Everlast Neoprene Heavy Bag Gloves
Plenty of room for wrapped hands
I saw these gloves in the local store and tried them on without my hands being wrapped. I was concerned that I would not be able to fit my hands into them with hand wraps on. I was also concerned with these ease of putting them on and taking them off while my hands were wrapped. So I held off on purchasing them untill I could try them on with my hands wrapped.
So after coming into the store three times with my handwraps, the first two times the product was out of stock. The third time I wrapped up in store and tried the gloves on, plenty of room for my wrapped hands. I also found that putting them on and taking them off to be easy enough.
These gloves are NOT designed for contact. They are only used for hitting the heavy bag, speed bag, double end bag, or other padded targets. People who are complaining about the lack of thumb protection might be using these gloves for the wrong purpose. These are NOT designed for sparring or grappling. These are not "boxing gloves" they are "bag gloves". If you need boxing gloves, purchase another product. If you want to whale away at the heavy bag, these will do just fine. Wrap your hands to protect your wrists, don these gloves and go to town on the bag.

The gloves and my punching bag were a surprise gift and has been used since I received them. They are something I could have used long ago.

Great for kickboxing!
I use these for a very fast paced kickboxing class that uses a heavy bag. I can punch and punch and feel totally protected the whole time. Since I am a female- my hands are small and they fit nice, not tight and I like that they are VERY LIGHT. They do get a little sweaty and hot compared to my other pare of knuckle gloves but these have more support for the bag. My only concern is for my thumb- I wish it was a little more covered.

Great for a beginner with a heavy bag.
Bought these for my husband to go with his new heavy bag. He really enjoys them and finds that they work well.

Cheap and impractical
I bought these as bag gloves, but was very disappointed. The construction felt like they wouldn't last, and the thumb hole left no place for your thumb. I couldn't wrap it around my index finger and any other position felt uncomfortable. I was worried I might break my thumb and returned them. This might work for a cardio class, but not legit bag work.

Decent gloves the only problem is that they aren't very durable and start breaking down, especially the knuckle area where you're punching.

good for heavy bag
The only thing i didnt like was that there was about a 1/2 inch extra peice of thread on the glove where it ended.
