As a long time instructor/trainer of practical and functional fitness, I’m very happy to see a company like Set for Set expanding their line of equipment.
Let’s get right to it!
My initial assessment is as follows:
Quality - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
The stitching, thickness, length, resistance - all very well thought out, as I’ve come to expect from a Set for Set product.
Function - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Performs exactly as suggested and intended. No rolling or curling of the edges, no sliding on bare legs or clothing & no pinching of skin or pulling of hair (yes, I forced my wookie-like nephew to try the bands for the “hair pull” test)
Durability - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (early assessment)
While I haven’t had the opportunity to run them through repeated stress testing, their construction is sound & it’s highly unlikely that they will fail before you get your money’s worth, which brings me to my next criteria.
Value - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
These are not the only hip bands on the market. With that in mind, the Set for Set hip bands are an excellent deal, especially considering their quality compared to the competition.
The Pro’s - As stated above, they’ve hit all the marks with these bands that you could hope for.
The Con’s - None!
While there truly isn’t any to speak of at this point, I tried to think of scenarios where these bands wouldn’t perform, and while the length and resistance of these bands cover the vast majority of body shapes, in future iterations, would there be a possibility to consider a smaller/larger version or an adjustable version? Just something to consider, and undoubtedly another product I’d be purchasing from my favorite functional fitness equipment company.
Final Thought: This is one of the most affordable, and practical tools for your fitness arsenal. Ideal for travel or home use, and fitness facilities of any size.
I hope this “short” review helps anyone considering adding hip bands to their fitness routine. Never stop improving!
