Brand

Pro Impact is a brand that has not been around as long as others that we are familiar with like TITLE Boxing and Hayabusa, however, they are doing a good job at making a name for themselves in the world of fight sports. Starting out with a few simple products, they perfected them and then continued to grow. Now you are able to find high-quality gloves, punching bags, clothing, gear, and equipment from them all at relatively affordable prices. They provide options for boxers, as well as, mixed martial artists and fitness enthusiasts. With continued research and development, we are excited to see what this brand will come up with next. It is easy to put trust in this company as they truly stand behind their products. If you are unsatisfied with any purchases of their items, simply contact the company and they will do what it takes to make it right. Overall, this brand is up and coming. We expect them to become a leader as time goes on.

Materials

All of the reports are the same and concerns to the materials of this option, they are better quality than most. The outer material is made from genuine leather. This is a typical material to be used as it is exceptionally durable and can withstand constant abuse easily. It is important to note that not all leather is created equal in this is of higher quality than many other options. Inside is a durable high-density foam. It is quite a bit thicker than others you may have used in the past and, in turn, it absorbs more impact. This means that you're going to feel last when you're taking hard strikes from the heavy hitter. There is a large strap that goes through a hook and loop style closure. It is secured with velcro. You'll want to check out your Velcro every once in a while to make sure it is free of debris. As long as you do this it will give you long-lasting sticking power that you won't have to worry about coming loose. Overall, all of the materials being used are great choices and very good quality.

Fit

People seem to be really pleased with the fit of this item. You slide your hand into an area that is glove-like. It is going to accommodate large hands, as well as, small hands. The large piece of velcro that slides through the hook and loop closure also adds the level of adjustability that will help in terms of the fit. You'll be able to make it nice and snug so you won't have to worry about them sliding around or falling off during training sessions. Obviously, these are aspects you want to avoid as they could lead to injury that can take you out of the game. Commit itself is contoured for security and comfort. There is also a palm ball that improves your overall grip while wearing these. It helps to secure the fit. Consumers have mentioned that these are exceptionally easy to hold onto and they are very impressed with the fact that it never feels like they're going to fly off their hands during use.

Breathability

This product does not offer the best level of breathability, however, it also isn't the worst. They have built-in some features to help improve airflow to the glove-like a portion of this mitt. Their whole strategically placed near the knuckles that will allow more air to get inside. Obviously, the better the airflow the cooler and more comfortable your hands are going to be in addition, they have used a liner that helps to remove moisture away from your skin. This sweat-wicking liner will help to ensure that you don't succumb to skin breakdowns or dry rubbed areas. These can be very painful and make it difficult to wear your mitts and continue to train your fighters. Overall, these breathe okay but are not the most breathable option out there. For some people, this is a big deal but for most, it really isn't. Wearing this type of equipment means a warm environment regardless of the level of breathability. This is especially true when you are training multiple fighters in a row.

Protection

You will be getting a high level of protection when you are wearing these mitts. They use a bit more foam padding than other brands which helps to absorb more impact. The last shock your fingers, wrists, and hands are taking the better you're going to feel. A good level of protection will help you avoid injuries that are unwanted and also unnecessary. There are many fragile bones in your hands and if they're not well protected you could end up breaking them. Obviously, this is something that coaches, sparring partners, and fighters all want to avoid. The curved nature of the design helps to ensure your wrists stay decently protected as well. The targeted strike zone will help the fighter land accurate punches. Another aspect that plays a role in your protection is the excellent fit that this product offers. Due to the fact that you won't have to worry about it sliding out of place or falling off of your hands, it reduces the worry of injuries. Overall, this option gives you better protection than many others in the same category.

Comfort

We expect that you'll be impressed with the level of comfort you have while wearing this item. All of the reviews are consistently positive in this area. With aspects like an adjustable fit, it's easy to see why they are so comfortable. It is important to note that the foam is very stiff in the beginning and takes a bit of time to break in. Once this has happened you will end up with a pair of mitts that feel like they were made just for you. Consumers really like the gloves style area that you put your hand in. It is comfortable and secure. It has been noted that the fit is quite snug but it is not overly tight so you don't have to worry about it cutting off your circulation and making you uncomfortable. This option is also decently breathable which plays its role in your overall Comfort. Eventually, after extremely long training sessions, it is going to be a sweaty environment that could be uncomfortable. This would happen with just about any option you choose.

Weight

These are a bit heavier than others in the same category. We were not overly surprised by this due to the high-quality materials that this brand has used in their construction. The use of genuine leather typically leads to a heavier product. It is important to note that not all leather is created equal and they use high-quality leather so, naturally, it is going to be a bit heavier. They also use a thicker layer of foam to keep you better protected. This too, adds some extra weight. Consumers have mentioned that these are a bit heavier but it is not a burden. Working with equipment that is heavy can really fatigue a coach. When you have to work through many training sessions in a row this can be a major problem. This product comes in at just over one and a half pounds for the pair. It is an aspect that you will want to take into consideration before deciding to call this item your own. Most people don't have any issue with the bit of extra weight but for some, it could be a deal-breaker.

Advantages

One of the biggest advantages of this product is The Versatile fit. Many options won't accommodate exceptionally large or small hands. You won't face that problem here. They are extremely easy to adjust and regardless of what size your hands are they are going to fit nicely. You won't have to worry about them flying off and sustaining injuries. Another advantage of this product is its exceptional durability. They have spent a lot of time and developing this item and making sure that all of the materials used are of the best quality. It is easily seen once you receive the item. You will be able to use them for years to come and through a plethora of training sessions with all different levels of fighters. They also offer enough protection that you will be able to train your fighter and punching as well as kicking without having to worry about being sore after

Disadvantages

There really aren't any major disadvantages associated with this item. There are a couple of things that consumers have mentioned that you may want to consider before deciding if this is the right product for you. One thing that has been mentioned frequently is the fact that these have a longer break in time than most. This can be a bit of frustration as they are quite stiff in the beginning. We don't really see this as a disadvantage as the stiffness does add to the overall durability and shock absorption that this item offers. The other note that consumers have made is that they are also a bit heavy and bulky. We have mentioned that they are, indeed, heavier than other options that are currently available to you this is the area we think you need to really consider. It is unlikely that they are heavy enough to cause serious fatigue, however, there are absolutely lighter options out there that are guaranteed to keep you feeling great regardless of how many hours you are spending working out at home or in the gym.

Value

This item is a pretty excellent value. It offers exceptional durability which means you'll be able to use them for years to come. The price tag that is associated with it is a bit higher than other options, however, they truly are better. Most budgets will be able to absorb it relatively easily, however, some may need to do a bit of saving before calling this item their own. When you are looking over all of the different aspects of this option it is pretty easy to see why so many are impressed with it. The value can be difficult to determine because it is really a subjective thing. We must say though that this product has been well thought out and will serve its purpose better than most others. You will have a higher level of protection and less chance of sustaining injuries while wearing them.

Bottom Line

When it comes down to it this is a solid option for a decent price. You won't have to worry about becoming exceptionally sore after arduous routines with a variety of fighters. In addition, you won't have to worry about how big or small your hands are as this product is going to basically fit everybody nicely. All of the materials that are used are of great quality. This can be seen in all of the simple details. A common problem with this type of training equipment is seam durability. There have been no notes from consumers about this item bursting-at-the-seams which is another advantage that we haven't mentioned. Overall, we believe that you will be more than impressed with this item in the way that it performs. Your fighters will also be happy as it keeps them just as protected as it keeps you. They are exceptionally versatile to train with.
