Good look Polarizing
CONS
Lens are as thin as paper Don't seem robust in any way
I received those glasses a few days ago. They look very good (if you like that style) and do cut off horizontal reflections with polarized glasses. Tint is very neutral and quite clear. I'm not sure they do protect much from harsh sunlight. However, and as most of the time, you get what you pay for. They do not look very robust and the glasses are as thin as paper...

Nice look. Two parts you can mix and match with other hybrids Soft on the lips
CONS
Only one oring so it does not stand very still
Very nice hybrid drip tip. I like the look. I also like the top part that's soft on my lips. It can be taken apart and mixed with other hybrids. The only con is it only has one oring instead of two, so it does not stand very tight on the atomizer, but it's not a big issue.

Just the right size for EDC Wood scales Very decent blade Good build and finish One hand operation
CONS
Pocket clip too stiff
I've been carrying this little pocket knife for a year now. I fits comfortably in my right jean pocket. Use it to open mail or packages, cut my meat at the restaurant and other utility things. Now i got used to it i wonder how i could have lived without it in my pocket - the police may have a different take on it though... I would certainly buy an other. Very good value pocket knife.

Rather bright for a solar light Aluminum projector casing Uses a 18650 LiIon cell
CONS
Different attachments for solar panel and projector Only one mode (no brightness level) Not that cheap Minimal electronics Noy sure about any low voltage cut-off
I've been using two of those solar projectors outside for more then six month (winter and spring mainly) and they are still performing. When night comes they do provide a good amount of light for part of the night. Now that spring solstice is approaching they last all night after a nice sunny day. I use them to light shrubs, trees and stone walls. Although not near as bright as an halogen light, they do a decent job - at least it is not total darkness. One thing that is odd is the solar panel and the led projector don't seem to belong together. The former has a plastic casing and a picket you can stick in a lawn, the later has a metal casing and has to be screwed onto a wall or something... i just let it lay beside the panel, in the grass or on a wall. Not the best setup for sure. I opened one of the solar panel that contains the electronics and the battery. The good news is it uses a plain LiIon 18650, so it should be easy to replace it for a better cell. However the electronic part is very minimalist and fits on a postage stamp size PCB. There is only one on/off button and no mode/brightness level selection as i've seen on other similar solar projectors. Another odd thing is during this winter, one of the projector would turn off much earlier then the other, when it was still bright. Now that days are longer, they seem to act the same... However, i'm wondering how far they discharge the battery before turning off. They seem to run it down pretty low, but i haven't checked. Overall and despite the above mentioned shortcomings, i'm pretty happy with them so far. I don't expect this kind of solar lights to last forever and i'm prepared to renew them after a couple years. If they last longer then great. But in the mean time other lights will have come up. This is a rather new and evolving field. I'll probably order a few more.

Tiny Nice shape and design Light weight
CONS
Plastic body and scales
Surprisingly small folding knife. Seems sharp out of the box. Very easy to fit in a pocket or hand bag. Only con is the body which is non existent - the plastic scales are the body. However it makes it light too. I would recommend this mini blade and will probably get a few others.
