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.
|XS||Up to 69 pounds|
|S||69 to 115 pounds|
|M||115 to 150 pounds|
|L||150 to 210 pounds|
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 love the zebra and cheeta print paws however in some pictures they appear black and white and in others are more brown and white? Which colour are they really? Thank you!!
The pictures currently on the site are pretty close, although as with any leather product there is some variation from one Paw to the next.

I am 15 yrs. old and about 135 pounds. Should I get the medium?? I'm pretty much done growing.
Are you allowed to wear other than the sand color to compete? Or is sand a good general color to have?
Order the medium Paws.
Sand is the most popular color and widely used for competition, although at some meets any color is OK. Check on the Regulations where you compete.

Great product. My 10 year old gymnast hyper-extended her wrist and was really struggling. We ordered Tiger Paws and she has completely rebounded.

My daughter was always having trouble with her wrists during tumbling and vault. She would miss hours of training time because of it. Her vault was weakening because of her wrist pain. She got tiger paws and says the difference is amazing. She pops off the vault now and has no fear of wrist pain. Many of our team members use them. Great product for serious gymnasts!

My daughter's gymnastics coach suggested a thinner foam pad to still allow some support but more flex. Do you offer thinner foam?
Yes we do. It's a recent addition and we haven't put it in the cart yet. Be aware, some gymnasts use the Paw with no pad as well, just depends on how much support you need!

My daughter is on a competitive allstar cheer team. She is 11 years old and is an advanced tumbler. She tumbles 5 days a week and her wrists have been paying the price. She has extended ligaments in her wrist. She took a break for 3 weeks and then we ordered the tiger paw recommended by a team mate. She is back to tumbling and basing on her team. She loves the tiger paw and has little to no pain since tumbling with it. She is also able to wear the wrist brace @ competitions since it doesn't have any metal. Great!!

My 11 year old is a competitive gymnast who has weak wrists. This product has given her the support and confidence required to move to the next level in competition.
