm going to buy a few for me and my husband as well:)
The chico bags are excellent!! They are extremely strong and durable, hold many groceries at once and so easy to handle. They also fold up VERY easily and can be thrown in a purse or bag or car glove compartment. Everyone should have them in order to make our world cleaner.
Exactly the size and design of the plastic grocery bags, but re-usable and with an attached pouch to store it in--this is really great! Nice bright colors, too. I keep one in my purse and find that I use it quite a bit when getting just a few things at a drugstore or grocery store. These would be good stocking-stuffers or Secret Santa gifts.
I was so pleased, they are awesome bags, and very cute. I gave some to my stepfather who is a die-hard "I'm noyt taking a bag to the store...' guy and even he will use them since they fit into his pocket. Best reusable bags out there, although a swedish company puts out a very similiar bag, but hard to order.
Very satisfied with product, shipment arrived promptly (even during holiday season). Product is good quality, meets expectations as advertised. The Chicobag is very compact and convenient - I carry it everyday so it's always handy to use.
I bought about 15 green bags as Christmas gifts this year. And they were a huge hit! I bought a couple for myself too and absolutly LOVE my bags. They are nice and compact and fit in my small pocketbook, plus has a clip you can clip to your jeans if you have to, and they are STRONG! I fit so much in them. No matter what bag you buy, just stop using plastic bags! :)
I bought these bags as a gift for my sister, but had to check them out first. I ended up giving her two out of the four that I bought. I love them. They are just the right size for everything I need and the material is really durable. Great product.
Hooray for ChicoBags! After seeing a mention of them in the Boston Globe, I ordered 20 of them for Christmas. I gave them to friends, neighbors and co-workers, and their responses were very positive! I made sure that each of them read the little tag with its green message, and asked them to further phase out their use of plastic bags by buying some of the inexpensive fabric bags now being offered at supermarkets. Thank you for an excellent product, and giving me an opportunity to spread the word!
Overall, I loved this bag. The fabric is very sturdy and the bag is constructed really well. It was thick enough to hide the contents (which contained Christmas presents) from my children. The colors are very vibrant. I kept the red and mango for myself, and gave the blue, purple, and pink as Christmas gifts. I really liked the compact size, because it can fit easily in your purse or a coat pocket. My only minor complaint is that the bag is a little smaller than I expected. I was still able to fit a lot of items in it though, and would definitely buy it again, for myself or for gifts.
These are wonderful. I use them and they are compact and convenient. I also gave them away as Christmas presents. They also got rave reviews. It's a wonderful product and much easier to tote around than bulky canvas bags.
These are great bags. I put them under the tree from Santa so we can start a new green year. So far they have been a big success - they store alot! People have been intrigued that they fold up into their own little bag. I will be getting more.
I love my ChicoBags so much I just bought 6 to give as Christmas presents. Everyone was thrilled to have something so compact that they can take it with them everywhere and use instead of getting plastic bags from the store. Every little bit helps.
These are great. I have several, and have given them as gifts, and everyone is satisfied. I use big canvas bags for groceries, but usually forget to bring them into stores when shopping. These are compact and light-weight enough to carry everywhere. I like having the sack attached, and they clean up easily.
I purchased these bags as my wrapping paper for the gifts I gave out this year. The feedback I received from most is that they love the product. I personally did not keep any for myself as I use various other types of bags, and don't mind carrying around my cloth bags.
I needed a little something to give the ladies in the office and these bags fit the bill. They were way more appreciated than yet another box of candy or some random gift card. I plan to order a few more to us as simple yet thoughtful thank you gifts for the kids' teachers, coaches and team parents.
I love these bags! They can be clipped together and attached to a belt loop or a purse. These bags make it "easy being green."
Very fashionable, really compact, and super strong. A great reusable bag!
I gave these bags to my son, nieces and nephew as part of their Christmas gift - they loved them! Especially when I showed them how the bags could be attached to their purses or backpacks - let's hope they use them.
The best way to make sure you always have your reusable bag with you is if you can always carry it in your purse or pocket. This bag is perfect. I got one as a gift, then bought more for myself and gave them away as gifts as well. I love them!
Great size and color (mango). Convenient to carry in purse. Also worked well as a small gift.
Love the bags! Will probably order more as gifts. Thanks!
I use these bags as grocery bags and shopping bags. I like that you can stuff them and they don't tear like plastic bags do. The bags hold alot more than a regular grocery plastic bag or paper bag. I especially like that the bags can be stored in a small pouch that can fit in your purse-they also store very easily. I bought the blue bags, because I knew my husband wouldn't use a brightly colored bag. I think the bags are worth what I paid for them. I have been telling so many people about them.
Chico Bags are wonderful! Since I purchsed the first two, I have bought 5 more as gifts for friends who also love the convenience and carrying capacity. Everyone should have at least one of these!
The Chicobag is fantastically convenient--they fit in a pocket, in your backpack/purse, or in the glove compartment of your car and they can hold more weight than a regular plastic bag reliably. The color selection is also excellent :)
I love my Chico bag so much that I bought a number of them to give out as Christmas gifts. My friends love them too. They hold an amazing amount, are durable, and compact so I can fit it in my purse. It's great to show up at the checkout counter and pull that little bag out and watch it unfold to hold a hand basket full of groceries.
I love my new reusable bags and so do most check out clerks who fill them.
These little bags are fabulous- the kids at the grocery store love them! I gave them as stocking stuffers this christmas!
Recently purchased 4 of the chicobags and really do like them. So easy to keep in your purse. I've only used once for groceries and they were filled to the brim and remained very sturdy. I just have to get into the habit of using them! I'll catch on......do hate those plastic bags hanging all over our trees and blowing in the streets. kathleen
Thank you for your bags--I love knowing that I am helping the environment!
I love this bag. I ve bought them for everyone including clients for Christmas this year! This could end plastic bags!
The Chico Bags are a great item. It is easy to take them with you in the little pouch. I always have a eco-friendly bad when I need one.
I love these bags. I used them as "bows" on top of holiday gifts to all of my children's teachers this year. They were a huge hit. Unfortunately, I did not have a single one left to enjoy for myself. Next year I will order several extras. For now I will stick to my "plastic bags blow" bag. I always get some giggles whenever I use it. It is an easy way to inform and encourage without being to preachy.
Love the Chico bags and I love how interactive reusablebags.com is with their customers. Thanks!
ChicoBags are so practical. I am giving them out to all of my family and friends as gifts. Our whole family uses them!
Love the reusable bags, they are roomy and easy to bring with me to the stores. They hold a lot of items and can be washed easily. I love all the color choices too. I have had people stop me and ask me where I got them.
Great little bags for stocking stuffers. I plan to give one to everyone on my list. Very handy and very sturdy for their little size.
I dont ever want to hear the excuse "I left my canvas bag in the car, I forgot!". These bags are the greatest ever! Keep them in your purse to save on using plastic bags. They hold quite a bit. Make great stocking stuffers!Every one needs one of these! I loooove them!
This bag is terrific. It can go everywhere in a purse or pocket, so one never needs to take a store plastic bag.
I just ordered my ChicoBags three days ago and they already arrived and I am SOO excited to use them!! I can't believe how easy it is to fold these things in and out of the handy bag attached to them! Such an easy way to store them - they are so much smaller bundled up than I thought! They have a great assortment of colors too! I got a variety of colors to give as Christmas gifts, but now I can't choose what colors I want to keep for myself!! I am so excited to start carrying these around instead of accumulating all those plastic bags that every store around here uses! This is a wonderful website - thank you sooo much for all the options & the extremely fast shipping!!! :D
I am very impressed by how light, yet strong this bag is. The best thing is how easy it is to get it in and out of its little pouch. I keep it in my purse and use it whenever I'm shopping - very handy!
