Product Review: Pochette Travel Pouch

SmarterTravel

What Is it: The Pochette, a travel pouch.

Price and Where to Buy: Currently $38 on Hudsonandbleecker.com.

Pros:

  • Comes in a variety of fashionable designs.
  • Small enough to fit into a bigger bag and used as a makeup case or jewelry organizer.
  • Large enough to be used on its own as a clutch—you could fit a pair of foldable flats, your phone, and wallet in here.
  • Inner zippered pockets keeps valuables safe (or keys easy to find.)
  • Water resistant lining.

Cons:

  • After heavy use some of the threads on the outer fabric started fraying a little—nothing that was super noticeable though.

How it Rates:

  • Usefulness: 8/10. We love being able to give our shoulders a break from heavy purses/day bags and switch to a clutch for dinner/nights out when traveling. This pouch is the perfect size, because it can fit a ton but still be used as a wristlet.
  • Portability: 9/10. The bag is 9″Wx7″H when empty, and very lightweight.
  • Value: 8/10. At $38 this is a great price for a bag of this size.
  • Cool Factor: 9/10. We’re digging all the designs available on the Pochettes, but note that some of the newer prints are not on sale.

Final Verdict: If you’re looking for a bag big enough to hold all your essentials, but small enough to carry on your wrist, the Pochette is a great, budget-friendly and fashionable option.
