Purchased this a few weeks ago to use as a hamper. So far, it has held up well. It is currently located on carpet, and stands upright when empty, both when the handles are up or collapsed. I have filled it to the brim with baby clothing, and it has remained standing without support or slouching. The fabric is sturdy, and the reinforced handles are great for toting up and down stairs. I like the oval shape of the hamper, it doesn't take up much floor space.
