Between the two brands that you asked about the Lee filters are considered much better than the Cokin. As Scott said, both are resin filters .... I agree with his recommendation of glass ND filters if your budget / wallet can handle the cost.
I use a mix of Singh-Ray / Galen Rowell and Lee filters (all resin filters) Hi-Tech also makes a good ND filter. I do not recommend the round ND filters (tried that and didn't care for the results).
