eBasics vs. Petsafe and Wildebeest
Reviewed in the United States on August 30, 2019
I bought three pouches to compare them and try them out.
Ranked in order from best to worst:
- At first I was concerned about the zippered pocket not fitting my galaxy phone. I would have rather had it be an unzippered pouch. However, my concerns were unfounded as my phone easily fit in the pocket. I love the lip that allows me to easily tug the pouch open. Last night, I found that I could put a little plastic cup in the zippered pouch to hold treats if I am in a training session. It fits snug (though not intended to use both pockets at the same time if I put a cup in the zippered pouch). The main reason I pocket this one over wildebeest was because when I pull on the lip to open the pouch, the pouch stays snug by my side and the pouch opens. (I will tell you what happens to wildebeest when I try this move). Lastly, I love that this pouch has elastics on the straps to keep the straps snug and not hanging off loosely. None of the other pouches had this feature. Its perfect, plus the price is perfect. loved it!
2. Wildebeest 32
I bought this one because a youtuber I followed recommended it. It is nice, but it is twice the price at 32 dollars. I like the second pocket. If you want to carry more than a phone, than maybe this is the pouch for you, because my phone fit loosely in this. I however, only wanted to carry my phone as my poop bags are usually carried elsewhere. The major design flaw of this particular pouch is the way it opens if you have the straps on. The strap is not snug against the pouch which caused the pouch to pull away from you when you try to open it. The is a major flaw because treats needs to be super accessible when training your dog. Seconds matter.
3. Petsafe mini 12.95
I bought this because I didnt want something big. This is the only one of the three that didn't have a magnet to open and close. It has a metal contraption. Like I said above, seconds matter, and this one is just overal super inconvenient. I did not like it at all compared to the other two.
Hope this review is helpful. I will try to add more details and photos later. Note: I did the review which only straps on because I usually wear dresses so I can only use the pouches with straps on.
