Comments about Product:I use this bag exclusively as luggage! I have a small space,and always hated how 1/2 of my small closet was filled with a gigantic suitcase. This bag is so lightweight, it doesn't add any extra weight to my packing; so small when packed, I can put it IN my purse; so big when opened, I can fit everything inside and still have room! It also meets online flight restrictions for carry ons,is incredibly durable and looks very stylish. Mine still looks brand new and I've had this bag for over 3 years! Everyone that sees me with it is utterly amazed at how light, durable and compact this is. I also have the mini maxi with the long handles, and use it for short trips and as a commuter bag. Excellent company with excellent products!
Comments about Product:Used this bag on vacation as a beach bag. Very handy since it packs up very small and was big enough to hold our beach towels and everything else. Would highly recommend this bag.
Comments about Product:I own two of these bags! And love giving them as a gift and filling them with goodies. I use this as my "hospital bag" - I have alot of medical problems so I always have this bag packed and ready to go. It holds so much! No construction weaknesses that I have experienced.
Comments about Product:Yep, it's huge and amazingly lightweight. It folds into the unbelieveably compact pouch, great handles, great system. Miss the clip option for the pouch, but I clipped it on the zipper, or tuck it inside. Perfect for travelling - extra carryon, last minute rearranging of overweight bags for the airport check in, etc.
Comments about Product:Reisenthal really knows how to do packable bags. This one is amazing capacious, and yet folds easily into its sleeve. I have one in each car for big shopping, and also often use it for toting packages to the Post Office. The straps are nice and long, and I like the velcro handle wrap and the small outside pocket. I wish there were a clip to attach the sleeve like some of the other Reisenthal bags have.
Comments about Product:I use mine for carry-on luggage when I fly. Unlike regular luggage, the bag does not add weight to your load. It holds all I need for a week and will fit under the seat if the overhead bins are full. I would recommend this for anyone carrying large or heavy items.
Comments about Product:This strong bag is very versatile. When stuffed, it's about the size of a carry-on bag and I've used it for that; holds a lot and can be easily shoved under the seat in front. I've also used it to carry groceries and for lugging dirty laundry to the machines. It really carries a great deal and is seems to be very durable.

Comments about Product:The purchase has arrived and looks to be exactly the type of bag I was looking for to use on family travels. I wanted something that folds up very small to throw into a suitcase so that if I shop at my travel destination (or when my child's stuff mysteriously expands in volume) I can easily whip out the bag to use as a second piece of luggage on the way home. I haven't traveled with the bag yet, but I like the quality of the fabric and of the construction.
Comments about Product:I LOVE this bag! It fits so much in it, and is really sturdy and strong. I take it to the grocery store, mall, farmer's market... everywhere. It is so much easier carrying this bag rather than 4 small bags.
5.0 This is a great bag if you doing lots of shopping
Comments about Product:This is a great bag if you doing lots of shopping for bulky items (clothin g etc.). I've used it nurmerous times and it's going strong. The handles are nice and long so it goes over the shoulders even with heavy clothing.
5.0 I decided to purchase these bags because I was goi
Comments about Product:I decided to purchase these bags because I was going abroad for several months, and I wanted something larger than the cheaper, thick plastic bags that I can obtain here for a fraction of the cost. I received the bags right away, thanks to the fast shipping, and when I arrived at my destination, I immediately starting using them. Most importantly, I like the size - there´s plenty of room to fit all sort of shopping stuff, and because they´re so sturdy, I´m not worried about them ripping as with the other, cheaper bags. I love, too, that the carrying handles are comfortable and fit over my shoulder. Finally, the color is nice . . . and they come in these nice pouches. What more do you want? Mr. Happy
5.0 I've used this bag many times on trips between NYC
Comments about Product:I've used this bag many times on trips between NYC & Europe, checking it to accomodate overflow from regular luggage and just folding it up and packing it inside on other trips. Very sturdy, even when checked through with regular luggage, and so easy to pack away when not needed. I've since purchased several more for friends & relatives. Best bag of this type I've ever found because it holds a lot of stuff (more than you'd think from looking at it) and then repacks very small.
Comments about Product:I LOVE these bags. I bought seevral. We mainly use them as luggage - yup - luggage. Not sure how well they hold up on plane travel if you are checking baggage but we travel mostly by car and they are great. I don't have a lot of storgae space to store suitcases and they fold so small that they take no storage space whne not in use but are plenty big to carry a full week's clothing for a trip. Going longer - pack two. I have one for myself and each member of our family for each trip and then we pack an extra one for any extras we pick up. These are very sturdy and if they get dirty you just wash them. I use their smaller bag - I think it is called the Mini-Maxi for our toiletries.
Comments about Product:I love these bags. They are beautiful, lightweight and easy to use. While I originally bought two to use for groceries I ended up using one for packing and carrying some craft items. So I just bought two more! one again to use for groceries and the other to pack up my sweaters and scarves and whatever. These are my lugage. They make great travel bags and if I ever decide to move I am sure I could find 101 things to pack up in these. They are well constructed of a strong nylon which is coated on the inside with a clear sealant which makes clean-up a cinch. The long handles are a plus. Bag is durable and strong enough to hold canned goods as well. Zip it up and food is protected. Easy to store and stash.
Comments about Product:This bag is the greatest! It fits in my purse until I need it and then opens up to a HUGE bag. I was able to carry 3 shoe boxes, 3 long dresses, a few shirts, and some jewelry and there was still room for more.
Comments about Product:This bag is fantastic, and very strong. I subjected it to a LOT of wear and tear recently during a month-long trip to Africa, and it doesn't even look like I've used it yet! My traveling companion was joking that it was like a Mary Poppins carpet bag where I could fit everything into it. I highly recommend this as something you tuck into another suitcase if you're traveling and think you might need an extra bag to bring back souvenirs. It meets the standards for a carry-on bag, and I could also fit it under the seat on the plane.

