    Large Organizer Bag vs. Gallon size Plastic Zipper Bag

    I carry around some medical supplies with me (all day, ever day) that just barely fit into a gallon size zipper bag (I use the same bag for a few months, or until it looks really gross and dirty, then sub in a new one).

    I'm wondering if a large size organizer bag might be a good substitute?
    I didn't see dimensions listed, if anyone knows approx size I'd appreciate it.

    For reference, my zipper bags are 10 9/16 x 10 3/4 IN. If the large org. bag (or something similar) is a little larger, it would be great, I just don't want a large bulky bag to deal with.

    I think that the Packing Cube Shoulder Bag, a Packing Cube with O rings to fit in a carrying strap, might me the bag that meets your needs the most.
    It has the capacity you are looking for and is made of washable fabric.
    But it is 3 dimensional.

    The Organizer Pouches are also a solution if you want something that zips flat more like a zip lock bag but looks way better, has more capacity and will last you... well you can pass it on or lose it, that's how long they last.

    Same for the Packing Cube Shoulder Bag, by the way.

    To help you decide, I posted the measurements and links to pictures and descriptions below.

    Don't hesitate to ask question, I bought all 3 bags.

    Here are the measurements of the Organizer Pouches.

    Large measures: 14.5" x 11.2" (370 x 285mm)

    Medium measures: 10.3" x 7" (260 x 180 mm)
