1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality, cheapo crap you're just going to throw away. Don't bother., 14 Sep 2013
This thing arrived in packaging which was already opened and had been stapled back together. Not a good start. The light itself is poor, gives out next to no light, and takes up a lot of space on the handlebar. The rear light can't be switched off, only un-plugged, so you risk running the battery down if you forget. Disappointing. Build quality is poor not built to last. Bin fodder. Don't bother.
Thermos Stainless King Flask with Handle 1.2L Blue by BHL
This does what it says on the tin, keeps things hot (or cold) for ages, and is quality built to last.

The only shame is, being that there's 1.2 litres, there's only one cup. Some flasks have two - a smaller one which fits into the main one which forms the lid. It would be nice to have a 2nd cup - if your drink is for two you have to remember to bring a 2nd cup or share the main cup. Otherwise, top buy, you won't be disappointed it's worth the extra cash compared with other flasks. It's stainless steel not glass inside so it will last.

I was given to expect something extraordinary with this book, but I found it pretty mediocre. There is much better war literature out there. There is some nice writing in places but the story doesn't really go anywhere, and I understand that that could be kind of the point, as in reflecting the pointlessness of war and so on, but in the end you feel a bit sort of let down after reading it, like "why did I bother!". The quality of his writing suggests he could do better, and perhaps an author to keep an eye on, but I'd pass over this one - doesn't live up to the hype.
