Greetings, programs. I just ordered a pair of 16oz. Windy gloves on the recommendation of my instructor. I ordered thinking that all Windy gloves were made with leather but I'm finding out that the pair I ordered were actually from a line called BGVU and are made out of something called Skintex.
Anyone have a pair of these? What are your thoughts? These things cost an awful lot and the word from my instructor was "You'll never have to buy another pair of gloves." if I followed his instructions. High quality leather gloves I can understand, but I don't know if this Skintex stuff is of a lower quality. The gloves were certainly priced up there with leather gloves but I can't seem to find a product review of these particular gloves out there.

I have been trying to find a comparison, but haven't had any luck myself either.

Dear Long Duk Dong,
I am Cor, owner of Windy Fight Gear and Windy Boxing.
The skintex gloves you bought I always advise to beginners; never to advanced or professional fighters. Even if they are good quality and have a 3 month warranty, the pros must go for the bgv bgp or bgn leather gloves.
About the expensive price: I don’t know where you bought them, but the price must be around $39 without shipping. Maybe this is expensive for you, but for a glove from Thailand it is really cheap. If you need more help, you can contact me any time via private message on this forum.
Best regards cor
