Just got my gloves and I can say that for the price they are worth it. I will get all the use out of these as I can and need. I see no problem using them for just about everything when it comes to training, I would even use these in a cage or ring. There easy to put on, stay in place and very versital. Good for someone who needs a multi task glove and doesn't have a lot to spend or just needs an extra pair. I would recommend them to someone that is wondering about buying some.
Also I have heard a few complaints about these gloves so let me give you a few tips. The main thing you have to remember about any glove is it takes a little time to get use to them, heres how most problems are easy to deal with. Inbetween your fingers I can see how they can be harsh, just a little athletic tape and maybe gauze till you break them in.Also the lack of wrist padding and support, just get a set of hand wraps. Novice ones can support the palm and wrist if wrapped good. Pro ones can cover most of the hand and take care of the fingerwebbing and help with support. Just use both or too pairs of one kind. More wraps means you can also cover more of the knuckles as well so if you are a beginner try for some heavy padded and extra protective gloves, then try these out. If you know what your doing then you don't have to read this.
And at the time, the price was right. (Since increased by 4 bucks and then came down 2 bucks.) So I ordered them on 5/24/11 from Rose Sports through Amazon with free shipping on an order over $25, hoping to get the ones I wanted. And I did. These gloves are, in fact, exactly what I wanted, for the reasons I said before, and because they're made tough, made to last, support my wrist well - but not as good as a wrap, and fit my hands perfectly after breaking them in (size l/xl, palm size big, 4 3/4" x 4 1/2"). No wraps, too tight for wraps. They feel like they're part of my hand. That's what I wanted. They just feel right. Also, with the open palm, they don't get all wet with sweat. And so they don't stink later. The package (nice, zippered mesh, will keep both gloves in your possession, if you use it) says they're treated with something called "Ever Fresh." Anyway, they don't stink. That alone is worth the purchase. Also, all black, no white trim stuff or gaudy logos, i.e., they look good. Used them maybe ten times so far. No stink.
The end of the glove fingers do not quite cover my second knuckle when hitting with a fist. I'm fine with that. Reminds me to hit square, not at an angle with my second knuckle leading, and that's good IMO. If I do hit second knuckle first, it's not bad, just reminds me not to do it again real soon. True bag-gloves cover the second knuckle, both the ones with separate fingers or a single big pad, BUT then the ends stick out past your second knuckles like flaps. If you use them in the ring, you could scrape or poke your opponent, like in the eye... Might start a real fight. Not always a good thing. These gloves don't do that.
So, I highly recommend these gloves, with the caveat, that they send you the same ones they sent me - and if Amazon comes up with a stable price. (They are made in China, so maybe the problem is in the changing value of the US dollar vs. the Chinese yuan...
One more thing. ALL of these gloves, as tight and form-fitting as they are, would be easier to pull off if manufacturers added a couple small but strong cord loops at the end of the two middle fingers on the PALM side. Many half-finger motorcycle gloves have these unobtrusive loops to help pull the gloves off quickly. If you can't picture them in your mind, check them out at the motorcycle glove store. I sewed loops on my gloves using about an inch and a half parachute cord for each loop. Blackened with permanent marker. They work well.
Very nice protection for heavy bags training. Nice grip also. There is one thing I have to say though - these gloves tend to run small, I mean, my hands are medium amongst Americans and I had to squeeze them into these gloves every time. I don't know what would happen to those who have bigger hands.
I own one pair of gloves of 12 OZ, i have to say that this gloves are more than great, and i'm not a fan, why i say this:
1) Best gloves this price (less than 35 bucks)
2) The material is very good, they will last very long
3) The color is durable, it doesn't scratch or get's decolored
4) They are very confortable, and they have swet technology (it means that even if you swet, they wont smell or stink)
5) Your hand is very protected (the fingers and the front part of the hand)
I was undecided about buying the 12 OZ, the 14 OZ or the 16 OZ, I went for the 12 Oz because for heavy bag practicing they are the best, Why?
Because your hands like the heavy bag are very harsh, they need better contact, if you have big gloves (16 OZ) there's a lot of space in the glove, and your fingers no matter if you have handwraps, are able to move inside, and that might cause you a broken finger or to get hurt) in the other. so the 12 OZ are PERFECT FOR HEAVY BAG.
In the other hand, if you want good gloves for sparring, then you need to buy the 14 OZ or even better 16 OZ gloves, because they will make you work more your hands and you'll gain speed, also no one will practice with you with smaller gloves, because the impact of smaller gloves is stronger as they have less material your hand impact will be more direct.
For heavy bag if you buy the 12 OZ gloves, depending on your hand strenght you probably won't need handwraps, because the gloves are very confortable as i mentioned before, and they will fit your hands perfectly.
HOW TO CHOSE A SIZE? i had trouble choosing the right size, because almost no one published a review about how to pick the right size so that's the first reazon why i wrote this.
1) If you are less than 5'4 Height go for the 12 to 10 OZ gloves for heavy bag, and for sparring go for the 14 OZ.
