5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stem Great Price, June 25, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Excellent seat stem for a casual rider. Good quality. Love the double screws for the seat. These things are frequently very expensive. This one is proof they don't have to be.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Value for Replacement Spout, June 25, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Love this thing. Priced right. Quality finish. The front-side stopper is a dream. The water exits the spout in a somewhat chaotic manner. But if your needs are pretty basic then consider this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent Seat That Is Useless in Some Canoes, June 25, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a well made seat and there probably isn't one that's of higher quality. That said, it was useless to me in the rear of a 16' Wenonah Canoe that I took for a week into the Boundary Waters in MN. The taper of the stern meant that the SitBacker could not fit completely on the canoe seat...it was difficult to position it so that I could even get the seat-back in an upright position. Some minor design changes could have accounted for this common issue...not sure why the manufacturer ignored it. A couple other annoyances were to be found. One was the "portage lock" which was a good idea but in practice was poorly implemented. It rarely stayed locked on a long portage. Also, when entering the canoe, there was no good way to keep the seat-back upright while I pushed off from shore and got settled in. Particularly frustrating on days when winds were high and you had to get underway quickly from shore. This thing would work fine in the front of a canoe. It would also make a fine stadium seat. In the end this was a mediocre piece of equipment for my needs that did not perform to my expectations. In other situations it might be great. Just not mine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Size for DSLR with Vacation Telephoto or Prime Lens, May 31, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I wanted something simple and inexpensive that would protect my DSLR from potential water spray while on a boat trip. This thing delivered. I wish the manufacturer would do a better job describing dimensions. I bought both the Original and the Small. I had no problem using the 'Small' on my Sony A77 with both my 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 telephoto lens and my 16-50mm f/2.8 prime lens. This protector has plenty of room for a full DSLR body, even if you have a battery grip attached. Then, there is 12" of distance between the back of the protector and the hole at the end where the lends peeks out. So, assemble your camera, extend your lens to the fullest. Measure the longest distance (from the backside of the body to front of the lens). If it's within 12" you're good to go. If it's longer (and this means you're doing some serious telephoto work) you'll want something bigger. For most folks with consumer/prosumer equipment this is the one for you. I did find that trying to view my shot with this thing on was a bit of a pain. The plastic is mostly transparent, but not crystal clear (especially after its been crumpled after several uses). And making any setting adjustments, including zooming the lens, could be equally challenging. But assuming you can set and forget things for awhile, you should have no trouble protecting your camera without investing a small fortune for a custom shell.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Hooks for Hanging Clothes From the Cleaners, May 31, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I actually use these to hang clothes from the cleaners. The ceiling hooks in my car are fine for one or two hangers from the cleaners. But I needed a way to hang more than that, without doing anything too involved. These little doo-hickeys attach just fine from the ceiling hooks and I can easily get about a half dozen wire hangers on it. They also hook onto the seat rests as advertised.

3.0 out of 5 stars Best of the Limited Options Out There, May 31, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Overall it's fine. There aren't many options out there. It does the job. It is a bit on the large size but accommodates any kind of razor. 3 inches long. 2 inches wide. 1-1/2 inches thick. As you can see in the product pictures, the razor head sits in the middle of the protector. About 50% of the length of the protector sticks out beyond the razor head. Compact, it is not. The metal spring is somewhat weak. For something that's supposed to protect SHARP objects, I would have preferred something that inspires more confidence. Not a big deal - and a simple rubber band would solve it - but it could have easily been made better than that.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hole Size Much Smaller Than Described, January 20, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The hole size for the larger size is definitely overstated. It is definitely not 1/4". The internal mechanisms cut that nearly in half. If you're trying to, say, pass 1/4" drawstring cord through it, this will not work for you.

Works perfectly and I like it better than the hard plastic dispensers. No more worries about it cracking in cold winter months, either!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Grinder for Vacation or Home!, November 23, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a great grinder. I bought it to go on a long vacation with me along with my AeroPress. It was easy to adjust and gave a perfectly consistent grind. I didn't have any problem with the handle staying on. That said, I do wish all of these companies would come up with a more refined mechanism for attaching it. But it was completely usable. In terms of size, it isn't the smallest grinder out there but I actually appreciated having something of this size. Easier to grip and enough room for enough grinds for a mug of strong coffee. If you want a great grinder that is portable (and/or well-suited for home use) and will work flawlessly then consider this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Did The Trick - Eliminated Hard to Remove Odors From Synthetic Garments, September 27, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'll be darned, it worked. Took care of my stinky synthetic undergarments and leaves the wash smelling very fresh. I have even stopped using fabric softener since that seemed to be contributing to the issues. I use a scoop of this in every load, regardless of the types of garments. Defiintely worth the cost.
