5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, 17 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Im glad I went for the higher capacity option of 120..etc. It works well, feels solid goes the job and is designed well. I like the added torch feature, practical and nice touch! It's been to poland, germany and various places i nthe UK. I can depend on it and it's really nice to have the confidence to have spare power thats so portable. I found it a must with the Galaxy S2, but still find it useful with Galaxy S4. I also use it with other USB devices when im teaching yoga and for other things.

Im not going to write much what with all the other reviews. I love this it works the way it should and looks good. Holds its charge well and audio quality great. I have used Galaxy S2 with it, but recently upgraded to S4 and both phones work very well with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good and value for money, 17 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This case is excellent, its water proof I proved it with tissue paper inside case before submerging, wasn't going to put phone in that situation until had proved it works. I haven't had chance to use it in rough coniditions yet, but it gives me confidence and im excited to use it in rainy/windy outdoors. I know it will protect the phone. It's really cools being able to use phone underwater :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Second order, good enough first time!, 17 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have ordered a second set, not yet arrived as the first set work really well. Easy to clean. You can't damage them like a metal pair I have. Metal bends out of shape and the metal ones I got form a shop have black paint thats comming off. So long as you dont cut them accidently these should be fine and robust.

I can't say much, this product does exactly what it says on the tin. very usable and looks nice enough. It's a brilliant price compared to other products that cost alot more, although I haven't tried those products which probably have more features (I hope).

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent case - slighly fiddly to fit but not too bad at all, 17 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Im not going to mark this product down to 4 stars just because it's fiddly to fit case. I nearly sent this back, got as far as priting return paperwork. 4th time I tried to fit the case before sending it back and managed to get it to fit fully. The trick is to seperate the black back part (bit with stand) from the rubbery case. Fit the rubbery case as snuggly as possible, then fit the hard back place and where it's not fitting smooth push and maintain pressure from the back up round over the troublesome fitting point.

The case feels very good quality and its brilliant case feels rugged and secure. Glad I got the case.. I suggest to the seller to include a slip of paper with some guidance for fitting.

Edit: I just received an email from the manufacturer. They appreciated my feedback about fiddly nature and have passed it on to their design team. They said they like any feedback good or bad and like to improve where needed. So I would be very happy with buying anything from this company now, not just this case :-) Happy days.

Edit: 26th January - Okay ive had this case a little while, and when I do swap the case to one of the others I got, I don't feel as confident. Normally I switch back to this case. I really do like it. It feels so secure, the design is nice with the blue looking very very excellent in natural daylight. I think im addicted to this case now. It feels solid and good in the hand and the stand is very useful. Not sure I would feel confident with a case simpler or less protective than this one now. The company have an excellent design. It's growing on me alot. I was slighly hesitant before I bought it due to design etc, but I shouldn't have worried.

The stand works very well, and feels like it will last. although I said it's fiddly to fit, that should not put you off at all, it's just you need to put soft part on first, then the hard part and finally just smooth and fiddle the last bits into place, but thats expected for a snug secure and solid fit. So this is a very good sign and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Access to the buttons is great, on some cases you have to push really hard and almost hurt fingers. On this case it's a very light touch to use the buttons through the soft casing. All holes for various sensors and holes etc line up perfectly and have just the right amount of space. It feels very nice in my hands :-)

Brilliant case, im so glad I bought it even though I was apprehensive, especially with opnly one customer review available at time of purchase. The company are brilliant with the feedback I gave about including some guidance on how to fit. Especially for those who have never had a two part case before, like me!

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay but ..., 16 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The case in itself is okay, but it revolves around the strap anchor points meaning it very easily rotates upside down. My girlfriend was trying to always keep it zipped or clipped closed (or both), but the other day the 75-300mm lense fell out as a result of the rotating upside down. Fortuantly it fell onto soft ground and "seems" okay, not sure 100%, but seems to auto focus okay. As a result I will be buying another case for her, possibly using this to store my old EOS 10QD film camera.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good reliable bag with lots ro offer, 23 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I chose to rate this item because it is worth my time to review. It was difficult to judge if the size was what I needed. The other reviews helped with this respect, It fits in my backpack, not overlay large or overlaly small backpack. The top zip bewildered me for a bit as in to why, but it actually proves its worth in some situations. Fortuantly I haven't needed to use the built in rain cover, so can't comment on that. The bag has been to Poland and back.

At present I store the EOS 6D body with 24-105 USM L series lense. Along with the EX430II Speedlight flash the the canon bracket/coiled lead for off camera shooting.

The bag comes with card holders and stuff. I am able to also fit keys, wallette and some batteries, spare camera battery, two sets of AAs for flash (8 x AAs) and a few other bits.

So it's a good bag, quality is excellent, and all those pockets and details that have been thoguht about makes it best bag ever I think. Obviously compare like with like, if it's not big enough it won't be for you. But it is a good bag for the size. I would buy another one if I needed too.
