Review is based on observation; the item is a gift so I haven't used it. It's a nice size and opens flat on the bottom so items can be folded and stacked and it can be set down on a stair and shouldn't fall over. It's really lightweight so doesn't add extra weight in lugging laundry around. It appears really well made; no loose threads or ragged, crooked seems. I bought item as a gift for a senior who lives upstairs from her laundry room; I'm hoping this will make it easier for her to carry laundry up and down.
