Perfect for home workouts, but beware of the awful smell
on January 14, 2014
Background: I use these gloves on a Wavemaster free-standing punching bag. I am not a pro-boxer nor MMA fighter. I use these gloves for high intensity interval training workouts to compliment my weight lifting routine.
Fit: I am a 6'1" male with average size hands. The gloves are snug, but comfortable. It took a few sessions to break the gloves in.
Punching: These gloves offer my hands plenty of protection. I can punch much harder with these gloves than MMA gloves.
Durability: I have been using these gloves 1-3 times per week for approximately 20 minutes each session. In three months, there is very little sign of wear.
Value: Good gloves and price for basic cardio workouts with punching bags, mitts, and pads. If I was a serious boxer or martial artist, I would probably invest in something more professional.
Storage: These gloves smell awful. They have a strong gasoline-type odor. I felt sick inhaling the smell during my first two workouts. Three months later, the gloves still have the odor, but less pungent. I store the gloves in my garage because of the smell.
Conclusion: These affordable gloves are perfect for my home workouts, but beware of the gasoline odor (it will stink up the room). I hope you find this review helpful and you find a great set of gloves to meet your needs. Good luck punching stuff!
