These gloves are light years better than the MMA Everlast gloves. Real leather, finger padding that extends down far enough to protect the second knuckle. Even with chewed up knuckles from my Everlast experience, these protected them so much that I didn't even break anything open!Note: There was a slight chemical smell to mine (leather or the dye used), but that seemed to go away with a workout, some Febreeze and Odor Eater powder.Durability seems good, although I just had one use.I would probably still recommend using wraps with the gloves, just to get extra support and protection. The gloves were a little tight with my hands in wraps. I would err on 1 size up if you use wraps. A medium was barely big enough for me.
