    Hi all

    I need to buy a 70+lbs heavy bag that can stand up to bare hand punching and kicking. I am surprised I cannot buy the Everlast white canvas bags anymore. That's the only one that can stand up for using for a year or two. The vinyl ones just break in days. I don't know all the new covers like Nevatear, polycanvas and the other fancy names. I just need suggestions in buying one that can last.

    I know leather bags last for a long time, I have a 100 lbs already, I want one with rough surface to condition my hands.

    Thanks, I really want to find one that people have experience with. I bought a few Tuffware black canvas or nylon canvas, they did not even last a week. Too bad Everlast stop making their white canvas bags. Even that, I have to stuff extra material to make it hard enough so it does not give as much. When it gives, that's when it will rip eventually.

    They actually sell a lot of the unfilled canvas bags on ebay, problem is they are only 33" long.

    That's a big problem, I practice Ashihara Karate (from Kyokushin) and I tend to use walls and trees to toughen my knuckles and shins thats how Sosai Oyama did it anyway.

    Wish you luck in finding the right heavy Bag for you

    As punching bags go, the heavy bag is the hardest hitter. Stuffed with environmentally friendly cloth cuttings and reinforced with gravel-filled pipes
