“An Excellent Choice”
This Nevatear bag is the most popular Everlast bag and is an excellent all-around first punching bag, and a good value.

We recommend this punching bag.
  • Made from durable Nevatear
  • Comfortable and durable
  • Great for beginners and advanced users
  • Premium synthetic leather construction
  • Heavy duty nylon straps provide security and safety
  • Loop at bottom so you can tie down if you want to

This is the punching bag of choice for a great many of the gyms around the country. The Nevatear Training Bag approaches the durability and comfort of leather bags, without the major negative of leather bags - the high cost. This bag is tough and comfortable to use. It has been filled with Everlast's patented fill that provides superior energy dispersion and absorb the vibrations from strikes, reducing wear and tear not only on the bag but also on the striker.

Hi sticknmove. This bag would work fine for you, as well as the platinum version: bx-hv-40. In terms of your ceiling height, you may need to go down to the local hardware store and grab more chain. Other than that, it shouldn't be a problem.

Heavy Bags

I am looking for a great Father's Day present for my husband. I am completely lost on this subject. I know my husband has had some training with the heavy bag, he is 5'10 and weighs 205. He will also need gloves. I will be putting this in his garage. What options are best for him?? Thank you so much!

Don't worry Zea, we'll get you the right gear. For your husband's size and weight you could go with either an 80lb bag or a 100lb bag. 80lb bags provide a little more swing and therefore more opportunity for footwork training, 100lb bags provide more resistance. If you'd like to one-stop-shop, this set would do the trick: bx-hv-1501. Otherwise, the bag on this current page would work well, as would this one: bx-hv-40 (Select 80lbs).

As for gloves, I would recommend an inexpensive pair of handwraps here: bx-ac-14, and then gloves like these (probably in medium unless he has big hands): bx-gl-2278.

If you are hanging the bag in the garage, be aware that bags come with a chain and hook but not a mount. Figure out what kind of material you are going to hang it from (metal beam, wooden post, etc) and then select the right mount here: http://www.boxingdepot.com/punchingbag-wall-mounts.html.

Your ideal bag would probably be 80 lbs, but 100 lb will work fine if you get a good pair of gloves with plenty of padding. Also, our heavybag stands can handle 80 or 100 lb bags so no worries there.

Gift

My girlfriend wants a punching bag and I'd like to get her one for Christmas, but I am clueless. She wants it for both stress relief and exercise. She is athletic and in great shape, but has never boxed before. Should I get her a standing bag? Or a hanging bag? What size?

Hi Tan. Sounds like a good gift idea. Here are some things to consider:

Hanging bags and standing bags both have pros and cons. Hanging bags require a specific location to attach it to your ceiling or the purchase of a hanging unit like these here: http://www.boxingdepot.com/punchingbag-wall-mounts.html. Hanging bags come with a wider range of weight options, of which the 60-80lb range would be appropriate for your girlfriend's needs. The hanging bag is more solid than a standing bag which means you can develop more striking power into it as well as develop footwork as it swings.

On the other hand, standing bags are extremely mobile and convenient, allowing you to train anywhere. The striking surface itself tends to be a little softer on the hands, making it easier on the knuckles and joints. It doesn't swing like a hanger, so footwork training is a little trickier. Standing bags don't really come in different sizes and weights so you don't have to worry about that.

Hope this helps!

hi. i want to purchase a punching bag for my husband. he is 32, 6ft, 170lbs. he is athletic and exercises very regularly. these days he runs and lifts mostly but he has boxed (as exercise) in the past. he has wanted a bag to hang in our basement for a while to use for cardio/strength training.

Due to his experience, body size, and level of fitness I think you could go with the 100lb unit. You'll still want to grab a decent pair of gloves, but I suspect that weight will be a good choice. Also, if you don't have a mount for your ceiling you can grab one here - http://www.boxingdepot.com/punchingbag-wall-mounts.html.

Anything in the 12-16 ounce range would be fine. Less weight means less padding, so the gloves will be less bulky but also less protective.

80lb or 100lb

Hi,

My husband will be 49 and is about 5' 8" and weighs approx 180 - 185lbs. He works out about 2x times a week. He wants a bag for the home since he is new to this, should I get a 80lb or 100lb bag?

