Gear

Looking to get new gear for Muay Thai training? In this section, you will find honest reviews of Muay Thai gear & equipment from the various fight brands in the market along with guides on gear maintenance.

Here are my most popular gear guides:

I have personally gone through stacks of Muay Thai gear over the years, too many pairs of Muay Thai shorts (and still adding more to my collection), with countless hours of training in them.

There are some great gear options available as well as low-quality ones thrown into the mix. Some with poor protection and uncomfortable fit. I make the mistakes so you don’t have to.

Every single Muay Thai brand, you name it, I’ve tried it. There’s a good reason why some brands are more popular than others – they are simply better.

Many top brands have years of experience or invested in heavy research and development to come up with the top-level gear. You get what you pay for.

I have found Thai brands to deliver high-quality products at very competitive prices. Many brands are also constantly putting out modern, stylish designs.

Look around and if you need any more help, feel free to contact me via the “Contact” page.
