Argos Set of 3 Garment Carriers
Advantages: Great for suits, cheap and practical
Disadvantages: see review for more details
I was invited to a close friends wedding last year, I was going to the day and night reception. My friend was having her wedding at a rather posh country house in Aberdeen and my husband decided to book into a near by cheaper hotel the night before so we did not have to travel the 150 miles on the day of the wedding. I bought a rather expensive maxi dress for the wedding it cost me £120, I do not usually spend that much on dresses but it was a special occasion so I decided to splash out. The dress did not come with a garment bag and I only had a one in my wardrobe but it was for a suit.
I did not want to put my dress in a suitcase as it would end up crushed and look a mess, my mother informed me that argos had a set of 3 garment carriers including one for a dress for £7.99. I reserved them on-line and collected them that day.
When I got them home I opened them and instantly noticed they had a awful chemically smell on them, very strong pvc smell. It turned my stomach it was that bad. I ended up putting my hangers on them and hanged the on my washing line to air them out as I did not want the smell transferring onto my new dress. After a few hours they smelt much better but I sprayed them with my perfume just to be on the safe side.
They came as a set of 3, 1 for a dress and 2 for suits, I feel this was good value for money. The garment carriers are mainly black in colour but have a beige piped edging going around the edges of the carriers. They look really good and I think the extra piping detailing makes them look quite elegant. They have black zips and zip up the centre of the carriers. The suit carriers dimensions are H91xW58xD7cm. The dress carrier dimensions are H120xW58xD7cm.
They are easy to use, you pop your suit or dress on a suitable hanger and place it into the garment carrier, there is a small hole at the top of the carrier that you slot the hanger through and then zip the carrier up. They protect clothing from dampness, dust, sun light and keep clothes from becoming creased. The argos carriers do infact help to protect clothing and im glad I did purchase them to protect some of my best clothing.
They have really came in handy, my husband travels a lot through his job and is always wearing suits to work. He has found them handy when away from home as he can hang them up in the car and also I organise them so his shirts and ties are in the garment bag to. Apparently this saves him time but I think hes too lazy to organise himself.
I have a few negatives I feel I must point out, the bags are made from a rather thin pvc type material and I have noticed that they wear away around the hanger slot quite easily and my husband has also managed to jam the zip on one of the suit carrier. This is after owning them for at least a year so I suppose its not to bad considering the price of them.
I did manage to fit in my maxi dress but had to slightly fold it at the bottom, I wish the dress bag was just a little longer. Overall I am impressed enough to buy them again, they do protect your clothes and are excellent for suits or dresses shorter than a maxi dress. I feel argos offer good value for money on the garment carrier and I highly recommend them.
Summary: would recommend and buy again!
