Venum Contender Boxing Gloves - EU-VENUM-2053-12oz , Grey , 12 oz
Venum Contender Boxing Gloves - EU-VENUM-2053-12oz , Grey , 12 oz
Price: £33.70

3.0 out of 5 stars Robust, snug but a bit overpriced?, 25 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These Venum gloves look nice and if you're just going down the gym to hit a bag they will be fine, although I much prefer to use 10oz gloves for bag work. The extra padding, and these gloves are quite bulky when new for a 12oz glove, can result in wrist sprain or injury when hitting a smooth(ish) rounded surface of a bag particularly if the bag is spinning or you have weak wrists or previous injury problems.

The glove itself is a reasonable fit on the hand, snug but not overly tight but I did find that the velco fastners held the glove rather tightly to my wrist rather than allowing the glove to settle on my fist. Personally, I'd always prefer a lace up, loosened for bag work so you can get your hand in and out without having to do the full undoing and doing up all the time, although this is possibly only suitable for those with stronger wrists and practiced punching style.

As with all these faux-leather brands I wouldn't wear for sparring as your partner won't thank you if his face becomes one large friction burn.

Overall, seem ok and robust enough to bag work. I'd go for a lighter glove on pads and real leather for sparring. They're a tad expensive compared to what else is available out there.


BWT Vida Water Filter Jug, White, 2.6 Litre
BWT Vida Water Filter Jug, White, 2.6 Litre
Price: £13.23

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a standard water filter that works as it should. Capacity is similar to other jugs and the price of the filters is comparable to other leading brands.

Although it doesn't necessarily distinguish itself from the competition it undoubtably holds it own.

If you are looking to buy a water filter, then there is no reason not to buy this one.


Mitre Stade Rugby Match Ball - White/Green/Orange, Size 5
Mitre Stade Rugby Match Ball - White/Green/Orange, Size 5
Price: £9.83

4.0 out of 5 stars A good budget match ball from Mitre, 12 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A nice rugby ball from Mitre. The textured surface makes for sure handling in wet and muddy conditions and it is robust enough to withstand a tough kicking season.

I've now had the ball a couple of weeks and once kicked in it has a nice feel and hasn't required any top up air. My ball is a size five but I understand it is also available in sizes 3 and 4.

Overall a nice, budget option for a match ball at club level for both juniors and seniors.


Thermos Performance Stainless Steel Cold Cup - 470 ml
Thermos Performance Stainless Steel Cold Cup - 470 ml
Offered by Youtils
Price: £16.64

3.0 out of 5 stars What's it for?, 5 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Looks the business but I do really wonder what it's for. It only keeps drinks cold, not hot, and it isn't sealable so you can't just drop it into your bag.

When realistically are you going to have a cold drink long enough for this to make a difference? Possibly if you are in a car, or are just a very slow drinker. Beyond that, I don't see the point.


Garnier Ambre Solaire Protection Spray SPF15 200ml
Garnier Ambre Solaire Protection Spray SPF15 200ml
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use, 22 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A long time market leader in a spray bottle.

Easy to use, soaking in well and isn't greasy. Not the cheapest but a name you can trust, and you don't want to be skimping on your suncare.


Igenix AMZ01 1 L Kettle, 4-Slice Toaster and Microwave Set - Stainless Steel
Igenix AMZ01 1 L Kettle, 4-Slice Toaster and Microwave Set - Stainless Steel
Price: £136.49

4.0 out of 5 stars Stylish set for the modern home, 10 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A nice stylish kit which is particular suited to someone buying a new flat. The brushed chrome look is clean and modern and the three items are all sturdily built.

The items, a toaster, micro wave and kettle are all fairly basic in terms of functionality, but sometimes simplicity is best. Who needs all those settings on microwaves? Does anyone understand them? On the oven here you just pick time and power and off you go.


GreenPan, Venice, Ceramic Non-Stick Shallow Casserole, 26cm, 3.6L
GreenPan, Venice, Ceramic Non-Stick Shallow Casserole, 26cm, 3.6L
Price: £64.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice casserole dish cum wok for an induction hob, 4 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Nice casserole dish cum wok for an induction hob. 26cm (about 10 inches) in diameter so a pretty standard sized pan, come with an glass lid so you can see what's going on inside.

Only downside was that the insulation in the handles wasn't great so they did get a bit hot, but other than that a very good buy.


3M X2 Series Fuel Premium Line Spectacles - Bronze
3M X2 Series Fuel Premium Line Spectacles - Bronze
Price: £25.70

4.0 out of 5 stars As sunglasses they are good for a budget pair, 20 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Got to admit that I got these as sunglasses without even realising they were protection wear.

As sunglasses they are good for a budget pair, the men's are good with an anti scratch coating, the bridge is rubberised and the arm have a length adjustment mechanism.

They look particularly suited for running or cycling if you like that look at low cost and the protective characteristics are a bonus.

For the price, not a bad buy at all.


SPEEDLINK Atecs Soft 2X-Large Gaming Mousepad - Black
SPEEDLINK Atecs Soft 2X-Large Gaming Mousepad - Black
Price: £19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars 2xl mouse mat, 9 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It's a nice mouse mat, the 2xl size is about 100cm x 50x and i unrolls nicely from the package. The surface is very smooth and works well with my optical mouse.

For a mouse matt if is very large and to be honest I use it more a desk mat than a mouse mat, but I guess there is no law against that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best in the market, 7 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
3M post it flags are definitely the market leader. Adhesive and reusable, and available in a range of colours. A few people have mentioned that you can't write on them but one side is good for writing either in Vito or pencil.

If you want a post it flag, these are really the best.
