QOGiR Neoprene Multipurpose Beach Bag Tote Review

This post may contain Amazon affiliate links and as an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

The online marketplace has now been flooded with so many cheap products that it difficult to find durable products that can last you a long time.

It’s as if most products today on Amazon are made using the cheapest materials available to sell them as cheap as possible. Many would argue that this is actually good for the consumers because to them, “competition is always good.”

While that statement makes perfect sense, it’s not as simple as it would lead you to believe. There are actually a lot of negatives that comes with extreme competition.

Off the top of my head, it has become harder to get quality items because the market is saturated with cheap ones. And we know that cheap items usually are the bestsellers. This in turn, pushes the ‘better’ items to page 2 or beyond.

Now, in this review, we are going to review one of the ‘cheaper items’ on Amazon in the category of tote bags. Relatively speaking to other items in the category, it’s not exactly cheap.

A more apt description is it is priced in the mid-level. The name of the product is QOGiR Neoprene Multipurpose Beach Bag Tote with Inner Zipper Pocket.

The main reason why I chose to review this product is I want to show you that it is still possible to find good items on Amazon if you look hard enough.

As I’ve said, Amazon is littered with cheap items now and if you don’t do your research right, you will end up with a dude product that you’ll just throw out in one use. My goal is to help you determine which items are worth your money. Let’s start.

Pros & Cons of QOGiR Neoprene Multipurpose Beach Bag Tote

This is the part I like writing the most. This is where I put all the things that stand outs from this product whether good or bad.

The reason why I list things for both is I want to contrast the positives and negatives to give you a much fairer assessment.

Too many reviews nowadays focus on showcasing the features of the product without actually talking about its faults. In my opinion, that’s now the best way to write a review.

Let’s start with the Pros.

Pros

Available In 11 Colors

It’s always nice to see items that are available in many different colorways.

I know plenty of products that purposely only offer their products in popular colors like black, white, and grey.

From a logistics standpoint, this makes sense since those are the colors that sells the most, but in my opinion, that severely limits the consumer options which is crucial to growing a business.

I like that this company opt to make this tote bag available in different colors.

There are a few colorways in there that even boast some stylist prints. It’s one of those bags that can offer something for anybody.

Perfect Size, Available In Different Sizes

This bag is available in 2 sizes which I think is sufficient enough given that even their large size is good enough for most tasks.

The large size measures up at 14”Lx12.5”Hx10”W true to size. To get a better idea if this size is large enough for you, you should get a measuring tape or get a similarly-sized bag.

For the X-Large size, the dimensions are 17”Lx13”Hx11”W which is not that much bigger than the large one but it does feel a bit larger on hand especially when stuffed with your things.

In my opinion, the large one would be enough for most but it totally depends on how you are planning on using it.

Great Material Choice For Easy Cleanup

This bag is made from neoprene material. This material is easy to clean and quick to dry, a good combination for a bag that is made for the beach.

If you actually feel this bag in your hands, you can tell that its materials are of high quality. It’s thicker than your average tote bag while being flexible enough to fold into a smaller size.

1-Year Guarantee (100% Replacement Warranty/Money Back)

Now, I’ve never requested a money back from this company so I don’t really have a good idea of how legitimate their claim is.

What I can tell you is having a warranty in place, even just a short one, is better than having a warranty that is written vaguely.

I’ve seen too many products with warranties all over the place that you are almost forced to sue the company to get a chance at a replacement item.

I like that this company provides a short and sweet warranty policy for this item. It would’ve been perfect if the warranty extended for longer but 1 year is fine, too.

The longer warranties are usually reserved for bigger and more expensive items like luggage bags, for instance.

Extra Movable Bottom Board

Most tote bags have soft bottoms which means that it can’t hold onto items that should be transported upright.

This QOGiR includes a movable hard bottom board in case there’s a need for that. This is perfect if you want to carry items that will spill over when moved sideways.

It is also very handy when carrying plenty of food items and beverage. It’s a cool add-on that not a lot of bags have.

Cons

The Soft Fabric Material Is Not For Everyone

This is categorized as a beach bag but it certainly doesn’t feel and look like it.

For one, the material is actually on the soft side of things. It feels more a back pack than a tote bag, material-wise.

Now, I am not saying that this bag isn’t a capable beach bag. It is. It’s just it doesn’t look the part.

I think this should’ve been marketed more as a multi-functional bag which it truly is.

You can take this bag for shopping, work, gym, light travel, among many other things.

