Do you want rice all over the floor of your car?
on 15 June 2017
Bought this for use on a safari in South Africa. Although I filled it at home to see how much rice it would need (5kg fills it up) I didn't actually use it until I got to South Africa. I duly purchased 5kg of rice and filled the bag for use on the rear window of the mini van we were travelling in only to find rice all over the floor within an hour of use. The bag had split close to the stitching. The stitching itself was okay but the material had simply pulled apart close to the stitching. Not having a sewing machine on safari I had to throw the rice away and use my jacket for camera support during the rest of the trip. After the safari we went on to another game reserve and I was able to sew the bag up and refill it before we got there. Guess what? Within a day it had split again in a different place. Same problem, not the stitching but the material itself coming apart.
I resigned myself to the fact that I had bought a cheap piece of garbage and once again used my coat for the camera support. Severely disappointed.
