Pro Impact Mexican Style Boxing Handwraps 180" with Closure – Elastic Hand & Wrist Support for Muay Thai Kickboxing Training Gym Workout or MMA for Men & Women - 1 Pair Review:


My wife and I began training in Muay Thai several months ago. We bought a few pairs of these wraps. The did the job very well. However, I will say they are not ideal for me. I now have Pro Impact, Meister, and Fairtex wraps. The Fairtex wraps are my favorite, Meister second, and Pro Impact last.

Primarily, this is because both the Meister and Fairtex wraps are thinner and have more stretch. This may not be an issue for everyone though. I don't have the biggest hands in the world, but I do have large square palms that take up a lot of room inside my gloves. Because of this, the Pro Impact wraps a little stiff and bulky, which causes some discomfort in my fingers after a wearing my 12oz gloves for a while. Meister and Fairtex are more comfortable for me because they don't create as much bulk in the gloves, but still feel secure. The Fairtex is my favorite because they are also not as wide, which makes it more comfortable when running the wraps between my sausage fingers. However, the Fairtex wraps are also the most expensive by a large margin.

The reason I only took one star off, in spite of these issues, is because this is not the case for my wife. Her hands are almost as long as mine, but significantly thinner and she actually prefers the Pro Impact wraps over the others. She does not find them constraining inside gloves the way I do. The lack of stretch helps her secure them better and the extra thickness provides extra cushion over the knuckles for her. In other words, she likes them for the exact same reasons I don't.

Pro:
These are affordable and break in nicely after a few practices and washes.
They're not as as stretchy as other brands, so it may be easier for some people to secure them.
They are thick so they provide a nice layer of padding over the knuckles.

Con:
They need a few practices and washes to break them in.
The lack of stretch can make them feel stiff
They are thick so it can be bulky inside your gloves if you have big hands.



Liberlupus Boxing Hand Wraps for Men & Women, 120 & 180 Inches Wraps for Boxing Gloves, Handwraps with Hand & Wrist Support for Boxing Kickboxing Muay Thai MMA Review:


The Liberlupus handwraps are amazing!!! I have to honestly say that I purchased quite a few brands since I have been boxing at my gym and one lives and learns. I’m not one to bash a brand but Everlast handwraps are a 1 on a scale from 1 to 10 where 1 is the worst and 10 is the best. And I have to truthfully state that The Liberlupus is a 10!!! The best handwraps that I have purchased so far. I also purchased another brand “Nature” and I used them today and the handwraps were awkward and thick. Liberlupus isn’t thick, the material is one with the hand, it’s a synergistic perfect match for the hands. Liberlupus handwraps definitely gave me a powerful and happy workout with the boxing bag!!!



Sanabul Elastic Professional 180 inch Handwraps for Boxing Kickboxing Muay Thai MMA Review:


This is the first time I'm trying out elastic wraps. Previously I've only had not-so-stretchy cotton wraps, not because of preference but because that's what I picked up from my gym. While the cotton wraps provided good support and protection, I hated how it would get so rancid after just one workout. Since I started working out 5-6 times a week, I decided to try out different ones to use throughout the week, rather than washing the same pair every day.

I am, by no means, an athlete or a fighter. I'm just a dude trying to get in shape and lose weight. I do cardio kickboxing 5-6 times a week, about 30 mins at a time. There are about 3-4 rounds of heavy bag type work where you actually need the support. The rest of the time its different full body workouts, but you just have your handwraps on.

The wraps are very soft and seem to be sturdy. The stitching doesn't look like it will get undone anytime soon, but we'll see in a few months.

I realize I do need to apply these wraps a little tighter than I would on the cotton wraps. The first time I used it, I ended up tweaking my right wrist a little. I'm not going to fault the wrap just yet, because I do believe I didn't wrap my hands tight enough. I am able to wrap my hands tighter with these wraps without worrying about cutting off circulation.

One small thing, which I don't care personally, is that there is a slight color difference between the pair. The picture shows the wraps after 1 wash. It is more noticeable in person, but again, not that big of a deal.



Hawk Padded Inner Gloves Training Gel Elastic Hand Wraps for Boxing Gloves Quick Wraps Men & Women Kickboxing Muay Thai MMA Bandages Fist Knuckle Wrist Wrap Protector Handwraps (Pair) Review:


I purchased these gloves to save time during class, the hand wraps are a pain at times and takes too long. I was hesitant about purchasing the gloves due to some of the reviews stating the fingers were too tight. I attend boxing classes approx. 5-6 times a week and use these glove each class. They work well for me, I love the gloves and have not used my handwraps since I purchased these. The gloves were a little tight at first around the fingers, but after a few uses, the gloves are no longer tight. I am extremely satisfied with my purchase. I have had these for a little over a month and the gloves are working out very well...no falling apart, the stitching is good, etc. I currently have the red gloves and I want to order another pair in blue, but it's not available in the S/M size, so hope this size is available soon or in other colors in my size. This is the only downfall, they don't have another color available in my size.



