I've had these wraps for around 9 months or so, since deciding to train/compete as a strongman and I must say these wraps are a great support whilst going heavier than you're used to going. They also seem to give a psychological advantage (to me anyway) in the lift, you kinda know, if you've gone slightly heavier than you should (we all have), that you're not gonna explode your knees into physio. As with all the other strength shop products you know you're getting good quality and its not gonna drop to bits within a week. The elasticity in these wraps allow you to tighten the wrap between quite loose up to numb lower leg depending on the weight across your back. I'd say these wraps are a good moderate starter on your way to the thors, a very good price for what you are getting.
