Review: Pursesuitz Pocketwear Tank

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I don’t know about all the other ladies out there, but I’m so tired of pockets in women’s clothing either being super shallow or non-existent. Sometimes, you just don’t want to carry a purse or other bag, or you aren’t allowed to bring one into a venue, but your pockets are insufficient for keeping things inside or secure. 

What's a girl to do when her pockets are neither big or secure enough to hold things? We get a Pursesuitz Pocketwear Tank.

More than once I’ve put something in the pocket of my jeans only to sit down and for it to fall right out. Cool. The only useful pocket is a back pocket where I put my phone, but I’m 100% not putting anything else in there, not just because my phone is already in there. So, what’s a girl to do? Well, we get a Pursesuitz Pocketwear Tank, of course. 

One of the new companies I met at the Travel Goods Show was Pursesuitz, founded by Barbara Zabawa. Barbara was also tired of never having sufficient pockets, so she did something about it and created a high-quality tank that has two large kangaroo pockets. They stretch across the whole bottom portion of the tank. She sent me home with a tank and I wore it on the way home and have worn it several times since. 

The tank has a compression feel and makes a really good base layer. This enables it to sit closer to your body and not look bulky under anything you’re wearing over it. The hem also has these elastic rows in order to keep it from rolling up or flopping around. I love it, because it helps keep you covered and doesn’t scrunch up around your waist. Today, I just wore it under my favorite hoodie, like a regular tank top. 

How big are these pockets? And how do they keep your stuff inside? Well, they’re pretty large. You can put your passport in there if you want. Your big phone will too. Honestly, I don’t know how they keep your belongings in. I’m obsessed with the pocket technology, honestly, because they somehow just suction closed like Velcro, but are super soft and make a really satisfying little “shoop” sound that’s super quiet. 

I turned up the volume as high as I could and still couldn’t hear it on my video above, so nobody around you is going to hear it, and possibly not even you. I DID make everyone I know feel the inside of the pockets, because the closing technology is so cool.

I wanted to prove how awesome this tank is. I’m wearing a small and you can definitely size up if you like a little more room, but know that it’s not going to sit as close to your body with all your stuff. Notice how the stuff in the pockets don’t even move, even while jumping around. 

Even with the tank not on my body, nothing falls out, such is the amazing pocket technology. Please ignore my intense facial expressions in these videos. Nobody told my face it was on camera. LOL!

If you’re on one of those budget airlines and have to limit yourself to a personal item size, this tank can help you hold more things on your person when a purse or belt bag would count as a second bag and cost you extra money.

Gotta keep hand sanitizer handy on the plane

Other cool things about this tank top: 

  • It’s made of recycled polyester/spandex
  • It’s machine washable
  • It’s moisture-wicking
  • It’s wrinkle-free
  • It comes in two colors so far – black and gray
  • It comes in sizes Small to 3X, so people of all sizes can wear it
you can’t even tell I’m wearing a tank with things in the pockets

It’s not just perfect for travel, where you don’t want to carry a purse through the airport or on the plane, but you can wear this for all these other activities:
  • A sporting event or concert where no bags or only stadium bags are allowed
  • A festival, where having a purse is annoying
  • Taking your dog for a walk
  • Going for a run or to the gym
  • Sightseeing in crowded areas where pickpockets are prevalent
  • When on public transportation
Stop carrying items around in your bra and keep them in convenient pockets instead. There’s so many reasons you’ll want to have one or more of these comfy tanks in your closet. I’ll definitely be keeping one in my travel bag. It’s a perfect layering piece, so can be worn in a variety of situations, too. 

Get yours now and support a great woman-owned travel brand, while adding a valuable piece to your travel (and everyday) wardrobe.

How would you wear this awesome tank?