I love love love my ChicoBags! I don't care if the cashiers look at me funny, I KNOW i'm doing the right thing for the environment by not using plastic bags! I'll be ordering the re-usable veggie bags soon! Thanks you guys for doing the right thing! Virve
I have been obsessed with these bags for the last 18 months. They are amazing! The integral stuff-sak is the key, that way you never worry about losing the little baggie. Fits in a handbag or pocket easily, so you can always have it with you and eliminate those yucky plastic bags! I was surprised to see that someone is upset about them being wrinkled, because I fail to see how a plastic bag is an attractive alternative accessory in the first place. Simply put, these are awesome and everyone stops to ask me where I got it.
This was my second purchase of chicobags. I'm giving "green" Christmas gifts this year and thought these handy bags would be a great addition. The chicobags I bought for myself have gotten a lot of use. They are very convenient since they fold up into their own tiny bag & can clip onto purses/backpacks/etc. Plus, I've found that I can fit a lot of groceries into one bag. They are very flexible and made of durable material, so I pack them much fuller than an ordinary plastic grocery bag. Although I have bigger reusable bags, these seem to fit more groceries because of the flexibility of the material. I really can't say enough about them: great price, sturdy/ flexible material, & convenient to use.
These are great! Easy to use, easy to tuck the folded package into my purse, holds a lot, and the handle is wide enough to hold comfortably.
Love the bags. They are so easy to use and light to carry in my purse. Wish stores would charge for bags so people would stop using plastic.
I love these bags!!! They fit into themselves just like collapsible windbreakers, and fit nicely into my purse. The navy color is what I would call bright blue. I like the green color the best.
I love them. I have used them about 5 times now. It is a hard habit to get into. There were a couple of times I was already in the store in line before I remembered. But I am trying my best. I have actually gotten a few compliments on them from the cashiers. One actually said, "wow, you have the fancy bags". That was the first time I used them. Thank you Chico bags for making a truly superior product.
I love these bags!! They are the same size as the plastic grocery store bags but you can pack them full and they won't tear or rip. The little storage bag they come in is attached so it won't get lost but I find it just as easy to keep all of my reusable bags inside of one of the bags in my car. If you only need to bring one bag in the store it bunches down small enough that you can keep it in your purse. Now I just need to decide what color to get next time!! The purple I have is beautiful!! Kelly L
These bags are really great! I just keep 4 in my little purse and I always have a bag whenever I might need one. They're really sturdy and they hold alot too. I'm so glad that I bought these bags. In fact, I'm thinking of giving some for Christmas presents this year to my friends who seem to "have everything"!
I love my blue Chico bag, it is so compact and easy to use. I have many big canvas grocery bags but I keep this one clipped to my purse so when I make a quick or unexpected trip to the store I'm always prepared. I bought extra bags to give as Christmas gifts. I'm working on converting the gals at the office, should be easy with Chico bags!
Fantastic Product! And it collapses so easily into a small package when not in use. Love IT!
These bags are wonderful. I love them because I actually use them. In the past I've had canvas bags and string bags. I would keep them in my car and always forget to use them. With the ChicoBags, I can toss four of them in my bag (obviously not the smallest purse but not huge either) and I always have them. I also like the way the bags look and the fact that they hold a lot.
Works great - compact and lightweight, yet strong and sized just right to hold enough groceries without being too heavy when full.
These bags are everything others have said about them - fantastic because they're so compact, easy to carry, and wrinkly. I don't mind the wrinkles as much as some others seem to - what can you expect when you cram a bag into a 2 inch pouch? The best part of these bags is how portable they are, and another plus is the mini-carabiner in case you don't carry a purse or it won't fit. I would recommend these to anyone.
Sturdy, well-constructed and lightweight! Use to carry purchases, extra reports/paperwork to/from work and books/journals. Giving as Christmas gift to friends.
I love these bags so much I just bought a bunch to give as gifts. I can keep one in my handbag and it comes in handy almost daily. Plus it has a cute tiny carrabeener, what's not to love?!
The bags are great! I carry most in the car for grocery shopping and etc., but I also carry a couple of them in my motorcycle's saddlebags. Very convenient! And the main thing is NO MORE of those horrible plastic bags most grocery stores use...and no more brown paper bags ripping and dropping your groceries!!! The built-in compact storeage bag with clip is icing on the cake!!
The Chico bags are wonderful. Small enough to fit in a purse and the stuff sack is attached. No worrying about losing it. It holds a lot of groceries and seems to be plenty strong. Just have to remember to take it with me into the store.
My favorite thing is how small they are when not in use and that they store into a tiny bag that is attached!
These bags hold a ton and are really easy to carry around! I think I'm going to buy a bunch more for friends and family as holiday gifts! I would absolutely recommend this bag for EVERYONE, even the people just starting to use reusable bags.
I love the bags- I gave them as gift to my women's group on my 52nd birthday!
Simply amazing! What a simple yet innovative product.
Great bags. I'm getting good use from them. However, I don't really like the fact that you require 50 characters for this review. You may delete the last two lines if you wish.
We really like these bags. They roll up really small but can hold quite a bit - we can carry 2 gallon containers of milk in one bag. Cashiers are always surprised at how much they can cram in there!
I bought the bags for Christmas presents--I am sure the people will LOVE them.
Very convenient to carry around. The bag itself isn't very stylish - but it squishes so small that I can carry it in my handbag all the time.
I think the bags are great. They are strong and I have already used them for clothes shopping and produce shopping, as well as at the grocery store.
I totally love these. and the baggers at the store pack more into these than they do the plastic ones.
This bag is just perfect for carrying in my purse and hence always ready to accomodate my little purchases around town. I no longer have to take any bags from stores. My one problem with this product is the carrying sack. When the bag comes out of the sack it is a mess. I would never carry such a wrinkled up bag. So I washed it and ironed it and now I just roll up and carry it that way. I wish the name on it was not as prominent and that the color was more conservative. But I do love this bag and it gets used everyday.
I LOVE the ChicoBags. They are convenient to carry in my purse for unexpected purchases and I have several in my car for grocery shopping. I will be wrapping all of my Christmas gifts in ChicoBags this year to help spread the word about reusable bags to my friends and family. They make a cute package with a ribbon tied around the top. And no more gift wrap to buy and dispose of! The bright cheerful colors are my favorite.
Convenient loop makes it easy for me to carry my water bottle with one finger so my hands are free for my purse, bags, etc.
I love my ChicoBags....I'm just one person trying to making a difference. But the ChicoBag may be responsible for opening other's eyes. Several people have stopped me and asked about the bags and where they can get them! They are a great product for their durability and convenience, but they also make a statement with the bold colors that catch the attention of others. Love the product and plan to buy several more!
These are my bag of choice for light shopping in minor stores (i.e. drug store, book store, card store). The compactness and ability of bag to roll up and fold in on itself is what makes this bag so special. I have one in my desk drawer at work for any lunch time shopping jaunts, and I carry one around in my hangbag at all times - for the times you never know you might pop into a store. Oh, and as purple is my color, it was great getting them in my favorite color. I have purchased several more of these bags as holiday gifts -trying to convert, no educate - my friends and family to living this sustainable way, starting with something as easy as reusabale shopping bags! With Chicobags that won't be hard.
These bags are very nice. The stuff sack is attached to the bag so it can't get lost and it is easy to stuff back in.
I love the ChicoBag because it is easy to carry both in its pouch and when in use with shopping in. The handles are nice and wide and It is the perfect size. The clip is extremely useful for remembering it and clipping other bags onto it. I hightly reccomend it and have bought several of them and plan to use them constantly.
This is one of my favorite products you sell. It's so nifty and readily available. An added bonus: when the bag's 'in use,' I can stick my keys in the little storage pouch! That way, I know right where they are when I leave the store. Thank you for your great products!
