Hayabusa – the Peregrine Falcon
Hayabusa is a worldwide known brand making quality fighting equipment. They have been working with many famous athletes from the MMA world( for example GSP on the video below) and they are working with Glory Kickboxing as the official equipment supplier.

Appearance of the gloves
Just from looking at them you can see that they are different from every other pair of boxing gloves. They are made from 5 different pieces of leather – two black leather sections, a colored leather section, a section with a carbon-fiber styled appearance and then a microfiber suede panel which covers the thumb.
You can choose from 4 different colors which look incredibly well.
The outer shell of these gloves is made from the so-called “Vylar” leather. Although it’s not real animal leather, it’s very high quality and actually, Hayabusa themselves claim that this type of Vylar leather performs even better than a real one.
In addition, the thumb is what they call the SweatX thumb which means it’s covered with microfiber suede material which comes in handy when you want to wipe your sweat from your eyes and eyebrows. Very thoughtful, right?
The cuff on these gloves uses a dual strap to secure the hand as tightly as possible.
As well as the main velcro strap, there’s a secondary elastic strap, which pokes through and secures the wrist from the other side. Therefore, having the two straps in different directions means that you can really secure the fist into place, making sure the fit is nice and tight.
When putting the gloves for the first time you really can feel the comfort and support before you even start hitting anything. There is enough room inside the gloves while the hand feels secure in the right place.
At close to 100$ these gloves are made to satisfy the expectations of more advanced athletes or professional fighters. However, with the Hayabusa T3, you are receiving extras that you cannot find in many other boxing gloves – like the dual strap system, the hand splints, the sweat absorbing thumb and the high-quality Vylar engineered leather.
