View Full Version : WO Gloves

I have done a search, already(so no flaming, please.)

Anyways, I use harbingers but would like to get higher quality gloves; which brands/styles do you guys recommend?

Note: this question is for BBers who actually use gloves; i understand there are those of you who disagree and think it is only for women/wussy to use gloves, and i respect that. Please dont respond if this is your intention. I'm merely asking for brand names/prices. Thanks! :)

Chalk costs $1 a block where I buy it and a block lasts me months.

I've had these (http://www.thesportsauthority.com/product/index.jsp?productId=933160&cp=876637.694002&page=2&doVSearch=no&clickid=mainnav_browse_txt&pageBucket=0&parentPage=family) for about two years now... they're pretty good but I don't really have a comparison since these were my first pair of lifting gloves

A few friends use versa grips and love them, when I use gloves (I'm a guitar player so when I have gigs or recording dates I need to save my hands) I just buy them basically in bulk and cheap. Wal-mart ect, Buy 5 pairs for next to nothing and not worry about them wearing out

I have the cheap ones from wal-mart. They were like 8 bucks, and with the exception of splitting a thumb seam after 7 months, they've been great. If they get too loose, I just wash and dry them.

Workout buddy uses Valeo's, and he's had them a LONG time with no breakage.

In "Ronnie Coleman: The Unbelievable", Ronnie wears gloves. Anyone claiming they're for pussies can take it up with him :).

Mrelwooddowd mentioned Valeo's, I'm 99% sure that's what I use and I like 'em.

I just use the cheapest pair I found at Wal-Mart. I've had them since High School, and that was 4 years ago. They've treated me well. :)
