I guess I didn't read the description very carefully because this bag is much larger than I expected. I was envisioning something like an oversized lunch tote. In reality, it's just really big and more rectangular than it looks in the photo. It's wide.
The bag came with a warning label that says "may leak if used with liquids or ice". I guess that makes sense since it's fabric and most people use gel packs anyhow, but that message was a little jarring on a bag that says "beach please". Like "I love water as long as it doesn't touch me".
It's really cute. The color and the embellishments and pocket on the back are really fun. The straps are vinyl pleather and seem sturdy but probably not something you want on your bare shoulder in the sun.
