Cheap Thrill! A Striped Backpack You Can Abuse At The Beach

When the clock hits three o'clock on Friday, we've already got sunblock on our nose, and our beach bag on our shoulder. By now though, our straw sack is looking a little worse for wear, and we're entertaining new options to lug around our sea-side stuff with. This American Apparel rucksack hits up on a few of this season's hottest handbag trends and costs much less than the JF & SON bucket bag. Of course, it hasn't got a leather trim, sunny yellow colorway, or the craftsmanship of the JF & SON, but it's a great option that you won't might banging up a bit while you're bumming it at the beach.