Reports Of Missing Zipper Heads

Out of the 1000 reviews, I’ve read around 10 complaints about zipper heads missing. Now, this isn’t a significant number but it is still a pattern.

This should be covered by the warranty under factory defect but not a lot of buyers even use the warranty policy.

Not Waterproof

Given that this bag is marketed as a beach bag, you should at least expect a level of water-proofness to it. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case here.

It can protect from a spill of water but if it came in contact with a small puddle of water, it will soak that right into the fabric.

If you are planning on bringing this to the beach, just make sure you don’t bring it in with you in the waters (common sense, duh).

I get the feeling that this beach bag is designed be just sit in the sand part of the beach which is perfectly okay. It would’ve been nicer to have this item waterproofed though.

Quality Rating

This item is not exactly the cheaper choice in its category. As I’ve said, it sits in the middle of the pack. I think it’s priced alright considering the overall quality of the item.

For comparison, tote bags are usually priced at around $15 – 25. Some could even go as low as $10. I won’t feel very confident recommending sub-$12 tote bags though. This bag is priced at ~$35, which is a bit higher than normal but is definitely not the most expensive.

As such, it is expected to have better quality, which it has. The craftsmanship on this bag is solid. In particular, I am a fan of the material choice which are woven perfectly together.

The only real downside is the bag is not fully water proof. If it had been made water proof, I would’ve given this bag a solid 5 stars. As it stands, a 4-star rating would be more fitting.

Size Rating

This QOGiR Multipurpose Beach Tote Bag comes in 2 sizes, large and extra-large. The large size would suffice for most of us but it’s always great to have the option to go one size up.

What I love about the size of this item is you can make it smaller by tightening the shoulder straps which is a feature I haven’t seen on other bags yet. It’s like you’ve been given a smaller sizing option.

If you fully open up this bag, it is surprisingly large. It even has a removable bottom board if you need additional support when carrying items that could spill over.

Off the top of my head, this is great if you are carrying cupcakes or food items that have fillings on top. You can’t carry those items inside a standard tote bag.

The sizing of this item is perfect. It is true to size as well. What you see is what you get. This warrants a 5-star rating for me.

Feature Rating

There are a lot of noteworthy features here that you can’t see in other tote bags.

This bag can be folded into something smaller in case you want to bring it as a backup bag for your travels. It can function as a multipurpose bag.

I’m honestly surprised it’s being branded as a beach tote bag since it does not look like your average beach tote bag. I guess that’s because it’s the category where it sells the most.

Another thing that I love about this bag are the big pouches inside, complete with zippers and additional layer for protection.

Most tote bags don’t have pockets inside which means that your items are mushed together inside. Having a separate pocket for your smartphone, for instance, is definitely a welcome feature.

The only thing I wished that this bag has is the water resistant feature. For a beach bag, it is surprisingly easy to get wet. Don’t get me wrong, it still offers a level of protection against water but it’s not enough in my opinion. 4 stars.

Brand Rating

QOGiR is the name of this brand. It’s not a popular brand. In fact, this is actually the first time I’ve seen this brand name. I don’t even know how to pronounce the name. Q-O-G-iR?

Beyond the unique name, I really can’t say anything much about this brand. Little is known about this company. If you do research outside of Amazon, you will find that they don’t even have their own webpage which is quite unusual.

If I could take a guess, I’m thinking that this is an imported brand from another country.

One thing is for certain though – they make some of the most stylist bags on Amazon. Their items aren’t exactly China-cheap, or even Amazon cheap.

They are priced fairly, in my opinion. You should definitely take a look at their lineup to see the overall quality of their items, aesthetic-wise.

But as far as my research, I am confident enough to say that QOGiR is one of the better brands out there. They have some of the most stylish bags in the medium range. This is 4.5 stars for me.

Final Verdict on QOGiR Neoprene Multipurpose Beach Bag Tote with Inner Zipper Pocket (Black, Large)

This bag is one of the better-looking tote bags out there. It is surprisingly stylish which you can’t say for most bags in this category.

It is also offered in plenty of colorways which means that you will have something perfect for your taste.

It is a well-made bag that is perfect for all types of occasion. It is being marketed as a beach bag but I’m sure that it will sell alright had it been marketed as a multi-purpose bag. It’s a really stylish bag.

This has quickly become my favorite tote bag out of all the tote bags I’ve reviewed. Sure, it’s a bit pricier than its competition but it sure does make up for it by providing you with plenty of features, even customization options that you won’t find elsewhere.
