    What does it look and feel like?
    Like a supermarket carrier, this is a vest carrier bag which refers to the vest shaped appearance of the bag. It's manufactured from a high density polythene which means it's scrunchy and thin to touch, just like a supermarket carrier. And just like a supermarket carrier, these bags are primarily designed for function over form. It's rare that you would find this type of bag in high end boutiques but you'll be sure to find them in the vast majority of high street stores.
    What's it used for?
    Standard duty:
    Typically used for fine knitwear, underwear, socks and other small items of clothing. This bag is not limited to use with clothing lines however and is frequently used for a huge variety of other small lightweight product lines. Not suitable for heavy items and / or items with sharp corners.

    Heavy duty:
    This bag is almost double the thickness of the standard duty version and is therefore more suited to items that may have sharp corners. Typically used for household products, cosmetics, small sweet and savoury foods, and small toys. This bag has more of a quality feel to it compared to the standard duty version.
    What do the dimensions mean?
    254mm x 381mm x 457mm (10in x 15in x 18in) means:
    • the bag width is 254mm (10in) but expands outwards to 381mm (15in) when the gusset is fully opened
    • the bag length is 457mm (18in)
    Still confused? Take a look at the diagram below:

    • B = 381mm (25in)
    • C = 457mm (29in)