Meister Adult 180" Semi-Elastic Hand Wraps for MMA & Boxing (Pair) Review:


I love these! I practice krav maga and I like to train without gloves so I can make sure my wrist/knuckle form is good and strengthen my wrists, but if you do this totally bare-knuckled often enough, you're bound to break the skin on your knuckles. So I got this pair of wraps and one other pair for myself so I could protect my knuckles and give a little wrist support, and these work very well. I tend to wrap them so that there is actually less padding on my knuckles and more around my wrist since I just want that tiny bit of protection, just enough not to break the skin, but you can obviously wrap them differently for a different goal. The wrap is just a little bit springy, which I like. It's also pretty soft, the softer of the two different products I purchased.
I wash these in a mesh laundry bag (so they don't get all knotted around all my other laundry) after every one or two uses and then hang dry and this process seems to be good for the wraps.
Would definitely recommend and purchase again.



Everlast Professional Hand Wraps Review:


Disclaimer: I bought these and adapted them to be wrist wraps, not hand wraps.

I bought these with the intention of using them as wrist wraps. My coach had recommended these and boy do they do the job. I'm an olympic weightlifter and I had been using wrist wraps and strengthwraps for a while, but was never happy with them. These did the trick perfectly. The material's great that it's soft enough and not too rough. After wrapping my wrist, I can still tighten or loosen it up as needed. And at the end of the day, it gets the job done and is a great wrist wraps.

These are super long (as they should be for hand wraps) but since I was using it as a wrist wrap, I had cut it shorter so that it wraps around my wrist 10x. Then I torched (or use your stovetop) the edige that I cut, so that there were no loose ends. Take a look at the picture to see how they are as wrist wraps.

I highly recommend it!



RDX Boxing Hand Wraps Inner Gloves for Punching – Fist Protection – Elasticated Padded Under Mitts with Quick Long Wrist Wrap – Great for MMA, Muay Thai, Kickboxing & Martial Arts Training Review:


These gel glove inserts were not due to arrive until 11 Jul 2017. I needed inserts for a beginner boxing class the following Monday, after beating my knuckles up the first week without any wraps/inner gloves. I purchased a pair of Everlast gel wrap gloves from Dick's Sporting Goods store for $29.99. I knew they were overpriced but, that was the best available. I wore the Everlast gel wrap gloves to the boxing class last week on Wednesday. I am 5'2 1/2 inches tall and weight about 130lbs. With the Everlast inner gloves, I felt the punches and even let out a small ouch at one point. But, when my RDX inner gloves arrived and I was able to use them in yesterday's boxing class...Wow! What a difference they made. They fit well into a 12 oz gloves and I was not gingerly hitting the bag to avoid further pain as I had with the Everlast inserts. I didn't feel any pain and felt secure to give the punch my all. And, the price is reasonable and worth every penny. I also love the additional wrap that goes around to reinforce protection for the wrists. GREAT product! I am going to also look into the RDX brand for boxing gloves.



Venum Boxing Hand Wraps Review:


These are the perfect length, I was having trouble getting the Everlast 108" wraps all the way around the secure both my wrists and knuckles, so I decided to try a different brand/length. These fit so much better!
I even have small hands, I work in health care, so I wear gloves all day everyday, and I always wear smalls, I thought the 108" wraps would be enough, but I could never get them to wrap right. The 4 meter wraps fit perfect, enough wrap to cover everything and there isn't a bunch left over so I'm not wrapping all the way up my arm.

Only reason it's not getting 5 starts- The fabric is breathable, but not really strong. I wore them under boxing gloves so I can't say they weren't protective, but it feels like it could tear very easily if used alone on a heavy bag. Also, the stitching is a little loose around the Venum emblem, as well as the Velcro strap. They don't seem like they will hold up too long, but then again, they were cheaper.
I like the length, but I think next time I need wraps, I'll spring for more expensive ones.

***Will update if any problems occur***



EMRAH PRO Training Boxing Inner Gloves Hand Wraps MMA Wraps Mitts - X Review:


So much easier than typical wraps. Better protection for your knuckles. I'm a heavy weight at 225 and do bag work and personal training sessions 3 times a week. I've been using these under my 16 oz gloves for about 3 months now.

Only complaint, the index finger has a smaller hole for your finger to fit thru so your finger goes numb the first few times you use them. It's not because I have large hands it's just the way the company Stitches the glove together. My wife wears a medium and has the same issue. But once you break them in and wash them a few times they are very convenient and I would buy them again.



Ringside Mexican Style Boxing Hand Wraps (Pair) Review:


The lengths are correct and they are matching. I have a pair of blue ones that are a few years old before the velcro started wearing out and losing grip during training. One thing I noticed is the "This Side Down" print started fading immediately on the first use. Furthermore, this print actually bled onto the handwraps. Not a big deal, but I don't get why it happened on the very first use. It gives parts of the wraps a dirty appearance even though it's just ink from the print.
Also, the "This Side Down" print on one of the wraps is printed on the wrong side. Still works fine, but I just have to mark the one that's printed wrong. Lastly, my blue handwraps that are a few years old feel more stretchy than these new ones. Maybe they just need to break in, maybe they changed their quality over the years. Despite the flaws, I only deducted one star because I still like this brand better than Everlast.
