The Drako Songbird Sparring Gloves are an ideal training glove for pad and bag work. The padding weight in these gloves is distributed to make the glove top-heavy, making it perfect for sparring scenarios whether training with someone else or practicing bag work.
Note: the ounces measurement refers to the weight of the padding the glove has, but also to the size of the hand compartment. The 8oz and 10oz sizes are best suited for children and young adult hands and the 12-16oz sizes are best for adult hands; however, the adult sizes are one-size-fits-all.
12oz boxing gloves: this glove is ideal for pad and bag work for both male and female students. It is the #1 choice for cardio kickboxing and boxing classes.
16oz boxing gloves: these gloves are best for sparring sessions and rigorous training because they offer a large amount of protection for the user and help to prevent injuries.
Note: we provide this size guide to give you a good idea of which glove is best for you, but it is always better to consult your instructor or one of our staff. That way, you can be sure about which glove is perfect for your needs. Ask your instructor if the Drako Songbird Sparring Gloves are right for you!
