4.0 out of 5 stars exactly what you'd expect, 26 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: GoPro Grab Bag of Mounts (Sports)
this is he cheapest way of buying spare go-pro mounts, its always best to buy the official, stuff, and i only broke the old stuff because i mixed poorly metal copies from e-bay.
these mounts will always be too expensive for what they are, but hey, what can you do about it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really pleased, 26 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used these for a snorkeling holiday in Sharm recently and was really impressed, I haven't used many fins before, only cheaper bog standard ones, so i cant say if these are "the best you can get for the money" but these are certainly a vast improvement over the traditional cheap fin. they're very easy to use and the hinge really does make a difference, I found i tended to you kick a little differently, kind of like riding a bike as opposed to straight up and down like normal, but both methods do work.
I found the do exactly as they claimed, less effort for more push, very comfortable, plenty of adjustment, I'm a size 10-11 and i bought the large, and there appears to be plenty of adjustment either way. they're also easier to walk with on land because of the flex and shorter length you can even walk forward if you do it john cleese style. they're lightweight and extra short so perfect for travelling.
The only bad thing i will mention is the hinge connection itself, it looks pretty feeble so its no doubt only a matter of time before it breaks, but as an infrequent light user, i haven't had any problems yet, so we'll see,

3.0 out of 5 stars Apparently rubbish, 26 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my girlfriend but had to send it back because it was "c**p" It looked fine to me but apparently the face was too chunky and heavy and wouldn't stay put. I think she just needed to do it up tight, but hey i'm a man what do i know.
Also worth mentioning that this just cost me over £6 to send back! amazon like to print a returns label and decide what to charge you later it was in an 80 gram package!
I recommend only buying stuff you know you want. you've been warned

2.0 out of 5 stars Mines on e-bay if anyone wants it!, 26 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a rotor cuff injury that after a failed operation a couple of years ago, looks like I'm stuck with now. this means if If my arms above my head or behind me, the slightest knock will pop the shoulder. I've been making do with a cheapo standard neoprene support for ages, but finally decided i'd splash out and buy something a little more comfortable and supporting.
but I am just massively disappointed with this. Don't get me wrong its not all bad, the quality is exceptional, its extremely comfortable and breathable, and it looks great, unfortunately the one small detail that lets it down is the fact that it offers NO SUPPORT WHAT SO EVER! literally nothing, you'd be better off with a tight fitting shirt. For a start the fitment is all wrong, even for a product with this much adjustment, I couldn't get it to fit tightly. I'm a man 6ft tall, and of average athletic build, so to all extents and purposes pretty standard, I bought the small/medium size, and its massive. I can just about get away with it fully adjusted, but by this time the straps are so far round my back i'm risking injury just trying to put it on, clearly these are designed for the morbidly obese or gym obsessed, with arms like tree trunks.
Once its on and tight enough it still offers no support where you actually need it, its nice and snug round the chest and on the bicep and very comfortable to wear, but the actual shoulder is barely covered, its basically just bondage wear. Seriously just look at the picture again, there's nothing underneath the arm pit at all, which essentially just makes this a shoulder pad, if it wasn't for the bicep strap holding it to your arm, this would just be a flap. That "X" strap rubbish is just a joke too, again, just look at it and think, what is it actually doing? it doesn't go all the way around, it's just an additional bit of padding, You can move it around and "tighten" it all you like, but it's not actually ever going to do anything.
I used this once and popped my shoulder almost immediately, All this thing did was make it harder to get it back in place, making me look like something out of 'the exorcist' writhing around on the floor all contorted and making stupid noises whilst I try to remove the strap before i can get my arm back in.

This is a great product if you've got money to burn and wanna look like a pro down the gym, and maybe if you wan to keep just a single shoulder dry in the rain, I so badly wanted this to work, but if you've got an actual injury the fact is this isn't going to help you, which is why mines going on e-bay. Its also worth mentioning the reason i'm not returning it, is because amazon recently charged me £7 to return an 80gram bracelet costing £14. I didn't fancy paying probably £20 to return a shoulder support!

