    Boon and Twins are my favorite brands for muay thai stuff. The twins thai pads are sturdy as hell.

    Mine have velcro, which still remains really strong. I'd imagine the velcro will loosen up eventually, but I've definitely gotten a decent amount of use out of them in the past 4 years. In any case, I have yet to use another set of pads that are as nice to kick or hold as they are. Of course if they were used by everyone in the gym for the past 4 years it might be a different story.

    I just picked up some Fairtex standard pads, the quality is very high. Expensive but the construction is solid and I don't see them wearing out anytime soon.

    I have a pair or Throwdown Thai Pads that I like very much for the price.
    Amazon.com: THROWDOWN THAI PAD - SET OF 2: Sports & Outdoors

    Although they are nothing compared to the Fairtex Thai Pads at my gym. They feel like they would last through a atomic blast and still look good.

    My Throwdown Pads are velcroe, it holds up fine.
    If you can always go with buckles. It sucks to be into a heavy training rootine and have to stop and fix straps.

    Also make sure they are not soft like the ones you see in the sanda training vids.

    Fairtex and Twins make quality boxing and muay thai gear i'd go with them, they maybe on the expensive side but they'll last you pretty much all throughout your muay thai career.

    I don't reccomend throwdown, i think their stuff is a bit cheap.
