I��m a recent transplant from Texas to San Francisco and am diving in head first to the healthy lifestyle of walking everywhere. Don��t get me wrong, walking up hills is rough but I figured if I need to go up a hill, might as well add a work out into it. I tried these bands for my walks and they are really amazing. The quality is great and feels just as good as the more expensive ones I got locally at REI. Downside to the ones at REI is they are more expensive and one band is more than this 3 pack. The material is thick but there��s a nice bounce to it. I found the biggest resistance band is great for my walks and the smallest band is too strong for me right now. Even though I��m not using the smallest one, I like the fact that the pack comes with different resistances because as one becomes easier, I can move on up. Way worth the price for this 3 pack.
