Risto Leather Wrist Wraps with metal buckles are made in Maine, USA. These are fantastic for extra support in the snatch and clean and jerk. Unlike canvas or elastic wraps, these will mold to your wrist and become supple, yet strong in about a week.
How to put on your wrists: Thread long tethers through 2 slots in wrap. Pull tethers through and wrap around wrist. Fasten with metal buckles.
I've had these wrist wraps for about 2 weeks now and have used them for about 6 sessions of Sn and CJ. They're comfortable, work as advertised, and plain look awesome. I can leave them on for the entire training session and have used them in heavier, barbell metcons without any problems. As Jeff alluded to, they don't need to be on super tight yet they give support in the range of motion where you'd need it most. One thing I noticed right away is that the leather is quite thin--this leaves me a bit concerned about long term durability. I'd rate these wraps 5 star otherwise. With all that said, I would recommend this product.

Review by Jeff
I love these wraps. I was going through Rogue wrist wraps and they just weren't holding up to the abuse. I had issues with the red wraps popping the stitching and issues with the white wraps' velcro not sticking very well. I threw them away when they popped off in the middle of a heavy C&J. These are a great alternative. The leather molds to your wrist once they're broken in and you don't need to keep them very tight for them to work. They get really tight when your hand is flexed back and give you the support you need. I wholeheartedly recommend this product to anyone who is doing a lot of olympic lifting and not satisfied with other wraps they have tried.
