My Undersun Resistance Band Gloves Review

Hi all, In this post, I take a quick look at my Undersun workout gloves for resistance bands. There is also a video and additional photos below. 

Just a quick note, I'm not a professional, please seek out your local doctor when doing any exercise. I'm also not affiliated with the company.

Are the Undersun Workout Gloves for Resistance Bands?

According to Undersun Canada's website (no affiliation), the workout gloves are made to provide more grip and protect the hands while resistance band training. 


Why Did I Buy the Undersun Workout Gloves for Resistance Bands?

I was training for a few walking events, (very slow 5k, 10k, and walking marathon)  and my core was struggling after walking ten kilometers give or take. I also needed to strengthen my legs because I ruptured both my Achilles tendons between 2010 to 2017. "Sigh." So, to strengthen my core and legs I purchased resistance bands and the Undersun workout gloves. 


What Was My Experience Like With the Undersun Workout Gloves for Resistance Bands? Pros and Cons?

I've had good experiences with the extra padding between the index finger and thumb. The overall padding around the palms has also been good. 

Pros

  • Fit good.
  • Good padding around the palms and areas between the index finger and thumb. 
  • The velcro strap toward the wrists is fine. 
  • Feels comfortable when doing resistance band training. 

Cons

  • They are breathable, but for longer resistance band workouts, my palms get sweaty.
  • Not much use for the touchscreen-friendly feature.


Why Do I Use Gloves for Resistance Bands? 

When I was training without the Undersun workout gloves, the friction from the resistance bands made working out uncomfortable. For example, if I was doing the Palof press with the resistance bands anchored to the door, there would be constant friction on my bare hands pushing the resistance band forward and towards my chest. With the Undersun gloves on, there is extra padding on my hands, making the exercise much more comfortable. 

Another example would be doing bicep curls. In a nutshell, I place the loop-style resistance band under both of my feet and then do a bicep curl. With no gloves on, there is friction in the center of both of my palms. The friction then digs into the areas between my index finger and thumb. With the Undersun workout gloves on, there is extra padding between the areas between the index finger and thumb, making the bicep curl much more comfortable.

If I Lost the Undersun Workout Gloves, Would I Purchase Them Again?

Well, I don't really know of any other workout gloves made for resistance bands so, at this point, yes.  


How Do the Undersun Workout Gloves Fit? Snug or Loose?

I find the Undersun gloves fit snug. When I was purchasing them, intuitively, I thought I would be a medium. After checking the size chart, I was a large. 


What Was the Experience Like on the Undersun Canada Website? 

It was fine, I had no issues. In saying that, I had to check and re-check the size of my hands before purchasing the workout gloves. If I went with my intuition, I would have purchased a medium. That would have been wrong forcing me to return the workout gloves. I no nothing of Undersun's return policy, I didn't need to return anything. Here's a link to the return policy from Undersun Fitness Canada.

Are the Undersun Workout Gloves for Resistance Bands Worth It?

Well, I've owned the Undersun workout gloves since June of 2021 and I've had no major issues with them. The padding on both gloves is holding up fine, and the structural integrity of the gloves is ok. I have not tried using the touchscreen-friendly fabric on my index finger. Overall it's been a decent experience.
