About our plastic vest bags
Classic white vest carrier bags – 9Mu – often referred to as ‘supermarket-style bags’, they are a popular carrier for mini-markets, green grocers, butchers and takeaway food restaurants.
If you are after a slightly thicker bag then you need a higher micron, this is represented in the size of the product as ‘mu’, the highest micron bag we currently stock in white is a super strong 22micron, this bag won’t let you down!
White vest bags are made from high density lightweight polythene, making them strong and suitable for general retail. These bags are available in thicknesses from 9 to 25 micron, the higher the micron the thicker the plastic. For heavier items we suggest the highest micron bag.
If you need a stronger bag see our full range here carrier bags.
How do you measure a vest bag?
The measurements of a vest style bag can be a bit confusing – take an example of our 11 x 17 x 21″ size bag.
The first measurement 11″ refers to the width of the bag not including the side gussets.
The second measurement 17″ is the width 11″ plus the width of the side gussets 6″ – making 17″.
Finally the third measurement 21″ is the height of the bag from the base to the top of the handle!
