I had wanted to get one for a long time but I kept putting it further down my wish list, opting for other TB items first. I have about twenty reusable shopping bags that I have acquired over the years and I just couldn't justify getting one more. However, my large solar shop bag is leaps and bounds better than any other shop bag I have used. It holds soooo much and is very easy to load. I love to bag my own stuff ( mostly because too often I get home with my bananas smashed on the bottom ) but when I do have to hand over my bag, the packer usually is amazed at how big and easy it is to load. My next order will include at least one more large shop bag ( ultraviolet ).
