The rubber is thck and durable, and textured so as to prevent slipperiness. It's pretty much exactly as advertised. The little foot pump to inflate it is super cheap and it takes a long time to complete this task. But it does work and have several valves and you only need to inflate it once, except for periodic booster shots. It does hold air pressure well (the ball, no the pump).

Thick rubber, beautiful robust blue color inspires me.

Metal rod w/rubber handles makes for durable construction.

Nice thick rubber ball. Feels like it will stand up to all the wear and tear!

I stopped "donating" to my local gym and so I needed something that could give me a good workout but be small enough to fit in my tiny apartment. This did both! I don't use the exercise bands at all, but they are really easy to put on and take off. The other great thing is that it is quiet when being used. I recommended this to my boyfriend and he ended up buy two. Unfortunately one was missing a rubber stopper on the bottom of the step pedals, but we were able to find an easy fix for it. Still a great at-home stepper!

A good price for all the equipment I needed for my beginners Yoga class. Has a very strong rubber smell, when doing positions where your face is in the mat, I would recommend using a scented oil on the rubber before use.

I am a small person, and I have had to replace very spring and every one of the rubber foot covers. This product is very poor quality.

Quality is good, all pieces included. Matt had a strong rubber smell, but once opened and laid out diminished over time.

Good product. The ball smelt like rubber a bit and the pump was plastic and not interchangable to use for blowing up tires/soccer balls etc.

Looked like it had been run over and was taped up and coming apart at the seams. I ordered 11/2 lb. and I got 2.5 lb. the rubber on the hoop has dents.

Very odorous at first. Takes about a week for that to go away. And after you air it up the first time and then use it, you may need to add more air one or two time. The rubber is just expanding to where it should be. It's air tight. I sit on mine all day.

very easy to use, well built, sturdy construction as advertised, a little quirkiness with the mini counter thing, rubber tube works great for me (5-7), no squeaky noise after a month of use

The product looked nice when arrived - some rubber smell, but it's to be expected.The problem was with its durability - within the first month, it began to wear off rapidly leaving shredded pieces all over the place.Would not recommend this to anyone who practices yoga on a regular basis.

I had one of these a few years ago, And I really liked it. I'd had abdominal surgery, but never had anything to support my belly after the surgery. I found one on another site, and ordered it. The difference between the 2, THIS one is bare rubber against your skin. The other one I had was completely covered, both sides. That is my ONLY complaint with this belt/band. If the rubber side was covered like the other side, I would have given it an "Excellent" rating.

There is literally no assembly required. You simply screw the unit tightly under any door of your choice, adjust the foot restraint, and begin your exercise. You can even leave the sit up bar secured to the door without experiencing any obstruction to doorway traffic. The door clamps are rubberized so there are no markings on the door.

This watch is not metallic silver as described. It is a light gray rubberized sports watch resembling the color of gray garage floor paint. It is difficult, if not impossible, to set. I do not know about the functionality of the watch in other colors. The styling looks the same for all. Not a good use of money, in my opinion.

I couldn't live without a polar watch, an excellent watch for us health conscience folks. The only minor down size is the rubber on the watch can get somewhat blk, so you need to use some comet to clean it, other than that, the Polar in my opinion is a great watch to purchase. Also you can't beat the price. These usually run about $ 300.00!!! Thanks, overstock.com

For the cost, these are a good value.The slip pads on the bottom are quite small and don't really work to hold bench in place on hardwoods so you will need pads beneath them.The plastic on top is hard, no rubber, so hands hurt if using them for lots of push ups or arm work.

there's a few things that could be better like the rubber ends not coming off. all but 1 stay on. i feel it is too long in length for working on the arms i have to tilt it and prop one end against my stomach and the other on my footstool. it's rather wobbly when i use it on the floor.it'd be nicer if it was shorter for storage purposes especially for people in small apartments.

While the product itself seems nice enough for some applications - the description was misleading. It says it is non-slip and suitable for use in areas where there is rain or snow. The photos also show a pebbled texture (which does not look as pebbled in person as it does in the photo). I secured this to a custom made dog ramp that gets used year-round. I wanted something that would be waterproof (suitable for winter) and more durable than the textured outdoor carpet that was currently on it. Works great when dry. Had the slightest bit of frost last night and my large dog barely made it up this surface this morning - slid backward repeatedly. What bothered me the most was that it looked dry, so you never would have expected him to slip. I would trust this in dry conditions, but not wet - and definitely not if it is being placed on any sort of a slope. If you are planning to use this indoors, know that mine sat indoors for a week - the odor was very strong and did not subside. (In case anyone else is in this same situation - I plan to try a rubberized neoprene mat or a rubber mat with horizontal ridges next...)

The gridiron attracts sports fans of every age and zip code, and "American football" continues to grow in popularity all over the world. Football fans constantly brag about topping popularity polls among team sports. America's weekend addiction is also a great opportunity for sports and fitness, but it is important to remember that football is a contact sport; players get hurt, sometimes seriously. Modern football gear is designed using the best engineering and materials available, and when you use the right football helmets, football pads and other football equipment, you can reduce chances of injury.
