Now that Memorial Day is behind us, we’re all thinking summer, beach, ice cream, and swimming. We’re stocking up on sunscreen and beach towels, shaking off the flip-flops, and buying the trendiest bathing suits so we’re ready to hit the sand running.
Of course, all that gear can be pretty hard to carry to and from the beach — especially if you’re someone who plans on going a lot. So what’s the best way to carry everything without losing your sunglasses (or your mind)?
Dezzio bags are cleverly designed to help you take beach trips in stride, and they look the part, too. Both the “Signature” and “Classic” styles are sailor-striped for a nautical touch, and both are made from a durable canvas that’s sure to withstand years of schlepping and stuffing. Real leather straps and piping top them off for a quality finish.
The Dezzio designers obviously put a lot of thought into these bags. Each one boasts a special pocket for your phone and another to keep your flip-flops away from everything else. You’ll also be happy to hear that these bags come with a cooler pocket, as well as a handy bottle opener so you can open whatever’s in that pocket when you’re on the go. You can even stash your shades in a built-in sunglasses case that’s been padded for extra protection.
An attached strap holds your rolled-up beach towel to keep your hands free and give you more in-bag space, and the bag’s key clip makes finding your keys at the end of the day an absolute breeze. Oh, and there’s a pocket for that all-important sunscreen.
Each bag also comes with a reusable, washable “eco-bag” so you can keep your salty, sandy, wet clothes away from your dry t-shirts and shorts.
But wait! There’s more! Although it’s good to go no-tech when you’re supposed to be spending a relaxing day at the beach, we know that those digital habits are tough to break. If you’re guilty as (ahem) charged, then you’ll really appreciate the bag’s phone pocket, tablet pocket, and pouch for your charger. There’s also a pocket that fits your favorite magazine, if you’re someone who likes to read as you sunbathe.
The pièce de résistance? Two USB ports are built into the Dezzio bags, allowing you to charge two of your devices at the same time. Simply connect them to the power bank, and you’ll be up and running in a flash.
We love that the bag is water-resistant: it’s made from 100-percent cotton canvas and has been covered with a special water-repellant coating. The lining is 100-percent waterproof polyester, and a layer of padding between the shell and the lining adds heft and durability to the entire bag. We also give top marks to the thoughtful feature that allows sand to trickle out before you put the bag in the car — just unzip the base to reveal an inner mesh bottom!
While Dezzio bags are obviously perfect for the beach, they still hold their own on other summer day trips and train rides. You might even rock one as a stylish, functional gym tote.
