I took the cutest straw bag on our trip to the Bahamas last year – unfortunately I overloaded it and the handles came off mid trip! I’ve learned my lesson, and for my travels this year I’m bringing the St. Charles Yacht Tote from Barrington Gifts instead!
The Barrington Gifts St. Charles Yacht Tote combines durability with a gorgeous customizable design. We tend to carry around a LOT of things on our resort holidays (to save us from taking multiple trips back to our room), and the St. Charles Yacht tote has space for everything! It’s made of sturdy materials so you don’t have to worry about overloading the bag – and it folds flat so it’s easy to put in your suitcase. Here are some of its specifications:
- Dimensions: 27″L X 15″H X 11″D with a 9″ strap
- Composition: Weather-resistant Nylon Canvas with Leather Accents and a Poly Twill lining
- Customization: So many prints and monogram styles to choose from. I went for a beachy pink palm print with a pink and white monogram stripe.
The St. Charles Yacht Tote is the next step up size-wise from the St. Anne’s Tote, which I’ve owned for 2 years now. Here’s a comparison pic of them together. With regards to capacity, the St. Charles Yacht Tote is 27″L X 15″H X 11″D while the St. Anne’s Tote is 20″L X 13″H X 5″D. They both have a 9″ strap drop, making it easy to carry the tote on your shoulder or your arm. They also come in zipped versions – if that works better for your travel needs (i.e. for security reasons or to prevent contents tipping out).
I have so many plans for my St. Charles Yacht Tote! Along with using it at the beach/resort, the St. Charles Yacht Tote is the perfect overnight bag – especially for road trips. It holds EVERYTHING – my laptop, camera, chargers, clothes, toiletries and even has space left over for drinks and food! It’s easy to reach into and grab what I need during our road trip – and I place a shawl across the top to keep everything safely inside.