Thanks.

Hi lag. I think you should go with an 80lb option. With a good pair of gloves, an 80lb bag will be easier on the joints and hands. Since he is going for fitness instead of training for a fight he should consider longevity a top priority.

Well right now an 80lb bag is probably better since you don't have previous experience. However, you are already pretty big and likely to gain both size and muscle mass. I'm going to recommend the 100lb bag, just get good gloves so you don't damage your wrist and hands at first!

Hi I'm 18 years old and I just bought the Nevatear Heavy bag (100 lbs) and am excited to get started with home training. I have been practicing boxing interspersed with Muay Thai for the last couple years.
My question being: I have a large and sturdy tree in my backyard, with fairly horizontal limbs. I am very eager to try to hang the bag from one of the limbs with my Title universal bag hanger. However, I am certain the height of the limb will hold the bag too high in the air with the stock length of the bag chain. Where can I get an extension bag chain, so that the bag is lowered to the perfect height? The extension would only need to be about five or six feet.

Thanks

Unfortunately we don't have anything like an extension bag chain. I think you'll have to rely on a local hardware store to get a length of chain and carabiner style hook.

Bag/Holder

I'm thinking of buying this for my son, my question due to limited space can you hang this up in the garage? if so how do the holders work. Does it hang from the ceiling?

Hi Kelly. Quick question - how old/big is your son? 100lb bags can be pretty hefty, so if he isn't used to it he might be better served with an 80lb bag.

In regards to hanging it - the bag comes with chains that allow it to hang from the ceiling. However, you'll need a 'mount' to actually hang it to. If your garage has wooden beams you'll want a mount like this: bx-ac-24. Otherwise you'll want to browse the other options here: http://www.boxingdepot.com/punchingbag-wall-mounts.html.

Bag to Get

I'm 5'6, 180 lbs, 23 yrs old looking to lose weight and build muscle tone. I don't work our regularly but taking kickboxing classes or getting a punching bag to do it at home has always been an idea of mine. I've had 2 kids and looking to get back into shape. I need help finding the right bag as a beginner and what I need to go along with the bag.
I'm also looking at this to be a method for my husband too! He's 6'1, 300 lbs, 24 yrs old. He is also trying to lose weight and build muscle.
Looking for help and what we need to go along with the punching bag as beginners.

Hi Sam. First, I would recommend this bag to you: bx-hv-721. It's heavy enough for your husband, but the added layer of foam protection will keep both of your joints safe.

You'll also need something to hang it to your ceiling. Browse here: http://www.boxingdepot.com/punchingbag-wall-mounts.html.

I would also recommend getting some decent gloves, size medium for you and large for your husband: bx-gl-2273.

I'm 36yo, 5'9, 175 lbs. I work out regularly, am an ex-grappler, & have pretty good muscle mass. Never used a heavy bag before and am looking to supplement my workouts with it. Trying to decide between 80 or 100 lbs. Leaning towards 100lbs because I just want to work on strength (not footwork) and don't want the sway of a lighter bag. On the other hand, don't want to hurt myself with a bag that's too heavy. Any suggestions?

Husband and Wife bag

Hi! I am a female 5'1" 125lbs and my husband is 6'0" 250lbs. He works in law enforecement so he needs to be able to train for his job, and I just like kick boxing and punching. We have the availability to do a standing or a hanging bag, either one we can do. Would you recommend the 100lb bag?   
by: FF

Between a standing bag and hanging bag I would recommend the hanging bag for you. The reason why is because your husband can take the chains off and practice throws and grappling transitions with it.

As for the bag weight, 100lbs would be suitable for your husband but you personally might find it a bit like hitting a wall. You'd be better suited with a 70lb bag. Ultimately the choice is yours to go with the 100 or perhaps compromise with an 80lb!

Hi Heather. You'd be best set with a 60 or 70lb bag. 60 would give you more swing, while 70 would give more resistance. Those would both require hanging from a ceiling.

For freestanding bags you don't have to worry about weight so much. Something like this will work great: bx-hv-2026.

Should I go with the 100lb bx-hv-162 or the 80lb bx-hv-707?

