Sort of a Necro-bump... I bought the CandyGrind Handbags last season and they were great. The zipper is hard to unzip at first, but after it breaks in a little its great. No signs of wearing really... I don't ever use a tow rope though, so there isn't much to really tear them up.
I was a little scared from that guys review of the park glove because I just ordered the handbags 2 days ago. How does the pipe glove liner hold up?
