Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Termie Great but very simple product
This is a great product if you need a simple, inexpensive way to store your stemware outside of a cabinet, either to save space or protect the stemware. It's just a plasticized blue cotton box-shaped enclosure, held up by cardboard inserts, not that different from packing material you might find stemware shipped in. There's nothing unique or revolutionary about this product - it just works. I'd probably prefer that it weren't a bright blue, which doesn't look great on our storage rack next to other kitchen-related items, but it serves its function - keeping glasses safe and clean, and most importantly, freeing up valuable cabinet space.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AussieLady PERFECT FOR TALL WINE GLASSES
I have a set of quite tall wine glasses that have been stored on a shelf, and this stemware saver is perfect, especially as it will hold taller than average wine glasses.
The product is shipped flat in a plastic case, and inside the flat stemware saver itself are several pieces of cardboard. At first I thought the cardboard was just for keeping the product flat while shipping and almost threw them away. It only then occurred to me that they were to "line" the saver. There are four "walls" and two interlocking dividers, that once assembled provide separation for 12 glasses. It would have been helpful for the manufacturer to include some sort of pamphlet or instructions regarding the flat pieces of cardboard. Had I thrown them away, I would not have been able to properly use the stemware saver.
This is a great product and does exactly what it's designed for. I especially like that it has a zipper around the top, and it also makes the saver ideal for transporting glasses to a party when a friend needs to borrow some extra wine glasses.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Wester Skimpy Build quality and materials, little protection
Sadly, these are not the heavy & padded quilted storage cases you're looking for.
The outer shell product is made of a thin non-woven fabric (similar to the reusable dollar bags sold at grocery stores and other retailers) which is single stitched over some very thin batting (thin enough that the blue outer fabric is very visible through it).
The single zipper is very small, feels flimsy, and kinks frequently even though it has only been used a few times.
Inside, the internal dividers notch together like the walls of a cardboard wine box or premium six-pack carrier except that they are white coated and single stitched (on one edge) with fabric tape (presumably to make it more wear resistant to the repeated insertion and removal of glasses).
This design of which would be fine were it not made of the thinnest cardboard I've ever seen (I had to strain to see any corrugation).
While this might provide a bare minimum of protection for some thicker leaded glass stemware I would not trust this with crystal or even blown glass stemware. It is certainly inadequate for moving (even inside another box).
However, this stemware saver would probably be nice to prevent dust accumulation or the occasional dead bugs.

This container will protect and hold your crystal stemware safely. It is sturdy enough to protect it from accidents. Stacks well with other containers while holding the stemware.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pegnc Easy to Protect Stemware
Hagerty's Stemware Saver is made of sturdy, quilted cotton fabric in a beautiful royal blue. It holds and protects (12) of your favorite wine glasses or stemware. It is convenient to use, top loading and has a strong zipper. The dividers are made of strong laminated cardboard. It would be helpful to include instructions on putting the inserts together. I can usually figure things out quickly but this took a few minutes with my husband help. When not in use it stores flat in a nice vinyl case.
