I was so excited for these weights to arrive! So much so that the delayed ship date kind of bummed me out, but turns out I didn’t need to worry! The weights shipped the same day I ordered them and they arrived two business days later just like any other Prime item. I got to use these weights for the first time today and I am happy with them. My husband is pretty experienced with weights and he also said they were a nice set. The neoprene felt good to use while my hands were getting sweaty – I could maintain a good grip the whole time. These are my first weights, so as I have nothing to compare them to, here’s a quick description. The blue and teal weights are actually a darker color than they appear in the photo. The grips and lengths on all the weights do vary depending on the weight – the 3 lb grip is thinner than the 5 and 8 lb grips, and the 3 lb weight is shorter than the 5 and 8 lb weights. The grip swells just a bit in the center. I have small hands – I prefer the grip on the smaller weights but even with the wider 8 lb grip, I’m able to get a good enough grip on it. The weights have a seam on them which I noticed a little during the workout but turning the weight a little made it unnoticeable. And again, I don’t have anything to compare it to, so if you do, hopefully the description helps. I will be able to use them for all conceivable workouts, which is the point. I feel like these weights are a really good spread of resistance. I’m a girl, just beginning to do weight resistance so the 3 lb is great for a light weight and the 8 lb is great to challenge me.
As for the rack, it was easy to put together by hand and it was really nice that I didn’t have to go find a power drill or even a screwdriver to put it together, because it comes with everything you need. I was hoping I’d be able to move the weights around on the stand, but it’s a little difficult to do just because there’s so much weight on the stand. Which may be my fault for not being able to carry 32 lbs. Last thing, the stand is actually a bit narrow – when the dog came over to inspect the weights, the stand tipped over. I haven’t found any dumbbell sets that come with a sturdy stand though, so I’d make a purchase just based on the weights.
I was just very excited to find a 32 lb set for such a good price. It was at least $12 cheaper than all the other sets on Amazon, which made the purchase easy. I would recommend these weights.
I love this purchase! The dumbbells were exactly what I was looking for and the price was fantastic. I priced these at a local store and would have paid almost 3X’s what this set cost me for an almost identical item. The neoprene material is perfect for getting a good solid grip and the size of the dumbbells is perfect for my size. I am a 5’2″ small-framed female and wanted something that would not be too long or bulky to work out with for my smaller hands. We already owned a set of dumbbells that my husband purchased but I found them difficult to use because of the width of them. This set was perfect for my smaller hands.
The item description was very accurate and I am extremely pleased with my purchase.
The stand was cute but not very functional in my honest opinion. It went together just fine and did hold the weights but I don’t see it being something I will keep mine stored on as I use them daily and it is easier to just keep them lined up near my mats. I didn’t purchase the weights for the stand though so wasn’t too worried about that anyway.
I would recommend this product and give it 5 stars! It is one of my best purchases so far on Amazon.

The weights have a confluence on them which I notice
