    I’ve only had this product for several days, but it has been good so far for my P90x/30 day shred workouts. The one thing I found annoying about the product description is that they didn’t have the weights that the bands equaled, so I put them here:

    Yellow: 2-5 lbs
    Green: 5-8 lbs
    Red: 8-12 lbs
    Blue: 12-16 lbs
    Black: 16-20 lbs

    These bands are perfect for toning, although if you are into muscle building, I wouldn’t recommend this product, and would suggest purchasing dumbbells instead.

    Also, customer service was extremely good. I couldn’t find the door anchor at first since it was in the package with the green band (which I didn’t use because I use the blue/black bands), but customer service replied to me within the hour with a concerned and courteous attitude.

    I am an ex-college athlete who still plays a lot of sports and works out regularly. P90x is something I’m giving a shot, more out of intrigue than need. Although I would prefer (and plan on buying) dumbells, I was pleasantly surprised by the effectiveness of resistance bands. This is a first for me, so I had no idea what to expect. I like the way each band has it’s own handle, which seems to be very comfortable and durable. On a couple exercises, the nylon straps rub and irritated my forearm, but that’s going to happen with anything you use. If you are a gym rat, you might find the bands (all of them, not just this brand) to be too light. For example, I usually use dumbells in the 50-120 lb. range depending on what kind of lifting I’m doing. So, for some P90x exercises, a 20-25 lb. band is not going to be enough. However, I definitely recommend these bands to women and any one who is new to P90x or working out.

    The most impressive part of my purchase was the service. My kit was sent missing one of the bands. A service rep replied to my email within 2 hours with sincere, focused concern. The missing band was sent the next morning and on my doorstep two days later. Great service and great product. Thanks!

    PS. To Amazon… If you are going to edit my review, PLEASE at least have someone who speaks English do it. The last time I wrote a review, someone paraphrased it – who obviously does not speak English or never completed high school. Amazing that a company as large as Amazon can’t hire English speaking employees. Stooopid.

    The bands are high quality, what you’d expect for a great deal less then some of their competitors. They get the job done. But they fail in several areas.

    Cons:

    I really don’t like the handles, on some exercises the handle tends to lean to the side, and the plastic is a rather rough on the side of your hands when you’ve got it stretched out and the thing starts to slide on you. Handles like the official p90x ones would of been a hundred times better. The fabric and plastic just hurts your hands too much after awhile of heavy use.

    The bands need to be able to stack together to increase the tension like many other brands that use clips instead of the directly attached to handle method here. Really annoying that I can’t put more then one band on one handle.

    The door attachment makes me terrified to use it. It literally seems like a strap with some metal sewn in. Something bulkier would of been awesome, I’m worried the thing’s going to fly out from under the door and crack me in the face.

    The bands are worth the price, but I’d say pay another 20 bucks and get some really nice ones with comfortable handles, and let’s you stack the bands together instead, these make a good budget alternative though.
