4.0 out of 5 stars Works as described - very happy., 3 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a bit of a fiddle to open - at least the first time, but it gets easier. The front lens unscrews which makes releasing any vacuum simple. Also handy for cleaning. It is nice hard clear plastic so does not degrade the photos.

The bag itself is pretty tough, gives you confidence that it'll last a good while. But it's flexible enough that most of the camera's controls are easily accessed. The one exception is the zoom control if you have one of the type that is a small lever on a ring around the button that takes the shot. Sliding this lever is pretty hard through the tough plastic. Definitely a two handed operation and no fine control.

However, for the price, this is a no-brainer if you want to use your land camera in wet or sandy places. I love mine.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cycle Star mirror poor mounting design, 3 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The mirror itself is quite small but convex enough to show the whole road behind you though small (5.5 cm). Good eyesight an advantage...

But the real flaw in the design is that there is only one bolt to clamp two ball joints into the mounting bush. The ball that secures the bush to the handlebar fixing is just slightly larger than the ball at the base of the stalk. This means that when the bolt is tightened as far as you are able, the stalk still has too much movement and will not stay where you put it. It's OK - just right even - when the mirror is brand new but over a week of riding (and consequent readjustments), the paint gets stripped from the ball which makes it just that little bit smaller. Now there is no way to tighten it up enough to stop it falling down as soon you get on the road.

If I could fit a Mirrycle onto my handlebars I would as it is just the right size and curvature, best I have ever seen. But my handlebars are swept back (old sit up style) and the end mounting would not work (I've tried). The one that does work is the one on Amazon called "Bike Screw-on Side Back Mirror handlebar Mount (Convex)". It's not ideal as there is a little vibration in the otherwise stiff stalk and the mirror is a bit too convex - distorts and shrinks so that far away cars are difficult to see, but at least it's a useable mirror.
