I use Twins Special Boxing gloves. They have a synthetic leather version. Looks real, feels different.
My MMA-gloves are from Combat Sports. Cant complain about em.
The shin-guards I use are form a local store here. Nothing fancy and after 3 years, the straps start to break. So Im gonna need new ones, too.

Just found this post on another forum. Some of the links may be dead as it's 2 years old.

[QUOTE=veganjiujitsu;27882796]I thought this might be helpful to some folks who avoid leather. this is just stuff I found in my searches based on description and appearance. so can't guarantee they are leather free--you should contact the supplier and/or check the item once you get it.

I think pretty much everything I have is everlast. I've been using them for years and they haven't shown any sign of tearing or breaking.
