What have you bought today - VOL 4

Postby Johnmcl7 » 25 Apr 2018, 21:28

I've a friend at work who has a Fitbit Surge and I've been surprised at how bad the materials are as he's on his fifth one now within a year and every single one has failed exactly the same way with the strap becoming wrinkled and then falling apart. That's bad enough on its own but what's worse is the unit is designed as one piece so he has to get an entire replacement unit every time. My own fitbit which was one of their early models died a few months in as well.

Finally after 10 years, bought a new gore Tex north face coat!

Oh, and a new umbrella for my laptop bag.

That's right guys, summer is coming!

Summer is definitely here at the moment, on one hand it's great to have bone dry trails with lots of grip but it can be quite a killer riding in this heat.

I decided to treat myself to a Logitech Craft keyboard as I've been looking for a new keyboard with laptop style keys and backlighting without a builtin palm rest which is remarkably difficult. While the keyboard is pricey it feels extremely well made and so far I'm very pleased with it particularly as the Microsoft Arc keyboard I was using didn't have a full set of function keys and the arrow keys being placed on a single d-pad style button were not good.

Got a new work laptop thats 15" so needed a new laptop bag as its strugging to fit in my old targus. plus that stinks of chilli's now as i left a bag of dried ones in there.

So i just ordered a Fjallraven Raven 28L bag. My second Fjallraven. Love the first one, and this will be my first made with recycled polyester! But more importantly it has all the pockets and space i personally need to take a light jacket and sauce bottles and stuff in it as well as a laptop! Still, it wont be here for another few days so time will tell!

Which model did you get Rus?

I have been tentatively looking at a gaming laptop myself lately.
