Very impressive storage bag. The extra 3 tools are useful, but not indispensible.
on 8 October 2015
I didn't buy this kit, I bought a new Dyson V6 Animal, and Dyson sent me this kit free as a loyalty customer.
I'm very impressed with the storage bag, so I will start with that first.
It is very well made and sewn.
I'm not exactly sure what the main material is, but it's very strong and you would find it very hard wearing.
Opened out it is around 82 cm long x 39 cm wide. So, if you are thinking of hanging it up open behind a door etc., then be prepared for it to take up most of the door.
For hanging up, there is a loop of material at the top, and a good strong carabiner is also provided.
When folded (empty) it's around 30 cm x 39 cm and looks similar to a briefcase with the handle on the top. The fastening is a simple (but good quality) velcro one.
Inside the bag is a full width top zipped pocket with see-through mesh (around 20 cm deep), and a similar one at the bottom which is not see-through. This is slightly deeper at around 24 cm.
There are 3 upright pockets sewn in (large(ish), medium, and small) and 1 longer width-way pocket - all with elasticated tops.
All the inner (apart from the mesh) is a kind of strong, light grey, canvas material.
If this were a general purpose bag, and not simply for Dyson accessories, then the bag alone would probably be worth the price.
The three extra tools are....
- A soft dusting brush (fairly useful for light dusting).
- A mattress tool (useful now and again)
- An 'up top' tool which is rounded to give a 90 degree angle and swivels at each end (not particularly useful for me).
I'm told that this kit can be sold for as much as £65, and I think that would definitely be too much to pay for 3 extra tools and a bag.
But at just over half that price, it's not a bad buy - not excellent value, but OK value.
The storage bag is excellent though.
Anyway, whether you buy or not, I hope that you find my review at least a little helpful to you in some way when making your decision.
Thanks for reading it.
