These gloves work great for bands. The grip is excellent. The gloves are well made and appear like they will last awhile. However, they are tight to take off and on. I ordered a large and can usually fit in medium gloves. Further, these gloves do not work well with smart phone screens. So if you need to access or change your smart phone have to take one glove off. Since I like to listen to music or podcasts while working out it is slight hassle to keep doing during a (90) minute workout. I would highly recommend as other gloves I have had the bands just tore them apart after one month.
