Harbinger Big Grip No-Slip Lifting Strap is made from heavy duty nylon. Dura-Grip rubber provides added strength. The 21.5" Dura-Grip rubber strips grab the bar for a "no-slip" grip when lifting. Extended length allows you to wrap the bar several times. Merrowed end tabs help prevent fraying. When using the strap, the rubber strip side must always face the bar.View Size Chart

I have been using this product for a few years now and absolutely love it. On my heavy lifts it has not missed a beat. I have had other types and over 160kg they tend to hurt the wrists. These Harbinger big grip don't. The rubber infused strap has better length than most and does not slip. They help my grip strength when i wrap them and grip over the strap. I have had 200 kg on the bar and they worked well. They do get a bit sweaty as the wrist pad doesn't absorb well but no big issue. i have worn out the rubber strip and now need a new set.....
Great quality and loads of support. Provides support for my wrist while assisting with the bar. Very well put together.
Great product. Solid build. Does get smelly after a while and needs to be washed often.
My husband likes these more than I do, but that's only because I am not as coordinated at wrapping the bar.
Really easy to use. Feel very sturdy when using them even when grip is fatigued. Today I was doing deadlifts, and during the second working set, the bar felt like it was about to fall out of my hands for the last two reps. So I put on the straps and started my new set. It was so easy to hold, and the best part is that I could forget about my grip and just focus on my form and activation of muscle. I'm of the belief that you should only use straps when your grip is failing so that you continue to improve your grip strength, but when you need to use them, these are a great choice.
I've tried this brand twice now - both failed. The first set had one of the straps tear through the stitching and rip off. The second set, the velcro failed on one of the two so it won't stay tight to your wrist. I'm now done with Harbinger brand straps. 0 for 2 means they won't get any more of my money. Switching to Schiek brand.
These straps feature very comfortable and secure wrist straps and a rubberised material on the bar-facing side of the strap that gives excellent traction. However the palm-facing side of the strap is made from some sort of smooth, non-absorbent material that becomes incredibly slippery in contact with the smallest amount of sweat. The end result makes the product (for me) ineffective and positively dangerous. I find the cheap, no-frills straps I got free with an order from Bodybuilding.com far more effective.
I bought these since the store had no stock of Schiek lifting straps. Dang, second day, the end of the strap started to separate. Very disappointed with that. Though I continued to use them but man the rubber padding on the straps just gets glued to the bar that it becomes difficult to rotate the strap over the bar and get it tight. Two design issues harbinger has to address. Even the wrist straps lack quality. I bought Schiek lifting straps after 15 days from the same store and am very happy with them. I don't think I will shop Harbinger products again unless they address the design / quality issues.
Love these straps, best I've ever used. Picked em up locally for 20$ and don't regret it... no issues with the metal buckle biting into my wrist as long as my hand placement and grip is correct. The straps can get a bit hard to hold when I'm super super sweaty but hasn't affected any lifts at all.
I like these more than the tradition strap because they don't pull on your wrist as bad. I only use them on my last sets because my grip starts to go and the muscle still has more left.
