Century Open Palm Bag Gloves with Cinch Strap
Like the gloves!
I bought these gloves to sock the kickbox dummy at my gym. I had used an old pair of Everlast bag gloves that a trainer brought to a bootcamp class that I take. Rather than buy a newer version of that particular glove, I opted for the Century gloves. I like the open palm design -- they breathe & I don't have to be too concerned with accumulation of moisture (and mold & odor). I really like the sturdiness of these gloves & the secure fit made possible by the clinch strap. My only negative comment would be the smell of the new gloves. Wow, very strong vinyl odor. I aired them out in the garage for a couple of days before using. Not so bad now & certain to fade completely over time.
