Ease of Use and Design
The ease and use of this design is excellent. The transparent pouch is sized perfectly to fit in a myriad of places. From thrown into picnic baskets to wedged between mountains of camping gear The Traveler Kit is durable and easy to pull out of any crevice due to the light and versatile design. The products, though numerous, are easy to pack away and store inside the pouch with no issues of straining or stretching the plastic casing due to their minimal size. This pouch can even be hand held or placed in a large jacket pocket for maximum accessibility. The Travel Kit is perfect for active climbers and runners who don’t want to be lugging around bulky gear that could impede their outdoor activities.
The reliability of this product is fair. The plastic pouch is durable and can withstand being roughed about on the trails or being buried under large amounts of luggage. However, when submerged under lake water for under ten minutes small droplets of water were found on the inside of the plastic pouch. The products that were most visibly affected were the adhesive bandages, pocket floss packs and the packet of sunscreen. Both the bandages and the floss packs dried rather quickly inside the pouch and there was no visibly damage to the packet of sunscreen most likely due to the plastic exterior of the sunscreen packet. For a product that is SSI certified waterproof up to 200 feet, I would advise consumers against taking this kit diving, snorkeling or any water activity that involves the kit to be fully submerged into the water.
One of the products I was most enthused to examine was the dculex pocket lamp. This thin and sleek design was unlike any light device I have ever seen. The way to use the device simply involves pushing the bulb shaped plastic forward, and the soft amber light automatically glows from the battery-powered cell at the bottom of the device. The pocket lamp is perfect helper for late night wilderness cooking and is essential for reading directions on a map in the absence of natural light.
My favorite product in this kit was the Everly Peach Mango energy drink. This thin packet of orange powder really packs a flavor punch! The instructions of the packaging stated powdered beverage must be mixed with 16.9 ounces of water then shaken or stirred until the powder dissipates. I used 16 ounces of water and found the powder dissolved just fine with minimal effort. When poured into the water the orange powder releases a pungent, floral aroma. A little harsh, but the smell soon disappears once all is mixed together. The taste of the drink was sweet and light, with a tangy peach after taste to quench thirst and energize the day’s next activity.
The Bottom Line
The Traveler Kit is an essential item to bring along for a brief camping trip or a lazy day on the canoe.

Though this kit may not be suitable or properly equipped for more extreme climbs and excursions, The Traveler Kit provides the consumer with a fun and comprehensive pack to conveniently toss in the car, bicycle basket or in the to-go bag, with no fears of the contents becoming damaged in the durable pouch.
