I've had these for 2 years now and have probably put over 60 days on them. My straps are fraying a little bit but other then that they are great. For the price you can't go wrong and I've never really had and problems with response or anything like people have said. Actually I'm pretty sure Shaun White uses these and love him or hate him you got to admit he's a machine. I've hit some pretty big hits in the back country, slashed pow and hit some big jumps in the park and they were good. I will be buying another pair when these go.
