Really good earphones, nice tone but I find the bass a bit on the heavy side, hence I usually have to use the 'Bass reducer' EQ. Treble is not overpowering but on the milder side, so no long term listening fatigue. Well made and comfortable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Kit, 20 Aug 2014
Absolutely essential accessory for protecting your iPhone while travelling in your bag, pocket, car glovebox etc. etc., also provides some buffering against drops, but I wouldn't like to try it from a height of much more than 2 or 3 feet or on a hard surface. (NB: it HAS been dropped on grass and carpeted wood floor and the case was obviously a great help.) Couple of advisories: #1. DO NOT turn it upside down with the flap open or 'phone will likely slide out, so watch out for that. #2. the cover tends to obscure the light sensor thingy that varies the auto screen brightness, but this is a minor niggle.

Very supple and comfortable gloves, no effort required just to bend the fingers as often happens with brand new gloves!

Not actually tried using it yet, but one of those things where if you need one, you need one.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought to replace a previous charger that had overheated in the hot sunlight shining through closed car window, and had subsequently failed. Consequently I now cover it with a cloth if left in the car, being as how the 'lighter socket' (in my car, called 12V accessory socket) is actually located on the rear part of the centre console beside the handbrake. No problem working with iPhone, note will need about 2 hours for a complete charge from low, i.e. 25 - 35%.

As mentioned in other reviews, as soon as you receive these, get a big screwdriver and tighten up the screws for the plastic toe guards! Having read said reviews, was the first thing I checked and yes mine needed at least half a turn if not more. Aside from that, have not actually tried the boots 'in anger' yet but they do look quite promising, simple one-sided fastening with one internal zip and velcro flaps on top, cleverly the pull tab for the zip runner also has velcro on it to prevent it sliding down and coming undone (supposing it felt like it). Do seem well made and sturdy, but not as stiff as others I've tried. Will become more giving with use of course.

Got this to replace my very tired 25 yrs old tank bag, which used a detachable base, secured with 3 straps.

This uses one strap to go around the steering head, and four magnets in side skirts, two magnets on each side of the tank. Obviously this implies that you need a steel tank to use these.

So far I have only used it on my 1970's 850 Moto Guzzi, which does have a steel tank. I was very sceptical to be honest about the magnets, but they work no problem at all, even with quite a bit of weight in the bag, it doesn't move. (Unlike my old bag!) In addition, the rear of the magnet side flaps are under my knees as I grip the tank, so is an extra security that I hadn't expected, and is very neat.

The front strap is too short for the Guzzi, as access around the front of the actual steering head is impossible due to being stuffed with wiring and cables etc., so instead I extend it by adding a luggage strap so that it can reach around under the nose of the tank, and in front of the frame front down tubes. This also helps hold it down, rather than just stop it sliding backwards.

2 side and 1 front zip pockets which are very useful for all sorts of small odds and ends, a shoulder carry strap, and rain cover. A small hole at the bottom rear of each side, actually to hold down the rear by taking the hooks of a couple of short bungees (provided), but which I don't use, is also, just by the way, very handy for passing a power lead through for charging a smart phone whilst on the move.

Thought it was high time I treated myself to a proper brolly, instead of making do with just rain hoods of jackets. Well made and sturdy, does the job. Also makes an excellent walking stick. Handle is real wood but can be easily scratched or dented. Just saying, it doesn't of course affect the functionality of the brolly.

Bought this so I can stop borrowing someone else's whenever I need an overnight bag! Since then it's been used for much longer breaks and holidays, as it is large enough, for me at any rate.
