Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would definitely buy this again! Great product. Very pretty. Drawstring helps to keep items inside.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Still not sure how and when to use this bag. Not sure of purpose. netting idea is good if bag was large enough to put sandals, sunscreen, ID, reading material, water etc. I know it's not a beach bag. I see it as taking it down to the beach when staying at a hotel. Make lining like the inside of Carson . Needs a super safe place to store phone?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from kinda disappointed I like the fabric, but not thrilled with the bag, the netting is in the way to try and get into the interior pockets,(I will probably cut it out) there isn't a cardboard base at the bottom of the bag, so it sags when it is full and the strap is very comfortable, but it kept sliding and making itself longer then I had set it too. Love Vera bags, have purchased many and usually love them, overall disappointed with this bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the BEACH! Bought this for a couple trips to the beach. Looking for something not too large, but that would still hold what I needed. Took this bag to Hawaii and I loved the water resistance. It rained a lot on Kauai and I didn't have to worry about my bag getting soaked. The sand came off easily when the bag was dry. The strap was decent even when the bag was full it wasn't too uncomfortable. Loved the pocket on the front for my phone and the few interior pockets to help with organizing stuff. Plan to take it with my to Bermuda this fall and maybe Argentina as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Strap is a big problem! Nice size bag, but the strap is horrid! It will not stay at the length you select. It constantly slides down (gets longer) and is just a nuisance! I have the mini bag as well, and it doesn't have this problem.
