Anyways comparing the 2 the XL had a broken in feel to the padding, which was nice but the L's padding felt alot more firm (still hits like pillows btw) coming out of the box. I doubt that has anything to do with the type of padding they use for each size but it's a detail nonetheless. Sparring with these things is like a dream! You feel the impact alright but there's no resounding sting afterwards not like sparring with 10oz bag gloves. I should know :P.
SIzing is my biggest gripe on this. I have average sized hands (8.5in Circumference around the knuckles) and I bought the XL so I could use handwraps underneath. Definitely won't be able to do that comfortably, at least not with 180 wraps and a flat no for the L. Both have the same width across the palm of about 4.4in. The difference in size is determined by the size of the finger loops. Mind you I don't have sausage fingers but the XL's sizing felt more comfortable then the L's which felt snug but nothing too uncomfortable. If anything I'd make the Size chart different with XL's being the L and the L's being Reg and so on and so forth.
Definitely would purchase more of these out of want rather than need (Got the Red and White now I want the Blue >:D). Overall excellent quality glove and I'm glad to have made this purchase.
