Everlast Leather Heavy Bag Gloves: Are They Worth
Is there a better known name brand in the world of boxing
gloves than Everlast?
Other than Ringside, it is doubtful that any other company
The fact that Everlast gloves are now sold in many retail
sporting goods shops adds to their popularity. Of course, that

Well, here is my personal experience: I bought a $30 pair of
bag gloves in 1998 and they are STILL in good shape 12 years
later. Okay, they are a little worn after so many years but they
provide excellent, adequate protection.
They were in perfect condition for 6 of those years so I can

When you purchase Everlast, you are definitely buying a pair
of gloves that live up to the hype. Then again, there really is

maybe (MAYBE) focus mitt training, wearing the 'cheapie' gloves
will present an injury risk.
