During the Kingdom Hearts 20th Anniversary event, SuperGroupies announced their second collab with the franchise with 45 brand new wearable accessories. We went over these products back in July, showcasing each product. SuperGroupies was kind enough to send us a gorgeous backpack inspired by Aqua, and an extremely comfortable and stylish jacket inspired by Riku. I'm honestly really impressed with both of these items, so I will be reviewing them for you all here today!
Starting off first the stunning backpack inspired off Aqua's attire. Judging from the pictures I was actually expecting a very small bag, sort of similar to the Loungefly size so I was very caught off guard how large it is. It has two main compartments, and two bottle holder style side pockets with string to tighten them around an object to keep them in place. The color of the backpack is a very similar color to Aqua's shirt, and the front compartment has an X design on it with Kingdom Hearts written on it with the Master's Sigil in the middle.
Inside the main compartment, it has lots of space allowing lots of room for things. I've used it a bunch since I've received it, and was able to carry lots of video game cases and photography accessories for my lightbox inside when I was travelling to a friends house.
What makes this backpack shine is the interior pattern. Both compartments on the front open to a black and grey checkerboard pattern with the franchise's symbols scattered about. In the main pocket on the back wall, a gorgeous stained glass pocket is sewn to the back themed to Aqua, showing her Wayfinder, the Land of Departure, and all three Wayfinders together and other symbols.
On the middle is a blue patch with the Master Defender Keyblade and a small Keyhole. It has a small little zipper to access the small pocket, givng you space for a wallet or some cards. The backpack overall can fit lots of things inside and is honestly very comfortable. One thing I do wish it had though, was some sort of Wayfinder keychain of some sort attached to one of the outer zippers to match the theme!
This jacket was one I was worried about at first, because of the size difference, but they really knocked it out of the park. It's a nice black color, and the sleeves have a shiny silver to them. It has two large pockets on either side, and a zipper pocket on the left arm next to some belts. The right arm's cuff also features a very small Heartless sigil which I thought was a really cool addition since it matches the one on the chest as well.
The main body has a sleek blue line of fabric going across. Inside at the collar, it features a gorgeous logo of the letter R in blue and black and checkered with Way to the Dawn going through it as well as the crown, a seashell, and another Heartless sigil.
I'm not much of a jacket person myself, but I found it really comfortable compared to most jackets you can buy. I would consider more of a springbreaker type jacket if I was honest, and it's probably not best for super cold climates. The best part about it was that it fit perfectly! If you're not wearing the hood, the top of the zipper's flaps fold back to have a lapel design, similar to Riku's jacket. The hood is a bit too big for me, but I'm sure someone taller than I am would fit right into it. I definitely plan to wear this one out more during the fall and springtime weather!
SuperGroupies definitely knocks it out of the park with their products. I've been curious about them for so long, and I'm so thankful to be able to review these two items. Their Kingdom Hearts products are all stunning and now that I've seen it first hand I wholeheartedly believe the remainder of the collab's products are the same touch of quality! I might be picking more up in the future!