3.0 out of 5 stars only really let down by seller and 1 design floor., 26 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Take a look at postage times, If you're ordering from UKHS you're probably too late for summer 2013! They only dispatched when amazon threatened to cancel the sale. I then had to chase up the patio cleaner attachment.with no reply, until it turned up on the doorstep a further couple of weeks later.
Its not listed as refurbished, but i'm pretty sure the main unit has been used before, not enough to complain about, a couple of minor scratches, water inside and a slightly rusty connection give it away.
As far as the product itself goes its ok, its not the quietest and i'm not totally convinced the pressure is as high as it claims, but it works OK, The sheer amount of accessories are the products main selling point, which for the price you can't beat.
unfortunately you suffer with the poor design quality. It looks fantastic in the pictures and in the nicely edited video, but in real life its got some blindingly obvious design floors.

For a start don't get too excited by the reel on top, I thought this would be great, but it really isn't, its so stiff and the line so tough, that it takes 2 hands to roll it back on properly, so you can forget that nice flip out hand crank. its also so top heavy that its almost impossible to use because as soon as you pick up the lance, the machine's on its side, even with the whole reel unwound.I have to use a bungie strap to attach the thing to the wall to get round this. this also happens when you try and use the "built in accessory holders" that picture above with the lance sitting nice and upright on the side whilst the whole unit stays standing up... witchcraft! this simply doesn't happen, the holder too big and the wrong shape, so the lance sits at an angle and the whole thing falls over. hence why i now have another bungie strap on my garage wall! along with a box for all the other accessories that don't have a home.

The "vario" (normal) lance has adjustable pressure which sounds great until you want anything less than 100%, at which point you'll be completely soaked as the water now goes in all directions! (think outside tap without the hose attachment) the design isn't obvious as to where this feature is, (as its so stiff It scratches the shaft when you turn it) and you cant rely on the instructions to help, as they're so poorly translated into broken English that half of it's not even legible.
The "turbo" lance (spinning ceramic ball) is pretty good, as looks the drain cleaner (haven't used it yet) The spinning brush is just a gimmick though, there's no pressure or torque on the spin, and no adjustment on the amount of water, it's really just the same as a a normal brush on a hose, so you'll be getting soaked again.
patio cleaner looks pretty standard, (again i haven't tried it yet).
General build quality is the standard Chinese type affair, expect cheap plastics with sharp edges, cheap partially stuck wonky stickers, loose nuts and bolts and some self assembly required. This is clearly a product designed on paper, but not something anyone's actually tried to use afterwards, a few simple design tweaks could have made this brilliant, which is a real shame.
So to summarize, If you absolutely must have every accessory known to man, then you wont find cheaper then this, it's not all bad, and its a great price. Just expect to get what you pay for, wait several weeks for postage, and spend half your day faffing around with it.
But if you just want to wash the car without the hassle, go down to any DIY store and get the cheapest karcher you can.
That's what i'll be doing when this thing inevitably breaks later in the year and i cant get spares. (most likely after I launch it across the street in a fit of rage because its fallen over again!)

3.0 out of 5 stars Misleading size and not the same make as pictured, 18 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was pretty disappointed when this arrived, the XXXL tag line as well as the anorexic girl and child sized man in the photos make the bag look much bigger then it really is. I'm just under 6ft so by no means giant, and this bag is too small to sit in with my head supported. It works well just perching on top, but no better then a "standard" sized bag in this respect. It IS a little larger, but the additional size doesn't really make any odds. In hindsight I wish I just saved the extra £20 and bought a pear shaped or regular sized one locally.
I also notice its not even the same make as the description suggests, there's no "Hi-Bagz" logo stitched in like the photos, no branding at all, so I suspect this is a cheaper copy. Having said that though, it is of reasonable quality, the stitching seems good, and although a fairly "shiny" leather effect it's not a bad effort reasonable thickness, although it does notice as inferior when placed next to our real leather sofa, hopefully it'll wear in a little though. I'll see how it lasts, but I certainly wouldn't pay the extra £100+ for a real leather one just yet. The colour representation in the photos is pretty accurate bearing in mind the extra lighting used. this is the standard dark brown most sofas tend to come in which is good.
The would imagine postage costs each way would make complaining a pointless exercise so I'm cutting my loses and sticking with it. bear this in mind when you make your purchase though, especially if you expecting "XXXL GIANT!"
