5.0 out of 5 stars Superb waterbottle - I can live with the colour., 5 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought one of the earlier Platypus waterbottles - a plain clear plastic one and it has been brilliant. In use at least twice a week for almost 10 years, and only now beginning to leak a little from the weld around the filler spout, and looking as though it may fail along a flex line when it naturally tends to crease. Weighs virtually nothing, easy to clean. I bought a replacement, now there is a range of colours and designs. I chose the red one only because it was the cheapest option. Construction and quality seem the same as my original, and despite the picture looking rather pink, the colour is more red than pink and I'm unlikely to walk off and leave it behind. Superb for a long distance walker.

5.0 out of 5 stars G4 halogen bulbs - standing up well to use., 5 May 2014

The price was excellent - same as two in a local `discount' store. I deferred comment to see if they lasted. The first has been in my desk lamp for over 6 months and going well. 9 more in reserve - Bargain!

3.0 out of 5 stars Masquerade mask - a bit flimsy, 5 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for a party and it looked rather better on the screen than reality - Rather brittle plastic and flimsy elastic. It's OK, but in retrospect I'd have go for the very cheap plan white ones and decorated it myself.

3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't float - lost on first trip out!, 5 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kong Flyer, Large (Misc.)
Frisbees are my Labrador's favourite toy, and being a big dog we get through quite a few as he manages to pull they apart. Bought this believing it would be indestructible. He has a Kong toy and that has stood the test of time, so optimistic about this and it certainly looked the part. Unfortunately we went by a river and he very purposefully dropped it in, whereupon it sank like a stone into the fast current! Gone back to cheap ones now.


Roughneck 64252 Mattock Head 5lb F/glass Handle
Roughneck 64252 Mattock Head 5lb F/glass Handle
Price: £22.81

5.0 out of 5 stars Roughneck fibreglass handled mattock, 5 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought my own after using one of these while working as a National Trust volunteer. Handle feels very strong in use, and the head works well to strip turf or stony soil, while the axe head is super for dealing with tree roots. If hands get very muddy, then use a rag to keep the chequering grip clear to avoid slipping. Very good bit of kit and cheaper than wooden handled versions.

These are tricky to find in the shops, so the opportunity to buy several at the price of les than two in the high street was welcome. I have not ben disappointed. Arrived promptly and bulb number one has been in regular use for about 6 months

Men's Prestige Boilersuit, Overall, Coverall. (XL, Green)
Offered by Army And Workwear
Price: £14.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Green coveralls, 9 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Only used for occasional DIY and gardening, so not thoroughly tested thus far, but first impressions are positive. I'm 5 foot 7 and about 40 inch chest, and can comfortably wear this coverall over a sweater or thin jacket. If you were very tall you might have a problem, as the legs are not very long. Sufficient pockets and closures all work well. Other reviewers have commented that the front fastening poppers come undone readily, but thus far no issue for me. Fabric seems robust and likely to stand up to snags and spills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coax cable with 90 degree angled plugs, 9 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The 90 degree plugs were essential for the task here- allows a PVR device to fit on a narrow shelf. Works fine. It is exactly 2.5M from outer edge of each connector, not their bases - so for me just long enough!

SanDisk 4GB SDHC Secure Digital Card
Offered by Flashmemo-Uk
Price: £5.80

5.0 out of 5 stars 4GB SDHC card, 9 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used to speed up an Atom processor netbook. Plugged into the SD slot and Windows 7 recognises it as a new drive and offers the option of using to improve the performance of the device - works well.
The card was very well priced - definitely recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars PIR sensor - for indoor use only, 9 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Simple to wire up, although the access hole for the cables is very tight (I had to trim away plastic to allow two cables to enter the body of the device). Works fine, but is definitely not for external use, or where condensation might be an issue
