I bought mine from Rogue but they're made for Rogue from Strength Wraps: WFS

I've had them for like four months and use them fairly often (I have weak wrists, sprained them a lot as a kid) and they're just as good as day 1.

I don't generally use them for front squats (I see no need there) and I wouldn't put them on just for HSPUs. Mostly for snatches, jerks, presses of any kind. If I have a WOD with multiple movements I'll just quickly loosen them or tighten them while transitioning.
