5.0 out of 5 stars Great tasting honey flakes from a great company, Sept. 13 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great tasting honey flakes that don't get soggy quickly in milk. This is yet another great product from Nature's Path. I often mix these flakes with granola type cereals for a hearty, great tasting breakfast.

Please not that you get 6 bags of 750g each inside this case.

I highly recommend these cereals.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sharkk 2O Waterproof Speaker / haut-parleur imperméable, Sept. 13 2015
For this review, I made a side by side comparison between the Sharkk Portable Boombox Speaker I purchased at the beginning of this year and the new Sharkk 2O Bluetooth Waterproof Speaker.

In the box of the Sharkk 2O Bluetooth Waterproof Speaker, you get a wall charger, a 1/8" male to 1/8" male auxiliary audio cable, an instruction booklet and a carry bag.

What makes the 2O Waterproof speaker different :
- It is waterproof with an IP67 rating which means it can be completely immersed in water up to one meter (or 3 feet) of water.
- Made of quality materials.
- Has a micro SD card slot.
- Has a phone button.

What I like :
- It's waterproof and can be used near a pool or hot tub without worrying of damaging the speaker.
- The rubber all around helps absorb vibrations when playing music.
- The 9 buttons respond well.
- Allows you to play music right off a micro SD card filled with your favorite music.
- The Phone button allows you to receive and answer calls via the speaker since the music is automatically overridden.
- The small orange LEDs that indicate the energy level left in the battery.
- The audio confirmations when the speaker powers on, off and when it's connected via Bluetooth.
- Great sound coming from a relatively small box with two 1.5" (approx.) speakers that produce 8 watts of sound with a frequency response of 60Hz to 20KHz. Do not expect deep base from these small speakers but you do get great highs and mids.
- The automatic power off option when not in use helps prolong the battery power.

What could be better :
- In Bluetooth mode, there is a 1 or so second delay in the response when pressing the Pause, Play, Next and Previous buttons.
- When compairing the Sharkk Portable Boombox speaker sound quality with the new Sharkk 2O Bluetooth Waterproof speaker, I find the Boombox has slightly crisper cleaner sound than on the 2O.  The 2O sound appears a bit muffled.  This is probably to be expected since the 2O is waterproof.  Dispite this, the 2O still sounds really great.
- When you reach the maximum volume (when pressing the V+ button), a beep sound is heard and the music is cut for about 2 seconds.  On the Boombox the sound isn't cut off ' only a weak beep is heard.  I wish the 2O didn't cut the sound as I personnally find this annoying.

Please note that, even if I was provided with a free item for testing purposes, I gave you my fair and honest evaluation so that anyone looking at purchasing this item is aware of the pros and cons I encountered while using this Sharkk 2O Bluetooth Waterproof speaker.

All things considered, I believe the pros greatly outweight the cons. That is why I highly recommend this 2O Waterproof speaker especially if you want to enjoy good music near a pool, hot tub, bath tub, etc. For it's size, features and price, you can't get any better sounding waterproof speaker.

*********************************
Pour cet évaluation, j'ai comparé le haut-parleur Sharkk Portable Boombox que j'ai acheté au début de cette année contre le nouveau haut-parleur imperméable Sharkk 2O Bluetooth.

Dans la boîte du haut-parleur imperméable Sharkk 2O Bluetooth, vous obtenez un chargeur murale, un câble audio auxiliaire 1/8" mâle à 1/8" mâle, un manuel d'instruction (en anglais seulement) et un sac de transport.

Les caractéristiques qui différencie le haut-parleur imperméable 2O :
- Il est imperméable avec un classement IP67 qui veux dire qu'il peut être complètement immergé dans jusqu'à un mètre (ou 3 pieds) d'eau.
- La qualité du produit qui est bien construit et robuste.
- Contient une fente micro SD.
- Contient un bouton Téléphone.

