I got these because I needed a lower profile muff for shouldering my shotgun.These do that job. Hearing protection is good when shooting my 12 ga. The fit is a bit tight for my largish (sz 7 5/8) head. These muffs fold down to a nice compact size so they don't take up alot of space in your range bag. The Buckmark muffs come close, but don't quite reach shooting muffs nirvana-For the price, though, they get even closer. Though I'm not raving, I do recommend these.
I purchased these, and another different pair at the same time. These are nice slim line muffs that block out sound very well. I bought them for both shooting clays and to protect my hearing when using my diesel tractor. A slightly larger set would be good as I have a large head (size7+) and they would then be very comfortable. JR
