Bogg Bags are known for being waterproof, incredibly easy to clean, durable, tip-proof, and are truly unlike anything else on the market!

Their perforated exterior design makes them both versatile and functional with endless accessories from clear snap insert bags (perfect for your small belongings) to clip-on keychains and charms. Needless to say, all of their incredible features make them perfect for any adventure from the sandy beaches to a getaway girl’s weekend!

So what’s not to love?

The steep prices make them nearly unreachable for most people. 😬 Plus, you may have noticed they’re out of stock quite frequently. And if not, the price for a Bogg Bag could be inflated to nearly $190 for highly sought-after colors. 😳

Fortunately, there are a handful of Bogg Bag alternatives on the market. So skip the high price tags and opt for one of our top choices instead!

You may be familiar with Simple Modern and their popular Simple Modern tumblers which are a huge Hip team favorite too! They’re our top chic pick because, dare we say, the design is more refined and aesthetically pleasing. Plus, what rubber beach tote lover wouldn’t love to match their tumbler with their bag?! 🤩

The Simple Modern tote bags are even available at Target for $59.99 shipped.

Simple Modern rubber beach totes are remarkably similar and still offer all the same features as Bogg Bags including being waterproof and tip-proof. They offer plenty of stylish colors and three sizes. The extra large Simple Modern tote is more affordable than Bogg Bags too and maintains a steady price of $74.99.


2. Most Identical: Simply Southern Totes

Simply Southern, not to be confused with Simple Modern, is our most identical pick for Bogg Bag alternatives. They have all the same features including being tip-proof, and waterproof, and look the same aesthetically. Many of the Bogg Bag accessories are also compatible with Simply Southern.

You can grab a large Simply Southern tote starting at $74.98 (sometimes less) or they also offer a utility tote starting at just $64.30 shipped. They quickly became a top choice for many people seeking an affordable rubber beach tote so with increasing demand, you’ll see price fluctuations between different colors similar to Bogg Bags.

That said, every color is still more affordable and we love that they even had new and improved straps on some of their colors. Also, their large tote is slightly smaller than the large Bogg Bags but offers the same strap size. We’ve heard from reviewers that they much prefer the ease of the Simply Southern totes and the fact that they don’t get easily twisted.

“If you’re obsessing over the Bogg Bags, you won’t find a better alternative than this! I bought one for my sister-in-law and was so impressed with the quality I had to grab one too. Living in Florida, I use my Simply Southern tote all the time!” – Erica ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Temu Crossbody Bucket Bag – $13.38+ 

This cute mini tote is the #2 seller on Temu for women’s totes and bags so we have no doubt it’s worth your time. If you love the overall style of a Bogg Bag but want something small simply to tote around your phone, wallet, and lip balm, this couldn’t be more perfect! It’ll be ideal for taking along to adventure parks or running errands during the summer. We also think it’s a great gift idea for teens if you know one that likes to stay on top of trends. Plus, you can grab a color that’ll match their Crocs. 😉


One Bogg Bag alternative not to buy? Skip this replica by Crown & Ivy.

Erica’s sister-in-law wanted one of these bags as her baby shower gift. So she decided to scoop one up to fill with baby essentials. She purchased the Simply Southern Tote from Amazon (one of our top picks above). And this Crown & Ivy brand from Belk.

Unfortunately for Erica, this experience taught her the lesson of “you get what you pay for” as one side of the Crown & Ivy handle popped right off! 😣

She had hers filled with necessities for a fun day at the pool but the contents of this rubber beach bag spilled everywhere – while carrying her baby no less!

If it’s any consolation, the Belk customer service team was so kind and compassionate towards this unpleasant experience. They offered Erica a full refund without needing her to send back the bag. At least there was a silver lining to the not-so-stellar purchase but buyer beware as other reviewers of the Crown & Ivy bag have reported the same issue!

    I saw a Bogg look-alike at Sam’s for about $50. It looked just like the original one

    I am looking for a “Bogg” like aswell but with a black and white checkered board pattern. In all of your research did you or have you seen one? I have a photo of one if that would help. I can send you the photo if that may help?

    Thank you and hope to hear from you.

    I just got one from Bloomingdale’s Friends and Family sale (25%off). I also signed up for emails which gave me another 15% off and shopped through Rakuten for 10% cash back!

    • Trish (Hip Sidekick)

      Sweet! So glad you were able to score the additional savings on your new bag, Shana! 🙌💓

  6. Eisha

    I got one at Simply Southern last October for $20 on sale! My mom asked for one for Christmas so I snagged one for her but had to go back and get one for myself! The accessories intended for BOGG bags (jibbit-style charms, clips, etc.) fit perfectly in the holes of my SS one!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      SO cool! Awesome that the accessories fit that one so well! Thanks for sharing! ❤️🙌
