QUESTION

What is the advantage and drawback of gear with gel inside? Is it better than foam gear or is it commercial? Specifically is gel good for gloves, shin guards, body armor, or headgear?

ANSWER

I use gel handwraps for boxing, and have used gel gloves. My experience with foam is that it compresses and shifts over time in your gloves, whereas gel gloves seem to do this less, and last a bit longer as a result.

This is entirely anecdotal, based on my personal experience.
