I have never had one go bad that was not well used. By that I mean several years. I have had good luck with them and they hold up well.
I like the Gel ones in the summer but in the winter they get hard from the cold. If you keep them in the house then it is not a big deal but I do not want to have to carry it out and back in every time I ride.
