Scout El Deano Insulated Tote Bag (Review)

I try to group errands to save both time and gas particularly when grocery shopping. I usually hit two stores, sometimes three if I need something from a specialty store or market. I can’t always find what I need at one grocery store.

Fortunately, I have enough reusable shopping bags in the trunk of my car to handle a three stop grocery shopping hop. I want to add a couple of insulated grocery shopping totes to my shopping tote arsenal for frozen fish, meat, and cheese.

Husband requested that the new insulated shopping tote bag be less girly since he helps with the shopping too. No problem! Scout El Deano insulated tote bags  come in bright girly stripes as well as masculine patterns and solids. I the split the Mars Venus difference and road tested a blue insulated tote.



Blitzkrieg verified that Scout’s shipping boxes make great dog beds!


The Scout bag came on grocery shopping weekend. Husband and I gave it a spin. The Scout El Deano Insulated Tote Bag is large enough to hold all of our frozen and refrigerated meat and cheese from Store one. Normally it takes two cloth totes to hold that many groceries.

Blitzkrieg volunteered to help demonstrate how much the Scout El Deano Insulated Tote Bag holds because he is cuter than packages of frozen salmon.

Salmon will fit in this bag too. I'll hold it in my tummy for you.


Pros
  • Scout El Deano Insulated Tote Bag  is 21in.(W) x15in.(H) x6in.(D) – large enough to hold several plastic grocery bags of food or one 12 dog pretending to be several plastic grocery bags of food.
  • Scout El Deano Insulated Tote Bag is water resistant
  • Scout El Deano Insulated Tote Bag  zips. None of my totes have this feature. I like it.
  • Scout El Deano Insulated Tote Bag is easy to clean – I wiped the inside down with a damp towel before I put the bag away.
  • Scout El Deano Insulated Tote Bag works as an insulated picnic/beach tote for drinks and snacks.

Cons

  • The lining of the Scout El Deano Insulated Tote Bag is PVC Coated Polyester. I know many of you try to avoid PVC.
