5.0 out of 5 stars Best shoes for casual use, 13 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Best shoes in the world.

I have three pairs, i used to sell them in a mountain shop and i would often get repeat customers buying new shoes as they decided their current merrel trail gloves were worn out (ive got a years use of everyday out my last pair).

The shoe is great for walking, it may take a few weeks getting used to but once your in them wearing normal shoes really shows the lack of connection you get from your feet and the ground you stand on.

Personally i wear these shoes everyday i can, and bring them with me everywhere as they're so comfy and also so light and packable! They make a great holiday shoe wear space and weight is important. Great for driving as they're no more than 5mm thick for great feeling. Lots of fun hiking too, get for scrambling as they bend fluidly over rocks with your feet!

Running in these shoes however is a real challenge. i still cant run in these they might as well be five fingers. I keep them to walk in, its the only shoe i could wear whilst working in a shop standing on hard tiles for 8 hours.

The colours are true to the images, red/black are the most subtle and orange/grey are probably the most noticeable! The orange however do unglue!!! I don't know why only the orange in 10.5, as my other pairs have held true to the day but the orange shoes unglued, not just with mine but a friends in the same place in less than 2 weeks. I would not let that put you off there are a great shoe!

It is a summer shoe, even with thick socks they give little warmth. So keep it in mind. there is a gore-tex version available, but the sole is much stiffer and very much a different shoe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy 2 part case with all the trimmings, 13 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The case comes in two parts, a rubber shell + a plastic cup shape (that is the green section)

The rubber section covers the case tightly and the rubber is soft to the touch, more importantly it is grippy!
The access and functionality to the buttons are alined correctly and the corners are given adequate protection.

The plastic Green cup is a tight fit, i needed a blunt knife to fit the rubber through the volume controls, but once on it is there to stay.

The raise from the screen to the edge of the case will ensure the case will not scratch without being too bulky to get in the way of the screen functions.

The green colour is the same fluro colour seen above, which works against the blue s3 that i own.

I would recommend this case, but make sure you your s3 is the i9300 as it may not fit as snug

5.0 out of 5 stars great product, 2 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tranz X Tri Bar - Black (Sports)
Great product, very light, and very straight forward to use

The raise in the bars is very comfortable, and it adds two different angle for your wrists to be set on over long periods

The length is easy to adjust and i recommend adding one road handle bar tape to cover both bars for enjoyable ride (hands will freeze other wise)

Pads are thick, and two bolt holes to personalise the spacing of the pads from the mechanism.

Best buy i found for under £50/weight ratio

Using them 2 years and still going

4.0 out of 5 stars decent case that gives allot of protection + grip, 2 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This case is in fact two, one plastic shell that adds alot of bulk to the iphone, loosing its thin appeal. And the second a rubber case that wraps the first plastic case.

Plastic is good, rubber has a good amount of stretch/give in it, protecting the iphone form any drops and falls it may have. I've dropped this phone allot and no damage!
The raise int eh front of the case does make some of the keys harder to use, its about 3/4mm so no surface will damage the screen, but the screen protector. Rubber is very grippy which you need to wiggle it out of tight trousers.

All the access points are in very good positioning and you can access the volume, charger and mute key easy enough. The speaker and microphone seem to preform fine too, and most importantly the home button has no issues either.

Over all a great case, for under £10 it cant be missed, i do get comments on the size but it does do what its ment to and protect the phone!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars GOOD BUY FOR FIRST TIMERS, 18 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this tri suite is actually pretty good (ok it my first. but i was surprised by the strength and material)

im 5'11, 85Kg, chest 39'', waist (done myself not by clothes) 36'
Bought - 34'' Waist.

this suite was a very good fit!

there aren't any other reviews on here so im going to shed allot more light on this...

the material is made from 80% Nylon & 20% Lycra

the zip reaches down just past my rib cage though its not hot enough to tell if this is deep enough to cool me down in training/racing

the grip on the inner seem around the legs is good, not over stretched or loose at all.
my legs are about 23/24 inches where worn and have been a problem in getting cycling shorts that don't come up high enough up my legs for sufficient padding

the Padding is better than expected. its fleece on the inside and it has been comfortable running and swimming so far. im yet to take it on a proper bike ride but its a little less padding to what im used to so i need to practise.

the colours are brighter than the picture, the blue is more lighter navy blue and the red is also very strong. (good if you want to be seen whilst wearing this by cars ect)

im not sure if using this in the pool will destroy the fabric, i tested it earlier and it was comfy and the zip undone gave a lot of drag if you were thinking of making training a little harder. Though i think ill get some more swimming trunks incase
im testing it out in a wet suite tomorrow but im sure ill be fine

i do find that my 'assets' are on display as they ride into the left or right of the suite which may turn heads in the park, but having seen races it would probably be overlooked

These are a great buy so far, we shall see how the seems hold up (big question on any cheap product..) but the suite is comfortable on the body & wallet so lets hope ill still be using this right into next season...

ill post an update in a years time or when the outfit gives up but happy so far.

=

- 2 Years Later -

The product is still used, it hasn't unthreaded or lost shape, but I've learned form other products not to ring out clothes after swimming, just squash it in a ball and squeeze together that'll give the material a better life! Also wash by hand, with eco products.

Zip is doing fine, and the colours are still strong, my gf prefers i wear this tri suite my more pricy ones as she can spot me easily!

Would recommend for a triathlete on a budget or realises early that the hour you spend training smart is better that eh hours you spend working for 'top kit'

good luck!
