I actually found a store in my area where they sell brand name combat sports equipment. The one's they had available at the store were the IMF's training gloves, Fairtex and Twins gloves.
The Twins training gloves and IMF - tech training gloves were pretty close, the IMF's had more padding on the knuckle area, but the fit and feel were good for both brands. I am leaning towards the IMF's at this point.
The one thing about the Ultimate bag gloves is that it comes in tan color, which gives it the old-school look. Has anyone tried the Ultimate bag gloves?

You want to protect your hands when working the heavy bag. Get a pair of gloves specific for that. The Super bag gloves are great in that regard and don't cost that much. I use the Power bag gloves because I like adding the weights as I only do it for a workout. The Super bag glove is the same glove without the weight system.

16 ounces at least for the heavy bag, sparring, double end bag, mitt work, etc. Makes your body used to the 16s, makes you faster so when you put on 10 or 12 ounces for a fight they feel like nothing!
Also idk if your like me but i've trained and fought in Cleto Reyes & Everlast gloves and i always seem to hurt my hands.... until i bought some Winning gloves, they're the best!!! Never had a problem... EVER. They a bit expensive but def. worth it...... also you may want to think about Grant, i've never tried they're gloves but have heard some great things... and their not too expensive
