What is the different between bag and pouch?

Bag

C asks:

I have a discussion with my co-worker about the difference between bag and pouch. I called a bag of 500/1000 gram, but she called a pouch of 500/1000 gram. I think the pouch means the standing bag, but the bag can’t stand. Right?

Generally, a pouch indicates a small size or volume, while a bag has no indication of size. All pouches are bags, but not all bags are pouches. (Kinda like how all pennies are coins, but not all coins are pennies)
