It was a busy round of updates, with half our previous picks losing their spots due to a proliferation of availability issues. The choices we ended up removing were the Fila Exercise, Valeo Power, XtraEdge XE, Sisyama Combat and Empower Women.
With quite a few vacancies on our list, we wasted no time finding several new options to add to our rankings, and ended up focusing on gear that was well suited to martial arts training, recognizing that designs like these had little representation on our list, even though they comprise a large part of the weighted-glove market.
Our new inclusions are the FitsT4 Half Mitts — which are available in black or white and boast breathable terry cloth between their fingers; the Ringside EHW-P — which, at either two or three pounds per hand, are significantly heavier than most selections in this space; and the Meister Elite — a two-pound pair that’s slight enough to slip inside a pair of boxing gloves.
