    Open thumb boxing gloves and tips on sweaty gear

    After every training session my boxing gloves feel like they have just been dumped in water from all the sweat, and then i come back the next day and there still sometimes moist, you'd think after a while this would result in mold but so far theres no mold in my gloves, anybody have some tips on ways to dry your gloves off. It may just be because i have a $30 crap pair of everlast gloves so i am getting a new pair of gloves for my birthday. I thought that open thumb thai gloves might help get air into the gloves when training but im not sure. Anybody have any open thumb gloves, are they good for training? These are the gloves i was thinking of getting, http://store.titleboxing.com/twins-s...ag-gloves.html

    have no experience with open thumbed gloves, however maybe you should try some powders that absorb sweat ?

    or try putting them infront of a fan or dry blowing them with cold air (emphasis on cold)

    i used to have that problem for a bit and then i bought these:


    Now i no longer have sweaty gloves problem. :icon_stud

    Do you have any specific brands of these sweat absorbing powders in mind? (i've been wondering the same thing as the poster)

    I've found a solution to this, yesterday i went out to my local sports authority and bought this http://www.sportsauthority.com/produ...entPage=search
    there meant for boots/shoes but you can just throw your gloves right on them and they remove the sweat and get them nice and dry fast too, so if your training twice a day just throw them on this in between and they'll be dry in a half hour. It's a little more expensive then all the powders and wipes but it works better.

    Stuff the gloves with newspaper, and put them in the fridge, should get rid of moist and prevent smell.

    Putting your gloves in the fridge is a bad idea because it will put stress on the leather as the cold temperature will cause the leather to shrink putting stress marks and eventually rips into the leather

    I put the gloves on my car's back seat loosely wrapped in a light towel (so as to avoid too much exposure) and over the course of a fairly warm day - problem solved. Later, put some talcum powder in the gloves as a deodorant.

    I second the use of glove dogs. You can make your own with some socks and active cedar chips- helps them dry and hampers microbes. I also recommend using actual leather gloves, not vinyl.
