5.0 out of 5 stars Wide viewing porro joy!, 2 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There is nothing not to like about these Olympus 7x35 WIDE angle binoculars, yes a 9.3 wide field of view and no blurring at the edges, very nice clear glass! A decent close focus of about 3 meters too for those little things in life and not too heavy. I first acquired the Olympus 8x40's a few years ago when I started bird watching and they were my primary pair until I started investigating other binoculars but really the Olympus ones always seemed just right all respects, you get more bang for your buck in a Porro prism binocular and the views are more natural and easier on the eyes compared to Roof prism bins in my opinion. I have looked through Leica & other high value German bins and really for the extra hundreds ££££ you pay is it really worth it..? Try these Olympus the 7x35 or the 8x40 you will not be disappointed!

2.0 out of 5 stars End of days...., 19 Jun. 2016
This review is from: End of Days (Audio CD)
The first new Discharge album in 8 years and what do we get...? Not much to be honest, i really tried to like this but after several attempts I'm afraid it really is the end of days, an aptly named title because I can't see the point of this. It just sounds formulaic and hackneyed and even compared to Disensitise, which wasn't great it sounds weak and repetitive, it's still Discharge though and musically some of it is very good just ditch the vocals!The last very good Discharge album in my opinion was their self titled 2002 album with cal...it was tighter, better produced, better musically & lyrically. Two albums in 14 years... Come on lads you gotta work harder! Even nuclear blast can't save them this time.

Pinewood Cotton Men's T-Shirt - Green, X-Large

5.0 out of 5 stars The best quality t shirts out there!, 29 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I first discovered pinewood clothing about 3 years ago and have kitted myself out with their great quality/ value gear ever since. These t shirts have not failed me, I like the dark green colour and the cut is fairly generous but at my advancing age I'm not interested in fitted or slim fit stuff anymore.. The neck on these keeps its shape and is fairly high up on the back which I prefer and they are very hard wearing ( still going strong after two years constant use) I even bought XL even though I'm L (not available) with the intention of washing and tumble drying to shrink the size down as they tick all the boxes and I have yet to find another t shirt this good so while Amazon still have them it's a no brainier. By the way pinewood jackets are really great too!


Bushnell 120842 Legacy WP 8x42mm Porro Prism Binoculars
Bushnell 120842 Legacy WP 8x42mm Porro Prism Binoculars
Price: £128.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic waterproof, wide angle porro prisms!, 22 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These Legacy's ( 8x42) are absolutely fantastic for the money, I have tried several pairs of roof prism binoculars but i didn't enjoy using them, I just couldn't adjust them to my eyes but find all porro bins to be much more user friendly and the image more natural. Someone in a bird hide recently asked me to look through a pair of £600 plus Leica bins but honestly I preferred these Bushnell's! The field of view on these is a very generous 8.2 or 430 ft @ 1000 yards. To my knowledge you will not find a wider angled modern binocular roof or porro prism although I think the Olympus 7x35 DPS1 has a FOV of 9.3...anyway back to these and a bit of spec..weight 751 grams
FOV 8.2
Close focus 3.6 meters
Bak 4 fully multi-coated optics
Waterproof and nitrogen purged fog proof
The padded case is adequate but the flimsy strap is throwaway. One reviewer of these compared them to a pair of Nikon action ( also waterproof and similar spec) and said these Bushnell's were brighter and more comfortable to hold and use and i concur! Just look at all the positive reviews on the American Amazon site and Judge for yourself, obviously Bushnell is an American brand but i have not found anything ( opticron, Hawke ect) to match these and at this price.. I did however pick mine up for just over half the price they are currently selling for on here but even at £105 I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them!

5.0 out of 5 stars Digiscoping discovery with this little beauty!, 22 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am no expert on spotting scopes but for £50... This opticron scope is fantastic value and a pleasure to use. The mini tripod is made of some kind of metal not plastic and does a very good job of keeping the scope stable when using on a bird hide ledge for example. This purchase was made primarily so i could view birds perched at a great distance, obviously it has its limitations but what really makes this bit of kit worthwhile is the fun you can have using a phone camera and the scope as a photographic lens...and the lightweight nature and portability of the adventurer scope means you can just chuck it in a rucksack and get out there! Highly recommended at this reduced price if you are a bird watching enthusiast! To my knowledge opticron have discontinued this model so snap it up while it's still available and at this price...Enjoy!

RSPB 8x32 Puffin Binocular
RSPB 8x32 Puffin Binocular
Offered by fotoSENSE_Ltd
Price: £54.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 7 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really had great hopes for these puffin 8x32 bins after reading all the positive reviews...the close focus is meant to be 3m but i found this to be nearer 5 if that, surely i was just unlucky with a dud pair? The focussing wheel i found a little stiff and not very smooth and the image and sharpness nothing special when compared to a pair of eschenbach Arena D plus 8x32 which I found superior in all departments. I sent the puffins back and shall stick to my bushnell Legacy porro prisms!

4.0 out of 5 stars supa affordable walking boots!, 16 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These boots are reasonably comfortable and i prefer the less chunky styling of these compared to say merrell or Berghaus ect..tthey look good around town in jeans or off road walking on rougher ground. I don't know how waterproof they are though..obviously they are not goretex lined at this price..i have used karrimor boots and shoes before and there is nothing wrong with them,ok they are not made in the Uk anymore but then merrell,Berghaus and ecco are all made in china anyway! These are not stiff or hard on your feet,give your feet a cheap treat and order a pair today! Happy walking

celio is a new discovery,a french label and i have to say this beanie hat for a tenner is very good! why pay £30 more just to show off a little logo...doh, This hat is mostly wool mixed with some acrylic and obviously its going to be a tad itchy..but then i have zero hair.A nice quality substantial beanie for the up and coming uk weather bombs!

5.0 out of 5 stars superb quality jacket!, 5 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have bought jeans and shirts by selected homme and all of it is very good quality and buying on amazon you get some fantastic bargains and this jacket is no exception. This jacket is very rugged,fits great and has great pockets including two zipped ones on the chest. The RRP is £200..and it is very well constructed so at just over £30 its an absolute steal so order now and you will have a great warm jacket for next winter..and for cooler spring days! I have bought jackets by oneill,element and addict but seriously this selected jacket knocks all of them out of the water for quality.

4.0 out of 5 stars only issue is with the size.., 30 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This t shirt does run small..about 2 sizes too small depending on how you like your fit..i would say this t is intended to fit tight! However if you want regular fit just order 2 sizes bigger ( i am Large and the xx Large fitted perfect not too tight not too loose ) The t shirt is made in Turkey of 50% cotton & 50% polyester with a cool distressed washed out look. Good luck!
