How big are you and how good (soft) are your gym's bags? 10oz gloves are pretty small. Personally I prefer to train in 16oz bag gloves. Less cushion isn't necessarily a bad thing.

I would go heavier on the bag gloves. If you bruise a knuckle you won't be working out for a while. I use 14oz Ringside Super Bag Gloves.

Agree, 16oz sparring gloves. I use Everlast now but am looking at Rival.

If you are going to spar a lot, go to your dentist and get a custom single mouth guard made. Should be $50-$80 but is the best protection. Also, if you try to talk with a double in you sound like an idiot.

180 mexican (elastic) wraps. Agreed. Can't have too much hand protection.

I don't compete so I don't have boxing shoes. Other guys here can help with a suggestion, I'm sure.

That's the general consensus.

Yes. Work it into your routine. Skip for a few rounds.

I use heavier bag gloves as well (14oz).
but as a newbie i thought it might be easier to start w/ 10oz and move up as you see fit

ironic thread, i just bought my first sparring gear as i have a guy in my class whos a kickboxer and is willing to spar with me. ive had rival rb20's in 10oz for about a year and a half now. awesome gloves, theyve held up well. i bought my first set of sparring gear this week. i got the rival mexican style headgear in a couple days ago. also got in some mexican style 180" rival wraps, i was using cotton 150's before. and a good new mouthguard off rivals site for only 10 bucks. and i placed an order for some 16oz title hook and loop all leather training gloves, and a cheap title groin protector. nothing too fancy, pretty cheap but good quality gear. and i agree with the guy who said rival has great customer service, Julia is awesome. super nice

Thanks for all great answers
The first thing that i bought weeks ago was a speed jump rope
Now i have bought Mec. Hand wrap 180, Adidas Champ Speed II boxing boots and a double mouthguard from BrainPad (3XS).
I'm now try to decide a pair of bag gloves, it will be either Rivals Elite or RB50 (D30) bag gloves.
(Answer on question above: I'm (Swedish messure haha) 80kg heavy and 182cm long, have been competing in bodybuilding for 3years ago so see myself as quite good trained hehe.

Regards/Robin
