Guys help me out. I'm in a dilemma. Which one is better?

Has anyone here used Everlast gloves? I was looking at these. Its my first pair of boxing gloves and i'll be using them mostly for bag work. I'm also considering these weighed gloves. Has anyone used either of these gloves or have any suggestions?

I don't know a lot of people who like everlast. Most everyone I know uses combat sport international or revgear.

Basically what i figured. Heard mixed things about Everlast gloves but overall it seemed fairly negative. Is there any particular gloves you guys would recommend?

combat sports or top contender safety training gloves.
get them at www.combatsports.com
i suggest at least 14oz (16oz or 18oz if you're over 170lbs)

Yeah i'm over 200. 16oz are my preference right now. Anyway thanks i'll check those out.

I have these in the 16oz variety and they are awesome.
Posted On:6/19/2007 11:19am
Yeah they look pretty good. I was looking at those and the Top Contender Hook & Loop Training Gloves. Either way 16oz looks like the way to go. Anyone here use 18oz before though? You don't see as many people using 18's.

i like the elastic sleeve that covers the velcro on the safety training gloves, cause it stops the velcro from tearing up your partner's neck when doing clinch work.
other than that the ones wolf suggested are fantastic.
it should be noted that many people find the ones i like (with the velcro covering sleeve) to be difficult to put on and take off without help and therefore prefer the ones wolf showed.
my hands are very small so i can just slide them on and off, but those with big hands can find them frustrating.
i think that if you spend a lot of time taking the gloves on and off (like if you trade off holding pads with a partner) then you're better off without the sleeve. if you put the gloves on and leave them on for the whole training session then get the ones with the sleeves.
