beach bag

 

Ahoy there! The summer months are almost upon us, and we’re counting down the days until we can finally hit the beach. The key to a truly blissful day on the shore? Sun, sand, and plenty of prep. Pack everything you need in style, starting with…

The Perfect Carryall: Herschel Market Tote, $80
Sailcloth and brass grommets provide nautical appeal; the reinforced bottom and begging-to-be-sun-faded fabric make it durable. Plus, it includes pockets and is spacious enough to hold everything you need, including…

The Perfect Hydrator: S’well Bottle, $35
These stainless steel bottles keep liquids cold for a full 24 hours, so you’ll never again take a big, old swig of unexpectedly toasty water. (It also keeps contents warm for 12 hours, but we’ll get back to you on that around November…)

The Perfect Suit Storage: Go Clean Wet Suit, $18
Protect the rest of your belongings by storing your damp swimsuit in polyurethane sacks. They’ll keep everything dry and sand-free, and unlike Ziplocs, they’re reusable and eco-friendly.

The Perfect Power Pack: X-Ray Quart Bag, $14
Toiletry pouches are usually designed to keep liquids contained, but there’s no reason you can’t use yours to keep water out. Keep your earbuds, iPod, phone, and other electronics safe and dry in these colorful, water-repellent bags.

The Perfect Lunch Box: Takenaka Bento Box, $19.99
This lunch box design features a dividing insert to keep foods separated and maximize space. Best of all, it’s both dishwasher- and microwave-safe!

The Perfect Catch-All: New Adventure Canvas Pouch, $18
Use this pouch to store anything that doesn’t fit into one of the categories above: keys, sunscreen, sunglasses, and more.

Welcome to summer.
