Planning a fun-filled day at the beach or water park, fit everything you need in one of Lands’ End’s durable and stylish canvas totes. The Lands’ End staple comes in a variety of amazing colors and prints. Of course we love the natural colors, but we are drawn to fun prints like the black polka dots, bright indigo paisley, black geo, coral stripe, and true navy paisley.

Complete your look with one of the following Lands’ End cover-ups, including UPF 50 Swim Tees, Swim Crop Leggings, Cover-up Tunic Dresses, Jersey Cover-ups, Cover-up Skirts and Shorts, Surf leggings, Sarongs, and Drawstring Pants.
