Strong and well-made; dimensions are confusing
on May 7, 2012
These bags are very strong and well-made. However, I was confused by the dimensions: I initially ordered the 21x36 bag but I had to return it and order this larger one. As the bag is more or less round when packed with soft items like clothes, I had assumed that 21" on the 21x36 was the diameter. In fact, 21" is the width when the bag is folded flat (i.e., half the circumference); so the true diameter of the 21x36 is only about 14.5" (or 0.7 times the stated width); or, if the back is packed with something square, each of the four sides measures half the stated width (i.e., 10.5" for the 21x36). The so-called 30" width bag has a true diameter of 21" (which is what I wanted in the first place), or a square-side width of 15".
