    The materials used are fine but the taping came away after the first use (gloves, buff, hat and towel) and there are large stitch holes showing now.

    I'm probably being picky:o o:

    I've got similar sized stuff sacks of Paul's from way back that are still going strong.

    I think it's the way the seam has been constructed that lets it down, stitched and then taped with 20mm tape.

    The overlap of the stitched seam is not stuck so there is only a few mm of tape actually making contact and when stuffing things inside it pulled the tape off. I'll retape it when I get chance.

    I didn't buy it to be 100% water tight as it's a stuff sack and it's still doing the job ok, just more wearing than I'd expect

    I left them positive feedback as it arrived fast, well packaged and basically as described.

    Looks like he's got his own brand name now instead of putting 'like Treadlite Gear' in all of his titles....

    Not a very original product line.

    Some very familiar designs there. At least they're honest in one of their postings:

    When I lived in Cairo, you used to be able to buy Egyptian-made Gordon's gin, Johnny Walker whisky etc. But if you looked closely, in small letters before the brand it said, "better than".
    BTW, it wasn't.
