I’m 5’6”, a 34D, and very active. I fail to understand why no company (at least that I’ve found so far) can make a bra for women with a large chest that works to hold everything in place while exercising. I found this bra was not much better than the regular “shelf bra” type that most companies make for sports type bras.

Pros:
#1 - It did help reduce bounce and held things in place better than any I’ve found so far.
#2 - The camisole keeps things from spilling out the top.

Cons:
#1 - I found the cup size ran slightly large, not small as most have stated.
#2 - I did not find the material to be “moisture wicking” as the company claims.
#3 - The lower edge of the band rolls up.
#4 - There is a stiff, scratchy piece on the ‘loop’ side of the hook/loop closure that rubs my back causing redness and irritation.
#5 - I can not adjust the straps as short as I’d like.
#6 - It is basically a “shelf bra” and everything runs together. At least with the camisole it’s not noticeable, but without keeping things better seperated it does nothing to help with controlling moisture. Something women with a large chest need to consider when the temperature is high and/or working out to prevent redness and irritation.

I bought a couple of these polos in different colors. They look good, and the material is cotton, and very comfortable. I ordered them in a medium size, which fit well before washing. They shrank a bit in the laundry, and are now a bit nore snug than I prefer. I probably would have bought a larger size if I’d known how much they would shrink.

Well I am simply surprised. I have 4-5 other netbook cases and this one is significantly better than all of them, for a lower price (a word on pricing later):

* The handles are the right thickness and “feel” - they aren’t just webbing that seems like an afterthought and feels uncomfortable, they appear to be made of a thinner Neoprene style material with stitching on the “grab” area to create a nicely-formed, nice-feeling, handle. At first I thought there was a “stiffener” inserted in the handle area to give it more shape and “grippability,” but apparently its just a good choice of materials and a well-executed design. You won’t need any additional handle wrapper to be comfortable!

- I have another zipper case with a handle but would never feel comfortable carrying it by the handle around town. The handle is too flimsy to be comfortable and I don’t trust the security of the construction/stitching. This AmazonBasics case is completely different. I feel like I can have my normal day back and carry this one by hand for quick and easy access on a commuter train or bus.

* The zipper, which runs only across the top and down each side about 2”, is robust-looking - it isn’t one of those “narrow gauge” flimsy looking zippers (technically, it is a “coil” not a “flat lock” design).

* As another reviewer mentioned, the zipper tabs are large enough to find and operate quickly and easily, and they are a “soft rubber” that feels good to the touch. One minor negative is the large “amazon basics” lettering on the zipper pull. Actually it is beginning to grow on me - yeah baby, I am too cheap (and too smart?) for Belkin or Built! (And got a better designed product.)

* There is NO zipper or “single stitch seam” at the bottom of the bag. Look carefully at some other designs. Make sure that when you send the bag down there is actual padding on the bottom of the bag so the netbook won’t “slam” down hard on the table top, floor, etc. Some bags are just Neoprene panels that are sewn together at the seams along the perimeter, and the stitching compresses the Neoprene at the perimeter so it can’t do its cushioning job.

- My netbook nestles between the “panel seams” (the bag has two flat side panels, then a perimeter panel to give it width, just like a “normal,” larger bag) and rests on normal thickness Neoprene.

* Because the zipper isn’t full length on the sides (you only need the zipper across the top, it is plenty wide, for getting the netbook in and out), there is less risk of failing to close the zipper completely and having the device slip out one end.

* The inside of this bag is ORANGE so you can easily make sure you haven’t left something inside.

* There is a zippered side-slot on the exterior of the bag which may, in fact, be large enough for a Nook as another reviewer noted. There is ample room for a typical power brick with cord, although that would pretty much ruin the appearance of the bag for carrying, but would be helpful for transiting security (if you have to remove power bricks as well as small computers).

- I checked this side-slot for use with both an external DVD player and with a couple of external hard drives. All fit with room to spare (well, not at the same time!).

- My preferred use for this side slot is to carry memory sticks and an older (3rd gen) iPod Touch. The Touch “boots up” much more quickly than a netbook for quick email and Facebook monitoring.

Recommended modifications/usage adjustments:

- I will put some orange duct tape on one handle so I can keep a better eye on this through airport security (although I try to put my computer bag under my shoes and jacket in the bin through security).

- If I end up not liking the Amazon zipper pulls, it is a simple job to cut them off and replace with lanyard style zipper pulls from REI or other sources. But I think I will keep the stock zipper pulls.

- I will probably find an extra microfiber cloth and roll it up length-wise and lay it down across the entire width of the bottom seam to add extra padding there. It’s always handy to have a microfiber cloth around anyway, for wiping the screen on the netbook (not required often) or for wiping my iPod Touch screen (required more often).

- I won’t store the power brick in the side slot. I don’t like the bulge, not for appearance reasons so much as because it creates a potential pressure point against the netbook side. I will store a DVD player or external hard drive if I decide to carry one (the DVD player is useful for playing DVD’s purchased on a trip, the external hard drive is useful if I am taking a low-capacity netbook in which I have installed an SSD - solid state drive - instead of a conventional hard drive).

- I probably won’t carry this around like a mini-attache. But the handles are almost indispensable in getting a secure grip on the case when inserting the case and netbook into my daily carry pack or into a laptop slot in carryon luggage. The greatest risk of damage is when we pull the case out of our other bag or put it back in, and handles GREATLY reduce the risk of slipping and dropping during those moments.

- During storage at home, I will separate the battery from the main unit so it doesn’t discharge, and the side slot is a perfect place to put it (diagonally).

A WORD ON PRICING: Amazon’s prices on EVERYTHING fluctuate like the commodities market. This nice piece is selling for 20% less than when I bought it just last week (10 vs 12). You need to compare prices to other netbook bags an other online and bricks and mortar dealers before you buy so you don’t get irate later! (At 12 bucks it was a bargain at 10 it’s a steal!)

We were counting down the seconds for this necklace to go on lightning deal. As soon as we refreshed the page, it was already sold out. Only after a minute. We were extremely disappointed, but I got on the waiting list without my gf knowing & got the necklace in a few seconds. Was an amazing surprise for her when she unwrapped her Christmas gift early.

The look of this bag really appealed to me it is a really sharp looking bag. Functionality wise, I think they could have made some improvements without effecting the cost very much.

The buckles and straps for both the front and back compartments are mainly decorative, there is no way to adjust them without modifications. There is plenty of expansion room in the compartments themselves but if you put too much stuff in them the buckles won’t snap, defeating the expansion of the compartments. I don’t always need the extra room, but when I do need to stuff a few extra things in the bag it is nice to know it will be secure.

To remedy this problem I took the bag to a local cobbler and had him modify it. He added two holes to each of the front buckle straps and installed two magnetic clasps to the ends of the decorative straps on the rear of the bag. This allows both compartments to be secured when at full capacity. The price of the modification was $12 and makes the bag much more versatile and doesn’t impact the look.

Other than that, I really like the bag. I’m finding it a bit difficult to organize all the various electronic gadgets I carry with me, but there would be no way to remedy that without making the bag more bulky and that would defeat its style.

I bought a pair of these shoes last summer. I have had trouble finding a flip flop type sandal that was comfortable. The first time I put them on I felt this was too good to be true. The heel isn’t totally flat but does have some elevation. It is padded enough that it is comfortable. On the top there is an adjustable strap so that if it stretches some you can tighten them. It was the first purchase I made for the spring. Except this year I bought two pair. It is my favorite summer shoe
