Chichester Outdoor Steamer chair - with durable Weather-tex cushion and FSC certifed Eucalyptus Wood
Chichester Outdoor Steamer chair - with durable Weather-tex cushion and FSC certifed Eucalyptus Wood
Price: 134.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Value Chair, 7 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Been after a decent outdoor chair for a while and bought because of price, for a proper wooden chair, was excellent. Considering the weatherproof cover was included too I thought it was very good value for money.

Finish on some parts of the wood might be better, but nothing that won't wear smooth over time and certainly not bad enough to cause a splinter - just a little rough on a couple of edges.

Metal screws and components should stand up well over time, I have tried to keep indoors when the weather has been bad but it has been caught in the rain a couple of times and the cover has withstood this without any discolouring or staining etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value, 7 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought ahead of Autumn/Winter just in case demand increased and prices went up, for the price paid on Amazon I have absolutely no complaints over the quality of this jacket. Exactly what I was looking for at much less than high street or even most places online.

I would say it's a medium weight jacket, heavier than a plain suit jacket but not overly heavy. Lining and stitching appear very well finished.

2.0 out of 5 stars Far too concise, 2 July 2013
I took this out on the Kindle Lending Library. The information is clearly presented and to the point, but overall a little too concise.
I read through it in around 30 minutes and I'm not the fastest reader.
In some of the more notorious cases (HH Holmes) even Wikipedia might have more information. Only really useful as a quick summary of the criminals and their crimes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid measuring jug, 11 Oct 2011
The glass is thick (thicker than I remember Pyrex's of old) though I'd have preferred a closed handle for safety myself. The markings are very clear and easy to read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good colander for price, 11 Oct 2011
Nice and shiny, drains well, easy to clean. Can't really see the need to buy a more expensive one for my needs.


Zippo Cross & Crown Emblem Lighter - Street Chrome
Zippo Cross & Crown Emblem Lighter - Street Chrome

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice looking lighter, 16 Aug 2011
First off, I didn't realise the design was just attached to a regular Zippo case - there's a little clearance on the one I got so it does look if you got something caught under it you might be able to pull it off.

The above aside though the lighter looks really nice, a few people have commented on it when they've asked for a light. The distressed kind of effect helps the look because it doesn't look too shiny.

Functionally... well it's a Zippo. There may be a bit more maintenance (especially filling) than with some other brands but for reliability they can't be beat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the wattage!, 16 Aug 2011
This review is from: Vox AC4TV Combo Amp
I originally got this as a practice amp to stand in for a Marshall which was too loud, but even on the 1/4W setting though the little Vox is surprisingly loud.
It's a great amp for practice though as it's small and light.

Played with no effects on there's a really nice clean tone from either my Strat or LP, it does sound a bit thin with a more 'metal' guitar but I rarely play those guitars without some o/d at least.
Plays very well with fx through it too, an FX loop would have been nice but for the price can't complain about not having one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor stitching lets it down, 16 Aug 2011
Pattern looks really nice and decent materials, however the stitching on a couple of the items is poor and the seams have seperated.
