Draper Expert 22203 Metric Hexagon and Ball End Hexagon Key Set (9 Pieces)
Draper Expert 22203 Metric Hexagon and Ball End Hexagon Key Set (9 Pieces)
Price: £17.76

5.0 out of 5 stars Colour Coordinated, 20 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not the cheapest allen key set on Amazon.
But definitely the easiest to use as you soon associate the different colours with the different sizes.
The holder folds out (as shown in the photo) but also folds back in on itself so it takes up less space for storage.
A great addition to my toolbox

The colour seems to stay on the tools well.
Would be great to have sockets or torx bits with same / similar colouring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great socks - they are actually waterproof, 20 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had a pair of sealskinz gloves for a while now, and they have always kept my hands dry and warm(ish).
Although not any good for tasks which require any dexterity eg. photography.

I was initially a bit sceptical about whether the socks would be waterproof and survive.
Pleasantly surprised to say that they are indeed waterproof and fairly warm too.
The socks feel a bit strange when you first put them on - kinda crinkly - but after a couple of minutes that feeling goes.

I am using them for mountain biking - you can forget shoes which claim to be waterproof for this as water just runs down your ankles and gets inside the shoe. So the idea of having a good shoe, but with waterproof socks is very appealing indeed.
Having splashed through plenty of huge puddles, streams of all descriptions too, over the last weekend, I am definitely impressed.

Comfortable and waterproof. Great combination. Well done SealSkinz.

4.0 out of 5 stars great clock for study etc, 20 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Large and clear display, I use this clock in my study, so I have the right time when I am working.
It seems to synchronise and set / adjust the time completely automatically, which is good.
Maybe not the best looking clock, according to my girlfriend, so best to put somewhere other than the living room !

5.0 out of 5 stars warm and dry hands ! whatever the weather !, 20 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Definitely a winter glove as they are warm. I haven't worn them in temperatures above 10 degrees centigrade yet.
Really well made too. Felt a bit tight across the widest part of the hand (despite having rounded up my measurements to the next size up), so if you have solid / big / chunky hands, you may need to order one size larger.

Keeps your hands warm and dry whatever weather is happening around you.
On recent cold and (very wet) rides, I've been the only rider with any manual dexterity left at the end of the ride.
Everyone else had lost sensation in their fingers.
Given that I "feel the cold" more than most in my hands and feet, I was really impressed by the performance of these gloves.

Only negative so far is that they do get heavy when wet.

But that's a price worth paying for the dry and warm hands.

Given that they are winter warmth gloves, I won't be wearing them in the summer, so I would expect this pair to last a few years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing case - like pelican, 20 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This case is really tough and robust - similar to Pelican cases for build quality - not quite up there, but comparable.
So you know its going to be a long lived item, and able to take whatever expeditions and life in general throw at it.
On the plus side, instead of having to cut out your own shapes from the foam (as you normally have to do with Pelican) this case has all the different shapes pre-cut, ready for your go-pro cameras and accessories.

Its a two "layer" case. The top layer holds the cameras and some other parts.
This top tray lifts out and reveals a larger storage area for all your mounts, cables, chargers etc etc.

The size is just right to hold most people's entire collection of go-pros and parts.
It comfortably holds all my mounts, cameras, chargers, cables, adaptors, batteries etc etc.
So keeps them all in one dust and waterproof place.

Not the cheapest case out there, but a real quality item that gives peace of mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real step above the rest, 20 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is definitely the best tool rack / hanging system I have ever seen.
Corrosion proof and so simple.

The weight of the tools themselves "pulls" the holders closed and holds the tools firmly in place.
A really simple, elegant and ingenious solution.
You can get extra bits and pieces too.

Great for garden and garages.
I think I am going to order another one...

Orange Tree Toys Music Box Owl And Pussy Cat
Offered by Perry International Ltd
Price: £14.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely toy, 20 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a really charming toy for any younger children.
Plays a nice tune for a few minutes, whilst the characters spin / dance on the top.
Very cute and guaranteed to amuse most children.
We use it as a lullaby for settling our daughter to sleep as she is too young to be able to wind up the box herself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great box for a day or two of gopro filming, 20 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This box is just the right size for holding a gopro camera, a few mounts and bits and bobs (like cables), some spare batteries, camera backs and the remote control.
The foam cutouts are stiff and hold the items firmly in place.
Ideal for packing everything you need for a day or two of gopro filming.
Keeps everything in one place and provides a reasonable degree of protection - so your camera won't be damaged in your backpack or car boot.

The only criticism I have of the item, compared to say pelican cases I have (although pelican are much more expensive) is that the foam cutouts go all the way to the outside of the box, so there is not much protection for items inside if something impacts the box from the top or the bottom. I would have preferred at least 10mm of foam protection from impacts from top and bottom eg. someone treads on the case which is on stony ground... which does happen! The stone would exert a lot of force on any item inside the case in this situation. So if you need this level of protection, or waterproof then you need to spend more.

However, for everyday use, this is a great case.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful charging lead, 20 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This lead covers off the vast majority of phone and tablets I have and use.
The old style apple connector is great for older iphones and ipads.
The Lightning connector is great for newer iphones and ipads.
And for normal phones and tablets, the micro USB covers them off.
Saves carrying multiple leads and chargers around - allows you charge your devices from any USB port or charger.

Overall very convenient and a great idea.
Good value too! Much cheaper than 3 separate leads.
I am going to order another one for my car so I can charge items on the move.


Swarfega Oil & Grease Wipes - Handy Pack 15 Wipes
Swarfega Oil & Grease Wipes - Handy Pack 15 Wipes

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for grease removal, 24 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
On the move, when out on the bike, often hands are dirty from putting chains back on, adjusting gears and brakes etc.
These handy wipes get your hands clean again.
I carry them with my bike toolkit.
I have them in my car too as the brake dust round the wheels and general road grime is cleaned off by them.
Good value for money too.
