I haven't used this bag yet. So far, it looks great and the zippers appear to be sturdier than bags costumes have come in in the past. The only thing I would change is the zipper positions on the lower accessory pockets. When the bag is hung up by the enclosed hanger, they are on the bottom, creating the likelihood of things falling out. I would rather them be at the center level of the bag.
I ordered the duffle bag along with this garment bad, and they look good quality. However, the garment bag has a very strong chemical smell. I left it in the garage for several days, and am now trying to wash it to see if I can get it out. The costumes will definitely smell if you put them in this. The duffle bag smells fine, no problems.
Is there a pic available to see of the other side?
There are several compartment pockets inside the bag, and one main pocket outside. We do not have a picture of the other side, but it is the same as the outer part of the bag. - DDS Customer Service (06/11/2014)
The material of this bag, does have a plastic-like odor. The vendor changed the way the bag is processed to reduce it, but it does still slightly linger. We have found that leaving it out of the packaging to air should take away any lingering odor. - DDS Customer Service (05/20/2013)
