Revgear was established in Los Angeles, California and just after a couple of months it was established, it started delivering products to all over the world. The company produces various different fight gears however it specializes in boxing gloves and when you have a look at the company’s boxing gloves, you can see that there are many styles of boxing gloves including Mexican, Muay Thai, bag gloves… Many successful coaches suggest their stuff to people and one of these names is Rafael Cordiero from Kings MMA. By the way, you know Kings MMA, right? It is one of the most famous MMA centers in the world which has boxing, MMA, and various other martial arts classes.
Anyway, without further ado let’s start Revgear Boxing Gloves review with quite good quality training gloves.

Especially front and upper compartments are quite bulky and even when you look at the picture you can see that it has a lot of padding. Alright, let’s talk about padding. The gloves below also have the same padding type so I will not mention about this below. The padding density is a bit above average. It is nothing like Fairtex Boxing Gloves padding which is super dense or Boon’s padding which has normal density. It is somewhere in between. The padding’s shock absorbance and heavy bag performance are above average. You can hear a satisfying “pop” when you punch a punching bag with these gloves which have decent padding.
Training performance: B+
Revgear 10500 Pro Leather is suitable for all training types since it has all the qualities for training and safety. For example, it has attached thumb for sparring. So you won’t hurt the face (eye) of your sparring partner and it is also reinforced so you don’t have any thumb injury. The attached thumb also helps you make a proper fist. And if you are a beginner or just prefer this, this quality will surely come in handy.
Speaking of the attached thumb, your thumb will not be in a weird position which is a quite common problem for many boxing gloves and this can lead to various injuries so it is a plus that you will not have any of these with this glove.
The palm compartment is made of vinyl and it does not need to be made of quality leather since this part barely gets any deformation. In my opinion, this is a good way to save some money. The other parts’ construction is different, made of decent leather as it is supposed to be.
However, the construction is not suitable for longevity. According to my research, the duration is around 2 years and when you see the price you will understand that you get the best bang for your buck.
There are reviews of other Revgear Boxing Gloves, which are popular, below yet these have lower quality (training and materials) than Revgear Pro Leather and also more expensive price tags so before you read I just wanted you to save some time.
Revgear Elite Leather Boxing Gloves Review
Training Quality: 8.1 / 10.0
Durability: 7.9 / 10.0
Comfort: 8.0 / 10.0
Cost Efficiency: 8.5 / 10.0
Revgear Elite’s some of the qualities are the same. This one also has an attached thumb to provide safety during sparring. And Revgear Elite also has all the necessary qualities for being a training pair. The leather is “rougher” than Pro Leather.
Alright, there are reasons why you should choose Revgear Pro, which is the pair above, instead of Revgear Elite. First of all, this one has a tough cover material and actually there is not any need for it. Since there are many people who buy these gloves for sparring since both gloves have attached thumb. So the tougher leather can actually hurt your opponent and it lasts actually shorter. So what is the point? The second thing is that Revgear Elite is heavier so your punching performance will be lower and you don’t get better protection. All overall Revgear Elite gets C+. However, if you are thinking of getting Pro Leather, which is just superior to this one, just scroll up and you will see the link there.
There are other Revgear Boxing Gloves like Revgear Sentinel Gel Pro Boxing Gloves and Deluxe, however, these are just the lower quality versions of the boxing gloves above. For example one of the models has just different looks and one has different padding type which is injected. This padding type works quite well for sparring gloves since they can control the density and position of the padding quite well. However, please note that this pair is training type and this quality does not bring any advantage for other training types. Even it is a disadvantage in most cases. So there is no point to get Revgear Gloves other than Pro Leather.
If you don’t have a lot of money to spend on gloves like Winning, I would say that you should consider Revgear. Revgear Gloves have generally all around better quality than the gloves which are in the same price range. Especially the leather is quite sturdy.
Many boxing gloves just don’t leave any space after your wrap your hands with hand wraps. Sure it is supposed to be but some of you may prefer wrapping your hands two times. Revgear provides a bit more space than other gloves and it provides an all overall good fit. Wrist compartment is quite thick and it adds extra wrist support. It is also longer than usual. Basically, there is not any negative side of the wrist support. However, there are not enough air channels in gloves so these do not provide premium air flow or heat exchange. So if you want your hands to stay cool, you may want to consider other brands like Fairtex BGV1.
Revgear has also boxing gloves for women, kids, fitness as well but honestly, I did not find enough information to write a review about them.
Guys as you may know I am quite experienced when it comes to boxing gloves and in my opinion, other than Revgear 10500 Pro Leather Training Gloves, there is not any other pair to talk about and I included all the details about the popular pairs in this Revgear Boxing Gloves Review. However, I know very well that there are many other pairs of the company so if you need information about any other pair leave a comment below (please be specific) and after a quick research about the model, I will reply to your question.
