Product Review: Liftcorp Apparel Urban Wrist Wraps

A while ago I wrote a blog post about the HORRENDOUS service I received from Liftcorp Apparel (the company that makes these wrist wraps)…this was the product I was waiting for. Definitely give that post a read if you haven’t already, because it somewhat prefaces what will be said here.

After feeling that my wrists needed more support, I was on the hunt for some wraps. I somehow came across Liftcorp Apparel’s site and was pleasantly surprised to see that their wraps were only just over $16.00. Since they’re based in Australia, they use AUD, however CAD is pretty much on par so I really wasn’t paying extra for it. After waiting forever for these wraps to come, they finally came and I was able to try them out for a while before writing this review. Here’s what I have to say about it:

-The only pro to these wraps are that they support my wrist pretty well

-I’m a newbie to the wrist-wrap world so I don’t know if this is supposed to happen, but the thumb loop digs into my thumb like crazy. To the point where I have to unwrap between sets so it doesn’t rub my thumb raw

You can see here where it digs in.

-One of the wraps is already falling apart! The stitching seems to have come out on one wrap where the velcro attaches to the wrap

Where the loose thread is is where the velcro is starting to detach.

I’m pretty disappointed by this product. I honestly wish I just took my money elsewhere. I’d even be ok with paying more than I did. Anyone have any recommendations?

Running Fast, Lifting Heavy Approved: definitely not.

  1. I use weight lifting gloves with wrist wraps by Nordic Lifting, which I found on Amazon. No thumb issues because the gloves and wraps are all in one. Not sure if you want individual wraps with no gloves, but maybe something worth looking at.
