4.0 out of 5 stars Good watch for the money, 17 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a military style watch, which means it mimics some of the design qualities of a "real" military watch. These are, I think, black face, clear large luminescent numbers and simple stripped down design. The strap is a little confusing, it is canvas but with a leather effect lining and a buckle. Not velcro as described. The movement is Japanese but it is assembled in China.

Good Points
1) You can really read the face, clear and big enough for the most short sighted
2) Design is simple and unfussy - if you like that then you will like this watch
3) It's very light and easy to wear
4) Bezel is slightly raised at the edge and the glass slightly recessed which should prevent chipping and scratching

Bad Points
1) Date is so small you need a magnifying glass to see it, plus its so deep set the shadow cast by the face obscures the numerals
2) There is a 24 hour clock marked on the face, very small and thin numerals and so hard to read
3) The strap looks flimsy and is small, I can't see it lasting too long

Happy enough with this watch. Good points out weigh the bad. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every dog should have these, 13 Jan. 2013

This review is from: GB Choc Allsorts (Target)
shhh just taken over this account for a moment. I am a dog, Labrador actually, and I love Good Boy Choc Allsorts. They are lovely lusciousness in a pack. I have to sit and give paw for each one, but frankly I would do a song and dance routine that would make a Chihauhau blush to get my chops on these pieces of joy. Also you get a Choc ball and a bone. All Boy Choc Allsorts - not just for Christmas ... have to go now ...


FLOSO® Mens Thermal Peaked Hat with Fleece Inner Lining (M/L (58 cm)) (Black)
FLOSO® Mens Thermal Peaked Hat with Fleece Inner Lining (M/L (58 cm)) (Black)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value hat, 28 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought a Mountain Hat from Highlander that was a tad too small. So went with this one as it was very low priced, well reviewed and had ear protection. Well this one is too big, sadly. What I learn is that for FLOSO Large is Large and Medium is Medium. On the hat, it is well made with a wide peak to pull down on a windy day. Ear protection is generous and pins back to keep it out of the way. Fabric is soft but appears waterproof, and it has a comfortable soft inner lining. Hat is fairly thick and will keep the wind out. Can fold easily to go into a coat pocket. Going to keep it as a spare.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love this bag, 25 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought a Chromebook and needed a bag to put it in. I had ordered one previously for an Asus EEE PC and going on the sizes they recommend it only just fitted, with room for the cable just about and that's all. So I went large and got this. I have to say that it is too big for the 12 inch Chromebook but it has morphed into a brief case / computer bag.

Good points are:

1) The lining where the computer goes is soft so as not to scratch the out casing.
2) There are innumerable pockets which take my computer, cable, external hard drive, notebook and the odd lot of papers
3) It's very well made and the red and black adds a bit of style to what is otherwise a pretty boring product category.
4) It has external zipped pockets so if you need something on the move you don't always have to open the main bag.
5) Like the over the shoulder / messenger bag strap
6) The zip starts half way up the side. Some might say this was a downside, however, it does prevent the bag from emptying itself on the floor.

Bad points are:

1) Carrying handle is very tight and while strong I am sure would dig in after a few minutes
2) Everything I carry is light, a heavy load would put a strain on the shoulders and push the bag out of shape.

Conclusion: Not what I bought it for, but love it anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Useful if you need a lot of sockets, 22 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You will need to read the reviews as I did before purchase, however, the gist is this will only protect against one surge, then the fuse is blown and the socket has to be replaced (green light goes out).There is plenty of advice in the reviews for anyone who wants something more. For me the tower is a great space saver. The offset sockets make it easy to gain access and plug in or pull out plugs. Its simple to assemble, just push the base on and away you go. The plastic base and case feel a little on the cheap side, but sufficient for a product that is going to sit in an out of the way spot and not move to much. My thought is that if your chosen use is going to subject it to a lot of wear and tear you might look at something more substantial.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this hat, 19 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a really good hat. Waterproof, comes down over your ears if you need it and has a short wire reinforced peak which you can pin back. Well made and well worth the money. It may look a bit silly in town, but I wear it to walk the dog and it's just right. On size I would say Medium is Small to Medium, so if you are Medium to Large, go Large.

Bagbase Tri-Fold Sports Wallet - Black
Bagbase Tri-Fold Sports Wallet - Black

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Value, and very useful ..., 30 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought my first tri-fold wallet in a hurry from a leading supermarket, after loosing a "proper" leather wallet. I bought the least garish one I could find (black and white pattern). It was fine but with too many pockets and zips making it very bulky and it got dirty quickly. So to the point of this review. This one is a plain colour, I chose black. It is small enough to fit in an inside coat pocket. It has enough pockets, including a zip pocket for change and a window pocket for your driving licence. It's also water proof - accidentally dropped in a puddle at a cash point so I can vouch for this. Very unobtrusive and fit for purpose. Can't ask any more than that, Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not for normal sized shoes, 30 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these to fit into a pair of ankle length boots to offer better insulation. The problem is that they are very bulky and take up too much room. The heal of the insole is thicker than the toe, for obvious resaons, but it has the effect of drving your foot into the constricted toe area of the shoe/boot. The result, blisters. However, I transferred then to a pair of wellington boots with more room and they are perfect. The verdict is, these are really designed for work or walking boots. Not suitable for "ordinary" shoes and boots. If that is what you want, look for something thinner and more lightweight.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great shirt for the summer ..., 7 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great shirt, if you like a plain colour and simple design. Button down collar, front breast pocket and vent at the back. That's about it. Will look good in jeans or something smarter. Quite heavy material but a loose fit keeps you cool. One thing, these are ex-store for reasons unknown. There was a slight snag in the stitching in one seam. Not sure if that was why it was an "ex", no one would know and it didn't bother me. Very good value.
