Puddle-proof base.
Made in Canada, on Vancouver Island.

Upcycled Marina Bag


Boating, grocery shopping, the pool or the beach. Upcycled/repurposed sail cloth and our ‘puddle proof base’ make this a great everyday bag for someone who is occasionally out in the elements.

Carrying Modes:
  • Hand Tote: molded handles for comfy carrying.
  • Shoulder Bag: dual shoulder straps to distribute the load.
  • X-Body: ample length adjustable strap with shoulder pad.


What’s New?  For 2022 We’ve added inner sleeves to keep tall things protected and out of the way.  We also added a padded “sit upon” so you always have a warm dry place to sit.  The sit upon stows outside the bag keeping dirt and moisture from entering the bag.  The sit upon also adds padding for the wearer and protection for electronics etc.  The sit upon is made of water proof materials (closed cell foam, corrugated Coloplast sheet, and water resistant fabric).  Perfect for the beach, wet benches, sit-ins, and picnics in the grass.
