Whenever I embark on a new adventure, I would say that what I pack in my backpack is probably 80% dresses. I love a good dress, they are easy to dress down, dress up and super simple to pack and throw on. My main problem with them though is them getting creased and of course the lack of pockets.
So when I heard that the wonderful people behind the Kosan Travel dress wanted to send me a dress to try, a dress WITH pockets and many other features, I was all ears.
They have a few different colours and styles and as you can see I went for the green. It’s a wrap around dress which is super simple to throw on and super comfortable. The only slight issue for me was the boob area being a bit “loose” but I think that was a sizing issue more than anything else.
I took the dress out for a spin on my bike because that is where I spend most of my time here in Holbox. I am always getting for A to B on my bike and having a super simple dress to throw on is key for my day to day life here. The length alternation feature on this dress was beyond PERFECTION. I was able to choose two different lengths to shorten the dress, which made hopping on my bike that much easier and faster.
Another bonus for me personally, is the zipped pockets as well as the secret pockets. This dress has two, deep pockets on the outside WITH zips. I mean what else do you need? I was able to pop my phone in one pocket securely and my mosquito spray in the other (because you are never safe from mosquitoes here).
There was also two more secret pockets in the top area, big enough to fit your bank or identity cards. You know I’m kind of annoyed I didn’t have this dress when I was travelling through Europe this summer because honestly, It would have been ideal.
Although I have only tested it out on island life, I am pretty sure this it’s the perfect travel companion in cities. When you want to explore but travel light and feel safe that everything that is important, is close to you and zipped up!
Here are some of the dresses great benefits:
- Easy to pack
- Odour Blocking
- Wrinkle Resistant
- UV protection
- Adjustable Length
- Quick Drying
- Passport pocket WITH zips
- Cash and card “secret” pockets
- Lipbalm slot
To be honest and all my readers know that is one quality of mine that I pride myself on. This dress was more than I expected. Sometimes you can throw too many good ideas together and it doesn’t work but this dress really does. It is a million degrees here (OK like 30 degrees) but I was cool and comfortable riding around the island in my Kosan Dress.
I think this is something you should definitely invest in if you are a traveler, an explorer, wanderer or even just for a dress for a night out. I mean, imagine going out and not having to worry about your bag at the side of the dance floor, you’ve got your card, cash, phone and hostel dorm key all secured in your beautiful dress pocket.