Comments about Product:I have used a huge variety of reusable bags, but this one takes the cake. Its made to last, and really, is unbelievably huge when it unfolds. I plan on buying them for everyone I know during the holidays.

Comments about Product:I purchsed two of these bags and take them to the mall with me. I decline shopping bags at every store and simply put the items I purchase in these very roomy easy carry over the shoulder sraps. My husband hated throwing away shopping bags that we couldn't be recclycle and I love them.

Comments about Product:LOVE the mini bags-especially to fold up in a tiny pouch and carry in my purse. I ordered 6 and gave 4 away. I have a small clip in my purse to clip the bags on, so I can have them handy every time. Lots of room for everything!!
5.0 I bought this bag a few months ago, and I love it
Comments about Product:I bought this bag a few months ago, and I love it. Here's how I handle my groceries: Eggs, bread and other squishable food goes in my Acme Workhorse and the rest gets zipped up in the Mini Maxi. Tah-dah! About 20+ grocery bags not used. It can hold so much, you will be amazed. Since it zips up, you can fill it to the top without worrying about it spilling out. The fabric and seams are strong and can hold it in.
5.0 I purchased the bags as gifts and both receiptient
Comments about Product:I purchased the bags as gifts and both receiptients seemed pleased and have been observed using the bags. My daughter especially like the compact size when not in use, easily stowed in her diaper bag/backpack.
5.0 The bag is great, but I wish the straps were a lit
Comments about Product:The bag is great, but I wish the straps were a little bit shorter. I don't use it over the shoulder, and I had to tie the straps in order to shorten them, otherwise the bag dragged on the ground. Is there another one that has shorter straps but that also has a zipper? I could find only without zipper. But, the bag is still great. Thank you.
Comments about Product:This is a great bag - I take it everywhere. It fits a ton and carries nicely and easily over your shoulder. Perfect for travel also - throw it in the suitcase where it takes up no room and have an extra carry on for the way home! It's great.
5.0 This bag was larger than I expected from the photo
Comments about Product:This bag was larger than I expected from the photo (a good thing!) and fits several plastic bags worth of groceries. It's easy and comfortable to carry over your shoulder through the crowded subway and around NYC, and I've already saved 6 plastic bags from being wasted this week!
Comments about Product:I'm glad I ordered the Mini Maxi Hauler. It's larger and more durable than I imagined it would be. I keep mine in the car and use it for clothes shopping since it holds quite a bit and also fits over-the-shoulder for easy carrying. It's also perfect for tossing in your luggage to use for those extra items you purchase when you travel.
Comments about Product:I love this bag! It opens up to a really nice size. I used it when I went grocery shopping the other day and it was great. I live in NYC, so I walk everywhere and when I use it to run errands with, it's easy to throw in my purse when I'm done and I don't have to think about it. It's also nice that it has a hook on it when it's all folded up, so I can attach it to my purse if I don't have room.
Comments about Product:Love this bag. It's strong and holds alot. My use is picking up alterations and have been searching for a bag like this. i will buy a few more now that I have seen it proform. Thanks

