"These by far are the best workout gloves (esk) that i've come across.
They allow for greater gains as they calm . Money well spent.

Best for rowing Concept 2

"I needed some type of grip to help spread the force of repetitive pulling on the rowing bar on the Concept 2 rowing machine. I consistently would get blisters on two or three spots on each hand. I looked at several options and this fit the bill. I have tried using this for weight lifting and pull-ups and found the ridges are a little deep for these weight bearing uses as the ridges tend to dig in a little, but for rowing I have not found a better option. These are all rubber so they are super easy to clean, the side facing the bar has grip that looks like a shoe sole and it perfectly distributes the force of the rowing. Just awesome for rowers. Nike you should market this towards that community."

My Nike Training goal is to:Play Div 1
"-When using a chin-ups the grooves on the inside really dig into your hands.
-Putting over gloves still gives grroves and uncomfortable feeling in the fingers.
-It is a good idea but returning mine. Need to wait for the improvement..

Good in theory not so much in use

"These grips do run a little large. I thought these grips in theory felt great but the ridges on the inside of the grip really rip into your hands when training with heavy weights. I had grill marks all over my hands for about a half hour after my work out. Also, the thickness of the grips takes a while to get used to."

"Definitely the best product I've ever added to my workouts...Don't change a thing. I bought two pairs just in case you stop making them. Works best with pull-ups and mainy shrugs because heavy weight starts to slowlly slip out of my hand. I think workout gloves look alittle lame...but these are loose enough to remove after each set...problem solved! If you have a small hand get the mediums so they are alittle loose. You do not want them tight, they might pinch. A+ to Nike!"

Outdoor Pullups Anyone?

"These are great for doing pullups. The only downfall is the part that touches your palm digs a little too much into your skin. The packaging for the grips is very nice. I usually wear XL in Nike gloves, but was fine with a large in these."
