Nalgene Wide Mouth Bottle - Clear, 1 Litre
Nalgene Wide Mouth Bottle - Clear, 1 Litre
Offered by Leisure Lakes Bikes
Price: £12.47

3.0 out of 5 stars OK bottle, but why do you have to buy accessories separately?, 9 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This bottle is OK, but I am disappointed that the Easy Sipper is sold separately (see my review), and how poorly the two integrate.

If you look around you can find near-identical bottles by other manufacturers that come with better sippers, all for less than this bottle by itself.

2.0 out of 5 stars Clumsy design, 9 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This lid works but, to be honest, I am incredibly disappointed with the design of this in conjunction with the Nalgene Wide Mouhth Bottle. I tend to put fruit or vegetables in my water to give it a bit of flavor, but the wide hole here still either lets some through, or allows the bits to plug it up. Additionally, the lit 'rests' lightly in the neck of the bottle. Nudge it too much and it will fall in.

My wife has a similar product made by Karrimor, and that one has a plastic mesh in the opening to prevent things from coming through,the bottle is designed with a small lip inside the neck to fit the sipper, AND the sipper came with it in the first place, not as a separate piece, all for less than I paid for the Nalgene bottle itself, let alone this Easy Sipper.

If you already own the Nalgene bottle, this is your best bet. But, if not, look around, as you can find bottles that come with a better sipper included.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice, but too many problems, 9 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It seems nice at first, but this is actually a bit poorly-designed. Unlike plastic kettles, the stainless steel becomes terribly hot when it boils, enough so to burn the skin on contact. The power cord is very short (about 0.5m) which means it needs to go right by the power socket, or else use an extension. Lastly, the lid is not hinged by instead pops off. This often leads to condensed water on the underside dripping all over the place (and there is A LOT of condensed water that stays on there).

Plus side? It heats quickly. The filter is removable for cleaning.

Overall, the cheap plastic one we replaced (which was half the price) was easier to use and didn't seem so dangerous with the chances for burning skin and all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for one year, 24 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lasts a good year or so, but after that really loses its shape and 'memory foam' ability. All considered, a good value for the money.

Velcro strap is next to useless, though.

1.0 out of 5 stars Barely stays on any surface., 24 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Suction cups fail to stick to any surface for more than a few minutes. Tried all home remedies I found online. Likely a bunk product, but I wasn't confident enough to give them another try.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read, and good value for the money (at the time I purchased it)!, 24 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I haven't read the source novel which this (and 'Edge of Tomorrow/Live. Die. Repeat') is based on, but I find it to be an excellent manga. The story is fun, exciting, and engrossing. Much better than the awful tie-in comic for the film, and the film itself.

Rixen & Kaul Unidisc Chainguard - Black
Price: £12.95

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, but sticks out kind of far., 24 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fitting was easy. However I have a 48t chain ring and this is about the same size. Adding in the adapter for mounting and it sits a good 1-1.25cm away from the chain ring, which is actually quite far. It helps to push my trouser away from the chain, but isn't 100% at this, so I still occasionally get stains on the cuff of my trousers. Would do much better if there was a slightly shorter adapter in the kit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says, 24 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The item I received clearly has different dimensions and color than the one pictured. However, it does the job, and holds both of my hearing aids (behind the ear type) just fine. Lost one star because of the aforementioned difference from photo.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun, fast album., 22 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lower The Bar (Audio CD)
Excellent pop-punk in the vein of Teenage Bottlerocket and the like. Mayhap a bit more bitter though, this Joliet-based band seems to excel in criticizing the Chicago scene while still acknowledging that they are, for good or ill, part of it.

Fast guitars, a driving beat, and clever lyrics make this a top album for me.

I can't stop listening to Directive 5 (Robocop's Always Down). It is awesome.
