When I ordered a 60 # kettle bell from a different merchant a few months back it arrived in an obliterated, scuffed up ball of cardboard and shrink wrap. This kettle bell is heavier, but arrived in great shape. Whoever packaged this thing deserves employee of the month. These heavy CAP kettle bells seem incredibly sturdy, I've had a 60# for about a year and other than a little scuffing, it has held up great. This thing does have pretty wide handles, so if you have small hands you might have a little trouble holding onto it for one-handed work.
