I'm starting my standup game again, but I wanted to use my own gear this time around because I am switching between a few gyms to train striking and would just feel more comfortable always having my own gear.

Does anyone have any experience with this brand or these specific products??

I was just looking for a nice headgear/glove combo. The thing that obviously drives me towards this is the price.. ~$100 for a rashguard, headgear, 18oz gloves (not sure what to think about a pair of 18oz's...), and some handwraps.

I was initially drawn towards a venum set for sparring, but I would be looking at about double the price.. which I wouldn't mind paying if the quality gap was also double.

For this gear I'll mostly be training boxing and MMA Standup.

So, opinions on the Throwdown by Affliction and Venum training gear.

Thanks in advance,
Sheerrrrrrrrrdoggers.
 
I haven't used that gear but from experience the cheaper package deals normally sacrifice a large amount of quality to get that price point that low. If you know the more expensive gear that you want is of a quality that is good for what you're doing then I'd just pay more.

Take that as you will though, and if you do buy the package deal and it's not cheap quality let everyone know. :)
 
I hear Throwdown makes decent gear, but it doesn't last too long compared to real boxing gear. If you are on a budget, I would go for this set.
 
Not a bad price at all. I would go for this for starting out on a budget. I have read reviews on those gloves and they were all pretty decent. The Venum stuff.....more money but also better quality imo.
 
They won't be great, but should to do start with. Maybe grab a pair of KO Fight Gear 12oz for $40 to use on the bag and save those 18oz for sparring? It's generally reccomended to have separate pairs for bag/pad work and sparring.
 
I bought that package months ago for a guy in my school.

The gloves are GREAT.
The head gear is good but kinds blocks side vision.

The other stuff is filler.

They have those gloves for $39 sometimes, so just jump on them instead of the package.

I bought it to review, and sold the items individually and made my money back.

For $25!!!Looks like a steal.

They have a good review here:

Another GREAT option is the top ten factory seconds on ebay. I recently bought a pair for bag work and did not find any defect:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-TOP-TEN...443&pid=100015&prg=1006&rk=2&sd=181053754949&

Combine them with this headgear:

or even this:

And you have a better package...for less money!!!

Wow, that is great. I really appreciate the time and effort that you put into making this post. I'll probably go with those gloves, probably a different headgear though.

once again, thank you!!

No problem at all...

If you favor visibility - this is your best choice - excellent trade off between visibility and protection (not too much nose protection, though):

I bought one, but I need a bit more nose protection - I am not too quick :) Everything else is absolutely awesome.

Go for this headgear and you will not regret it.

Let me know how it goes.

Best,
Gus
