Full sized, roomy, functional wash bag. Which can still rest on the palm of your hand.
on 8 July 2013
This bag is just the right size for me. About 14x14x25 cm in size when fully packed. It has perhaps the best practical design for a wash bag. Two separate roomy compartments and a little side pocket. So it holds full sized bottles of shower gel and shampoo as well as face cleanser in one pocket with enough space to add full sized moisturiser and another small bottle - and that is just one pocket. In the other pocket I have my electric tootbrush in a full sized case with spare brushes, full sized tube of toothpaste and that second pocket is not even half filled. Then you can put other stuff like a comb, cotton buds, etc into the small side pocket.
So the size is fine. It is a full sized mens wash bag for carrying everything that you could possibly need to the bathroom or in your large gym bag. For travelling I would opt for a smaller bag to save space in my luggage.
The strap seems a little bit too long and dangly considering it's sole purpose is just for carrying the bag -- you could put your forearm through it.
The zips look a little bit cheap and make a rasping noise when you open and close them. They don’t run silkily smooth. So I can see these wearing out eventually. But even if they did the bag would still be usable to a degree. This bag is just under £10 and you can easily pay up to 30 or 30 for bags in some department stores which are not as useful as this one.
It's genuine real leather but it seems to me to be made from off cuts of cheap leather. So the leather is wrinkly in some places and smooth in other parts of the bag. It is not your highly polished, smoother leather, posh wash bag that you will see in the department stores with a designer label - but these bags of course will command a price of £50 or more.
This bag has full lining inside (which looks like nylon) and is robustly stitched so any leakages inside the bag will be contained to a good degree.
Apart from the zips possibly wearing out over time this bag will certainly last a long time and is a definite bargain.
We tend to take more and more stuff with us to the bath room these days. This bag will prove really useful avoiding having to carry some of your stuff in your hands or in the pockets of your dressing gown. Recommended!
