This purchase was for my wife. I am a boxer and I use expensive, $200 gloves for my training. So, I'm picky. I wanted to get something for my wife so that she could protect her hands and add a little weight/resistance to her at home cardio workouts. We decided to start with the Everlasts, just to see if she liked boxing and would keep up with it. These turned out to be very well-built and protective. Ventilation is good and they won't develop any smells as long as you don't leave them in a closed area (like a gym bag). Padding is well-distributed. Material is fairly durable (not as good as leather, though). My wife is 5'6", 110lbs and fits the 8oz glove snugly, without wraps. If you are hitting a bag, use wraps and go for a larger glove.
Though these are a "cheap" glove, they are very adequate for someone starting out. If you find yourself getting into boxing, your next step would be quality leather gloves in the $50 to $80 range. But, as a starter, I can recommend these. Shes proud to own them and they encourage her to stay active.
