Best Handwraps

Boxing is a fun, exciting sport and the training can provide an unparalleled workout. The downside of boxing training is that, if you’re not careful, you run the risk of sustaining a painful injury – especially to the smaller, more delicate bones in your hand. Using the right safety equipment while you are sparring or training with the heavy bag or focus mitts can dramatically cut down on the risk of injury. The right boxing safety equipment begins with the hand wrap. A good quality hand wrap, properly worn, can prevent everything from cuts to dislocations and even fractures in or on your hand. Based on things like price, availability, ease of use and effectiveness, we’ve put together this list of the five best hand wraps on the market today.
