There are a couple things to note:
1. The dimensions are accurate as described. It's small if you are making an afghan & large for a sock project. The handle & strap are sturdy & comfortable. I find it very convenient for transporting my projects to different locations.
2. There are no side supports. This bag will collapse if you don't have something tall inside. I keep a full skein that I haven't started using yet. Works very well for me.
I think of this as more of a travel type thing where you can take some yarn with you on a trip in a safe and lightweight container. Other reviewers made reference to a smell , and it does have one but I don't notice it too much, so I don't consider it overpowering. And the message that the product could cause cancer that another reviewer mentioned was not there when I opened the box and looked at the packaging.
This bag also cannot stand up on it's own so you need to improvise with some cardboard.
All and all this is a nice bag, but the size and floppiness of it are just a hughe drawback to me. It was not what I was looking for . I am new to knitting and this bag was not a 'yarn drum' , it's more of a caddy that allows you to safely take your work with you as you travel. Im giving it 3 stars because it does what it says but I am knocking off two because of the lack of size. If you buy this don't expect anything large that you can store all your knitting gear in. Expect something more along the lines of a carry on bag at an airport.
The two slits at the top are convenient for pulling your working yarn through but what I really like about them is that small projects can be pushed into the slit for storage or with larger projects, you can pull the entire skein through and out the top.
The attached tool caddy is good size and I like it can be attached to the outside. No chance of losing it and no need to dig through the yarn inside to find it.
The pocket in the front comes in handy as a quick place to stick something of frequent use such as a scissors.
I knocked off one star in the review due to it's collapsible nature. Nice feature if you want to store the empty drum but I believe most people using an item such as this are constant crocheters/knitters and would have the drum in play all the time. I used two pieces of cardboard the width & height of the drum and interlocked them down the middles creating in effect four chambers which holds the item in an upright and not collapsible position. I've found in doing this another benefit: as the skeins run out, the chambers are keeping the yarns from tangling together.
