longevity

I find the longevity with my gloves is lessened by the smell and ability of the glove to dry inside. I've always gone with leather because I feel that they breathe better than vinyl and last longer without smelling inside. I haven't tried this new anti-microbial lining yet. Is this better than just getting leather gloves to avoid this problem? Are these gloves vinyl/synthetic leather?

These are vinyl aka synthetic leather. There is a leather version, it's SKU bx-gl-160
Smell comes from bacteria buildup. How effective is the anti-microbial lining? Everlast says it's effective. Can anyone who has used these for a long period of time share their thoughts regarding the smell?

I'd like to recommend a product called glove dogs - http://www.karatedepot.com/bx-gl-99.html . These are inserted into your gloves and help absorb smell and moisture. A great way to prevent the kind of wear and tear you are experiencing!

I used the protex2 gloves for a 4 month period. In this time i put easily 20 hrs of work into them a week including bag and sparring work. The lining remained in good condition until about half way through the third month it, like many gloves, began to stink and had a seemingly permanent wet spot in the very top part of the glove liner. Also the vinyl began to wear through around the palm, I assume that this was perhaps the by-product of perhaps the sweat beginning to absorb through the liner. These are recommended if you want a comfortable glove that has a short lived longetivity but still perform very well.

Haven't used them for too long but I can tell you your hands do get sweety. But my gloves don't smell bad at all... I use foot powder on my hands before using them. It helps to keep your hands a little bit dryer and kills germs that generate the bad smell... Maybe you could give it a try.

Now i've been using them for more than 3 months. The gloves are in excellent condition. No smell at all... I do have extra care on using clean handwraps and footpowder so I don't carry bad smells into my gloves.
100% recommended. I'm buying this again when my actual gloves wear out (doesn't seem to be anytime soon).

I've had 16 oz. Protex2 for about a year and a half now. Very nice fit, broken-in right out of the box. I use them 2, sometimes 3 times per week for 12-round workouts. No smell or dampness issues, but I take care to air them out and spray them inside with disinfectant spray. Wrist and thumb support are superb. The weak point seems to be the vinyl cover on the gloves, it's starting to wear out (surprisingly, not on the hitting surface), I think they'll last me another six months. All-in-all very good gloves considering how inexpensive they are.
