The Ultimate Beach Tote

And properly stocked with the right gear.

Alexander Stein

Sun, sand and surf. Whether you plan on soaking in rays or catching that day’s swell, make sure you’re properly equipped for a day by the ocean. Start by keeping yourself protected with a good SPF and some UV, polarized lenses, and then pack the essentials: trunks and a towel, flip-flops and a hat. Invest in a sturdy, understated tote bag to stow your carry, and hit the road.

Joshu + Vela Boat Tote

Sized to carry everything you need for a day of adventure, this tote is your fair-weather go-to bag. After seasons of wear, this tote will develop a nice patina — an aesthetic badge of honor protected by Joshu + Vela’s lifetime warranty.
