Before purchasing these wrist supports, I tried on several competing brands. I found that those with a cinch, through which the strap is passed and the strap tightened before securing with the velcro, are far superior to those with velcro alone. These have the cinch and I can tighten them almost to the point of cutting off circulation. I choose not to make them quite that tight. The tighter the wrap, the better wrist support provided.
The material used in these supports is about .25 inches thick and that is thicker than other products I've tried. They are also wider than most supports. The craftsmanship is outstanding.
I purchased a pair each for my teenage son and I. We lift fairly heavy and both of us were experiencing wrist soreness. No longer. Additionally, both of us have found that, with proper wrist support, we are able to lift heavier on the bench presses (flat, incline, and decline) than we can without the supports.
Neither of us have big wrists. I would say our wrists are between small to medium for guys. Yet these work just perfect. The color is black, not green as shown in the picture but really, who cares. We wear them to help us in the gym, not as fashion statements. My son is using his now in football off-season workouts and many of the other players rushed out and bought their own after experiencing the difference these supports make for weightlifting. We couldn't be more pleased. Official Amazon reviwe of Schiek Sports Ultimate Wrist Supports. Click for additional reviews.
