(Wife writing on hubby's account) This is my first shopping trolley ever. I'm 40 years old and due to a health condition I find myself with hardly any energy anymore. I'd been toying with the idea of getting one of these wheeled shopping bags and my latest trip to the shops confirmed I should get one. I can shuffle there and back just fine but carrying bulky/heavy bags back with me is now a stretch. So I looked online for a while to find the right one for me. I'm 5' 10 so wanted a taller one so I don't have to stoop when pulling it along. At 95cm tall this one seemed a good height. I nearly settled for a cheaper one but upon looking at those reviews the bag didn't seem to be attached very well to the frame and kept either blowing all over the place when empty or the top flap was reported to undo under strain when full etc etc... So I looked a bit more and found this one. It had good reviews and seemed to be more attached to the frame, aswell as most importantly: being tall enough! It took about 3 days to arrive and came in a box which was as tall as the trolley but fairly flat. The first thing I noticed pulling it out was that it really was very lightweight. The wheels were in a separate little bag. In order to assemble you just yank the little black ends off the axel and push the wheels on in their place. There is a step by step picture instructions card to follow to make sure. Once the wheels are on you push the frame out into place and that's it. Upon inspection of the bag itself, I was very impressed and more excited than I should be about all the little pockets and straps. Especially against some of the negative points on other models. The bag itself is insulated and securely attached to the frame so it will stay in place even when the bag is empty. The main compartment has a toggle closing and also a long flap over the top. It is secured by a strap with a snap fastener (I dunno what they're called but you can see in the picture) so you know it's not going anywhere with a full load or bit of wind. There are also two additional pockets on the front, one insulated with a toggle fastening under the flap (great for bottles). There is also a flat, zipped compartment on the other side for any other bit and pieces. Additional features of the bag are a carry handle on the side like a duffel bag and two plastic loops for a shoulder strap (provided). So it looks like you can also take it off the frame and carry it about as an independent bag. Like I said, I am a bit stupidly excited about this new shopping trolley. But I didn't think I would find one so practical and cool. And it is the actual height as advertised and a very comfortable height to pull along. I guess I was expecting to be let down in some way and am very happy to report that I wasn't. This seems a very good bit of kit and I can now shuffle my backside to the local shops and **** my stuff in my little baggy and pull it home without fear of passing out as soon as I get there. Marvellous!
A useful item
Wide ranging and easy to use trolley not too cumbersome
I was a bit nervous about the quality but it turns out great! Very happy about it and the bag is good quality. Can put probably 3 shopping bags of things in, takes good amount of weight and quite sturdy. fold and unfold the wheels easily. My family would like to get one for themselves too after seeing mine!

Works ok as a shopping trolley. one front pocket is useless as the cover flap cannot cover the contents.Have not used the bag off the trolley with shoulder strap.
This is my only experience of a trolley, but I think it’s excellent, so lightweight for pulling, lifting. I bought it because of the insulated bag and it worked a treat, kept everything cool for a few hours. It’s easy to pull up steps or curbs. And the bag easily detaches so we have used the trolley without the bag for carrying other items. And then the trolley folds flat, brilliant.
Good strong trolley
Bought for my folks who say it's great and much better than their last 1. It also holds plenty
