5.0 out of 5 stars Good in wet and dry weather, 6 Jun 2013

A well designed rucksack will fit well, be adjustable for various loads, protect the goods carried, and will just as comfortable at the end of the trail as when first put on. This meets all these criteria and is smart as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good sox for walking, 6 Jun 2013

Many socks cause blistering because of a mixture of poor fit, thoughtless construction and poor choice of yarn. These socks perform well and do so with effortless comfort.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy, sharp and good in the hand, 6 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like Westhof knives. This one replaced a chef's knife broken by accident by a gardener attempting to open a coconut!
The replacement is a pleasure to use, well balanced and so sharp that it is very safe.
Thoroughly recommended but I will hide it from would be coconut openers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job effortlessly, 25 Feb 2013
Though expensive this is the mandolin that will be a feature of your kitchen till you retire from cooking.
The thickness of the slices can be varied but once set never deviate from the selected thickness - ideal for dauphinoise. The two julienne attachments provide for different widths and do give a salad a professional appearance.Be careful as the blade is very sharp and is also detachable and easily sharpened. I have had a new blade over the years and it is so easy to fit.
After 15 years of use I am utterly sold and I have now ordered one for my holiday home as the cheaper plastic one broke.


THE END OF THE TETHER [ANNOTATED]
THE END OF THE TETHER [ANNOTATED]

4.0 out of 5 stars Masterly Sea Yarns, 15 Jan 2013

Conrad's short fiction is not so well known as his great novels. They were written earlier and dwelt on his rich experiences in the merchant Navy. The taste of salt in these tales is strong but beyond the adventure of sailing is the deep psychological insights that he has into the lives of his characters which makes you read on as he makes you care as to their fate.There are no great surprises but like a rose bud there is great delight in seeing the flower unfold.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slow but sure, 15 Jan 2013
First time I have tried Green Coffee bean extract to help yet another attempt to loose weight. I ordered four cartons of the substance which arrived within ten days. No problems in taking the capsules but remembering to do so 30 mins before meals is a bind. They certainly make the diet easier and I do not get hunger pangs after a couple of hours. So far after three weeks I have lost 2 kg which I think is remarkable considering that my exercise is limited to about 40 mins per day because of the cold weather. I would recommend this preparation worth trying.

2.0 out of 5 stars Qick to die, 16 Oct 2012
I was very impressed with this cooker for the first two years of its life. Then it no longer held pressure despite a new seal. WMF suggested that I had made the whoe thing up as they produce flawless products - so no joy from the arrogant manufacturer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stylish Shower Equipment, 21 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite the knocking reviews I was impressed with the look and robust construction of this shower room accessory. It stuck very well with the silicone glue provided and after 24 hours filled it with soap/shower products with great ease. Simply saves all the clutter of a Shower tidy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money, 2 Aug 2011

Not worth the money. I should have known that sailing a yacht around a computer screen was a waste of time. Get out on the water, its more expensive but more fun and you learn quickly.

This review is from: Plague (Gone) (Hardcover)
My grand daughter wanted this book the moment she put down Lies, the preceding book in this series. I ordered it on line in the early afternoon and had it delivered to my door mid morning the next day. This is very impressive.
