8oz is light. I wouldn't go below 10oz, and I'm a girl. I use broken in bag gloves, and I really feel the impact at that weight.

I haven't tried the Adistar gloves, but other Adidas gloves are not heavily padded. They are probably among the most compact gloves I have come across. In addition, I find 12oz Adidas super-snug with wraps, and my hands must be significantly smaller than yours.

Adidas' low-end has a bad reputation. Apparently, they split after a couple months of use. Like Everlast, their high(est)-end is pretty good. Adistar gloves definitely fall in the low-end.

I say invest in a quality pair of bag gloves and forget those.

I feel your pain. No, I really, really do. My gloves cost me many a skipped lunch. But, in the long run, a pair of better gloves will both help your hands, technique and bank account. Poorly made gloves will have to be replaced pretty soon.

Although, I did make a mistake earlier. The Adistars are in fact towards the high end of Adidas gear. I confused them with Adidas Training, considerably inferior. So, that much is good news. For that price point though, you could easily find clearance Everlast Protex2 or Protex3 or higher end Lonsdale at a more suitable weight.

To be honest. Our gym has bought a lot of Adidas boxing equipment and I most be honest, their quality is not as good as a lot of the other more establish boxing equipment producers like, everlast, lonsdale or title. Not by a mile. In my opinion.
