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. This Tiger Paw is 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, a few days ago we recieved an actual letter through the mail from a happy young girl. 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.
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! We use only the finest leather available, all from American cows. (Don't laugh, it matters, really! :-) Foreign cows are much less healthy and their hides are full of defects related to these health conditions. This makes the leather unsuitable for our production process)
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!

Daughters have used before. Very durable and long lasting

The Tiger paws are rather stiff to start with and give blisters. Not sure if a good idea to soak them first or treat them somehow to avoid this. Not pleasant to use.
Like any leather product, Paws need to be broke in. Do not soak them! After 5-6 hours of use they will soften up. You can also use them without the inserts in the beginning and put them back in as the Paws soften up.

I'm on a tumbling team. I started out the season without any wrist support (this is my first year). I bought some cheap wrist support to see how that worked. When I used it my wrists still hurt while I was doing stunts, but not afterward. I just wore my tiger paws for the first time and am COMPLETELY pain free and was throughout the whole two hour practice. So glad I made the investment because my wrists are worth it!

My daughter has the tan pair for competition and would love a pink pair with zebra stripes for practice. She wears an extra small and I notice that you are currently out of them. Will you be replacing that item any time soon?
We are in the process of finding a new leather source for the fancy Paw styles, not an easy task. I don't expect we will have your request back in stock for a few more weeks, sorry... :-(

My daughter has 2 pairs of Sand coloured tiger paws, and she loves them. No issues with those. She wanted a teal coloured pair. We recently bought it, and discovered to our dismay that the teal colour runs. By the end of training at first use, her hands were a bright teal colour!! Disappointing.
Take the inserts out and run them through the wash once. Pat them with a towel and lay out to dry, not in direct hot sun. This happens in some cases. You can also spray scotch guard on them after you wash and dry.
