Anyone have any recommendations for weightlifting gloves? I know underarmour makes nice ones for women but I saw a pic on instagram of them all ripped up after one use

What gloves do you guys own and do you recommend them?

    I've been using reebok ones from target for several months and they've held up fine. My callouses still hurt though, so I've been thinking about trying a new brand.

    Mine are Nike which I picked up at TKMaxx. I had some pretty rough callouses but the gloves are nicely padded and my callouses are barely noticable now.

    It got to the point where I couldn't pick up a dumbbell without experiencing pain. I lift heavy and damn proud of it!

    Anyway used my gloves twice now and I love them I got them in a womens large because I'm built like a box but maybe next time I will get mens small or medium gloves but most women don't have hands like mine.

    I found it weird that the harbinger ones were the only ones at sport check that had padding along the top of the palm, under all the fingers, the other womens ones just had the pointer and middle finger padded which is weird because i think the worst callouses are under the small fingers.

    Yup my worst ones are under my 2nd and third fingers, not heavy enough for it to hurt that much yet, but I'll get there

    Since you all have these gloves I was wondering if anyone could message me if theirs are NOT made in china? Thanks so much! I'm looking for a pair but it's hard to find things sometimes :)

    i'm cheap :) - i use my "used" dirtbike gloves / street bike gloves - i just cut the tips out of the fingers.
    riding gloves are great b/c they are usually (if not cheap) made of durable material, that would withstand a crash (palms down)...

    Femme Fetale gloves. They look girly but are comfortable and durable.

    I now only use my Versa Gripps which can be bought online. I have torn apart so many pairs of normal gloves that i finally made the switch to my current ones. They are much different looking that traditonal gloves but let me tell you they allow me to life alot heavier inthe gym. I suffer from issues with weak wrists so the versa gripps really help out with that.

    I just bought a new pair of Nike ones. The material is fake leather which Ilike much better than the old Nike cloth ones I had. Should wear better as well.

    I have harbingers too, but I can't remember the last time I wore 'em. I just have calluses. I remember it was difficult to find some small enough for me. Wish my hips took after my hands!!
