Love these wraps, they're my first pair and they work great for heavy squats and benches. They're really tight without being so tight that I can't move my hands at all, and they allow me to squat and bench heavier loads without having to worry about my wrists bending backwards and suffering pain in them. This in turn makes it easier to lift heavy, because for one, I'm not as worried about being in pain or my wrists breaking, and two, because my wrists are more stable, I waste less energy concentrating on keeping my wrists straight and wrestling with the bar during, say, a triple. My wraps are the 19.5 inch ones and they work great at staying on my tiny wrists. A good order that was well worth the money.
