THE TRAVEL TESTER PRODUCT REVIEW RATINGS

nlNederlands (Dutch)

We love to put travel-related products through the test here at The Travel Tester, and so we’ve developed our own unique ways of doing so.

On this page, you can find a bit more information about the ratings we use on the website:

 

Unboxing

  • Introduction of the company that made the product
  • Our expectations of the product
  • Our experiences with ordering, sending and delivery of the product
  • Our opinion on the packaging of the product & its eco-friendliness
  • Short overview of product features
  • Short overview of additional items that come with the product

The Travel Tester 5-Senses Test

All products that we review are subjected to our self-invented “5-sense-test”. Here we pay attention to:

  • LOOK
    • style, shape, features (pockets, zippers, handles), colours, sizes, etc.
  • SOUND
    • actual sound, sound of moving zippers, sound the fabric or material makes, but we also listen to the sound of the brand promise about the product.
  • SMELL
    • actual smell, but also how the idea of this product ‘smells’ to us: when would we use this in the future?
  • FEEL
    • feel of the fabric / material, softness, weight, carry comfort and also ease of use.
  • TASTE
    • actual taste and possible ingredients, but also if the product is to our ‘taste’ (our style) or not.

 

We always end our 5-senses test with the question: Does this product make us happy?
