“Everyone comments on my bag that it looks so nice they think it’s expensive,” one Amazon shopper said
Is there anything worse than getting caught in the rain with your favorite but totally-not-waterproof handbag? You never really know when a quick shower will sneak up on you, especially during the spring season, which is why carrying a water-resistant bag is a good idea — so you don’t have to worry about ruining it or ruining anything inside (like your laptop!).
We know waterproof bags and backpacks usually aren’t the most stylish accessories — they prioritize function over fashion, so they’re often very plain and boring looking. That’s why we’re obsessed with this adorable PINCNEL waterproof bag from Amazon ($25.99; amazon.com). Not only can you use it as a backpack and shoulder bag (it has two adjustable back straps, plus one detachable single shoulder strap), but it’s actually stylish enough you’ll want to be seen in public with it.
The PINCNEL bag has over 1,000 perfect five-star reviews, and is actually an Amazon best-seller in the backpack handbags category. The bag is made out of water-resistant nylon, features a chic leather stripe down the middle, and comes with a super cute pompom keychain. There are a few color options to choose from, including black, gray, navy blue, and khaki, some of which come in larger versions. The bag is also considered “anti-theft” because its main zippered compartment is actually in the back of the bag instead of the front, which makes it safer than standard front-opening bags.

Reviewers love how roomy, secure, and versatile the PINCNEL bag is. “I wanted something small, lightweight, water resistant, multipurpose, and theft resistant. This fit the bill perfectly,” one shopper wrote. “It’s a nylon material, like the description says, but it doesn’t look cheap; it also doesn’t look like a school backpack, which was a worry of mine. But the real beauty of this thing is the functionality. The inside compartment is deceptively large. I could fit everything I needed for hikes, shopping, and travel in a cold climate. And it was also perfect for the plane! Highly recommend.”
Plus, the bag is full of smaller compartments that are great for safely storing items like your phone, wallet, water bottle, umbrella, and other knick knacks, including three open pockets, one hidden zipped pocket on the opening flap, and additional zipped pockets on the left and right exterior.
“Everyone comments on my bag that it looks so nice they think it’s expensive, and the fact that it’s waterproof! I love running in the rain with it and not having to worry about it being damaged,” another Amazon shopper raved. “Did I tell you I can fit a pair [of] shoes in there along with my water bottle, my wallet, my planner, my extra phone, and I even put my big winter hat in there!? I feel like I’m challenging myself every time I’m stuffing more and more things in there. I’m a mom, so the more stuff I can stuff in there the better.”
The PINCNEL bag ticks off all of the most important components of what makes a good daily, travel, and work bag, and it’s under $30 (total steal alert) — so make sure you grab one before it goes out of stock!
