    I just bought those from ringside. They do offer more protection, however, I wouldn't say it offers much more. The biggest problem you will run into is that your glove won't fit anymore. My glove, (Ultimate Classic Thumbless Glove: http://www.ringside.com/DETAIL_Ultim....ASPX?ID=25145)
    used to fit perfectly for bag work, now it doesn't fit as well with those wraps. Overall, I'd say only use it if your gloves are slightly too big and don't provide enough protection for your knuckles.

    As for the regular gel-gloves that don't have the wrappings with them suck, I wouldn't bother buying a pair.

    I love Mexican-style handwraps because they don't bunch up and crinkle around the knuckles and they 'breath' much better than the classic style ones. The extra 10" also helps if you have big hands.

    I use ringside mexican style hand wraps. I wrap my hands differently depending on which hand im wrapping at the time. I'll usually wrap my wrist and knuckles abit tighter on my power hand to provide some added support. So the extra length and elasiticity of the mexican style are good for my purposes.

    Gel hand wraps are good and comfortable to use. Price is little bit high but not too much.

    I had a set of (admittedly, cheap) gel wraps and found them to be worse than nothing. They offered very little in the way of wrist support, and most of the padding sat on the back of the knuckles rather than the front. The extra leverage on the top of the hand made me more likely to twist my wrist when punching than if I was wearing just gloves.
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.
