Not bad but not perfect either
on 25 September 2014
A bit bigger than expected but okay for longer camping stays at campsites. For hiking/ backpacking I'd really prefer something smaller than this.
One end of the container has a slightly raised "S" on the flip up lid and the other end a "P"...in same colour. Although there's no actual difference in hole aperture size so of no real use unless you have black salt that looks like pepper or vice versa...or maybe useful if you're blind or partially sighted ...perhaps. To give you an idea of the quantity each compartment can hold I filled the salt side with fine sea salt and it held approximately 16 to 17 grams. Ideal for using for more than one person or on long trips even but I'll still be looking for something a bit smaller.
Oh yes, I found that whilst the flip lids didn't flip open when shaken the flip up part of the lids were a wee bit loose. The undersides of the lids have four prongs that make a seal by filling and closing off the product dispensing apertures. As they're not a tight fit I wouldn't think they'd be watertight.
On the issue of value I'd say this is really the sort of product you'd expect to find in a pound store ...in a pack of two...even if you can't find them there. However, I think the cost here at Amazon fairly reflects the product cost plus the cost of delivery and packaging so in that sense not bad. Shame this stuff can't be purchased from high street stores and the like.
