To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The covers arrived right on the due date. But they have a very strong plastic odour so I have been unable to use them on my suits for fear of there would be odour transfer. I have been airing them out for the past 3 weeks and it is starting to dissipate but is still very strong.
This would have been perfect as I am having a big carpet beetle problem and was looking for big bags in which to protect my clothing, etc. I was unable to see that the handles did not make it air tight. In addition, I quickly opened the sealed package upon arrival and I promise you that the tightly sealed plastic container within tightly sealed plastic packaging had several of the very pests (but dead) that I am fighting here. I did not wait around to open it either, so these did not come from my house. I guess that was proof that everyone can have issues with these pests and to be very careful of any container with handles. Too bad though, as it was thinker and made better than any of the bags I have ordered, but I did not leave it out of the packaging long at all once I saw the insects inside,
Plenty of storage room, but right side top seam of bag either tore during assembly (installing top metal frame) or item arrived faulty. Did not notice until bag was hung up and I had put some clothes in it. No way to patch the tear. So, item not fit for sealed storage. Metal frame for top is odd, dips downward front & back & doesn’t support top of bag. Also, bag needs a metal support and cardboard/plastic insert for bottom stability. Too much cost cutting here.
We'll see how this holds up, but my guess is that it won't. I hate when things cite being made of "heavy duty fabric" and aren't, it's misleading. This item's shelves are made of that same papery pseudo-"fabric" that you find in those reusable store bags, except thinner. Like, able to see my hand through it clearly thin. I haven't even finished loading it up, yet, but three thin shirts folded on one shelf sink down the bottom to the point it makes the shelf about half the width. The top is the same papery "fabric" quilted over, so it does look strong enough to hold up with the hooks.
I'm debating going to a craft store and getting a few sections of the sort of posterboard used for tri-fold presentations and using that to support the shelves. The vinyl sides seem like they'll hold up okay, but the shelves are just a sorry excuse for anything.
The hanging garment bag product works well for it's intended purpose but it's construction has a major integrity flaw. The wire frame that supports the bag is poorly welded together and it broke after 1 week rendering the entire product unusable. I bought two but I do not have much hope for the second one given the structural flaw.
I bought two of these. One is doing ok, but one is not. The metal part that you hang clothes on cannot hold much weight and my clothes are all summer/t-shirts, so the metal part that you put hangers on shouldn't be sagging as it is. The zipper was doing something funny the other day too.
Sagging and bent metal with 3 jackets inside. I was replacing a similar 15+ year old garment bag (maybe Whitmore but no label—design is same) that tore. Luckily I kept the old wire frame and replaced this one—metal was thicker by about 50%—that hadn't bend in all that time. Hopefully may last another 15 yrs. 2 stars because the zipper works and other materials seem good.
