Covers for Handles at the Gym: Cool or Not?

I fully admit that I can be a germ-a-phobe with the best of them, but even I can have a limit.

Recently I came across a new product called Handle Buddies, which are physical barriers that you place between you and the handle bars or any gym equipment that eliminate direct skin-to-surface contact and hopefully any skin to germ contact as well. What's more? They come with a pouch that you wear around your waist to store them when not in use while you're walking around the gym. Ready to take your OCD out of hiding, then buy them from for $20.

I have my own opinions on this product, but I am curious what you guys think -- Personal handle covers at the gym: Cool or not?
