Review: Everlast - EverGel Glove Wraps
For the strikers on here I am sure you can all share my former frustration for taking the time to wrap your hands. It may take anywhere from 30 seconds(Guiness record?) to 5 minutes for you to do it. It's a real pain in the ass with cloth hand wraps. You have to wash them, roll them up to avoid tangling, buy new ones after a few months use, etc. It's an even worse pain in the ass for the gauze wraps option. They take even longer and take a toll on your wallet. I got sick of wasting my time/money on cloth hand wraps so I began seeking alternatives. I found Everlast's EverGel Glove wraps. They look and go on like a weight glove/MMA glove. It makes getting ready for bag work a breeze and in some cases, protects you better than other wraps.
Price - $25.00 + Tax at any sports store/$19.99 + S/H at EverlastBoxing.com
Pros - Easy to put on. Great altenative to tradional/cloth hand wraps. Sleek. Protects the hands well.
Cons - Difficult to take off.
I used them for about 10 rounds today. I haven't used them for sparring yet but I will try that soon. I read that you can use them by themselves on the speed and double ended bags. I tried them on the double ended bag and they worked like a charm.
If you're sick of wasting your time/money on the other hand wraps, try these. I go through about 12 pair of cloth hand wraps a year(tears, rips, velcro falling apart, etc) which equates to about 29.99 on Ringside.com. I bought this for a little over 26.00 at a local sports store. You don't save much on your wallet but you will save time/effort.
