Most popular brands Morgan, Smai and Hayabusa bag gloves are all well designed to do the job of protecting your hands when hitting the punching bag and other boxing and martial arts targets like the focus pad mitts.
For punching the inflated boxing balls you do not need to use the curved bag gloves with the thick padding. You are best to use the thinner straight bag mittens or the cut finger bag mitts for the platform speed ball, and for the floor to ceiling boxing ball, so you can feel your fist striking the boxing ball and control the ball bouncing off your fists much better that if you were punching with a thick layer of shock absorbing padding.
