Over the summer we were asked if Ethan and Little E would like to review some items from the Trunki range. We picked the Benny the Cat Trunki for Little E to review. We thought it would be nice for Ethan to review the Trunki swimming bag range. Ethan picked Tang the Tropical Fish from the Trunki PaddlePak range. He said he wanted Dory please.
What Is A Trunki PaddlePak?
A PaddlePak is a water-resistant backpack perfect for days out and trips to the pool or beach. It is made from a lightweight and durable material. The PaddlePack is designed to stop wet stuff getting in, or leaking out!
PaddlePak’s have the following design features
- a roll top closure
- a breakaway safety buckle to open and close the bag
- it is made from water-resistant fabric
- adjustable shoulder straps
- a padded mesh back
- a hanging loop
- an external tail pocket
- a Trunki Grip™ for sunglasses or goggles
- reflective strips on the shoulder straps
What Did Ethan Love About His Tang the Tropical Fish PaddlePak?
Ethan loved the bright colours of his PaddlePak. He found it easy to wear and easy to open. We took it out to the beach with us and captured this short video.
What We Love About The Tang the Tropical Fish PaddlePak?
We love how the PaddlePak is secured at the top to keep items inside dry or wet with no leaks. You must note that the buckle that secures the bag should be used just for that. It shouldn’t be confused with a buckle that is used to secure walking reins and therefore be attached to your child in anyway. We love the reflective strips on the shoulder straps. These are very handy on winter nights when walking home from school. Anything that makes your children more visible to oncoming cars is a big bonus.
We find the changing rooms in swimming pools can be quite stressful places. The PaddlePaks external tail pocket will be a great help. It will be able to hold the change for a locker and our keys. When we receive paperwork for any awards that are given this pocket will be able to keep it nice and dry. The hanging loop is also a great addition as finding spare space in the changing rooms is always interesting.
The video below is the review I produced for our YouTube channel.
The Trunki PaddlePak Tang the Tropical Fish has a RRP of £19.99. The PaddlePak range starts from £4.99. They can be purchased from the Trunki website, are also be found on Amazon* and are stocked in many good high street retailers.
