Vest-type carrier bags are widely used everyday by supermarkets and food shops to give a few examples. Vest carriers are one of the most used types of plastic carrier bags, the type which we see every day in supermarkets, vest carriers also normally have a printed logo used to promote that store since these bags can be re-used, making them more of eco-friendly, as long as we remember to re-use them, the store name will be seen again and again.

Although plastic vest-type carriers are the ones mostly used there are other types made from polypropylene, paper or card to suit different requirements.

Vest type carrier bags

The most common and cheapest types of carrier bags often used in corner shops, newsagents or smaller retail outlets. The vest-type carrier bag is made of High Density Polythene, usually of very low gauge, giving good strength for a bag that is often not totally filled. Like all bags, this type of carrier can be customised with a logo by businesses but the strength of the range is really large variety of pre-coloured bags available giving reasonable branding for a low price.

Patch handle carrier bags

Carrier featuring an extra patch glued inside the handle to make it more resistant and stronger for use in retail stores with heavier or higher value items.

Varigauge carrier bags

Carrier bag varying in gauge from the top to bottom, hence its name Varigauge. The handle area has a gauge twice as thick as that at the bottom allowing for a strong handle without the need for reinforcement. This gives a good balance between strength and manufacturing cost.

Flexiloop carriers

A flexiloop carrier is similar to the Varigauge carriers and patch handled carrier bags, but these have a welded polythene loop handle attached to make the bag seem more distinctive.

Twin Clip or Clip close carriers

These types of Carrier bags are manufactured using consistent gauge and are side vented (otherwise known as 'gusseted') and with two plastic handles which clip together to close the bag.

Duffle carrier bags

Carrier bags with a rope attached to the base for carrying as well as letting you pull it to close the top. Also known as Drawstring bags for obvious reasons.

Counter bags (Butcher bags)

Commonly found in supermarkets (or the butchers, hence their alternative name) and primarily used for dispensing food. Usually small and white but quite strong sold in big easily dispensing packs and normally made to satisfy the stringent health and safety standards required for food bags.
