    let me elaborate with my post.. by real bag gloves I mean anything from 8-10oz open-thumb type gloves to 16oz full thumb gloves. I recommend the bigger ones if you are beginning so you can learn to keep your hands up no matter how tired you are.

    those lil gel gloves are great for saving time wrapping your hands but they are made to be worn inside a glove, they protected my hands fine when I had a hand injury and otherwise would need to double wrap my hands, but hitting the bag without a glove over them will **** them up. the finger loops also tear pretty easy on them.

    That being said, don't get fingerless bag gloves unless they cover the finger joints because you will shred your skin that way and be sore enough to find wearing boxing gloves after uncomfortable

    expanding on MMAmickey's post;
    if you want to develop your bones for bare handed striking, karate style, you can do it via hitting hard bags or makiwara. But be ready for cuts on your fists and possible bad pain when you get old from microfractures. And you have to start light, very light and build your way up. Recommend you do it under instruction. You will probably suffer injury one way or another.

    nope, these are 16oz and run about $80, they seem pretty high quality only difference is the Gel substituting for the foam

    those "gel" gloves are for people who not only hit very hard (usually big guys, 200lbs+) and train very often (like 4-6 days a week) but who also have joint issues, and need to lessen the wear and tear of bag work on their joints.

    i'm going to go out on a limb and say that if you asked on this forum about them, then you don't need them.\

    just get a good pair of 16oz safety training gloves for sparring and bagwork.

    by the way they're described as breaking down eventually i'd suggest the twins 16oz as a better alternative. they're the only glove thats lasted me more than a month of heavy use (i've had them for 2 years now and although dirty are practically as good as new)

    Good pair of 18, 20oz gloves are an option too, and does wonders for hand speed.