The ChicoBags are great. I carry a couple of them in my purse so they are handy for purchases throughout the day. My husband took one look at them and said "You'll never get that bag stuffed back into that little carrying sack!". He was wrong about that as they are easy to poke back into the little sack that is attached to the bag. After emptying at home, I just pop them back into my purse for the next shopping trip. I also have one in the glove compartment in the car so it's handy for use.
The Chico Bag is especially convenient because I can attach it to my purse and have it readily available. I have reduced plastic bags in my house by 90 perecent. Everyone should have at least one. Kathy Clausen
I love these bags. They are sturdy, strong and lightweight. They compress down into their own stuff sacks, which makes them easy to carry in my purse. It's also great to have one on hand in the glove compartment of the car. I use them for groceries, as well as trips to the farmer's market, Target and mall stores. Banish plastic bags from your life by purchasing a couple of these little guys! They're excellent!
I have been trying different bags when grocery shopping and none of them worked easily. This is a great product and solution.
loved this bag...took it to the farm market, gave one to my friend and this bag held up to lots of fruits and veggies. i keep one in my purse all the time...saves on plastic bag use when i stop in the store for only a few items....great value.
I brought these bags because of the wonderful reviews they have received. I was impress how dependable and compact they are are. I bought four bags and they easy hold a week's worth of groceries. A great buy!
I have the lime green ChicoBag and really like it. I keep it attached to my purse at all times. I have been able to avoid using plastic bags through several shopping trips and even got a compliment on it from a grocery store bag boy. It was his first time to bag with a ChicoBag. This really is a good sturdy bag. Its easy to open up from the pouch and easy to put back in.
I love these bags! They hold so much, and because they fold down so compactly, I just throw them in my purse or glove compartment, and always have them handy.
This bag is a lifesaver. It stores in my small-sized purse and I like having it. I find myself in need of a bag more often than I would have thought, and it's great to be able to pull it out and just have it handy. Mine is still a bit wrinkled when in use, but not enough to make me like it any less. This is the kind of handy thing that everyone should have on them.
I ordered two bag types, the Chico bag and one that is more like a grocery store paper bag. I use the Chico bag more often and I like to clip it onto my purse. It holds alot and the fact that it can be compressed into a small bag is a plus. Very satisfied. Recently gave some for gifts. Thanks
love, love, love these bags. Made a great gift and are used all the time.
The bags are great!! The ability to "smash" them down to a little bag makes them easily portable. I've bought some for my daughter as well - she's got a baby at home and the bags have really been handy when out shopping.
Thses bags are great and using them has elicited varied response. At all but one store they were easy to use, but my experience at the local Walmart upon 2 occasions was met with resistance from the check out clerks. After the second time I stopped at the pleasant greeter and asked for a supervisor. She was very pleasant and promised to bring up the situation at a meeting of the empoyees. My next visit went great. I have been approached by fellow customers as I have been unstuffing my bags and have shared your website with many people, including many of the check out clerks. Thank you for such a practical and easy way to help our earth, she's the only one we have.
These bags are awesome. I use them for everything. I even got free coupons at a store I used them in for being so cool. They're super-strong and just 2 of them held what probably would have taken at least 5 plastic bags at the grocery store.
Perfect! Great to have in the glove box, as well as in the diaper bag or backpack! We have washed them, and they came out perfect too! Fun colors, make it really stand out, against the sea of green and natural color reusable bags we have.
The chicobag is great! It fits nicely in my (very small) purse and holds tons of stuff, even heavy library books. Great buy!
I love them! They're reasonably priced and so convenient-- very east to carry in my pocket book, sturdy, hold a lot, come in their own little bag (that stays attached to the bag when you open it)... and I love the color I got (lime green). All around, a great bag!
Love the Chico bags. I actually got a different color than I ordered (got lime instead of moss green) but it makes for great marketing -- you can't miss them, and people ask about them all the time. I do wish that they didn't have the logo on them (though it is rather discreet). I will be ordering more soon, as I've already lost one to raccoons on a camping trip. They're tough, but not raccoon-proof! :) Thanks!
I LOVE my new ChicoBags! This is the first time I have used reusable shopping bags and these are so handy! You really can take them anywhere and I have gotten many comments about how cute they are. They do stay really wrinkly due to the stuff sack but they're still so handy! I do find it useful to get them out before I get to the checkout (like while waiting in line) because otherwise you're standing there trying to hurry and get them out while they're inside out. Great product.
I love the Chico Bag! Just as others have said they stow in purses well and I clip mine together so that I have them all. Yesterday at the grocery store the bagger questioned if they could handle the weight of my purchase ( 2 one liter bottles of juice in one and many produce items in another ) and I told him with a smile "They're Chicos, they're cool, and they can handle that and more). Plus in my mind I was saying "Plus the Mango color is delicious"). Why did I wait so long to get these?
I love these bags. They are strong and hold a lot, and the little stuff sacks are easy to use. Just perfect!
I bought the ChicoBag to carry the foot attachments of my wheelchair. I saw the reusable bag on the internet and the measurements seemed adequate to hold them. I wasn't sure if it would be tough enough to transport them but it's working out for me. I'm so glad I found your site. Thank you, Sandra
I am thrilled with the ChicoBag.......so easy to pop in your purse or throw into one of the large bags......they are sturdy as well. I feel good about using my own bags.
I have purchase both the Chico bags and the Ecobags (black hemp string) and I must say that I love them both. The hemp string are great for the fresh veggies & fruit markets and the Chico are great for the regular grocery store items although I have used them both for everything. I have also purchased them for my 3 daughters.
I like my Chico bags, but I do prefer the Acme ones. The Chico has a drawstring with a cinch and a little hook to snap it onto something else. I do not have a use for this mechanism, as I keep my bags stuffed into my purse. Although I prefer the Acme ones, I still highly recommend the Chicos. They are strong and durable and cost a bit less than the Acmes. It is amazing how much groceries these bags (and the Acmes) will hold and how much easier it is to tote them into the house when you get home. I use them at every store, not just for groceries.
I'm really like my Chico bags. I work at Wal-Mart, and I carry one in my pocket all the time to carry items I purchase for lunch, or for items I purchase before going home. I also carry two in my purse to use whenever I might need them. I just feel good about myself knowing that I am personally doing something for the environment. I use my Chico bag almost every day. It not only is attractive and versatile, but it is also very durable, packing even very heavy loads.
Great color (purple)! I clip the bag onto my purse when I'm shopping at small shops like gift shops or at the drug store. Using this bag is convenient, and I'm happy to not bring home unnecessary plastic bags. I definitely recommend this bag.
I have been using the ChicoBag for about two weeks now, for general shopping and grocery shopping. They hold up well, are easy to carry, and very convenient. I keep them in my car, where they take up very little space. Good product!!
We love these bags! They are so compact, but hold so much!
LOVE LOVE LOVE! The Chico Bag is very compact and the clip is very handy. I love to clip my bag to the handle of my purse so I always remember to use it even when I'm in a hurry. The bag folds back up easily after use. I'm actually about to purchase another bag. Get one! You will love it.
I find them to be very convenient, I keep one or two clipped to my purse. Since receiving them a three weeks ago, I think I have personally saved the use of over 20 plastic store bags.
I ordered the Chico reusable bags. I like the fact that they are the same size as regular shopping bags but I can fit so much more in them due to the durability of the fabric. I deep some in my purse and some in my car. I use them for shopping, my daughter's swimsuits after a day at the beach and just about anything I would normally use a plastic bag for. My daughters are thrilled because we are taking another step toward saving our environment.
The Chico Bags are so handy and compact, that I carry one in my purse at all times. The others are in the car ready to take in to the store. I'm amazed at how much merchandise they hold and since purchasing them I've not used one plastic bag. One of my friends has also decided to go green using your bags. Keep up the good work.
