V27545 - Set of 2 Thermost Insulated Carry All Tote Bags
Coming back for more!
I use these bags mostly for groceries instead of those re-usable paper- like bags they sell for a dollar at the checkout. Holds ALOT and very durable and comfortable to carry. They sit flat in my trunk and I don't have to worry about items spillling out of the top because they zip. I put my list and/or coupons in the front pocket.
I have also used them to carry snacks, fruit, water, paper towels & hand sanitizer for the kids to the ballpark.
Almost every time I am at the check out, the cashier or another customer wants to know where I got them.
Got these bags to use as grocery bags. Like them. Used them to take food for our week at the beach. I did put a small ice pack in each one and food was nice and cold upon arrival at beach house. They are great to take food on the beach too! A small ice pack kept our sandwiches, cheese sticks, water and juice boxes nice and cold. Soft bags were a lot nicer than hard ice chests. I have the green ones and they are nice looking too.
Not The Greatest
I have to say, I was disappointed in the quality of these bags. One of the totes was very puckered at the bottom seam. It looked bad and the seam seemed unreliable. I was not impressed by how well they kept my items cold and they are not leak resistant. The plus side is they are a cute style and a nice size. I just received Racheal Ray's TSV tote and I can definately see the difference in quality. I will be returning these:(
Food does not stay cold for long :(
I bought these because I frequently food shop on the way home from my daughters--one hour away. The only way I can keep things from thawing is to have the grocery store still put the cold items in a paper bag then put the filled bag in the carrier. More effort than I planned on. I will keep them because the size is large. The insulation needs to be thicker.
I bought these with the hopes of using it to carry my bottled waters and salad/lunch to work. There is plenty of room BUT they do not keep items cold. Its a great little tote for carrying food. However, if you want to keep something cold you will need to use freezer packs with it otherwise your food will be warm within a few hours.
Not So Cool Tote Bags
I ordered these totes to transport my cold foods from the grocery store-I knew they wouldnt be the same as a cooler so i wasnt expecting the same performance.
However, the first day i used 1 of the bags, I put the 5items in the bag at the grocery, tried to zip it closed while still in the grocery store, and the zipper pull
broke off! How disappointing!
I love the color and size, but I got my mine to keep things cold and they don't. Might as well just throw my drinks in the car seat. I have packed with several frozen packs but in just a few hours the ice packs are thawed and the drinks are warm. Won't send it back, but will be looking for something else to meet my needs.
Nice size bag
I received my bags today in pink. I like the size. I recently took a road trip to Florida and these would have really come in handy to hold the snacks...nice size. Our other bags were either too big or too small. When I opened the bags it struck me that maybe the handles seemed shorter than I remembered from watching the show. I rewatched the video and noticed that the pink bag with the sunglasses has longer handles than the other pink bag. At this point I don't know if it would be better to have longer handles or not. The bags also have a strong smell that I hope will fade. I'm not giving the bags 5 stars yet because I haven't used them yet.
I've had other bags like these but these are the best. I took a bag of ice into work and put it in this bag. After 4 hours I took out the bag to drain out the water that had melted. Imagine my surprise when the ice was just as it was 4 hours ago. No melting whatsoever. So these are definately a keeper. Looks good too. You won't be sorry.
This is the best! I purchased this in pink to carry my breakfast and lunch to work every day. I freeze 3 bottles of water and that keeps this bag cold all day. I am in my office for 9.5 hours and by the time I get to the 3rd bottle of water it still has ice in it. I also love the fact that I can now be a little more fasionable with my lunch tote instead of the one I purchased at a big box store that is more suited for a construction worker.
These are so practical as well as attractive to carry. "Going green" never looked so good. So far I have used them to keep cold foods cold and they do keep food cold!
