You CAN use them as bag gloves if you order a larger size and use strong wrist wraps, but not only will you need someone to prepare your hands before your workout, but the velcro and pseudo-leather on gloves won't hold up for more than a few months.
So what are these gloves for? Sparring and possibly speed bags. Even with sparring, you'll need to wrap your hands. And for that intended purpose, these gloves do just fine and are a great value. They do tend to stink a bit after a few months, which can be remedied by hand washing them in cold water, wringing them out, and letting them dry in your bath tub. However you only have a few cleaning cycles before the velcro will start coming loose during use.
They dry fast. I use them two times a week, so far no unpleasant odors. And after a month they look brand new. Durability undoubtedly depends on how often and heavy you train, but it is ideal for an amateur like me who attends the kickboxing classes for cardio purposes only.
My only complaint is that the size options are a little limited for Everlast training gloves. My size is 8.4’’ (the circumference around the palm across the knuckles). Large/x-large starts from 8’’ and I think I could be happier with a tighter fit.
Still I love my pair of gloves.
There are two things keeping me from giving these gloves a 5/5. One is the quality of the seams. I had to touch up the seams around the fingers a few times. The other is my broken thumb. These things have ZERO thumb protection. My sparring partner threw a fairly light hook that missed by face and hit my hand, and a tiny piece of bone broke of the outside of one of my thumb joints. The lack of thumb protection may be good for grappling in jiujitsu, aikido, and other martial arts that utilize grabs; but for anything like karate, boxing, kickboxing, or muay thai, these are about as good an idea as wearing oven mitts.
If you are a grappler or just want something for bag work, these would be a good addition. But if you are looking for something to use in sparring, whether no contact or full contact, I cannot recommend these gloves in good conscience. Honestly, spend that bit of extra money and buy a pair of gloves with good thumb protection. It is better to spend a bit more than spend 6-12 weeks with your thumb in a cast. Contender and Tapout make some good stuff, and I highly recommend the RevGear Pro MMA gloves (which I bought for a replacement). As for these, I will keep them for bag gloves.
