Being an MT guy I use much lighter gloves on both the bag and pads, but use Winning's NG2 knuckle protectors. Really cheap and last for ever. They're basically a strip of this kinda jelly stuff in a bit if cotton that you insert over your knuckles under your wraps, they protect your knuckles brilliantly. Super cheap and effective way to protect your hands, buy a pair.
