    Just got these from Fed Ex.

    Made to order item from https://www.muaythai-fighting.com/

    16 oz
    Brown/Black

    Leather is fantastic, more natural feeling than Twin's special, very, "grainy". feels like the leather you get on a good desk chair

    Most comfortable boxing gloves I've ever used. More comfortable than twins special, a little larger in the pocket than twins.

    Similar foam to twins, multi-layer, soft outside, stiff inside

    The stitching is fantastic, but the leather on these really stands out and is exceptional and natural feeling. Satin inner lining, silky smooth

    Wrist support looks flat, but when you tightening the strings, it really does hold your wrist really well. better than twins and top kings.

    Haven't used them yet, just an initial impression. these gloves are special.

    Is the thumb a good length? I've noticed that the lace-ups have shorter thumbs than the velcro.

    Let us know when you use them, we've been getting reports that Boon has been using bad quality leather. Hopefully they have better materials now...

    I've just received mine today (12oz lace up). I ordered from monstermuaythai and requested the darkest brown they have. In my room (medium lighting) it looks almost black like the 2nd pic first post. In direct sunlight it looks more like the first pic posted by Minowafanatic.
    Only complaint is they sent in white laces :rolleyes:

    Just got a pair of H&L Boons from a US distributor (not Title) - who treated me extremely well - but unfortunately the 16oz were the ones with the white powder issue. Other than that they feel good.

    Te distributor himself said he will no longer carry Boon because of its poor QC!

    A guy at my gym bought 16oz H&L Boons, I wonder how they will hold up.

    I bought a pair of Boons about 2 years ago. Been hitting the pads and heavy bag work 2-3 times a week every week since then...still like new.

    I bought a pair of Boons last September from TITLE and they had the white powder. I didn't think much of it--It looked like talcum or baby powder. Are you worried about inhaling it? There is a very minor link between talc--in its natural form--and cancer. However, modern manufactured talc powder is supposed to be safe.

    The gloves were and are still great btw. I'm sorry to hear that some batches have been having qc issues. What a shame.
