Extra Large Beach Bag or Pool Tote with Soft Cooler



If we are headed to the park, pool or beach, there are a few things that must be true for our carrying tote. One, it must have an easy-to-access zippered pocket for my loose items, such as my jewelry and/or my driver's license. It must be very roomy (we take a lot of stuff!), and it has to breathe well, since sometimes our wet swimsuits make their way into the bag. This extra large tote does the trick for all of those things, and it has a secret surprise.  




What is completely unexpected with this tote (the secret surprise that delighted us), is that the whole entire bottom zips open and is a soft cooler!! I can't count the times we've taken an ice cold drink to the beach only to have it be lukewarm in an instant (it's hot out there). Having a place to keep drinks and snacks cool that doesn't require carrying a separate hard cooler (which we won't take because it's too much/difficult to carry) is really convenient and useful. No more long trips from water's edge to the boardwalk to buy drinks either, when you've got them right there with you.


Here is another look at the insulation. I like that the cooler is a part of the bag because you simply hoist it over your shoulder and carry with everything nicely tucked and dry in the upper half and you're drinks or lunch (pack in containers so they don't get squished) in the bottom, nice and cool. 


The zipper is strong, and on the inside you can see the bright red key clip. I love that they included this, because otherwise I'm always digging in the bottom of the bag for my car keys!


There are mesh side pockets on both sides, perfect for my son's sandy beach shoes. No matter how much you rinse or tap, sand is still somewhere in the these shoes, so to have the mesh pocket where the beach sand will just fall through while we are walking is awesome. 


The handles come together and secure with a Velcro closure. That means you can carry it with open straps or you can close it, which I think is just a mater of preference. If you're carrying by hand instead of slinging it over your shoulder, this makes for a nice grip pad.


Then you see there is a slip pocket on the back side too. Pockets galore in this bag, which makes me love it even more.


Usually we have some cold water or Gatorade with us, and if we had it would have been nice and cold in the bottom of the bag. Here you can tell though, that the cooler section is empty. Made for lighter carrying for my son on this particular trip anyway, since I was toting the chairs. :)  I love this bag and am happy to have it permanently in the trunk of our car, where we will definitely use it the most (we are known to do impromptu park and beach visits). All we have to do is carry the ice cold beverages out to the car, add them to the bottom of the bag and go (since it's already pre-packed with towels, beach toys, and a big beach blanket). It's a handy way to be ready at a moment's notice, and I couldn't be more pleased. You can purchase it in black or aqua. Highly recommend. Visit the Amazon link to make a purchase or learn more.
