It seems like MMA clothing and gear companies are a dime a dozen these days. Companies come and go, and fighters are left to try and find a type of quality gear they like, hoping that the company wont go out of business before they need a new pair of gloves. Fighters looking to fill that gap need look no further than Reevo.
Reevos R9 line was a 2010 Silver Winner at the Design Exchange Awards. Designed by industrial engineer Miles Keller, the R9 line features Energy Dispersion Technology which has absorbing layers of varying density that provide added protection from strikes.
Thanks to Reevo, I had the opportunity to take a look at the entire R9 line. In this review, well be taking a look at the Reevo R9 Warhammer boxing gloves. The gear was tested out by some of my fighters from The Matthew Wellington Group.

The Warhammers are available in both 10 and 16 oz sizes. Here is what MWG client Matt Metts had to say:
The Warhammers have a very light but soft foam padding and a solid strap for wrist support. The padding is not puffy like in other gloves, its tight and firm but yet wont hurt your sparring partners.
