TRYING OUT AQUAVAULT'S INNOVATIVE PRODUCTS FOR AN EASIER DAY AT THE BEACH

 

 

I've been going stir crazy lately.  Not long ago I'd woken up to a terribly painful shoulder and subsequent MRI, visits to the doctor and physical therapy.  If you know me well, you'd know I am dying to just get back to normal and function again.  Being the usual busy body but forcing myself to not do certain things so as to get back to 100% is actually not as easy as you'd think.  And being a shut-in is not quite the best way to go about healing either - apparently for shoulder injuries it's not always a good idea to mobilize in one position for too long either.  So when I am feeling antsy and wanting to be somewhere other than my home, I head to the beach for some easy relaxation and fresh air, sans the swimming, and it is a nice in-between for me that allows me to do something with my family without feeling too restricted.

But going to the beach is not always the easiest thing with kids.  Thankfully, I have my trusty helpful husband to do a lot of things, but I always imagine how difficult it could be if I were to go it alone, or alone with the kids.  Where would one leave their valuables to go and supervise the swimming?  I know I would not feel comfortable leaving them in my car especially in specific touristy spots in Hawaii that are notorious for car theft.  Some of these regular thieves watch you from afar and wait until you've left all your goodies behind before breaking in.  And leaving your purse or wallet behind is just an invitation for that sort of thing.

Enter Aquavault's Flexsafe - a portable locker, but more compact than its original as seen on the Shark Tank.  Bring a decent chair, heavy cooler or stroller, or go somewhere with some lounge chairs or a bike rack.  Because that's all you'd need to make sure your valuables are kept safe with the Flexsafe.  Flexsafe is basically a cut-resistant, durable bag with a locking flap that may be fastened over the top of anything somewhat secured or too heavy for a thief to take.  You set a 3-digit code that only you would know, and rest assured your items are safe while you take a dip in the pool, or supervise the little ones while they are building sand castles near the shore.  No paranoid looking back to make sure everything's still there.

The Flexsafe is very straightforward and easy to use.  Simply push the left knob on the clasp towards the middle, hold, and set your 3-digit number, then release the knob back to its original position.  Lock the top part of the clasp into place, then scramble the numbers.  And that's it, you're set.  If it's hard to visualize how to do that, watch this tutorial video by Aquavault to show you how it's done.  And while you're on youtube, you may come across a negative (albeit, somewhat comical) review done of this item that shows how easy it is to unzip and get your fingers inside to steal the contents of the safe even when locked - this is actually not the Flexsafe I received - the one I have has a fail-proof zipper that goes vertically from the top of the clasp to the base of the flap, making it nearly impossible to unzip and get into while fastened to an oblong device (even if it weren't vertically positioned, it would still be difficult with a horizontal zipper to get anything out of that while fastened to something).  My husband tested this while we were out and trying it at the beach and he said it was simply impossible to take anything out of the Flexsafe after zipping and fastening.  My only complaint is that when choosing your combination, scrolling the numbers is not so easy.  But I suppose this is a small thing to overlook considering the benefits of this product.

For added convenience, there are pouches and loops on the sides to hold other items that may not necessarily need securing, and a large belt loop in the back.  There is also a cushioned heavy duty handle on top to make it easy to carry.  And while very compact, the Flexsafe has a decent amount of room to put in your wallet, car keys, and phone all together with a tiny bit of wiggle space to spare.  We left it hooked to a lounge chair at the beach shore.

Prior to getting the Flexsafe, I was unaware there was anything like it even available, but always ran into the problem of "someone has to watch the bag" when wanting to take a dip. Initially, I had asked Aquavault to review their Packable Pail, a pail that folds down flat for easier transporting to/from the beach. And they were so gracious to send that, along with their Flexsafe and their waterproof floating phone case. I'm so glad they did because going to the beach is a lot easier with the Flexsafe!

The Packable Pail was very impressive in quality. It is moderately sized, too, unlike those small, flimsy plastic ones we see so often, with handles that easily break. The handles are very sturdy as is the rest of the pail. The kids gave it a decent trial and it withstood that with zero breakage or damage. And it was nice to simply fold it back down into its flat position and throw in the trunk without it taking up so much space! The pail itself is made of plastic and also a softer flexible material between to allow for folding down, so even if your kids try to fold it or do it unknowingly, they would not pinch their fingers because of the flexible, soft material. I only wished I'd brought a back-up pail to prevent the fighting that would ensue between the two monsters about who would get the pail first.

  • Doesn’t always pay to buy the first version of anything as now it’s improved and seems a lot better. Haven’t even used mine yet and it’s been a year. Took it out to look at it and says water resistant but there is actually a hole in the bottom with an opening around a gromlet
