Solid Packable Cinch Sack
Bag seems nice but embroidery is questionable
I bought 7 of these bags for gifts so I have not used them and cannot comment on durability/wear and tear. However, the embroidery is not great. A few are ok and others are so so. Have not contacted Lands End yet as I am still trying to decide what to do.

This is a quality bag. The colour is beautiful and true to the website.
I am saving this bag as a Christmas gift for my daughter. I know she will love it. The quality is much better than some similar bags I have seen. The purple colour is beautiful and I know that she will get a lot of use out of it carrying her various sport shoes to and from school. Thanks, Land's End!

perfect size for a dog bag
I recently ordered 4 of theses bags for Christmas gifts to the granddogs! monogrammed with their names. pink for the girls and blue w/green for the boys, will fill with treats. I think this bag will be great to carry along when going for walks. On each side is a place to hold waters bottles, a pocket w/zipper is perfect for cell phone and keys. I had been searching for a bag and this one I think will work great!

Ordered this for my daughter's gym clothes, and it's perfect. She loves the aqua color, and the monogram is nice.

Great Cinch Bag
I know this is supposed to be a kid's bag but boy I love it and I am not a kid. It is well-made, attractive and a nice size. I've had a couple other cinch bags and this one is by far the best made and not wildly expensive. I would definitely recommend.

Perfect for hikes or the beach
Well made. Love the mesh outside pockets for water bottles. The straps are comfortable since they're a thicker fabric rope than others. I love the bright color. Use it for ferry rides and beach days, putting water on the outside, and sunscreen, lunch , paperback book on the inside, and prescription sunglasses and cell phone in outside zipper pocket.

Nice size, good sturdy material and thick string
This bag is much better than the thin cheap ones that you find in the stores. The material is thick and it is a nice size. The pocket in the front is an extra bonus. The strings are thick...though long. This bag and the strings are a little big and long for my 4 year old.

As expected, other than the flower
I ordered the dark purple bag and had my daughter's name embroidered on the front. The purple bag is only shown with the flower, so I assumed it was part of the bag. Apparently it wasn't. I feel the description was not clear enough. It offers you to add an icon down further in the description, but on the top where you order it states nothing about the icon and when you enter the name to be embroidered, it doesn't ask if you also want an icon. Apparently icons are an additional $6 and must be phone ordered. As for the bag itself, it is an average size for a cinch sack, appears well made (although we haven't used it yet) and has a nice deep color, but it's not as cute as the one pictured with the flower! I am sending mine back (with free shipping, thank you customer service) and getting the one I was originally expecting.

When they say "spot clean" they mean it!
When I got this, monogrammed and all, I was VERY happy. It is substantial, I love the straps, and the zippered pocket is a bonus. After a summer of bringing this string bag to amusement parks, water parks and baseball games, the light pink was fairly dirty, so I threw it in the wash tonight, with a load of the kids' clothes. I washed it on warm, and did NOT put it in the dryer. When hanging it to air dry, I was happy with ow the light pink came clean, but then I noticed that there was gooey plastic lining peeling all over the place on the inside. It is incredibly gross, and there is now no plastic/rubber backing to the mulberry fabric of the pack, except for the stringy pieces sticking to other parts of the inside of the bag.
I've washed many a backpack in the washing machine over the past 35 years - since I was in high school - and I've never had this happen with a bag. What is the point of having such light colored accent fabric on this type of bag if you can't wash it? I'm so disappointed! Technically, it is my fault for not paying attention to the specific cleaning instructions for this item, but it never occurred to me that someone would sell a string pack for this price that couldn't actually be laundered. Think carefully before buying this for a kid that might put it through more abuse than I did.
