Best Thai Boxing Gloves for Training?

I've been poking around for a while trying to figure out what the best gloves are for training stand-up--specifically, Muay Thai.

My research has lead me primarily toward Fairtex, but I wanted to get some more opinions before biting the bullet and purchasing them.

It seems like their BGV1 model is the most popular (http://www.fairtex.com/ProductDetail...oductCode=BGV1). That said, the BGV4 seems like a slightly larger version of that with more padding, but I don't think I've seen it anywhere other than their site (http://www.fairtex.com/ProductDetail...oductCode=BGV4).

Any help would be appreciated. I'm not committed to purchasing the Fairtex brand either, so recommendations for other Thai style boxing gloves are more than welcome.

Thanks!

For the money you can't beat Fairtex or Twins for Thai Gloves. Very sturdy and well padded, if you get a chance to find a place or friend who owns a pair and actually try them on then that would give you a better idea of what to go for.

Get as much info from others as possible though as this advice is coming from a guy who owns a pair of ADIDAS gloves for my Muay Thai lol (hey.....they do the job!)

Right now we are in the process of making our very own thai gloves but we are not interested in making a fairtex or twins clone. We did that for a customer last year but it's just not our thing.

to me a good thai style glove should have the 2 following characteristics;

1.the gloves should be easy to open and cloose your hand so your not restricted in your clinch work
2.they should offer more padding on the back of hand and wirst area to provide more protection against kicks.

what i'm more curious about is what gloves do you guys own right now and why you like or dislike the for muay thai training

You can't get wrong with all the top Thai brands out there.

Fairtex, Top King, Windy, Boon, Twins, etc.

Twins and Cleto are the 2 brands I carry in my online store and they're the 2 I rely on the most. I also love Fairtex gloves, but I don't carry those yet.
