This review is from: Snugpak Response Pak Bag (Misc.)
Replaced the bag my mountain first aid kit came in, seems nice, plenty little pockets and pouches. The quality isn't going to blow you away, the fabric and the stitching is adequate but not great so will see how long it lasts. However at this price not much to complain about and I like it, as long as it lasts a couple of years I will be happy.

Seems to work well so far, had it out a couple of times so far(about 3km of swimming). It's nice, kind of like stepping back in time having to take music as it comes, but that was a novelty and I kind of liked having to make a playlist the old fashioned way.

4.0 out of 5 stars nice, little pricey., 10 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice little kit, could do with more instructions, for example a how to for making the survival grenade that friendly swede also makes would be good. Got it because it looked interesting and the bits and pieces with it were easiest to get like this, I do like it but as a gift(what I was thinking of it for) it would be better with instructions, it's also slightly expensive, at £15 I had to think about it, at £10 it would have been a no brainer and a nice secret santa gift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best I have had in ages, 15 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These headphones are by far the best I have had in years, a massive step above the typical sennheisers I was used to. The construction is solid and there is no damage after long use, and because of the toggle they don't tangle. The audio is the best I have heard in ages and they have a nice even balance and don't overdo the bass like most these days.

If you are looking for something that will replace a broken pair of cx300 or 400s then these are what you want to buy, they sound better and last longer.

For gaming on windows where you want a controller this should be the first and last stop. The third party ones and PS3 controllers are fine but rarely just work out of the box, this does and it has solid build quality and feels good in the hand.

Classic toolbox, really handy and the perfect size for general tools for basic home or hobby projects. Big enough to hold what you need and small enough to carry comfortably.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good as long as you understand the limitations., 14 Jan 2013

These are nice solid headphones, and are actually the second pair I have owned having had a pair years ago. They are good, and comfortable to wear, biggest downside is the wireless transmission which is old school analogue. The FM transmission means they are prone to occasional interference and the angle of your head to the transmitter can be an issue, Mostly the annoying thing is if the audio stops it lets out a god awful squelching noise and if it just went silent on signal loss or dropped the volume I would use them every day.

Neither particularly good nor bad, it is exactly what it looks like nothing more. Did the job of protecting my phone. Replaced it with the poetic slim case so I doubt I will use it very often. If you want to shop around for a better case and need something in the interim before you get it then this is a good choice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, easily understood and well written., 14 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this for my MSc, pretty solid book and easier to understand in most cases than its competitor Craigs. Between the two there isn't a huge difference and if you can get only one this is the one to get as it is the more readable of the two. Combined with the online resources on the website which are free it is very useful and a nice book to have handy.

It isn't totally comprehensive and you will still want more focused texts for some things its a good starting point.
