No problems with the metal supports
Well, i really wanted these for my laundry room so i took a chance and ordered three hoping that a company like Lands End would fix a problem like others had described with the metal supports being too long. I ordered a red, yellow, and blue and all of the supports worked fine. I had a little trouble with one getting stuck in a seam, but I took a skewer and stuck it down in the hole and it went in no problem so I just worked a little harder to get the metal rod in and it went.
I LOVE these-- they are the perfect size for a good sized load of laundry without being too heavy when full. AND my kids know what item goes in which one because of the color coding (I didn't monogram so i could move them around and repurpose them easily).
HIGHLY recommend! I think i'll get one more...

Great Hamper but....
The holes to insert the rods are to far up in the corners; it is very difficult to insert them. We had to use a scissors to open up the last hole to get the rod in. The rods were the right size and we were able to get them all the way in once we could get it in the hole. Please improve this - it is a great product and looks great in our beach house!

This is exactly what I wanted. It is well made and LE has done it again. The only draw back was putting it together. There are four rods that have to be placed into the canvas. But a minor draw back. I highly recommend.

pretty good but needs tweaking
While I agree with other reviews that it is sturdy and pretty good sized, when we inserted the metal rods it was not "square" - was somewhat twisted. Things that are visibly off-angle have always annoyed me. Not sure how there could be any room for error on our part since the pockets for the rods are very tight fitting.

I love the quallity of this product it's just like the signature tote bag BUT
I had to return it. The rods to insert to give it support were about an inch too long. otherwise i would have kept it.

Ordered the Minute I Saw It
I fell in love with this the moment I saw it in the catalog and ordered it immediately! I agree with the other review that the metal rods don't go all the way inside. After MUCH effort, my husband pounded them in there with a mallet and they finally went down enough to close the velcro tab. Other than that, it's great and I'm ordering another so we can separate loads! The quality is very thick and durable and I know it will last.

I've waited for a canvas laundry tote!
I just received the laundry hampers; I ordered two. They are roomier than I expected and very sturdy. They will hold at least two loads each. There is one problem with the design. The metal rods which are supposed to be inserted into the corners will NOT go down far enough, about an inch too long. That makes it impossible to secure the hook and loop tab. But since I have many many of the canvas totes, I know that it will stand up on its own without the metal supports. I just left them out. The hampers have a nice nautical look. Please make more colors! And make the bottom and top support rings removable so they can go in the washer.
