I always did my speed bag training with wraps and never had a problem, but they are kind of a hassle to deal with in between workouts. I recently saw some speed bag gloves which seem like an ideal solution. Other than the fact that they might be more expensive, is there any downside to using gloves over wraps for speed bag-only workouts?

Speed bag work is non-injurious; wraps provide more wrist support, unnecessary on the speed bag. You might lose a tiny bit of mobility depending on the gloves.
