Small and Extra Small Storage Totes
I purchased two of the Storage Totes in Natural and Chocolate Brown for my trunk. The extra-small size (square) is for my emergency gear: flashlight/batteries; Swiss Army knife and whistle, first aid kit; RC crank radio, t.p., etc. The small size (rectangular) is for my picnic stuff: paper plates, paper towel; k/f/s, etc. I keep it stocked with the basics then add food before I go out of town. The quality is excellent and they're very attractive. They're flexible and don't slide around the trunk. The short handles work fine for my purposes. I can move them easily, but don't plan to carry them for any distance. I'm considering giving the extra-small size (it's bigger than you'd think!) for Christmas gifts filled with wrapped quick breads and goodies. They're great organizers!

Love my large Canvas Storage
I purchased the large and had it monogrammed with "Blankets" like the one in the pic. We keep several blankets & afghans in our den that we like to get comfy while watching movies. I was tired of having them stacked up in the floor or on one end of the couch. I have the Lands End canvas tote, so when I saw the picture for the canvas storage - I thought great idea! It expands to a good size & holds at least 6 of our blankets. Definitely a good purchase & works great for how I intended.

Sturdy, Nice Looking and Easy to Assemble
I really like this product. It is all the things it is purported to be. To set it up, I used a long phillips-head screw driver to open up the holes. I didn't have to use any tool to "hammer in" the support bars. Works like a charm. Looks good and does the job I wanted it for...a dirty clothes basket.

Love it. Great for carrying all my shopping into the house from the garage in one trip. It will also make a great beach towel bag, so I'll be ordering another. Just wish it came in a darker colors. Being on the floor of the car will probably turn the white canvas brown to match the handles.

The supporting rods are ridiculous
The reviews are accurate. It takes way too much effort to get the rods in place, and there is NO WAY Im ever taking them out to wash it. If the rods could come out and be put back in place easily, I would feel totally different. The canvas is the classic sturdy cotton you know from Land's End. I bought a pink and a navy. The navy is very classic looking in my son's room. The pink is still growing on me, but my girls like it. Oh, and we had to adopt a rule in our house that no one can hide in the laundry hamper anymore. Bummer.

Great looking and traditional excellent quality.
Great basket. Wish it were a little larger and either came with a plastic shell/liner or had an optional liner to buy. Would make it more sanitary and easier to slide clothes out of the hamper when ready for them.

Sturdy and attractive
I ordered 2 of these after reading a number of reviews. Am using them for storage in the trunk of our cars for water, dog towels, emergency blanket etc. Am thinking I should get another to keep in the house to place items in that need to go out to the car (bottles for return etc.) That way when heading out to the car, I can just grab the tote and go. They are nice and sturdy, so am expecting them to last a long time. Got the navy as it is crisp and classic looking and the bottoms don't show the dirt!

Great for shoes
I have a large and a medium size one in chocolate and use them to store my shoes in. They are great!

NOT as pictured - why all the positive reviews?
I purchased the natural and "chocolate brown" tote, size small. The tote arrived in a box pressed flat. It looks more like a crescent shaped boat or purse than the squared corner storage tote shape pictured here. After three days, I still cannot "reshape it." The chocolate color is also far lighter in color than it appeared on my Apple MacBook Pro. Very disappointed with this purchase, especially since we had the tote monogrammed. I'm absolutely baffled about all the positive reviews for this Lands' End Tote.

I love this tote! Holds duplos well :) and a lot of other things as People have mentioned. Some commented on the handles, I don't mind the short little ones with two hands, but a little longer wouldn't be bad either. A removable shoulder strap was mentioned, I would probably use that as well. What I would like to see is an option for a canvas roll-up zippered closure (lid/cover). It would be nice to be able to zip it closed for transport in the truck, say full of toys/linens/dry food for the cabin. Just a piece of canvas with a zipper that can be laid inside or rolled up at the back when open, so nothing falls out! Otherwise great storage solution, great quality, nice looking storage bins for all sorts of things!
