Mess-Free Travel

Würkin Stiffs created this clever silicone doppel bag with the road warrior in mind. The seamless silicone design neatly contains toiletry leaks and spills, saving the inside of your suitcase from a disaster. The roomy interior holds plenty (like a whole can of shaving cream), and the outside looks rugged yet attractive. Founder Jonathan Boos is a serial entrepreneur who creates problem-solving products for the modern man. But this doppel bag will appeal to any traveler. Crafting it from a single piece of silicone, Boos made it spill- and leak-proof, but also easy to clean—just rinse and air dry and it’s ready for another trip.

    10/21/2015 11:06 AM

    @Clayton...About 10" in length and 6" high and 5.5" wide. One of the best things though is that because it is 100% silicone it expands a bit to accommodate a lot of different shape items...in this case size matters!

    There is a lot that goes into manufacturing each of these bags...from the taped internal seams to prevent leakage to the embossed tire pattern on the outside of the bag. We have always gone by the old adage that the "devil is in the details" and we like to think we thought of all the details with this bag.

    What prevents liquid from seeping out through the zipper area?

  • Kenneth
    Kenneth – Special Guest
    10/21/2015 11:52 AM

    The zipper teeth are very tight which helps limit any leakage that could occur...also all the seams are taped inside so this helps to prevent leaks also. I had an entire bottle of hair gel explode in my bag on a trip to Hong Kong. Although my doppel bag was a mess...my clothes inside the suitcase were not...not a single drop escaped the clothes of our doppel bag...now that is magic!

  • Kenneth

    It is a thicker silicone, but not "food grade" so it is not heat resistant.

    @Kenneth Hi. What is the maximum temperature for the entire assembled unit. If it can reach 121-125 degrees C I may have a use.

    If it has some heat resistance can you provide the composition of the zipper, adjacent material around zipper and inside tape?

    Can steam pass through the zipper area or does that form a hermetic seal?

    If it is made of all one piece...then what do you mean when you say that the "seams are taped over"....if one piece, there should be no seams. WHY do you say it is all one piece and then say "taped internal seams to prevent leakage"? That is very contradictory.

  • Mike
    Mike – Grommet Team
    10/22/2015 9:28 AM

    Hi Sandra, thanks for the comment. It is made of one piece of silicone and because of that they fold in the silicone on the corners to create the shape. Because a fold might induce wear on the material, they put the tape in as reinforcement for that area to prevent leaks.
