          This is a nice solid well built jacket with the build quality you would expect from Milwaukee. I personally like the colors and the look. I normally wear an XL and the XL fits me perfectly. So the sizes run true to what you normally see. I like the variety of pockets. The use of Velcro instead of snaps just makes things easier to get on and off quick especially if you are wearing gloves. The hood is a rather generous size and pretty much comes down over my face if I’m not wearing a hat where the bill of the hat will hold it out of my face. But I typically wear a hat when I’m wearing a raincoat anyway just for the purpose of keeping the hood out of my face. So that does not bother me. I’d Read More

          The Smartech JSL-950 Vehicle Jump Starter/Power Bank with Accessories can instantly jump start most single battery vehicles up to 20 times on a single charge. With built-in AC and DC charging ports, the JSL-950 is capable of powering standard 120-Volt household appliances and 12-Volt accessories like travel stoves or automotive accessories. Using its dual USB charging outputs, the JSL-950 can also be used to charge any 5-Volt USB rechargeable devices! Safety features include low voltage protection (for the product itself), spark proof, reverse polarity protection, and short circuit protection. The JSL-950 comes complete with an automotive jump starter, capable of jumping most automotive passenger vehicles. Using an impressive 950 crank amps of power, the JSL-950 can even jump trucks and passenger vans. Located on the rear of the portable power station is a 150 psi air compressor, fully capable of filling the tires on any passenger vehicle and most commercial vehicles, as long as the tire is rated at 150 PSI or below. With an air pressure gauge clearly visible on the back, you will always know exactly how much pressure is in your tire. Included below the carrying handle is an integrated ultra-bright flashlight to ensure that you have light no matter what situation you find yourself in.

          This is a pretty versatile little unit. I have a similar unit I got specifically to power my GPS guided telescope when I don’t have A/C available for it. (the drive unit and dew shield both run off 12V power) This will do everything the Celestron will and a good deal more like jump start a car or air up a tire. This also has a built in inverter which could be very handy for powering things like the laptop I use for astrophotography. I can tell by all these things and the additional heft it has that I can expect more than I can from the power tank. About the only thing better on the powertank is the spot light.

The light one this one is bright but not like the spotlight on the Celestron. But that light on the Celestron drains the battery fast too. But to be honest the last thing you want on when you are viewing the sky is a really bright spot light. Both units do their job well. This one just does more jobs. So price wise this compares very favorably with the power tank while giving you more for the money by taking on more tasks. So if you want something for emergencies to jump off a car or air up a tire or just want a portable way to power your electronics this thing has all those bases covered. It’s a pretty neat device.

          We took these and cut them in half and used them as a border at the bottom like a base and at the top of the wall like a trim with something else around the middle. I was skeptical but this was my wifes's design and I just followed her lead. In the end it turned out nice. The little splash of metallic color this gives is a nice addition.

          Frankly I was skeptical about how these would look in a small bathroom. But I let my wife take the reins on room design and trusted her instincts. And in the end it looks good. We used this on the floor and the wall of a small guest bathroom. We are both very please with the look. We mixed in some other stuff on the walls but this matched it all well.

          Pair this 32 in. Pre-Lit Laurel Villa Artificial Wreath with matching pieces to create a holiday oasis. It includes a timer function that allows you to place the wreath in hard-to-reach areas without having to turn it on every evening. The wreath is pre-decorated with gold ornaments, gold berries and red berries. It is also wrapped in 35 warm white LED lights for a soft glow.

My wife is the more critical one of these sorts of things because she was a florist and she’s pleased with it too. So that says a lot. I have a number of wreaths on the house at Christmas including a big 5 foot one with 100 C9’s woven into it and no other decorations on it. This one will go well with my display (probably on my kitchen window). This will be a static element in a display of a bit over 50,000 lights sync’d to music. You don’t want everything flashing on and off all the time. I was not able to put lights out last year due to an injury but this year I’m back and adding a lot of new elements. I’m ready to see how this and my other new additions weave into the display. If it was not 96 degrees I’d start putting things out now.

          Does it come in other sizes ? I've been using the 12 inch one for about 6 months now and am very happy with the way it cooks and how well it is holding up to practically daily use. I would not mind buying a couple smaller ones as well like say a 10 inch and an 8 inch.
           
          The Storehouse mailbox can easily be called a powerhouse when it comes to storing large volumes of mail. This extra-large mailbox was designed to fit the newest USPS Standard 7C regulation, and is generously sized to meet the increase of large parcel deliveries. Large boxes will no longer be left conspicuously at your door for potential damage or vandalism. The Storehouse has a wide mail delivery opening measuring 7.24 in. tall x 13.44 in. wide to easily accept multiple parcel box deliveries along with daily mail. In addition to its impressive storage capacity, this mailbox is constructed from heavy-duty gauge galvanized steel and protected with a powder-coat finish for lasting durability against rust, and impacts. The Storehouse also comes fully assembled with pre-drilled bottom mounting holes. Mounting hardware is sold separately. Color: Black.

          I don't really have much of a question just an amusing observation to pass along and since you can't modify reviews here it is.
          I put this up a week ago and it is indeed really nice - large, solid, well finished and easy to open and close. Piece of cake to mount.
          Today I had a post-it note left in the box with the days mail from the mail carrier lady. It said she loves this box !
          It was kind of funny to see and I'm glad she likes it too. Obviously she appreciates a smooth opening and closing box.
          I guess if you have to open and close them all day that would not go unnoticed. some certainly require more effort.

          To make this a question and thus kosher to put here I ask the populace...
          Has anyone else had a compliment from the mail carrier ?
          I'm just curious.
