Not as useful as I'd hoped
on May 26, 2011
At first glance this is a pretty cool storage unit intended for travel. The problem I had is that the totes lack structure - so when you put stuff in the totes they take on the shape of their contents making the total carrier somewhat useless. They also don't protect their contents.
Finally, the coating on the inside of the totes has started to peel and make a mess after less than a year of owning them. I'd been storing clothes in them, and now the clothes are covered in white plastic - so they're not even very useful for that! I'm not very happy with this purchase.
Update - I noticed Natalie's 'review' suggesting that I must have abused this product. I assure you that's not the case. The totes that delaminated and shed white plastic on my clothes were sitting in a closet and not subject to any abuse at all. It's possible that it was a bad batch from Mountainsmith, but these were barely used - let alone abused.
I find it a little suspicious that this is Natalie's only review - and that she didn't purchase this product on Amazon. Looks like a paid review to me - just saying.