Les points forts :
- Puisqu'il est imperméable, il peut être utilisé près d'une piscine sans craindre d'endommager le haut-parleur.
- Le caoutchouc au tour aide à absorber les vibrations.
- Les 9 boutons répondent bien.
- Permet de jouer vos chansons à partir d'une carte micro SD remplit de vos chansons favorites.
- Le bouton Téléphone vous permet de répondre à un appel téléphonique avec ce haut-parleur car la musique est substituée automatiquement par l'appel.
- Les petits DELs orange indiquent le niveau d'énergie qui reste dans la batterie.
- Les confirmations audio lorsque le haut-parleur est allumé, éteint et lorsque la connexion Bluetooth s'active.
- Le son des aigus et médiums est assez bien reproduit pour un si petit boîtier avec deux haut-parleurs d'environs 1.5" qui produisent 8 watts de son avec une bande passante de 60Hz à 20KHz. Ne vous attendez pas à beaucoup de base avec ce haut-parleurs.
- Le haut parleur s'éteint automatiquement lorsqu'il n'est pas utilisé. Ceci aide à prolonger l'énergie de la batterie.

Points moins appréciés :
- En mode Bluetooth, il y a un délais d'environs une seconde lorsqu'on appuie sur les boutons Pause, Lecture, Suivant et Précédent.
- Si je compare le son de mon haut-parleur Sharkk Portable Boombox avec le haut-parleur imperméable Sharkk 2O, je trouve que le son du Boombox est plus claire que dans le 2O.  Le 2O semble avoir un son légèrement étouffé.  Ceci est probablement normale pour un haut-parleur imperméable.  Malgré ça, le son du 2O est très bien.
- Lorsqu'on le volume arrive au maximum (en appuyant sur le bouton V+), nous entendons un bip et la musique est coupé pendant environs deux secondes.  Cette coupure de son n'existe pas dans le Boombox.  J'aurais préféré si le 2O n'avait pas cette coupure comme dans le Boombox car je trouve ça agaçant.

Veuillez prendre note que, même si on m'a fourni un échantillon pour évaluation, j'ai fourni une évaluation honnête afin que tous ceux qui songent à se procurer ce haut-parleur puissent être au courrants des côtés positifs et négatifs que j'ai trouvé en utilisant le haut-parleur imperméable Sharkk 2O Bluetooth.

En considérant le tout, je suis convaincu que les points positifs dépassent les quelques points négatifs. Ces pour cette raison que je recommande fortement le haut-parleur 2O Bluetooth surtout si vous songez écouter de la musique près d'une piscine, un spas, etc. Pour sa taille, ses caractéristiques et son prix, vous ne trouverez pas un meilleur haut-parleur imperméable avec un si bon son.

This bike water bottle holder was easy to install on the bike and holds the water bottle very well. In the long run, i'm not 100% certain if the back plate will continue to hold the rest of the holder. For the price, it is a great buy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Only for thin phones and GPS, Aug. 4 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This Clip-Grip handlebar bike mount is perfect for smart phones and thin GPS units ONLY. If you own a thicker GPS like the Garmin Oregon, the side grips don't hold anything and the unit will only be held by the elastic. The elastic so far has held the different units I own. I hope, in the long run, the elastic will last.

This review is from: Kashi Go Lean Cereal (Grocery)
Another excellent Go Lean cereal. For breakfast, I mostly eat hot or cold cereal. The Go Lean products as amongst my favorite. They may be a little more expensive than other cereals but the only contain natural ingredients without added sugar. If you are looking after your health and want a healthy cereal, I highly recommend the Go Lean cereals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made, large pockets and easy to install, Aug. 4 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This 3M bike bag is well made and very easy to install. I especially like that it only takes a few minutes to install and can easily be uninstalled as quickly. You can even carry this double bag with you since there is a handle at the top. Each side has one large pocket and a smaller outside pocked ... both are zippered. The larger side pockets are big enough to carry several water bottles and even a child's lunch box. I highly recommend this bike bag even if it's a little more expensive than other brands.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent alternative to carrying D size batteries, June 29 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These D size adapters work relatively well in most electronic equipement. To use it properly, make sure you get a good contact with the positive and the negative contacts on the cell.

We especially appreciate that we no longer need to carry different size batteries.

My only concern is that, after months of use, the plastic may break at the hinge and we will need to keep it together with tape.
