Default Lend me your wisdom- new bag gloves

Hi guys. Im looking to get a new pair of bag gloves. Im looking at the IMF techs from Ringside, Boons, Twins, or possibly the Fighting sports tri techs, although they might be a little more than i want to spend at the minute. Any thoughts?
Feel free to offer alternate suggestions, or your own experiences with any gloves you've used. ideally budget is about £50/ $80. Im living in Malaysia so importing from Thailand etc is perfect, although have family coming over from the UK in a month so they can bring over a pair if bought from there.
Thanks in advance people.
Oh, I've read the equipment thread already, just wanted a more specific set of opinions. Cheers

Oh and my main list of qualities i want in the gloves are 1- durability and 2- wrist support.
Ive got a nice pair of Grant gloves for sparring, I want these to be a pair i can get through a lot of rounds on the bag on, and have them hold up.

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ] anyone tried these? Obviously no worries about the quality etc, just not sure about the open thumb and wrist support.

my only issue with the rivals is they don't come in 16oz, although could be persuaded to go with them if they're worth it

I bought a pair of Everlast evergel handwrap boxing gloves they have great cushioning over the knuckles and good wrist support they are fingerless gloves but can be put under some boxing gloves/bag gloves they protect my hands really well and are good strong durable gloves.

Boon bag gloves have zero support, in fact your thumb isn't even covered.....however their Velcro boxing gloves are things of beauty! Great for bag work & sparring. Muay Thai gloves like Boon, Twins, Topking, Sandee, Thaismai etc are great gloves for boxing sparring and bag work as the have an extra bit of padding and reinforcement around the wrist and thumbs to deal with the added sting of kicks u don't get on boxing gloves.

I've also got a pair of Velcro Reyes I use only on the pads as on anything harder occasionally my wrist roll in them, very soft padding and they tear up pretty easy no good for bag work cos the leather is so soft. So as your in Malaysia u should buy a leather MT gloves... extra support, great quality, will last u forever and is there a more ***y glove than Boon in brown.....

I've used Fairtex before but i'd go Boon over Fairtex every time, they aren't as rigid and don't inhibit your fist and feel better quality overall.

Seems a bit too cheap, but the site looks kosher. Remember shipping import tax...I'm sure u can buy Fairtex & Twins over the counter in KL somewhere...
