Default Best Family Beach Bag on the "O" list, anyone have it?

I saw the Whale Mesh Beach Bag on the "O" list as the best family beach bag, wondering if anyone has one and can recommend it. It is about $40 so not sure I want to pay that for a mesh beach bag unless it is worth it.
Thanks

Sorry to be dumb, but what is the "O" list?

All then by all means I just have to get one...lol

Actually my friends and I (on my mommy board) are all obsessed by this offer right now...3 random bags for $10

http://www.yakpak.com/catalog/partde...spx?PartNo=WEB

We got the original link off of Baby Center (one of the moms on my group always monitors the Baby Center bargain board for us...lol) You can see some of the random bags that other moms got here...
http://boards.babycenter.com/n/pfx/f...465&tid=119591

I ordered my Yak Packs on Friday and they are suppose to be delievered tomorrow so I have NO idea which "random" ones I got. I just love surprises...lol

Default On backorder

Michelle,
I just ordered one--I figured "hey, what the heck!" Mine is on backorder, so we'll see how long it takes them to either get more gear to send or, send me a note saying that it will not be fulfilled.

Thanks for sharing this deal--it was kind of fun!! Since I am buying all of my own Christmas gifts (my DH is so NOT creative) this will be my Holiday surprise.

Let me know what you got!!

--J

I just got mine! I got a skull messenger bag. A bunny camo bag (my mommy friend was dying for one of these so I have to give it to her...lol) and a green Dickies bag.

It was fun.

Cute bags, especially for $10!!
I decided to ditch the idea of a family beach bag and I went with something more stylish. I tried to attach a pic....not sure if it will work.

I'm trying to order some bags, but it won't let me... I get to the billing stage and it won't let me go any further... I've emailed them about it. It might have something to do with the fact that I have a US delivery address and a Canadian billing address... but $35 for delivery to Canada is just ridiculous when the rate to send it to the PO Box I have less than 100 miles away is only $5.50!!

Very cute! Good choice!

And to CanadianTwosome - I can tell you that it is ridiculous for those that live in Canada. Some of the mommies on my board tried to order them too and it was $35 for shipping. Just crazy.

$10 shipping, $25 to bribe the import officials.

Yeah, the customs regulations here are ridiculous. That's why we have the US PO Box! ha ha ha The best thing about it is that we let things accumulate a bit before making the drive down (about 1 1/2 hours each way), so when I get there, it's like Christmas because I forget some of the stuff is even there! ha ha ha I just went down on Friday to pick up the new dresses I bought for myself and my daughter for our cruise in January, and lo and behold there was a box there with some silk pajamas in it! ha ha ha

Canadian Twosome, if you don't mind me asking, what service do you use for this? I live near Buffalo and have been trying to find a PO box service in Buffalo for some time now!

Default On its way!

Silly me did not scroll down last time I posted here to see your bags! SO cute! It looks like they came in two business days (Fri to Tues)? I have only boys, so I'll be saving these for gifts for their little girlfriends' birthdays...(or myself, depending on how juvenile they look).

I got confirmation that mine shipped today. I can't wait to see what I got!

I read your posts yesterday and even though the 3 bags for $10 said backordered, I decided to try. There are 14 of us going cruisin in Feb., so I am sure someone will enjoy them. I was shocked this morning to see that they are already shipped to me. I'll let all of you know which ones I receive. My DD 11 is all excited.

Having been to the beach only 3 times during my adult life, I'm no expert. But I don't like mesh bags for the beach. The sand gets in and yes some of it gets back out but most of it doesn't. I used a regular bag on this last trip(my pool bag) and kept it zipped. Shook the sand out of anything before I put it back in. I have no sand in my bag. I do have some sand in my mesh snorkle bag.

Well, neither me nor my daughter are terribly excited by our three bags. Two dickies plain backpacks...one white and one black. The third is a yak pak messager bag...black with very large skulls on it. It was definitely fun waiting for it. I'm sure one of my kids or my friend's kids will want them. Can't wait to hear what everyone else received.
