What is a gusseted plastic bag?

A gusset bag is a bag where an extra piece of material is added to the sides or bottom of the bag or both. This creates a larger cubic area of space inside of the bag.

Gusset bags can be made out of many different materials but are primarily made out of paper or plastic.
