I received this Thirty One bag for review, and it’s a keeper. It was larger than I expected, but I’ve found that the possible uses are endless. I love the plaid, it’s a classic design. The bag is well made and can serve as a week-ender, diaper bag, and would be great for carrying supplies to a scrap book party or beach bag.
It has a hard bottom, which helps to ensure the content stays in place and the bag keeps its shape. The bag is deep, which makes it an excellent week-ender. The material is study enough to handle the beach. Notice the pockets on the side. It’s great for carrying baby’s bottle and sippy cups. Toss in a bottle of water or drink for yourself. You don’t have to worry about the liquid spilling inside, but if it does the fabric on in the sides are made of a vinyl like material. Wipe it clean.
Back to utilizing the bag for the beach. Carrying a few beach towels won’t be a problem in this bag. It’s big enough to handle the sun screen, tanning lotion and the shells that the kids find on the beach too. Although I didn’t try it, I believe the sand can be easily wiped off.
The only issue that I had with the bag were the straps. I wasn’t particularly happy about the material. I’m not sure how to describe the material, they look similar to straps that you would find on a backpack. They actually look nice going down the center of the bag, my problem was the handles. Would that be a deterrent to purchasing the bag, no. I’m a big fan of Thirty-One products. I encourage you to check out the products at Thirty-One and take a look for yourself. They have great bags and accessories.
Note: I received this bag as compensation for this review, however, my opinion of the bag is my opinion only.
