Highly rated Bogg Bag-inspired totes that are better for your wallet.

We’ve found the perfect totes.

If you’ve ever heard of Bogg Bags, it’s likely you already know just how popular these totes are. Known for being waterproof, incredibly easy to clean, durable, and even tip-proof, these bags are truly unlike anything else on the market!

Their perforated exterior design makes them really versatile & functional. You can add their included clear snap insert bags (perfect for your small belongings) and even add your personal style through clip-on keychains & charms off Etsy. 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?

Well, the price & availability make them nearly unreachable for most people. 😬 If you’ve gone to buy your own Bogg Bag once before, it’s likely you’ve noticed they’re out of stock quite frequentlythat’s because they’re THAT popular! And if not, you may have had a bit of sticker shock as the current price for just one XL Bogg Bag on Amazon will run you nearly $150. 😳

Whether you’re heading for a tropical winter vacation or planning for next summer already, try these dupes that are just as good (and one to avoid!):

1. The Simply Southern Tote is an exact replica without the huge price tag.

Buy it on Amazonfrom $72.99 shipped

If we didn’t know any better, we’d think this was an actual Bogg Bag itself! In fact, they’ve become so popular they’re even becoming hard to come by so make sure to browse all of the Simply Southern tote listings on Amazon to get your hands on one before they’re gone.

Crafted with the same easy-to-clean waterproof material, these totes can do it all! The straps are even removable and it comes with a similar clip-on inner bag and grip bottom so it doesn’t easily tip. Want to really show off your personality? They even offer other styles like their smaller bags with prints.

If you’re obsessing over the Bogg Bags, we know you won’t find a better alternative than this! Erica on our team purchased one and can attest to the quality — and you won’t want to miss her non-recommended brand at the end of this post!

2. Personalize one of these waterproof SunBaggs.

Buy it on Amazon$99.50

Okay, so I realize this bag is definitely on the steeper side price-wise. However, with not having any holes around the exterior for sand to get through and the ability to customize your own handles (at no additional cost), I thought this was such a great option if you’re still wanting the Bogg Bag look for a little less.

Plus, it’s made with the same material as Bogg Bags for easy cleaning, the handles are removable, and it’s complete with a grippy bottom to make it tip-proof and slip-proof.

3. Walmart sells the most affordable Time & Tru Bogg Bag dupe around for under $25!

You read that right — under $25! While we’ve been having a hard time spotting these Bogg Bag dupes in-store, reviews are already flowing in raving about them. And check out those bold summer-ready hues! 🤩

All that said, while purchasing, you might want to pick up a small tube of super glue as it sounds like the handles have a tendency to unscrew. But for $24.95 + a $3 tube of glue, this is still one of the cheapest dupes we’ve seen.

“I like this but…be warned the handles come off often, they are screwed on in the inside, I checked them all and found them loose so I tightened them all and while I was out the handled fell off again, I finally used E6000 and glued them, no more problems yet! I do like the bag!” – Walmart reviewer, Lolli

4. This machine-washable tote is over $200 cheaper than the identical one at Neiman Marcus.

Buy it on Amazon$29.99+

Not only is this an extremely practical bag, but it’s also super affordable compared to the identical Neiman Marcus tote which happens to be a whopping 300+ dollars! 😱 Plus, you won’t have to worry about sand, spills, or toting around all your kiddo’s snacks because it’s even machine washable!

You can even get 3 different styles in one with this bag thanks to the snaps making it the most versatile bag on our list. 🙌

Here a similar brand that’s offers a different variety of colors at just over $40! 

5. Amazon nailed it with this trendy space-saving tote under $20.

Buy it on Amazon – $19.90

Amazon has a trendy beach-friendly bag that is affordable, comes in 13 different colors, and is collapsible so it saves space too! It features easy-to-grab handles and an interior pocket to organize all of your beach essentials. In fact, it would even be the perfect bag for storing bath toys, groceries, or whatever else you want to carry around in style!

6. You won’t mind carrying everyone’s stuff with this super lightweight SCOUT beach tote.

Although this bag is extremely lightweight, it’s crafted with a super durable bottom so you can fill it with all your boating or beach essentials. Plus, it’s made of water-resistant material, similar to a tarp, so it’s easy to keep clean, yet amazingly still holds its shape when wet.

Even better, if you’re needing an even larger size or a smaller tote for your next day trip, they’ve got every size imaginable on their Amazon store.

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

Erica’s sister-in-law was wanting one of these bags so for her baby shower gift, she decided to scoop one up to fill with baby essentials. She purchased the one by Simply Southern from Amazon (our #1 pick!) and this Crown & Ivy brand from Belk. Unfortunately for Erica, this dupe experience taught her the lesson of “you get what you pay for” as the 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 the bag spilling everywhere (while carrying her baby no less!) completely put a sour taste in her mouth for this dupe.

