They were OK... but honestly they did not fit smaller bottles that well, and with continued re-use the tabs tend to break down and not stay together securely.
I wish we had tough plastic carrying crates specifically for 341 ml bottles, and perhaps "wine-sized" crates for sizes 500ml to 750. I'd be happy to 'buy' a few on a $10.00 deposit basis. Those beer and water crates are all my family use overseas, and they really don't need a lot of single-use packages.
You think if the LCBO were so anal about non-standard bottle sizing they would have a standard plastic beer crate by now. It would be so easy to score LC environmental brownie points this way... maybe I'll look online for some.
For now, the separated cloth LCBO wine bags work pretty nicely for beer as well. Try getting some and experiment packing beer in them. The best thing is they pack flat when empty, and are a breeze to carry around.
