We wanted a nice easy bag for the beach, that had no zips that needed to be closed, but with two pockets to hold valuables or sunglasses and somewhere to put keys without having to empty the bag, as they would invariably fall to the bottom of a bag. A lot of towels and chilled bottles of rose wine can also be carried in this bag.
It doubles up as a travel bag as it confirms to the IATA standard and will gather looks of disbelief from airline check in staff, but it is exactly the size stipulated by IATA. It is in other words, "Big Ass".
The fabric has been pre-washed in an industrial washing machine, to remove fabric shrinkage, so that when this bag is washed when it is soiled, it won't shrink or change shape. All the internal seams have been taped so there will be no fraying of cloth that could ultimately lead to a seam failing. This is probably one of the lightest holdalls in the market and also makes a great additional bag for souvenirs and other unexpected purchases when traveling.
Made of washed pure cotton canvas, outside of Porto, Portugal.
