Very good, but not perfect (for me).
on 10 February 2013
Being a girl and not wanting to shred my palms on heavy lifts (and not having the strongest grip in the world) I decided to get some new lifting straps. Many years ago I had a pair of rough hide straps which I *loved* but lost and I was hoping that these RDX straps would be a modern replacement.
Well sadly they aren't quite as good as the leather ones I once had, but they are still very good indeed.
On the plus side, the RDX straps are made from the usual high quality materials you would expect from RDX.
Like other RDX products they have tried to innovate and improve on the basic lifting strap design, in this case with rubber grips stitched into the strap, something I find to be *very* effective and reduces slipping.
Good length on the straps at over 20"
Not everyone is going to like the rubberised grip.
They don't feel quite as durable as a basic pair of leather straps (though time will tell and I'll update this review over the coming months).
In summary then, these are great straps which are very comfortable and provide superb grip but they might not suit everyone or be particularly hard-wearing.
Four stars (though may be five for some and three for others).
