4.0 out of 5 stars Looks smart., 30 July 2014
I'll buy another but a size bigger as they are definitely sized to be a close fit and I would like them to be a little looser, especially as the fabric is quite fine. Quality is great and delivery was the next day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable, 28 July 2014
I had several meters of UV edging to reattach to a foresail..Tried big needles small thimble, hopeless. Next tried some fancy expensive sewing gadget, equally useless. It took a while for this to arrive but it did just in time and thank heavens for that!

It's man sized so too big for me, however it was pretty straight forward to pinch up the strap over the back of my hand with an elastic band and as such it was still quite comfortable to use. Eureka! Sail sewn neatly and comparatively easily.

Every sailing yacht should have one of these on board in case a sail begins to unravel. A stitch in time saves nine, so true!
5.0 out of 5 stars This kit is EXTENSIVE!, 28 July 2014
Well worth the money, I'm really impressed with it. I also like the fact that it opens out into a series of clear plastic pouches so you can quickly find the things you need. There was also enough room left to add quite a few other items. In fact mine is bulging at the seams now but the zip is coping fine.
