Custom SmartPak Storage Bag
Would be Perfect with a Few Fixes
Great quality, pretty good price, but not sturdy. By that, I mean that if it had a solid container inside, it would be much prettier on the stall and much more stable. I don't order SmartPaks but make my own baggies, so the bag sags on the bottom. I can't comment on whether the SmartPak cardboard containers would make it a better bag. I'm still glad I got it, but don't let the square-looking picture fool you.

with a few changes this would be great
with two modifications this would be a great bag. The hanger loops are set in from the edges and the bag has no supporting structure. it collapses and does not hang flat. Velcro closure is too small and pops open constantly.
Colors are Great, Monogram is Great. Fix the structure issues and i would buy several.

This is a very simple bag; not much to it for the price. No structure. It is more like a "shoulder" bag w/ the way the strap is designed. I put this bag on my horse's blanket bar on the front of his stall. I put brushes in it so I don't have to run to the tack room for supplies. It serves its purpose, and I imagine the high price tag is due to the customization. One small square velcro closure.

I just received this in the mail and I think it will be very handy in the barn. I ordered it in black with pink trim - while I like it the pink is more of a HOT pink. Wish there had been an option for a soft or rose pink (not quite so bright). Also - agree with the other people who wished the bag was as sturdy as it was in the photos. However, I did still order the bag after reading those reviews.

Nice to have around
The SmartPak storage bag isn't one of those 'have to have' items you but once you have it you'll be glad you do. I recommend spending a few extra dollars and custom designing your own. You'll be glad you did.
The only minor change I would make would be to give the bag a little structure. When I am down to my last few SmartPaks the bag collapses on itself and doesn't look as nice as when it is filled.

I am an organizational freak, and a color coordination freak. This suits both of my fetishes. It looks great on the stall, holds my paks or supplies. Great to take to shows: I fill it with grain and a few paks on top and we are good for the weekend. I wish the barn made these mandatory of all stalls! A type A's dream!
