The dhb Jersey Bin isn't a place to dump your unwanted cycling tops, it's a sealable plastic wallet to hold money and other valuables when you're cycling.
If you use it to hold cash or credit cards, it certainly keeps stuff dry and clean. But its rectangular shape seems unnecessarily high and it sticks out the top of some jersey pockets. It's wide enough for a standard mobile phone, but iPhones and other smartphones are a bit of a squeeze. The seal is surprisingly hard to open too.
I usually protect my money and phone when out on the bike by putting them in a plastic bag as, I suspect, do most other cyclists. The Jersey Bin doesn't really offer anything extra.
Selling for £2.99, it's hardly going to break the bank, but I can't help feeling you'd still be better off spending your money on a pack of resealable freezer bags.
Gadget for holding money and valuables. Cheap, but is it really necessary?
road.cc test report
Make and model: dhb Jersey Bin
Size tested: Transparent
The wallet is made from tough plastic, but the water-resistant seal is surprisingly hard to open.
If you use it for holding just cash and cards, it's fine, although it's taller than it needs to be and sticks out the top of some jersey pockets. But if you want to use it for a smartphone, it's only just wide enough.
It's cheap, but if you want somethiing to protect smartphone, cards and cash, a good, old-fashioned freezer bag does the job just as well.