2) If you are less than 5'9 Height, but 5'5 or more, go for the 12 Oz for heavy bag and the 16 Oz for sparring.
3) If you are more than 5'9 Height for heavy bag use the 12 or the 14 Oz gloves depending ond how big or not are your hands, and for sparring the 16 Oz.
AGAINST, (this are excellent gloves to start boxing or having boxing initial classes, in case you have some time practicing you might want to pick more prof. gloves).
These gloves are the Absolute Best!, Not only are they comfortable but very hardy. I use them for the heavy bag with or without wraps i feel no discomfort. My fellow students tried them on and wish they would have bought these instead of other products from Everlast or other brands. I just ordered the Everlast 12 oz. Mixed Martial Arts Sparring Gloves from Amazon also.
First Im not a boxer in any way I bought the gloves b/c theres a punching bag in the house I moved into. I use I have used these gloves for two weeks now and I love them. Finally they are broken in and they are comfortable in the knuckles area and my wrists do not feel like they are "tweaked" after. Sometime I will use writs wraps with the gloves and I haven't had any issues with the gloves when I do it this way. The padding on the gloves works wonders. I have large hands with boney knuckles and before using the gloves I would use only wrist wraps. I would tear my knuckles to shreds after 20 min on the bag. Now I have no issues with my knuckles at all. I would recommend the gloves to anyone who uses a heavy punching bag for occasional/recreational use. I also like how easy it is to pick things up with the gloves

I got these and UFC MMA gloves. These were large/XL and were a little bit smaller in size compared to the others. Still fit on my large hands with wrist wraps. I actually feel these are better than the UFC brand gloves. The padding is softer than UFC though. Keep that in mind.
These gloves are extremely well made, with high-quality leather on the top and mesh on the palm side. They fit just right and are neither too loose or too tight.
I got lucky and purchased these gloves in brand-new condition for $4 from a local Goodwill. It's been a great purchase, one I wouldn't of minded spending full-price on. I have the black gloves with the red logo, I'm assuming the white ones are identical.
These gloves are meant for training, so they have extra padding compared to actual fight gloves. This is great for sparring with a partner, as the extra padding gives you both a little extra protection from injury. Injuring yourself while training means you'll have time taken away from training, which isn't very efficient! Even heavy bag work, especially when your starting out and strengthening your hands, the extra padding lets you put more into your punch without injuring yourself. It has adequate padding on both the knuckles and the back of the hand, so you'll be protected no matter which way you're striking, as well as a solid wrist-wrap, which has three points of velcro, and can be adjusted for a perfect fit.
I have the S/M size, which is just a bit too small for me when I put hand-wraps on, but perfect without them. I'm 6', 170lbs, and I'd say my hands are medium to medium-large, so it makes sense that the hand-wraps would bump me up a size. Since I got them cheap, I'm not complaining, but it is something to keep in mind when you're ordering. Without hand-wraps, I cut up my knuckles(usually the pinky) a bit from hitting the heavy bag; a minor inconvenience, but one you may not be willing to tolerate, so be aware.
All leather, quality fighting gloves. I REALLY like these and view them as ideal for my martial arts practice.
So why 4 stars and not 5 stars?
Because my Dojo does a mix of karate, jujitsu, boxing and judo. These gloves offer superior protect to both me and my opponent. Well padded and well made.
The only problem? I have to take them off for judo as with these gloves on, it is harder to grab and hold my opponent. Why should it matter? Doesn't in judo. I just don't need them. But when doing the "karate" where judo is also legal, it is harder to catch, say a kick and hold the leg/foot for a take down.
Of course in pure karate or pure judo, this problem would not come up.

I was a little worried after reading some of the reviews of customers who bought some of the other Hayabusa gloves. I saw quite a few complaints that the gloves had ridges inside that cut into the fingers. I just want to report that these gloves do NOT have that problem. They fit perfectly, they look very cool, and they are SUPER comfortable. If you are shopping for MMA style gloves don't hesitate to buy a pair of these. I can't wait to see how they hold up on the mats! They sure will look cool!
I've been a martial artist for 20 years and I teach a class in Arlington, TX. So, I've seen a lot of martial arts equipment. These are the best gloves of their kind that I have seen. I say that because they are so versatile. Normally, I think of either having bag gloves or fight gloves, but these gloves are great for both. They are made of durable leather and heavily padded. There is an elastic wrist strap as well as a velcro strap that really helps the gloves stay on and stay in position while you're punching OR grappling. Additionally, the design actually allows you to make a proper fist while you're punching. At the same time, there is nothing to inhibit the fingers from gripping and grabbing. This is great for punching a bag or an opponent. I ordered a pair for a student of mine a few weeks ago. I just ordered a pair for myself. I expect to be ordering a few more as my students will probably want more.
I've been using these for about a month now and they just now started to break in. The gloves themselves are pretty comfy and provide ample cushioning for grappling or bag punching. I did how ever buy some handwraps mainly to protect my wrists from hurting after a long training session. So far there is nothing I dont like about them. very satisfied and highly recommended.
