Saltwater Canvas: The Beach Bag That You MUST Have!

If you’ve been reading Mommy of a Monster for any length of time, you know that my family gets together a lot…especially when the weather is nice (so that’s about 9 months out of the year here in So Cal!). I recently came across the opportunity to tweet about these SUPER COOL mesh bags that are sold by Saltwater Canvas. All I can say about these bags is that they are AWESOME!

Saltwater Canvas Beach Bags


I had the chance to review the Saltwater Canvas Whale Bag…the bag of all beach bags, I’m telling you! This weekend, it was 90 degrees here which equivilates to a pool party at my sister’s house. I shoved 4 oversized beach towels in the middle, with the girls’ cover-ups, hats, an extra change of clothes, and a change of clothes for Tater…and I could still have gotten more in there!  The pockets carried the sunblock, each kids’ sippy cup, and my water bottle.

This bag has 9 pockets, a carabiner for your keys, a secret zippered compartment on the inside, and colorful mesh that is weatherproof and super strong. The bag comes in a variety of 7 bold colors that won’t fade with age. Sand and water shake out easily, and the bag dries quickly. And it’s machine washable! This? Is the PERFECT beach bag!

My sister’s loved the bag. My sister-in-law loved the bag. And at $35.97 (and only $5 shipping!), it makes a perfect gift for anybody that’s on the go a lot and toting a lot of stuff around.


I was also lucky enough to get the Saltwater Canvas shower bag. This is perfect for college students at the dorm, gym members, and campers. We are camping this July, and I plan to take this bag with me to the public showers. It’s big enough to hold all of my stuff (and the kids’ stuff!), and it dries quickly. It stands up in the shower or squashes down flat for easy travel. It also comes in a variety of colors. And it’s a steal at only $15.97!

  2. That looks like a fantastic bag, off to check out the website! Thanks for sharing.
  3. I'm thinking I like the yellow whale bag best...looks perfect for a family of 5 and I bet you can see the yellow bag from far away while it sits on the sand and you are drifting out in the ocean!
  4. I only have about 75 days left until I head to sunny Mexico Beach in Florida, so this would be a perfect bag for our family trip to the beach!:)
  5. I just looked at the website and I think the pink whale bag would be perfect because 1) The girls out number the boys in my family and 2) It would be funny to see my manly man of a husband carry a pink bag! He would hate every minute of it and I would,of course, love every minute of it! ;)
  6. Its snowing here in MN today - winning this would lift my spirits for SURE!
  7. I love the whale bag in the PINK too awesome.
