Unique Pros

  • Have all safety features
  • Provides good sparring training performance
  • No break in period

It has real cowhide leather which is durable for LONG sparring sessions. There are lots of padding and company says it can be usable for heavy bag, but I strongly recommend not to use it in heavy bag sessions. Even though it has lots of padding, its padding memory is not superior. It means after your punch the heavy bag, the padding won’t return the original place and won’t give you good punching experience in heavy bag training. With that, RDX won’t be facing high shocks during sparring and thanks to its padding distribution, you will be punching better in sparring sessions.

Obviously this company is inspired from a lot of companies. When I saw the pair, I noticed that its design is similar to one company’s product. After that, I did some serious digging and found out that their design is not the only inspiration. Their padding technology is similar to other company, hand wrist alignment to one another. But does that make the pair bad? Well it certainly gives very quality sparring performance with its genuine cowhide leather. Its nylon lining is rated as best for comfort and even they have lots of “inspiration”, I strongly believe that they certainly put on very hard work and it is ideal for ALL training types. You can expect to use this pair around 3 years. It has also no break in time, so you can start improving your punching technique as soon as you start training with it. When it is the case, you get the best training performance for the money. Have a look at the most recent price on amazon

  1. I also rate exercise equipment and can tell from reading your reviews you really know what your talking about. Excellent job rating gloves under $100. Are you planning on posting some training tips? I am always looking for good workouts.

  2. Looks like you know a lot of stuff about boxing, you are apparently the person to look for when looking for boxing tips.

    It’s great to have a list with the best boxing gloves under $100 that can guarantee me quality despite the low price!

    Thanks for sharing and have a great day! 🙂

    1. Good to see you here again Anis and thank you. I try my best 😉 These pairs have incredible quality price ratio and I am sure these will give you great training performance.

  3. Wow, great list! Thanks for sharing – bookmarked;) Which ones you’ve used and which are your favourite? Or do you prefer some higher-end gloves?

    1. well these are all good and I definitely recommend you to try Twins . It has good price and has higher-end gloves quality at the same time 😉

  4. In the last couple years I have really turned into a gym junkie. I love going to the gym and working out. I’m always looking for new things to add to my routine at the gym. I had researched a bit ago on boxing, but never went any further. Maybe it’s time for me to buy a pair of gloves and start. Is there a pair that would be best for beginners or does level of ability not matter when buying a pair of gloves?

    Thank you 🙂

    1. That is nice Katie,
      I am sure you will love boxing and you can get all around training gloves for all training types. So you can do all including sparring, heavy bag… It will be a good start 😉 in future you can also get a pair for heavy bag. But right now only one training pair will do the job.

  5. Hello =)

    I’m very grateful that you have shared quality boxing gloves which are affordable, especially in times when the money isn’t flowing in.

    Thanks =)

  6. Wow, what a great and useful list. As I am a beginner I do not want to break the bank, so this a well worth choice of options.

    Reading your post about quality I would definitely go with leather ones and probably go for the Twins gloves.

  7. This is great information and a one-stop shop. I remember a few years back I had to buy gloves for kick-boxing sparring and was confused as which gloves were the best to buy. I was concerned with my wrists not hurting or feeling the shock as much especially when I hit the bags. I had no idea there was a difference from sparring gloves and heavy bag gloves. This was very informative.

    1. These gloves don’t have much support for your wrists so I am not surprised. As you said, especially when you hit the bags, you must feel an awkward pair. If you will continue doing bag work, choose a bag pair. Title Gel World Bag can be a good fit for someone like you.

  8. travel and treatz

    Thanks for sharing. Every time I go to the gym, I look at the punching bags and think, “I should get my own gloves, I’d like to include that in my workout”….. and it stops at a thought. So now that u’ve done the research for me, I can pick one!
    Thanks! 🙂

    1. Interestingly enough this is how I started boxing ; ) Punching bag training can be great complimentary for your gym workouts. However, if you do only bag work, choose one which has necessary qualities for it. You can look at exclusive features section and decide accordingly.

  9. Nice article, giving people a lot of options to choose from and reviewing each for there pros and cons will make the purchasing process easier for the buyer. I have had 4 pairs of the gloves on your list and will say I am a huge fan of the hayabusa gloves. Very comfortable, and durable pair of gloves. Also very easy on the wrist and knuckles when hitting the heavy bag.

    1. You used a lot of gloves man. These gloves on this list definitely last more than a year so you have quite a bit of experience. I also really like Hayabusa brand and these gloves on the list have good prices, offer knuckle protection and only con is slightly low cover material quality.
      Exactly, the wrist support is the first reason why I prefer Hayabusa

  10. I had no idea that each pair of boxing gloves have their own level of uniqueness. I like how you comprised a list of the top 10 that can be found for under $100. The content is very easy to read and not just jumbled like I’ve seen on other sites. The only advice I would suggest is to change the styling of the header. Other than that, great job!

  11. You gave a very great review on the best boxing gloves. I am very curious to know if any of the boxing gloves in your review are suitable for kids typically around the ages of 5-7. I have sons who are taking some boxing classes this fall. I would like to find the best quality gloves for them before they start their classes. Your advice is highly appreciated. Thanks!

    1. The kids’ gloves offer more protection and these are more padded. The lining and the padding layer, which is closer to hand, has more padding quantity to make it more protective. You can check out this writing.
