Big, big bag


Special to The Miami Herald

The folks at Household Designs aren’t kidding when they call their featherweight totes MightyStor. Yes, this polyethylene-tarp zippered storage bag is mighty strong, but it’s also mighty big (22 inches wide by 26 inches high by 12 inches deep — and that’s just the medium-size model. The large (30 by 26 by 12) could carry a collie — not that you would want to. These rugged bags are tear- and water-resistant, and have sewn-in nylon double shoulder straps and a side grab strap. Empty, they fold down practically flat (maybe half-an-inch thick). Full is another story. These are great for shopping adventures wherever you venture, toting loads of beach gear, and as extra protection for the contents of suitcases exposed to the elements. In fact, they’re good for storing the suitcases themselves in dusty garages or basements.

Household Essentials Medium Storage Bag (2620) is $9.99; large (2622), $10.97; at; 866-216-1072.
