Muay Thai Gloves

Hi everyone,

I was wondering what type of gloves are mostly used for muay thai sparring? (8, 10 oz, etc)? I would also like to know if I can use these same gloves for bag work?

I just picked up a bag and I want to start doing some bag work. I also want to join a muay thai gym and train, therefore if I can buy 1 set of gloves for both tasks then perfect. I tried asking the gym but they wont tell me what they use until I join..which I can't at the moment.

Also wondering what the best gloves are on a tight budget?? I'm 5-11 - 195lbs, decent shape.

Any feedback would be appreciated, thanks.

Everlast puts out some fairly good gloves at 8ozs theyre pretty durable and should suit your purposes.

really, 8? I was actually just reading some other posts and other forums and a few guys injured there wrists with 8oz gloves on the bag. Most recommend 14-16 oz, some 12. I might grab 14's...?

8 works so long as you wrap ur wrists right. if you dont then youll hurt your wrists either way.

Alright Fella, I recommend 14oz gloves for sparring, for your protection and for your partners protection aswell.

someone above recommended 8oz gloves, well i can take a hit or two you know but i dont wanna be getting hit by someone wearin 8oz gloves during a training session.

The weight will also improve your speed whilst punching as if you're constantly hitting the bag/sparring wearing heavy gloves then come competition time you put some 8oz gloves on you won't feel the weight asmuch.

As for the gym, they seem pretty unhelpful not saying what equipment to buy until you give them money, i wouldn't train there at all.

Me personally I use cheap bag mitts when hitting the bag, never feel discomfort and alot of times ive hit the bag without any wraps under the mits. I aint suggesting you do this im just saying i have no problems.
I dont use my 14oz gloves for the bag, as the cost me £45 ($80) and wanna keep em in good shape as poss for sparring and stuff, bag mitts you can pick up from your local supermarket lol.

Gloves i recommend?

Twins.

I'd be careful of where you buy stuff from though as gloves particularly have alot of fakes around so if your in the states order your Twins from http://www.fightstuff.us/catalog