I absolutely love these bags! I keep them in the glove compartment so they are handy for use at the farmers market or grocery store. Highly recommended.
I use these bags all the time. It's so easy to stuff a few in your purse to go to the store. I loved them so much I had to buy more for other family members!
Received my Chico bags and was pleasantly surprised on several levels. They came with a nifty clip so that I can clip them together or clip them onto my purse. Small enough to keep inside my purse as well. Many people have asked about them, and my Chiropractor even thought they would make a great promotional gift for his patients! I am very pleased with the product, its design, its durability, and the price. Thanks!
These are great bags. They're basically the same size and shape of a regular plastic shopping bag (like a Whole Foods bag), but you can fill them with a lot of heavy things because they're very strong. I think the product description claims that these bags hold the equivalent of two shopping bags, but they really don't. I wish I had known this--I would have gotten twice as many as I did. You may want to think of how many grocery bags you normally fill week to week and get that amount. The green color is great--nice but not flashy.
Love the bags, the way they store easily, their tiny size ( yet they hold as much as any plastic bag... ) in their own attached pouch & hook, I usually walk & use a " Granny/ Grocery cart - as many call them..LOL " the bags fit easily into the cart so I can pack the groceries in.. plus the grocery store we use gives us 5 cents back for every Chico Bag we use .. am sure I'll soon order a few more .. just gotta dozen for starters. Thx for a great product :) TC & Be Well !
These bags are great! They are so compact and even fit in my pocket. I've become a bit of a celebrity at our local supermarket because they are so novel here. Anyone just making a move into the recycling/reusable material world should try these. I would suggest buying between 10-15 for a family of 4 shopping trip.
I love these bags. Knowing that my local market gives me a refund on every reusable bag I bring in, they will soon pay for themselves! Plus I'm doing a little for the environment; you can't beat that!
I've tried canvas bags, string bags, reusing plastic, all sorts of alternatives, all with no stick-to-it-iveness. Too messy, too inconvenient, too bulky, didn't have them with me, whatever. No excuses! I LOVE my new Chico bags! They're so small and truly compact, they're a cinch to carry literally everywhere and whip out of their little self-sac whenever needed, wash up if they get messy, and I can easily string a bunch of them together with their hooks for bigger trips. Not that I need many; one Chico bag takes the place of several cheap plastic bags. My children love to unfurl them and "get them ready", they're the first bag I've brought with me that didn't engender eyerolls from the cashier (I've even had them write down the Reusable Bags website, they were so impressed!), they hold a ton and are more comfortable to carry. So simple and perfect and easy, and even come in colors, so my husband can have his own stash! Thanks for making them available; I think everyone should have one or a handful. I can't think of any way to improve them.
Truthfully, I did not even think I could stick to actually using reusable bags, but I just love them. Best of all it is great to make people aware of how simple it is to make a positive change for the earth. Michelle Nast
I really like the chico bags and keep two of them in my purse all the time and they do come in handy.Not only at the grocery store but also when I need to carry things to and from work. I gave two of them to my boyfriend and his response was, they don't have any red ones? That's his favorite color so I guess the only down side is not enough color selection.
I love my ChicoBags and use them all the time. They pack up so small they fit in my purse. They are great for shopping, but I wanted to point out that because they are nylon they are handy for stashing a damp bathing suit if needed. There are so many great uses for these and, in my opinion, are much more versatile than canvas bags.
I was excited to receive my Ultra Compact ChicoBags so quickly after placing my online order. The size is perfect for not only groceries but also packing full of goodies for an outing with my grand-daughter. At the grocery store, when I pull those tiny pouches from my purse and unfurl my compact, purple bags I get quite a few stares. When people see how much they hold and how durable they are I then they want to know more. Thank you for helping reduce pollution and the need for oil "one bag at a time".
Love this bag! We store them in the side door of our cars. Very sturdy and about the size, if not bigger, of the plastic grocery bags. Lots of compliments at the store and farmer's market.
This is a great bag--very compact and also opens up to be a strong, easy-to-carry bag. I highly recommend it!
I love this bag! I received it as a birthday present and I carry it with me everywhere in my pocketbook. I have bought several more to gift or to sell to people in my office. Everyone who sees it marvels at the compactness! even better - the carrying bag is sewn into the bag seams, so you never have to worry about losing it.
I love these Chicobags! Easy to carry and when open lots of room! A great buy.
Great product. I was doubtful that it would really fold up back into it's little pouch but it works great. Easy to care in my purse and it has already come in handy many times.
I used this bag for shopping OTHER than food shopping. It worked very well and it stretches very wide (which is always helpful when picking up last minute things). Plus, the bags come in fun colors that look very trendy and you can use them basically anywhere! Planning on using them at the beach very soon!
I purchased four bags (2 for each car, since my husband often does the shopping). I ran them through the washer before using and they are now even softer. We love the handles. The cashier asked where we got them and how much they cost, and seemed suitably impressed. I have one suggestion. I wish that this same supplier also made these bags with square bottoms (for packaged goods and cans). We have two nylon Safeway bags from our years in Canada and they are good as new 15+ years later. We do feel a bit silly in the other grocery stores we frequent with a big red "S" on those bags!
These bags are great. I bought these as a gift for my mom for Mothers Day and she loves them. They hold about the same as a regular plastic bag. They also go back into the pouch very easily and are small enough to carry anywhere even in your purse. They seem very durable also.
These bags are GREAT. I had wanted to go with one of the more expensive grocery bags, but couldn't see spending the money. I bought these Chico bags and they hold more items than a regular shopping bag and never break!!! I constantly get asked where I got these and some grocery stores even give you money off your bill for using a reusable shopping bag. I love that I am making the environment a little better for my kids, but it also helps that the bags don't break as I carry them into my house and up a flight of stairs! Thanks to Reusablebags.com for getting them to me so quickly, now I know what I am going to buy for all my friends at Christmas!!!
I love using the ChicoBags! They hold a lot of items, and they're easy to fold back up into their pouch. I even bought a couple for my mom to use.
Extremely strong, can fit a LOT, also helps that they are in such cute colors! Am thinking of buying a whole slew of them for Xmas gifts this year, I can't think of anything more practical and environmentally conscious.
These bags are GREAT! I am amzed at how much they hold. I am thinking I might buy more. Today I spent over $100 at the grocery store and fit almost everything in the 4 bags I have.
I started using the bags immediatly after I recieved them. They are great for shopping or grabbing snacks to bring to the kid's games. I enjoy them so much that I hope to have my students do a fundraiser with them. Our classroom theme for the upcoming school year centers around creating a healthier environment. What a great way to fit these in! Renae Wisconsin
The bags are great...exact same size as the plastic ones they use in the grocery store, but much more durable (no more ripped bags on the way to the car!) and obviously more environment friendly! It's still an effort to remember to take them into the store, but practice makes perfect and I'm keeping at it. The grocery store baggers and checkers are still rather surprised at the reusable bags, but maybe the idea will be passed along to them and they'll start to use them too! :)
A little smaller than the ACME Workhorse bags. Folds down perfectly for the purse and glove box. Nice attached baggie for refolding. Cute colors!
I carried my coat in a chicobag to keep it clean while traveling. On the plane I put it in the overhead compartment. My husband ended up putting his leather jacket in with my coat to protect it in the overhead bin, and the bag held both. I kept one chicobag hooked to my purse and another in my husband's back pack. We lost one of the hooks with all the useage, however. Now I keep two in my car's glove compartment to take shopping to save on plastic bags. I intended to give 2 of the 4 I bought as gifts, but find I need all of them. It is nice and light, folds into itself making a pouch, has draw strings and a hook. Thanks for the nice product. S. Frank
These bags are great. My canvas bags used to spend a lot of time in the car. I always have these, so I use them not only at the grocery store, but at OSH, Macys, Walgreens and everywhere I would usually not be prepared with a reusable bag. So many people have commented on them that I ordered 10 extra to give away to anyone who I thought might use them.
