1.0 out of 5 stars it's kind of like laying in the center of a hotdog shaped balloon, 24 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a few reviewers have pointed out, these pillows are very thin and your head will sink straight to the bottom. In fact, I'm not sure why they're so popular. If you lay down on your back, your head will be practically touching the mattress through the pillow, which kind of defeats the object of a pillow.

If you use both pillows at the same time, it's kind of like laying in the center of a hotdog shaped balloon, the air would rush to the left and right side and push the balloon up against your ears. The only way to use this pillow is to lay on your side and use a firmer pillow underneath for support, then perhaps position your arm / hand under the pillow for additional support and to keep the pillow balanced.

I no longer bother with these pillows, I would personally recommend saving your money and look around in person / try before you buy. This will be an expensive waste of time if you don't like thin pillows that offer virtually no support and are awkward to sleep on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for anybody that does alot of exercise, 24 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great for anybody that does alot of exercise, or has large feet and can't seem to stop putting holes in the end of their socks. They're a bit more robust that regular socks which is why I bought them. Would give them 4 stars from a value for money perspective, they're great and would order more if / when the price comes down a little.

3.0 out of 5 stars similar or better quality towels from your local shops as I have ..., 24 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fit for purpose, but they're quite small and very thin. You can probably get larger, similar or better quality towels from your local shops as I have done in the past. Ok quality overall, but the picture for this product is very misleading!

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have ordered a number of times, is good stuff. I use this to make protein bars and it's ideal for that purpose. If you want nut butter to spread on toast, there is alot of oil floating at the top and it's nothing like the stuff you'll buy from supermarkets.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for a laugh, can be uncomfortable, 24 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great for a good laugh... so for that it gets 5 stars. However, the hat is quite small and solid (it has no give). So if you have a slightly above average head, it won't fit well at all.

The back of the beard is pretty uncomfortable, and has rough bits that stick into your face. I just used some sellotape to help with that. Also, be prepared to constantly spit stray hairs from your mouth, unless you trim the hairs around the mouth.

1.0 out of 5 stars Damaged Delivery - Buyer Beware, 16 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My delivery arrived promptly, however, the plastic peanut butter container must have been knocked hard during transit. Looking at other reviews, this seems to be a somewhat common experience. The packaging around the tubs is insufficient (it's a thin plastic bag, nothing else). It should be bubble wrapped to prevent the tub being knocked and exploding during transit.

This is just a warning for anybody thinking about ordering this specific item, especially with other items together, since the peanut butter itself could potentially leak / damage other items if they're sent in the same package.

3.0 out of 5 stars Can't Clean?, 30 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The gloves are decent until you need to wash them. They fit perfectly at first; however, after cleaning them in water some of the threading started to give.
Also, part of the glove around the wrist area started to shrink a little, making them fairly uncomfortable to wear. I've recorded recorded a video of these gloves

3.0 out of 5 stars Pros and Cons, 12 Nov. 2012
I've owned and used my Withings Wifi Body Scales for almost 2 years now, so i guess that's given me enough time to accurately review this product. Having just realised the scary amount of time that's passed since i bought these scales, I can recall only one occasion in which I've needed to replace the batteries... which isn't too bad!

These scales are robust, easy to setup, easy to use and convenient. I've used them consistently for almost 2 years and i've never had any significant technical issues. They seem to be built to last and are quite pleasing to look at - at least they were, until they had my big sweaty feet on them every week.

I've found these scales to be fairly temperamental when it comes to fat mass and lean body mass readings. If you're looking for a tool to measure your body composition, the navy method using a decent tape measure will do. Alternatively, skin fold calipers can also be a fairly reliable tool for self-testing.

I personally love the graphs and online website / phone app that shows the trend of my weekly results etc. I find it motivating and a great source of accountability, as i also set my scales to automatically update my twitter page. You can check out how this works by googling - Withings Wifi Body Scales way of the dave. You can see how it automatically sends my scale results to my website within seconds of me standing on it - quite cool really!

Pros

Has some very cool product features, such as the ability to link with various smart phone apps and website applications.
Can track up to 8 users, so can be used by all of the family.
Robust.
Automatically transmits measurements to your online Withings account, shows you graphs of your progress.
Energy efficient, have only needed to change batteries once in almost 2 years of consistent use.
Pretty to look at.
convenient, easy to setup and user friendly.
Gives accurate body weight results.

Cons

Expensive!
Fairly ineffective / temperamental for measuring body composition (fat mass, lean mass etc).

4.0 out of 5 stars Pros and Cons, 11 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First of all, I've used this tape measure for over a year - consistently - and it still works fine. Having said that, the tape measure has a very fragile, would break if I accidentally dropped it feel to it. Fortunately, however, I've yet to drop it to find out if my instincts are correct.

I can't post links here, however, if you want to see a video of the tape measure up close. Google IDASS Body Tape Measure Review by Dave (site wayofthedave).

Pros

So far has lasted over one year with consistent use.
Cheaper than the alternative brand.
Great for home self testing.

Cons

Doesn't feel very robust.
Cylindrical plastic hook does not lock securely.
More expensive than a regular tape measure.
