1.0 out of 5 stars A very annoying waste of time, 22 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As many others have said the R3 light is fab- worth 5 stars, So why the single star? To warn you that you may well get an earlier version. It looks similar bur has different packaging and, most importantly, does not have the new settings referred to in the description. These are the ones I use most so I don't want the old model but 2 different suppliers have sent it instead of the R2. A very annoying waste of time. Suppliers should deliver the item described and, if they have a slightly different version put that up as a separate item and don't try to pass it off as something else.


Brasher 2 Season Coolmax Hiking Walking Socks Grey Sizes 8 10 Mens
Brasher 2 Season Coolmax Hiking Walking Socks Grey Sizes 8 10 Mens

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Socks, 30 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I brought these because of the sizing. I do a lot of walking and find that it is important to get a sock that is snug. Not too tight (uncomfortable) or too baggy (blisters). Brasher does a good range of sizes (rather than a few sizes which are supposed to fit different sized feet) which makes it easier to find a good fit.

Brasher also produce a range of socks tailored to the needs of the different seasons great as you can pick a pair to suit the conditions. These are designed for warmer weather and are fairly light as a result. Nonetheless they are comfortable and hardwearing. You can buy cheaper but these do give you a good quality product.

I would buy these again

5.0 out of 5 stars Good emergency item, 30 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is loud, compact and highly visible. It comes with a lanyard. The price is ok. You can get cheaper but less robust and certainly quieter whistles but when you use a whistle you want to be heard so this is worth the money. A good emergency item for the great outdoors.

Brasher does a good range of sizes (rather than a few sizes which are supposed to fit different sized feet) which makes it easier to find a good fit.

Brasher also produce a range of socks tailored to the needs of the different seasons. These are designed for cooler weather and are reasonably thick and well padded. They are comfortable and hardwearing. You can buy cheaper but these do give you a good quality product.

I brought these because of the sizing. I do a lot of walking and find that it is important to get a sock that is snug. Not too tight (uncomfortable) or too baggy (blisters). The brasher size range is not too wide which makes it easier to find a good fit. Brasher also produce a range of socks tailored to the needs of the different seasons. These are lighter and thinner which is good for walking in warmer weather.

The sock itself is comfortable and wearing well. I'll continue to use Brasher socks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Flexible travel pack, 30 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a well built pack. It is aimed more at general travel / urban use. It is very good in this role. The back system is padded and reasonably comfortable. It has good pockets. The compression straps and expansion zip mean it can cope excellently with bigger or smaller loads. It is great as carry on luggage and make a useful and flexible holiday pack. It can also be used as a day pack for walking. It is not a full-on technical pack (as it lacks some of the features that you might want for more adventurous routes e.g. straps to carry walking poles, air mesh back system, built in rain cover) but is fine for less strenuous walking.

My only real complaint is that the zip pulls are covered in a plastic coating which does not feel t like it will last. String pulls would be better.

The price is good for the quality and the pack is certainly worth 4 stars.


Buff Wool Buff Multifunctional Headwear Grey Striped 23 cm
Buff Wool Buff Multifunctional Headwear Grey Striped 23 cm
Price: £18.63

4.0 out of 5 stars Versatile, 12 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very versatile item which is lightweight and packs down very small. It can be used as a hat, a balaclava or a facemask. I tend to use mine to cover my mouth and nose when it is very cold. It is thin but it does make a difference and your breath can pass through it reasonably easily. It's not cheap and there are cheaper versions which don't use merino wool. But I love the feeling of merino - slightly cool on the skin.

Nice idea but doesn't work very well in practice. Nothing wrong with the book but in this day and age books are so much poorer than computers at doing this kind of thing. Would not recommend


The Battle: A New History of the Battle of Waterloo
The Battle: A New History of the Battle of Waterloo

Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent history, 26 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Historical accounts of battles can be very dull and hard to read. This one is the opposite. Well written with short chapters it is a good and easy read. It makes the history accessible. Read it before a visit to Waterloo and it made the trip so much more worthwhile. If you have an interest in military history this is excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting historical document, 26 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an interesting document to show how things were. It gives a good overview of what happened. It is not useful as a detailed map for specific locations.