I like my Chico Bags !!! I used them the next day at Whole Foods. The bagger and the checkout clerk were impressed. I was pleased with the quantity and the weight that they held. I really like the fact that they can clip to my keyring, a ring in my shoulder bag and my belt loop (when I'm not carrying a purse). I'm pleased with my color selection (Brown) 'cause it's discreet, almost like a grocery bag. My only problem is that the stitching at the side seam near the string gets a little stretched from stuffing the bag into it's sack. All in all, I'm happy with my Chico Bags.
I have several of these bags, and they have held up well under full loads of groceries. The first time I tried taking the bags out of their pouches it seemed cumbersome, but after the first or second time I used them it's been easy and quick to stuff them into and out of their pouches whenever I need them.
I think these bags are the greatest! They hold so much more than a regular plastic bag but you have to practically beg the store employees to put more in each bag. They almost want to give you a new plastic bag for every item you buy. These bags are so compact too; not too bulky to carry around with you to use whenever you need them. I got the dark green so my husband would be more likely to use them. He thinks they are great too!
I purchased 4 ChicoBags and tried them out. They worked so much better than the throw-aways that I ordered 8 more. No more double bagging the heavier items.
Love the bags! They fold up in their own, attached bag---very compact. The bags are also sturdy and roomy, fitting more than the average grocery store bag. I keep one clipped to my purse, and store the rest in my vehicle.
I love my little Chicobags!! I get a lot of compliments on them. I am 100% satisfied!
These bags are great!!!!! I can hook them together and put them on my belt loop. I was showing them to someone and they coyly remarked, "yeah but how fast can you get it back together" and I had it stuffed back in in under a minute. They hold a lot of food and I just feel happy using them. Plus I get 5 cents off per bag used at the store!!! I could not be happier.
I keep 2 Chico Bags in my purse. They are convenient and hold plenty. Clerks and other customers always want to know where I found such a cool product.
I have many different reusable bags, but these are so light and compact! I have plenty of room in my handbag to stuff three for my trips to the market and carry one with me at all times. Living and working in NYC means I often drop by shops on my way home...these bags are a life-saver (as well as a planet-saver) for such trips! Thanks so much!
LOVE them! They are sturdy and hold way more than a regular plastic bag. I also like the fact that they fold into themselves, into a convenient pouch. I keep one in my purse for trips to Target, CVS, etc. Would HIGHLY recommend and will probably be giving them out as holiday gifts!
Love the bags! Working on getting all my friends to buy them!
I love this bags compact size and durability. I keep two in my purse and two in my car's glove box. I was concerned that it would be difficult to pack back into the small duffel after use - not a problem at all. Excellent product!
Great bag - holds a good amount of groceries. I love how it folds up into itself and comes with its own carribener!
I love these bags! Very well made and strong. They really hold a lot of items. The stuff bag attatched to it is great. I have another reusable bag and it's stuff bag isn't attached, I tend to misplace it. So having it attached is great.
I love my chico reusable shopping bags. Keep them in my purse so I always have them. They are durable. Can load them to the top with groceries and the bag does not rip or tear. Because I am able to fill each bag to the top, there are less bags to carry into the house. I would say approximately 10 plastic bags full of groceries equals 2 chico bags full of groceries. They really have improved my shopping experience plus I am creating less waste. Also like calling myself a "pioneer woman" because I am the only person I know in my area using reusable shopping bags.
I absolutely love the bags. I keep one in my car and one in my purse - and I really love how strong they are - they hold quite a lot. And when in the pouch it is so light and small, it easily fits in even my smallest purse. I especially love the fact the pouch is attached, so I don't have to worry about losing it -- and it folds back into the pouch easily.
very nice i ordered some for all of my children and they use them for groceries and other things.
I love these bags! They're lightweight, strong, big, and a pretty color. They fit into their own little pocket and the clip makes them easy to bring along. I use them mainly for grocery shopping but also have one with me in my purse for other purchases.
We love these bags. The belt loop is especially handy when planning to shop on the way home from work. With a bag clipped to the purse or briefcase, there is no need to use a store bag because it's too far to go home to get the reusable ones. They also work good in a rain storm to protect the stuff that doesn't get covered under the umbrella.
The Chico Bags are great! I was so excited when I bought my first one that I ordered 12 more to give out to friends - in the hopes that they would buy 12 and spread them around also! Quick shipping - you guys are great!
I love the Chico bags. They are small enough to fit in my purse and glove compartment which makes them super convenient.
these bags are awesome so easy to fit in your purse and always have with you. My sister went shopping with me and saw them she had to take one of mine, because she loved them too. we will both be ordering more!!
Love the ChicoBag...compact, strong and cute. I ordered 10 and gave them as gifts. Great way to be green.
I ordered 4 of these bags and I love them! They are very durable and convenient. I especially like how easy they fold back into a little pouch after I use them. They are definitely a great product, and I will eventually buy more.
I HAVEN'T USED THE BAGS YET. I KEEP FORGETTING TO TAKE THEM TO THE STORE. I ALSO WONDER WHAT THE STORES REACTION WILL BE TO ME USING THEM. OTHERWISE, I LOVE THE COLOR, THEY ARE VERY COMPACT, AND I'M SURE THEY WILL WORK WELL.
They are fantastic! Very durable and compact. I keep one in my purse at all times! Thank you!
These little bags carry a big punch. I bought 5 and carry them with me in my car and purse. They hold more then all of those plactic bags from the store and even the store clerks like them because they can hang them from the same set up that the plastic bags use. I am going to buy some to give as gifts to all my green as well as not so green friends. Thanks
I love them, love them, love them !!!!! Bravo !! They are so convenient to carry that they are always with me.
I love these bags! They easily fit into the attached pouch and hold more groceries than plastic bags. I have taken them everywhere and asked clerks to use them instead of plastic bags.
I feel so good about using these bags. They really are as good as all the reviews and descriptions imply. I especially appreciate how lightweight but sturdy they are.
Our ChicoBags are extremely durable. We have already overloaded them with lots of sharp-cornered items and they handled it with ease. They hold a bit more than typical plastic bags and dry quickly after being filled with cold items that sweat. They don't hang on grocery bag stands as easily as I've seen mentioned - but once you get started filling them - they work fine. We keep them in the car and use them everywhere. We will buy more soon!
I purchased two of these (one for myself and one for my husband). I keep mine in my purse for quick trips to Target, etc. My husband keeps his in his glove compartment. The bags are very handy and easy to unfold/fold when waiting in line.
These bags are great! They hold so much more than I expected them to. Perfect for shopping - but also really great for the beach!
I received 2 ACME bags as a birthday gift. I loved them so much, I ordered 3 ACME bags for my daughter and her husband. They were so happy to get them. Never again will I forget to bring my own bags when I go shopping. They are so easy to carry.
These bags are amazing! Unfortunately, I live in an area where recycling and conservation are not highly valued. However, I have persuaded many of my friends and family to purchase the ChicoBag once they saw how compact they were and how much more you could fit in one bag. These are great!
I bought four of these, and before I could use them at the grocery store, I ended up using them as gift bags. They looked so cute, and everybody loved them!
I bought 2 of the ChicoBags. One for the purse and one for the diaper bag. Of course one of my girlfriends took one of mine b/c she loved it so much too. So now I'm down to one. So I'll need to get more. But I LOVE them. It's a great convience when you are running errands.
