zcsalwjlnkkwq2d
I'd agree, of you're going to buy a laptop and keep it for 4-5 years that has the RAM and SSD soldered on, with no path to upgrade it, then get 32/512 over a faster processor
aozxjh2d
N95 masks are easily available
blbipzvhtxeuryfq2d
Where are they usually sold, pharmacies?
dpgzan2d
Yeah. Any half-decent pharmacy works. For your peace of mind, you can look for Apollo/Religare/Fortis pharmacies, or the ones attached to a hospital

Thanks

Found my first Uniqlo store today, anyone have opinions on their stuff?
hokqubmufvaulbav2d
snrpuzre Great to stock up on tshirts. Excellent quality for less than $8 US. They have a solid Merino wool sweater that I use as a middle layer. I have two of those. And, of course, very solid long underwear
pdtfttqdrdvnwxci2d
I also have their boxer briefs which I like a lot
ljhscye2d
I was just at Uniqlo a few days ago. My impression was that the quality was mostly bad. But they really try to hide that behind stylish designs and clean, bright stores. When I look at quality, I look at materials, seams, patterns at the seams, things like that. My wife also agrees with me. H&M quality seems a bit better, although Iโ€™m not a huge fan of them also.
kjnfjmp2d
Most things Iโ€™ve bought from H&M in the UK has fallen apart within a year so Iโ€™m not a fan personally, other people have great luck and swear by them though so YMMV
lufspehknulktbjy2d
Uniqlo is not top quality, ๐Ÿ’ฏ But the value is there and their items are comfortable
elujtsh2d
After seeing their stuff in store my thoughts were that it looks good, it looks like itโ€™ll stuff into a bag really well for travelling, and if anything falls apart then it wonโ€™t break the bank to replace it. Does that sound like it matches with experience?
ofsbubibjwdqxdib2d
The two Merino wool sweaters were $30 each iirc. Definitely going to cut some corners on quality and thread count. The are good looking, and comfortable
zqnttjzurgokyduf2d
I just wore one over a dress shirt ($200 for the shirt, so I do pay for quality sometimes) to a sales pitch and it looked great
axwmlyw2d
Thatโ€™s awesome, I think I might get some sports/activewear clothing and start from there
xijbhmu2d
Hopefully the sales pitch went well for you?
ckbqkfvftnqoiacp2d
Really well. We're in the final 3. Even money from here imo
kvatybsf2d
nxwxgrps I have always had good experiences with Uniqlo quality, especially their joggers. You can tell by the reinforced stitching and the material that it is decent quality. jzmxkusg saying h&m is better than Uniqlo is an opinion I haven't heard before. I thought h&m was pretty widely known for shit quality and fast fashion. Uniqlo designs dont change much because they seem to focus on incremental improvements and technical specs instead of what is trendy
poktqwjk2d
For the price, Uniqlo is a great choice IMO
mrjugzxk2d
Also the fact that they are a Japanese company means they most likely care more about quality than the average
whlvvnsm2d
Labor violations are another story, but h&m and similar have much worse track records
skdkvwsp2d
I avoid h&m purely for those reasons
bfuiogaqu2d
H&M literally falls apart in laundry and most my friends share same opinion, widely known
qidfhpmni2d
Uniqlo is high quality
bocmplwx2d
Yea like I haven't seen a similar widely available price to quality brand
pgjsysuw2d
At least for technical wear
cvsknwcyb2d
Bershka/Zara/Inditex brands are a notch better than H&M
qkbposzzbrtsczri2d
Uniqlo is good value, but saying it's high quality is a bit of a reach.
evhbxtvunrsusrmp2d
I like the brand, but I don't expect the same things of their $30 Merino wool as a do smartwool's Merino
fqxqkejqknsnhmll2d
Also worth knowing that Uniqlo is mostly made in Vietnam I believe, not Japan
btxhyfkrpfpcpvrr2d
Uniqlos prices are so good Im happy if I get a year out of it
ksjaxsq2d
Interesting! Thanks for all of the opinions, glad to know itโ€™s not just me that has poor luck with H&M haha
tbdygdqqcv2d
True, but different owners
vzbeuxeyyuknux2d
Uniqlo is good. But I did easily damage a wind breaker jacket. Theyโ€™re a little bit too fragile for my clumsiness. Other items shirts, underwear, pants are good. However, I prefer wool clothes but these nonwool uniqlo items work well so far.
bsodhbjomjz2d
yeah uniqlo is great quality for the price. plus theyโ€™re basics. easy to find stuff to go with the other stuff you have. and theyโ€™re in a lot of places so itโ€™s a really good staple store to visit when you need to replace something on the road
qnjfuweacougwa2d
I checked four random uniqlo garments of mine. Theyโ€™re made in Indonesia, China, Vietnam, and thailand.
zgwqbx2d
I like it. No real issues, and they have a neat auto-copy of 2FA codes if you have them in 1Password.
bqfywqceyc2d
If I had to go ascending in quality in my personal experience I'd say H&M < Uniqlo < Marks&Spencer
Uniqlo have some seriously lightweight and warm jackets it's ridiculous how good they are for packing light
kvksqzmy2d
I am just gonna throw this here since you are talking about affordable quality men apparel and I noticed they have a men line www.everlane.com/collections/mens-all

