Demarkt Portable Glasses Case, EVA Zipper Glasses Box for The Preservation of Glasses, Sunglasses(Black)
Demarkt Portable Glasses Case, EVA Zipper Glasses Box for The Preservation of Glasses, Sunglasses(Black)
Offered by Demarkt
Price: £1.21

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value for the money., 12 Sept. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this spectacle case to contain a digital forehead/ear thermometer, to keep it safe when rattling around in my medic bag. It fits excellently (I would imagine the case would be a bit big for glasses!) and looks the part. The item took 12 days to be delivered from China, which was within estimate. For the price I think it's very good value for money, and I would buy it again.

I am pleased with this grip strengthener: good build quality, easily adjustable resistance, quite comfortable to use. I bought it as an add-on item and at under a fiver it's great value. Recommended.


CMS50N BLUE OLED Fingertip Pulse Oximeter
CMS50N BLUE OLED Fingertip Pulse Oximeter
Offered by Contec Medical Systems Manufacture
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Reliable, accurate and simple to use., 13 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have used this pulse oximeter as a first-aider at public events for the past month now, and have found it to be reliable, accurate and simple to use. There are several optional displays to choose from. It runs on two AAA batteries which are not supplied, but obtainable anywhere. I have colleagues who have spent very much more money on similar devices that do not perform any better than this one. I am pleased with this item and would recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money., 13 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use these working at music events and I find them very good: much better than the (cheaper) foam plugs, which simply block out sound meaning you cant hear someone speaking to you, or comms like a radio. These earplugs have the effect of turning down the sound: you can still hear everything, just not so loud. The aluminium case is very good quality and hold two earplugs in the main section and a spare plug plus alternative filters in the base. The alternative filters are very tiny and really you need to have a tray or plate to change them on, otherwise they'll get easily lost. I think these plugs are well worth the money and would recommend them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Value., 9 Aug. 2017

Superb value wound closures, enough to kit out several first-aid bags for a very reasonable price. Indistinguishable (to me at least..) from more expensive alternatives. Would definitely buy again.

Not a great deal to say: perfectly good micropore tape at a great price, delivered quickly. What else do you need? If you want micropore tape, buy this, you wont do better.

4.0 out of 5 stars iTunes only digital download., 7 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I liked this film, I thought it was a brave effort, a different twist to the story of the origin of the Major, but the purpose of writing this review is to draw attention to the fact that the "Digital Download" (which was very important for me) is in fact something that only works on iTunes. It's not a UV code, it wont work on any other platform. No iTunes account? Tough, no download. I don't think Amazon makes this clear in its advertising for the DVD, so if you want a digital copy of the movie but don't like the iTunes format, DO NOT BUY THIS DISC.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good intermediate size bag., 7 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This bag is to be used for first aid at events, parkruns etc. It is a good intermediate size, not too small but not so large that it becomes a burden to carry around. A 50 person HSE kit fits inside along with some other bits and pieces without difficulty.I bought mine empty so my comments are about the bag itself, not the contents offered for sale with it as an option . It appears to be quite tough, having a water-resistant lining and a three-way divider you can fix inside with velcro. Four rubber "feet" at the bottom of the bag stops the base getting wrecked. The only criticism that comes to mind is that the strap could do with being a bit longer: I am using it fully extended and its just ok but if I were taller (I'm 5' 11") it might be a problem. The two side pockets are zippered, the front one is open but sealed by the top flap of the bag when closed. The reflective strips are good quality and sewn-on, not cheap printed stripes. The bag is sent quite compressed into a small packet: fill the bag and hang it overnight to get the creases out. I did a fair bit of price comparison before purchasing, and the price here is the best I could find.


Protective PU Leather Camera Case Bag for Leica D-Lux6 Panasonic LX7 coffee dark brown
Protective PU Leather Camera Case Bag for Leica D-Lux6 Panasonic LX7 coffee dark brown

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice case with design issues., 13 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this case for a Leica DLux 6. I have the original Leica case but, if you fit a filter ring and UV filter to the camera, the lens assembly becomes too long to fit the original case, so a replacement was necessary. This case has sufficient play to allow the longer lens to fit. The case looks nice, mine had the embossed "Leica" stamp on the front. It's artificial leather with a nice lining, and has a raised ridge which helps you grip the camera well (like the optional grip you can buy from the manufacturer). The strap however is very nasty, thin and cheap feeling.
The fitting screw has a quarter-inch thread hole in the base so you can use a tripod without removing the case itself, which is handy.
With the original Leica case, the cover section is fitted to the fixing screw at the base, meaning you can use the camera without completely removing the cover section (it hangs free from the screw), unfortunately this isn't the case with with the replacement: the twin press-stud fixing means you have to remove the cover section completely to see the rear screen and access the control buttons on the camera (and then find a pocket to put it in). This may seem like a small point but in practice it means you are taking the thing off, putting it back, taking it off, putting it back.....better design would have prevented this problem.
Finally I would say that the case is expensive for what it is: I have a very similar PU case for my Fuji X10 and it was less than £10 : you can see them everywhere on Amazon and Ebay. That's not to denigrate this case: it looks nice, it solves a problem, I'd buy it again, but only four stars because a better design, a better strap and a better price should be achievable.

iGadgitz Xtra 37mm Centre Pinch Snap-On Front Lens Hood Cap Cover with Cord for SLR & DSLR Cameras

5.0 out of 5 stars Good product at a good price., 24 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good ,secure fitting lens cap at a good price. The only thing to bear in mind is that it is quite thick, so it may affect whether your camera will still fit in it's case. Nevertheless, this is a good buy and I recommend it.
