Great size, but not water or sand "proof",
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This bag is large enough for 4 beach towels, a bag of 6 or so bottles of sunscreen, a lunch cooler, plus lots of extra outside pockets for small things like water bottles, books, sunglasses, goggles, etc. but when you load it it's HEAVY on sun-exposed shoulders and my hubby has to carry it.
Since it's mesh sand falls out of it which is a plus, but sand also goes right in through the mesh when you put it down, which is a major minus. I swear since we've had this bag we have more sand in our trunk because of this. Also, if you take the bag to the pool and put it on the ground, water will ultimately be splashed near the bag and soak up through the bottom moistening all of the towels inside. This is the biggest "con" for me because we live in FL and I like to keep a beach/pool bag packed at all times and I have discovered mildewy towels in this bag more than once (thanks to hubby taking the bag to the pool unbeknownst to me, and me not being there to "babysit" it). I'm not sure if I would buy it again, I might get something with wheels instead or stick with a couple of smaller water-proof bags. The best thing about it is its size but the weight makes that a draw back too.
