Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rival RB1 Ultimate Boxing Bag Gloves featuring the WRIST LOCK support system (Misc.)
I originally bought some cheaper Lonsdale sparring gloves for use on my heavy bag. Within a month, I had destroyed them - the side of the right hand glove split open and the knuckle area was worn and cracked. So I took the plunge and bought these Rival gloves as a replacement...and they are infinitely better. Made from real leather, they are a lot tougher and there's a bit less padding inside which is better, because I can actually move my fingers a bit now. I've been hitting the heavy bag almost every day since buying these and they are as still as good as the day I received them. The leather hasn't cracked, there's no sign of splitting and they are comfortable to wear. The open part by the palm lets air in which is useful as my hands get sweaty when taped up, and there's good wrist protection too. For anyone looking to hit hard without getting hit in the pocket, these are a great choice.
