4.0 out of 5 stars Good stuff, 24 Jun. 2015

This review is from: Onward & Sideways (Audio CD)
A very good album by a very underratted artist. Its not as good as Simple Times and frankly, I didn't care for the addition of Sheryl Crow, but the songs are nice and melodic with thoughtful lyrics. In short there is nothing new, which is not a bad thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Pack, 24 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a nice piece of kit. Its quite a large backpack and folds down into a small self contained pouch. I don't see any issues with using this as a day pack when traveling or as an emergency luggage piece (like when you are at the airport and overweight, and need to take stuff out of your suitcase!!!).

It has space for two water bottles and an outer mesh compartment that is secured by the buckle...I would have preferred a zipped compartment. The inside has one pocket that becomes the pouch into which the bag packs into, and fortunately its not detachable. The straps all seem to be quite solid as do the seams. Time will tell on how they last, but I am optimistic at this point.

Finally the main straps are meshy nylon for comfort and cooling; I hope that they remain strong to enough to carry the bag when loaded!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars time will tell..., 24 Jun. 2015

It fits fine, and looks ok. That's the good side. Its made of something that is not really straw and the brim is a little too floppy for my liking but you cant get a real panama for the price. More importantly as this is going to be used as a travel hat I had expected that it would come collapsed, ie in a tube rather than in a big box. There is no tube so how does the manufacturer expect me to travel with it?? :O

As other reviews have mentioned, the longevity of the material remains to be seen. The hat has reverted to the original shape after being crushed somewhat in a suitcase so perhaps it will not be too bad. Fingers crossed!!!


Loake Kempton Suede Boots (8 UK)
Loake Kempton Suede Boots (8 UK)
Offered by Clermont Direct Ltd
Price: £190.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Best chukka boots!!!, 5 Jun. 2015
Outstanding. That is the only word for these boots. They look fabulous, the suede feels buttery soft and are incredibly comfortable. The danite sole is not at all chunky and durable.

The issue again comes with sizing. Despite having several loake shoes I found that I needed to go down a half size to get a proper fit. My regular 9 was too big. So do have a try in person before buying.

Lastly the colour changes with the light source. Indoors they seem to be quite dark. But out doors they are a lighter shade of brown.

But nonetheless they are an awesome addition to the wardrobe. Go with everything, and even with brown/tan/olive suits.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great but try in a show before..., 5 Jun. 2015
They look great and are informal classics. They go well with jeans and with khakis. The beeswax looks better than the suede ones IMHO. That's the great part.

The big issue with them is fit. I tried several sizes in the store and then settled on half a size smaller than my original. The general recommendation is to go down a whole size but I found that was too tight for my feet. The half size though a bit large was more comfortable.

Well it's take a some time (couple of months) to break them in and they are quite comfortable now. I did get them totally wet in the rain which may have helped to shrink them a bit!

Bottom line is that while these are great lookers, there are too many issues with for. So try in a store before buying!!!


Pacsafe CashSafe Secure Travel Belt Wallet
Pacsafe CashSafe Secure Travel Belt Wallet
Offered by ALL OUTDOOR LTD
Price: £17.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for all travellers, 31 May 2015
This is an outstanding product and accomplishes the job perfectly. You can secrete USD2000 easily into the compartment and feel totally safe that no one will know or can pick pocket you. The buckle is plastic and quite solid so no issues there. It is a friction design so over a period of time it loosens around the waist especially if you are sitting etc but that's not a big problem...simply re tighten!!!

More importantly, the plastic buckle means that you don't have to take it off at the airport which preserves it security as well as makes things easier for you to manage. It does not look like a "travel item" either.

Good but not great. Some gems here but not on the same scale as some of his earlier albums.
