Just wanted to say - mine suck. I am so unimpressed. A total waste of money

Hey Rene,

I'm sorry they didn't work out for you. I use mine quite a bit. To me they are quite soft and make it really easy to use rough bars. Mine also make me work harder on my grip because the padding is quite thick.

So for me I think it helps my grip strength and keeps my hands soft for massage therapy (which is one of my jobs).

But I can also see how they could be bulky and how someone might not like them.

I don't use them "all the time" but I do train with them and I don't think they're a bad product. And they are all vegan materials so that is a plus.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on them.

-Robert

my hands got all sweaty underneath them. And it didn't really seem to help my grip. I guess I'm just used to the feel of bare hands against the bars.

Well I stopped buying gloves because all I found was made out of leather. Then I tried mittens but they werent that good, made it worse. I just use bare hands.
