Gym Paws - simple workout glove alternative

Last week we took a look at some workout gloves from Bionic, but this week, we're going to take a look at a very simple alternative, Gym Paws. The idea behind Gym Paws is that they'll protect your hands without being so bulky. Take a look below, and let us know what you think.

Unboxing the Gym Paws
The Gym Paws are very simple in design. They're essentially a patch of leather with four finger loops on the back. Your fingers slide through the loops, and the patch of leather is in your hand. The idea is that any wear and tear will happen to the glove and not your hands.

Trying the Gym Paws
As it turns out, free weights are my favorite workout, and I've got a few different pairs of workout goves already, so this was something I was pretty interested to try out. I bounce between 20's and 25's and the bars have a very rough surface, likely so that you don't slip and drop them, but after a long work out, that rough surface starts tearing apart my hands on their own, not to mention, and sweat and it gets to be a challenge holding onto them. That's where the Gym Paws come in handy.

If you're used to normal workout gloves, they have a very different feel to them, you're not wrapping your hand in anything, just looping four fingers through the elastic loops, but they worked out really well. I was worried that they'd slip off or feel too flimsy, but the leather holds it shape and does grip the weights pretty well. They also offer a light level of padding, so they were pretty comfortable too.

My Conclusion
Gym Paws get the job done. They didn't slip and my hands didn't get torn up after my workout. The Gym Paws are small and light weight, so keeping them on you for a workout really isn't an issue either. Compared to most workout gloves, you'll be saving a few bucks on these too. If you're looking for something simple to help with your workouts, these are a nice affordable solution to keep your hands protected.
