Please refer to the table below when determining your correct size for Tiger Paws.
Note: If you are going to use your Paws in gymnastics competition, you need to order the sand color. All other colors will get point deductions!
While sizing is not an absolute thing, this will be the best guide available. If you happen to fall between two sizes, we generally recommend that you choose the larger size.
|XS||Up to 69 pounds|
|S||69 to 115 pounds|
|M||115 to 150 pounds|
|L||150 to 210 pounds|
The most popular gymnastic wrist support is now even better. Tiger Paws are now available in 26 colors & patterns! As always, they have replaceable foam pad supports. XS Paws are shipped with two plastic inserts and two foam inserts, all other sizes are shipped with 4 plastic inserts and two foam inserts. We recommend you order extra inserts now and save on shipping later.
Tiger Paw wrist supports are also available in a water resistant version. It's a favorite with platform divers and anyone who needs wrist support in a wet environment. This new material will work very well for outdoor cheer and tumbling due to it's abrasion resistance. Choose the WaterProof option from the color pull down menu for this product.
For those looking for a color that matches caucasian skin tones our Sand color choice is the best.
A Note About Colored Paws!
First, the bright colored Paws:
We've had some feedback from customers about the color bleeding onto their hands. It's very infrequent, but it does happen. We suspect it is related to levels of perspiration and body chemistry as it happens so seldom.
If you want the colored Paws anyway and encounter problems, we suggest you spray the Paws with Scotch Guard or hairspray. This seems an effective solution to fix the problem.
The animal print Paws are colored using a screen print process. Due to variations in the leather and the printing process, the print can be notably different from the pictures on the site.
Neither of these issues represent a defect in the performance of the Paw! We use only the finest leather available, all from American cows. (Don't laugh, it matters, really! :-) Foreign cows are much less healthy and their hides are full of defects related to these health conditions. This makes the leather unsuitable for our production process)
If this is a concern of yours, please buy the sand colored Paws, our biggest seller by far, or the waterproof model. We do not warranty Paws for color bleeding or inconsistent animal print patterns!

My 11 year old gymnast was struggling with wrist pain on the floor routine. Wrist pain usually makes a gymnast not have proper hand placement, too. Since we've received her Tiger Paws, no more wrist pain and now she has proper hand/wrist placement. Wish I bought these 2 years ago!! Hot Tip--If your gymnast competes, only the Sand (Nude) color is acceptable at competition for USA Gymnastics Competitions

My daughter is a competitive gymnast. In the past year she has suffered from over use injuries in her wrist. The tiger laws have been perfect to eliminate the constant soreness and allowed her to train hard for competition.

They really work - I was having pain in my wrists doing my back handsprings, but since I got the Tiger Paws, no more pain!

Tiger Paws are what every gymnast needs.
Tired of wrist pain - get a pair of these.

My daughter is a competitive cheerleader who had severe wrist pain last year not only does she tumble but also is the base in the stunt group. They diagnosed her with tendentious and suggested tiger paws. They work great, no more pain! I only need to know are these legal with IHSA competitive cheer regulations?
Hi Keri, here's a reply about this from our Tiger Paw site provided by a cheer coach
- Hi Jada, I am a cheer coach for a youth league here in my town. Regarding your question as to whether you can wear a different color during competition, this is a question you need to ask your coach because it depends on who is sponsoring the comp. For example, here we usually go to JAMZ, and they do not allow anything the may be considered a hard "brace." I think this year they have decided that Tiger Paws are ok, but the color really depends on your coach's preference. For my team, I only allow sand because it's not a distraction from a judge's or audience member's point of view.
