People in the Army are naturally hard on things and a standard deck of playing cards withstands about 2 weeks of daily 4 hour play. These cards however have withstood over 3 months of constant play, and the only signs of wear is the paint starting to fade on the cards. This is with less than optimal playing surfaces that often have dirt and sand on them. The cards remain easy to shuffle and play with and truly add a little bit of style and some more enjoyment to your games... even if you're wearing body armor sitting in a bunker

Best deck of cards on the planet. Shuffle great! These cards are really slick so they slide very well, almost too well, they're very bendable but they don't mess up. Feels like a new deck of cards everytime. Basically very durable! Highly HIGHLY recommend these cards!!

The quality and style of these cards are great. They slide nicely when dealt. They sound and feel nice when they are shuffled. I can't say if they are better or worse that Copag cards which are also great (and for less $$$).

The cards are top of the line, but not perfect. My criticism is towards the maintenance. The box they come with does not snap shut, so you need to use a rubber band or something. Also, there is space from the roof of the lid to the divider of the two decks. If a card or two is in the middle, over time, they will bend.

I've tried putting something flat and heavy over the decks, and after a couple of days, they straighten out again ... strange.

There's a warning on the box that says not to store in high temperatures. It's a great warning and should be practiced.

I waited to do a review on these cards until they had had extensive use. Now, after about 40 hours of poker playing. After being shuffled about 4000 times and some cards subjected to a beer bath, there is no wear or tear visible on these cards. They are as easy to use now as when they were first unwrapped. An excellent substitute to regular playing cards.

I accidentally but the "wide jumbo index" cards and I actually really like them! My friends and I have always used the regular index but after a game with these I prefer these. They're much easier to see from all seats at the table. I'll stick with these going forward. As far as KEM cards go in general the quality is top notch. My friends couldn't believe me when I told them that I spent $20+ on two decks of cards but then when I explained that I'd be using my last set of KEM cards for about 10 years their jaws dropped. Well taken care of these cards will last forever. And they wipe clean easily too if you spill something on them. My favorite cards for sure

I expected the cards to be of a superb quality considering the brand and reviews displayed here. Unfortunately, one month after playing with them, several cards broke and are therefore not usable anymore. I wish I could return them but I gave them as a gift overseas.

You can always buy a cheaper deck of cards at any retail store but you aren't going to get the quality like you do with these cards. I bought them for a group that plays cards 6-8 hours a day 6 days a week. I remember when I was younger and grandma use to put baby powder on the cards to revive them. You dont have that problem with these cards they are just as slick a year later even with all that playing time. Just think if your only going to play with them occasionally they could last you a life time.

I must say, due to the price I was hesitant, I have been using Copaq for years now but have been disappointed the last case I ordered arrived bowed. So that forced me to order them kem's. I am very pleased. I deal poker three nights a week so I need cards that will stand up to the torture and bowed is not a good thing. I will spend the extra money for these super nice cards.
