We bought this, hoping that it'd be a portable closet. And surprisingly enough, it arrived and that's exactly what it was! If you're looking for a 2008 Ford Fusion or a Gallon of Milk, I'd strongly advise you to look elsewhere, because this is neither of those things. However, if you want a portable closet, this is most definitely one. It looks just like the picture. You ought to pay very very close attention to the directions while you assemble it, because there is one little tricky bit to it. And also, if you've got an IQ below probably about 85, the instructions are definitely going to confuse you. As for the assembled product, it will hold your shirts. It will hold your pants. Jackets are okay. If you're looking for something to stuff a drunken buddy in, this won't work. He'll bust right out of it. So don't do that.
We needed a compact, lightweight, dust free solution for storing overflow. this item meets all our needs, was value priced compared to other choices, Sets up in about 15 minutes and can be moved by one person without falling apart. it would only be better if it had a sturdy floor for storing light weight boxes or similar items.

This is made of several plastic connectors and metal rods. The plastic connectors which link two rods together to give the item its height are weak and break easily. I broke one when assembling the item. I had bought two of these, and the second only lasted about a month before the connectors started to fail. I bought this because of the cover, and what seemed like a good value, but it turns out I was wrong. I have since replaced with two much cheaper but better quality racks from Ikea that do not have a cover.
My cat jumped on top of it and bent the bars. had to throw away. It would be a normal portable closet though if you don't have an animal who would jump on top. The fabric is canvas which is good quality. But not strong enough for my household.
Easy to assemble, sturdy enough to hold my out of season clothing in the garage. It is just what I envisioned! Thanks.

Went together quickly per the enclosed instructions. I added a few short screws at the critical joints to insure that it stayed together during use. If not treated properly the unit could disconnect at the joints. Looks like it will give years of service if not abused.
We needed some temporary storage for clothes while we built our house and stayed in a studio apartment. The closet does the trick but it's a little wobbly when filled with heavier winter clothes. I don't think this is an item meant to last several seasons.
