Hi-Tec Men's Eurotrek Waterproof Hiking Boot
Hi-Tec Men's Eurotrek Waterproof Hiking Boot
Price: £29.03 - £126.30

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent soft leather boots, 25 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these boots in black and brown via Amazon about 5 years ago and wear them every winter. They are still good, but now looking scruffy, so I have bought the brown ones in Amazon sales recently. I was pleased to find Amazon still selling them as they fit perfectly, are fairly lightweight and a very reasonable price!

2.0 out of 5 stars Good quality leads, but poor packing by manufacturer, 25 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quality of the pastel is excellent; lays down on paper really well. However, I feel there are far too many orange/yellow shades which take up most of one side. There are about 14 blue/green shades on the other side, plus one black and one white. I was disappointed to find that the pencils only have numbers on them as opposed to having the name of the shade on the pencil. If you want a particular named shade, you have to estimate which pencil shade fits.

Also, the quality of packing by the manufacturer is very shabby. The pencils are laid in plastic, so the ends are against the metal of the tin and the pencil barrels rubbing against the lid. So, 19 of the ones I received had broken tips/broken off tips and scratches on the pencil barrel/marks on the lid where the pencils had rubbed against.

The manufacturer ought to pack them in foam and also encase the plastic tray of pencils in cellophane to stop them moving about and getting broken. I have no way of knowing if the leads are broken inside the pencils.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish ankle boots, 22 Oct 2014
These are lovely ankle boots, very stylish, comfortable and warm lined. There were none left in my size (40 -41) so I got the next size up and they are a little large, but will be fine with thick tights.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best pastels I have used so far, almost dust free., 15 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having taken up pastel drawing in the past few months, I have tried quite a few brands and found these to be the best for me. They are almost dust free, strong in colour and adhere to the paper well and blend well. They have paper round them which reduces the pastel from getting on my hands (one well known brand I have has lovely colours, but terrible dust). Good range of grey shades.

Strong and very absorbent kitchen towel. However, they retail at around £3.49 in supermarkets, twice the price here!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pastel coloured paper, 10 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The paper is quite thick with slightly raised surface, good quality. I thought it was a pad of white and received a pad of various pastel colours. I shall use it up though and it is nice paper. My pad arrived with one corner badly bent, owing to the seller not packing adequately.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty colours but not really metallic, 10 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These pencils are really lovely colours for flowers etc., and good pigment. But the colours are not really metallic, there is hardly any sheen to them (and on dark paper), maybe just a little. I am pleased to have them though as I really like the pretty colours and for this reason would have liked a bigger set than 12.
