Default Best Gloves for Training

I've been using the same pair of Pro Sparring gloves from everlast for the past 4 years. I'm currently looking into getting a new pair, and guys at the gym have fairtec, windy, grant, etc. Any reccommendations?

I've had Windy and no complaints they are awesome.

Fairtex makes good gloves but a little pricey. For the money I prefer Windy.

I'll check them out but explain why they're the best choice.

Genuine Leather, very soft, no stitching inside where it will rub on against your knuckles. If they do tear, FightCo will replace them. They just feel great. I had a pair of Combat Sports and they sucked compared to FightCo.

Oh. FightCo is coming out with boxing gloves but I don't know how long it will be. I'm guessing another month or two based on what they've told me in the past.

FightCo provides the competition gloves for most of the MMA fights in Atlantic City. Everybody loves them.
