Tiger Paws are sold in Pairs! Please refer to the table below when determining your correct size for Tiger Paws.
Note: If you are going to use your Paws in gymnastics competition, you need to order the sand color. All other colors will get point deductions!
While sizing is not an absolute thing, this will be the best guide available. If you happen to fall between two sizes, we generally recommend that you choose the larger size.

The most popular gymnastic wrist support is now even better. Tiger Paws now come in colors. As always, they have replaceable foam pad supports. XS Paws are shipped with two plastic inserts and two foam inserts, all other sizes are shipped with 4 plastic inserts and two foam inserts. We recommend you order extra inserts now and save on shipping later.
Tiger Paws are also available in a water resistant version. It's made from a synthetic non-skid, abrasion resistant material. It's a favorite with platform divers and anyone who needs wrist support in a wet environment. Choose the "Waterproof" option from the color pull down menu for this product. Currently available in black only.
As you can see below, we get tons of great reviews and comments from happy customers. However, one in particular which we recieved through the mail from a happy young girl said it well. To have some one take the time to write an actual letter was very special for us, so I thought I'd feature it here for you to enjoy.
"Dear US Glove:
My name is Annie Trentman and I am a seventh grade gymnast in Salt Lake City, Utah. Gymnastics is
my sport. I have enjoyed it ever since I was six years old and don’t plan to stop it anytime soon. I have
just qualified to level seven and hope to keep going well into my older years. I do gymnastics four hours
a day, five days a week and each day my wrists feel worse and worse and it has begun to affect my
I have decided to write this letter to you to thank you for my Tiger Paws. Ever since I got my Tiger Paws,
my wrists have become less sore over the days. I have made continual progress in my tumbling because
of your product. Tiger Paws make my wrists feel like all of the weight that used to be on them has been
taken off and put somewhere else, I do not know where. Because of your Tiger Paws, my wrists are now
strong enough to do more complex tumbling passes without the usual pain.
Thank you again for selling me this product; they really have been a big help in my gymnastics ability.
Even though some people think it is impossible for a product that any company has sold to actually
improve somebody’s ability in anything; they’re wrong. Your Tiger Paws took away my pain, which
helped me to be more comfortable with my tumbling."
"Thanks Annie, we're glad our Paws helped you!"
A Note About Colored Paws!
First, the bright colored Paws:
We've had some feedback from customers about the color bleeding onto their hands. It's very infrequent, but it does happen. We suspect it is related to levels of perspiration and body chemistry as it happens so seldom. If you want the colored Paws anyway and encounter problems, we suggest you spray the Paws with Scotch Guard or hairspray. This seems an effective solution to fix the problem.
Fancy Paws: The animal print Paws are colored using a screen print process. Due to variations in the leather and the printing process, the print can be notably different from the pictures on the site. Neither of these issues represent a defect in the performance of the Paw. If this is a concern of yours, please buy the sand colored Paws, our biggest seller by far, or the waterproof model. We do not warranty Paws for color bleeding or inconsistent animal print patterns.

I weigh 170 pounds but I have extremely small hands and wrist to the point that people actually comment on how small they are. According to the size chart, I need a size large but usually when it comes to do with anything being worn on my hands/wrist I get a size extra small. What size should I get? Medium?
I'd stay with the large. I Paw a tad too big will support you just fine. We had a past Olympic gymnast who wore Paws way bigger than she sized for, but she still won medals - who are we to criticize?
But if the Paw is too small, you might not get enough overlap in the straps to secure the Velcro. Also, a larger Paw engages more of the hand/wrist area, providing better support for larger people.

Hi! I was a competitive gymnast for 4 years and then switched to cheer at my school. I have been having problems with a lot of wrist pain while tumbling on the gym floors. My pt said that I need to look into wrist supports and I wondered if these would be a good choice. Also, would it be better if I went with the waterproof in case I tumble outside?
Yes & Yes! :-)
Waterproofs will definitely be better for outdoor use. Paws are widely used for exactly the problem you describe. Try a pair and come back and let us know how they worked for you, I don't think you'll be disappointed!

Ive been in cheer for 2 years and always have wrist pain, my physical therapist recommended i look into these. Will i still be able to do everything throughout cheer with them on? And when would the aqua or teal leopard tiger paws become available?
Thanks! Cant wait to get some.
We sell a lot of Paws into the Cheerleading so yes, they will not prevent you from doing your various stunts etc. They will help a lot with the wrist pain though! :-)
As far as our out of stock on the animal print models, we don't expect these to be back soon. There are supply issues with the printed leather, sorry!!

I am a level 6 gymnast and I have had trouble with my wrist. Beam hurts because for backwalkovers and backhandsprings you put alot of weight on your hands. So as I was saying, what type should I use for beam help so they wont slip?
Most gymnasts go with the sand colored Paws and we haven't heard of problems with slippage on the beam. If you were concerned about slipping the waterproof models do provide extra grip.

First I have 2 questions. How long would it take for it to arrive? And my wrist keeps hurting and I have a meet soon, would it help in time? Thank you so much.
Shipping in the U.S. typically takes 3-5 days. Many people get pain relief as soon as they start wearing their Paws.

These tiger paws have saved my life I broke my wrist end of 5 th grade and that summer was starting team. My coach suggested these my wrist are really bad and I would have never been able to do gymnastics ever again without these I'm in 9th grade now and I just got done ordering my 2ed pair because my first pair is just old I think they lasted a long time 3 full seasons that's worth it to me I had the sand ones and now I'm getting the waterproof I just love your product I don't know what I would have done without it I went from level 3 to now silver there is no way I could have excelled so well without your product!! Tiger paws are life

My daughter is 11 and has been battling wrist discomfort from higher level skills for some time. We are on our second set of Tiger Paws that have provided her the support she needs allowing her to feel more comfortable! It's a WIN-WIN!!
