The plastic cards are usable and without any major flaws. For those looking for durable use, the strong and water proof material is a good choice. I'm using it for camping and travel so those matter. 2 Jokers are included. Some downsides exist. The symbols are dark, uncolored, and small. The stronger material would make marking cards easy. While wet, the cards stick together and must dry before being shuffled. The only stylized symbol is the one on the Ace of Hearts seen in the primary image. The box the cards come in is hard to open and will fall apart quickly given standard use. And then there is the issue of finger sized rubber scrub brushes showing as the thumbnail picture when this is ordered: I have no clue about that.
