I love my hoop! This is my 2nd from Canyon Hoops. They're so easy to travel with, fits right over the handle of my carry on suitcase (good conversation starter too! people always ask me what it is) and great quality. I recommend!

This is my first ever adult-sized hula hoop and boy, am I a happy hooper! I LOVE the PORTABILITY of this hoop. I bought it to stuff in a suitcase to take on a cruise with me. I haven't tried putting it in a suitcase yet, but it looks like it will fit in a large suitcase. But the thing I'm happiest about regarding the portability of this hoop is that IT FITS ON THE BACK OF MY BICYCLE strapped to the rack!! I'm a bicycle commuter (I don't own a car) and that means I can take this hoop almost everywhere! It collapses and opens easier than pie. I'm extremely happy with this hoop overall.

Great quality hoop. Fast shipping. I am recovering from a severe hip injury and wasn't sure I would be able to use or benefit from this, but I was wrong. It is easy and fun. The first few days caused a little tenderness but after that, I feel like my mobility has increased. Have also lost a few pounds! Opening and closing the hoop also took a little getting used to but now its easy. Construction is wonderful, LOVE this hoop!!
