I bought some wraps at G.I. Joe's (a sporting goods/outdoors-type store) and they were far too short for most of the methods I found online.
I saw one online reference to this fact, that "real" wraps are longer than mass market ones you may find at a mainstream store (I didn't pull an actual measurement, but it was definitely less than 180")

Would the shorter wraps work for bag work?

Get good wraps, always use the same ones, always wrap them the same way.

Make sure not to wrap them too tight, if you notice circulation being cut, thats bad.

I always preferred mexican style wraps- with the elastic.

I noticed that when you start wrapping them different-or switch over to a different style, that tends to be the time injuries occur.

I agree with Joseph, the Mexican hand wraps are nice with the stretchiness to them. I get mine from Ringside and they are plenty long. I tried the Fairtex ones and they were significantly shorter and the material was thinner.

Real mexican hand wraps are 110 inch long elastic gauze. Most fighters use two rolls per hand.

For anyone who is interested in the fundamentals of boxing, check out www.tonyspain.com
I've known Tony for a few years now and recently bought his DVD, which I would recommend.
Tony will be at the "Triple Threat" Strength & Conditioning on April 22 in Florida.

Wrap hands in rope, dip in sticky tree resin, and then roll them in broken glass.