THESE ARE GREAT! This is my first experience with reuseable bags, and I can't stop thinking of different ways to use them. I will need a few more next winter to send with the kids for their winter gear. After a week of shoving snowpants, hats, mittens and snow boots in a grocery store plastic bag, I have to throw them away because they shred. One of these bags should last all winter season and into the next year! Now I just have to convince my husband not to be embarassed to use them at the stores he shops at. I whipped one out of my purse at Lowe's and he almost died. He will learn...right?
I love, love, love these bags! They fit perfectly in my purse, it's small, and they hold so much. I constantly get questions on where I got them. I've decided that everyone I know is getting one for birthdays and holidays.
I LOVE these bags, a must have! They are much sturdier and hold a lot more than I imagined. I keep them in my car so I always have them on hand. I match these with the cotton mesh produce bags when I go the the grocery store.
I love the colors they are offered in, I love the durability, I love the way the handles feel - they are most comfortable, not at all cutting to the hand, I love the material - it is light weight, durable, attractive, soil resistant, washable, fast drying, I love yhe size it reaches and folds into for storage and carrying to the store, and the price is excellent - a great bargain and incentive to invest in them (don't raise it, this is a big part of the products high integrity.) Ckerks at the grocery store ask me about the bags due to their attractiveness and quality. They inspire others to follow suit. My mother bought four and I bought four, in the same order, and she feels the same way, and has the same experience from the store clerks. So this survey is really two opinions. Someday perhaps grocey stores will offer them for sale, I just hope they do not take advantage and raise the price and ruin the integrity of the whole picture.
I bought five of these great bags as to avoid using bags at the market ever again. Not only to they fit lots of stuff, and support a lot of weight, but they are comfortable in my hands on the 3 flights of stairs up to my apartment!
I used these bags for the first time today and found them to be sooooo useful! I don't have a car and am walking for groceries. The bags fit well at the self check-out area and are more flexible than the tote bags I had been using up until now. I'm short and the tote bags (not one's from this site) were practically scraping the ground as I walked. These don't even come close to the ground. They are bigger though, than the average grocery store plastic bag. Between the two bags I purchased, and my backpack, I have no trouble getting a weeks worth of groceries home (I'm single, just buying for myself).
The Chico Bags are great! At first I was disappointed because they were very wrinkly and didn't appear as snazzy as in the pictures. However, after a machine wash (with some fab. softener) and dry, they looked fabulous. They seem, so far, every bit as durable as the Workhorse (another wonderful bag!) and the colors have gotten a lot of positive attention and queries both at the grocery store and at work. Many people ask me where I got them which gives me a great opportunity to "preach" the glories of reusable bags and your website. One negative: you don't offer very many color choices. Chico Bags come in many colors available from Greenfeet.com. I'd like to see your website offer them all. Great site and product. Thanks.
This is my second one! It is so light and convenient and folds up so easy. It is indispensable!
I LOVE these bags! They clip on to my purse, so I always have a couple of them handy, they weigh nothing, they hold a lot, they hang on to the platic bag dispenser handles at check-outs so cashiers don't have trouble filling them. Plus they are inexpensive and colorful! I'm going to get a bunch to use as gift wrapping....give 2 gifts in one and spread the BYOB lifestyle :)
I just got the ChicoBags I ordered, and they're great! They're even more compact than I expected, sturdy, and have great capacity for my groceries. I can fit all four in my purse and unfold one when I need it.
This bag is so great! I can use it for frozen items and it dries in seconds!
Loved, loved, loved the bags. Use them at the grocery store instead of their plastic ones. They work wonderfully.
My husband and I love these bags! I originally bought a few for a friend for Christmas who rides her bike everywhere. My thought was they would be easier for her to use than plastic bags hung over her handle bars. When my husband saw the four bags, he begged my to let him have two. He now carries them with him all of the time, and I see him use them for everything from groceries to lunch to just carrying paperwork back and forth to work. I of course had to buy a couple for myself. They are really strong, much more compact to carry around than canvas bags, and never escape comment from those around me at the grocery store.
I love my Chico bags! The handles are more comfortable than plastic for my walks from the market to my apartment (no car, I live in NYC). They are also great for hanging on my bike handlebars when I bring home heavier items because they don't hang too low and knock into my knees like standard plastic bags. I can't tell you how nice it is to no longer worry about grocery bags tearing and watching my lovely apples roll into dirty NY gutters. I will soon by buying more! ps: great stocking stuffers, no?
I love love love this little bag. Fits inside my purse (and I have a small purse!) so I always have it with me. Always get comments when unfold it from its little cocoon. 5 stars!
This bag is the best! Get your self some. Make the world BETTAH!
This is the little bag that could! When I first received my ChicoBags, I was a little skeptical - How could a shopping bag fit inside such a small pouch? Removing the bag from its pouch, I was surprised at how large it expanded! Not only is the bag available in my favority color (purple), but it wears like iron and hold a surprising amount of weight. The width of the handle makes it comfortable to carry even when fully loaded - Something I really appreciate. Great bag!
This is an amazing bag. I have used it to carry everything from books to groceries. I have been able to carry over 20 lbs. in this tough lil bag. The pouch is great too. We keep a few in all our cars.
I love that the bag fits in its own little bag and is very light. The clip is great so that I can attach the bag to my keys or my pants. I do with the handles were configured so one was on one side of the bag and the second handle on the other side (opens like a purse) instead of like a tank top style. I would like the ability to open it while still resting on my shoulder. I also think the bag could be a bit bigger. I love the bright orange peel color and the fact that it is made of recycled material.
I ordered a lot of these bags for work. I am glad they came in a variety of colors which I needed. My biggest complaint is I wish the clips on the side were on stronger. Also some of my bags are already showing wear and tear after few uses but overall great bags.
I love these bags. I especially love carrying the earth one into a store, it grabs attention quite well and gets people to ask about it. The only drawback I have is the size. The bags that stores are putting out there hold a bit more than these, but these are still perfect to carry things to work in, for quick trips to the store, and other random things. Definitely worth it, they remain in my vehicle always for that "just in case."
Overall good bag. Fits on the grocers carousal. I prefer acme recycled pet workhorse to the chico though.
These are great bags for carrying a variety of stuff, but not necessarily groceries. They are harder to use than the ACME bag as their opening is a bit restricting. But they hold a good bit and are light and compact.
I have about a dozen Chico Bags in many colors and love them a lot! They are perfect for lighter items, but I would steer clear of them for heavier items (i.e., avoid the gallon of milk). My only complaint is that the stitching on the handles is not "locked" into place very well and tends to unravel. This seems to be a systemic problem with this product as about half of my dozen bags have had the stitching start to unravel on the handles. Most of them I have reinforced and have been OK, but two of them were so bad that I contacted the Chico Bag company. Great product for going to the mall or for light items, but watch out for stitching unraveling on the handles. Better than other ultra compact bags because it is designed to stuff into its little sack and does not have to be precisely rolled up like some of the other brands.
These are great. The clip to hook them to your belt is a little cheaply made but I just carry them in hand into the store then toss them in the cart or basket while I shop. So far they are strong and easy to use. They easily bundle up to fit in your glovebox so they're there when you need them (just remember to put them back in the car after you unload your groceries). My only complaint is that I'd hoped they hold a little bit more in each bag. You can fit just a hair more in one of these than a standard plastic bag.
I have 5 of the Chico Bags that fold into themselves. I love that I can keep all of them in my purse so I always have them when I go shopping. However, I am finding that the stitching in the handles seems to be coming undone. I use the bags when I shop for clothes or misc. items. Sometimes for a quick stop at the grocery store. Nothing terribly heavy. I don't think my orange bag handle will last much longer and I've probably had that one about 6 months.
I love this bag the only minor draw back about it is that it takes a while to get the hang of wrapping into & out of its self pouch.
