Escape Fitness GripR Soft Weighted Bag - Green, 4 Kg
Escape Fitness GripR Soft Weighted Bag - Green, 4 Kg
Price: £32.12

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Alternative Dumbbell, 16 Dec 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very simple product. It is simply a "bag" that has been filled with a gravel like substance to make a 4Kg weight, which can be squeezed, grabbed and handled in ways other dumbbell weights could not be used. The bag is made from very high quality materials and I would think it would be difficult to cause a split in the bag.

Overall this is a good/unique alternative to a dumbbell and I am happy to recommend the poduct.


Chocolate Picture Maker Bar (Pack of 2)

I was given this product by the manufacturer to try, test and review.

This is a simple but very effective product. I was given the 2 bar pack to test. The idea is that you can create bespoke chocolate bar pictures, by melting the chocolate and using the stencils (animals, planets, words etc) to create your own picture from milk, dark and white chocolate....all of these are included in the pack. All you have to do is melt the chocolate, using a double bowl and warm water (very safe), use the included tray and a stencil. Draw around the stencil using the dark, white and milk chocolate, designing the picture and then fill in the background with the milk chocolate.

This is a simple to use product, which is also fun to have. The quality of the chocolate is very high and the entire package is well made and I am therefore more than happy to Highly Recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good if you have the automatic litter tray, 15 Dec 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These trays fit into the Automatic Litter Tray sold by PetSafe. They allow for the auto,automatic disposal of cat litter. The tray itself lasts for about 4 weeks if you have one cat or 14 days if you have two. They are good but expensive. So if you if an automatic litter tray this is a must have refill.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but Poor Instructions, 12 Dec 2014
I was given this item by the manufacturer to test, review and keep in exchange for an honest review.

The construction and build quality of this camera is very good. At the price range you cannot expect the earth, but this item is very good. Where the low price and functionality show is in the colour control. I have set up the camera at the front door of my house, so as to see who is there, before opening the door. For this purpose this camera is very good. It feeds wirelessly through to a screen that was sent separately by the manufacturer. I am very happy with the quality of what is sent through to the screen and have had no issues so far with low frame rate via the WiFi connection. I had to get a friend to set it up, as the instructions are very poor.

Overall this is a good camera for the price, if you can set it up. Set up was easy, connecting it to the screen was OK and it has performed as expected. This is not a Rolls Royce camera, but it costs a mini price. You cannot expect it to do everything a £100+ camera will do and it doesn't...but if you want this functionality spend more. I am happy to recommend this item.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I will be very brief, the item I received was of very poor quality. The stitching was coming away from the seams, the zip was faulty and overall the feel of the material was poor. It went back to Amazon, the day after I received it. Happy to get a refund and prchase something of better quality.

This is a great quality rucksack that gives you a large amount of space and is suitable for a 17 inch laptop. The zips, stitching, seams and material are all made to last, as you would expect from Swissgear. The front compartment is for pens and small items, as it has pen holders and a small pocket with velcro on. The back compartment is for the laptop and has a mesh zippered pocket at the top. The bag has a reinforced handle at the top and padded straps at the back. There are two other compartments where you can store larger items. Overall this is a large, well made backpack.

I am therefore happy to highly recommend the bag.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
When I first saw this on the Vine list I thought it was one of those snuggle type of blankets, that you can wrap yourself in, with the added benefit of it being heated. I then read it again and reaslised that it was more designed to lay on an item of furniture. When it arrived it was actually more of a soft heated blanket, similar to ones you would use fr the bed, but just a little softer. It has 4 heat settings and it does work, but to be honest I don't see any real need for it. Its not soft enough for a wrap and too soft to heat a bed. Its not a wrap and not a heated blanket for a bed, its a heated sofa heater......just not quite sure why you would want one?

Recommended if this is the type of product you want.

This item was sent by the manufacturer to test, review and keep in exchange for an honest review.

I have been sent many portable/wireless doorbells over the years which have been good to poor. This one is different in that it comes with 2 ringers, so that you can hear the bell in different areas of the house. The product itself appears to be made from good quality plastic. It is rare that I have encountered any issues with any Avantek supplied item and their quality does appear to be higher than many other suppliers. The ring chimes are numerous, 52 in total and they suit all different moods. The main ringer is plugged into the mains, whilst the second one is battery operated. The outdoor button can be stuck to the door. I found the sticky pad was not strong enough to stick it, so I used some super glue, which did the trick. The volume of the chime can be adjusted and I found it very loud, given its size.

Overall this product is well made and appears to be high quality. I am therefore happy to Highly Recommend it.

I have read other reviews for this product and I have to say, we seem to have one that works. It is quite a neat looking watch/monitor. The strap does look a bit flimsy and I don't think I would like to put it through to much, otherwise it looks as if it may tear...but only time will tell. The electronic part works well, its a watch, pedometer, sleep monitor, calorie monitor, vibrating alarm and it can also act as a smartphone ID display. It is very easy to set and very comfortable to wear. My only warning about this product, is you cannot lie to yourself anymore about how much you do in a day, as this will track everything you do. It is very easy to sit back in winter and do very little activity and then complain about feeling unwell and the fact you are putting on weight. This little beauty tracks exactly what you are doing/not doing....so the lies you tell yourself have to stop.

Overall this is a nice device, which I am happy to recommend.
