I haven't tried the ccs packs, but Ostrom's are great. I have three of them and enjoy them all. They are made in Thunder Bay, and one of mine was hand delivered by Bill Ostrom, so it's obviously not the same sort of scale as Nike!
Incidentally, there was a fellow who worked at Ostrom's shop named Joe O'Blenis - he makes a variety of interesting paddles and held (may still) the speed record for circumnavigating Vancouver Island in a kayak.
