These are the same Animal Lifting Straps that you saw Animal unveil at the 2008 Mr. Olympia. 100% heavy-duty canvas lifting straps. 1.5" wide by 22.5". If you're looking to move heavy weight on pulling movements without your grip giving out, these will get the job done. Great for shrugs, rows, dead lifts, farmer walks, and more... These are the real deal.
Ratings & Reviews
I love Animal products. High quality and great company ethos. I use lifting straps for heavy sets -- rows, deadlifts, even false grip bench. I was excited to find a pair of straps longer than the standard 19". These are extra big to really make the grip comfortable. My first set of straps broke on the third set of deadlifts, @ only 315lbs. I thought that was strange, maybe weak stitching. I bought another set hoping to have a different experience. Nope, they broke after only a few sets of rows. Very disappointing. If the stitching at the loop were better, I'd not only recommend -- these would be the only straps I ever use. As they are, I couldn't really use them for anything.
So far so good!
Work very well and great price.
It does the job
Worked amazingly well for 3 months.. then tore..
These straps were shipped along with my animal pak. I was pretty cheered once I got em, but I was alot more disappointed once I used em. At the very first day of use in my deadlift, I noticed that they start ripping of...and guess what??? They were all gone on the 4th day... I am not going to rate this item at 1, because I got it free along with my animal pak. And personaly speaking, I dont know if I am the only one who had faced this... :-(
I had the opportunity to own a pair of these straps long enought to use a few times. Actually thes straps were very comforting. They gripped the thread of the bar just perfectly, or it was my hands. All and all they are great. Someone stole mine tho.
Good straps for heavy weight
The pictures of these straps are misleading. I thought the words were stitched onto the straps but its actually on a piece of fabric, and the fabric is stitched on. The fabric was already fraying out of the packaging. It just looks cheaply made. If you want good straps, stick to the harbingers.
This product is good, it does what it needs to do.
These straps do their job and that's it. The sides and ends are stitched which, in theory, extends the life of these straps. The only reason they don't get a 10 is because they aren't padded, yet they cost as much as padded straps from another manufacturer.
Definitely very sturdy strong straps no complaints
Get the job done, but needs more stitching for reinforcement.
