Last Updated 2nd July 2020.
This is just a quick guide to budget, mid-range, and high end Boxing / Muay Thai equipment for my classes and PTs.
I’ve provided links to where you can buy the equipment yourself. Alternatively, feel free to ask me about what I have in stock, and you can purchase from me.
Any questions, please feel free to ask.
Budget To Mid Range Boxing Gloves
RDX Noir Boxing Gloves
Most RDX Boxing Gloves are pretty good budget to mid-range gloves.
Currently, there is a pair of RDX Noir gloves which are pretty good at around £30.
Note: I don’t recommend the RDX Noir pads – only the gloves! (see pad section below.)

RDX Boxing Gloves Matte Black Maya Hide Leather NOIR Gloves
Revgear Pinnacle Boxing Gloves
Revgear also do a Pinnacle Boxing Glove at a mid-range price point of £44.99.
These are not leather.
I’m personally not as keen on these as the higher end Revgear gloves.
High End Boxing Gloves
Top Muay Thai Boxing Glove Brands include:
- and many more
Typically, a good pair high end pair of leather gloves will start at around £80+.
Gloves will range in price, style and fit.
I’m a big fan of the higher end Revgear Boxing Gloves as they very high quality along, yet competitively priced.
You can order directly from Revgear, or If I have stock, you can often buy from me at a small discount to the RRP.
The leather Revgear S3s are great gloves, and I personally own a pair of these in blue and yellow.
The S3s are being replaced in August 2020, and I’ll update this page when they come in.
I currently have 1 pair of white/pink set in stock to sell. These are 12oz.
Budget Pads to Mid-Range Pads
Cheap pads offer little protection for your shoulders, so aim to purchase the best pads for your money.
Good pads will really absorb the impact and keep your shoulders healthy and strong. Good pads also last longer.
I also don’t recommend the RDX NOIR pads either as the padding isn’t very nice and feels like concrete – especially for elbows and knees
Revgear do have a fairly good Mid-Range Gel Focused Mitt with an RRP of around £49.99.
The padding is super thick and comfortable, they are chunky yet light. The only downside is they are vinyl – not leather.
However, Revgear equipment is very well built, and tends to last.
High End Pads
High Quality Brands Include:
- and many more
Revgear Curved Focus Mitts
They also have a high quality leather curved focus mitts with RRP £69.99. This is a very light pad with a quality gel padding. I’ve just added a pair of these to my personal collection.
Revgear Heavy Hitters Air Mitts
Revgear also doing an amazing set of Heavy Hitters Air Mitts RRP £79.99.
These are currently one of my main set of personal hand mitts. They offer amazing protection and are very light.
It’s always a good idea to wear wraps under your gloves for wrist support, especially as you start to strike harder.
Meister 180″ Elastic Cotton Hand Wraps for MMA & Boxing (Pair) are great wraps, and cost around £7 a pair.
