Our 5 Top Picks for Baseball Mom Bags
Every travel Baseball Mom needs a great tote bag.
Our requirements as sports moms are simple. We want a bag that is durable, easy to clean, and big enough to hold all the ‘stuff’ our family needs to make it through a game or long tournament. Snacks, sweatshirts, wet wipes, an umbrella, toys for younger siblings – – we bring it all, because like a Boy Scout, we are ‘always prepared.’
So what makes the perfect Baseball Mom bag? Here are some features to consider when shopping for your ideal bag.
- Material and construction. Because of where you’re going to take this bag, durability and ease of cleaning should be considerations. Nylon and canvas tend to be the most durable materials. Polyester is light weight and wipes clean easily.
- Waterproof or water resistant. No way around it, this is a requirement. At some point, you are going to get caught in rain, and someone is going to spill a water bottle in (or on) it.
- Interior space – It’s better to have too much space rather than too little. Consider what you’ll be carrying in the main compartment: a blanket, an umbrella, sweatshirt, bags of snacks, etc.
- Organization features – Interior and exterior pockets help keep small items like sunglasses, lip balm, and sunscreen handy.
- Strap(s) or Handles – Comfort matters. My personal rule is to only buy something comfortable enough to carry, fully loaded, from the parking lot to the back field of a mega baseball complex.
Investing in a well constructed bag that will last you for years is worth it in the long run. To help you out, here are 5 top picks for Baseball Mom bags that check all the boxes for durability, comfort, water resistance, and interior and exterior space. The best part? You can shop all these links on Amazon.
The ‘Utility Tote’ Baseball Mom Bag
If you’re looking for an affordable multipurpose bag that can be used not only for ball games, but also the beach, or camping, or traveling in general, the Pursetti Zip-Top Organizing Utility Tote Bag is the perfect utility tote. It has a zip top, a flat bottom, and a polyester exterior that easily wipes clean. This bag has the most space of our picks – – one huge interior compartment, plus 5 interior pockets. The outside has 6 exterior pockets, plus 2 mesh side water bottle pockets. It comes in 20 different patterns so you’re sure to find a pattern you like.
The ‘Splurge’ Baseball Mom Bag
The Yeti Camino Carryall is a standout for durability, water resistance, and interior space. Features include a puncture and abrasion resistant exterior, and a molded waterproof bottom that prevents tipping. It not only has a wide open top, but also a zipper closure. The Hitchpoint loops on the side hold optional Yeti Molle accessories (Iike this bottle opener). Yes, it’s more of a ‘splurge’ than the other tote bags on the list. However, like all Yeti products, it’s built to last.
The ‘Why yes, I am a Baseball Mom’ Bag
The Baseball NGIL Zippered Caddy Organizer Sports Bag is a large canvas tote with 2 front open pockets, 2 rear pockets with one Velcro flap closure. There are side mesh pockets on both sides for water bottles, and a mini side pocket for small items. It comes in several different patterns, including this fun baseball print.
The ‘Minimalist’ Baseball Mom Bag
A gigantic Baseball Mom Bag isn’t always the best choice for every game or tournament. Some fields, you know you’re looking at a long, hot trek to your ultimate destination in the baking hot July sun. Carrying a huge tote that cuts into your shoulders while you hike across 6 fields at a tournament is a quick way to ruin your day.
The Under Armour Hustle Backpack is ideal for those days when you’re not bringing too much to the ball field. The Hustle backpack is water resistant and has both a padded back panel as well as padded straps for comfort. While smaller than the totes on our list, it still has plenty of room for all your essentials, plus an additional ‘shoe pocket’ in the bottom of the bag.
The ‘One Tough Mother’ Baseball Mom Bag
The Land’s End Open Top Canvas Bag is a bag that will not only last forever, but can be used for anything from baseball games to beach days. This is such a heavy duty bag that according to Lands End, it’s been tested to hold up to 500 pounds. Made of 100% cotton canvas, it has wide seams that allow it to stand upright. The base and trim is water resistant. To help with organization, there is an outside pocket, plus four interior pockets and a key ring attachment.
Baseball moms: you need a great Baseball Mom bag to carry all your stuff. Whether you pick a backpack, a canvas tote, or a utility tote, make sure your baseball mom tote will carry all your essentials for game day.
