A spacious pouch,1 also known as a bag of holding,23 is a magical bag containing an extradimensional space, allowing it to hold a larger volume than its dimensions should permit. There are several different types of bags of holding, with the more powerful bags able to hold a larger amount than the less powerful ones. It is possible to accidentally destroy a spacious pouch either by overloading it or by physically piercing it. It is also possible to briefly keep a live creature within a spacious pouch, but if not removed quickly they will soon suffocate.143

Like other extradimensional containers, a spacious pouch ceases to work while in another extradimensional space, with the exception of a portable hole. A spacious pouch can tear a planar rift or create a portal to the Astral Plane when combined with a portable hole, a process which destroys both items. This happens in a single blink of an eye.5

Flipping a spacious pouch inside out will eject items harmlessly, but the bag needs to be flipped back to normal again after doing this or it is unable to work.3
