A lot of Joe Rocket hatin' going on here. Makes me feel bad about my Ballistic 7.0 jacket I bought for next to nothing because it was available in my size. After a few months of light use I lost one dome snap already and the main zipper is a PITA to operate.

Ive got quite a bit of stuff from HF that I think works well. Motorcycle Table lift, dial gauge, stubby ratchets, pliers, seal and bearing drivers, slide hammer, dial gauge mount.... The list goes on and on for me.

Yup, my tool box has Snapon, Craftsman, Matco and some HF tools...they've mostly worked just fine. Some things are obvious, some surprise you, but I've found it worth the gamble for a light-use specialty tool or set of something I don't mind losing. They have their place.

I'm struggling to think of things I've bought that really let me down, I think about the worst as far as equipment goes has been power washers, been through 3 or 4 and they've all failed way too soon, and these ranged from a $100 Karcher electric to a $700 Honda-powered unit with a triplex ceramic pump. I'm done throwing money at them, cheaper to rent them and pay for the car-wash occasionally.
