Pack of 4 Adults Emergency Waterproof Rain Ponchos with Hoods - Festivals & Camping (Transparent)
Pack of 4 Adults Emergency Waterproof Rain Ponchos with Hoods - Festivals & Camping (Transparent)
Offered by Gulliver's Travels
Price: £4.15

4.0 out of 5 stars Small packs very handy, 25 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These ponchos are very handy to keep in your bag or car for emergencies.
The pack size is small and thin so you can easily store / carry the ponchos until you need them.
I keep them in my car in case of breakdown on motorway or if we get caught out with bad weather on a family day out.

2.0 out of 5 stars The item delivered only has a 5 or 7 cm long cable, 25 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So the photo is misleading.
The photo shows a cable about 20cm long which is what I wanted.
But it was very disappointing that the item arrived with a 5cm lead which makes it much harder to use on my devices and docking stations...

4.0 out of 5 stars Makes cleaning even very mucky bike chains simple, 6 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This tool is great. I'm pleased with it.

Even filthy mountain bike chains will be cleaned by it in a few minutes, without using lots of chain cleaner / de-greaser.
The see through plastic is sturdy enough to last a while, but transparent enough to see what is happening inside.
The amount of fluid used is reasonable, and if you really need to, you can do two washes: one to get the worst of the muck off and the second to restore your chain to showroom cleanliness.
Setting up the tool for cleaning takes a couple of minutes, actual cleaning about a minute, and sorting out the tool afterwards about another two mins. So allowing for drying the chain and re-lubricating, you can do a total chain clean and maintenance in about 10 minutes which I think is great. Far better results than any other method I have found.

Removing all the muck from the chain removes the "grinding paste" of sand and old oil from the chain, so the chain and all other drive chain components will last longer and have lower resistance.

Why 4 stars? Two reasons...

1) The magnet in the bottom of the case could do with being a bit stronger to attract the metal to it faster.
I have added an extra magnet into mine to "mop up" any metal filings more rapidly.

2) the price is a bit high for what is effectively a few bits of plastic and a couple of sponges and brushes

tip: the chain cleaner acts as a derailleur so you need to hold it quite steady (in and out towards the wheel) or you end up changing gears and possibly coming off the front cogs

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy charger for GoPro : at home and on the move (car cigarette lighter 12V), 24 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As you know, gopro cameras are fantastic and capture amazing footage in all sorts of places.
One of the key advantages of the gopro cameras is their small size.
However, this is a disadvantage when it comes to their battery as the life is not that long (and can get lower in cold conditions).
This means that for more than an hour or so filming, you need to carry spare batteries.

This item has a mains charger, a UK lead, and a 12V in-car charger lead (which is great as you can now charge batteries on the move and away from mains power supplies). It also comes with two spare batteries. Ideal !

I was worried about whether the batteries would have a similar capacity or life to the gopro originals as they are obviously cheaper.
However, so far (a couple of weeks of use skiing and mountain biking) I can report that they seem to hold their charge and last the same time as the gopro battery that came with my camera.

So all in all, a very useful extra for your gopro to get more from your camera and your days out.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not tough enough for everyday use or hot liquids, 24 Feb. 2014
This jug is great for measuring cold liquids.
The scale is really easy to read - which is great.
And the handle does provide a good / positive grip.
However, its made of plastic - so its not that strong.
For £10, I was expecting something tougher and more sturdy
So if you want to do things with hot liquids, you will be better off with pyrex or similar material.
Also it scratches really easily if you use metal implements or try to clean it with anything abrasive.

After about 3 or 4 years, even with careful use, mine has cracked and now leaks and is useless.
I will be replacing it with a similar size measuring jug made from pyrex!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great USB charger unit, 24 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Small, white, inconspicuous.
Allows most households to charge most of their USB phones, tablets, gadgets in one place.
I have mine in the study, hidden behind some books on a shelf, with just the USB wires protruding to charge gadgets.
Efficient use of a single socket to charge lots of devices simultaneously.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice simple and effective LED's for sidelights, 24 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have an Audi A6 Avant which has the canbus sensor system (ie when you start the car, all electrical systems are checked for faults like broken bulbs).
These LED bulbs are canbus-safe, ie the canbus does not report any errors.
They are not the brightest sidelight bulbs I have ever seen, but I expect they will now last the lifetime of the car (which is a relief as changing the bulbs on an A6 is a real pain). The light is a nice crisp and bright white.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compulsive viewing - totally absorbing, 24 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rush [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
A fab film for Formula 1 fans and non-fans alike.
A very compelling story of rivalry between two complete opposites.
Well filmed and pit together.
The blu ray edition is visually stunning so worth upgrading from a DVD if you have a blu ray player.


Personalized Custom Gearbag Zipper Pull ID for Snorkelers and Scuba Diving
Personalized Custom Gearbag Zipper Pull ID for Snorkelers and Scuba Diving
Offered by Dolphin Scuba Center
Price: £8.62

5.0 out of 5 stars amazingly versatile zipper pull, 22 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was pleasantly surprised when I received the item.
The items arrived quite quickly and were well packed.

The writing is really clear and legible, stops your (normally black!) wetsuit from getting mixed up with someone else's.
The tags are just a great size (the webbing is about 6 inches long) for use on:
drysuit zips, wetsuit zips (chest entry wetsuits for example), gear bags etc etc.

They will easily replace existing zip pulls or loop onto metal zip pulls (larks head knot - or cow hitch).
I would probably get the longest ones for back zip wetsuits, but the gear bag ones are fine for most applications.

Overall, great product and I will probably be ordering some more. Good value.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great base layer for active sports, 20 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great base layer for active sports like running or mountain biking.
The fabric wicks effectively, and even helps ( although clearly does not eliminate ) cold sweaty patches underneath rucksacks (on your back or under the shoulder straps).
Very lightweight too, but should last a while. Not itchy which is a big plus in my view.
Fabric is very stretchy so fit should be good providing you are fairly close to the size guide.
