Hey Sara, let me tackle each piece of your question separately.

The price disparity you are seeing between the two bags can stem from a variety of reasons. The first is specials. Sometimes we run specials or sales on different equipment that can provide unique opportunities to get very good equipment or packages at a low price. That is part of the heavy bag kit's situation right now. However, it also has to do with the quality of the bag. Both are high quality, but the bag in the heavy bag kit is polycanvas while the bag selected on this page is genuine leather. As you might imagine leather is a pricier material.

The weight of the bag can effect the price, but generally only a little bit. The construction of the bag is more important in that regard. Some boxers enjoy the experience of leather, and it is time tested as a reliable material that can take a beating. That being said, polycanvas is excellent as well.

When shopping for weight, the-heavier-the-better is not always true. You'll want to take into consideration your body weight and experience punching. The more body weight you have the more weight you can sink into each punch, therefore a heavier bag is appropriate to absorb that impact without flailing all about. However if you are a beginning puncher you don't want to injure yourself on an overly hard and heavy bag.

To build a strong punch consider those two things. If you're body weight is 160-200 go with the 80lb bag, if it is less go with the 70. These are just generalizations but should help if you are trying to narrow down options.
