Travel Happens Whales Wet Bag is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps your wet suit away from other clothes! I purchased these as thank you gifts and Christmas gifts. This is the best product for keeping your wet swimsuit away from other dry clothes or items when traveling or coming back from the beach. I used it in Iceland, and it never got any of my other clothes wet for 9 days after using the Blue Lagoon on my first day there. When changing at the beach before getting into the car, it never got any of my other items wet. and It is machine washable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it This bag and the smaller Itzy Ritzy wet/snack bags are great. I use them for wet bathing suits, soiled baby clothes, crayons, snacks, small toys, and more! And the patterns are CUTE! The only reason I'm taking off a star is because I have noticed that the zipper starts to puff out after washing, making it harder to zip the bag closed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps Things Dry I got this bag last year before I went on vacation. I spend practically my whole vacation in the water, and it always leaves my suit wet. Even when I leave my suit out to dry the night before we leave, it's usually still damp in the morning. It used to mean that I'd have to put a wet suit in my bag with all of my clothes. But now I don't have to worry about getting my clothes wet. I loved this bag so much that I bought another one for my bathing suit I take to the gym pool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great for potty training My daughter is a toddler and sometimes she has accidents when we are out. We use this bag to put the soiled clothes in as well as her soiled cloth wipes. It holds the wetness in as well as the urine odor if we are in an area that the clothing can't be rinsed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for hot yoga I've used all kinds of PUL wet bags. I love this one. The top zip is great. I am already plotting another purchase for holding toiletries. I get loads of comments on the cute pattern.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for tropical vacations! My husband and I recently went on a cruise and I purchased this bag before our trip. This bag was so useful! One of our stops was a day trip to Atlantis. When we were done swimming we just placed our swimwear in this bag. It was so nice to know that we could go shopping afterwards without worrying about the swimsuits leaking all over my beach bag!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient for the summer! This bag was big enough to hold one or two swimsuits and is adorable and so convenient! Excited that I can toss my suit in my bag without it needing to be in a gross old grocery bag - the whales are much cuter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wet happened is a happening wet storage solution Ordered the Wet Happened wet bag in licorice for the trunk/spare diaper bag. It's big enough to hold a few wet or soiled items, but folds compactly when not in use. Only complaint is it really isn't that large so would recommend the XL bag for adult items/larger sizes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! We LOVE beach vacations and this is great! We don't have to worry about putting wet suits in a suitcase. Also great for after the pool in the summer. Would definitely recommend this, in fact, I may need to get another one!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wet Happened Laundry Bag These bags are great, I purchased one for a friend's daughter for graduation and they have used it many times already. She's looking forward to filling it up with her dirty / sweaty/ wet clothes and bring them home for Mom to wash.
