Advantages: Great site, Cool gear, Good service
Disadvantages: not everyones "cup of tea"
Cyberdog.co.uk is one of the coolest web sites you will ever come across. Its more than just a clothing and accessories site, and is so slick and well designed you will be sure to be lured into placing an order soon after a few visits.
Cyberdog is the home of all those funky clothes you may have seen if you are a clubbing regular. If you have ever wondered where people get those strange rubberised shirts, fluorescent trousers, electric powered T-shirts and all the other "crasher kid" accessories you see Cyberdog is probably the place they got them.
The web site welcomes you in with a black starry background and lots of cool flash text and sound. Let the intro run through and you will be presented with an option screen. You'll notice the strange "Cyberdog" space ship that is the company's logo (it features in all their designs - once you've visited the site you will notice just how many people are wearing Cyberdog gear in clubs). Select one of the options and you'll be whisked off to another part of the site by the cyber ship, all to a funky dance track.
The site is broken up into areas including Earth stations (Store locations), News (new stores, new collections & job vacancies) Contacts, Interaction (which includes a picture puzzle game and public gallery) and the Virtual Store itself.
Enter the Virtual Store and you can shop for those wacky clubbing items you've seen on the dance floor. The light-tee's (T-shirts with a cool electronic panel that illuminates at the flick of a switch) are my favourite item on the site. They are quite pricey, at £40 each, but look cool and are easy to wash thanks to the removable light panel. Items are categorised well, in groups such as trousers, tops, T-shirts etc. each item is clearly illustrated, in all colours. A size chart is included to help you get your order right first time (more about that later)
Ordering is simple, and can be done
on-line or over the phone using your credit or debit card. The site is secure, and easy to use. Telephone ordering can take time, as the lines seem quite busy. Delivery costs £3.50, and orders are normally dispatched to you on the same day.
Should you get your sizes wrong, or find the item is not quite what you wanted returns are simple and quick. Simply pack the item up in the original wrapping, send it back and you'll be refunded full price (minus postage) I ordered the wrong size shirt and had a replacement dispatched and the refund credited to my account in just two days.
All in all Cyberdog is a great web site. It’s THE place to go for that different looking outfit for a hard nights clubbing. Even if you don’t want any cyber gear its worth a visit just for the great design of the site itself.
