It's hard to imagine a better value for your dollar. Buy a hot air popcorn popper, a few pounds of popcorn kernels, some butter and garlic and you have the perfect healthy snack for binge watching Netflix.

Hard to argue with the value of this bargain. Perfect little backpack to take on a day trip or travel. Mine has already seen four countries and it's holding up great.

For the price the faucet feel sturdy and functions perfectly. It's nice to find a real metal faucet. It's just too easy to accidentally buy a plastic faucet online.


Half a War (Shattered Sea)
Half a War (Shattered Sea)
by Joe Abercrombie
Edition: Hardcover
Price: $17.77

4.0 out of 5 stars Half Satisfied, July 5, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Abercrombie is one of my favorite authors right now but I get the feeling he's being rushed to put out these books. The Blade Itself series is brilliant and clever. Half a King was brilliant and clever . But I have to say, this book let me down. Rather than wrapping me up in the tales of Father Yarvi, Brand and Thorn we've been given the story with the wrong characters at the front of the stage. The characters we love have become props. So I'm left feeling Half Satisfied at the ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sleeping pad like the OZone puts an inch or more of insulation ..., July 4, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Length:: 8:29 Mins

I'm an avid backpacker and I can tell you when it comes to comfort and survival out on the trail a key piece of equipment is the sleeping pad. It can keep you much warmer in the winter, much drier in the rain and do more to help you sleep than just about any other item in your pack. When the weather is cold, heat transfer from your body to the ground can be deadly. A sleeping pad like the OZone puts an inch or more of insulation between you and the ground. When there is rain or excessive condensation the pad keeps you sleeping bag out of the water. When the ground is hard and rocks the pad can provide an awesome cusion.

Below and in the video I do a quick comparison to several other sleeping pads. In general, inflatable pads are more comfortable and provide better protection. They also tend to compress down well and weight less. Unfortunately they can also be compressed by an elbow and hip or punctured by a sharp object. Foam pads are more reliable but in general are more bulky, heavy and less comfortable. The OZone sort of straddles the two by providing a minimalist layer of inflatable comfort wit ha nice attached pillow.

The OZone seems best suited to weekend backpacking or longer backpacks where rain or below 40 degree weather is rare. Considering the fact that this pad rolls up to the size of a 1L bottle, includes a nice pillow and weights so little... it's pretty amazing. I sleep on my stomach most of the time and I noticed that it is very comfortable on my back and stomach and less so on my sides where I could occasionally feel the ground. Overall this is an excellent pad for many applications, especially the ultralight backpackers.

[RATING 1-10, 10 is BEST]
Comfort = 7
Thermal Protection = 6
Rain Protection = 5

1.0 out of 5 stars WARNING SR24UB Design Change - No Perforated Sides, July 1, 2015
The SR24UB does NOT come with vented sides like in the picture when this was purchased. The TRIPP LITE site itself said "Lockable/Removable Side Panels (Perforated). [see my pic] They changed the design to SOLID SIDES and kept the same model number. They should at least make note in the description of the changes. I'm a bit ticked since this will impact cooling significantly. We went with this model over the Dell 24U due to weight and cooling concerns.

5.0 out of 5 stars Goofy Fun and Thought Proviking, June 20, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I don't read short stores very often . I usually stick to long series and long novels. But the description on this promised a eclectic collection of aci fi so I picked it up. The book was a great read but the author also has a gift for making the goofy seem rational and sometimes thought provoking.

I picked this up to mount on my bike. Nor sure what I was expecting but this didn't work all that well. Was way too nervous to trust myv$690 phone.
