Rated 5 out of 5 by GeorgeR Good quality hand wraps
I was a bit reluctant to buy this item, but one of my boxing buddies recommended these wraps as some the best on the market, so I bought two pairs.
I am using them for a few weeks now, and I am very, very happy with them. The fabric is a bit thicker than the one in the usual 180 in. hand wraps, and somehow less elastic. They are well made and very easy to use. Overall, I feel that these Mexican wraps provide better cushion to the knuckles and a more firm grip on the wrists, at least in my experience.
Definitely, a very good product, though it will definitely require more space in your gloves (when compared with the regular 180 in. wraps), so, if your gloves are already tight, when you have the wraps on, do not switch to Mexican wraps , as they may not fit in our gloves. On the positive side, I used the wraps also on the speed bag (and on the double-end bag) training (without gloves) and they provided the best combination of knuckle / fist cushion and relative freedom of movement of the fist /wrist.
I highly recommend this product; I feel that it helps best in protecting the knuckles and the wrist. I will definitely buy some more, when the two pairs I bought wear out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by heavybag cast-like protection
Unlike the thinner everlast wraps (which I like too by the way), these are thicker (much thicker) and wider too. The wraps have a cast-like feel of protection that really makes a difference for brittle hands, power punchers, and dudes with the cheaper heavy bags that feel like hitting a brick wall.
The velcro and durability is much higher than the everlast wraps.
I should note that the wraps take up more room, and will fit differently in your glove. If your glove's hand compartment is already small you may be disappointed with the fit.
I should also note that the relative lack of flexibility compared the the everlast wraps; you CANNOT wrap these super tightly. You wouldn't be able to make a fist.
