Needed some gloves for the Swick seminar. Much like my choice of MA, I decided to go with what was cheap and widely available. That turned out to be the pair of Everlast grappling gloves I found (new) at Play it Again sports for 24.99.

At first I was a bit concerned because they, apparently, only came in 2 sizes. Sm/M and L/XL. The big ones were definitely too big, but the small ones seemed a bit tight. I figured they would stretch to fit, relax and mold to my hand, however, which they did.

I used them the whole seminar, and they were comfortable, protected my hands and were easy to use. I am very happy with my purchase. The only major drawback I could find was that they didn't offer much in the way of wrist support. I cannot speak to their durablilty, however, since I only have used them the one time, so far.

Not to worry, I'm sure they'll disappoint you in no time by falling apart.

Everlast just sucks. I tried those wierd gel mma style padded gloves they sell, & they fell apart after 2 uses. Complete crap. My everlast heavy bag top zipper fucked up shortly after I got it. Now it's held together by a crapload of ductape. Thats the problem w/ everlast gear it's everywhere and it's cheap and it really sucks. I don't know if I could afford to order a decent heavybag and pay for the shipping too. I figure i'll just buy a new one every six months or so.

Fixed that the ratings weren't showing up.

Those are bag gloves.

Hey, I've heard the "nEverlast" jokes before. But these worked great for what I got 'em for.

I'm also interested in how long they hold up. There's a seventy pound leather Everlast heavybag hanging in my dojo that I bought used in 1979 or 80. Still going strong. Every Everlast product I've purchased in the past few years however have been complete crap. It would be great if they went back to their roots but quite frankly they've done so much damage to their reputation it hardly seems to matter anymore.

canvas everlast bags seem to be OK but the pleather ones are hopeless.

The canvas itself may be okay, but the top zippers still suck! OR at least the thread that holds the zipper and bag together sucks! Nothing a few rolls of duct tape won't fix though.

Tired the same duct tape remedy on my gel bag glove thingies. It didn't work of course.
On a positive Everlast note. I have the same leather everlast shiity ol' elastic-wirst-band bag gloves I got 4 years ago and they're holding up fine.

I also have an Everlast Chin-up bar/push-up station and the only thing that has deteriorated on that is the foam rubber that gets mashed up against the door frame. Otherwise, it has held up great and I've had it for years now.

I don't think this is too off topic. Anyone know of any bag gloves that give that empty hand feel? Thats why I bought the everlast gel bag gloves, the guy at the store recommended them when I was looking for real bag gloves-that was all they carried. The gel-bag gloves suck terribly for any one who isn't punching silk pillows. Seriously they were f*ed up after one use and only got worse. I wish I had saved my reciept.

Everlast gloves suck dude.
They will fall apart just as your getting used to them.

I'd recommend the Fairtex equivelent, they're always pretty sturdy.

I ended up getting the $90 pair of their MMA gloves and they are the best MMA gloves that I own. Really good quality.
