WHAT IS IT?
A jute shipping bag from the RNLI. They sell it as part of their stock to raise funds for the cause and the large RNLI branding raises awareness.
It is very nautical looking because the main logo looks like waves and is in a seaside pale blue, the side panels and bottom of the bag are a matching blue. The handles are thick loops and the right length for carrying over your forearm or on your shoulder. The bag measures 12 inches x 12 inches and it opens out so you can carry bulky items.
WHAT I THINK
My husband bought this bag when we were on holiday because he was heavily into fundraising for them when he lived on the coast and likes to support them when possible. We used it during our holiday and now I use it as a shopping bag or to transport my baby daughters things when we go out for the day.
The bag is strong and holds heavy loads, because it is big I am careful not to overfill it in the supermarket so I can carry it comfortably. It does not sag when it is heavy and opens out widely so you can put tins or vegetables in it without having to stretch the sides of the bag, that's what I don't like about soft canvas shopping bags and prefer ones like this with proper structure. The handles feel like they are strongly attached to the bag and also are strong in themselves.
I like the design very much because it is brighter than the other jute bags I use, the logo is large but not brash so I don't mind it even though I usually like small and discreet logos on my bags. It doesn't fold well so I keep it in the boot of my car now, the longer handled canvas bags scrunch up so those are kept in the house. This RNLI bag is precisely for shopping and isn't much use for anything else apart from when I use it for my daughters things, my husband is happy with his purchase and also uses it when he does the shopping.
The RNLI shopping bag costs £3.50 and you can buy it in any of their shops or from www.rnlishop.org
5 Dooyoo Stars.
Summary: This is a good shopping bag that supports a very good cause
