3.0 out of 5 stars OK for the price, 7 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are OK although the material is quite hard so it's worth washing them before using them. As to the colour, I would say they are definitely royal blue, nothing like teal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful piece of kit, 11 April 2016
Great to keep in the fridge to have nice, cold water ready, rather than running the tap for ages. I only gave it four stars because it's a tiny bit delicate, I think, as I have already broken two by banging them down on the table too hard...

1.0 out of 5 stars This is advertised as super king size but it's actually king size, 25 Nov. 2015
This is advertised as super king size but it's actually king size, ie only 5 ft wide - a whole foot smaller. Also, the fabric designed to hold the cover under the mattress ripped immediately I put it on, so I sent it back to Amazon for a refund immediately. Very poor quality.

1.0 out of 5 stars Description on Amazon and actual instructions are different, 25 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The description says it can be used inside and out, in temperatures of "-20C to + 60C" but the instructions say it cannot be used outside unless if fitted by a qualified electrician - do they mean just to plug the lights into the outside socket?! It also says the lights are "highly flexible and strong" but the instructions say the lights cannot be bent more than into a semi-circle. It is quite rigid. The lead is just under 2m long, which is reasonable but not generous. The colour of the picture on the site looks - to me - like a cream/yellow, even though the description is white. In fact, it is REALLY white.

Update 3 months later: it no longer works, having been used only sporadically over 3 months. Would not recommend this product at all

5.0 out of 5 stars Great tops, wash really well, 24 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have two of these, a man's and a woman's. I like them both a lot, but the man's one has become softer (which I like) over the years, whereas the woman's has stayed rather stiff. Also, the men's sizing is quite large, so most men will fit into an S. Really hard wearing, great product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant stuff, 24 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This film works really well. It is as easy to fit as they say (there is a YT video if you're interested). I had a slight gripe about the adhesive used to seal the roll but most of it comes off. The squares are not entered on the roll, so if you're picky you'll need to trim the edges to achieve that. Otherwise, an excellent product.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality, 23 Feb. 2015
This review is from: 24 felt floor profecors
Not only do these not last very long, but the nail is so weak that it's almost impossible to knock the pad into the chair leg without bending in and therefore rendering it useless.

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh dear, 22 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Needs a good editor, minimum. Usual tripe about Americans moving to France without having done any proper prep, let alone tried to learn the language prior to arrival. Almost all French cited is incorrect. So much repetition renders it more like a shopping list. Although author says he's only just over 60, sounds absolutely ancient. Boring!

3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't fit me properly (the dropdown list above doesn't give me this option as it only refers to size), 21 Dec. 2014
I've been wearing Lepel bras for years, always the same size. This is the first one ever which doesn't feel right. I like them because I they support me in the right places and feel comfortable. This one doesn't and feels like everything is hanging on the straps. It may be me that doesn't fit the bra, or it may be the bra's design - either way, it's a disappointment. (I have other T shirt bras which don't have this problem.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good product, 17 Dec. 2014

I bought several sizes and use them all the time. When they get a bit grubby, I put them in the dishwasher. Couldn't ask for more.
