    Can anyone in the UK recommend a good quality pair of bag gloves?

    My current set are now so old and falling apart that I think it's timer they were replaced.

    shyquille graves, thanks for your reply, I've just been to a local out of town shopping mall and found a great looking set of Everlast gloves at a reasonable price.

    ...Forgive my ignorance, but what are bag gloves?
    Are they simply gloves you where whilst striking?

    Yes, they a just gloves you wear when punching a heavy bag, the idea to condition your hands, we use impact pads for that, but I use a heavy bag for cv workouts.

    I think any standard pair of mma gloves are good for work on the bag. I personally order most of my gear from qulaitymartialarts. They're cheap and reliable. So far it's taken me 3 years of hard use to wreck the pair of gloves I bought fro around £30. Also maybe it would be worth just getting some handwraps and learning how to effectively wrap your hands? I think ou'd get better wrist support for long cv sessions from something like that, plus I think a pair of wraps only cost around £4 these days.

    i either use hand wraps or more often than not i dont bother with anything, it wrecks your knuckles initially but after a while the skin toughens up and you just get a bit of bruising.

    I stopped using bag gloves for heavy bag workouts. When I go multiple rounds a day my knuckles get soared I I feel pin in my wrist. I saw people on reddit's amateur boxing subredd were recommending using 16 Oz gloves for heavy bag training. I got myself the Top Ten 16 Oz boxing gloves model Superfight and noticed a big change. The heavier gloves give a lot more protection. The bigger padding in front of the knuckles is like a pillow. No more soared hands. The bigger target area forgives smaller mistakes. Together with better wrist support my joints feel a lot better. Additionally I get a much better workout with 16 Oz gloves. It was hard for the first 3 sessions, but once I got used to it, I started feeling a lot stronger in my shoulders, neck and arms.

    Done with the workout. I always use wraps inside the 16 Oz. gloves.
