1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and poor quality, 10 Sep 2014
Very poor quality - hence why it's cheap.

has a very low thread count which is why it's not very strong and tears unevenly. Not very sticky either, just very very cheap poor quality.

I received two rolls which were not branded as shown - just plain white inner rolls.

Avoid unless you want cheap rubbish.

5.0 out of 5 stars lovely, tasty ears!, 9 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great quality, large pigs ears. Much better than others I've tried. Well worth spending the extra. My dogs go mad for them and Tom my border collie (who sadly passed away a few days ago) would always tilt his head like mad when "pigs ears" were mentioned! Even more than "walkies" or "going on holiday for swims"!

Being a fan of pork scratchings, I did think about trying one myself but chickened out in the end! lol

Great tin - nice and big for large loaves. Never had a problem with release - loaves slide straight out and without oiling.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable and definitely helps, 9 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Over about 2 months, I've definately felt a difference using these compared to a shoes standard insert. It hasn't helped my plantar fasciitis to get any better (yet) but it eases the pain when on my feet for long periods.

Only down side is that it looks like the sponge parts are getting quite flat, so not sure how long they will last and still give the cushioning benefits. Would love to see a gel type insert that works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent bag - particularly for the price, 9 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
EXCELLENT! I love this bag so much, I want to sleep next to it! ;)

I bought it to take a laptop and several lenses as my 'personal bag' on a BA international flight - it easily fits the second personal bag dimensions whilst allowing plenty of room for my VAIO laptop, Canon 70-200 L series lens and 3x primes + various other bits n pieces. Nice strong fastening buckle plus velcro (if needed, otherwise one side of the velcro can be folded back so it doesn't make the annoying sound when on set).

Top handle is well placed, shoulder strap secure and padded so very comfortable. There are also two side pouches with elastic to hold them closed when not in use.

Highly recommended, particularly if you need something to 'smuggle' your additional camera kit onto carry-on in addition to your cabin bag (flights and airlines vary of course but it works with BA).

Note on colour - the actual colour is a much paler green/brown than the photos show. The colour in the photo's look a lot more green than it is.

Highly recommended and a great price too, particularly when some camera bags out there cost 2-3 times more.

Great tape - nice matt finish. A little harder to tear by hand than other gaffer tape though, often needing something sharp to start the tear. Good and sticky as expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very powerful - beware., 9 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great - very strong. Bought to disolve calcium carbonate buildup on fish tank items. Beware as used neat it will also soften and disolve some plastics. I put it in a plastic jug and an hour later, the jug had cracked and the acid leaked out!

Great when used carefully though.

2.0 out of 5 stars Flimsy and plugs don't seat properly, 9 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not very well made and very flimsy. Even worse, UK 3 pin plugs don't fully plug in without a fight and then push out a bit with the case slightly moving apart. There's clearly something pushing back on the plug. Potentially dangerous I believe. Obviously not enough room in the case to fully hold the plug pins. I just get the feeling it will fall apart fairly quickly with repeated use. Not tried it plugged in yet as I don't travel until next week.

The dark areas on top shown in the photo are actually individual switches for each socket and the USB charging ports. That's not mentioned in the description and difficult to make out in the single photo.

Definitely not worth £25 - maybe if the build quality and operation was better it would be.
