28L Backpack and Men’s wallet
The UK have a bag charge (which I think is great, save all that plastic in landfill) so this backpack is a great buy. Its water resistant, folds into a tiny pouch with a zip that can be easily tucked in a pocket, and is perfect for carrying around so you’ve always somewhere to put purchases.
Its incredibly lightweight, made of a highly rip and water resistant ( it does say waterproof, but I don’t think it would stand up to heavy rain) nylon fabric and very strong, so will take groceries, books, packed lunches easily. Its in three different colour choices, I chose the purple. I would have liked a couple of reflective tabs on this as I’ve seen on others, safety is so important.
It’s got a large central capacity, a small inner zipped pocket and two outer second zipped pocket and two mesh side pockets – perfect for drinks bottles for hikers or students. The shoulder straps are adjustable and have a mesh back, that helps with sweating but they don’t have padding – that would add to weight and price of course, and take away one of the major bonuses of this, that its easy to pack into a small bag and carry with you.
Its great for shopping, taking an extra bag to school or college etc, but un;less your tablet or laptop is in its own protective case I wouldn’t use this for carrying it, there is no protection for it.
Its one of those items where if light weight and easy to carry if your main preference its perfect, its its a laptop/tablet bag you want then choose one with more padding.
I’ve one of these I use all the while, tucked in my bag ready for shopping, and this one will come in handy for leaving in the car so there’s always a bag spare ready to use.
Kinzd® Mens Slim Bifold Leather Front Pocket Wallet with Money Clip
A smart men’s wallet, ( the wallet is smart, not necessarily the man!!) this comes presented in a box, making it look good as a gift.
Its in black leather and very slim, yet has numerous slots for all the cards we seem to carry, credit and debit, store cards, nectar cards, driving licence ( there’s a handy clear slot for that) donor card. Then simply tuck your notes under the money clip, which lifts up then locks down and its all you need. I’d tuck the notes inside the two pockets either side of the clip for additional security.
So many men just stuff notes loose in their pockets, then when they take one out others get dropped so with one of these hopefully they won’t lose them so easily. Its fully lined in a soft creamy grey fabric, and the finishing is very good.
Stars: Five, smart and secure wallet.
