5.0 out of 5 stars Colour of item in photo incorrect., 30 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a quality well made item from Kombat.co.uk, but a couple of things should be noted.

This is a 'Mini' Molle rucksack, which although it quite cleary states the 10L size in the description the word 'Mini' in the headline would be more noticable and useful.

Second again althougth it clearly states 'GREEN' and orange in the headline the photo shows a brownish/orange main colour but the pack that arrives is 'GREEN' and orange.

The label inside states "Mini Molle Recon shoulder Bag.Olive and Red"

5.0 out of 5 stars Forks for the 20th.......I mean 21st Century!, 17 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this product for one reason and one reason alone POT NOODLES. Impossible to eat with a spoon and if eaten with a fork you lose all that saucy 'goodness' between the tines.
So a bizarre hybrid of both spoon and fork was in order I searched night and day and travelled many miles across the entire internet but found it bereft of anything that could manage the job, the best compromise I could find was the Spork.
Fine if I wanted to eat soup with one end and sprouts with the other, but ask yourself this question "When has that ever happened, ever?"
The other option...the Forkoon but I'm not eating with anything with such a stupid name!

I thought that all was lost and that I was doomed to a life of slightly dry slightly cardboard-y texture noodles, but now thanks to the 'Buffet Boffins' at the Grunwerg labs I can enjoy slightly soggy noodles, with slightly cardboard-y texture.

Developed in secret (I imagine) to handle those twin pillars of any decent buffet, warm potato salad and slightly too rich chocolate cake, I alone have unlocked a 'third-way' with the aforementioned snack-pot noodle pot-snack. Finished in a fetching stainless steel effect stainless steel you get four of these beauties, One to eat with, One to prick yourself with to make sure you're not dreaming, and another two.
If that wasn't enough these Forks(Plus) are dishwasher safe. A fact I am unable to confirm as I am currently prohibited from operating electrical appliances unsupervised.
I would recommend these forks to anyone whether they needed them or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the job, 2 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite why the offical Kindle cases are 1/2 or 1/3 of the price of the device itself is a mystery. But why bother when you can have this little rubbery sock. Reversible, cheap and light just the job to carry the Kindle around day to day. Although I haven't crash tested it yet it'll take the minor knocks from being shoved in a rucksack or handbag.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little strap for the price., 2 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The one and only downside of this strap is the adjustment straps on the side make it a little 'busy' But it's very comfortable, cheap and better that the 'bit of rope' that Sony supplied with my camera. Very nice.

3.0 out of 5 stars Are you local?, 2 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a lover of Doctor Who and a life long resident of Worcester I was looking forward to this, the first DW book I'd ever read, and to start with things looked good. The tenth Doctor is captured here perfectly, his mannerisms, his cheeky asides that go right over everybody's head, his cock sure attitude it's him alright. And his two 1-day only companions are well fleshed out, the battle fatigued local Captain Darke and the hidden agenda off-worlder Emily. After that it's a bit dissappointing there is a surfeit of villians, first the alien businessman/arms dealer Henk, the Krillitane Toeclaw, the Esteemed Father(another krillitane) and the Krillitane Storm itself. There is no central threat, which calls for a lot of running around and capture/re-capture cycles (popular in the seventies). The Doctor even laments that the fact he keeps getting tied up!
And once I got over the thrill of seeing local place names in the Who-niverse the setting became somewhat superflous, it could of been any medieval cathedral city or rather any pre-gunpowder cathedral city since the medieval aspect was thinly sketched. Nor was there a cleary defined geography, I live here and couldn't figure where some things were happening. One short paragraph describing the lay of the land, the smells, the bustle the people, giving a real sense of place and time. Important things in a time travel story. Instead it read like a 'Build you own adventure story' "The Doctor arrived in [Worcester] and met [Emily] who helped him fight the Krillitane" The chance to create effective and exciting drama in unique colourful and expansive locations is hampered on TV by the cost, here it's been wasted.
