I have a pair of gloves I like, so I would be looking for a wristguard that could fit underneath. Are the R.E.D. wristguards any good?

Thanks, man. I forgot about those. My gloves are shreaded. I need a new pair. I don't wear wrist guards. However, if I am getting new gloves, I might as well get something with some wrist support. I just found a pair on The Internets for $50. Add to cart!

I use the R.E.D. wristguards and wear them underneath my gloves (it is pretty tight though). I chose them because they have the stiff wrist brace on the back of the wrist which I preferred over the Dakine that I saw which had it on the bottom / covering the heel of the wrist. The Dakine (and that style) would likely provide better impact protection imho, but I didn't like how it forced a bent wrist angle and wanted to retain a bit more mobility and use of my hands. I haven't taken any really tough falls on them yet, but am hopeful they'd provide some protection. In any case, they're comfortable enough that I don't mind wearing them.
