Packaged here in a set of five, they measures 12 by 14 inches, wash up and hang dry easily, and make a perfect complement to flip & tumble’s shoulder bags and shopping totes.

We have had these bags for almost 3 years at this point (bought in 2010). We use them when we go food shopping for all sorts of produce, as well as nuts and other items from the bulk aisle. They are great for farmer's market's trips, too.

We use them to transport from store/market to home and then for carrying nuts around during the day for snacking.

They have been proven as very durable. There are no holes or rips in any of the bags.

We use other products for storing produce, which are specifically made for that purpose. (a commenter asked, so: we like Rubbermaid Produce Savers & Progressive Lettuce Keepers, depending on the item)

Our store has a scale in the aisle which creates a label. We print the label and then stick it onto the cord (on top of the other labels) - {another option would be to use an index card with previous trips' labels stuck on it, most recent on top, and binder- clipped to the bag/cord} - for scanning at the cashier. This way, it's easy for them to scan and we can remove it (cut labels off cord, or remove binder clip) for washing.

Another commenter asked about the weight, so I have updated my review with this info:

Using my American Weigh ONYX Slim Design Kitchen Scale, 11-Pound by 0.1-Ounce, Black, I can report that one used produce bag (may be some onion flakes or nut casings in there) weighs 0.5 oz / 15g. If you add the labels (we have about 14 or so stacked on top of each other), it's about 0.8 oz, total.

Whenever possible, we would usually put the items on the scale without the bag, weigh them, print the label and then put the items in the bag and the label on the bag.

I have been using these bags for a few months and get asked all the time where I purchased them. I have been taking my own reusable grocery bags for a while and always felt bad about still using plastic for produce. They are holding up well so far and wash well. You can see through the bags, so the grocer can see the tags easily when making your purchase. The last time I was at the local natural grocer, the checker asked again where I got them and wrote the name down. They may want to carry them in the store, since they get asked for something like this often. By the way, the Flip & Tumble Reusable Tote - Brown grocery bags are great, too. I always have one in my bag so that I am not often left without a reusable bag.

Size Name: 5 Bags Verified Purchase
When I first got these I loved them, and I just about ordered a few more packages right away. They are a nice, high quality, soft mesh material that seems very durable. You can see through them fairly well (like, you can tell what's inside, but reading numbers on a produce sticker would be tricky. I got multiple people raving about them at my Farmers' Market. Problem is, some produce gets soft and/or shrivelled up when stored in the fridge in these. Works fine so far for storing apples in the fridge. But carrots and snap peas started getting soft after a few days, and grapes got shriveled up (I am comparing to a plain plastic bag). If you know you are going to be using the produce within a day or two then they'd be fine. I will still use them for tomatoes, stone fruit, and other produce that will get left at room temp once I get it home. Could also work well for some dry goods. Also, the drawstring is fairly thin, so it works very well for cinching up the bag, but you can't really rely on the drawstring to be used as a handle (like you would with a plastic bag or nylon sack). I still might purchase more, because for the right purposes these are nice bags.

For the price and the purpose of these bags, they are pretty good! These could be easily sewn at home, but for the price and convenience, I'll sew up another project another day. :) They are lightweight, but so far, the stitch and mesh have held up very well to heavy produce. The size is perfect for a family to hold the amount of produce one would typically get for a family in a week. Of course, considerably larger produce will not fit in this bag, but neither does it fit in most grocery store plastic bags. These easily compact down to manageable storage in a purse. Being able to wash the produce directly in the bag is also a plus with the mesh. I can then clean the mesh and hang to dry for my next shopping trip. Easy-peezy. But they are also easily cleaned with towels in my washer, then hung to dry. (Mesh dries quickly.) I enjoy the color coded tags for personal reasons of my own mind-organizing needs. The drawstring is lightweight, which makes it easy to close and open. Some of the heavy duty drawstrings are so heavy duty, opening and closing makes it more difficult. Therefore, I prefer the lightweight drawstring on these bags for their purpose.

The only con is that it is hard to read labels through the mesh, even though the description says it's easy to see through. Some others have indicated they did not have this problem, but I'm having a hard time seeing how that's true. I can easily see what is in the bag and know what it is, but you can't see the produce numbers through the bag. Going to a farmers market, this usually isn't much of a problem, but a grocery store, it may be, depending on where you shop and the cashier you get. :) However, with the lightweight drawstring, it should be easy to open and close the bag to get the numbers, when needed.
