We will be cloth diapering. I'm thinking of having two large wet bags in rotation at home, and a small one for the diaper bag.
Any recommendations? Currently hearing good things about Planet Wise and Skip Hop.
Anyone used theirs for an extended period of time? How did it fare after several washes?

Even though I don't cloth diaper, I have been using this wet bag for swimming for the last few years. It fits quite a bit, I put in 2 x bathers and 2 x towels.
Never had any leaks, no mould, no smells and it washes very well. I have one that I keep in my bathroom as a hamper for baby's dirty clothes as well, really love it and the colours are great.

Planet Wise is very durable! That's what I went with.

Planet wise is awesome. We have two planetwise extra large (one of which we bought second hand) for every day use at home, and a kangacare, and two no brand cheapies for work (I nanny and bring baby with me), and a bumgenius for my purse.

I like planetwise for travel. I bought two of their big hanging wet bags and after a year they were leaking. We switched to a trash can instead and used trash bags to finish our with DS 1.
This time I got a kangacare pail linear and a used planetwise liners. The kangacare one is neat because it has a drawstring closure so we can use it while traveling or without the trash can. I just got it so I don't know how it will hold up to long-term use.

We use planet wise wet bags and liners. They have held up great with frequent washes. We're currently using the same bags we used with LO1 with LO2.

Planet Wise! I have two wet bags for the diaper pail and one wet/dry bag for the diaper bag. Actually, the zipper on my wet/dry bag broke after a year, but the bag still functions fine. I bought a Bummis bag to replace it and it was awful! I mean, it kept the wet separate from the dry but it didn't contain the smell. There's a reason it was cheap. I'll never stray from Planet Wise again.

Kangacare zippered bags as diaper pails and a planet wise for the purse.

I have two small skip hop ones that I used for the first year. They fit maybe two diapers in them.
I got two planetwise large bags for daycare and they are great too.

We used 2 large Planet Wise wet bags for 2 years for home and travel, had 1 Planet Wise pail liner for poop diapers, and 1 homemade medium size wet bag for the diaper bag. I also used a small Planet Wise to store pump parts in the fridge at work. All the Planet Wise worked great - never wet on the outside and smells were contained when zipped. They're still in great shape now but DD is potty trained.

I have two planet wise diaper pail inserts for home that have held up well so far. For daycare I have two smaller bumpkins bags that hold at least 6 diapers pretty comfortably. They've all held up really well. I have one that is cotton or some cotton like synthetic that is not holding up well.

So I don't use this as a kids wet bag, but I hang this on my oven to stuff all dirty rags in. I've washed this with the dirty rags in hot water/sanitize cycle countless times and the bag comes out looking like new. So this may work for you!

We use the simple Planet Wise pail liners for lining the diaper pail at home. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003CVSWEK/ref=twister_B00LY05O2O?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
We have two of them and they have stood up to lots of washes over the last 16 months no problem.
For cloth diapers at daycare, we use the Planet Wise zip-up wet bag (man these come in a lot more colors now) https://www.amazon.com/Planet-Wise-Diaper-Jewel-Woods/dp/B00NA8JM58/ref=sr_1_4_s_it?s=baby-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1470932667&sr=1-4&keywords=wet+bag
Then we have a couple of simple small zipper wet bags that we use when we're out and about. They get a lot less washing/use than the above ones though, which I highly recommend.

@snowjewelz: Nice idea. I've been in need of a better solution for storing used kitchen towels.

Been using planet wise and blueberry diaper pail bags and no complaints here. As for smaller bags, I've use planet wise, itsy bitsy, bumkins wet bags. All do their job. Bumkins ones were purchased because they had superheros (Wonder Woman and superman) but they are thin. The other bags have a second layer of fabric. The smaller wet bags are kept in our diaper bag and used for dirty clothes and rarely for cloth diapers. I apparently agreed to use disposables diapers when we leave the house. It's a compromise DH and I made. So if I'm running late, they might be in cloth diaper when we leave the house. All of the bags we used, kept the smell in.
