    Genuinely, I’ve googled and can’t seem to find proper outdoor bags…

    I’ve a pull up bar mounted outside and fancy hooking a heavy bag to it..

    Suggestions for one that can be left out in all weathers please!

    Get a water bag, they’re brilliant. This one in fact.

    I want one of these too. Don’t have room in the house or garage.

    The water bags are great. Much better than traditional padded bags. The ball shape is also much better for uppercuts too. I’d have one in my garden if I could afford.

    Will pop to decathlon for wraps…
    Want to find a fabric type ‘chain’ I can raise and lower… Don’t really want to put both me and the 190lb bag on the bar at the same time!
    Plus it will allow my lad to punch it at a lower height!

    Are those waterbags UV stabilized? Can’t see anything about it in the blurb….

    Standard long cylinder variety are really good for kick, shin, knee work.

    No idea. They are very thick though due to the whole punchy punch thing.

    I’m not too fussed if not that great for kicking.
    TBH, if my illegal street fights escalate, i just ‘hadookan’ them, and finish with a 13 move combo.
    Standard.

    BoJo or Trump swinging by their necks. The smell might get a tad too much after awhile though.

    It won’t matter how thick they are if they go crispy in the sun and leave you with an expensive puddle.

    Under the about this product tab says uv resistant and safe for outdoor use

    You can probably find something useful on Amazon, try searching for “rope”.

    Those waterbags are clearly fenders filled with water.

    Available at all good beaches.

    Think DrP lives in the UK so anything going crispy in the sun isn’t going to be an issue. Are they waterproof would be more apt.

    Pics of your mad fighting skillz in action will be needed DrP.

    They have the 21” and 15” water bags in gym I train at. The 21” is too heavy for me; I am 160lb.
    The 15” bag is much better to work out on. The size is just better imo.

    They are a nice addition to use, but not a bag to really work out on, simply because you don’t throw proper body punches on it.

    And the rubber outside would perish fairly quick too I’d guess … and they very slippery when wet!

    I’d suggest just go to your local amateur boxing gym. Mines open 3 times a week – I pay £3 a week.

    Outdoor bags need a big hanger to ensure bag is hanging well away from wall to give you space to move around plus not rub against wall.

    So i think in my haste I ordered TOO heavyweight a bag!!!

    I’ll send the 190lb one back (as I too only weigh 160lb) and I’ve ordered the 18” one instead… At 120lb it’ll be better for me…
    Plus had a code for 10% off at “made for fighters.co.uk”…

    Bit of a pain having to send the bigger one back, but hey ho!!