I love my new bags! The little carbeaners are so great for hooking them onto my purse strap, or my belt loop. I think the size is just the right size for any type of shopping. The only concern I have is after using one of the bags, the seam that connects in the middle of the handle is coming apart already. This should never happen, especially this soon. So, whoever is doing your quality control should take a look at those seams.
The Chico Bags are really useful and easy to carry. They're compact, rolling up into their own built-in bag, and I always have at least three with me. They aren't quite as large as I had hoped for (I have a kids EnviroSax bag which holds larger items and greater volume, and I notice some pulling on the stitching when I use these ChicoBags for groceries. They're useful for now, but I'd like to see how they hold up over time. Overall they're quite good, handy goes a long way toward always having them along.
This bag wasn't what I expected, although I still like them. They aren't as big as I thought they would be. I was going to order several for grocery shopping and I'm glad I didn't. I have a couple I keep in my diaper bag for general use, which is what I would recommend them for. Not for grocery shopping. I love how small they fold up and fit nicely in my bag!
I love it . . . my favorite among three different ones I purchased. However, I was only able to actually use it once because the clip, which I thought was a WONDERFUL idea, came unclipped from my purse and I lost it.
These bags are very convienent to carry around in my purse. I had a problem of forgetting to bring my other bags but now I have at least one with me at all times. The only aspect I would change is for the bag to have longer handles.
I bought a few of the chico bags in blue. They are a good size and fell pretty sturdy. I like that they fold back into themselves. The only thing I do not care for is the opening. Even though the bag is comparable to the plastic in size, when the arms are pulled apart, the top opening is a bit smaller than I would like. Other than that, it a very good product.
Good bags. Not as nice as the Workhorse bags but still really nice. I've used them at the grocery store and as a tote too. They don't fold up as well as the Workhorse bags so I usually just stuff them into their little pouches. I love how the pouch is attached (I know I'd lose it in about 2 seconds otherwise) and they're sturdy too.
Construction is good and they fold up nicely into their little pouch. I got it for non-food shopping and I haven't used it much since it is yet another thing to tuck into my purse -- though not the fault of the product.
Very handy, well constructed and sturdy. Have shared these with family and friends and they all love the portability. Even my husband now carries one. I like the color selection too. My only wish is to see them made in the USA.
This is a great portable bag. I live in manhattan and am always walking around. I find I use it everyday and it fits inside my little purse without adding weight or bulk. I've given it 4 instead of 5 stars b/c of the appearance. It's *very* wrinkled when you use it, even when it's full, and I would prefer not to have a logo on it. Other than that it's great.
These bags are great. They are small and light enough to fit in your glove compartment or in your purse. I love the fact that the bag folds into itself - there is no possibility of losing the holder. A MUST BUY!
Overall quite good. One of the bags arrived with half of the stitching falling out, but still worked fine for most tasks. They do get a difficult look from the supermarket baggers as "stiffer" bags are easier for them to handle. They are quite good for other bagging situations and self checkouts.
I was surprised at how small the bags are when folded, but how much they carry. It is a great way to learn to carry a bag with you. Love the earth picture!! There were some small tears in the seams, as long as they don't get bigger, it will be okay. Nina
nice colors. easy to use. wish the bag were a bit bigger. wish the mini carabiner was gone and the loop a bit bigger (big enough for a "climbing carabiner").
I purchased one of these for my mother-in-law for part of her bday present. She abosolutley loves it! It came in handy at IKEA when we got to the checkout and realized that it is now either byob or pay for theirs. I think she felt fantastic knowing that she had such a handy gift.
I got two chico bags for Christmas and loved them. They hold so much and are easy to carry. So I ordered more!
excellent product; wish the buy four get free shipping deal could apply to various colors of the same model.
I gave these bags away as Christmas presents and they were a hit. Everyone thought the stuff pouch was a great feature so that the bags won't unravel in a purse or car. Keep in mind that these bags are about the same size or a tad smaller than a regular plastic shopping bag. I found them to be a bit smaller than I expected when I opened them for the first time.
I love 'em! Not as sturdy as the black, ACME (?) bags, but the color makes up for it
This Christmas I decided to get everyone in my family a reusable bag...
I am very happy with the quality of the product. However, I was disappointed that I did not receive all the colors I ordered. The burgendy color did not arrive rather more black. It would have been nice to have been given the option to choose a different color. I also requested a free chicobag with your promotion award but did not receive it. Maybe you ran out of those handouts?
Awesome, thank you! I handed these bags out at Thanksgiving to each of my guests and asked them to spread the word!
Cute, and easy to carry in your purse. It is a little small for regular shopping, so it makes a good "back-up" bag.
bags are fine, but could be a bit larger. I have been using grocery canvas bags and it takes my 5 grocery bags to fill a week. I bought 5 bags of yours and the grocer needed to use at least 3 of their plastic bags in addition to my 5 reusable bags. I went to your bags as they are lighter.
Love the Chico bag & how it fits neatly into a tiny little container. My only complaint is that the bottom has a single seam, so it doesn't have as much volume capacity as I thought it would. Next time I may try a different bag that has a bit more of a squared bottom.
The chico bags are great for grocery shopping, etc where you don't mind pulling out a completely wrinkled bag. They are sturdy and hold as much as a normal grocery bag. The attached pouch that bag can fold up into is genius. I always keep one in my purse, and I use it almost daily! Warning - the navy is more of a royal blue in case that is the color you were looking for. Still a great color, though. Every time I use one of these bags and I feel really good about not polluting the environment with all of those nasty plastic bags!
These are great bags, when you first get them you will find they are VERY wrinkled but after we washed them and threw them in the drier they were fine! A little bit smaller then I was expecting probubly about the same size as your average plastic grocery shopping bag. It's nice how they all fold into themselves and come with a keyring for good storage.
These bags are quite small when packed (I keep 2 in my medium sized purse) and come in a great variety of colors. I only use these when I forget my other shopping bags, but one of them has a small seam rip at the top already (used maybe half a dozen times). For a few dollars, though, they are great for stashing places in case you forget your more rugged shopping bags.
I had a hard time deciding between these and the acme workhorse bags, so i got some of each. I think the acme workhorse bags win. The fabric feels much nicer, they pack up smaller, they hold more, and they fit in the bag holders at the cashier. That being said the chico bags are still nice, so it depends on how much you want to spend. I think the acme workhorse bags are worth the extra money.
I *love* these bags -- I use one almost every day. I have purple and lime, and the purple is a bit better about not showing day-to-day grunge between washes. My only complaint is that the clip on two my bags was faulty (which is one of the reasons I love them -- the clip allows me to connect to my bag or keyring). I've given several to a friend, and plan on buying more to give as Christmas gifts. Great product, great value.
The bags can be conveniently tucked into your purse, backpack, briefcas, whatever! The colors are great and easy to find when tucked away. A little wrinkly - but so are we!
Over all I like the bag. One has not held up well, but the other 3 have been great
This is a good bag. I like that it comes in different colors. I bought them to give away. I'm trying to convert as many people as possible to my "no more plastic bags" effort.
I have 8 of these bags (I went a little crazy!) and 4 of the Workhorse 1500 bags. I have had he 1500's longer and absolutely love them. The Chico bags are great but they don't feel quite as good to me as the 1500. I would be 100% over the top on the 1500 if it came in the colors of the Chico bag. When I come back for more after losing or giving away all of these I am not sure which ones I will buy (the color really is that important to me!) All in all... they are great bags!
The Chico bags are so light and compact. The self-containing pocket is great. I've stashed one in my car, one in the office, and the rest are for the grocery store. Environmental correctness is easy when the products are so efficient and pleasant to use.
I haven't used these myself, but bought 4 as gifts for Earth Day. I bought some of the ACME Workhorse 1500 bags at the same time. I prefer the color options of the Chico, and the clip is a very nice feature. The price is nice, too, if you're not sure you want to invest a lot yet. However, for myself, I chose the Workhorse 1500 because they are more compact when folded up. I store these in my purse, the diaper bag & in the car, so I'm never without one, so the smaller, the better.
