Seriously, if you live near a chain art supply store, take the trouble to go. Hobby Lobby almost always has a 1/2 price special going on decently durable brushes, but if you live near a United Art Supply store, their store brand brushes are the best I've ever used. They hold a point for at least a hundred hours of painting, then take abuse for washes, etc. My paintbrush holder is full of them in various states of wear.
So there are good brushes out there, but these aren't them.

It came with a plastic transparent protective bristle cap in a long narrow zip bag. The wooden body is slightly fatter and longer than a typical paintbrush, but feels good in my hand. After washing off the protective dried gel on the bristles, it felt soooooooo soft, almost luxurious, when I made a long stroke. Longer I use it in a session, softer it becomes, but never to the point where it's difficult to control it. Holds enough water to last a line across an A4 paper sheet. So far it's keeping its shape well whether wet or dry.
The only possible con: it's soft enough to make me suspect that those into precision, straight lines or tiny details may struggle with it a bit I think it's possible to do those after some practice, but all in all,. I think it may be more suited to those into long loose/soft strokes, small-area washes, large flowers/plants or urban sketching. I'm liking it so far, which makes it a good buy in my books.
For comparison's sake, I've uploaded a photo of four paintbrushes (from top to bottom):
- Princeton Neptune 6
- Van Gogh 191 Selected Filament 6 (Neptune is a little softer than this)
- Artway 6 (Neptune is much softer than this)
- Silver Brush Velvet 3000s 4 (Neptune is a tiny bit stiffer than this)
And a quick sketch in watercolour (Paul Rubens 12), which I did with the Princeton Neptune brush 6.
