Hello,
My question is about boxing glove fitting:I train 12 onz and am @ 57 kg but I find that even with, in my opinion qualitiy gloves, like Booster, they tend to be loose around my wrists so turn easily when I block kicks f.e. Probably cause Im small maybe its something more common in females. Does anybody know a brand with tighter wrist lock or has other advice?

I like them. I have tendinitis in my wrist from work so I wanted a nice and sturdy wrist on my gloves for support. I have somewhat small hands and they fit me well.

I have the Top King double wrist lock gloves (neon colors) in 10oz.

 

I also got them (16oz in light blue) maybe because of the bigger size but the 2nd loop is so long, always leave so "velcro" open, not great for clinching. But it secures the wrist good, yes.

(the color came off quite fast, but they are still the same, just with some white mixed with the blue)

 

I also got Twins 10oz with their special wrist protection closure (see picture below) and they fit also good around the wrist.

The Hayabusa Tokushu Regenesis Gloves have really good protection for small wrists due to the double wrist straps. I have the 10oz and weigh under 50kg.

The outer material is also extremely durable and after almost everyday use for the past 1.5 years (I use them for pads, bags and sparring), there are barely any signs of wear and tear. They were quite expensive though so the above options may be more suitable depending on your budget.

Hello, bbf3, 515, NewThai, Really interesting to read about everybody's experiences! Generally most of you use double lock systems for wrists I think. I think they should adapt boxing gloves for women or small people in general better for this, instead of make them pink :)

I only ever owned a pair of Twins 10oz (BGVL-3) and 12oz (BGVLA-1) ever. I have tiny hands; I love the wrist closure, plus the way it wraps around my fist nice and snug. :)

I've found that Fairtex (BVG1, BVG12, etc.) generally fit more snug than Top King or Twins (though I haven't tried the fancy Twins that 515 posted above).
