    You know, I'm shopping for MMA gloves too and I wonder if anyone here has tried the Fairtex gloves, which are priced fairly nice and look like good quality. They can be seen at http://www.fairtexgear.com/html_documents/gear/gear_item.asp?item=0207 or a thumbless version at http://www.fairtexgear.com/html_documents/gear/gear_item.asp?item=0208 (both are $49.95)

    I'll give you guys a quick rundown on MMA gloves.

    HUNTER: My school gets these for almost nothing because my instructer is good friends with the owner of Hunter. There well made and sturdy, but not nearly enough padding to use for sparring. I'd even say that the type of padding and leather used would be more likely to cause cuts then other gloves. They are lace up with neoprine finger loops.

    Fairtex: Excellent construction. Fit well. A little bit lacking on the padding but it softer and thicker then the Hunter glove padding. Overall they are good gloves for competitions but If you seriously want to hit during sparring they may be a little thin for some ppl.

    Twins: They make 2 pairs, Pride style and Shootoo style. I've only used the Shooto ones. They have a lot of thick padding. They are open hands with leather finger loops. Enough padding for sparring. They may be a little thick but its not fun getting hit when your just training.

    Quano: probably the most popular gloves. Sufficient padding (more then the hunters, less then Twins). closed/ open palm design with velcro strap. Used in UFC, KOTC and many others. Well made and sturdy construction.

    Harbinger: the glove is marketed as a bag glove. You need to remove a padded stip from the palm in order to grapple with it. Descent padding but wrist support isn't the greatest. OK for sparring. Similar padding to the Quano gloves. Closed palm design.

    When your looking for a glove you need to consider the following.

    1. If you intend on taking the gloves off and on a lot you wouldn't want lace up gloves or gloves the require extensive taping.

    2. Will the glove have sufficient padding for semi contact sparring. Getting hit is no picnic.

    3. Will you feel more comfortable with open palm or close palm gloves.

    I personally own a pair of the Old Style Fairtex gloves that are no longer available. They have thicker padding and are open hand. I like them for sparring. When I actually plan on taking an MMA fight I'll start training with the Quano's or HArbingers instead because that is what most promotion use.

    I'd give them a 3 out of 5.

    1. Fairtex, Quano, Twins 5/5
    2. Harbinger 4/5
    3. Hunters 3/5

    There way to thin.

    Thanks guys~!

    I am looking forward to own a pair of hunter, since they are 40 USD with free shipping in www.mmagear.com.

    However, I don't don't wherever my hands are too small for the Hunters gloves. According to Ouano size chart, my hands are medium.

    I appericate it if anyone would help me!!!

    I've got the Fairtex thumbless. As Berserk said, their somewhat inadequately padded for sparring with any real level of contact (unless you want to get your face rearranged).

    Otherwise they fit well and I'm pretty happy with them.

    Hmmm. I was thinking of getting a pair of Kikskin gloves, but now I'm wondering if they're too thin for practice? Anyone have a set that could give an opinion (Luan; I seem to remember you mentioning them)? They look fantastic otherwise. Maybe I'll take a second look at some of the others. I wish there was a way to see various types before you buy, but I guess MMA gear is still a ways out from being available in your local sporting goods shop. ;)

    Something about gloves:

    Almost all types of quality full contact safety gear is designed to protect the wearer. Gloves are no different. Gloves are meant to protect your hands, not your partners head or face. Headgear is designed to protect your partenrs head and face. If your gloves do protect your parteners head or face it is only really a bonus.

    People that say that they are looking of a type of glove that will allow them to go full contact but still protect their partenr are missing this fact. There is no glove in the world that will allow you to hit someone as hard as you can in the face and have them like it.
