    I recently came across this company called JABB - Fight Gear For Champions

    They seem to have some really cheap, good quality apparel, what do you guys think? Has anyone tried these? They kind of remind me of the Sabas's and UMA's.

    To my understanding, their a new up and coming company. The gloves are made in Pakistan and can also be ordered custom. I found them through eBay, immediately noticed the craftsmanship and decided to post a topic on them.

    I contacted them on facebook and in the nearby future, they plan on releasing Velcro's as well as head gear. I think their normal designs are pretty unique by itself. Far as the padding goes, I didn't get too much on that yet.

    Poor choice of name I think considering there's already the brand JAAB, which Kelly Pavlik always used to use in training

    14 oz JABB - Boxing Gloves

    Regardless of the name, I ordered a pair of these gloves. With the price point, you can't really go wrong. Here's a few pro's and cons.

    First of all, the owner of the company Andrew is a really friendly guy, is open to suggestions and is quick in his replies.

    As for the gloves, I'm not familiar with the type of leather they use. The gloves are manufactured in Pakistan, it seems like they know what they are doing with room for improvements here and there. The padding seems like a 3 layered padding which feels very protective, yet gives a good pop to the bag. The weight of the glove is also on point, custom orders are possible. From what I understand, they use 2 different types of gloves. You'd have to ask about it on their facebook page though.

    The glove feels like it has a narrow hand compartment, more narrow than the Reyes yet has enough space for bigger hands as well. Once they break in, they feel like pillows.

    Below, I posted some side to side comparisons with my 14oz reyes so you get a better understanding of the profile on the glove.

    Here's a link to their facebook page:

    *note*
    both gloves are 14oz

    pros
    great stitching
    compact glove
    great bag feedback (uses a 3 layered foam)
    feels very comfortable
    seems durable
    grip bar feels right
    great thumb (doesn't feel tight, much like a grant like thumb, doesn't feel as awkward as the Reyes)
    price point, these gloves cost only £35.00!

    cons
    minor (I'd use different laces)
    take a while to break in
    padding near the laces could be distributed better
    the vent holes could be poked in better, more evenly

    The owner told me they didn't do enough research on the name. It could very well be they change it in the near future. It doesn't take anything away from the gloves though.

    It's a shame, wish you can throw a cross or uppercut with these gloves. So that is like brown and blue, not black and blue right? Look pretty good for the price.

    How's the wrist? Look like they can flex quite a lot without tight lacing and a lot of tape. Am I wrong?

    It's grey and blue, I think they look good but also would've preferred black instead of grey.

    The wrist is really protective, I just don't like the padding with the palm. For catching shots, I'd say it's a lesser glove. Also I would use a different type of leather. Not because it's a bad leather but because I don't like the smell, texture and haven't seen it being used in a glove before. The leather feels a little too smooth to me, kind of like the leather they use on some jackets. Maybe it's cause I'm so attached to my reyes. I can only compare with what I've had and from that aspect, I've tried and owned about 10 different types/brands of gloves.

    I don't use any tape, I just lace it and put a band around them or use minimal tape just to cover the laces. If anything, I'd use a lace converter and would replace the laces with thinner ones or perhaps elastic ones. Personally, I'm not a fan of the thick laces. It's a minor con though since laces are easily replaceable. You could probably order a pair in your local sports store, combat sports store or even aliexpress for a couple of bucks.

    Edit: Maybe this gives you a better estimate, they recently posted this on their facebook.