I purchased these bags as a give away for my staff at our retreat. I wanted to put water bottles and other items in the bag. When I took the bags out of their pouch, they were so wrinkled that I had to iron them. I hung them up for a long time but wrinkles didn't disappear. I assume the wrinkles eventually come out after you use it for awhile. I'm sure they are fine shopping bags but I like the envirosax much better - prettier too.
Good construction and nice for small trips to the store. The bags are much smaller than I had thought they would be. These are a little difficult to pack because of the way the handles and bag are one piece of fabric, with no give or stretch. Next purchase I make will be for canvas or cotton bags with regular strap handles.
love the concept - love the bags only one complaint - one of the bags I ordered - the seam is coming undone
I thought the bags were cute. I got them for my daughter-in-law to use when she goes out with her new baby. I found them to be a bit hard to use. Being stuffed inside of themselves made it difficult to get them out and to get them stuffed back into themselves was next to impossible. With a baby around, it was extra worrysome, as you need both hands to get the bags ready to use. I went to the local grocery store and bought theirs for 1.99 ea and they fold flat and are ready to use at once, with one hand, and they don't take up much space, and one bag can carry the others, and when you are done, they don't have to be cramed back into themselves. Yes, you could leave yours unfolded, but because they don't fold flat, they take up even more space. Nice idea, just a wrong application for what I thought they would be.
I purchased several of these and used them to wrap christmas presents in. They worked great for colorful reusable packaging. I kept one for myself and I really enjoy using it. I really like that it folds up into its self for storage. It fits easily in my purse and I use it often for those times when I just need one bag. There are two draw backs to the bag. It is a little small and the straps are not long enough carry the bag on your shoulder. Overall the chico bag is a good investment for the price.
More cheaply made than the reisenthol mini maxi shopper, but fits nicely in the storage pouch. Doesn't seem as durable, but you can't beat the price.
I have a couple Chico Bags and while some are great, one has had to be resewn twice and is up for more repairs. The original stitching was inconsistant or missing when I received it. Just check your seams first and make sure it was constructed properly in the first place before using it.
I really like the look, convenience, and size of the Chico bags. I ordered about 8 of them and use them for all kinds of things. The checkers at the grocery always remark about how neat they are. Lately, however, I have noticed several of my bags coming loose at the seams, and I even had one rip open when it caught my camper door (to be fair, though, my heavy cotton pants ripped on the door, too!). Since the price is so great, they are perfect for an extra reusable bag, but for really sturdy grocery bags, I think I'll buy something more heavy duty next time.
nice items. Great pricing. A little lengthy on the shipping. I ordered these items at least 2 weeks prior to a birthday and the items were received 4 weeks. No way of tracking the items. That would be quite helpful for future purchases. Thank you.
Love the color choices. Folds up small enough to always keep one in my purse. Bag itself is a little small, good only for occasional use.
I love this bag but was disappointed when soon after getting it the clip that attaches it to my keyring broke. The hinge mechanism just quit after a couple of uses. Now it's not as useful because it has to be in a purse or pocket instead of on my keys.
I really love the bag, and the idea of the bag, but unfortunately it looks like the seam is beginning to loosen. Granted, it still might stay together, but after only five or so uses, I am surprised at the wear and tear it looks like it has already suffered.
I was not very impressed with the product. When the product is placed into the pouch it is very wrinkled and not very useful. I plan to return the product.
I purchased one Chico Bag and one Workhorse, and the Workhorse left the Chico Bag in the dust. The Chico Bag comes out of the pouch in a rather crinkly, unruly manner, and stuffs a bit larger than the workhorse so I don't keep it in my purse. I would be interested in trying out a Reisenthel - Mini Maxi Shopper, Long Handle if I was looking for a colorful bag again. Otherwise, the Workhorse is a better fit for me.
This is my least favorite of all the bags I've tried (my favorite is the ACME mesh bag), but it is good. The fabric is sturdy, the colors are cool, but it lacks the flexibility of the ACME mesh bag, and isn't as easy on your hands as the ACME mesh bag when carrying a big load. The colors are cool and that helps as you stand in line and dig in a bag for one of these compact bags - you can see them in a dark purse. So, this is a fine bag, but I love the ACME mesh bags and will stick with those.
good bag but there are better ones with the bag cover attached
I bought my boyfriend a ChicoBag last Christmas. It's had some heavy use - transporting shoes, groceries, books, lunches, etc. - and the stitching at the bottom is starting to pull out. I wouldn't expect to carry more than 25#, but I was hoping for a more durable product. This time I'm going with ACME bags.
I bought one of those without reading carefully, and it is made from polyester! What is the point? You should not make the same mistake as me and stick with a cotton bag. Sure, this one folds up into a ball, but that slight amount of convenience is no excuse, and neither was my lack of reading.
I love the design of this bag. It folds into a small pouch and hooks up to my purse easily with the clip.On the downside,the bag is smaller than I expected. Also the quality seems very questionable; the bottom started to deteriorate after just a couple trips to the supermarket of light use. The Envirosax bag and the dual-handle string bag I purchased at the same time have much better build quality.
I really like the idea of Chico bags; I also like the little storage bag and clip, and I love the colors (especially the purple). However, the handles could be longer (they aren't long enough to put over my shoulder) and the bags themselves are not quite up to the intended job. The seam stitching isn't up to the 20-pound limit, in my opinion, and the fabric isn't as sturdy as I'd hoped for. I've had three Chico bags in the past year. The first one was replaced (by the company) in less than a year when the seam gave out, even though I'd never had anything heavier than a gallon of milk in it, which is far under the stated 20-pound weight limit. The second bag had a hole rubbed in it after the first time I used it, and the third one was torn somehow, also very quickly. The bottom seam on both of them are starting to show signs of giving way, after only a few months of light use. Even carrying books in them leaves little thin spots, almost holes, in the fabric where the book corners hit. In short, I'd use them only for light-weight groceries with no corners - bread, smaller fruits and vegetables, etc. - or for shopping at non-grocery stores. Anything with corners will leave a little dent/hole in the fabric. The company does have a one-year warranty, but if they would improve their seam technique, the bags would probably be more durable.
I ordered several ChicoBags and my opinion of them is sort of "meh." I think that they work well for lighter-weight items. But after only one use at the grocery store, several of them looked worn in places and one even had a hold in it from what I think may have been the corner of a cereal box. I realize that cereal box corners are pointy, but a reusable bag advertised for grocery store use should be able to take that kind of cereal box abuse - especially after only one trip. And no, they weren't too overloaded. I take my ChicoBags to places like Target and to the drug store where the items tend not to be as heavy as some grocery store products - like gallons of milk and containers of laundry detergent - which I think may be too heavy for them. In my experience, ChicoBags simply don't reliably stand up to grocery store use. In hindsight, I should have purchased canvas grocery store totes as they would probably have been more durable. Too bad canvas totes don't fold up into a teeny tiny package like these Chico bags. ChicoBags get an "A" for cuteness but a "C-" for usefulness in my book.
A friend gave me a Chico bag a couple of years ago before I moved to Reno. I loved and used it all the time. Green friends were always attracted and would ask where can I get one? I travel to Quincy a couple of times a year and I buy them at the Quincy Natural Foods. 5 for the price of 4. And then I give them away. I bought out Quincy's supply at Christmas and needed more so I went to your web site and had to buy 5 for the price of 5. Now most people will buy one or two bags I have purchased around 25 of these bags-so I felt that I deserved the 4 for 5 price. When I asked about the offer while making an online purchase they said the offer was not happening at this time. I really thought that was bad PR. It's not the money. That experience took away the good feeling I had about being green and sharing it.
