Compartments are great. Sometimes you need to separate your socks from your shirts, your lights from your darks. But there are also times (Think: beach!) when you simply want to throw your stuff into a single space, in a flash. The unbreakable Bucket Bag is large and waxed water-proof with a single reservoir for everything, all at once. And there's this: the fabric is stiff enough to stay upright and open as needed.
This replaces another bucket style bag I got while serving in S. Korea (1988). This is a better bag and I really like the water resistant bottom. This one should last me at least another 30 years (I'll be 99 then - I'll let you know!)
