1.0 out of 5 stars Waterproof? Maybe for the first week, 3 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If like me, you want a jacket thats breathable and waterproof as you spend a significant amount of time outdoors, please, PLEASE do not buy this one. I'm usually very impressed by Craghoppers; I wouldnt buy any other brand of trousers, but not this jacket. I bought it as I needed a new one for field work, during which I would spend four weeks outdoors in the Lake District. Ok, this was in the summer of 2012, the wettest June in history, and I wouldnt have expected anything to last up to that. However, this one didnt last two weeks. First of all, if you're in anyway pear shaped dont buy this. The jacket was VERY tight around my hips, the only redeeming feature being that you could unzip the bottom to provide some more room. Second, the jacket is in no way breathable. In fact, on dry days with a heavy amount of hiking your apt to end up wet on the inside it has so little breathability. Third, and most important, its not waterproof. Showerproof, briefly, maybe, but if you want something thats going to keep you dry after a few hours of rain then this is not for you. VERY disappointed, Craghoppers :-(

5.0 out of 5 stars Only had to Apply Once, 3 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I cannot recommend this suncream more. Ok, it smells a bit odd, and it can stay gready for a wee while before absorbing, but its to stop you burning and it does its job! I bought this for some field work in Cyrpus, which would mean spending all day in the sun with little shade, and being a fair skinned red headed female, it was a fairly daunting task. Ive bought sun creams before which needed reapplying constantly, and I have still burned through them. Others have been good, but irritated my sensitive skin. I only needed to put this on once, ans I didnt burn at all! If you have sensitive skin, skin that's impossible to tan, or skin that burns in the Scottish Hignlands in the middle of winter on a cloudy day then this is for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hours of fun, 3 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wasnt really expecting much, but as soon as I placed this toy in my hamsters cage she woke up and began to inspect it. It kept her occupied for the next 20 minutes as she tried to work out how to disassemble it, the littler bugger. She still seems to love it as I can hear her moving the ball around at night, and seems to be a great chew toy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Works a Charm, 3 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to use with my Galaxy S4, and due to the price I wasnt expecting much. However the connections seem to be of very good quality, there is no need to install anything, and I could use it straight out the box to stream movies from my phone to the tv, with no problems. I would highly recommended this cable if you want to view movies or photos from your phone on your television.

3.0 out of 5 stars inventive product, however pieces were missing, 22 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived today (really quick postage!), and we had fun assembling the kit. It isnt as tricky as some of these reviews are making out, and we ended up with a nice hamster playground built with ease. The only thing stopping this product from getting a full five stars is that two of the panels were missing. VERY disappointing, however we've already built it and have no intentions of disassembling it to return. On the whole, a good and inventive product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Canvas hasn't fallen down, 22 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would definitely recommend these strips for canvases. I hung a rather large one on my wall weeks ago and I have even repositioned it since using the same strips, and it still hasnt fallen down! I'm actually rather amazed. Heres hoping they don't leave marks on my rented flat walls!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Value for Money, 22 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great value for money, although still "normal" length rather than cropped on a short thing like myself! It appears to be of much better quality than the jumpers from Primark, and has survived the washing machine twice now without shrinking, stretching or losing shape.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Kit, Many Embellishments, 22 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This kit is great value for money, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to start scrapbooking or cardmaking. It comes with lots of materials, embellishments, feathers, ribbons etc and is loads of fun to use. The box the kit comes in is great and very sturdy! The one thing I would say is that this (obviously) isn't a stand-alone kit. Please dont give it a bad review because it doesnt come with blank cards, you will have to provide those for yourself! I would definitely recommend this kit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Layerin, 22 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well what can I say, this fleece is great value for money. I bought it as a gift for my partner who wears it all the time. I wouldnt recommended it solely as a winter fleece, however its lightweight and great for layering, providing ample insulation.
