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.

We have had them a little over a week but so far so good! She tried a friends and they worked great! Her only complaint was we couldn't get any with designs we tried a bunch of different ones for her size and none available every time. You should really update your website and remove those color options if you aren't going to carry them.
Ya, we are trying hard to get thew prints back in. The problem is getting the leather screen printed in a cost effective, durable way.
However, most gymnasts can't use them because of competition rules.

so I have had my tiger paws for about a Year, and they are working awesome! Although the tags have come off, everything else is still in fantastic shape. However, mine are getting slightly small and I was going to order another pair. I was going to get the metallic silver because they match my team's leotards great and where I live we are allowed to compete with colors. Looking at them, however, they look like a different material than the ones I have currently, and they look smoother. I was wondering if they were the same material, and if they would be any more slippery than the normal sand ones. And if they are different material, would I still be able to use them on the beam?
All of the metallic designs are made from leather with a slippery smooth surface attached to it. I'd stay with the sand!

Ordered these in hopes of getting them in about 4 days for a meet my daughter had that weekend - they came within like 2 days! Super quick and she wore them for the first time actually during the meet and still got 1st all-around! So very easily adaptable and great product overall.

My daughter is extremely satisfied with her new tiger paws! She was experiencing wrist pain on tumbling prior to using tiger paws. The first thing she said to me after using tiger paws after training was "Mama they work, I have no pain!" I am impressed with the speedy shipment and definitely recommend this product. Thank you!

My daughter is an All-Star cheerleader. Her orthopaedic recommended Tiger Paws last year after a bout with tendonitis. She wore them for a while but she stopped because they hurt her hand just below her knuckes where it rubs and digs into her hand. We tried using tape, moleskin, and padded moleskin to alleviate the rubbing (helped this) and digging (but not this). We tried experimenting with different foam/plastic insert combos to see if that would help soften them up, but it didn't really and the less support, the less relief she experienced in her wrists. She has not worn them in quite some time time and her wrists have started hurting again. She did experience less wrist pain when she wore them, but I can't get her to wear them if they hurt her. Quote from Becca: "Mom, why would I wear them if they are just going to cause me pain someplace else?" I can't really argue with that. :(
Sorry to hear about this. I suspect others must have had similar issues, but honestly, of the 10's of thousands Paws we've sold, this is the first time I've ever heard this complaint. I would have suggested the things you tried though, good thoughts.

My daughter has tried several different wraps for her wrists to support her tumbling when she's cheerleading . It was recommended to us by a teammate who also uses them and loves them . She tried them out and said that they worked amazingly . Now she continue to participate in the sport she loves

She says they work and support her wrists very well for floor and beam.

Hey tiger paws my coach is recommending me getting these because I have injured my wrists. I'm just letting you know that how long would it take to ship from where these are sold to Australia. I rate this three stars aka average because I've heard good reviews but never tried it. Please reply
Shipping time to Australia can vary a lot. As quick as 10 days, as long as 3 weeks. Customs is beyond our control :-(

I ordered a pair of tiger paws and it only came with the 4 additional plastics, should there have also been 2 extra foams in there? Separate from the ones inside the paws already.
Nope, the only spares that come with new Paws are the plastic inserts, these are the ones that wear out the quickest.

I ordered a pair for my daughter on Monday, and it's Thursday and I have yet to receive an email saying they were shipped. I live in VA, when should they be arriving?
For questions on shipping please call the number listed on the website. Since you did not give me a name of order number there's not much I can tell you here.
