    I have also been looking at the 12oz BGV9's for bag/pads and I currently use Boon 16oz. What size Boon were too small inside for you? I find the 16oz Boon's rather big inside, but they may be smaller if they are 12oz?

    I got a new pair of 12oz boons Wednesday and used them for the first time this week. Prior to using them I had stuffed a pair of socks in them because they were definitely tight.

    They've loosened up a bit and was able to wear them with wraps with no discomfort. Didn't hit them on the bag or pads yet, just partner drills and then some sparring and I'm still a big fan of the brand.

    I can say though that my older pair was definitely wider in the hand compartment than this newer pair. Old pair was 14oz Velcro vs 12oz laceup for the new pair

    I just weighed my 16oz Boon's I bought 6 months ago. They both weigh in exactly at 14.0 oz! I wonder how much the 12 oz actually weigh? :p

    I love the fairtex hands down. I got several pairs for my gym and they just last
