The good folks at LAYERxlayer were kind enough to send over one of their new beach-tastic Cinch Totes, and I’m happy to report that it is an absolute beauty of a bag. Meticulously handcrafted from American grown and woven denim (natural for the body, indigo for the bottom reinforcement and details), the tote is uncommonly tough, and yet, surprisingly lightweight (always a nice feature when it comes to portage, especially summer-specific). What’s most remarkable though, are the many, many details – both construction and cosmetic – found throughout. Lxl is a brand that has built its reputation on sweating the small stuff, dutifully examining every inch of their goods to find yet more opportunities for innovation. And that approach is clearly evident in the Cinch Tote.
All in all, I couldn’t ask for a better beach bag. It’s strong enough to handle the sun, salt and sand, and yet, light enough (both in weight and appearance) to still feel totally summery. I’m excited to see how it ages over the next few years. And, I like knowing that it’ll last that long (it really is exceptionally well-made). If you’re looking to invest in a summer bag that you can plan on handing down to your kids, then I highly recommend the Cinch Tote from LAYERxlayer. Thanks guys!
