I bought this bag for a friend's birthday. She loved it so much she immediately turned it into her new pool bag and we took it with us to the pool that afternoon. It did great even considering my boyfriend spilled a drink on it in the first two minutes we were out (messy boys!), it wiped off just like it would a raincoat! I'm hoping for a good coupon or sale so I can buy myself one, and similar items for my friends and family.
