Decent lifting gloves
on 20 February 2014
I got these to replace my previous RDX gloves which lasted about a year of regular use before getting worn to the point of being impractical, figured I'd go for an upgrade as a replacement.
The are a bit tight putting on and taking off, I prefer the two strap style (one over the back palm, one over the wrist) as you can make it tight to preference whereas these gloves have a fitted size approach. I figure they may stretch a bit as time goes on but at the moment it's a bit annoying at the end of a tiring workout to have to fight to get these off.
The wrist strapping is quite supportive and the leather elements and padding look like they take a lot of wear.
It also digs a little into the hand when lifting heavy bars in one spot. The bit on the palm side where the suede/fabric meets the leather thumb, in the topmost corner between the two, a part of the inner stiching sits in the line of your natural grip. I don't know if this is just for me, due to my own hand size/shape and grip nuances or is a recurring thing for others.
Also the padding placements aren't completely ideal for pull-ups, but that's only really noticeable when you're close to failure.
