Ongrok was first introduced to me via one of my helpful staff members, she was particularly excited when I arrived one morning, and we then spent the day ogling their catalogue. I have since gone a little crazy and pretty much ordered their entire line-up for my shelves and to say I was excited when the boxes arrived is a slight understatement!
Designed in North America (AKA Canada) with what I would describe as a modern minimalistic flair. High quality materials are their go to; natural hardwoods, aircraft-grade aluminium as well as eco-friendly materials. Products that are sleek as well as discrete, a range designed with lifestyle in mind.
As for the name? Comes from the work “Grok”, a term used in Robert Heinlein’s novel – Stranger in a Strange Land. Definition? To understand something deeply, intuitively or by empathy. Which is exactly the philosophy Ongrok stands by!
The rise of medicinal marijuana in Australia has meant that certain accessories have become quite indispensable. Odour control is probably the biggest issue that many of my customers encounter, and I have tried to source many different products to help combat the problem. Appropriate storage is one area I have really focussed on as I want to store my own medication in the best way possible.
Ongrok makes a variety of storage bags, and this is the duffle bag, the largest bag in the range with an included detachable pouch provided. All their bags are designed to keep odours locked within and are water-resistant. 1000D Poly Fabric is used to craft their bags making them very durable and high quality. There is no Velcro of any sort and the specially designed zippers stop any odours from accidentally leaking out. The zippers are also waterproof and guaranteed by Ongrok.
The magic lies in the smell-proof, activated bamboo carbon lining. Activated bamboo carbon is the market’s best-performing material for the absorption of odours. It is gentler on delicate skin and performs better than other fabrics. The premise is quite simple; odours are absorbed within the “pores” of the carbon lining. They are captured in place. Over time the pores can become full, and a fantastic benefit of this bag is the ability to empty out the pores via heat (sun or the dryer) giving it a very long lifespan.
Ongrok understands how important it is to keep some products out of the hands of children and they provide a combination lock with each storage bag they manufacture, there are 2 in with this purchase.
