I ordered this pony to use as an interim solution while my favorite 'big-name' extension brand is sold out of their own pony extensions that my mach my regularly worn extensions. I am quite surprised at the overall quality of this pony, however!I ordered shade #4/P27 in a natural 16" length that best matches the length of my regular extensions if they were put up in a pony. The color is spot on to what I hoped it would look like based on the product listing photos, and matches incredibly well. The hair is soft with a healthy - not faux - sheen, and the securing fixture works well. I did notice a little bit of shedding on the very first day that I wore it, but not so much afterwards. And, I find it to be very comfortable for all day wear - once it is on, I don't notice any sort of heaviness on my head whatsoever - even when working out!My only slight disappointment, albeit not a total surprise based on the thickness described in the product listing, was that the 16" weight does not have a ton of volume to it. That said, I found for that extra 'umph' I was looking for, it is easy to throw in a few of your own regular clip extensions at the crown of your head before pulling your own hair up into a pony tail, and then just place this pony extension over top as you would normally.Overall, if you are looking for a reliable pony extension that looks natural, matches color easily, and is not going to break that bank - this is the one you want!
