The Harbinger Lifting Straps are a great accessory addition for anyone lifting. They are a little stiff at first and need to be broken in. The padding is a helpful addition that prevents those abrasions from forming on your wrists when lifting heavy. Definitely helps you get that last set in when your grip strength is starting to fatigue. I got the pink, and I think the color is great!

Great straps – love the padding – super soft right from the packaging. Didn’t need much breaking in. Straps had me deadlifting an extra 50lbs on the first use. I’m a female, 5’2″, athletic but small wrists – fit great didn’t need any alterations or cutting of fabric/padding either. Awesome right outta the box – highly recommend if you’re looking for straps. Also the color is great cause it’s a deep/rich pink which is recognizable and distinct but not obnoxiously girly… cause you know women care about those things ;).
Work great to reduce pain of lifting after dislocating a finger.

This is my first pair of lifting straps, and so far I’m happy with them. MAKE SURE TO WATCH YOUTUBE VIDEOS on how to use these properly. Not just Harbinger videos but some other brands as well. Make sure the “lose” end on both hands goes towards your thumb (which means there will be a “left” and a “right” one after you pull the strap through the loop). Also make sure to watch the video where they show you how to tighten them using the “motorcycle grip” (i.e. pinching and turning forward with your thumb). I purchased these for two reasons. First of all, I dislocated my finger recently, so it was hurting to lift (especially in pulling motions, like pull-ups or rows). I wanted something to help with the grip while my hand recovers. I am also finding that as my deadlifts are getting heavier, my hands/wrists are giving out before my legs do, so while I do want to develop grip strength, I simply was robbing my lefts of the extra reps I could’ve done were it not for the hands. I’m yet to try heavy deadlifts (waiting for the finger to heal), but the straps did help with my back/biceps workout in terms of reducing strain on the wrist and allowing my to do pullups, rows, etc.

These work great and are well worth the small price for the help with holding the bar during deadlifts. I don’t lift really heavy weights, but I was still finding that I was thinking more about trying to hold the bar than my form, so these lifting straps are a welcome addition to my home gym. They go on easily once you know the correct way and wrap around the bar quickly. I watched a YouTube video on how to use lifting straps–seems silly with something so simple looking, but I wanted to make sure I was using them the right way. I went back and forth on buying more a more expensive option, but these work fine for my set-up and needs.
These work great. Simple and strong. I use them while doing front squats–my wrist flexibility isn’t good enough to do it with the “hook grip” you use for a clean+jerk, so I instead wrap these and grip them. It helps hold the bar no matter how slick my sweaty shoulders get. As you’d expect/hope with lifting straps, they’re also easily tossed into a gym bag to take everywhere. The added padding on the inside is nice, but I don’t actually use them in that way, so I can’t remark on that functionally. My favorite part is the color. I wear pink converse while lifting, so these make me feel like an adorable coordinated BEAST.
Straps don’t center on wrist

I lost the straps I’ve been using for years from a brand I can’t remember and decided to get these because they were pink 😛 They were SUPER stiff at first, but I’m finally breaking them in. Didn’t consider how easily the pink would get dirty too. My biggest and only complaint is they don’t ever seem to center on my wrist and shifts towards my thumb. This affects my grip on handles, which kind of defeats my purpose of using straps :/ Oh well, they get the job done and they were super cheap

Pros: Heavy Duty. The wrist padding does not get in the way so in closes completely tight my wrist ( and I have small wrist). Unlike others Straps this one is long enough so that when you take them off they stay in the loop. I do not have to reset/reinsert them for every use like other brands. Bright pink allows me to see them easily in my bag. Also, no one else has bright pink in the gym so I know they are mine. Cons; none.

These are just basic straps; you really cannot go wrong with them. They do the job for a low price. They are a bit stiff, but perhaps that will go away with repeated use. That hardly has a negative impact on anything, however. I read some other reviewers’ comments concerning these straps cutting into skin and being uncomfortable. No offense to them intended, but I have to wonder if those people are putting these on right as I experience no discomfort whatsoever. There are some light red marks on my wrists for a half hour or so after I am done doing deads or shrugs with these, but that has to be expected when I am transferring hundreds of pounds of force onto my wrists. There is definitely no cutting or pain caused by these and the padding does help. The only reason for the lack of a 5th star on the rating is the stiffness of the material. As I said, though, this is extremely trivial and not a factor during lifts. The bottom line is that I would recommend these to a friend.
