5.0 out of 5 stars My review & corrections to others, 6 Nov 2013
Great product. Nice and strong with a rigid base. Big enough to hold more logs (weight-wise) than you may be able to carry in one trip, so don't hurt your back by getting carried away the first time you load it up.

Corrections to others:

It's "not made of canvas" = WRONG. Canvas means "heavy duty fabric" (Wikipedia). Whilst this carrier isn't made entirely of either cotton or linen (which some may have assumed), it IS made of a heavyweight fabric, which means it IS canvas. There's no deception here.

Let Them Talk [Special Edition] ~ Hugh Laurie
5.0 out of 5 stars I like it, so there, 1 Feb 2013

2.0 out of 5 stars Lazy wailing, 3 Oct 2012
I tried really hard to like this album, suggested based on past purchases. "How to Save a Life" is the best known track, but I couldn't bring myself to add even this to my playlist, as the lyrics feel as though they only properly arrive / peak consistently (even if only fractionally) late, such that annoyance overrides enjoyment. After two or three play throughs, I had to switch the CD off part way through another track (I forget which, they blended). Although I was focused on something else, my brain was still sufficiently engaged in the music to demand: STOP playing this NOW! NO MORE "lazy wailing / drawling"! Not my cup of tea, sorry. I recommend a listen through online before you buy in… Read more
