I love, love, love Mattes. The quality you get in their products is impeccable. I bought a fleece half pad from them when I was in Aiken and it cost a lot, but my coach has two Mattes pads that are both over 10 years old and still in amazing condition. If you take care of them right, they can last forever. I wouldn't buy one of their ear bonnets with the intent of using it daily, but as a show bonnet I would possibly consider it. For an every day ear bonnet I would just get a cheap bonnet. Colors fade quickly in the summer sun.
