Default Just had my new gloves shipped in and whooaahh

So after about a year of boxing i decided to kick down and buy some gloves to train in. It's the first time I have owned a new pair of some decent boxing gloves. I got the the Everlast Protex 2 training gloves. When I started hitting the heavy bag in them today, I realized they smelled EXTREMELY strong of some kind of chemical. It was almost like a strong whiteout or sharpy smell. Is this normal??? 8 rounds and a cool down later, im sittin here feeling kinda sick with my nose a little tender and a little high off those fumes...

LOL! Sorry, but that's just funny.

I'd seriously email Everlast and the site you bought them from if you didn't buy direct from Everlast.com to see wtf is up.

Yeah I'm probably going to let them try and air out for a few days and see if that helps. Its gets difficult training with the smell of sharpie's directly in both my nostrils. If that doesnt help, I probably will give them a call and see wat's up.

May be something on the gloves to preserve the leather. But it shouldn't have that big of a smell to bother you. I would contact whoever you got them from.
