    I know, I decided a while back that I'll just use the 180 inch hand wraps I got. I'll use the gloves for competition and sparring only lol. This is just a precautionary tale of how my ignorance put me out for 2 weeks.

    Oh, you were using those kind of gloves for bag work? Yeah, you don't wanna do that, be sure to invest in some bag gloves in the near future.

    The harbinger ones are ok and only cost $40. Hell, I'm sure one can find a cheaper deal in ebay.

    Bag gloves = $40+/-

    Costs of dealing with a fracture = a fucking lot more than $40.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Very noobish question: What is the practical difference between sparring gloves and bag gloves? That is, not "How do I tell them apart?" but "Why should I not use sparring gloves on the bag?"

    Sparring gloves are softer on the outside to protect your training partners. Hitting the bag with them compresses the foam and ends up hurting your partners when you use them to spar. Also bag gloves should use a slightly more durable leather but they don't always. The perfect example of this is assholes that spar with the Harbinger fingerless bag glove. The leather is thick, it has a grip bar and they have stiff padding.

    Not a sparring glove:

    We had to MMA spar once with those hardbingers since we didn't have proper gloves. It was horrible. Couldn't train realistically without hurting your partner (that **** has no padding at all.) So it degenerated into a tippy-tappy followed by takedown followed by grappling. Meh.

    Most people in my kickboxing class seem to use 14-16oz boxing gloves rather than MMA gloves or anything of the sort (I've got a pair of Select 16oz gloves), but unless contradicted I will assume that your advice still applies.

    I was referring to MMA sparring. In Kickboxing I always use 16 oz. training gloves. But Kickboxing competition gloves are obviously different anyway and Kickboxing bag gloves are usually much smaller than 16oz.

    For Kickboxing-

    Sparring Gloves (note the velcro closure):



    Competitions Gloves (the white area is to show the legal striking surface):



    Bag Gloves (notice they are way smaller):

    The competition glove picture seems to have gone missing (no hotlinking?), but very useful information all the same -- thank you.
