1.0 out of 5 stars Let down by fixings, 3 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very disappointed. I thought this was super when it arrived, but after using it twice, one of the tapes underneath that secures the bag to the pannier has come away from the seam. Returning for refund.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY, 15 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
DO NOT BUY - I was so pleased these were back in stock, as my previous one (from a different vendor, but same make) lasted over a year, and it is one of the few cycle map cases that will hold an OS map (a crazy design fault for most UK manufacturers, surely). However, within four rides over a one week holiday, this one developed huge splits across both sides of the clear plastic, near to the fold line. Fortunately the weather was dry, or my map would have been ruined, but the map case is useless. The hunt is on again for a good OS-compatible cycle map carrier.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't believe the product description, 3 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Direct quote from product description: "The case is also designed so all phone sockets are still accessible whilst your phone is attached. " I trawled through loads of covers until I found one that supposedly left all sockets accessible, so - despite the price (much more costly than most on offer) - I decided to go for this one, so I could charge the phone with the cover closed. It has now arrived and does NOT have a hole in the cover for the charger inlet. Extremely disappointed. Can't yet comment on durability as it only arrived today ...

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish, 8 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The insoles are extremely thin and don't stay in place. After a couple of very uncomfortable walks with the insoles rucking up under my instep I bought a pair of sorbothane insoles to put in them, which helped (cost as much as the wellies). I have now had them 9 months and worn them around 12 times, and both wellies have split in the same place - the area that flexes over the joint between the big toe and the foot. They'll need to go in the bin - even Duck Tape won't stick to the plastic. My last pair of ankle wellies lasted over fifteen years - I am very unimpressed.

5.0 out of 5 stars highly recommended, 21 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Delighted with these socks. i already have bamboo walking socks, so know how comfortable they are, but these are my first bamboo leisure socks. A good fit foot-wise, though I am a size 6.5 foot and they might be a bit big if your feet are at the size 3 end of the range, and they are truly knee length and properly stay up, rather than sliding down and bunching up above the ankle. They have washed well and retained their shape, size and softness. Highly recommended

1.0 out of 5 stars Feels like the princess and the pea, 8 Nov. 2014
Heats up very quickly, but the blanket is so thin that the wires are incredibly uncomfortable. I persevered with it for a week, with bruises to hip and ribs, then tried putting a further blanket over it before finally giving up and buying a different one. I've had Dreamland before and always been very happy with the quality, so doubly disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars CHECK WHICH MICROPLANE YOU HAVE - INADEQUATE PRODUCT DESCRIPTION, 17 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a fantastic microplane (and slider) and have just bought a further microplane as a gift. The shop didn't have a slider, so I purchased from Amazon. A few reviews said 'doesn't fit' but the vast majority said it did fit all microplanes, so I went ahead. Well, it has now arrived and it does not fit - it is too narrow for the grater. Turns out the Microplane I want to use it with is a 'Home Series' and the slider fits either a Professional or Gourmet series microplane. It should say this on the product description. I'm now deliberating about sending it back, or having to buy yet another microplane - one that will fit the new slider! Aargh ...

4.0 out of 5 stars warm, good to have size options, 20 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
very pleased with these gloves. I have long fingers and take a size 7 to 7 1/2 glove, so most ladies gloves are too tight or short in the fingers or thumb. It was great to find a pair with S/M/L options - the Large is a very good fit for me. I haven't yet washed them, but they appear well made and the stitching looks secure.

1.0 out of 5 stars worked for one week only, 14 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had high hopes for this, with the flexibility of USB and 3 pin connectors, and a higher wattage than many inverters. Bought one for a two week sailing holiday, to charge kindle, mobile phone and blackberry whilst away, with no access to mains power. It worked fine for one week, then packed up completely, causing significant disruption to our trip. Awaiting response from seller.

2.0 out of 5 stars poor repolacement service for faulty item (twin pack, 14 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought the twin pack as they were recommended by a colleague to meet the new fire regulations for emergency lighting in my holiday let. They arrived promptly. One is fine but one is faulty - whilst it charges up OK, the connection between the torch and the base station is inadequate, meaning that the torch does not function as a nightlight, even thought it works as a torch once removed from the base station. My email (via Amazon) to the vendor was met with a prompt apology and offer of replacement - so far, so good. However, three weeks later no replacement has arrived, so I am disappointed - and about to miss my deadline for their installation.
