CamelBak Podium Chill Bottle (Race Edition, 21 -Ounce)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great bottle, May 5, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Does what is says it should. Best if add ice before heading out. Definitely stays cooler than non-insulated bottles. Lightweight and flexible bottle. Subjectively the insulated Polar bottles keep liquids cooler but doesn't have the same nozzle system which is really good on the CamelBak.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really like these., May 5, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Better than the K-490NC which I have. Bigger though. Yes if you push the ear pads from the outside they do make a sort of electronic noise you can hear but apart from that well made and sound great. Need to wear them in a bit as like most of them, except the 490NC they can warm up the ears a bit. Sits on the ears not over the ears. Very good noise cancelling and cuts out close conversations out better than some.

Fun, interesting, unique. Tune is easier to make out than others. Well made and presentation box is good. Tricky to wrap.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says, May 5, 2014

Need to be careful on the stringing - too tight and it pings and provides arm discomfort. Strung softer at say 54lbs provides a better response - a tad more power but a lot more control and comfort.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very comfortable and supportive, May 5, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Had some arch support issues and finding slippers that provide a supportive shoe like comfort was what I was after. This is great. Well made and a lot of thought has gone into the design and the interior/exterior is very well made. Got a size bigger for the slip into them. A half size would have been better but there weren't any. Not cheap but worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Would have got 5 stars if they sent the right one, February 16, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Disappointed to get the wrong one sent to me. While similar the one I received had the readings on the side of the thermometer. But at the end of the day they all do the same thing - read the temperature quickly (well within 5 seconds). I'd have returned it but the cost of freight back to the US from foreign lands is expensive.

But they are good devices - the accuracy has helped out on many occasions and saved the day a number of times. Very pleased despite the initial set-back.

5.0 out of 5 stars The right balance, February 16, 2014
I really like mine. There is always a compromise of weight, size and function when looking at tools. Different needs and situations. I've owned higher end SAK's, a Leatherman Wave and Wingman, the smaller Micra and a Style CS over the years and wanted to get an everyday tool with the things I'd use the most which would also suit travel, home use etc. At the same time hunks of plastic and metal can be a bit tiring and overdone.

I think this is the right balance for me. The natural wood finish is impressive and will improve with age - it has style. People comment on it's style with the timber finish. The tools are all pretty useful, the knife an acceptable size, the bottle and can openers more useful than say a corkscrew (can't remember corked wine bottles - certainly not where I live). The scissors are good but slightly different with their serrations. It feels balanced in the hand, is the usual SAK finish and in someways quite retro cool. Not too heavy, not too wide, no superfluous and unnecessary tools. It's all good.

Nice to have a well engineered well thought through product. Very pleased with the build quality, the sound quality and the functions of the radio. It's easy to use as well. Could be a bit thinner but otherwise delighted with it.

Does what it says on the box and does it well. Seems fast in usage and never misses a beat.
