    I have been procrastinating, so I did this quickly. I am sure I left some things off, so feel free to ask me to touch on whatever you might want to know.

    In this review I will be discussing my 16oz lace-up Classic Gloves and Classics Facebar Headgear that I got from Juan (Technoir here on sherdawg): Jtorresz99mx@gmail.com.

    1st off, this bears repeating, Juan is the man and I cannot state how truly great is customer service is. If you want Mexican gear, you need to be going through Juan.

    The Feel: The feel is similar to a Reyes or Zepol glove, except a more compact pocket and fit.

    The Size and Shape: See the pictures, but it

    Very good review! At points it felt like, I need to know what Zepols are like, to understand exactly what you mean though

    lol, yeah. I just know that a lot of the Mexican Boxing Gear Crew really wanted me to touch on the differences between Zepols and Classics

    I assume the cuff is pretty soft so the wrist support is not so great (I believe not really bad, but definitely nothing to write home about).
    Otherwise I would grab the Classics...

    it's nothing to write home about, it's perfectly adequate but not something that goes above and beyond. If somebody has wrist issues, they might want something a little beefier, but it does enough.

    Bryan where does the bar sit for the face saver? Across the nose? Near the mouth?

    Of you don't mind can you take a pic with it on? I would like to see how bulky it is. Face savers won't show how bulky they are until you see someone wear them.

    Doesn't look bulky at all. The steel Bar must be pretty robust.

    Why the sad look bro?
