Windy Fight Gear:
Founded in 1951, Windy Fight Gear is one of Thailand’s oldest and most respected boxing equipment manufacturers. As old school as it gets. Unlike other Muay Thai brands which are constantly innovating, Windy perfected their kit in the heat of the Thai fight game, decades ago and stuck with it. From the, ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ school of thought. Old, faithful and reliable. For many experienced, professional Nak Muay, Windy boxing gloves are a go to favourite. After 70 years in the hardest game in the world, Windy Fight Gear is still holding it’s own.
Twins was founded in Thailand in 1992, branching off from the Windy brand. The mother and father who own Windy set up Twins Special, for their sons. Simultaneously making boxing equipment and sponsoring big promotions in Thailand. Twins took the domestic fight game by storm. Otherwise paying little attention to the global market. Foreign fighters making their Muay Thai pilgrimage to Thailand quickly became fans of Twins equipment. Those foreign Nak Muay sent Twins Special fight gear back home, inadvertently making Twins a globally recognized brand. Such was Twins popularity, Twins boxing gloves have even become popular as a reliable alternative for Western boxers. Now considered one of the three best Muay Thai equipment manufacturers in the world today.
Twins Special Thailand continues to make changes to their branding and logos. Read more about their latest changes in 2022 here.
Founded in 1971. Fairtex is without a doubt, the most prolific Thai boxing equipment manufacturers in Thailand, if not the world. Originally a textile company, they sold Muay Thai attire and equipment domestically. They opened their own Muay Thai gyms as early as 1975. Fairtex gyms were some of the first gyms in Thailand to welcome foreigners. In Thailand, Nak Muay often take on the gym name as their surname. Monstrous fighters such as Yodsanklai Fairtex and Stamp Fairtex carry the Fairtex name for a reason!
Fairtex sold their equipment domestically until the 90s, then they took the brand to the international market. Subsequently branching out into the wider fight game. Today they are constantly innovating. Making everything from Muay Thai equipment like their flagship BGV1 Fairtex boxing gloves to their BGL7 Mexican style puncher’s gloves. Even branching out into manufacturing MMA gloves. Possibly the most popular Thai fight equipment brand in the world today.
Top King Boxing:
Top King Boxing was founded in 2009, branching off from Twins. One of the brothers created ‘King Muay Thai’ as part the Twins empire to innovate more modern styles of equipment. Eventually splitting from the Twins Special manufacturing house, to become the stand alone Top King brand. Top King has innovated some of the best shin guards in the game and the highly popular TKFME Extreme mitts — a hybrid blend between the Western focus mitt and Thai kick pad. Top King rebranded and changed their logo in 2022. You can read more about their innovative new look here.
Nationman is a well established Thai sporting goods manufacturer. They seek to give back to Thai society by pledging to keep 100% of their production in Thailand. They are proud sponsors of Thai national teams as well as grass roots athletics. Nationman cloth shin guards, Nationman elbow pads and ankle guards are a staple of the global Thai boxing community. No frills kit for the hardened Nak Muay.

Their classic boxing gloves have quickly become a favourite of Nak Muay from Thailand to the West. A family run outfit making their kit in their Bangkok based factory. Boon uses only the best cowhide leather and high impact foam. Their signature ‘Boon Brown Classic Boxing Gloves’ are some of the nicest leather boxing gloves around.

Their small batch operation is highly respected by those in the know, from the Land of Smiles to the West.
