I am a weightlifter with over 15 years of experience. I do heavy pulls twice a week, so I go through straps somewhat quickly. Unfortunately, these frayed in less than a month of lifting (~6 workouts). For comparison, I get almost a year out of my usual brand before they fail. Probably won't be buying these again.

They are comfortable, easy to use
By paisha allmendinger
First of all, I want to say that my boyfriend loves these straps. They are comfortable, easy to use, and shipped quickly. The cushion on the backside of them makes a world of difference. Additionally, I would like to give praise to the Rip Toned. I purchased these wrist straps for my boyfriend, he used them on the first day and loved them immediately. On his way home he must have dropped one and not known. He called me the next day panicking because it was shoulder day and that was the main reason he wanted the straps. He couldn't find his other strap. He ended up buying some cheap ones at the gym he goes to and he immediately hated them. The threading is different and uncomfortable and the cushion doesn't even exist. I wrote into Rip Toned and told them this story and they offered to ship another pair. It was incredibly sweet of them and it was something they really didn't have to do. We will forever be customers and supporters of theirs. My boyfriend tells his gym buddies and other people he knows that work out to use wrist straps by Rip toned. I highly recommend this great product by a company that cares about their customer. Thank you!

Didn't cut it, not for beginners at all.
By Amazon Customer
These straps did not work for me at all. I have average/small wrists and I couldn't get them tight enough around my wrist due to the huge label and padding that extends too far. The other problem I had was the length of the straps: by the time you get it wrapped around the bar, there is so much strap that your hand can barely grip the bar. I think they would be better if they were about 1.5-2" shorter.
I used my friends and they were shorter and not as wide in the strap. The width of the strap being smaller made a huge difference and I was able to grip the bar with ones that were shorter and not as wide.
I am not a professional weight lifter, but my friend is. He tried them and said they were too long also. His wrists are bigger than mine and said they were fine.
If you aren't already a professional weight lifter with large wrists and huge hands for gripping the entire bar + extra length of these straps, I'd probably look for something else.
