    Good as a bandana

    posted by mhiron on 01/17/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The material feels nice, slightly stretchy and is absorbent. I purchased this as an easy pull-on bandana. Usually I considered such headwear for cold weather, but since its been 40'C here lately, I have found it amazing for both keeping sweat from running d...
    Cons:
    None. Its a tube of colourfast stretchy cloth, so simple enough.

    Cool multi-function pipe

    posted by mhiron on 01/17/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This weighty pipe is of a good size. It feels solid and has an alright draw. The lighter's nozzle can swivel up/down (though you'll probably keep it pointing down into the bowl anyway). Comes with a mesh circle for the bowl. The bowl is quite large.
    Cons:
    It would have been nice to have a somewhat flatter underside to be able to place it standing upright. The lighter also only til...

    Comfy cool-weather hat

    posted by mhiron on 01/17/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A simple pull-on beanie/hat for cool weather, with sides that dip down far enough to cover your ears.
    Cons:
    Obviously copied from another clothing brand, if you can overlook the misspell in the emblem, it seems as well made as the (ove...

    Neat little case

    posted by mhiron on 01/17/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a neat and well-made little case. The zipper is sturdy, and both the outer material and inner lining is strong. It has an interesting feature I don't see on other zippered cases, which is that it is made with a neat internal hem that sticks out a li...
    Cons:
    None. It is as advertised.

    Well made retractable cable

    posted by mhiron on 01/17/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The construction of this item seems way ahead of the usual plastic devices you get, but it has a price to match. Still, its half the price of a similar item I'd get locally. The cable feels very sturdy, and the retracting mechanism works with little fuss.
    Cons:
    The retracting mechanism is the ratcheting type where you need to pull a little more cable out before it'll let it wind all bac...

    Handy retractable microusb charger

    posted by mhiron on 01/17/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a simple and effective little micro-usb car charger for your phone/gps whatever has the right socket. It works well, the retracting mechanism is sturdy enough and overall it does the job. The retracting is whip-fast via a small button on the back of...
    Cons:
    None really for what its designed for. It's not going to last for ever being plastic and retractable. I don't exactly treat the...

    Great glowing ball toy for fun and pets!

    posted by mhiron on 08/31/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This glowing ball is a great toy if you like playing fetch with your dog during dim/dark times of the day and night. In complete darkness it is a very cool effect to see just this ball hovering back to you. The product seems to be genuine nite-ize, and sin...
    Cons:
    No real cons to speak of. The switch to turn the light on/off can be hard to toggle with one hand, but its meant to be that wa...

    Good small water pipe

    posted by mhiron on 12/04/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Its just the right size for a 'small' water pipe. Easy to disassemble to clean. Comes with spare o-rings. I quite like it, all-in-all.
    Cons:
    I needed to modify it a little bit for ease of use: The clear plastic plug-thing that goes between the reservoir's 'hood' and...

    Nice little keychain light

    posted by mhiron on 11/30/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The transparent heart section comes apart (with a bit of prying) to let you put in a slip of paper with your pet's name and your phone number etc. It looks fine as a normal collar attachment when its not turned on, and seems well-made enough that it is no...
    Cons:
    I would have liked to be able to select the colour or flashing mode with multiple presses of the switch but as it is it just co...

    Silly crude fun

    posted by mhiron on 11/22/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    I bought this for a bit of crude humour to sit on my car's dash and shake away at people. It does its job well as I'm driving or when the car is sitting in a parking lot. I can just imagine the look on people's faces as they walk by.
    Cons:
    How can there be a con to a battery-free tit-shaking toy? There really are no cons relating to its proper usage. Its a cheap p...
