Size: 45lb Verified Purchase
Over the course of 5 months, I got 4 Cap dumbbells (two 25 lbs and two 45 lbs, if you are wondering, I found my 30, 35 and 40 lbs dumbbells at a local Canadian Tire).

Price: Yes, shipping is free, but I found that if you compare the price to what they offer at a competitive local store, it's pricier online by at least 10$. That's probably because shipping costs are directly included in the listed price, which makes sense for an article that is that heavy. Still, you should look around at local stores to see if you can find a similar product for cheaper.

Availability: Maybe it's different where you live, but in my area, it was very hard to find a standard grip compact (no rubber coating)dumbbell at 40 lbs or lighter and there was nothing in the 45+ lbs range (scary, I know) so it was a blessing to find them online, at least for the 45-60 lbs range.

Quality: The 25 lbs dumbbells were perfect. The grip was clean and they were both 25.4 lbs. The 45 lbs dumbbells were a bit more problematic, though nothing too upsetting. First, one was 46.8 lbs and the other one was 47.6 lbs. I'm not too fussy about my dumbbells weighting an exact multiplier of 5, but I do appreciate it when they weight exactly the same, though to be fair, it is only a 0.8 lbs difference (plus I can swap between sets). Equally, the grip had a few bumpy artifacts... nothing that would cause a serious injury, though definitely enough to irritate the hand in the long run. That being said, 3 minutes with a file solved the problem.

So overall, it a great's product with a few minor blemishes. Well worth the money if you can't find it in a local store in your area.

This is precisely what the product looks like — solid metal dumbbells that are neither ergonomic nor uncomfortable, but at a very affordable price. I bought two 10lb dumbbells to use and I like them a lot.

Since I have hardwood flooring I was concerned the metal corners might scratch the finish, so I applied the same self-adhesive felt pads I use under my chair legs to the bottom of each of the dumbbells. When I move on from 10lb exercises I plan on buying the same dumbbells in a variety of weights.

Bought a cheap nice pair of 5lb dumbbells. My only issue is the smell, like previously mentioned in amazon.com reviews. Not sure what the chemical is...

Barbells come wrapped in an alarming health warning:
"WARNING: This product contains one or more chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive harm."
I should have just returned them, but instead decided it couldn't be that serious. However, googling the warning did little to assuage my fears. After a few months of washing hands after every use, I grew too paranoid and disposed of the weights. Bought different ones at local fitness store.

It's exactly what I ordered, an inexpensive simple weight. My only complaint is there were some small metal burrs on the handles that I had to file down prior to use.

I ordered 2 25lb weights, and the best part was the free shipping and watching the ups guy haul them up the stairs to my apt.

The item is sturdy and functional however, the grey metal was not properly coated. The item came promptly, but I noticed that small chunks of the coating one the metal surface had come off and unfortunately, my skin is very sensitive and starts to itch and become red soon after touching the item. I wasn't completely sure what the cause was so I had to test my theory a few times but it was due to exposed parts of the dumbbell where the special coating had come off. In the end I needed to give it to a friend of mine who required dumbbells and had to purchase another pair, this time without any metal on the surface but a soft, foam-like grip completely covering it instead.

Love these hex dumbbells. I work out at home and prefer the hex dumbbells so I don't have to change plates on bars. I already had one 40lb weight, just needed a second.

I prefer these types of dumbbells as those coated with neoprene tend to crack leaving the product unsightly. I got two of these for $10. What a steal!
