Dumbbells arrived individually double boxed. Interior boxing was from CAP, secondary boxing appeared to be typical Amazon.
Each dumbbell had "25" embedded in the rubber coating on each end. No other identifiable markings were on the product. No "CAP" designation other than the packaging which also states "Made in China".
The dumbbell is sturdy as it should be, the contoured grip fits nicely into my palm and the texture is sufficient enough to maintain a non-slick grip. My wife states that the texture is too rough, that is debatable. The dumbbell has a slight odor to it, a rubber/chemical smell which is not overpowering and I'm sure will wear off over time.
UPDATE #1: After 2 nights sitting in the garage, on foam/rubber exercise flooring, the dumbells left an oily residue where they made contact with the flooring (see picture)
The one criticism I do have is that the poundage markings are not colored in contrast on the black rubber. This, I foresee to be more of an annoyance when stored next to 20s or 30s. Nothing a home remedy can't fix though.
Overall, great value in my opinion for the price, now to find some 35s on sale.
UPDATE #2: I've since picked up a few other sets of the CAP brand dumbbells as I feel they are of good value. I did notice one additional criticism on the 25's though... the numbering alignment is off. Meaning, all of the numbers on my other sets are read from the outside of the dumbbell in... on the 25s its read from the inside out (or upside down if you will). I quickly picked up on this when racked with others.
We have a collection of different dumbbells in our studio, including the solid hex dumbbells also sold by Cap, and we made the decision to go with the rubber coated hex dumbbells going forward. They are comfortable in the hand (not too unreasonable to grip as a small woman, though I wish we could find slightly smaller handles), have a nice aesthetic, and feel a bit classier/fancier than those not coated with rubber. They are more forgiving when racking and moving about as I have personally smashed both kinds into my hip bone and would choose the rubber for that any day.
However, the dumbbell that came in the intact box arrived defective. See my photo attached - the rubber part of the weight was too far down one end of the handle. If held in the center of the grip, the weight was off-balance, which is potentially very dangerous when approaching a max chest press with this weight. I contacted CAP directly per Amazon that very day December 13th. I explained the issue and provided some information. On December 20th they sent me an order and tracking number for my replacement weight and it arrived December 27th. This time the box was completely covered in packing tape and 100% intact (I had made note to them the previous package arrived falling apart). The is dumbbell was perfect and we are excited to have a set in the studio.
While the defective dumbbell was inconvenient, I have given a 5 star review because we are very happy with the product, especially for the cost (very economical), and I am very pleased with the customer service in correcting the defect (and no, we did not have to ship 50lbs back to them!) I expect to buy more products in the future from this company as needed. Just make sure you check your order for any defects before use.
I would however recommend that if you are keeping them in your house to put them on top of a rag or something you don't mind getting dirty because they can and most likely will stain your carpet or scuff your floor with the black material they are made of. Just something to be mindful of if you workout in your living room.
