Rated 4 out of 5 by Turbo Mama Love the gloves
I'm sorry to hear that people have been so dissatisfied with these gloves. I've had mine for about five years. No seams have come apart, no sand has come out, and the velcro still holds through a 45- to 50-minute workout without any problems.
I do wear the weight on my palm because I feel like it gives me better control. I have large hands for a woman and I found them tight at first, but the fabric stretched somewhat after a short period of time and I find them quite comfortable now.
Overall, I've been very happy with the product and the results I've achieved with them. They definitely take a workout to the next level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ammaximus Awesome product
I don't know why other people don't seem to like these gloves. I have used these gloves at least a hundred times, and that is a really short estimate. I completed all of the TurboJam calender twice plus the TurboFire calender twice with these gloves and they are still awesome. The velcro still sticks as well as it did when I first used them...even after the gallons of sweat that they've been saturated in...and I HAVE washed them and they've been just fine. These gloves are awesome and I would highly recommend them.

I love my gloves! I bought mine in 2009 and they are in mint condition! I have washed them in a pillow case several times and they work!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sunniday62 Not the best gloves
I have had them 2 years, but the velcro will not hold any longer. I have only used them maybe 30 times. Trying to find slide on ones, but no luck so far.

I got my first pair of these some 5 years ago, when I first got into Turbo Jam, and although they do look disgusting, they don't smell and have not fallen apart. No problem with the Velcro either.
When I bought TurboFire I got a new pair, and these are absolutely terrible. After using them for the first time, I took them off just to see sand on both my palms. I guess more recent batches are poorer in quality.
In any case, I like it that they actually provide a great extra workout for the arms, and I'm used to them to the point that the unbalanced weight doesn't bother me anymore, but I do have to wear them with the weighted part on my palms or they'll shift during punches and make movements weird. I also don't like the fact that they're really really small. I have very slim hands and still they feel tight, and it's hard to grasp things with the gloves on (I drink a lot throughout the workout and I keep dropping my bottle all the time because grasping it is so difficult).

Mine haven't fallen apart but that may be just because I can't stand wearing them so they don't stay on long. I want the gloves that Chalene has in the TJ videos, not these ones that look like a bum. It's impossible to get them on tight and then they slide around.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mommyturbo They fall apart easy.
They fall apart so easily and I wound up with the sand pellets everywhere. Besides they stink from sweating and can't be washed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by skorpia your gonna have to replace every few years
Depending on how much you beat up your gloves and how much your love em these babies simply fall apart from wear and tear. I agree with people complaining that they come apart fast,My problem is that I have huge hands and the fingers are too close for me and I ripped the seam already. I use these when I jog and I feel it on my sides.I really wish they would use hooks instead of velcro,Not only is it impssible to put on it wears out fast, On top of that the sand leaks,

I had to send them back multiple for falling apart. The sand leaks quickly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by leweber Have to replace after a year
Love using the gloves with my workout, but unfortunately after only a year they have worn out. The velcroe won't hold well, the fabric has stretched and the sand is falling out of one through the seams.
