Custom Leathercraft IP489X Review

This Custom Leathercraft nail and tool bag is designed to make the handyman’s life easier. The belt has a price tag of $12.35. It is composed of premium leather and suede material and has a three pocket design. The heavy duty belt has two large pockets to store nails and tools, a hammer loop and a smaller pocket meant to hold pliers, wrenches and pencils snugly. The web belt is 2 inches in width and has a quick release clasp so it can be easily taken off or snapped on. This tool belt fits waist sizes from 29 inch to 46 inches.

Pros

This leather tool belt is light-weight and only has a few slots, making it simpler than complicated tool belts to carry around. The clasp is easy to snap on and off, and this belt allows you to have the necessary tools with you when you’re working. This is well made with high quality leather and suede materials, and is rather comfortable to wear.

Cons

Unfortunately, there are a few flaws in the design when it comes to this tool bag. The hammer loop isn’t large enough to accommodate most hammers, but it fits small ones. The belt clasp is meant to release easily, but sometimes it comes undone when you simply bump into things mistakenly.

Overall

All in all, this tool bag is perfect for carrying a select few tools along with your tape measure and marking pencils. Unfortunately, depending on the size of your hammer, it may not fit. This belt can help out when you’re working and need a hands free solution.

Update Your Home With a Yoga Studio

One of my clients with the absolute best set up of any home I’ve ever seen has a yoga studio and home gym right in his house. It’s ridiculously awesome. I was over there the other day and I must say I was impressed. The most important part of any yoga routine, of course, is the yoga mat. So I wanted to review this awesome mat real quick because if you’re thinking of doing the same thing, it really is a great idea.

Gaiam Print Yoga Mats (3mm)

The Gaiam Print Yoga Mat is 3mm in width and retails for $26.98 on Amazon. It is available in a variety of colors and patterns to fit your unique personality. The mats are designed to make yoga enjoyable and comfortable and feature a textured light tack, non-slip surface. These yoga mats are latex free and are composed of earth friendly, non harmful ingredients.

Pros

These mats are free of the 6 harmful Phthalates DEHP, DBP, BBP, DINP, DIDP, and DNOP that are commonly found in other yoga mats. The Gaiam mats are lightweight and durable, making them easy to transport to yoga class. There are several different designs available to suit your personality. This mat offers a decent amount of support and rolls up easily.

Cons

Unfortunately, when you remove this from the packaging, there is a slight odor. The mat needs to be aired out and the smell will dissipate after the first or second use. Some users have stated the mat is a bit slippery, if this occurs, just wipe it down with a warm soapy rag and leave the mat out to dry.

Overall

This mat is a little pricy, but offers a lightweight and durable fix for your yoga obsession. It can easily be tossed in a gym bag and won’t put a strain on your bag. The thickness of the mat provides support for working out and offers a non-slip surface. There are few yoga mats out there that don’t include the 6 harmful ingredients. This mat allows you to cater to your own personal style, and can withstand generous amounts of usage.

Dirt Devil Gator Review

The Dirt Devil Gator is a cordless, lightweight (4.4 pounds) hand held vacuum with 15-3/5 volts of power suction at a fantastic price of $39.99. It’s perfect for cleaning those hard to reach places, counter tops or bookshelves. The Dirt Devil Gator has a slick design and an appearance which suits its name. This devil is perfect for vacuuming your vacuum!

Pros

Well, it’s a very basic, ordinary hand held vacuum with the ability to do a great job on hard surfaces and carpeted surfaces. The Dirt Devil Gator works is perfect for vehicles due to the size, suction and cordless design. The small size of the vacuum makes cleaning rather quite convenient (if you don’t run out of battery).

Cons

On the whole, the suction isn’t brilliant and you can sometime struggle to pick up some crumbs off the floor and the battery life is quite disappointing averaging about 10 minutes with full suction and then winding down. No matter how long you charge it for, it’ll never produce full suction for over 10 minutes which is a huge flaw because it usually runs out of ‘juice’ midway through a clean.

For the price you pay – it’s worth it. If you only need a little hand held vacuum for ‘every now and then’ cleans then this will serve you well. It isn’t too powerful and the battery life isn’t great, so this vacuum shouldn’t be relied upon too much. As I said, for the price you pay, it’s good but if you need something stronger and more consistent; I’d suggest investing more money in a vacuum.
