4.0 out of 5 stars Review, 8 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good deal as you get a pair of padded cycling shorts too.

This is a 'small' XL, it is tighter than the Altura top I have... Both around the body and around the sleeve (I don't have bulky biceps, but neither do I look like I take part in the Tour!!)

Like the random pattern as I am allergic to wearing 'team' colours.

Cuts really well, set quite low... The box wobbles quite a bit, it's not that fixed.

Even cuts long grass (with a few strokes)

3.0 out of 5 stars Nib too soft, 7 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This looked like a fine nib, which is what I was looking for, and it is, but the nib is too soft and I ordered the firm nibs at the same time, unfortunately the firm nibs don't fit

I really like this body wash that comes in little bottles if you check into a Hilton hotel!!

Does seem quite expensive, but you don't need that much :-)

1.0 out of 5 stars DON'T FIT Bamboo stylus solo, 7 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought the 'firm' nibs as I wanted a finer control for writing on my iPad. I saw that people frequently bought the solo and firm nibs together, unfortunately, this is not the case and they aren't any firmer than the one that came with it Solo.

:-(

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well it worked well for the 1 time I used it, but I don't know if it fell off in the car park after the sportive, or in my garage and I can't find it, but I don't have it anymore, which is a shame.

A bit thin and tin tack. But the main reason for getting a refund was that it wouldn't fit around the bars on my Trek bike

5.0 out of 5 stars As soon as I put it on, I loved it..., 2 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wow... I admit I guessed on the size, but this is just what a base layer should be, firm hold, figure 'holding' rather than compressing... And long too, I'm 6'6" but this covers my behind as well, without being stretched...

I bought this for cycling, but I'm definitely taking it skiing this weekend :-)

No restriction on forward arm movements,so will be good for cycling and in the tuck going down those long runs.

Am about to order another, so I've always got one handy.


Transitions:  Managing Your Own Healthcare: What Every Teen with an LSD Needs to Know
Transitions: Managing Your Own Healthcare: What Every Teen with an LSD Needs to Know
by Dawn A Laney MS
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.88

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book... (NB. is written for US audience), 20 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a Physician working for a Pharmaceutical company involved in LSDs (That get's my conflict of interest out of the way). I would like to say that this book is really great.

Please note, that although it is available on the UK Amazon site, it has been written with the US market in mind... Clearly healthcare in the US is based on an insurance model and that colours the way people have to think about their health, especially if they have a chronic condition and even more so if it is one as rare as a Lysosomal Storage Disease (LSD- NB. nothing to do with mind altering Lysergic Acid diethylamide).

In the UK, LSDs are generally managed by specialised centres (there are 7 in England, 1 in Wales, one in NI and the situation is becoming clearer in Scotland!). What this means is that a patient with an LSD will not have to worry about whether the treatment will be paid for, as it is funded centrally by the NHS.

However, the concept of Transition is clearly an important one for any patient, irrespective of their nationality, diagnosed as a child, who grows to be an adult as the provision of healthcare services for adults and children is considerably different.
This book would also be useful for parents, carers, family and friends of a young person growing up with an LSD so they can understand the challenges faced by the young person.
