    Everlast on the MMA bandwagon

    While shopping today in a Modells I decided to check out the gloves, bags, etc to take a break from the boredum of shopping for pants. To my surprise there was a fairly large section dedicated to Everlast "mixed martial arts" gear. They pretty much rebranded bag gloves and boxing gloves to be mma bag gloves and mma sparring gloves. The same goes for head gear, wraps, etc. Along with that stuff there was also "grappling gloves" and shin guards.

    Never having seen any of this stuff before in a local sporting goods store was a pretty big shock. Also seeing the grappling gloves as being $20 (as opposed to the $40 I normally see for mma gloves) lead me to believe that they were shoddy. On their website (http://store.everlastboxing.com/ever...ickboxing.html) the list price is about $40, no clue where the $20 off comes from. Anyone have any experience with any of this stuff before? I'm not really in the market for new gear, but was curious anyway.

    Personally I don't trust Everlast equipment. My friend had a pair of their boxing gloves and let's just say they weren't exactly safe for boxing...

    anyways there's a reason they're priced that low. When it comes to MMA gloves I would definitely find it worthwhile to save up and buy something more high end and reliable.

    Boxers call it Neverlast for a reason.

    Persoanlly, the stuff I got from them was OK for the money. It's not like you're expecting to pass them on to your grandkids.

    I have always found Everlast heavy bags to be quite good, nice and durable. I can't say the same for some of their other gear though ie. Headgear, gloves..they tend to wear out pretty fast. Their bag gloves tend to rip on the inside, which is really annoying when you are trying to put them on.
    They have been around a long time though, why shouldn't they make a buck through MMA?

    Eh, I have Everlast boxing gloves, but I don't box, only spar with them so they've held up nicely. The MMA gloves you saw were probably those stupid fingerless gloves with the bar in the middle. Waste of material if you ask me.
