    I remember this brand has popped up before. Gloves don't look bad, but they're asking for too much money when their brand is unestablished. For that cost, I would definitely spend money elsewhere. Cletos or IMFs would be a much better bet for the same cost/a little bit more.

    I've tried one of their gloves before. Actually I ordered their bag gloves, but they didn't have the size I wanted, so I got these:

    http://shop.boundboxing.com/bound-boxing-sparring-training-gloves.html

    The gloves are a little different than the picture. The thumbs are not nearly as curved. Actually, the thumbs don't have much padding and are somewhat straight.The inside feels very unique its like a soft cotton material, not my favorite, but not uncomfortable either. The knuckle foam was thick more medium density, but the wrist was super hard, almost too hard. Based on the description, you'd think they were like rival gloves, but they feel completely different.

    The craftsmanship was very average. In the end, the gloves were kind of odd shaped and felt weird. For what they charge, I could get some fairtex gloves made to order, (which is what I did) once I returned them.

    Agree. It's gotta be tough trying to break into an already saturated market. Then you gotta compete with the established guys on pricing, with a glove that could potentially be subpar.

    On the glove itself, it looks decent. The big ass BB Bound Boxing logo over the knuckle kills it for me.
