Spigen Slim Armor Cover Case for Nexus 5 - Smooth Black
Spigen Slim Armor Cover Case for Nexus 5 - Smooth Black
Offered by Keep in Case

5.0 out of 5 stars The only case i will ever buy for my smartphones again, 18 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What's great about this case is it's light, keeps the phone really well protected and importantly doesn't add that much bulk to the phone. Having had a Sony Z1 compared to my Nexus 5 (with the Spigen case on) there's not too much difference in noticable size. If you want a bit of extra protection (and keeping your phone in pretty mint condition) then get the Spigen case. I've never had a case on any of my phones before, but will certainly get a Spigen case for any future ones i get.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best waterproof jacket i've ever had., 18 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as i wanted a weatherproof (and windproof jacket) looked at heaps, but then decided to look at a golf weatherproof one as golf gear you can also wear out and about as well. It's the perfect jacket to throw over a t-shirt or jumper if (like me) you usually get pretty warm in jackets. I can wear a t-shirt under this and still keep warm enough and wind protected without overheating.
Also it looks great and fits perfectly. I got a L and i'm 6 foot 3, 100kg and the fit is great. Lots of other waterproof jackets are oversized and baggy (which i hate) yet this is quite fitted without being tight. Highly recommend for normal day to day wear, but also if you like a hit of golf, it'll go down a treat on the course.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why pay so much more for the 5S?, 16 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great phone for those that want an Apple but also want value for money.

Simply, the difference between this and the 5S is the casing, a slightly better processor a fingerprint reader and some minor camera differences.

But, most people have a cover for their phone, so the casing is irrelevant, the fingerprint reader on the 5S is a gimmick and the camera and processor differences you'll never notice anyway.

Aside from those things, this is the same as the 5S yet hundreds cheaper. Don't view this as the "cheap" iPhone 5S view it as the far superior value for money. Save yourself heaps of cash and spend it on a Dyson DC44.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kitty Hair Go Bye Bye, 16 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We live in a one bedroom flat and have a Ragdoll cat, so that means a big fluffy white cat. His hair gets EVERYWHERE. Like i mean everywhere, we would vaccum, lint brush, hand brush the carpets, couches, floors...you name it but we just never seemed to get rid of the kitty hair.

We've now had the DC44 for one day and the place has never been more free of kitty hair. The couch and bedroom have never been so free of his white fluff! The hair does get caught up a fiar bit in the mechanical head unit, but it's easy to remove it, and pull the tangled hair out.

This is easily the best vaccum I've ever had, and the mechanical head unit makes it even better. Sure it's not going to have enough charge for a 4 or 5 bedroom house. But if you've got a small one or two bedder, and need a compact vaccum you cannot go past the DC44. My girlfriend and i think we're both pretty sad for being so excited about a vaccum...but really this thing is the business.

Even if you already have a vaccum, if it's not a Dyson DC44 get one anyway, if anything it also looks really cool.

4.0 out of 5 stars Super versatile and good quality, 15 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I needed a camera/videocamera tripod for my work. i shoot a lot of photos and a lot of video but only use a mirrorless Sony NEX6. I typically do it on my own too. So i needed something sturdy, compact, good quality and able to be used for pan shots and still shots. This does all of the above. It's ultra compact, and i can fit it into my backpack with all my gear with ease. The height of it is spot on also and put it at eye level with me, pretty much, and i'm 6 foot 3. Also being able to use the roller adjust function to allow video pan or stable stills is really handy. Also the quick release for the camera itself is great. For the price, i couldn't find another better more versatile tripod. Manfrotto do a great prodcut and this is no different. It's prbbaly not suitable for full professional work but if you do a lot of amateur stuff or just home stuff on your own it's really great.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Tardis of Backpacks, 15 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fantastic well priced backpack. I've bought Under Armour gear before and this backpack certainly hasn't let me down either. Although it might appear small to start with it's huge on the inside and with all the compartments available. Having a laptop sleeve on the inner large compartment is a god send, it just helps seperate it from everything else. Then there's the secondary part, and a waterproof small compartment for anything you want to keep dry. Having said that there's the laundry pouch on the front bottom, although this actually takes up space in the main compartment it's easy to slide wet clothes, towel or shoes into to keep everything else separate from wet/smell stuff. Also the side net pockets are great, i usually have my umbrella in one and a water bottle in the other. Super handy.
I can fit in my laptop and cables, gym gear and a jacket and it's pretty full but that's as bout as much as i ever carry. Likewise i can fit in my laptop, cables, camera tripod, camera and lenses, and a jacket too and have it all in easily. Needless to say for the price, this is a quality prodcut, with heaps more space than you initially think. It's comfortable too and just a really well made backpack. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great back roller, 5 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having used a few foam rollers before this one's one of the better ones i've had. Being extra wide is a god send. I used to have one half the width and it's simply too hard to roll out the whole back. This one i can spread out and really get into the good spots.
The beast is good in that the uneven bumps on it do really sort out kinks in the muscles, downside of that is that it doesn't smoothly roll over the ground, because it's lumpy, it rolls lumpy too. So it's best used on carpet rather than timber floors as it gets more purchase on the carpet and tends to shift a little bit when on the timber floor.
It's also pretty firm, so if you're not one for a bit of enjoyable pain it might be too hard for you. I like it because whether its on the back, legs or even feet it really gets in there are you can roll the bejeezuz outta your knots and tight spots.
All in all its a cracking foam roller, highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best smartphone I've ever had, 14 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At first i thought the Z1 would be too big. Coming from a galaxy S2 i didn't think i'd get a bigger phone than that. Then within an hour of using my Z1 after it arrived i held my S2 again and it felt miniscule. Can never go back to a smaller phone now.
The camera on the Z1 is magnificent. Worth buying it for the camera alone...although the zoom function is pretty difficult to use as its hyper-sensitive. None the less it takes cracking shots and the filters and modification you can make to shots is great.
As a phone it's what you'd expect from a top notch android device. Is quick, no lag, and punches through tasks with ease. Battery life is exceptional too, watched a full HD movie on Netflix plus heavy use through out a day and made it till night time with a good 10 - 12% left. Will easily last a day under heavy usage.
Waterproofing is handy, it cool to be able to use the (excellent) built in speaker to listen to the radio in the shower. And then taking photos by the pool or beach without worrying about killing the phone is awesom too. All in all best phone i've ever owned.
