Catalina Collection Comparison Guide

Overview

Catalina Deluxe

Catalina Deluxe

The most spacious and most popular style in the collection. Available in 2 sizes.


Great for longer trips and vacations, particularly road trips.


Qualifies as a carry-on size, but not as a “personal item”. Will fit in an overhead compartment, but unless partially packed will not fit underneath an airplane seat.


A little large to carry on a daily basis unless you use it for the gym or workouts. Also great as a hospital bag!

Catalina Deluxe Tote

Catalina Deluxe Tote

The most versatile edition in the collection. Has the perfect balance of capacity yet compactness.


Big enough to fit all your travel essentials for a short trip.


Small enough to fit as a carry-on “personal item” in case you want to bring it on a flight with a larger carry-on suitcase.


Also great for the daily commute, gym/workouts, beach, farmers market, and even as a unisex diaper bag!

Catalina Day Tote

Catalina Day Tote

A more compact and lightweight edition of the Deluxe Tote, and doesn’t include a sleeve for attaching to suitcase handles.


Big enough to fit all your travel essentials for a short trip.


Small enough to fit as a carry-on “personal item” in case you want to bring it on a flight with a larger carry-on suitcase.


Great for daily use and a perfect alternative to using a basic canvas tote bag to carry your everyday essentials.

FAQ

Does the Catalina Collection meet airline size requirements for carry-on bags?

In general, yes. It is always a good idea to confirm requirements with your airline beforehand. For most major airlines: The Catalina Deluxe Large can be placed in the overhead compartment of most aircrafts. The Catalina Deluxe Small can be placed in the overhead compartment of most aircrafts and may fit underneath the airline seat when not fully packed. The Catalina Deluxe Tote should fit underneath the airline seat of most aircrafts, and should comply with the dimension requirements of most aircrafts. The Catalina Day Tote is not built for air travel like its counterparts in the collection (it does not have the luggage sleeve) however, it can fit under most airline seats as a personal item.

How do I clean / care for the Recycled Poly material?

The 600D Recycled Poly is a firm, sturdy material made from recycled water bottles. While we do not recommend machine washing our cotton canvas Catalina bags, you can machine wash the 600D Recycled Poly! We recommend washing the bag on the “delicate” or “hand washing” cycle with cold water and mild detergent, then laid flat to air or line dry. We DO NOT recommend taking the bag to the dry cleaners.

How do I clean / care for the Organic Cotton Canvas material?

The Organic Cotton canvas is a soft yet sturdy material. If needed, we recommend spot cleaning the bag with water or a mild detergent, and then allow to air dry. However, test a small area of the bag with the mild detergent first before applying all over to avoid any possible damage. We do not recommend machine washing nor do we recommend taking the bag to the dry cleaners.
