Leather straps have always been my favorite for weightlifting, deadlifts, and pulling motions. These straps are handmade and will over time wear into the shape of your wrist. These straps are meant to be with you for years. We left them with a natural veg tan as well. They will darken and patina over time with the oils form your skin and sweat. Limited lifetime warranty on them as well. As long as you didn't destroy them being a dingus we will replace them.
