Every summer I struggle with finding the perfect beach bag. Truth be told the real issue is finding a bag big enough to carry all of our stuff. 5 towels and snacks for the entire day are enough to generally fill up the entire bag without room for anything else. Yes, I know my kids could each carry their own, but we have our routine and they help in other ways. So onto finding a big enough beach bag. I’ve searched long and hard and have found a few that fit the bill. Here’s to finding your perfect beach bag.
I’ve written about SnapSac before and I still love their bags. I’ve been using my SnapSac Mega Tote this summer and it’s perfect for the beach. The beach bag is huge -it is 28″ wide. There’s one small pocket for keys and other items that could get swallowed into this large bag. My only complaint-I wish it had more pockets and compartments. The bags comes in array of different, funky patterns and folds neatly into a clutch shape when you’re ready to store it. Best of all-it can be thrown into your washing machine.
This bag is basically indestructible. It’s also huge, coming in at 19 in.(W) x15 in.(H) x10 in.(D). My favorite feature-the bag is water resistant, which certainly comes in handy at the beach or pool. It comes in a variety of cute and stylish patterns.
Everything Bag/Seatbelt Tote of Many Colors
This bag is made of super durable recycled seat belt webbing. It is called the Everything Bag for a reason-it’s 23” wide x 15″ high x 9″ deep and can truly hold it all! As stated on the BagInspiration site:
Worldwide demand for autos has left behind an abundance of seat belt webbing, rejected for the slightest color variation. Originally designed to be used as the life saving seat belt in your car, this polyester material is of the highest quality and made to last. Maggie Bags™ give new life to the unwanted fabric by creating a beautiful line of sophisticated handbags.
Whale (Really Big) Large Mesh Family Beach Bag
If mesh and lots of compartments are your thing then this is your bag. It may not be as stylish as the other bags on this list, but this beach bag is a good size, 16″ x 15″ x 8 ” and has 8 large compartments on the exterior. Another fabulous feature-the bag is waterproof and can be rinsed after use. In addition to the exterior compartments there’s a zipper pocket and D-ring on the inside of the bag.
LeSportsac Reversible Beach Tote
LeSportsac‘s been around forever and there’s a reason why. These beach bags are incredibly durable. I’m embarrassed to admit that I still have a LeSportSac bag that was given to me when I was in high school. This beach bag may not be as big as some of the others on this list (9 H x 10 W x 4.5 D), but it has a few other features that are really nice. This bag is reversible-so you’ll get two looks for the price of one. It is also incredibly light weight and can be thrown in the wash when needed. There are a few colors to choose from. It’s not inexpensive, but it will last you a lifetime.
What’s your favorite bag to carry to the beach?
