What did we think?
When I first opened the packet, my initial reaction was "Well that is not
going to hold much, it is too small and not possible!" Well how wrong
I was - once we started gripping them to items and weighing them down, we
were certainly not disappointed. One word of warning, don't hang it to
your t-shirt and see if you can pull it off, you wont and you will end up
with a very stretched t-shirt!!
They come in a small handy pack size and are lightweight and very easy to
carry around, however I would say that the large would be my personal
preference of the two sizes. Not only will it hold more, but the sections
are joined together, unlike the small ones, therefore you are not likely to
lose half of the clip. Of course if you are careful and do not misplace
things, then the small are great for the job in hand.
Very useful indeed, should be essential packing in any tenter's or
caravanner's toolbox or spares box
