The beach and plain cloth bags don’t work well together if you want your dry things to stay that way. A lot of people like to coordinate accessories like a beach bag with their swimwear, and with all the different styles in waterproof bags there are on the market today, matching things up should be no problem except for one. There are so many of them out there, choosing is the difficult part.More than clothes and maybe an extra towel need to stay dry at the beach. Most of us also keep valuables like cell phones, tablets, or snacks in our water proof beach bags to keep them safe and dry. Having to put damp clothes on at the end of the day would be uncomfortable but if your electronic devices get wet, that could be an expensive disaster.
There are things to consider other than style and matching when you shop for a waterproof dry bag. Think about your typical day at the beach and buy accordingly. Will you be swimming and lying on the sand, or will you be boarding a boat for fun in the water? If your plan is spending the day on a boat, there are water proof bags available that will float when dropped in the water, and some can even be totally submerged for a brief time with no dampness getting inside to damage the bags contents.
Of course, staying on the sand doesn’t guarantee the safety of what’s inside any bag unless it’s waterproof. Sturdiness should also be taken into account before you click to buy. Some beach bags are floppy and limp, some are stiff as plastic. You might not want to put a tablet or any other electrical device in a floppy bag that can’t stand on it’s own.
If it were a waterproof bag those items would stay dry regardless of the bags limpness but they need to be kept safe from sand as well and stiffer bags are better for that. There are beach bags out there that barely weigh a pound when empty, and also the kind that seem more like a piece of luggage than a simple bag, the choice is yours.
As stated above, with the nearly limitless supply of styles, colors and materials water proof bags are offered in, the hard part is choosing just one. However, they also come in many different prices, so there’s always the option of buying more than one when trying to decide between one or another.
