5.0 out of 5 stars Good light, good seller, terrible courier (UkMail)., 12 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great light, fitted perfectly and is lighting my kitchen as we speak. Does the job nicely. But please, please don't use UkMail, they are a terrible courier and made me miss two delivery slots because they couldn't figure out to ring a doorbell (despite me putting a sign out asking them to). As the seller and item aren't at fault in any way I won't mark them down for it but hopefully you will change courier.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helped fix ground loop., 12 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this in conjunction with a Wentronic 67228-GB Ground Breaker Galvanic Separator Coaxial Plug to Coaxial Jack SATmSF IEC Cable 0.1m and a kenable F Type Screw Connector Socket to RF Coax Aerial Male Adapter to fix an issue of ground loop which causes scrolling white lines and an audible hum by the Virgin cable. It fixed the problem completely. The connection isn't loose at all, so will hopefully stay put for as long as I need it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fixed ground loop problem., 12 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this because of a problem with ground loop (aka hum lines) from Virgin cable, which causes scrolling white lines and an audible 'hum' sound. With the relevant cable adapters (a kenable F Type Screw Connector Socket to RF Coax Aerial Male Adapter and a kenable RF Female Socket to F Type Screw Male Plug Adapter Converter) to connect it to the aerial cable and signal box, it fixed the problem completely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, tough, quick access to a mag., 29 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice piece of kit, very sturdy and tough. I suggest wearing it in a bit to soften it up before you use it for it's specified purpose. Easy to use, fits easily and well on molle gear and will hold two mags safely and securely.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice design, needs a bit more weight to it., 29 Aug. 2014
It's very light, the chain is a bit poor but the shield design is well done. Personally I keep it as more of a coin than a chain.

2.0 out of 5 stars Looks good, not as sturdy as I had hoped., 29 Aug. 2014
I liked the design and material of this but I fell asleep wearing it and it fell apart. Not a problem if you take it off before bed, I guess, but still, you expect a bit of hardiness.


Master Class Combination Sharpening Stone
Master Class Combination Sharpening Stone
Price: £13.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great piece of kit, will give your blades a great edge., 29 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great stone, sharpens knives smoothly and efficiently. Great for general purpose knives (I used it on a belt knife, large wood axe and my outdoor knife) where you need a good sharp blade. Great for axes too, it got rid of all the little pock marks and dings really well.


Gerber  Pocket Sharpener
Gerber Pocket Sharpener
Offered by Hobbylife Limited
Price: £6.29

3.0 out of 5 stars Potentially useful, maybe more at home in a survival kit., 29 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Useful if you have a pocket knife or a multi-tool and want to hone the blade or touch up the edge but that is as useful as it gets, but that is what it is meant to do. Personally, I can't imagine being outdoors for so long that my Leatherman blade will blunt enough to require a sharpening. If you attempt to sharpen larger blades then you will be disappointed but you will also be using the wrong tool.


AnySharp Global World's Best Knife Sharpener (Classic)
AnySharp Global World's Best Knife Sharpener (Classic)
Price: £9.90

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for everyday kitchen knives, not good for pro-quality knives., 29 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This does a good job sharpening but it removes a lot of metal to do it (you will notice that when you use it). As a general sharpener, it's great, keep it in your kitchen and it will sharpen your knives quickly, but if you own an expensive set of knives, treat them accordingly.