Also why isn't bx-hv-41 sold anymore? Was the shipping and handling too high?

Hi Jesse. It sounds to me like you could hand either the 80 or 100, so I think you're main consideration will be mobility. The 80lb bag will give you good swing, so you'll get to work on footwork as well when training. The 100lb bag will be more solid for pure kicking power development. Your call!

as for bx-hv-41 - I believe we will be getting more of those in stock in the next month or two.

When it comes to linking, the trick is to surround your sku with this markup: [ sku ] xyz-xyz-21 [ /sku ], just without any spaces.

I think the 80lb bag would be the minimum weight for you, and perhaps the best option if you don't have a lot of experience with bag work yet. A 100lb bag would be a viable option, although it would be a bit tougher on the hands and joints.

Due to your experience you would probably be ok either way, but the 60lb bag will give you a little more bag swing. I tend to think that's better for workouts because it involves more footwork and concentration vs striking power in order to stay with the bag.

I'd recommend the 60 :-)

Hi Leelee. The bag on this page would be a fine choice - I would recommend the 60lb bag weight. I'd also recommend getting a bag mount for when you go to hang it: bx-ac-36.

Another option for you would be to get a freestanding bag. You can put them wherever you want and don't require hanging or a solid ceiling beam: bx-hv-161.

Big and Tall Looking to get in shape

I am 29 years old and looking to revive my love for heavy bags. I am 6'5" 285 lbs. I am starting a diet and exercise regimen, and would like to use a heavy bag for my workouts. I have used bags as a kid and into my early teens when I was involved with Tae Kwon Do. What bag size do you recommend?

I think if you want a lot of bag swing you could go with an 80lb bag, however for your size and weight you could also utilize a 100lb bag for resistance.

Hey gypsy. I'd recommend going with a bag like the one this bag. Foam filled, durable vinyl exterior, not too pricey. As for the weight, I think 70lbs would be perfect for his age and experience level.

If you're expecting another growth spurt and more muscle mass, bump it up to 80 (but I wouldn't go higher than that).

This bag is awful. I purchased the 100 lb version. Had it only 3 months and the bottom fell out. Right in the middle of a workout the bottom of the bag busted out of the seems and the stuffing starting falling out. Also, "nevetear"? Thats a joke. At the top of the bag where the chains are connected to the bag, the material was tearing away. Eventually the bag would have probably fallen down, leaving the chains hanging from my basement beam. I would not recommend this bag to anyone. Waste of money.

Hi Hunter. Right now you would probably be best suited with a 50lb bag, but as get older you'll want more resistance. Perhaps something like a 70lb bag would be good. Consider these options: bx-hv-707, bx-hv-380, bx-hv-656.

hello
i'm a beginner and looking to get some heavy bag to mostly let stress out.
I'm 5'7" and about 175 lbs. - I do not have much space except for an outdoor patio (roofed).

which bag would you recommend? i would be needing a stand as well since i've heard that the floor bag stands tend to break. heard as well that some are easy on the hands.

thank you

Hey Frank. Getting a heavy bag is a great way to relieve stress. For your height and weight I would recommend a 70 or 80lb bag. Any more than that and you might end up injuring your joints. This one here is really nice: bx-hv-209.

As for a stand, this one is affordable and high quality: bx-ac-853. If you think your roof can handle the impact and jostling you could drill a mount right into it, like this one: bx-ac-24.

I'd also highly recommend you grab some gloves (your hands and wrists will thank you). Here is a nice inexpensive pair: bx-gl-40, and here is a cool high quality pair: bx-gl-228.

Hey wako. If I were you I would go with 70/80 lbs. You'll get plenty of resistance, but also a little bit of swing so as to add interest and timing to your training.

Perhaps a few years down the road if you really develop killer striking power you can go up to 100.

Bag Weight

I'm 5 10 and around 165 I have been using the heavy bag at the local gym but it ripped from over use and I am looking to get one for my home. I am not sure what weight to get would a 80 lb bag be good or should I go heavier?

Considering your body weight and the fact that you have some experience, I would suggest you go with 80lbs. That sounds right on the money to me.

