How to choose Hand wraps
The hand wrap is an essential part of your boxing equipment along with your boxing gloves. A hand wrap aims to protect your knuckles, stabilise the wrist, protects the thumb, soaks up perspiration and fills out a glove.
A hand wrap protects your wrist by keeping the wrist in the correct position while punching. If you've sustained any wrist injuries from boxing, a hand wrap is definitely recommended for injury protection.
Another benefit of hand wraps is sweat protection. Sweat can ruin the life of a glove and a hand wrap helps soak up the sweat inside the glove.
How to choose Quick wraps
The major benefit of quick wraps is saving time from hand wrapping before every training session. A quick wrap will protect your hands to a lesser extent compared to a hand wrap.
How to choose Cotton Inners
When you're buying cotton inners, always buy a high-quality cotton inner instead of cheaper inners. A high-quality cotton inner will last much longer and they can be re-washed over and over. Although, they will shrink after many washes.
At Punch Equipment we provide a commercial-grade cotton inner, which can last up to 6-12 months of training. Most adults will choose the large size, whereas the small/medium sizes are ideal for children and small ladies.
