What is it? In simple words, it is a small bag. In fact, it wouldn’t be wrong to describe this as a ‘hip pack’, ‘bum belt’ , or what Americans refer to as a ‘fanny pack’. However, what makes it interesting is that it is targeted directly at the people who use and carry around their Spheros and Ollies. If you don’t know what I am talking about, this probably isn’t for you. Or better, you can click on the links and find out what I am talking about.
Probably the first thing that hit me was how small this bag was. In fact, I didn’t realize that it was something designed to go around my waist till I had it delivered to me. Pictures speak a thousand words, but perspective adds just that tiny bit more.
Now before I go on, there is nothing stopping you from using this from your shoulder. I just think it will work better around your waist.
Speaking of size, it is enough. You can have an Ollie and a Sphero in there. You can also add other accessories.
Open the zip and you find the included cleaning cloth, as well as a separator, a bit of fabric that can be positioned inside using the magic of Velcro. Leaving it in the middle gives you enough room to have an Ollie and two Spheros, just about. Or you can have one of each and some accessories. Like most bags, it is really up to you. Making it adjustable is a very clever feature.
The insides are lined with soft inner lining as well.
Also inside, you find a safety zipped pocket.
On the outside is another zipped pocket, which is quite small, and perhaps designed for USB cables.
The back comes with a strap, and allows you to adjust is as you would like.
As I said, it works perfectly around the shoulder or the waist, but based on its size, it works better around the waist.
However, for kids, I think around the shoulder works just fine.
Of course, like most other bags, you can bung in other things as well.
Some features in a summary:
- Shock absorbent – Prevents Sphero accidently turning on
- Water resistant
- Zipped pockets
- Adjustable compartments
- Microfibre cleaning Cloth included
