These gloves are just what my 18 year old weight lifter needed. He works out daily and tears up his hands lifting during his workouts. I purchased these gloves for him for Christmas and he has been using them every day. They are padded and have anti-slip fabric on the palms to help with gripping the bar. They are great for doing chin ups with a bar, or using the bar to deadlift too. The stitching is nice and even with daily use they are not coming unravelled, they still look brand new. The material is breathable and they can also be washed if they get too sweaty. The wrist portion has a wrap that goes all the way around his wrist and velcros to keep it in place. They are adjustable to fit by tightening this strap and it helps to provide extra support during workouts.
