What is the best icon to represent the shopping cart for an e-commerce store?

I’m looking for an icon that will clearly identify the “shopping cart” for an apparel store.
A shopping bag? A Cart? Is there any other specific icon?

If we go further, do you think it is better to display an icon? only text (bag / cart?) or both?


The three icons I commonly see in use are:

  • A Cart (Amazon, Overstock, etc)
  • A Bag (JCPenny, LL Bean, etc.)
  • A Basket (err.. can’t think of reference)

Most online apparel stores I see use the “Bag” reference and some form of icon for a bag.
