SCOUT bags and accessories are designed to help people living busy lives with a fun blend of style and good humor! Each SCOUT piece - whether it’s a tote bag, one of their handbags, a backpack, or a cooler - is designed to be lightweight and durable, and many bags are even water-resistant! Take them on errands, to parties, to the office, or even to the beach!
SCOUT patterns and names are inspired by the very best that cities have to offer, whether it’s local, street fashion, fabric houses, or its natural beauty. Once inspiration hits, a team of designers goes to work to design the final pattern and give it a snazzy, smile-inducing name. Nobody can argue that SCOUT bags are lacking character!
Community is an integral part of SCOUT, particularly on the East Coast where the love for SCOUT has risen to almost a cult status! In addition to offering stylish and super-fun products, SCOUT was founded on the idea of giving back, which is why the company is always working with charitable foundations and their local communities. SCOUT even started its own initiative, the Go Bo Fund, which benefits pediatric cancer patients and their families.

No matter where life takes you, you’ll always be able to take your stuff along with you - and in style!
Q. Are SCOUT bags waterproof?
A. SCOUT bags and accessories are generally water-resistant, meaning that most moisture will simply bounce right off, whether it’s raindrops or some pool or beachside splashes. They are not, however, waterproof. Water will eventually bleed through if submerged or drenched.
Q. What are SCOUT bags made from?
A. SCOUT bags and accessories are made from one of five materials: All-Weather Woven, Coated Cotton, Coated Poly Twill, Quilted Poly Twill, and Faux Textured Leather. All-Weather Woven and Coated Cotton offer water resistance with slightly different qualities each, while Coated Poly Twill is what their Coolers and insulated bags are made from. Refer to individual product details to see which fabric they are made from.
Q. What inspires SCOUT bags’ designs?
A. Every design by SCOUT is inspired by yearly trips by Deb Waterman Johns (Creative Director, Co-Founder of SCOUT) to favorite cities and beaches. Each location’s rich tapestry of sights, colors, and flavors kicks off every season’s collection of new patterns and designs.
Q. How do you clean SCOUT products?
A. Typically, SCOUT products may be cleaned simply by wiping them down with a wet cloth. Mild soap may be used, as well. It is always a good idea to refer to each individual product’s care instructions (either on the tag or the “Care Tips” tab on the product listing) to avoid damaging it.
