    I've tried a couple types of bags for swimming - swimming backpacks like the ones made by Speedo, mesh bags, and beach totes.  But this bag also works for anyone who likes going to the beach, goes to the gym, or to the pool.  That said, Speedo backpacks are still the best choice if you are cycling to your destinations (common sense).  Anyway, for me, a swimmer that drives to swim practice, this is a perfect bag.  Here are a few reasons why:

    1.  Size - this bag is very large.  It's big enough to fit a towel, flippers, multiple goggles, a kickboard, and a pull buoy.  Most pools have decent kickboards, so I usually don't need to bring one, but it's nice to have the extra room.

    2.  Construction - the construction of this thing is a best of both worlds - it's got structure and stability of a framed backpack, while being completely constructed out of a thick, durable mesh material.  It's very sturdy and wants to stand upright.  

    3.  Cool features

    First, the bottom area of the bag is actually not actually see-through, because the second layer of mesh cleverly works to conceal the contents near the bottom of the bag almost entirely.  So that means while it's completely breathable and drains water, etc, you're not letting the whole world see your boxers or underwear.
     Second, there is a nicely stitched-in metal loop for clipping your keys to inside the bag.  

     Third, there is a zip pocket (same material) inside for valuables like a cellphone or wallet.  It not a huge pocket, because it sits flush to the bag, but still very effective, since no one can see into the pocket (due to the thick, overlaid mesh).  

    All in all, this bag is definitely a buy if you're fed up with swimming bags, or are in the market for a high-quality, mesh gym or beach bag.

    I bought 2 bags like this a couple years ago - they were both larger, but this one is actually more user friendly.  It has more pockets and a zippered pocket inside.  I originally bought it as a swim bag to take to the gym and it works so well because you can put wet things in it and doesn't get stinky.  It works well as a beach bag because it is sturdy, durable and is great in the sand because it's mesh which doesn't matter if it gets wet. I never go on vacation without it. I bought this recent style for a baby shower gift to use in addition to a regular diaper bag.  You always need more tote bag capabilities and it works great in a car or trip to grandma's house because you can see what you have easily without having to dig in a deep dark bag. Also, due to the plastic type mesh, things don't slip out of the pockets because it creates a grip to keep things more secure than you would think.  LOVE LOVE THIS BAG - CAN YOU TELL?!!

    I use it for my gym bag and it holds all my stuff with a little room to spare!  The outer pockets keep everything in it's place and handy.  Made out of heavy mesh material and looks like it will wear like iron!  Wish I could get one in every color.  No negatives in my book!

    One of the best things about this bag is that it is large, heavy duty, and very sturdy.  But - that also makes it rather heavy!  It is a great carry-all.  I always start out with 4 beach towels, 2 pairs of goggles, in cases, 3 different kinds of sunscreen, and 2 pairs of kids watershoes.  Often we have several more things to add to the bag and everything fits.  The bag stands up and stands open on it's own without flipping over so that makes it easy to pack.  However, as stated, because it is a heavy, sturdy, mesh material it is a little on the heavy side and probably not comfortable to carry on your shoulder for a long time on a long journey.  Overall I'm completely pleased with this bag!!

    We were looking a beach bag that can fit many things without having to dig deep.  This bag is perfect! you can fit many towels and have all your creams, combs, etc. on the outside pocket. No digging!!  Love it!  We highly recommended it!  It's also very sturdy!

    This bag is perfect for trips to the beach or to carry to your ports when on a cruise (which is what I used it for).  I stuffed beach towel, swimsuit change of clothes and shoes,  purchases, etc and it held it all.  Great quality and sturdy. Highly recommend

    This bag is awesome!   I was using a bag I had that had no pockets to go to the y!   I couldn't find anything!   The side pockets are awesome, now I know where my lock is!   My cell phone, etc!   Just wish it fit a little better in the locker?

Saltwater Canvas

Helen Langone, owner of Saltwater Canvas, was tired of always having to store her gym stuff in soggy grocery bags and rigid baskets, that’s when she came up with the great idea of cylindrical mesh bags.

Cylindrical mesh bags are a clever invention that has been gaining widespread attention since it was first created and sold in 1991. The cylindrical mesh bags are perfect for the beach, gym, shower, or just about any water occasion. The weatherproof mesh bag has 4 pockets, including a specialized pocket for your razor, comb and toothbrush.

No more having to deal with slimy wet items with a mildew odor, because cylindrical mesh bags are custom designed to give you easy access to all your showery necessities.
