"I car camp and this headlamp makes it easy to use the toilet without juggling a flashlight," wrote a happy camper. "I use the red lamp to read a star chart without ruining my night vision. The green lamp is bright enough to read a book by without attracting insects. And I use the white lamp when cooking. The battery lasts a good long while. I like the emergency beacon and whistle, too. I loop the head strap through my waist pack when hiking as an extra security precaution. Highly recommend. The park ranger at my favorite park is even going to order one!"
"I like the fact that this staple gun works with multiple different staples!" a satisfied customer shared. I purchased this to use around the house for light duty. However with the many different types of staples, you could use this gun for a variety of jobs!"
"Best utility knife I've had," a happy DIYer wrote. "I bought one, and soon after my wife demanded I buy a second one, and my father-in-law asked for one for Christmas. I'm not even joking. The shape feels nice in my hand, it's sturdy, it's easy to extend and retract the blade, it's easy to replace the blades. What more could I want? I use it for cutting drywall, deconstructing cardboard boxes, and miscellaneous odd tasks that call for a sharp object."
"I'm a professional locksmith, and this is easily the best drill I've had," wrote a rave reviewer. "I wasn't expecting this great of a tool for this price. It has a gear reduction, so it has way more torque when you need it, and higher drilling speed when that is what you need. It doesn't have a big, flat battery, so you can't stand it up - that is the ONLY thing that could be improved!"
