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!

While this is a very good canvas tote, it is not the size I really wanted. I have been unable to find a medium size tote bag with a short drop handle.

BOUGHT TWO ~ LOVE THEM
We bought a white for white clothes and a spruce for colors. Once filled, it is a full load. Easy to carry up and down our basement stairs. The structure is perfect and assembly was fine, but we did use a rubber mallet. I would highly recommend these for laundry!!

I use the large size in place of plastic laundry baskets as I can fold them down for storing when not in use. The handles could be a wee bit longer but they are totally workable as is.
I use the XSmall size for scarves, socks etc on shelves in my closet. Will get my next order embroidered, I wasn't sure I'd like them; turns out I LOVE them.
I also have every size in between and use them for various things around the house, in the car and even at work.

LOVE LOVE LOVE these canvas totes!!
The quality is top notch. They are a bit on the pricey side, so i just waited for a sale. I will buy more in the future in different sizes.

Super Sturdy and Useful
I bought two of the totes in the extra large. I use them as laundry basket/hampers. They stand nicely on their own and look great! I didn't want the actual deep hamper. The totes are lightweight, and hold a great deal of laundry. Easy for transport and look nice in the bedroom. Thanks Landsend!

Great Product, Difficult Assembly
Like other reviews of the laundry bags, I echo their sentiments that once assembled they are really nice products but the assembly takes some serious upper body strength to insert the metal poles because they don't slide easily through certain sections of the canvas. I ordered 2 of the laundry bags. One was correctly constructed but the other bag's metal frame at the top of the bag was misassembled such that once the support poles were added the top frame didn't align with the bottom frame. One was skewed to the other. With a LOT of muscle, my husband was able to turn the frame within the canvas to straighten it out but it wasn't easy. Great finished products that need some work on how they are constructed so customers don't have to work so hard to enjoy them!

Size Large works well as a laundry basket
I bought two of the Large totes (labeled 'blankets" in the photo) and they are quite generous in size. I got tired of my plastic laundry baskets (used for getting dry laundry out of the dryer then taking folded clothes to where they need to go). These totes are a great improvement. I bought a new, large capacity washer & dryer about 6 mos. ago and the Lands' End totes can hold the giant loads that I'm running these days. It took some getting used since my previous baskets had stiff sides and these don't and the sides can sometimes fall in slightly, but it didn't take long for me to adjust to the soft canvas totes. When not in use, they can be folded/flattened and stored on top of the dryer. A few of the reviewers mentioned that the handles are too short. I am NOT finding this to be an issue. I have a smaller load of laundry that I want to carry in one hand, I find that I can easily grab both handles and the canvas just folds (the sides come together).

I bought 2 medium's for my trunk.....they fit perfectly. I put my grocery bags in them and just carry the whole thing into the house to unload. No more 50 trips to the car after shopping all day. Of course the quality and workmanship are typical Land's End.....fabulous!! I love these and will definately be back for more.

Excellent product, well made and fits perfectly.
The tote is very well made and fits perfectly in my bathroom. The handles make it very easy to carry to the laundry room. It is high quality and I look forward to years of use.
