August Gear Reviews: Ortleib Dry Bag & Skip Hop Zoo Packs

Skip HopSkip Hop Zoo Packs: These are a great accessory for days out or holidays with small kids. They have been designed to appeal to children and to be easy for little ones to use unaided. Children will love the colourful characters making it a perfect back pack to nursery, school, on holiday or days out. Reassuringly BPA, PVC and Phthalate free, Zoo Packs feature large zip pulls, a roomy main compartment, a zipped pocket on the front and a mesh bottle pocket on the side. In addition there is a lightly insulated pocket within the external zip pocket. These features make staying organised that little bit easier for parents and ensure that their youngsters feel very grown up with their own special luggage. RRP: £20.75, available from retailers including www.happybags.co.uk Alison Taylor

OrtleibOrtleib Dry Bag PD 350 59L: This medium weight dry bag is a great piece of kit any avid adventurer who needs to keep their gear dry, safe and 100% waterproof. Offering the highest level of protection it features an easily compressible design to give you more room within your pack. A tough reinforced base provides stability and easier loading and there are buckles with two D-rings for securing or locking, as well as a strong bottom loop for fixing or holding during unpacking. The bag proved to be durable, and ideal for kayaking or trekking. RRP£21 Ben Jones

My Carry PottyMy Carry Potty: Potty training is a testing time for even the most patient of parents. Their timing will almost always seem inconvenient and  it can become frustrating especially when the potty is nowhere to hand – on days out, holidays or when simply getting from A to B. When we discovered My Carry Potty, life became so much easier; our daughter even uses her pink My Carry Potty downstairs, leaving her regular one upstairs. More compact and lightweight, it comes in a range of bright colours and looks like a little briefcase which toddlers love and it has proven to be perfect for car journeys and travelling. It even comes with an educational story book, written by its creator Amanda Jenner. RRP £25, see www.mycarrypotty.co.uk for stockists. Tim Saunders