Any toiletries bag recommendations? My REI bag interior plastic is flaking. Btw what happened to the gear webpage on NL?

xxticitthhodzrs20h
What do you need from it? I use an airline amenity kit for the carry-on stuff and just a plastic bag for anything in the hold
zohbvpjxqboufi20h
Hook to hang, mirror
dcwlqkkesewwr18h
I honestly use the bags my Granite Gear compression stuff sacks came in. I don't need a mirror though

I have some of these, and while I wouldn't trust the hangers for carrying outside my bag, they're serviceable to hang them from things
oprrvussdth18h
iโ€™ve so given up on this haha. i tried a few over the years but now i just use whatever right size bag i have lying around (+ ziploc for liquids)โ€ฆ the bag that my Girlfriend leggings came in most often. but still curious to see what people have to share ๐Ÿ‘€
ewelayoinxedbg18h
This is what I have been using for four years. It's nice but the platic inside has deteriorated. www.rei.com/product/878299/rei-co-op-grande-shower-kit-black|https://www.rei.com/product/878299/rei-co-op-grande-shower-kit-black
ykourxcfoepscd18h
I ordered and returned a different similar one on amazon because it was too big.
whgsnddxnmltjb17h
Muji has nice ones. Definitely with hooks, not sure if thereโ€™s a mirror in them tho
ddrtpglqnuv16h
Anyone used Krisp and liked it? I seem to not be able to adjust the volume anymore after installing it ๐Ÿค”
fejdjipzy15h
Ok so I am considering the razr
vjhqscahl15h
But itโ€™s cool!
tesgyytht15h
And it feels like itโ€™s from the future
jpocatijjjsul15h
I don't want a phone from the future, I want a phone from the past

Not the razr though

TCL are going to put out some cheap knockoff later this year for the proles supposedly

More like a Palm V

Miss the hell out of that thing

Quick.. black!
qrdlxkmjqfcnb15h
Yes, but I've also been shopping for retro style phones
gcogljihdmjtu15h
Like you, I guess
mvxifzfui15h
I just liked the folding part
mvjpigihd15h
And Samsungโ€™s one seems to suck balls
wwqijfvff15h
Based on the reviews anyway
wckdlqmpvojuv15h
Yeah, top of my list has been the F(x)tec Pro1 but the reviews have been really trashing it so now I'm a little less sure
lveuzzktxxbrh15h
Looks so sweet
gtmrogrui15h
Iโ€™ve never bought something with a consistent bad review history and been happy
tvglhssiobnbv15h
Once in a while all the bad reviews on something will be based on a feature I didn't want to use
dajjzjgpxlejl15h
But probably not with a phone
fhyaosinn15h

my wife sold something the other day and the person gave it 3 stars for being "bigger than expected" when the main photo of it contains the exact dimensions

Jack wolfskin is what I have used lately www.jack-wolfskin.com/waschsalon/86130-600.htmlbr />You can check every camping gear brand you can think of, they must have something for you.

ysffkehvmcqv the background noise app? I use it and quite like it.
aquayuztusuwg10h
I think it's super cool. I'm not going to spend that kind of money on a phone just yet, but I absolutely love the form factor. Anything that could get me some more pocket space is a win

Also, you have to physically open it to use the big screen. Which means, if you're conscientious about it, could prime yourself that the act of opening puts you into a specific mindset. re productivity vs. slacking
ktnwwwylbawkj10h
The plastic feeling screen is a turn off. But, that's the first phone in a long time I've actually truly desired, so would get over it
xdgohfixw7h
I want the cool factor
twnizamzq7h
And I guess plastic is gojng to be part of the deal until Corning gets its liquid glass finished
pembrllxc6h
I have these compression/waterproof bags in every size. Highly recommend for quality
dkznxstui6h
Crap that had an affiliate link for some reason
ekwgvjnxum2h
I just use any bag too. The trick is to pack an S hook that fits into the zipper hole for hanging the bag so it stays dry
arvypibcpjoqjqxtqj15min
Yeah Iโ€™ve got an Olympus OM 50mm manual lens thatโ€™s effectively a 100mm portrait lens. Real nice!
