This brand has been in existence for quite a while and is considered to be one of the leading brands in terms of punching bags and heavy bags. This particular heavy bag weighs approximately 65 pounds and is incredibly sturdy, containing large-sized leather straps that are sewn to the bag with cross-stitching and metal rivets. Both of these help to support the bag’s hanging chains and D-ring. Additionally, the bag also contains 2″ of IMF Tech injected foam, which provides a soft surface whenever you hit the bag itself. This not only protects your joints from an unnecessary amount of shock, but it also helps give you the feeling of hitting an actual body. The boxing bag itself also comes in two different colors, either black or red. The only faults that can be found with this bag is that the inside may settle at very bottom over a long period of time.

Similar to the 80lb version, you can expect practically the same features with outslayer’s 80 pound bag. This version contains the same construction and quality, with the only differences being the weight, as well as the company’s logo being repeated down the side of the bag itself. Additionally, the heavy bags height is a few inches shorter than the 100lb version. With that being said, unless you specifically need a lighter bag, the 80lb heavy bag is a better overall deal.