Btw I bought the grey and red ones and the look pretty cool!
These gloves are very durable and tough. The design is simple but effective. The blows that I give my heavy bag and standing heavy bag are pretty hard, but the impact is minimized a lot because of the gloves. I had another pair that were similar to these that just fell apart. I'm glad I purchased these.
I have put these gloves through their paces, and havent broke a stich yet. Everlast is true to the name.
I was sick of wrapping my hands prior to cardio kickboxing classes. I heard conflicting things saying I could wear these in lieu of wraps and under gloves, and then some said no way. I decided to get them and I stopped wrapping my hands. These have lasted me the last four months with 3x a week use. My wrists and knuckles are protected with great support and they fit right under my gloves for heavy bag work. Plus I save so much time now just slipping these on! You can machine wash them and they turn out just fine! A good purchase for sure!
These hand wraps are exactly what I was looking for. They fit me just fine and are so much quicker to put on than the long tape kind. Everyone at the kickboxing studio has been asking me where I got them.
at this price ($20-25) they are a steal. these gloves look like they're worth about 5 times what i paid for them. they look extremely high quality and you will for sure have people at the gym asking you what kind of gloves they are and where did you buy them. padding is thick, curved, and the wrist closure supports your wrist better than any similar glove i've used. warning though, they are sized small, so please go up a size if you want them to fit right. in everlast glove sizing i'm a S/M so i bought these in the regular size but they were too small for me. when my girlfriend saw them though she loved them, tried them on, and now they're hers. i ended up buying another pair in L size for me and they fit perfect. i don't MMA so i can't tell you how well these will work while grappling. i can tell you that you have enough freedom to grab wrists and ankles with these gloves on, as well as other activities like jumping rope. i mainly use these for training with thai pads with partners so i enjoy these types of gloves so i can put them on and off with ease. if you plan to heavy bag, these gloves will work fine for short spurts but if you plan on punching a bag for extended periods of time then a standard boxing glove/hand wrap combination would be a better choice mainly for the added support, protection, and comfort. with these gloves you have to clinch a fist to properly punch. the curved padding helps with this but you will be fatigued after a long periods. face it though, standard boxing gloves just aren't as cool as these. i'm so pleased with these gloves i'm thinking about buying the XL size and trying them out with hand wraps.
I got S/M glove size after reading a review about these being big sized gloves and I am happy I did they are snug to get on, but once of stay n don't slide up and down.
The only problem I had is they hurt my knuckles (Chafe them) I am not sure if this is because they are still new and need to be warn in, I am looking at getting wraps for my hands but think if I do that I will have a problem getting my hands in the glove.
Over all good quality and am happy with the price I paid for the products. Love the pink colour aswell!
Gloves were a little tight, (I have big hands) but once I slipped them on and used them for a bit, they fit better. Pretty nice quality for the price. They look gray in the picture, but they are black as it says. Overall, good for the price.

Great gloves, they are light, look spectacular, fit my hands great. One problem is they cut my knuckles pretty bad until I broke them in, otherwise great gloves, I can recommend to anyone!
THESE ARE NOT GLOVES FOR HITTING A HEAVY BAG!!!!! I have read reviews that say that these aren't strong or well made for bag gloves...That's because these ARE NOT bag gloves, they are gel hand wraps. You use these for extra protection for your knuckles and wrists. You put these on and then you put your BAG GLOVES ON OVER THEM....sorry for repeating myself but I just want to clear. anyway great product if you use them correctly. You may need to buy your heavy bag gloves one size larger than your actual size so these fit under them. My wrists and knuckles feel great after a hard workout on the heavy bag much more support than classic hand wraps.
5.0 out of 5 stars Easy, Quick, Comfortable,
These gloves are very comfortable. At 7oz they provide plenty of soft padding so you don't injure your sparring partner. The wrist wraps provide good support and they are adjustable well do to the generous amount of velcro. I can punch my heavy bag without worry of injuring my knuckles at 100% power. I do use sports tape to prevent abrasion on my pinky and 4th knuckle even though I generally strike with the index and middle. They fit way better than the basic foam sparring glove and not as dense or hard as a 4oz UFC style fight/grappling glove.
These gloves are great! I use them only for heavy bag training, but these gloves would also be great for sparring. I bought them because I was sick of using bulky 16oz. boxing gloves and the 4oz. MMA gloves didn't offer too much protection of your knuckles. But these are amazing, the gloves are small but offer great protection of your whole hand! I highly recommend these gloves to anyone who trains in MMA.
I bought these pair of gloves about two months ago and it is just a delight every time I put them on and spar a little bit with my brother. Although I have to warn you that these are only a 4.0 oz of protective thickness meaning that you can still make a good deal of harm with your punches if not careful. So far no complaints about this product and I do abuse them a bit
After a few workouts, the Everlast MMA gloves were found to be very flexible with good grip. Nothing much to say other than a good, solid feel to the glove with expected results.
