I own the Cordless large and it rocks my world.
Features I like:
non-hinged
metal buckles
waist belt
padded shoulder strap
fuzzy material on landing area

Foam setup:
3 sheets closed cell (firm)
1 sheet open cell (cush)

place 3closed on top of open cell for highball landings(firm pad distributes larger forces better)

place 1closed on top, then the open cell, then 2 closed on bottom for normal landings.

for ultra cushy landings throw all the closed cell foam on the bottom

I've heard the metolius pads are pretty nice too, Focus pads are new and can only be bought online but are well priced i believe.

-cheers, mark

out here at hueco most folks tend to like MegaSpot pads www.megaspot.8m.com, bomber designs be picky before you buy one.
