OSCO Mesh Pen Pot - Black
OSCO Mesh Pen Pot - Black

5.0 out of 5 stars Best pen pot ever., 29 Jan. 2017
A fair bit wider and slightly shorter than a coke can. Has a nice top lip, and wired mesh so you can see inside whilst still maintaining it's strength. Base is a soft material rubber padding which grips nicely. Looks great and you can fit pens, pencils, usb cables, crayons and lots of other stuff in it without it rolling around all over your desk. Excellent value for money.

Nite Ize S-Biner Micro Lock - Stainless
Nite Ize S-Biner Micro Lock - Stainless

3.0 out of 5 stars Small, usable but not perfect, 29 Jan. 2017
Small, much smaller than expected. Tolerances for one of them was bad, leaves a paper thin gap after 'locking'. Pin secured on one side only meaning it can push out slightly, and holding onto it with finger hurt. Over time, it will wear out and push out completely as there only is a tiny extrusion pin compared to my larger carabiner which has larger rivet pins securing both sides (although that doesn't have a lock).

Due to it's size, and the lock, it is hard to detach or attach onto anything else regularly. Aside from that it is usable, but not perfect.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good shoe, would reccomend., 7 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having bought 9.5 size Ascis before, the size of these fit as expected. Slightly slippy on wet road/tarmac, but that is as expected for trail shoes. Good cushioning and grip on trails. The mesh on the front top may be a bit fragile, and it is not entirely waterproof but it is breathable. The lugs provide good grip, they fill quite easily with mud but are easy to shake off again when dried out or when running through non muddy terrain. Overall would recommend for trails and hill running.


Under Armour Men's UA Storm Headline Curved Brim Cap - Black, Medium/Large
Under Armour Men's UA Storm Headline Curved Brim Cap - Black, Medium/Large
Offered by G.T.L

1.0 out of 5 stars Too small., 7 Dec. 2016
Bought M/L - it fits far too small, too tight around the temple. It is elastic around the back and it not adjustable in size, which I think is one of the biggest flaws of this cap. it is waterproof and should help in light rain. For an adult female - get L/XL at the minimum, and XL/2XL for adult male. Had to return it, unfortunately since I used amazon uk promo credit to buy it I don't get refunded the entire amount only a few pounds.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good all-weather compression top., 21 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The navy blue is a nice colour. The compression is fine as a base layer in winter weather. Despite the confusing branding of heatgear being suitable for hot weather (and cold gear suitable for cold weather), I found this long sleeve shirt was fine to wear in colder weather like 8-10 degrees celsius. Unless you are in sub-zero degrees celsius temperatures, you don't need the thicker materials of coldgear, and heatgear should work fine. Furthermore, I found myself overheating during a run outside in these temperatures and found it harder to breathe at first due to the compression, so these are really suitable for any weather despite the confusing branding, which I only understood what it meant after I bought them. Overall these are quite well made (in Cambodia), and should last a long time if you take care of them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good compression, and keeps you warm., 21 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These keep me warm on outside runs, despite the confusing branding of heatgear (which is supposed to keep you cool in hot weather), I thought they did the opposite of keeping you warm in cold weather and only realised until after I had received them. Apparently their coolgear brand line has even warmer materials than this, so unless you are running in sub-zero degree celsius weather then these ones should be fine. I ran in 9-10 degrees celsius weather today and they are fine. They keep the calf muscle fairly tight but not overly so, and stop it from shaking about, leading to a more comfortable run. There is noticeable contrasting coloured greyish/white stitching on the outside of the sides of the legs, I did not see them clearly in the photo and only noticed them after I bought them - I would have definitely preferred a plain black colour all around. The waistband can go quite high up and is quite tight and affects breathing slightly. As another reviewer said, these snag quite easily with thorn bushes and nettles if you are doing a lot of trail running and a part of the contrasting coloured threading became loose on their 2nd use. Pricewise these are quite expensive for what they are, but they are cheap compared to other bigger brands I found. Overall I am quite satisfied with this purchase although I would be looking for a better pair next time based on my needs.

SteelSeries QcK Mini, Gaming Mouse Pad, 250mm x 200mm, Cloth, Rubber Base, Laser & Optical Mouse Compatible - Black
Price: £6.71

5.0 out of 5 stars Good pad., 14 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cloth is quite soft. Has a medium amount of friction, more than I would like - I guess it takes time to get used to it. Comes in a small box rolled up, so it is not completely flat when you get it.

edit: changed review from 3 to 5 stars. I've gotten used to it over time, and like that it stays accurate over long term usage. Some white dust visible but easy to clean.

1.0 out of 5 stars loose fit, saggy edges. not fit for purpose., 22 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
cheap clear case which does not fit properly to the phone. edges sag and can take it off quite easily. there is a risk of it falling out of the case, something which should never happen on a well fitting case.
