Everlast MMA Polycanvas Heavy Bag
Bottom Line: This is a good quality entry level punching bag that is well-made, durable, and should last a long time.
The Everlast MMA Polycanvas bag stands out with it’s bright red color that is a welcome change from the traditional black covers most heavy bags have (don’t worry there is also a black cover if you don’t like the red version). The bags weighs 70 pounds, which is pretty typical for an entry level punching bag. The bag should be heavy enough for people with average power, but if you have significant power you may want to consider a heavier bag as this one might move too much when hit with either powerful punches and/or kicks.
The bag comes filled with Everlast’s custom filler material of both synthetic and natural fibers. The filler material is designed to provide just the right level of shock absorbency, without being too hard or too soft. We found the bag’s filler to be tough, but still forgiving when hitting it. As the bag’s name suggests, the red cover material is made from polycanvas. We’ve found that Everlast does an excellent job designing their covers and you should be able to give it a serious beating without worrying about the polycanvas cover ripping.
The bag has very sturdy nylon straps that attach to a chain that you use to hang the bag. The chain itself is adjustable, which makes it easier to set up the bag at specific heights. This is good for training as you can practice targeting the bag with punches, kicks, knees, elbows and other strikes at different height levels.
Overall we think this Everlast punching bag is a very good quality bag at a great price point (under $80). If you are getting into martial arts and need a good bag to start training with then we recommend you check it out. The red color also provides extra value in our opinion as it stands out compared to more traditional looking bags. You can read some user reviews by clicking the link below.
