Give getting in shape a fighting chance with this punching bag and gloves set. Including one pair of 16-ounce adult-size boxing gloves and a large empty bag with chains, this set is perfect for a new or experienced boxer. Fill the bag however you wish....more
Four stars on the value of the bag and gloves; negative one star on the chains that you have to use to hang the bag. Overall, a poor package deal. Not terrible, but not "fair" either.
The bag is difficult to fill with the chains on - which is a problem because you cannot remove them as they are pre-attached, and welded (albeit poorly) closed. Still, I slowly filled the bag but the o-ring that the chains attached to broke while hanging it because of the shoddy welding. I had to forcibly remove the chains and go to the hardware store to buy a solution.
I'd rather the product didn't come with chains than have unsafe, difficult to deal with chains already sealed to the bag.
This was my first order in several years. I was quite impressed with the quality of the product which I purchased at a price much lower than MSRP. It was promptly delivered in perfect condition. My high energy Grandson will get a lot of use from this Heavy Bag work-out item.
Thanks for filling my request and giving ABSOLUTELY NO CAUSE FOR COMPLAINT on any issue.
Merry Christmas to the Big Red "O".

For the price......... this is an exceptional bag. The first thing you should ask yourself is how you are going to fill your bag. I went with patches of old clothes and fabric for mine. I went to my local sewing shop and got FREE :o scrap fabric. I reccomend doing this because you will quickly grow tired of cutting up clothes and rags, and you need A LOT. My friend helped me pack it and it took us about 1 or 2 hours. I also put sand into large ziplock bags, reinforcing them with duct tape, and centered them in the middle of the fabric. This adds weight and stiffness to your bag (be carefull to avoid letting the sand bags touch the sides of the bag because they are extremely hard). The bag appears to be sewn together very well and with care should last a long time. Also we named the bag Steven, it seemed to suit him.
I saw the gloves as a freebie, not expecting much from them, they were actually very good as well, just a bit stiff.
I read a couple of reviews before purchasing this product, one in particular, that was not to happy witrh his purchase. But I have always had pretty good success on here so preceded on after reading the product details very carefully. After recieving this bag/gloves set, it was just what it said it would be and its a nice addition to my personal gym at home. The gloves are great and the bag is durable enough for any begginer to mid range boxing workout . The quality is perfect. I wish the bag was bigger but what else did I expect for what I was paying for it. Threw a couple of old goose down feather comforters in it , and old pillow and the rest with old tshirts and it filled out fine.
When I first opened the box (about twice the size of a shoebox), I was very dissapointed. I hadn't read the fine print to see that you had to fill the bag. But after seeing that all you had to do was fill it with old clothes, rags, etc., we did that. We are now having a blast with it. The bag is slightly thinner than I expected, but for the price, its a great deal. I'd reccommend this product. The boxing gloves are good quality as well.
Punching Bag while it sounds like a great deal, it does not come with any instructions or does it make any suggestions on what to fill the Punching Bag with! As a result, it is not very usefull when you get it as one has no idea of what to add inside to make the bulk and some level of weight. I calculated that if I used sand, the bag would weigh over 300 pounds. try attaching this to your ceiling?
If there is another product or filler one is supposed to use this item does not say.
The gloves seem ok but without the bag....Useless
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality is ok
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes
Really great package deal for my rambunctious tween. Very quick and easy to fill if you have the right stuff. Just opened a few old pillows and threw in the fill. (Thanks to the person who mentioned putting sand bags in the middle. It does work better with the added weight.) Already had a hook in the joist, so no problem hanging it up.
We thought the quality was very good for the price. I checked around for other options. I supposed if you're a serious boxer then you would rather go for the $600 + leather full-sized pre-filled bag. This one worked fine for our purposes: Keeping our son occupied channeling the energy!
How accurate was the sizing? yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. very good
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes
I bought this as a christmas gift. I didn't realize that you had to fill it yourself, but we had an old comforter that worked fine. It's sturdy, and it can really take a punch! He loves it and it's a great workout
I did not realize that the bag wasnt stuffed!!! What an inconveinence!!! I bought this for my husband for christmas. My choices we to go buy stuffing/sand myself and fill it before christmas (in between working 70 hrs/wk and raising 4 kids OR I could give it to him Unstuffed. Tho he is my husband of Many years, I was still embarrassed when he had to open the box and I had to explain to him I hadnt read the fine print and that he was going to have to stuff it himself. Its still sitting on the floor, next to the couch. Im hoping that He is happy with it, as many reviews wrote they were. once its stuffed. I read these reviews AFTER I opened the Small box. At this point Im VERY disappointed. but havent stuffed it, so I had to give it a "Fair" vs a "poor". Shame on me for not reading the fine print. I saw the picture and assumed it was what I saw. I think that in these types of items.... the fact that it is NOT stuffed should be one of the first things mentioned in the description. Big-Red-Letter. Wish us luck.........
How accurate was the sizing? For being Unstuffed, it was fine
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good Material
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Havent stuffed it yet
