Fake Gear Online! Be Warned
As an online retailer (this isn't a shameless plug I swear, read on) I have come across a dozen or so complaints about online gear companies selling knock-off training equipment.
Right now one of the biggest problems are companies making fake name brand boxing gloves. As an athlete and a trainer it is important to protect the integrity of the equipment you train with.
Boxing Glove manufacturers go through rounds of engineering and development to make sure you get the highest quality product for performance and safety.
These knock off companies stuff some cotton in a fake leather shell, put a (sometimes horrible recreation) logo from a name brand on it and sell it online. You can't train properly and shouldn't even try.
If you find a company like this, report them to the BBB or the Attorney General immediately.
(Not so shameless plug) The site that I run has developed relationships with the manufacturers of these products. Shop for gear on fightersfocus.com with confidence.