If it’s any consolation, the Belk customer service team was so kind and compassionate towards this unpleasant experience, and 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!

Psst… do you still feel like you need a Bogg Bag?

Amazon has some Small Bogg Bags & XL Bogg Bags in stock (though certain colorways are at a significantly higher price). They can also be found at Dillard’s for $90 for all colors. But know that no matter where you purchase, these popular bags don’t stay in stock long so don’t wait around if you still decide you need to get your hands on one.

These would make some incredible gifts for anyone!

    I have the green baby bogg bag in your photo and my husband got it for $57 plus shipping. If you look you can find them at regular price.

    • Amy L.

      Agree! Many stores are now fully stocked and even offer occasional discounts+free shipping.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh cool! Thanks for sharing, Kelli!

  2. Heather

    I bought the Simply Southern replica for $55 with free shipping from Gilk’s. Arrived in 3 days. I couldn’t ever find Bogg in stock. I love my Simply bag!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Nice buy, Heather!

  3. Megan T.

    Bogg bags are the best! I’m not even sure WHY I am obsessed but I am 😂

  4. Mama6

    I LOVE my Scout bag! I use it every day and it seems to last forever 🙂

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      SWEET! Glad to hear how well it has held up for you! Thanks for sharing!

  5. ilovescott

    I emailed the bogg bag company because they are always sold out. Heads up, they restock the website every Monday at 9 am est. I was able to snag a large bogg bag that way:)

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Awesome tip! Thank you!

  6. Lora

    I’m thinking these bags could be useful for shopping at Aldi. Anyone use it for that purpose?

    • Kelsey Weddell

      My same thoughts!

  7. Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

    Thank you, SamShops!

  8. stephanie323

    If you have a Palmetto Moon store they carry Bogg and Simply southern bags!! They constantly restock them too. Sign up for their rewards program and you get a text when they restock popular items.

  9. Peggy

    Bogg regularly gives stock to smaller retailers so you can easily find bags that way – check their Instagram and website to find which retailers have them near you or online to ship to you. The prices on Amazon are ridiculously marked up, but I have seen a few pieces go on sale here and there. I personally love Callahans Gifts and usually buy online there; super fast shipping. If you set alerts on their Instagram to be notified of new posts, or any other small retailer that carries them and posts restocks, you can easily snag a Bogg and accessories for retail price. You’ll be supporting both small businesses – which includes the original designer! There’s a reason they’re so popular too – the Bogg quality and customer service is top notch! Sometimes it’s worth paying a bit more for.

    • Ana

      Thank you for sharing, I had added the baby bogg to my amazon cart when I start reading all these posts and I found the palm pink in Callahans Gift for $40 even with the shipping it was still less than amazon. Can’t wait to use this summer.

      • Alli (Hip Sidekick)

        We’re glad you grabbed a great deal Ana — you’re welcome!

  10. Debbie Hillebrand

    Local small business in my city, “Silver Collections” has Bogg bags as well. I believe also Simply Southern. She ships too. Check it out on Facebook.

  11. Kay Mae

    Yeah, I’ma gonna stick to my 99¢ IKEA bags. The Price is right, they are tough as nails in mostly waterproof and if they get super gross I don’t feel too bad throwing them out.

    • Tanya

      Yep. I was about to post something similar, Kay Mae. Those $.99 TJ Maxx bags are huge.

  12. Amy L.

    Be to follow Carolina Moon Outfitters on IG and FB. They have occasional great offers on Bogg Bags.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thank you, Amy L.!

  13. Jan

    I just looked at these for fun. I cannot justify the price but I am surprised how depending on color there can be a huge price difference!

  14. Kimberann1

    I found one at the goodwill for less than $5! 😀

  15. Amber

    Can you please find us some beach towel deals? Getting antsy and need some for Easter baskets.

  16. Jill P.

    I just purchases 2 Bogg bags at a Hallmark Store to use for my girls as Easter baskets (they are 26 & 24) they both boat frequently so I thought that would be a good “base”& will also fill with fun stuff. I’m excited to give them!

  17. fworl949

    Bogg’s also make great reusable shopping bags – they can handle a ton of canned goods or heavy products and can be sanitized 🤓

  18. jennifer-65

    Other platforms have them also, eBay, Poshmark, Mercari….

  19. Jennifer

    These are super cute, but I think I’ll keep using my repurposed diaper bag until it wears out. Tons of pockets to keep stuff in, and it keeps me from spending anymore money right now. 😂

  20. Cristine

    I love my scout bags for the beach but I might need a bogg or simply southern for the pool 😁

  21. Prince courage

    This is nice, I think I will need one soon.

