In the 2 weeks i've had this bag i have beat the heck out of it and it barely shows any sign of use. My dog has also jumped up and scratched it with his claws and did not leave any marks. My only recommendation would be to buy the wieght that attaches to the bottom or find some way to anchor it because it moves around quite a bit. Overall its a good quality bag!
This is a great beginner training set. I took kickboxing training classes so this was perfect to practice what I'd learned during the week in the comfort of my own home. Love it.
It was a Christmas gift for my son. He really enjoys it. Works out with it everyday. He has also got his girl friend using it. It has helped out with his work outs.
We ordered this last year for our boys for Christmas and it was a hit! Granted it took a week or maybe two before we set it up but they still use it often. This is a pretty heavy bag so we ordered the stand rather than hanging it from a beam in our house. The bag and the stand have held up really well! The gloves that came with the bag though are pretty cheap and thin. Luckily we ordered an extra set which worked a lot better and use the first set as a back up. Either way this was a great purchase! If you use your points wisely and watch for coupons you can get both for a little over $100. I can't really remember how I did that last year but I see a lot of reviews complaining about the cost of the stand. Use your points and coupons to your advantage and you can get this pretty cheap!
I bought this for my son for Christmas. It is a great set, but be prepared to purchase the Bag hanger which is much more than this set. After seeing how heavy the bag was there was no where we could find to hang it, so I had to spend much more ordering the hanger set. It a great punching bag and has held up well for the 8 months we have been using it.
