I purchased a 16oz pair of these gloves over 2 months ago and am very happy with them - so much better than the free set that came with my punchbag! The gloves were advertised on Amazon by PureFitness & Sports as costing just under £40 (by far the best price I could find in the UK) but, when I went to complete my purchase, I was going to be charged £40 for delivery! I then phoned PureFitness and the man I got was really helpful - he apologised for their delivery charge on Amazon, and then directed me to their ebay store where delivery was free. He was also able to personally recommend the gloves which was good to hear. It's incredible when training how quickly the gloves suddenly seem really heavy, but that's my problem - not theirs! I don't have much experience to go by but, from what I do know, I'd recommend these to anyone looking for a pair of synthetic training gloves.
