These are for keeping lungs healthy, and they don't do that. Often, the elastic snaps, or the nose clip just falls off. They don't form anything near a seal that you get from a normal £2 mask.

Don't waste your money on these. If you want to keep breathing, invest £15 in a simple respirator that lasts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Arthritis sufferers rejoice! Programmers wince, 3 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've had this keyboard/mouse for about 6 months now. It's truly excellent, has some flaws, but they can be ignored if you desire comfort

Pros
- comfort is excellent. I no longer suffer wrist pain (arthritis, it sucks)
- typing is natural and quick and responsive. The chiclet style keys are more comfortable when you also suffer finger pain
- design is wonderful, batteries included, no awkward clips, magnetic covers
- the mouse is surprisingly good. I normally use a gaming mouse at home but at work, it's ideal when paired with a sliding wrist support (this one is excellent, though the packaging is not useful when you have weak hands! https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/r.html?C=CR243XOHCVNM&K=AZ6E21AU0TCPA&R=3KGHQIZ3YN8OS&T=C&U=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.co.uk%2Fdp%2FB002JPJTTW%2Fref%3Dpe_1909131_77697121_tnp_email_TE_AMZLdp_1&A=6IPYHUVNWVTWRGIGDYQOAJPQJQQA&H=IF4CMLSAYWXVX9KM22FKKAFMCI0A&ref_=pe_1909131_77697121_tnp_email_TE_AMZLdp_1)
- separate keypad reduces desk clutter, useful to have when doing fast number input but otherwise handy to discard.

Cons:
- layout is squashed. This is irritating if you're a developer, or someone who uses the navigation keys a lot. I really wish they had made it a little wider and kept the default layout for the cursor and page up/down/etc keys
- function keys are not chiclets and are really annoying to use
- there's a sliding switch to flick between function and media keys, ugh...
- I've had to get it replaced twice due to failing keys, however, Microsoft support have been excellent in arranging replacements quickly so I can't criticise for that.

In an ideal world, this keyboard would have the full standard layout, but then in an ideal world I wouldn't have problems using my hands! This keyboard has kept me able to work in comfort and for that, I can put up with some layout issues.

Turns out that this is a terrible idea. It's a real shame they don't put a warning on the bottle.

Delicious though.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why buy kids socks, when you can just buy adult socks and wash them., 30 Jun. 2016
These socks shrink significantly after the first wash. I've tried twice to get hold of Karrimor customer support but they're run by Sports Direct, who are about as interested in supporting customers as Nigel Farage is in making friends in Europe.

Purchased this for a bit cheaper from CycleSurgery. It's damn powerful. Warning: This may actually be powerful enough to slice off your son's hand, if he was acting the maggot in Cloud City. Do not look directly at it. In fact, don't even look at what it's pointed at. Just look away.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just stick your finger in a socket, it's safer, 25 Feb. 2016
Monstercube offered to send me this if I changed my review on another of their products to 5 stars. So, it's a bribe battery, and not a very good one. I'd be afraid to plug anything in to this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some poor quality parts, but they fix/repair as needed., 25 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was pretty annoyed when the buckle broken on the strap, but then the bag was 2 years old. What miffed me most was that the Moleskine customer service was really difficult to deal with. Days between responses and often in poorly-worded English.

However, they replaced my 2 year old bag without any issue. It just took a long time to confirm what bag I had and what the problem was. I encourage anyone with a damaged/defective bag to contact Moleskine and ask for a repair/replacement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy them, buy them now, 4 Feb. 2016

These are just amazing. I bought them for a cheap pair of Mpow Magneto earphones which had terrible scratch earbuds and tinny sound. Now I've got a perfect fit and rich sounds.

I didn't get bribed for this review, I didn't even get a free set. I'm just enthusiastic about good stuff:)
