Got these for kickboxing at a Martial Arts school. They are a little big for my hands (small, female) so I will need wraps, just to fill some space and make them feel more secure. The mesh on the palm side is nice so that my hands don't get too sweaty and hot, which was distracting when I had to borrow gloves that did not have the mesh. My instructor, a 4th degree BB in taekwondo, liked the gloves, so I guess that is something. And they were a great price!
