Great customer service and great product! Lives up to it’s name
I love my gripads. A friend of mine had bought them and she let me try them in our boot camp class. I did the same for another friend and now several of us are wearing them! I don’t like wearing gloves during my whole workout. My hands get sweaty and it’s hard to take gloves on and off quickly and this causes me delays in between sets. Gripads slip on and off with ease and really protect my hands from the nubby textured hand weights and bars. And they are great for those outdoor workouts when we are doing pushups on asphalt! It makes a huge difference in my comfort level as I never liked thick gloves because they are too hot and confining. The only small caveat is that they grip so well (live up to their name of course) that they are not ideal for swinging heavy items such as kettlebells or swinging through monkey bars. No matter, it is not really an issue as my hands can now take it. I only bring that up because as a woman, my hands were rather sensitive at first, but I’ve been working out for years now and must admit some callouses on my palms (thank goodness). I am just getting used to not having them on during those exercises. It hasn’t caused me any problems with blisters or soreness. I highly recommend them and have purchased 4 pairs so far – one to use now, one for my daugher, and two as backups. Oh and I didn’t mention that they are also machine washable!! Terrific product!
