    Which one do you like best? I have only tried Cleto Reyes. How about the other brands and how do they compare to Cleto Reyes?

    Are Boxing Classics really similar to authentic Zepols? Similar feel/shape? What about the leather?

    What are the best Mexican gloves for people with slender/small hands? Most gloves seem to be very large inside.

    Do most Mexican boxers wear knuckle guards? Is that why the gloves are so big inside?

    Have you ever tried Palomares? Are they common? My friend has a pair and they felt nice.

    Sorry for so many questions.
    I moved back to Texas in 2006 and I have wanted to visit Mexico ever since; but with the border problems, I haven't been able to go.

    Hi.
    I must say You than Reyes and Seyer are the best constructed Mexican gloves.

    Zepol. Narrower than Reyes IMO have the best design of the Mexican gloves, extremely comfortable, very soft leather and 100% natural latex padd.
    Seyer. Narrower than Reyes, great quality construction, short cuff, in the begining are stiffer than all the other Mexican brands, very protective because its padd is hig compressed natural latex.
    Casanova. Wide in the pocket, very protective and great support to the wrist.
    JC Pacheco. Very, very nice gloves, great protection, stiff gloves in the begining, close in quality construction to Reyes and Seyer.
    Morales, good gloves for hard training
    Boxeo. Very Comfortable gloves all made in goat leather, well pad, a little "ugly" gloves, but very long lasting ones, Nacho Beristain have a lot of gym equipment by Boxeo.
    All the Mexican boxing gear are made to last and for comfort.

    Please feel free to ask.:)

    Zepol(father) have softer leather, IMO Zepol and Boxeo have the softest leather and the padding are natural latex, made to last, it is a shame You are not in M

    It is a matter of taste if I can recomend You Mexican gloves:

    If You like narrower gloves than Reyes I think You must go for Seyer or Zepol (Father)
    If You like wide gloves I think You must try Casanova.

    I don

    Seyer are more protective than Zepol and stiffer, some guys I sold Zepol said me than are already broke it.

    The main diferences between Original Zepol and Zepol

    I would really like some Zepols (father) but I can't afford them right now.
    Plus, I have an injury to my hand so I can't even punch.
    Maybe later?
    Thanks so much for your help!
