Punch With Precision | Expert Recommendations to Choose Women's Boxing Gloves

Precision, the ability to hit your target accurately and consistently, is key to your training and match success. Precision prevents injuries by reducing the risk of missing the target and hitting a hard surface.

By having the right boxing gloves!

Having the right pair of boxing gloves goes a long way in preventing boxing and workout-related accidents.

The right pair of women’s boxing gloves protects your hands, enhances your performance, and gives you the confidence to step into that ring or training room. 

We will take you through factors to consider to get suitable boxing gloves for women and recommend some.

Factors to Consider When Choosing Boxing Gloves for Women

Fit and Comfort

Boxing gloves come in different sizes and weights. Common sizes range from 8 oz to 18 oz. The right size depends on your weight and hand size.

Heavier gloves provide more protection for your hands and your sparring partner, while lighter gloves are often preferred for speed and bag work.

When choosing gloves, make sure they should not be too tight or too loose on your hands. They should also not restrict your finger movement or cause any pain or discomfort. You should be able to make a fist and open your hand easily and naturally. 

Remember to wear hand wraps or quick wraps under your gloves to provide extra protection and support to your hands and wrists.

Wraps can also affect the size and fit of your gloves. With our Tussle gloves, our sizes are factored with hand wraps on but size up by one when you intend to use quick hand wraps.

For women's hands, a small or medium-sized glove like the Women's Hybrid Boxing Gloves from Tussle can fit.

Material and Padding of the Gloves

When it comes to the material, leather takes the trophy. 

While synthetic materials might be cheaper, usually, they don’t last as long as leather gloves and are less breathable.

Why leather gloves?

Leather gloves are:

  • Durable, making them a lasting solution as they can withstand rigorous training sessions and frequent use.
  • Breathable allowing air to circulate and reducing the risk of discomfort and excessive sweating during sessions.
  • Comfortable as they conform to the shape of your hand over time, giving you a comfortable and personalized fit.
  • Appealing, often have a polished and stylish appearance, adding a touch of sophistication to your gear while maintaining a professional look.

The material of the padding is also important, as it determines the shock absorption, protection, and shape of your gloves. Foam and gel are the most common padding materials. 

Foam padding is the most widely used and comes in different densities and qualities. Whereas gel padding is more expensive and offers better shock absorption and comfort, it can also make the gloves heavier and stiffer.

Whichever padding is used, choose gloves that have enough padding to protect your hands. The padding in your gloves should be evenly distributed to ensure consistent hand protection.

Design and Construction

The design affects the style and functionality of your boxing gloves. The most important aspects of the design are the closure system, wrist support, and the breathability of the gloves.

Lace-up and Velcro closure systems are common. Lace-up gloves offer a customized and snug fit but are time-consuming while velcro are more convenient, durable, easy to use, and provide a snug secure fit.

Wrist support is determined by the length, width, and stiffness of the cuff. It prevents wrist injuries and enhances your punching power and precision. Look for gloves with a long, wide, and stiff cuff that wraps around your wrist securely and comfortably.

Boxing gloves should be breathable to keep your hands cool, dry, and comfortable. Breathable gloves prevent the growth of bacteria and unpleasant odors. 

Get gloves made of breathable material like leather and have a breathable design like the female's Hybrid Boxing Gloves that have an open palm.
