    Very good waterproof gloves, but beware the size!

    posted by thierrius on 01/13/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Very good and detailed manufacturing, well worth the price. These gloves are made in 3 layers: outershell (what you see), waterproof glove-shaped film (goretex-like), inner warm lining. If the size is right (see cons), this is an excellent pair of gloves fo...
    Cons:
    Size-size-size. Beware! I first ordered a pair of L-sized gloves, but gave them to my wife. Then I ordered this XL-size pair, b...

    Cheap & useful bikelight/flashlight

    posted by thierrius on 01/12/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Even though it's really cheap, the set as a whole is VERY useful. Installation is very easy, didn't need a screwdriver for installing the headlight set. The headlight can change between high and low mode, where I use the high mode for maximum visibility i...
    Cons:
    The backlight is obviously of a different quality. The backlight has 7 (SEVEN!!) modes to flip through, before you can turn it ...

    Great price, but had a leaker.

    posted by thierrius on 12/12/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - cheap, you won't find a 5-pack for this money in the Netherlands. Packaging is great, no loose plastic or anything. Cardboard is cut for easy retrieval of battery and to tear of a single battery while still in the package.
    Cons:
    One battery is obviously leaking within the blister (see photo), I'm not going to use it, nor complain about it. I still got th...

    great value for that price!

    posted by thierrius on 12/12/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - 10 (TEN!!) lasers for an incredible low price, I feel like a thief ;) - all lasers seem focused by hand and glued in place ( I think it would be possible to re-focus them if you really want to, although I don't recommend it.) - great for Arduino or DYI pr...
    Cons:
    - packaging could have been more careful, I had a lot of different items and all where crammed in a bubble envelop, didn't affe...

    Excellent 5-pack of batteries

    posted by thierrius on 12/05/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - cheap, way cheaper than here in the Netherlands - well-packaged. No plastic coming off or other shortcomings in packaging. There's even a cut in the cardboard for easy retrieval of every battery. A perfect blister ;) - ribbed topside, I think this makes c...
    Cons:
    - there's a date stamped on the backside, since my chinese ain't all that, there's no telling if that is the manufacturing date...

    Pros:
    - Cheap enough - contains a waterproof membrane. - manufactured with an eye for quality here. - very good fit (IF right size! see cons) - came in a quality ziplockbag, handy for storage! Obviously made with driving a motorcycle in mind, this pair of glove...
