Milestone Camping Brush Tent Dustpan Set - Red
Milestone Camping Brush Tent Dustpan Set - Red
Offered by Crazee Deal
Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well for its size, 18 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A camping dustpan and brush is essential kit to get rid of the sand/grass/stones etc that are walked in. This one is very small and packs flat.
It does what it should and doesn't take up too much space.

4.0 out of 5 stars This tent is luxurious and well designed, 18 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This tent is luxurious. It was easy enough to put up single handed but would definitely need two people in windy conditions. I love the space and height in the living area. No more bending and wet necks as you enter the tent.
At 12kg it is quite heavy and cumbersome. The design of the tent bag is good allowing extra space for hurriedly folding in rainy conditions.
I intend to use this tent as a base camp, but it is easy to put up/take down so could also be used for touring. After being used to smaller tents it feels luxurious and the attention to detail is good. Zipped inner to spread the stress on the fly and if you want to move/remove it to create more living space temporarily you can easily do that. It has inner pockets for essentials. Covered door entry. Ventilation to prevent condensation on the inside of the fly.Huge windows to appreciate the view. I hope the mosquito netting is small enough to be midge proof. It seems way smaller than necessary for mosquitos. It doesn't claim to be but a reviewer on 'youtube' said it kept them at bay. I am trying it in Scotland next month so will answer that question afterwards. Hence only four stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Noise gratefully abated, 13 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vango Monarch Chair (Sports)
These chairs originally made a terrible noise when you sat on them but after a quick application or coconut oil, (probably any lubricant) they are great. This involved unscrewing the back canvas and reattaching after greasing, but well worth the effort as i was all set for returning them because of the noise!

4.0 out of 5 stars The size 10 is perfect for me, 13 July 2015

Although normally a size 12 i bought these in a size 10. The 12 were too long and baggy around the crotch area. The size 10 is perfect for me.

i had to take the em up as i am short 5' 2" but otherwise a comfortable trouser. Cool. Have not yet had them really wet to see how quickly they dry but as they are very lightweight I would hope it would be a short time.


Kampa - Hi-Lo Table Medium
Kampa - Hi-Lo Table Medium
Offered by Motorhome Accessories Ltd

4.0 out of 5 stars Modern version of an old favourite, 13 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kampa - Hi-Lo Table Medium
I haven't used this in situe yet but bought it because you can adjust the height of the legs for uneven ground. It packs flat and I have made a carrying case (anti scratch) for it myself. Pretty big (table top size) flat but it goes in the boot first. I am a little concerned about the plastic catch for the legs underneath . My old one had a steel catch and is still going strong so I hope this lasts as long. Otherwise looks substantial and I am very happy with it.

Excellent game. I bought the original in the Netherlands for my son many years ago and had to leave it and the extension packs on my move back to the uk. Have since replaced most of it. We as a family love this game as it is always different and there are always many ways to play it.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Rated good and not excellent only because it is a little pricey. I have a few small swatch watches and like to mix and match watches and straps. I have adapted 'normal' leather watch straps by cutting out the castelations but not always successfully so try to pick up straps where I can. (The straps always look worn out before the watches themselves). This is a nice red colour and I am very happy with it. Shame it was so expensive, but bought it anyway as it was exactly what I wanted.

4.0 out of 5 stars I love the print, 12 Nov. 2014
Lovely soft large scarf. I love the print. Came with a largish wooden cross necklace with a tag with a message in incorrect English.
Quote "I feel about you makes my heart lone to be free". The cross was terrible but the scarf, which is what I ordered this item for, is super and just what I wanted.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Exactly what I wanted - a small drying rack that sits above the draining board most days, (suitable for two people) but can be moved over to the none draining side when more dishes require draining. The drain hole does not protrude but you can position the whole rack to drain over the sink. All in one piece and easy to clean (with a long handed brush) it is easy to move about with the carrying handles and small enough to fit my very small draining board. Excellent for moderate use for two people and occasional use for more.
