Solvit Travel Organizer Kit Review and Giveaway
Going places with Mr. N is akin to going places with a baby. So much additional stuff to haul around. Especially when we’re going to training class or Mr. N’s therapy dog sessions. I’m pretty sure all his gear and treats and things weigh about as much as Mr. N does. I constantly tell Mr. N if he was any bigger, I’d make him wear a backpack and carry some of his own things.
Until that day, I use the Solvit HomeAway™ Travel Organizer Kit
which comes with tons and tons of individual pockets and is sturdily built. It has dividers inside the bag so you can have one, two or three compartments. I usually go for the third option and keep water in one, treats in another and toys in the third.There’s two mesh pockets on the side and a larger one on the back. I use those for damp or dirty or over-sized items like Mr. N’s mat or his cooling vest.
I keep clothes in one middle pocket and a poop bag dispenser (that pocket has a hole just for that purpose) in the other as well as other small miscellaneous items like a target stick. Mr. N knows all the good things live in the bag and will try to steal his only for training squirrel toy out of it.
The organizer bag comes with a 1-liter water bottle, a 10-cup food storage bag, two collapsible travel bowls and a bag dispenser with bags. The bowls and storage bag are too big for Mr. N so I didn’t test them out. I think his ears would probably get wet from drinking out of the bowls. They’d be a convenient option for bigger dogs though.
The water bottle is unbreakable which is a handy feature. It doesn’t seem to keep water cool for a long time though so I’d slip some ice cubes in if you’re going to be out for a while. And I tore the poop bags trying to get them out (they’re kind of flimsy) so I’d replace them with your own.
I really liked the bag for training class purposes. I think it would make a good emergency kit bag as well. It’s a little small for road trips especially if you’re not a minimalist packer. I am not and bring all the comforts of home for Mr. N like his blanket and polar bear and all the things. I think it would make a good emergency preparedness bag. In a pinch, Mr. N will fit inside the bag as well.