Bag for my husband

My husband and I are trying to find a heavy bag for him. He's 6' 3", 150 lbs. What size bag should he get? Should we get a bag that is already filled, or fill it ourselves?

Also, I am concerned about hanging it from a beam in our basement. Is that putting too much strain on the beam? What kind of mounting bracket would be best?

Thank you!  
by: KLN

Hey KLN. I recommend a 70lb bag. It'll be adequately heavy for your husband and manageable for you as well. Getting the bag filled is much less work, and since we offer $2.95 shipping you'll probably end up paying less money anyway (vs the cost of sand, shredded textile, and time spent).

You'll want to assess of the beam in your basement is attached do a solid part of your house (load bearing type beams). Furthermore, you'll want to make sure it isn't roting as it would then be unable to hold the screws of a mount or tolerate the impact.

For a wood beam, this type of mounting bracket is best - bx-ac-36.

"overseas"?

I live on an Air Force Base in Japan - I know that technically we count as shipping to the US as far as regular mail is concerned; I have a 5-digit zip, etc., but I haven't tried to order anything large or heavy. I've been shopping for a heavy bag and a stand to put in my apartment. Will you ship to me, or am I stuck looking locally?

Unfortunately there are restrictions when it comes to heavy items like this. I recommend one of two otpions:

1. Grab an unfilled heavy bag case - bx-hv-540. Once you have this you can just secure some shredded textile found locally and stuff it.

2. Check around some local shops. Fighting arts are quite popular in Japan so you shouldn't have too much trouble.

Which bag?

I am looking to get a heavy bag for my house. I'm 130 pounds and 5'6". I teach BodyCombat and am looking for some actual contact at home. However, my better half is 6'0" and 230 and he wants to use the bag too. Is there a way to get one bag that we can both use? We also have four boys ranging in age from 2 to 12, so the older ones may want to hit on the back sometimes. Thanks for your help!!

Hi Mandi. I think the perfect bag for your needs is this one: tr-bg-07. For your husband, the base and bag are heavy enough to give him real resistance to his training. For you, the bag will be flexible and foam filled so as not to be overwhelming.

For the kids, the striking surface extends near to the floor, and provides a non-damaging striking surface (Softer on the hands than most hanging bags).

Size?

Hi there Im 16 and weigh 180 lbs. I workout everyday and I can bench roughly 300 lbs. I tried my friend's 70 lb bag and it was swinging alot so I thinking I should probably get the 100 lb bag. I don't know if that would be too heavy though, should i get that or the 80 lb bag?

100 is going to be a noticeable step up in resistance, but if 70 wasn't cutting it then 80 might not cut it either. Go 100 but be safe and use hand protection!

Type and Weight of Bag

So I've been reading all the reviews and am trying to figure out what type of bag and weight to buy. I am buying for my husband who is very physically fit. However, I want my daughter and myself to be able to use it too for kickboxing and strength training. Want one that isn't too hard when striking, but that is durable as well. Is this a good one and what weight would you recommend? Am looking at this one in the 100lb but didn't know if I should go with one more around 80lb? Thanks!

Hi Teresa. The 80lb would definitely be more forgiving when struck, and wouldn't lack anything in durability.

Hi Kyle. Shipping to Seattle will be no problem, you can order without worry.

As for the bag weight, that depends on your body weight and experience. Since you're 15 I would recommend going a bit lighter with the 80, however if you are a particularly big 15 year old (6 foot, 160 pounds) then go with the 100.

I noticed that some bags have chains on top, others material straps. What difference does this make? Are there positives, negatives to the different tops?

Hi denise. s far as I have been able to tell there is minimal difference in performance. The cloth tends to make a little less noise (as the chain is prone to rattling).

I also haven't noticed any difference in longevity, except that the chain is a bit easier to replace.

Bag hardening at the bottom?

Most bags that you buy in your local sports store are filled with multiple small bags of sand. Eventually the sand sinks to the bottom of the bag, causing the bottom half of the bag to get REALLY hard.

Does this bag settle and harden at the bottom?

Thanks.

Although generally this bag gets top-notch reviews, some users have said the filling does sink a bit after awhile. This doesn't make the bag unusable by any stretch, but since you are trying to avoid any sinking be aware that this bag is not immune.
