Brand

For twenty years RDX Sports has been working to provide fighters with affordable gear and equipment options without reducing the quality of their items. They started out because items like gloves, punching bags, rings, and other training tools were outrageously expensive and not of very good quality. They wanted to do something better. That is when this brand was born. Whether you are interested in Karate, Boxing, Judo, or other combat sports, RDX has what you require to be successful. Investing in a fight-related future regardless of if it is for fun or for a competition can be very pricey. When the prices are affordable, typically, the quality is awful. That is not what you will find when you decide to buy your gear from this brand. They work hard to keep up with the latest technologies and they continue to grow and tweak their lines. Consumers are very happy with the results they get from the use of RDX products.

Materials

This brand uses a few more materials than others and what did he quills to is very well functioning pair of mitts. The outer material is made from genuine leather. This is a common outer material as it is exceptionally durable and relatively easy to care for. It can stand up to constant abuse with no problem. Where this product is really impressive is in the foam. They use a double layer to offer great impact absorption. They use to trademark types of foam which are referred to as, EVA-Lution and Supremo-Shock Foam. They are both amazing at absorbing impact. They wanted to reduce the shock that your hands, fingers, and wrists would take so, they included a layer of material that they refer to as a Shell Shock Equilibrium Sheet. It uses a large piece of Velcro that goes through a hook and loop style closure to secure this item. Overall, all of the materials being used are high-quality and built to last.

Fit

Consumers are referring to the fit of this item with adjectives like great, perfect, and exactly what they've been looking for. Obviously, if this is how people feel you can rest assured that you were going to get an exceptional fit. This is achieved by a couple of different features. These are large enough to accommodate people with big hands. This means that the pocket will be deep enough that your fingers will fit in comfortably. The adjustable strap makes it so that these gloves will also fit those of you that have very small hands. People have noted that it is a rather snug fit. However, over time they will break in and feel as if they were made just for you. A major component in the way this fit is the half ball in the palm. This is common to these type of training items as it improves the grip as well as the overall fit. Overall, people are very happy with the fit and there are very few complaints in this category.

Breathability

You will be getting a decent level of breathability when you invest in this item. They have worked mesh panels into the design to help improve the air flow. The technology that is used behind it they referred to as Cool-X Mesh. This material is going to help Wick moisture away from your hands giving you the coolest and driest environment possible. Keep in mind that if you're training for hours, no matter what you are wearing on your hands, it is going to become hot and sweaty. This item really does do a pretty good job at breathing and keeping your hands comfortable regardless of the length of your routine. This type of training item is not typically very breathable and so the fact that this item does have a decent level of breathability is a pretty big Advantage. You won't find it everywhere else.

Protection

These mitts are going to give you a better level of protection than many others that are currently available to you. This is because of the great technology we find inside of it. The type of foam that this product uses is going to absorb much more impact than standard foams. There is a layer that is infused with gel. Gel is superior at absorbing impact. This means that your hands, wrists, and fingers are going to take less impact and therefore you will feel much better. You will also be less susceptible to injuries in these areas. These nuts are going to be able to handle not only punches but also elbows and even kicks. They really do an amazing job of absorbing impact. This is not only great news for the coach or sparring partner that is working with a fighter but it is also good news for the fighter. The fact that these pads absorb the better it is in helping you continue to feel your best. Overall, you are going to get a great level of protection while using this product.

Comfort

Everybody is singing the same song and concerns about the level of comfort of this item. What they are saying is that they are amazingly comfortable. There was one comment that a consumer felt that they were a bit bulky. However, this was only said one time. When you are working with a fighter for long hours the level of comfort your gear provides plays a major role in how long you'll be able to last. These gloves are exceptionally comfortable so wearing them for hours and hours is not going to be a big deal. You'll be able to go into every one of your training sessions knowing that these mitts can handle the continuous strikes that they will be taking and keep you feeling great. There are a lot of aspects of this item that make it so comfortable. Things like ventilation and moisture wicking material certainly play the role. This secure fit also helps to keep you comfortable as you'll know you don't have to worry about these sliding around or flying off. This also means you don't have to worry about sustaining injuries while wearing them.

Weight

These Mets do weigh a bit more than your average pair. This is not exceptionally surprising considering the materials that they are made out of. Not only is cowhide leather a bit heavier but the superior foam padding is also a bit heavier than other options. This is due to the fact that it is infused with gel. It is also a nice thick layer of padding to keep you truly protected. So, while this does way a slight bit more than other options it is well worth it. It is likely you're not going to notice the difference. There is a chance that your muscles will fatigue a bit more quickly because they are a little bit heavier, however, there have been no complaints by consumers in regards to this. Together the pair weighs roughly 1 and 1/2 pounds. In comparison, the typical pair comes in at about one and a quarter pounds. So, as you can see the difference is negligible and the level of protection you get makes it worth it for most users.

Advantages

There are definitely a few advantages to using this product that you won't get with others. It is a more versatile training tool than some of the cheaper versions. This is due to the fact that they absorb impact better than most others. So, you will not only be able to handle punches while wearing them but also kicks. Typically, taking a kick to a punching mitt can be very painful for the coach or sparring partner that is wearing them. Another advantage in choosing this item is the fantastic longevity of use that you will get out of them. All of the materials that are used are top quality and built to last. When you are training someone in a combat sport you obviously need equipment that is going to hold up to constant abuse. This option from RDX absolutely will. One other Advantage is the secure fit that it offers to such a large variety of hand sizes. The adjustability of this item is excellent which makes it suitable for just about everyone.

Disadvantages

It was actually fairly difficult to find disadvantages associated with this product. Obviously, this is uncommon as Adams today tend to be a bit disappointing. One consumer did note that they found them to be a bit large and bulky. This could make transporting them a bit of an annoyance, however, it's not really a disadvantage. We feel like the fact that they are bit bulky is due to the fact that they provide such great protection to the wearer. When you are training on a daily basis and taking strike after strike you need to know that you are well protected. Otherwise, you could have sustained injuries like broken bones. This can take you away from your chosen fights for or from your Fighters for quite some time. Overall, we're pretty impressed that these were the only negative aspects we could find about this product.

Value

The cost of this piece of equipment is a bit higher than other options. It will not fit is easily into tight budgets, however, they truly are worth the investment. Consumers feel as if this item is an excellent value and we would have to agree. You are going to get a lot of use out of them. Whether you are using them at home with a family member or taking them to the gym to work with a variety of Fighters they will stand up to the challenge. This makes the price more understandable. In addition, they are going to absorb more impact and keep you feeling better than others that you have probably worn in the past. It is an obvious advantage to your overall health when you are taking less impact on fragile bones and joints. Overall, we don't feel like you could go wrong by investing into this product and believe that you'll be truly satisfied with it from the first time you use it and every time thereafter.

Bottom Line

There are a ton of different options available to you on the market today and it can be extremely difficult to find the one that suits all of your needs. This product has so many positives we couldn't even list them all. And when looking at the disadvantages they are not only minimal but they are not true disadvantages in our opinion. You will be making a bit more of an investment when you go with this option from RDX Sports, however, they're going to last you longer than many other options. You won't have to worry about the seams bursting in the middle of using them because this brand has paid attention to the details and reinforced the areas that need it the most. All of the people using them are exceptionally satisfied and it is likely that you will be too.
