Hanes Men's Boxer Pack with Elastic Waistband
Hanes Men's Boxer Pack with Elastic Waistband
Price: $13.26 - $34.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Elastic waistband good, exposed waistband version terrible., June 24, 2016
These are good, lasted me a couple or three years. Then I bought the exposed waistband version. AWFUL! The waistband rolled over and the elastic was done in a few months, probably couldn't stand up to a dryer.

Again, buy these and not the fashionista terrible ones that look good, but are form over function and aren't even suited for charity as they are too awful for even the most needy living in the worst place on earth.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Got the stainless inner part clean even though it was a few years old and never formally cleaned before. Left a little powdery residue, but it was run on a short cycle and after the next wash it is all like new. Worth using, but the ingredients were not listed. Don't know the price as it was a vine product. A solid 4.6.

5.0 out of 5 stars Be reasonably moist, May 28, 2016

Way better than the girly stuff I have used. Goes on easily, disappears right away, no oily feel or other residue. Goes a long way, lasts a long time. Nice and cool going on, then you forget about it. I think the Cremo people know what they are doing as their shaving cream is excellent as well. I think wimmins would like this despite it not being an overpriced boutique item promoted by celebrity doctors and celebrity celebrities.

5.0 out of 5 stars No volt envy, less laziness., May 28, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Solidly made, not light, not cheap, and now a companion to the previously purchased GreenWorks string trimmer whose battery and charger it now shares. It works as well, better really, than the previous plug-in blower and of course there is that cordless freedom. In fact, I still haven't adjusted to the fact that there is no cord and I keep worrying about stepping on it or snagging it on something. Then I realize there is no cord and that is indeed satisfying.

As with the trimmer, I find I use it more often, not getting lazy because I don't want to drag out the extension cords or fool with gas.

The low speed clears normal dry leaves off of concrete with surprising ease and the high speeds will pretty much scatter anything. The wild turkeys around here dig up rocks and dirt, messing up the walkways. The higher speed settings easily blows this off.

The slow start is a bit odd, but doesn't really bother me. I have some Bosch tools that have a soft start as well and am used to it.

Time of operation is totally dependent on what you are doing, but it easily lasts through a typical deck, walkway and driveway project even if they are in need of a lot of cleaning.

80 volts is a lot and adequate for most anything, and the chargers are fast. That makes this a good long term purchase for me. Of course having multiple tools using the same battery and charger does make the purchase more practical.

2.0 out of 5 stars Your size may vary, May 28, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very nice material, soft and all. Washes and dries easily. I liked the color. The price is good. But, in the queen size at least, it is too big. It does not stay tight as there is a lot of slop between the corners of the sheet and the corners of the mattress.

Other fitted sheets have done well on this mattress, so it is this particular one that is not right.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality tool for the job, May 8, 2016
I don't think this basic design could get a whole lot better. Very well made in China and it works. Lots better for me than the fingernail clipper design devices I have used before. The return spring is nice and useful. People with bending problems might want to get clippers with long handles.

These would probably make superior wire cutters

4.0 out of 5 stars Prevent poor putting preemptively, May 8, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Long enough to be interesting. Ball returns all the way most of the time on a hard floor. It has a ramp to there is some altitude for the gravity ball return. Sometimes gets stuck in the cup as there is a little lip inside there that sometimes catches the ball. I raised the cup a hair and now it is fine. Perhaps too easy to make putts as you can line up your putter using the lines. The ramp makes hitting from the edges unrealistic as it sends the ball off at a different angle. It lays pretty flat, and gets very flat if you leave it out. I wonder about ironing it when you first unbox it as that is the time when you have the most creases.

It is good to be able to practice hitting your putter where you should, getting your swing down and besides it makes for interesting living room decor in the eclectically furnished house, or wherever it is banished to.

It seems to be heavy duty and well made, has a fan just like a Tesla charger (they say) and plenty of lights to indicate the level of charging. It does its work in half an hour.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gas trimmer for sale., April 6, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A big surprisingly industrial sort of trimmer for professional landscapers and homeowners with big lots. There are no issues with its weed eating abilities, the string bumps out reliably and much better than on my good quality gas trimmer. I also found that the guard, although rather small, protected me well from flying debris and gravel, again better than my gas unit that has a huge guard. It does not vibrate much and is quiet.

I did about eight hundred square feet of mostly difficult green weeds on one charge.

Note that I have found that round replacement string is better at feeding out than the serrated type supplied with this unit. Still, there were no issues.

It is heavy and seems to be very capable. I will eventually buy the GreenWorks blower that uses the same battery/charger.

There is an expensive 4.0 AH battery, and even more capable ones coming later, all quite expensive. Maybe worth it for commercial or very extensive use far away from a charger. Anything is better than going out to buy gas and two stroke oil, starting it and then running it dry after every use. I do that and my gas trimmer always starts right up, but it is a pain. And two-strokes are noisy and annoying. I am happy to be reasonably quiet doing my work. Commercial users might also get some props from their clients.

I am fairly tall and did not like the need to bend down to get the string horizontal to the ground. The strap helped some, but some sort of angled shaft or an extension would make this much better for taller people. This cost it a star.

Still, there is no longer a need for gas units and hopefully they will fade away from our lives. The two-stroke age can't end fast enough. This is so capable that I would advise most people to go the 80v route as there are few reasons not to these days.

BTW, I scoured the owner's manual and their web site and there were no warnings about leaving the battery in the charger past the half-hour full charge time. There was some discussion regarding this, but it seems to be an unfounded fear. Note that the charger is itself a quality unit, quite heavy and even has a fan to cool things down. It will hopefully last a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Allows for screwing around (things)., April 6, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Well made and worked to put a large screw into wood while at full curvature, using an impact drill. There are obviously going to be limits to what a device like this can do, but it should suffice for most tasks. It is good to have one of these around for those oddball fastening jobs.
