What are they?

A pair of half-glove looking Fitness Gloves from Fit Four called "The Neo Grip Glove". With hundreds of reviews and an average 4.3 star rating on Amazon I was intrigued to see if they could be a nice choice for my WODs.


Quality

The grips are made of 90% neoprene with 10% silicone to prevent slipping. The neoprene is soft and doesn't feel restricting. The material combined with the fact that they only cover the upper part of the palm gives you a really close feeling to whatever tools you're using (bar, kettlebells, dumbbells, etc). To me, it makes the gloves feel a bit "squishy" in a not so great way. I prefer grips with a sturdier feel, so if you're the same, that's something to take into consideration.


Fit

Use the size guide provided by the seller to find your best fit. I found them really snug I so recommend sizing up.


Performance

They are marketed as versatile fitness gloves for yoga, gymnastics and cross training. Personally I think they are a great choice for rowing and kettlebell exercises in which the silicone dots prove their worth. When it comes to pull-ups, chin-ups and heavier lifting however, they get a bit too squishy. Some reviewers even reported issues with them ripping when using heavier weights.


All in all, I think these are a good choice for WODs with lighter weights, kettlebell work, and gymnastics. Overall though, I prefer a grip with more palm protection and wrist support.
