    I find Everlast products have really went downhill. Cheaply made, fall apart quickly, no hand support (yes I am using handwraps). What gloves would you recommend for hitting the heavy bag? Thanks for any replies.

    I have a 6 years old pair of Boons, 12oz gloves for Thai boxing. I did everything with them, from burpee/pushups to sparrings and bag workouts.

    I don't use them for boxing drills or sparring since they are a little bit damaged so I don't want to bruise anyone, but they are still great for the bag. I heard also that Twins are alright, it seems that Thai gloves are much more durable.

    I also bought 16oz Adidas for 100euro a few years ago, they start to fall apart 2 weeks after buying them. I forgot the recipe somewhere, so I couldn't get them back. I'm still using them for sparrings, but I will never buy Adidas gloves again.

    I love these Title gloves for the heavy bag:

    Easy on the hands but still get a good "pop" on the bag. Some people think they are a little heavier than 16oz due to the gel but I find them to be excellent gloves. I had been using Ringside gloves and these are better for me.

    We have had good luck with the Title gloves and with Rival gloves. We have a pair of the Title Platinum gloves that have been around the gym for close to 15 years and they are still usable. We have had more problems with the inside busting on bag gloves than we do with outer damage. I would recommend that you get leather gloves. If you are going to have times when you are training alone, check the type of wrist fastener and make sure you can fasten them by yourself.
