Fighting Sports Tri-Tech Bag Gloves



I wanted a heavier bag glove and got these in a 16 oz size. At that size, they are pretty big. They are my favorite bag glove, and although they don't breathe quite as well as my bx-bg-310, they take a constant beating and fit a little better in the thumb area. I guess they make up some of the weight in the padded cuff and the extra long hook&loop closure strap (these will NOT open up on their own during a workout). Pricey, so you might consider other options in this price range - there are a lot of decent bag gloves that are priced similar.

Not the same

EverGel Glove Wraps



The feeling of support when your hand is properly wrapped - like it is a solid block of supported bones and muscle - well, I didn't find it in using these. These provide really good cushioning at the knuckle and nice wrist support, but lack the lateral compression I was looking for along the lateral/outside of my hand.

Once I stuffed them into my glove, everything seemed tighter and more together, but my hands still felt unsupported.

I ordered from the sizing chart and felt I was ordering a bit small. I don't think a smaller size would actually fit.

For me, taking a few extra minutes of wrapping and rolling and washing hand wraps is better. I'll still keep these in my bag for just-in case situations.

I really like these gloves

Gel-Foam Bag Gloves



I'm a guy who likes to hit the heavy bag a couple times every day for a total of about 30 - 40 minutes. And I love these gloves.

They breathe well enough, the stitching seems tough, and I can put them on by myself without having a lace issue. They are affordable without being cheap. In fact, they are pretty tough gloves. After about 40 hours of bag work, they look like they did when they arrived. The wrist support seems adequate, but I wrap a bit more up the arm anyway.

It took some getting used to in transitioning from MMA style gloves - the way I wrapped my hands to fit inside the glove had to change, especially around the palm and thumb to create the correct fist. Also, the deadened feeling of impact with each blow was also a change - normal for padded boxing gloves when compared to thinner MMA gloves.

Once broken in, this glove is exactly what I was looking for in a daily bag glove that I beat up a bit. Good looking glove as well.

Knuckle Scraper

EverDri Wristwrap Heavy Bag Gloves



I use these gloves on a 70 lb Everlast MMA bag for exercise. While they beat the gloves that came with the bag, they have the same draw back - namely the 2nd knuckles of my hand get beat up. I think the glove slides back with each punch, so the open finger design opens up the fingers to a bit more abrasion. I use 180 wraps and haven't had any problem with the padding up at the first knuckles, but I have to tape up each of my fingers at the 2nd knuckle before my workout, if only to soak up the blood.
