Go inbetween? lol... go for the 14oz, more than adequate protection for hitting thai pads... and as for hand wrapping, i wouldn't bother unless your wearing bag gloves or anything under say 10oz and hitting an object for prolonged periods, like an heavybag for an hour.
i've never used Combat sports equipment, their shin instep guards have had some decent reviews but i'm unsure about their gloves... for the price ($24.99) suppose you can't go wrong. look into investing in some Twins gloves if you decide to take up MT.
