For Those Always On The Go
This cool and contemporary toiletry kit is the ultimate gift idea for adventures seekers and free spirits. All the restless chaps in your life, whether they be your brothers, lovers or sons, are sure to buzz off its sporty design, no-fuss attitude and simple organisation.
It’s not called the “Express Toiletry Kit” for nothing. Designed for efficiency and ease, the pouch accommodates all his essential toiletries and allows your guy to simply grab the kit, throw it in his luggage and go. When he hits his destination, the bag can be unzipped and hung using its webbing Velcro® strap, which can be converted to a hanging loop, for instant access to its contents.
The cylindrical design and two-tone blue/grey colours look pretty sharp, meaning your special man can store the kit on his bathroom counter with pride. Internally, the bag consists of two gusseted u-zip sections; one of which is a nylon-lined dry pocket for accommodating items such as a comb, toothpaste and electric shaver, and the other a water-resistant wet pocket to protect the rest of the kit from wet face cloths, toothbrushes and leaky shampoo bottles.
A lifesaver for those with busy lifestyles, the Express Toiletry Kit is a slick, hip and modern gift that’s bound to put a grin on his face this Christmas.
