CHEMTRONICS 62108 Ultra Jet All-Way Air Duster - 1 by CHEMTRONICS
Digital Sensor/ Camera manufacturers don't recommend ANY kind of compressed air "dust-off" because of contaminants. Instead they often recommend using rubber squeeze blowers....

... the problem is, rubber bulbs harbour all kinds of contaminants which can then be transferred onto sensors with even their feeble puffs!

This Chemtronics "Ultra-Jet AllWay" is powerful and guaranteed to be filtered to below 0.2microns and to never spray contaminants. I've found these claims to be true and it is very effective at removing dry contaminants from sensors without adding to the problem.

2.0 out of 5 stars Anatomically wrong!, 12 Oct 2013
If you have flat knees these might just fit you! Seriously though, these pads are nearly impossible as the padding is a flat, semi-oval, of firm closed cell foam that doesn't mould itself to your knee, rather it tries to squash it flat.
Also, for me, the top part, above the knee, is too loose, whilst over the knee is tight, (and I am right in the middle of this size range).
All in all it's just wrong and too uncomfortable to wear and I couldn't recommend it. The second star is because the material and stitching appears to be good.
3.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, but..., 3 Oct 2013
Chose this by the high number of positive reviews here, I can only assume they haven't compared it with the market leading (?) brand.

A bit disappointed as it isn't of the same standard as the one supplied by my Doctor's Pharmacy. (Tubigrip? Who knows, unmarked lengths.)

This has 10 elastic "bands" per 10cm cf nearly 12 per 10cm, and is only about half the thickness of material. I suppose the old adage that you get what you pay for holds true.

It will do the job, just not as well!