  22. Kelly

    Thanks! Perfect birthday gift for my pool and beach loving daughter in law!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      How sweet! Such a great gift! You’re so welcome, Kelly! 💞🎉

    I didn’t know anything about Boggs Bags until this post. But I am a bag, of any kind, junkie! I’d love to have a fashionable bag like these for our yearly cruise. So do they fold for packing in a suitcase?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey there! The bag itself is bendable but still very “structured”. The straps will fold or bend down. Be sure to check the images in the reviews as you’ll see more variations of the bag, it’s material and straps.
      Also, here are the dimension – 15″ x 13″ x 5.25″ Hope this is helpful!

  25. Sara

    Am I the only one who sees a croc (shoe) in bag form?!? When I saw the thumbnail, I thought either the brand Croc put out a bag or this was a gag post.

  26. vcraft22

    FYI— bogg bags are no longer $75 at Dillards— they are $90 now

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks, vcraft22! I’ve updated the pricing! 🤗

  27. Gigi

    I got a pink bag at Hobby Lobby several years ago for the same attributes you describe with the Bogg bags. I know I paid under 15 and it has held up amazingly well. It doesn’t have holes all over but has some flowers along the top instead. A few of the flowers have holes in the center. I would share a picture but I don’t see how. Maybe they still carry them.

    • Ana

      You can’t post a picture, but you can post a link in the comments and we will be able to see it 🙂

  28. Barbara

    I’m sad to see the news about the Crown and Ivy bag because I bought 2 (one for mysrlf and one as a gift) based on the promotion I saw on Hip 2 Save.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      So sorry, Barbara. Thanks for commenting. Be sure to reach out to customer service as Erica did if you also have any issues with that one. ❤️

  29. Teresa Cameron

    Is there anyway to find out which particular color the green ‘Bogg bag’ is in the picture above? Is it the regular GREEN or a different green?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey there! The one in the main image above is the Aqua. 💖

      • Teresa Cameron

        The bag right underneath the tag line that reads “so what’s not to love?” The main photo of the ‘simply’ bag looks aqua but the original Bogg bag under that tag looks green, just double checking because that’s the color I want 😉
        Thank you!

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          You’re welcome, Teresa! There is a “Kiwi” color available for number one above that is more green, if that would be helpful.🤗

  30. Leah

    I super glued my Crown and Ivy straps immediately after I got them! It has held up great and don’t have to worry about straps coming off!!!

  31. Dru Heggen

    Ordered one off a site on Facebook-never received it&

  32. Carole

    I have the one from belk and it’s held up like a champ. I’ve had it for about two months and it’s been to water parks, beaches, and on a cruise. I love that the straps are removable for when I want to pack it in my luggage.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      That’s awesome to hear, Carole! Thanks for letting us know how well yours has held up! 🙌💕

  33. GTgrad

    I had the same problem with the Crown & Ivy bag the first time I used it. I discovered that the handle was twisting, and I was able to get it back on the right way and make sure the straps were always up before I picked it up. It has not happened again after the first couple of times. I hope that helps!

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for letting us know about your experience and tip! So happy that it was an easy/quick fix! ❤️

  34. Tammy Ward

    I have the Crown & Ivy and mine handle kept popping off and getting twisted. My 10 year old niece told me, you have to screw the little knob until its tight. Easy Peasy and held up wonderfully at the beach. I keep it in my truck and put my grocery bags in it.. heavy duty. But yes tell your person that the little knobs screw in to tighten the handle and it will not fall off.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the heads up, Tammy! I’ll be sure to pass that helpful tip along! 💕

  35. Aerokiki

    Ok so there is a store in the Columbus, Ohio area that I just was made Aware of that sells the simply southern bags. They also ship and like just doing a few simple things you can immediately earn free shipping. The bags are $63.95 and this coupon may work on that as well. I am about to order mine. https://i.refs.cc/nC73O8hu?smile_ref=eyJzbWlsZV9zb3VyY2UiOiJzbWlsZV91aSIsInNtaWxlX21lZGl1bSI6IiIsInNtaWxlX2NhbXBhaWduIjoicmVmZXJyYWxfcHJvZ3JhbSIsInNtaWxlX2N1c3RvbWVyX2lkIjoxMjcwNzgxMDEwfQ

  36. Jennifer

    If you are near a Shoe Dept store, they sell the big Bogg bags for $75 and the small ones for $54. If they don’t have it in stock, they can order it for you. when I look at their website online, it’s listed for more, but if you place the order in store it’s cheaper plus there’s free shipping.

    I also have a simply southern one from Amazon. It was still pretty expensive, but I can tell you they are worth every penny. It is so nice and convenient to have this kind of bag to haul beach/pool toys, sunscreen and towels.

    If you are curious but hesitant due to price, I would buy anyway!!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for your helpful comment and review, Jennifer! Good to know you’ve been pleased with your Simply Southern bag! 💖🙌
