I’ve tried and tested over a dozen different lifting straps including different brands and different styles.
Out of all the straps I’ve tried, these lasso lifting straps from DMoose have been one of my favorites.
In this review, I’ll tell you what I like about them, what I don’t, how they compared to some of the other straps I’ve used and ultimately, if I think you should buy a pair.

Why Trust My Reviews? I’ve spent 20 years as a collegiate sports performance coach and have been lifting personally even longer. I’ve bought and used equipment for both 14,000 square foot weight rooms and for my own garage gym. Finally, I only review products I’ve personally tested.

DMoose Lifting Strap Specs
Weightlifting straps are not exactly the most complicated pieces of equipment. There are really only a couple of strap measurements that you need to take into consideration.
Keep in mind, there is really no better or worse with differences in specs, most come down to personal preference.
|DMoose Lasso Lifting Straps|
Strap Type: Lasso Strap
There are four different types of lifting strap, with the Lasso style being the most common and, in my opinion, the most beginner friendly.
Lasso straps have a very small closed loop that the end of the strap itself fits through. This creates a “hole” for your wrist. The excess strap is then wrapped around the bar.
These are absolutely the best straps for a beginner. If you’ve never used lifting straps, the closed loop (and especially the open loop) straps can be awkward and even a little intimidating. The lasso design is the simplest to learn how to use.
Also, saying they’re great for beginners doesn’t mean that they still aren’t great for advanced lifters as well. If you need a pair of lifting straps for deadlifts, shrugs, rows, etc a good pair of lasso straps work perfectly.
23″* is on the long side, even for a pair of Lasso Straps. The added length allows you to wrap the strap around the bar multiple times.
In theory, this can lead to a more secure grip on the bar. However, in my experience wrapping the strap around the bar multiple times (even more than just once) isn’t really necessary.
I’ve shrugged 500+ pounds many times while having a lasso strap looped around the bar only once without issue.
This is really my only issue with these straps. I wish they were an inch or two shorter, but that’s honestly a minor complaint.
*The website lists these straps as 24″ long, but I took a ruler to mine and came up with 23″ from end to end.
Width: 1 1/2″
An inch and a half on the width is perfect in my opinion (It’s also, by far, the most common width of a lifting strap).
The width helps the strap feel more secure on my wrist and gives me plenty of surface area to grip the bar with.
I always say the same thing when it comes to the price of lifting straps. Most weightlifting straps are going to fall between $10 and $20. Get the pair you want.
A good pair of lifting straps will last you years and years.
My previous pair of lifting straps last me about 10 years. When you take that into account, is it really worth trying to save (literally) a couple of bucks instead of getting the pair you really like? No. Don’t worry about the price here.
My Personal Review
When it comes to lasso-style lifting straps (in my opinion of course) there are 3 categories that they should be rated in:
Basically, do they work?
Lifting straps are meant to do one thing, help the lifter hold onto the bar.
In that regard, these DMoose Straps do their job. If you have the strap tight on the wrist and snug around bar, then these straps will help you hold onto to just about anything. Then it’s your job to actually move the weight.
Durability is honestly tough for me to say because, as I mentioned earlier, a good pair of straps will last for years – plural.
So, having only had these straps for a few months I can’t fully say just how good their durability actually is.
What I can say is they seem to be made of high-quality materials (heavy duty cotton) and are well-made (double-stitched). And, after a couple of months, I’ve had zero issues with them.
I understand that not everyone is okay with their lifting straps leaving marks on their wrists where the strap is digging into them (been there, done that).
These straps come with a 4mm Neoprene padding on the inside of the strap where the strap loops. This makes the straps very comfortable, even with heavy weight. You also shouldn’t have to worry about the straps digging into your wrists and leaving reminders of the shrug sets for the next few days.
Should You Buy Them?
This is the real purpose of checking out reviews, right? To have someone with knowledge, expertise and first-hand experience with the product to give you insight on whether something is a good buy or a waste of money.
Well, I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to buy a pair of lifting straps (especially a beginner buying their first pair) to get a pair of DMoose Lifting Straps.
They’re well-priced, perform great, are easy to use and seem to be (in my limited use so far) very durable.
