Real leather, works great, good price, all my JKD brothers want them!
I like flat mitts I find that the curved mitts tear the skin off my knuckles - of course, we don't wear gloves and maybe you do.

prefer the curved, but still good

One thing about buying strike pads like this is how you like to conduct your training sessions. If you buy a flat pair like this you'll have to keep in mind the correct body posture so that your training partner doesn't slip off every time they hit. I tend to prefer the slightly more ergonomic and organic curved versions that tend to slide the punch into the center of the mitt. But like I said, this is all a matter of taste. The quality here definitely isn't an issue.

Punching Mitts Expert FAQs
     
  1. What kind of punching mitt is right for my routine?

    Different mitts will help you develop different aspects of your training. First you have to decide what it is you'd like to focus on. Do you want more punching power? If so you'll want to purchase mitts with a larger surface area and increased padding so as to protect both your hands and your partner. When throwing punches at full power all the time, prolonged safety of your joints is paramount.
    Do you want increased accuracy? Then your best bet might be a pair of micro mitts which provide a smaller striking surface and in turn force you to increase the precision of your striking.
    Perhaps you'd like to work on speedy combinations? In that case you'll want a very balanced and light weight pair so that your trainer can move from one position to the next without getting tired or bogged down.

  3. How can punching mitts improve my training?

    One of the most dynamic and effective ways to improve striking ability is through the use of punching mitts. Punching mitts are handheld, mobile pads that a trainer can wear ges when it comes to enhancing your training.
    Curved mitts are excellent for guiding punches into the sweet spot of the mitt. This in turn increases the safety of long term training as punching the mitt squarely works with proper bone alignment and helps prevent wrist overturns and sprains. The off angles of the curve can also be used to experiment with different kinds of strikes.
    Flat mitts are the most traditional and are good for all around training. They allow the striker to come in at different angles and not have to negotiate around the curvature of the mitt. Also some flat mitts are smaller and lighter which can be quicker for the trainer to manipulate.

    When shopping for mitts you'll notice that some have curved surfaces while others are flat. Both offer advantages when it comes to enhancing your training.

  7. Foam padding vs gel padding

    Foam padding is the standard in most mitts and has been proven effective over many years of use. Foam is either tightly molded inside the mitt or designed to contain impact absorbing air pockets. The benefits of foam are the lowered cost of construction and the variability of thickness. Whether you are looking for very thick mitts or small and light, you can find them in foam.
    Gel is a newer technology but is becoming very popular. Gel has an excellent ability to absorb and disperse impact, and can be made thinner than a lot of foam pads. The only downside is gel's tendency to breakdown after extensive use, so for general gym purposes (meaning tons of pounding) it can be better to go with foam.
