It's so simple and stylish, every desk and every bedside table should have one. J-ME guys deserve an award, it's just perfect.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tight!, 16 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The cover protects from the rain quite well and it looks very stylish in comparison to other bicycle covers I've seen, but because it is sooo tight, taking it on and off takes some time. The tightness also caused my breaks to rip the cover slightly when the bicycle fell on its side during a stormy night. The openings for the lock are a good idea, but I wasn't able to use them, since my bicycle has a low-step frame.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, 17 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought a couple of these for duvets and pillows. Excellent space-saver. It's a little tricky to get the air out, but the result is exactly like promised. There's a little labyrinth-like system to let the air out on the opposite side from where you close the bag, so, if having problems rolling the bag, check for creases there, straighten them, and voila!

4.0 out of 5 stars Olympus traveller case, 5 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's much darker blue and brighter orange than on the picture. The size fits my SZ 20 perfectly.
The design of the case is a little awkward if you intend to put the camera in and out frequently, but the hard shell and compact size make it a perfect case to keep in a handbag (the previous case I had was soft, and the camera turned on by itself all the time). You do have to carry all the extra batteries separately.

4.0 out of 5 stars After a year of use..., 28 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For almost a year I felt very happy with these filters: they fit my Brita [Marella] jug, no leaking, long life. After a year, however, I started to notice a bunch of very small shortcomings that the original Brita filters don't have:
1) it takes a while to let the air out before inserting a new filter;
2) the first two-three times the water is really dark and leaves stains in the sink;
3) filtering is really slow, especially after the first few weeks.
I filter water quite often, 5-10 times a day, and I live in a residence with very hard water, so I guess for someone else somewhere else these filters can be perfect. And they're really not bad for the price. So when Amazon doesn't have good discounts on the 12-month Brita pack, these ones will do just fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice one, 6 Sept. 2012

Looks good, doesn't cost much, and is very quick to put together and take apart. And it also lets shoes dry well after rain or snow.

Nicely packed, excellent colours and material too, but after 7-8 months the logo on this blue pair started to peel off.

4.0 out of 5 stars 60x40 vacuum bags, 29 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good for thick winter scarves, hats, socks and gloves OR a couple of sweaters; doesn't make much difference with normal clothes.
UPDATE: Perfect size for a carry-on bag!

4.0 out of 5 stars Kryptonite Evolution Mini 7, 29 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my first bicycle lock and I had to read a lot of reviews before deciding what lock to choose. Small U-locks seem to have the best reputation, and Kryptonite is among the most recommended brands (just make sure you're not buying an old kryptonite with that BIC-pen problem). The lock is pretty small, but just enough, no extra space left between your bike and a bike rack/pole. Light enough to carry in a bag, it can also be attached to the pannier rack. No real need for the complicated u-bracket. Haven't tried the flex cable, it looks sturdy, but I'm thinking of getting a second u-lock to do what the Kryptonite website calls "ultimate security lock-up". By the way, do check the website for proper lock-up instructions and to register your keys, and if you're lucky to live in one of the countries covered by the anti-theft insurance, do register for it too.

UPDATE: Haven't bothered to get another lock for almost a year, but after noticing that someone attempted to break it (unsuccessfully! the lock is now lightly chipped in two places), I'm going to get a chain lock as well, something like this Kryptonite Evolution Series 4 Mini Chain 55cm.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very compact, 24 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The mug holder looks very nice, and is very compact, only 20x25cm. Works perfect for mugs as well as cups: you can fit 8 standard mugs plus two tea cups, if you hang them facing each other.
