Color is fairly accurate in photo, though you get the impression it is more of a light denim for the straps, etc.. Really it is more of a light bluish aqua. Nice beachy color. The entire outside of bag is mesh, both sides, with a zipper at the top of each side, turning the mesh on both sides into very large pockets. The mesh covers the canvas of the inner bag. This could be very handy for storing your sunscreen and such, where you can see it. However, if you want to store wet things in the mesh, they will soak the inner canvas, which is cotton, and it will stay wet for awhile. Since it is advertised as a beach tote, I thought it worthwhile to point this out--something other than cotton canvas would dry faster or they could have a lined pocket, but this bag does not. It also does not have any interior pockets, just the main bag. I thought it would be taller, but it is not a bad size, just not quite as large as I had hoped. It is longer than it is tall. The straps are a good length for putting over your shoulder--not too long but easy to get over your shoulder. I think for this price, it will make a decent beach bag.
Best Uses: Beach tote, Shopping Tote
Cons: No small pockets, not fast-drying
Pros: Cute Colors, Good Over-shoulder Length, Sturdy
