What to consider when buying a beach bag
There are many things to consider before buying a beach bag. Here are some of the key considerations.
A good beach bag will need to be made from material that is durable, water and sand-resistant. Some bags (like our bag) have a perforated or mesh material which has many practical advantages on the beach. Be sure to choose a material that looks good but is also geared to withstand the elements of an ocean environment.
Beach bags should be quite large, as they may need to hold a number of towels, a picnic blanket, sun cream, food and drink. Larger bags allow you to pack more, but they are more difficult to carry. Consider your size requirements and also take a look at how the bag can fold down for storing it when not in use.
While a beach bag is a practical item, it should also be an extension of your personal style. Some bags are plan in color while others have more funky designs. Be sure to choose one that fits your personal taste.
Some beach bags just have a single compartment, and others have multiple compartments of different sizes. Depending on your preference, both types can be useful. Try to find a bag with a small compartment, ideally zippered, for storing valuable like your keys and money.
