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|

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 am a 12 year old level 6/7 gymnast, and these save me from so much pain every time I use them. I had been having pretty severe wrist pain for quite a few months, and I finally went with tiger paws. My tumbling was really starting to go downhill, and with these tiger paws I can start working harder tumbling passes again. I am at gym 9 hours a week, and at the end of the week I am usually still surprised that my wrists don't hurt.
I have not had these for very long, but so far they seem to be made very well and are great at doing their job! Thank you for this product!

What size do I get? I'm a 13 year old gymnast and I weigh about 115 pounds. That means I should be a medium, but I have HUGE hands. What size?
Also - Do they offer a money back guarantee if they don't stop your wrist pain?
You're at the bottom end of the medium range, stay with a medium.
We do not have a money back guarantee. See the store policies page for refunds and exchanges - http://www.tigerpawwristsupports.com/shipping-exchanges-and-returns/
HOWEVER, if you read through the reviews on this product, having Paws not help with wrist pain simply does not happen. This product does what it's designed to do, help with wrist pain associated with the hyperextension of the wrist joint.

Finally having to order a 2nd pair of Paws! As a competitive gymnast and now allstar cheerleader, my daughter has tumbled 4 days a week for 8 years. When her wrists began to ache, we ordered Tiger Paws and her pain was gone. That was four years ago! She has worn her paws four days a week for four years and they are just now starting to break down in the thinnest part that crosses the palm and that's through multiple hand washings as well! Great quality! Love this product!

I am 11 years old gymnast. Weigh 67lbs. Hurt my wrist and my coach suggested Tiger paws. What size should I get? X-small or small?
Since you are right on the line between XS and Small, and still growing, I'd go with the small. You'll get many years of use from your Paws that way!
P.S. - Come back and let us know how they work for you after you've had a chance to wear your Paws for a while!

how long would it take for Paws to get to OH, USA if we ordered them after 3:00 PM EST on a Sunday, and we used the $7 shipping option (I thing it was Priority Mail?). I have a tumbling class on Tuesday and practise on Wednesday. THANKS!!!!!!!!!!
Priority mail is pretty fast these days. If the model you picked is in stock it should ship out today. But it will still take 3-4 days to get there.

Daughter was complaining of wrist pain when tumbling so her coach suggested Tiger Paws. They worked great!!!! My daughter said that the pain in her wrist was gone when wearing the Tiger Paws for tumbling.

I am thinking of ordering a pair of Mudra Paws for yoga, I have mild carpel tunnel and any extension of my wrists in weight bearing positions are really quite painful, with the discomfort lasting for 24-36 hours. I weight 148lbs, should I get the M or L? Have you had good feedback from fellow yogis?
Appreciate your time,
I'd stay with the medium. Our Mudra Paw sales have been climbing steadily.
While we haven't had a lot of feedback specifically from yogis, I'd say about 98% of people who try Paws for pain issues as you describe, from all sorts of activities, get fast pain relief. Please come back and let us know how they work for you, I'm certain you will be happy!
Be aware Paws need to be broken in for a few hours before the soften up and get comfortable.

I use a tiger paw at my gym and I use it with the insert side on my palm and my coach said to use them the other way but it hurts my wrists even worse to use it insert side up so is it okay to use them with the plastic under my wrist or will I look like an idiot.
P.S. I'm going to try to use them at my meet on Sunday.
Your coach is correct! Inserts go on the back side of the hand. If the plastic insert is hurting your wrist, make sure it's between the foam and the outside of the paw, not inside of the foam. If that doesn't help, try the Paws with no plastic inserts. You may not need them. Some people use their Paws with no inserts at all. Experiment and see what works best for you.
Having the inserts on the palm side of your hand will not provide good support for your wrist during hyper extension.
