unless you are buying purely for looks i wouldn't go there mate!
My mate who i train with has Throwdown ones from SugarRays @ £40
I paid less than £40 for my Fairtex
I bought these http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Pro-RDX-Focus-Pads-Hook-Jab-Mitts-Boxing-Punch-Gloves-/380230901665?cmd=ViewItem&pt=UK_SportingGoods_Boxing_RL&hash=item5887871fa1 for our club @ £20 ish
All three of these sets are within a razors width of each other, you could use all three with your eyes closed (so to speak) and not tell the difference
I would save the money and buy yaself some nice other training gear with the difference personally

I agree Dave78 ~ dont buy off looks.
I have sold nearly every deisgn and brand in focus mitts over the last 4 years and to be honest I sell more of my basic leather design for £ 26.00 then any other design, I even use them at my own classes and they are the mitts that all the instructors buy from me for their classes.
To be honest they dont look much different then the warrior - just not as fancy ~ as they are designed to be hit and not do a fashion show.
Unless you are teaching and want a great looking set of pads for show then your paying double if not triple the money for not the same in quality.

Warrior focus mitts are made in the same factory as my FIGHTSHOP own brand sauna suits, hand wraps and skipping ropes. I am planning to introduce an own brand FIGHTSHOP entry level budget range of kit at some stage in the future. When I do our FIGHTSHOP focus mitts, marketed at budget lower end, entry level range will be the same as the Warrior ones. That should give you some idea as to the quality. i.e. good for £30 but not for £80
The reason they (Warrior) cost so much is because they are being imported from the country of manufacture to the USA with all the associated shipping costs and import taxes etc and then from the USA to the UK again with import duties and taxes etc. Not to mention all the mark-ups of all the various middle-men along the way.

Wouldnt pay 80 pound for any focus mits, especially ones that are like any other just look pretty.

I've got a similar question:
I'm thinking of buying GnP Thai pads
they are a lot cheaper than the big brands, so I'm guessing the wont be as good as twins, sandee etc
We have twins pads in the gym, but I am looking for an extra set for doing drills outside of gym times, would they be good enough for that?

those warrior focus pads look ace, but i don't see the point in paying over the top prices for something that gets punched when you can buy perfectly good ones for a quarter of the price.
you're paying for the brand.
