Consumer Review
Yes, it is great.
I just got the ab straps a couple of days ago and they do come with the carabiners and my feet do not drag on the floor with my knees bent (I still have maybe 3″ of clearance; I’m 5′ 10″ and the door frame is 6′ 5″).

2. Durability is just average, a new bar with a rough grip will make the straps to fray a little.

To compare to other products these straps are slightly thicker and longer then the 100% cotton Everlast straps. I use these straps 3 days a week for moderate…

Title : Altus Athletic Padded Lifting Straps

This high quality foam padded strap provides a secure comfortable grip of weight bars during exercise. The added safety provided by this strap allows for increased repetitions during sets while helping minimize hand fatigue.
Great Product, Even Better Price
There are many similar products as these lifting straps, but these are the best price. They are well made, and the padding is an extra bonus. Other straps sell for the same price without padding, so this was a no-brainer.
