The Everlast 70-pound heavy bag is a good choice for those just starting out with boxing/MMA. It's a little more expensive than some other options but the quality is solid and it works well enough to get you started. The fillings are also very comfortable, making this an enjoyable workout experience.

You'll notice wear and tear over time, however, if you don't treat this like your best friend and take care of it properly. The gloves included in the kit are nothing special so I would recommend getting another pair before long as well as new wraps that suit your needs better. This is worth considering if you're looking for something affordable to start off with or want a low cost option for your home.

70lb Bag Weight

A 70lb heavy bag is good for beginners who are not sure if they want to commit to a heavier weight bag yet. It allows people to kick and punch a heavier bag without it moving around all over the place.

The 70lb mma kit is great for beginners looking for something that won't break their bank account but will still give them a good idea of what they are getting involved in if you decide to get into freestyle boxing or mixed martial arts sparring. If you are not sure that you want to spend a lot of money on starting out then this is what I would recommend most people buy.

However, if you've been in the game for a while, this is still as solid choice for warm ups and bag practice.

Build Quality

Build quality is decent. It's nothing super special but you can tell that the bag is not going to fall apart on you. If it takes a beating, this will hold up rather well. You'll see some wear and tear over time but only if you really go at it with the kind of intensity that most people don't have when they are just starting out with boxing, you should be good to go.

Filling

The bag comes stuffed with a custom filling of natural and synthetic fibers blended with sifted sand. Basically, it's a heavy bag filled with sand. The filling feels pretty good and works well for giving the bag that springiness that you want from your 70lb MMA heavy bag.

Everlast Brand

The Everlast brand is solid. Everlast warrants its products to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of 120 days from date of purchase, provided they have not been subjected to obvious abuse, neglect or misuse. Everlast's sole liability is limited to repairing or replacing products that are returned within this 120-day period, unless specific product literature specifies otherwise.

Pro Tip

For all bags, especially one at this price point, we recommend reinforcing the straps with Gorilla Tape. This makes sure that the straps don't tear and that you get a really good workout over time.

Also includes heavy bag gloves, 108-Inch hand wraps and bungee cord

The heavy bag gloves are a good pair to get started or for a backup, but nothing to write home about.

Everlast Gloves

The hand wraps do their job and keep everything in place. This bag has a bungee cord for stability which connects to a loop on the bottom.

These extras are decent, and worth the purchase price, but you'll outgrow them if you continue training and improving.

Who Is This Good For?

The Everlast 70-Pound MMA Heavy-Bag Kit is good for beginners who want to get started with a heavy bag but still not break the bank account. It's good for those who are looking for something that won't require much assembly.

It's also great for experienced boxers who need an affordable extra bag to warm up on or practice their work out routines on at home when they have no place else to go.

Alternatives

Pricier alternatives (that are kits) will offer more quality.

Conclusion

If you're looking for a quality product that won't break your bank account, the Everlast 70-Pound MMA Heavy-Bag Kit is worth considering. It offers all of the basic features and equipment needed to get started with boxing or mixed martial arts sparring without breaking the budget. If you want something more high end you'll want to look at costlier options.