Comments about Product:I actually sent the bags to my elderly aunt & 2 cousins in Washington, DC. as a thank you gift. From all accounts they were received in a very timely manner and they were extremely hsppy with them. Thank you for your service. Judy Woodman

Comments about Product:I bought two of these for shopping at the mall and I keep them in my car. I just throw one or both in my purse and I'm prepared. You wouldn't believe all of the clothing items I've been able to carry comfortably over my shoulder in one bag! With these shopping bags I am complete. I have canvas grocery bags, muslin produce bags, canvas lunch bags, and wrap and mats. I am determined for my home to be totally free of plastic bags. I plan to provide family members with your products this holiday season. Keep up the good product design.
Comments about Product:I loved the bags. It is amazing how much they hold and I feel like I am being proactive about reducing my plastic bag usage. I always recycled my bags but this is much better. Now if I could just convince the bag person at my local, mainstream grocery store that it is a good thing.... The bags held so much they complained about lifting it, (course they normally put only 4 items in a plastic bag).... :)

Comments about Product:This bag is a great thing to have on hand when I go clothes shopping. I was tired of accumulating all of the bags from clothing stores, so I bought this one that could easily fit into my purse. It is easy to pull out of its little carrying case and is surprisingly large.
5.0 I can't tell you how excited I was to find your we
Comments about Product:I can't tell you how excited I was to find your website so that I could order Reisenthel Mini Maxi Hauler. I already had two of these bags but wanted a few more--one to carry in my car and one for a friend of mine as a gift. These bags are aewsome and I use them all the time. I leave one in my suitcase at all times. They are truly wonderful and useful and now I know where I can get more if I need them. Thanks again.
Comments about Product:I bought one of these bags. Love it as a carry on travel bag. It has become the only bag I use when I travel - well I take a couple other Reisenthel bags a blue long handled mini-maxi shopper as a beach bag/shopping tote and a short handled - organge one that's my normal grocery bag. I use these bags daily. They've been fine. The only change I would like to see the company make is to add an extra set of short handles on this hauler bag, because there are times when I have to take it off my shoulder to carry it - like down the airplane isle and it's rather akward with the long handles. (is Reisenthel listening? I hope) Now if we could only get these in Organic Hemp or Cotton or if we KNEW that they really were recycled fabric or made from old soda bottles... hey they work so good and my friends all want them as gifts this year!

Comments about Product:I bought this bag for grocery shopping and i was very please till the second time i used it. This bag may be big but it isn't very strong. After i unpacked it i noticed a small tear at one of the seams. The heaviest thing i ever put in this was a container of soy milk along with other assorted (light!) groceries. It would have been a great bag, if it were made better.
5.0 I bought this bag to use as a carry-all / gym bag
Comments about Product:I bought this bag to use as a carry-all / gym bag. I got tired of carrying separate bags to the office: purse, reusable lunch bag, gym bag, & laptop bag. I'm very pleased to say that I carry everything in this bag now. (Except the laptop, and it would fit, if needed.) I have been desperate to find the perfect bag, at a decent price, for years. I've tried assorted bags & found that they just weren't big enough, not a manageable size or price, or they ripped from the weight. This bag does the job wonderfully, with room to spare! Not only did it feel good to purchase from such an innovative company, but the price is Great! It's extremely light but strong, and it's not too long/bulky as to knock people down when walking through the halls. I like the long straps & double zippers. They make it easy to get in & out of the bag without separating the Velcro on the handle. Very convenient as I'm in & out of it all day. Very happy that I found this product & your company.
