As Chris Evans found out, being the passenger in a car driven at high-speed can cause car sickness, even for the most hardy of travellers
Inside our sick bags (before use)
Back in January 2016 Chris Evans, the new Top Gear presenter, didn't have any of our top quality sick bags on board the Audi driven by racing driver Sabine Schmitz when he started to feel a bit queasy.
If he had, Chris may have avoided some of the adverse publicity attracted when he had to jump out of the car to be sick. For such eventualities, and no only for co-drivers of performance cars, we recommend keeping our Sickness Survival Pack to hand, five of our top quality sick bags, five antibacterial hand/mouth wipes and five mouth freshening mint imperials, which can also help with the car sickness.
In the first episode of series 23, co-presenter Matt LeBlanc ribbed Chris Evans about car sickness and we were delighted the following week to receive a call from the BBC asking if we could provide some bags for filming the next day. As Top Gear is filmed at Dunsfold Park, a few miles away from Chuckie Towers, we were able to supply some sick bags for the studio plus a Sickness Survival Pack for future filming.
Sadly, our sick bags didn't make it to the final cut, although the team have some help at hand if it happens again.
“Chuckie Bags for school travel - I found these several years ago when planning a week of travel for a group of 120 11-12 year old students. We've taken the bags on every trip, whether a day trip to a museum or a week-long overnight trip. Sometimes the bags have been used before the coach arrives at the airport! The teachers accompanying the students much appreciate have bags that are discreet and leak-proof. I just ordered another set of 50, which arrived the day after I had a dispatch email. My only suggestion for an improvement is to allow shipment to an address other than the billing address.”
At Chuckie Bags want you to be satisfied with the sick bags we send you. If you’re not pleased let us know and if we can we’ll put the matter right. If we can’t, we’ll refund your money, immediately and without argument.
We find very occasionally some people don’t get on with sick bags. If this is the case and you've used a couple, please let us know and we'll take back the remainder (we really don't want the bags you've used!). See our terms and conditions for full details.
