I have been training for over 15 years and for many I have been using leather gloves without wrist support. I have built up to quite a heavy weight on many exercises and my gloves are not up to scratch so I thought I would give these gloves a try.
I have been using them for a couple of weeks now and they appear very well made with good wrist support. There is a lot of padding in all the right places (around thumb and also on the palm) this makes the worth of difference when pushing big weights.
The gel material does give a slight bit of extra grip but not as much as I would have expected, they give little grip on shiny stainless steel weight bars, buy saying that this is not enough to drop any stars in the review.
All in all I would recommend these gloves - I have read other reviews of gloves that leave black marks on your face, however these do not have that problem as they are a fabric glove.
****REVIEW UPDATE**** I have now used these gloves for 5 months of heavy abuse in the gym and they are still excellent - I have hand washed them a couple of times as theres no washing instructions. There is no problems with stitching or wear and they look like they will go on for years! Very happy!
