What Boxing Glove Ounces are right for you?
Boxing glove ounces are one of the many things to consider when buying boxing gloves, but what amount is the right amount? Well, check out this article for the breakdown of all the ounces you can buy, and that way you can check out which one is the right one for you! There are a few things to consider when considering ounces from what you are using them for, how much you weigh, or whether you want to compete with them.
When fighting in competition only certain gloves are able to used legally. Most of them are 12 ounces, but in amateur competition it depends on your size which can make the gloves range from any size. When you are competing either the place you compete and your trainer should know what size of gloves you need.
What You Weigh
Usually the weight will factor into what you need as well even outside of competition. The glove size is determined on what your weight is 12 and 14 ounces are good for 120 pounds and below, from 120 to 150 14 to 16 ounces would work, 150 to 180 pounds you can use 16 to 20 ounces, and if you weigh more than 180 you should be using nothing less than an 18 ounce glove. That is just a rough scale of what should be used for people in sizes. Of course, it still depends on what you are using them for.
If you are using gloves for practice you want the best fitting with the most protection. So, gloves in the 16 and 18 ounces are generally the best, but those can be too big for smaller people. So, you can use a smaller glove for practice, but that is if you are not sparring. When sparring it is almost certain that you should use an 18 or 20 ounce glove. This is for protection of your hand and your partner. That is just the sensible and safe thing to do. Sometimes it does not depend on comfort, because safety comes first.

Introducing Hayabusa’s Metaru Rashguard!
Hayabusa has always made used a lot of knowledge and technology into making their products from gloves to fight shorts. Now, they have taken all of their abilities and put them into their new Hayabusa’s Metaru Rashguard. With three different unique styles, plenty of innovation, and the quality that all Hayabusa product carries do not be surprised to see these in gyms very soon.
Style and Comfort
The Hayabusa’s Metaru Rashguard carries three unique styles. They look like a reptiles skin with thrash marks throughout the design filled with color. You can have white/black, blue/black, or a grey/black. The Hayabusa’s Metaru Rashguard also holds a flatlock stitch that will prevent chaffing for the wearer and is made from the Hayabusa AG compression fabric that makes the rashguard super flexible.
Function and Features
The Hayabusa’s Metaru Rashguard has the new X-Static XT2 pure silver infused into the fabric. This new technology from Hayabusa provides an all natural anti-microbial aspect to the rashguard which will prevent the growth of bacteria and allow for odor protection. This cutting edge fabric also has thermoregulation within it so if it is hot where you train or if it is cold the rashguard will help to regulate your own temperature.
The Hayabusa’s Metaru Rashguard is just as durable as any of the other Hayabusa products on the market. The flatlock stitching helps to allow fraying where the fabric is put together. Also, the graphics on the rashguard are fused onto the fabric so you will not have to worry about them fading or falling off with multiple washes. Plus, when a rashguard is meant to protect against cuts, scrapes and rashes it has to be durable all on its own.
The Bottom Line:
The Hayabusa’s Metaru Rashguard is one of the most durable, cleanest, and comfortable rashguards on the market. While it holds a higher than average price point of nearly $70 you cannot beat the style that comes with it. You could go out and pick up another rashguard for less, but you could have graphics that fall off, something that does not defend against bacteria, or even protect you from rashes. That is why you should pick up the Hayabusa’s Metaru Rashguard.
