Gloves

Hello all, bin having problems with my wrists after hitting my heavy bag, i dont wear wraps but my current gloves do ok, but the are quite old and i`m ready for a new pair, and was hopeing someone could tell me which ones to buy?

I was thinking of getting some with the velcro wraps around the wrists, but dont know what make to go for?

I have seen the reebok ones but dont know if they are good enough, I`m uk based if anyone can suggest what to get or what you own yourselfs for heavy bag training..

thanks

Sometimes I wrap my hands with conventional hand wraps under my 6 oz gloves, and I also use 16 oz gloves. They are both Everlast.

Definitly wrap your hands it helps, I can't hit a heavy bag without wrapping or my wrist will be killing me the rest of the day. I don't know anything about rebok gloves, never seen them over here in the US but your best bet is to look to spend a decent amount on them and they will be pretty good. I spent $70 USD on my Triumph United 16oz Thai Gloves, and they take a beating every day and still look and feel brand new.

+1 on the hand wraps. They will also help keep your gloves from stinking.

Hey im looking for a decent set of gloves to hit my 90lb heavy bag around. I live in Canada so i want to purchase Rival boxing gear and was looking at getting RB40 Fitness bag gloves. Im also looking at the RB2 Super bag gloves. But more importantly I have normal size adult male hands and and probably going to buy some 180 mexican wraps as well, what size glove should I buy? Thanks

16oz gloves are plenty big enough to protect your hands while hitting the bag as long as they are wrapped properly.
