Most of what I wrote for my kettlebell buyer’s guide in 2014 still applies today. There are some notable additions however.
AmazonBasics Cast Iron Kettlebells
My favorite kettlebells are the Dragon Door ones (also known as RKC kettlebells). However, in 2019 it seems that you can’t buy them anymore on Amazon! And the reason is clear: Amazon has their own brand of kettlebells now. Who would have thought.
As much as I hate to admit, the AmazonBasics kettlebells are pretty good. From the look and feel, they are close to the Dragon Door ones. I guess I will update this post in a couple years to let you know if they are as durable!
New addition: neoprene coated kettlebells
If you are looking for neoprene covered kettlebells, these are a good choice. The neoprene coating will protect your floor and reduce noise when training.
