Mens Pond Gloves
Mens Pond Gloves
Offered by Centre Sales Marketing Ltd
Price: 13.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Really practical, 4 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mens Pond Gloves
I bought these to use to maintain boat moorings in the early summer when the water is freezing. They are a fantastic product: can't think why we haven't bought them before for this job because even with waterproof gloves (of normal length) the water gets in at the wrists and the fingers get very cold. We've used these for 6 weeks now and the general consensus is: 'great and hope they last....'


KOALA PRODUCTS DLX OXFORD Neoprene Chest Wader Size 9 (43)
KOALA PRODUCTS DLX OXFORD Neoprene Chest Wader Size 9 (43)

5.0 out of 5 stars Robust, practical garment, 4 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These arrived very promptly; and are the second pair we've ordered. We do a lot of work maintaining boat moorings and these waders are fantastic because of the welly bottoms, common to most waders, but the thick, warm neoprene keeps you toasty warm and its a pleasure to stand waist deep in freezing cold water because you don't feel it!! But beware - do not buy a bigger size (say because you want to wear thick socks) because these are very adequately sized. My menfolk (size 9/10 feet) wore my size 7s until I ordered the size 9s reviewed here. In fact, a size 8 would probably be better for both men.


The Cuckoo's Calling (Cormoran Strike)

4.0 out of 5 stars It's different, 10 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like this genre so I might have chosen this book but I wouldn't have guessed it's written by JKR if the secret wasn't out in the open. Of course, the language is beautifully crafted as one expects from JKR but it's harsh and there are a lot of sweary words, which makes it gritty. Cormoran Strike is a complex hero; his qualities are well hidden in the text so you only get glimpses of the fact that he is attractive, courageous etc. However his less likeable qualities - he has lost part of his lower leg; he smokes; he lives in his office because he's fallen out with his girlfriend - are obvious. The character that I particularly like is Robin - the office temp - a bit of a shining star. The portrayal of the modelling world, where the victim resided, is interesting and I suspect, very true to life. I don't know if the Cuckoo was murdered or committed suicide yet but I'm looking forward to finding out!!


Compact Portable Hard Drive Case

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly as described, 31 July 2013

A robust case with an elastic strap to hold the hard drive; and a mesh pocket in the lid. I bought it in bright pink so I could find it easily in dark places. Looks like it will give years of service.


Casio F-91W-1YER Men's Resin Digital Watch
Casio F-91W-1YER Men's Resin Digital Watch
Price: 6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Old faithfull, 31 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The only watch my husband will consider buying; it's been the same for years; thank goodness it's still available. The watch lasts forever, the strap eventually breaks after circa 10 years hard wear but it's almost cheaper to buy a new watch than replace the strap. Great value for money, simple and 'timeless'!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy a 27" monitor if you ever want to use a small one again, 7 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Because this was quite an expensive purchase, we read all the customer reviews first; and we agree with the majority that said: it comes out of the box; set up is easy and it's a great quality product for the price. It took us time to find the rather subtle screen controls on the right hand side of the screen but that's because we're old and need spectacles! The only problem is that no one in the family now wants to use the other computer with the little 17", very dull in comparison, screen. Absolutely recommended and a very quick delivery to our rural location.


Dreamland Intelliheat Fleecy Heated Single Mattress Protector
Dreamland Intelliheat Fleecy Heated Single Mattress Protector
Offered by KC ELECTRICALCO
Price: 56.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Expensive but quality product, 7 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This wasn't the cheapest product on the market but a friend had recommended it. And as it was for an elderly lady to keep her warm overnight, it seemed to be the best option because it was a mattress protector and washable if necessary. I was concerned that the controls would be confusing for an older person but actually they weren't. There are no instructions about the use of the blanket except on the back insert and those are pictorial so you have to work it out. There are 2 buttons on the front: the one on the left is orange and shows a person and is used to select the heat setting. There are 6 heat settings - 6 (the hottest) is red and is only used as a speedy heat before getting into bed. If you continue to click, the heat settings rotate around 1 (coolest) to 6 (hottest) - and the most comfortable while in bed in a cold room seems to be 2 or 3. Then on the right there is a button (green) to set the time blanket is to be on: so either 1 hour or 9 hours. This also turns the blanket off but there is a large firm slide button on the back for fail-safe turn-off. Arrived quickly; in use and excellent.

3.0 out of 5 stars Still to be convinced, 29 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We purchased this as an thermomenter to keep an eye on freezer temperatures, which stores organic beef for sale. We still need to be convinced that it is 97% accurate since it seems that the recorded temperature of 'boiling water' seems to fluctuate depending on the container that it is boiling in. But to check that the thermometer is recording correctly in the freezers, we need to use a calibrated thermometer, which involves another purchase...so we can't give it an absolutely water-tight endorsement yet. But its easy to use and fun to play with..

It does exactly as it says on the box; easy to use and seems to be robust; a good addition to the workshop. I don't need to say more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer Enjoyment, 17 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Knight's Tale [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
This is a wonderful tale - there's nothing nasty in this film - the characters all develop their own quirks - Paul Bettany is so funny as Geoff Chaucer. Also the juxtaposition of modern day music that rocks to the 14th Century tale of knights and the joust adds to the enjoyment. And despite a really unpleasant baddie, there's a good ending.
