Purpose – Stabilize The Wrist
Features – Strechy Material and Locked In Thumb Loop
Specs – See Overview
Overall Rating – 9/10
Wrist wraps can be a great tool for weight training, they work by limiting wrist movement, therefore aiding in wrist stability. I personally have the wrist wraps from Rogue Fitness and find them quite valuable for high rep max effort sets, as well as when I’m handling heavyweights. This is because they keep my wrists locked in which helps to keep my form consistent when fatigued.
This review will contain an overview, a rating on durability, performance, appearance as well as a closing opinion. Let’s get into the article!
The Rogue Wrist Wraps come in 6 different colours (I have the red and black), they are 3 inches wide and come in 3 different lengths of 12, 18, and 24 inches. The prices are $12.75, $15.75 and $18.75 respectively. They are made of elastic, polyester and cotton (40%, 10%, 50%) and feature a hook and loop thumb closure. Overall, Rogue has a great variety for a solid price with these wrist wraps!
Durability is key when it comes to any product, this is because no matter how good a product performs or looks, it won’t do you much good if it doesn’t last, that’s why durability is at the top of the list!
At first, the Rogue Wrist Wraps don’t seem like they would be the most durable because of the stretchiness of the material. However, the material and structure of the wrist wraps have held up quite nicely for me over the past 10 months, and they still look like they have a lot of life left in them! The only sign of breakdown I have noticed is some threads and fuzziness that are apparent, however, it is not affecting the structure or performance of the wrist wraps at this point in time. I have seen better stitching and structure on the seams of other wrist wraps, though.
See the below picture for a look at the current condition of my wrist wraps:
Overall, I would give the Rogue Wrist Wraps an 8/10 on durability because of how well they have held up overall for the past 10 months, and how I expect to be able to get quite a bit more use from them. The threads and fuzziness that is showing are why they didn’t receive an even higher rating for durability.
When looking for a product, you always want to find the one that will perform best for your needs. For this reason, I will be including a detailed performance review so you can see if the Rogue Wrist Wraps are right for you!
It is important to first know what this product is supposed to accomplish, which involves keeping the wrist stable by limiting movement. This is done by wrapping it around your wrist. Also, with these wraps, a thumb loop pulls and locks the thumb back which helps with wrist stability as well. These 2 methods work well together to keep the wrist locked in and stable!
The Rogue Wrist Wraps have a stretchier material which allows for a slight amount of wrist flexion. However, I personally don’t mind this as I like to have a little bit of “wiggle room” to allow my wrists to get into proper positioning. The wraps still provide an ample amount of stability. If you want more stability and less wrist flexion (something I prefer for certain movements such as a heavy bench press), you can always wrap them a bit tighter, I find this gives me a fair amount of added stability. Please note, do not wrap them deathly tight as you don’t want them squeezing so hard it cuts off the blood flow and makes your hands go numb. You just want to reap the stability benefits of this product.
I feel like the thumb loop closure could have been made a bit stiffer so it could hold the thumb in a more locked in position. This would add stability to the wrist without affecting the wrist flexion that I personally prefer.
Overall, I would give the Rogue Wrist Wraps a 9/10 on performance as I like the ability to get your wrists in the right position while maintaining stability. In addition to that, I like the ability to create even more stability by wrapping them a bit tighter. The only reason they did not receive a 10/10 is the room for improvement with the thumb loop closure.
Let’s be honest, appearance isn’t the main thing we’re looking for when it comes to purchasing products for the gym. However, we might as well buy something that we like the looks of! Let’s find out if these wrist wraps are as eye-catching as the durability and functionality!
The Rogue Wrist Wraps come in 6 different colours which gives you tons of variety to pick your favourite colour, or one you think looks good with the product design. Speaking of design, these wraps feature a simple, yet nice looking layout with a dual colour striped pattern with different widths of the stripes. These attributes give the wrist wraps a sleek yet eye-catching design. They also feature the Rogue brand on them which adds to the look. It’s always nice when buying a quality product from a well-known brand to have the branding on the product!
I would give these a 7/10 on appearance because of the clean and nice-looking design. They don’t feature anything special in regards to their appearance which is why they didn’t receive a higher score.
Overall the Rogue Wrist Wraps are a great product! They are durable while maintaining great function with a stretchy yet stable and supportive material. The variety of colours and a nice looking appearance makes it easy to pick a pair you will love the looks of!
If you’re looking for a very rigid and stiff wrist wrap, I would suggest looking into another pair that would tailor to these wants. Although the wear on the wraps is minor, if you don’t mind spending a little extra money, I am sure you could find ones with a bit better quality.
All in all, the Rogue Wrist Wraps are a great product! I would give them an overall rating of 8/10 and suggest this product to anyone looking for a versatile wrist wrap that you can use for just about anything! If you are interested, you can check them out at the link below!
