4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but chunky, 24 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good product. Bought to aid recovery from a sprained ankle after reading reviews for this and similar products. Provides really good support for you ankle, whilst still being flexible enough to allow for a good range of movement. Very easy to put on, and comfortable to wear around the house. As other reviewers have noted, I too found it very hard to fit my supported ankle inside shoes, and when I did I found I developed mild blistering on my heel from the edge of the material rubbing. In the end, I used this when I could around the house and in bed, and then used tape while out and about.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good powerful bike lights, 29 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was very happy with these bike lights, being very bright and clearly visible to other traffic. I have had no issues with the mountings. The only reason I have knocked a star off of my review is that after going over a relatively small bump in the road, the 2 halves of the rear light broke apart, leaving the black part still attached to the mounting, and the light itself on the road. The battery was lost, and the 2 plastic halves no longer stay together without gaffer tape.

I would still recommend these lights, but be careful going over speed bumps/pot holes/kerbs!

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin, 12 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having been let down by online (dedicated bike) shops, I was very happy to find some cheap(ish) tubes with a long enough valve to fit my moderately deep rims.

Good product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, 12 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'd heard great things about this book over the years, but somehow had never got around to picking it up. Honestly, in the end I only bought a copy after a recommendation from a girl I wanted to get to know better. It didn't go to plan with the girl, but I in no way regret reading this. From cover to cover I was enthralled. Haddon chose an incredibly difficult perspective to write from, but absolutely nailed it. I have long been a big fan of Douglas Adams, most notably for the digressive style of plot evolution, and this is something Haddon does to perfection in this book. Despite the constant digressions and distractions, its easy to form a bond with the characters, and the pace never feels too slow.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for slap, probably more too!, 31 Jan. 2014

Great strings. I am far from being an expert when it comes to the bass, but compared to my last set of strings, these give a much cleaner sound, and brighter 'pop'. Slap bass sounds awesome.

Great price for a product which is as described and does the job. The gold colour is vivid and adds a little extra wow-factor to my home-built guitar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid Pair of Gloves, 9 Dec. 2013
These are the second pair of gloves I have owned from RDX and I am very happy with them. The other gloves were from a different, cheaper line but I now wish I had gone straight for these. The padding is vastly superior, offering much better protection to my knuckles. The fully open palm allows breathe-ability, and the wrist straps are quick and easy to use while still maintaining good support. The outer fabric on the previous gloves started wearing after just a few sessions, but the leather on these holds up much better.

All in all I am happy with these gloves and would recommend them.

(one note - I have fairly small hands, and the mediums are a good, snug fit for me, so be careful with the size when ordering!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Solid Album, 15 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In Rolling Waves (Audio CD)
It's the first album by the Naked and Famous that I've tried, and I enjoyed listening to it. I do however feel that they front-loaded it slightly, with all of the biggest and best sounding tracks packed into the first half of the album. A Stillness, Hearts Like Ours and Rolling Waves are the stand-out tracks for me.
