    Very nice flask

    posted by desertdawg57 on 08/04/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    I love the look of it, the feel of it in my hand and pocket, its heft is very noticeable. The stainless construction id good; the tiny funnel is very handy and useful and the lid seal is very good; no leakages. Haven't measured the capacity but have no reas...
    Cons:
    None that I can see or could find. Whether the lid seal hold up to time and use still remains to be seen. Other than that I don...

    Great gift item

    posted by desertdawg57 on 08/04/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    I bought this as a present for a photographer friend and he says it looks so real sitting in one compartment of his camera bag that another friend thought he had purchased a new lens for his collection. By the way, my friend is also a keen coffee and tea dr...
    Cons:
    Perhaps the only drawback I found was the drinking edge has a groove which might make it a little dicey to drink out of. Other ...

    Very Nice little fan/light

    posted by desertdawg57 on 05/31/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    This a replacement for an earlier ordered fan that was completely destroyed in transit. The seller immediately replaced it, no-questions-asked! Very impressive! The fan will perform flawlessly, I'm sure, since the seller has full confidence in his product t...
    Cons:
    Can't see any cons in the product, with the exception of perhaps flimsy packing, which was taken care of in the replacement. AN...

    Great little flashlight

    posted by desertdawg57 on 05/28/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    I'm a flashlight collector and I have about 2 dozen different kinds. This is one of my favorite ones; why? 1) Very handy size 2) Good build quality 3) Superb performance 4) Always clipped to my gear. 5) Weight feels good in my hand
    Cons:
    Not 910 Lms, by far, but still plenty bright. Zoom slide catches slightly sometimes, but easily ignored due to its other good q...

    Light weight carabiners

    posted by desertdawg57 on 05/28/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Very light, fairly strong and extremely useful carabiners. Very handy around camp; I even use them in the house, in my den, my rec room; anywhere I need to attach, hang, tie, tote or hook up, these are the ones that I reach for. Would be lost without them.
    Cons:
    Slightly flimsy build; but then they're plastic! Springs might fail at some point but I'm not overly concerned about it.

    Very handy for meds

    posted by desertdawg57 on 05/28/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Since I'm hypertensive and a borderline diabetic, I cannot afford to miss my medication even for a day. These pill boxes make sure I don't. At the start of every week I fill these with my daily meds and enjoy the convinience all week without missing a day.
    Cons:
    None, except perhaps that they're plastic and will probably wear out, but I'm not bothered; I'll just order more!

    Very good camera mount

    posted by desertdawg57 on 05/28/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    This is a very good camera mount. Sticks well to glass with almost zero camera shake, probably due to the short sturdy mount arm. I have had no issues with it...so far. It does everything its supposed to, and does it well. Very good build quality.
    Cons:
    None, so far. If I find any over during extended use, I wouldn't mind since I would've already more than gotten my money's worth.

    Great Little Gadget

    posted by desertdawg57 on 05/28/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Very handy size, great utility, light weight. Easy to attach to rucksack and take along on trips and hikes. Works in mildly windy conditions too. Not completely water proof; water resistant perhaps. Good sturdy build and reasonabe finish. Stainless steel sh...
    Cons:
    Only one; the rubber seal on the matchstick is a bit flimsy and doesn't fit well resulting in Zippo fuel evaporation. Rest is a...

    Great for Search and Rescue

    posted by desertdawg57 on 03/05/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Great Falshlight. Nice heft. Extremely bright, though NOT 8000 Lumens as printed on the head. Nice touch with extra O-rings and adapter tubes for use with 18650 batteries.
    Cons:
    Mediocre nylon pouch; uses expensive 26650 batteries, which you must buy for greater amperage. Could be less expensive.

    Nice looking headlamp

    posted by desertdawg57 on 03/05/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Good looking head lamp, reasonably bright. Excellent for "hands-free" work. Click-stop angles help focus light at job in hand.
    Cons:
    Not as bright as some of the other brands I've bought from DX.com. A little heavier than most others, battery boy at back of he...
