Can I Use "Bag Gloves" on the Heavy Bag?

At Machina we currently don't offer what are often known as "bag gloves" - those oven mitts posing as protective gear. We make gear specific for women's needs and, in our view, these gloves usually aren't worth their low price when it comes to protecting your hands. 

The term "Bag gloves" can refer to any kind of boxing glove, but what we're talking about in this posting are the very basic gloves that primarily cover the knuckles and do little else. Typically these gloves offer zero protection for your precious thumbs and no support for your wrists. The padding on this variety of glove is often lower quality and thinner - many times the padding begins to fall apart within a relatively short period of use.
