They offer high levels of protection. When you take these things as well as the other positives and negatives into consideration we agree that these gloves are an exceptional value.

Material

The outer shell of this glove is made of synthetic leather. Not all synthetic leather is created equal. Venum uses truly high-quality synthetic leather that feels and looks great. This is not the case with many others that use this type of material. As previously mentioned, they contain several layers of foam to help keep your hands protected. They also use a mesh panel through the palm. The strap is covered in the same synthetic leather as the outer shell. It again has a large piece of velcro at the closure to help secure it and keep it in place. These are all common materials used in this type of boxing glove. They are, however, better quality than others using the same types of items.

Breathability

We, as well as customers, are impressed with the breathability of this boxing glove. Boxing gloves are not known for being very breathable, in fact, quite the opposite. More often than not boxing gloves offer simple perforation in the palm and this does not allow them to breathe very well. This glove, on the other hand, uses a mesh panel in the Palm. This mesh panel promotes excellent airflow and makes this glove much more breathable than many others. This really works to the fighters Advantage. When your hands stay cool and dry you will be able to work harder and longer without causing detriment to your skin. Obviously, this will allow you to enhance your technique more quickly and reach your goals more easily.

Purpose

You'll be able to use these gloves for a variety of purposes. They really are versatile and consumers are impressed with how many different things they can use them for. Due to the fact they are easy to take on and off without a partner, they are perfect for those of you that train at home.

They are excellent to use while working with your sparring partner as they will keep you both well protected. While you are working with your trainer they will also suit you well. You can use them while working on a speed bag or a heavy bag. The only thing these gloves aren't great for is practicing grappling. This is due to the fact that you will experience the restricted movement of your fingers.

Weight

These gloves come in all of the standard weights you would expect. They are available in 8, 10, 12, 14, and 16 oz weights. Figuring out which you need is not as difficult as some expect. It is based on how much you weigh. It is important to understand that each brand may use a slightly different scale. So, you will want to look over the size charts before deciding which glove you wish to purchase. If you find your having a difficult time speaking with your trainer may be advantageous. Typically, they can give you some great advice on what weight you need. For the most part, 8 oz gloves are for exceptionally small people or even youth fighters.

Unlike genuine leather that requires special cleaners and conditioners, you will be able to simply wipe these gloves down.
