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 so 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 large Bogg Bag on Amazon will run you well over $100. 😳

With all of that said, we know you’re more than ready to get your summer adventures started so we’ve hand-picked some other highly rated bags that have some of the same features and you’ll be wanting to scoop them up in no time!


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

If we didn’t know any better, we’d think this was an actual Bogg Bag itself! Crafted with the same easy-to-clean waterproof material, this tote can do it all! Plus, the straps are removable and it even comes with a similar clip-on inner bag and grip bottom so it doesn’t easily tip.

If you’re obsessing over the Bogg Bags, we know you won’t find a better alternative than this!

Plus, if you really want to show off your personality, they even offer other styles like their smaller bags with prints. That said, even these bags are going out of stock quite frequently so don’t hesitate to scoop them up if interested!


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 too impatient for the Bogg Bags to come back in stock!

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. Target nailed it with this space-saving tote for $10.

Target has a beach-friendly bag that is affordable and is collapsible so it saves space too! It features easy-to-grab handles and lots of pockets to organize 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! You can grab a similar style in navy, too. Plus, for the super low cost, it’s worth grabbing a few for your besties.  😉


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

Buy it on Amazon$49.99

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! 


5. Fit everything in this FITFORT beach tote which even has a detachable cooler.

Buy it on Amazon$30.99+

Feeling like that Bogg Bag you’ve been obsessing over is missing something extra? I’d be willing to bet it’s a detachable cooler that will check off all the marks on your wishlist! 🙌

With the ability to detach the 12 can capacity cooler, you can easily run into the store without toting all your snacks and drinks with you. While at the same time, you’ll be perfectly prepared for all your picnics, barbecues, camping, swimming, road trips, vacations, and any other summer adventures around the corner.

The tote itself is easily foldable, fits 4 huge beach towels, is made of mesh so it’s easy to shake clean from sand. It’s even complete with a surplus of pockets for smaller essentials like sunscreen and sunglasses! Like I mentioned above, it’ll fit everything.


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.

    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!

    • Nik

      The smaller Boggs are cheaper than the large. So for a Simply Southern you buy a large for the same price as a small Bogg Bag.

    • Lisa

      I have been looking for weeks and every where says out of stock where can I find one

    • Courtney Roberts

      I just ordered a Bogg Bag on Hibbett Sport’s wesbsite! They offered free shipping and Klarna- 4 payments. I noticed they had leopard, pineapple, and tie dye. Saving for a Christmas gift for my oldest 🙂

    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!

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

    So the “Bogg bag” is a tote bag made out of crocs (shoes) material? I can’t believe the crocs company hasn’t made one yet? I know you can use them for anything, but how do you guys who have them ACTUALLY use them…as a purse, an extra bag for kids gear, or only at the beach/pool? These do look super fun and new!

    • Amy L.

      I use mine for lots: supplies for soccer tournaments, dance competition accessories, road trip goodies, gifts for PTO stuff, pool essentials, etc. There is also a Scout cooler that fits in it perfectly that can be used with it.

    • MommySpendsLess

      I had the same thought – I actually assumed it was made by Crocs when I saw the image.

      I can see how it would be useful for super messy activities but I have a zipper tote from 31 and a canvas tote from Lands End – both have tons of pockets, which I love. My 31 tote even has a bunch of exterior pockets, which I loved for keeping messy preschooler hands from reaching into the bag and getting everything else inside sandy, wet, covered in melted chocolate/Goldfish powder/etc. Now if they had bags like these with multiple compartments, I may be tempted.

    • gail

      I dint think they are made out if the same material as cross because I had some cross and they srink in the sun. I have a simply bag and it did not scrink

  5. Diana

    Do crocs jibbitz fit in those holes?? That would be awesome 🙂

    • christinabroome

      I think they’re smaller and run the risk of falling out. I had the same idea.

  6. Katibell

    Do cat and dog fur stick to this type of material? I bought a scout bag off of zulily and it is not good quality.

    • JenK

      I have a cat and and golden retriever in my house and I do not have any animal hair on my simply bag.

  7. Seana

    Personally, I don’t get the hype or price. I love my 31 large utility tote for the beach and other things. Reasonably priced and built to last. Super roomy and packs well.

    • JenK

      My reasoning is clean up… Go to the beach or ball park with this bag and get sand and dirt in it go home spray it out. I can’t stand getting dirt in a 31 tote.

  8. Chris

    Are they heavy? I have other totes that I like but with toddler grandchildren, I’m intrigued by this material. But not if the bag itself is heavy.

    • JenK

      It has a little weight to it but not bad heavy.

  9. JenK

    I bought my self the simply southern and my friend has the bogg brand. They only thing I can see that I like better about the bogg is my “screws” for the handle loosen easy. I have to tighten them every so often and I am afraid they will come apart while I am carrying it.
    As for other comments what the big deal is, it cleans up so easy! I would much rather take a water hoes to this bag and wash sand and dirt out of it rather then try to clean a typical bag that I would take to the beach or ball park.

  10. Sara

    I read this post and found a small one in a local store in Georgia today. Yay! They’re also getting large ones in soon and have a long waiting list for them. They’re a hot item for sure.

    the crocs shrink. The simply bag does not. I just used mine for 8 days at the beach. I did have to tighten my screws a few times. but I love the bag. It holds everything. I used the plastic insert to carry sand and shells. it didnot rip. and held 5pounds of shells and sand with no problem. I paid 60.00 for it.

  13. 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!

  14. 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!

  15. Lora

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

    • Kelsey Weddell

      My same thoughts!
