    i'm sure they'd make a great bag filler for practicing dirty boxing on, though.

    My bag came filled with a mix of shredded cloth and sand, I found oveer time the sand settled in the bottom which I actually had no problem with. If I was kicking low I made damn sure I hit with the shin and I was able to condition my shins on it pretty well, kicking higher with the instep wasn't to bad and punching doesn't break my hands either.

    Cloth all the way. Its the safest bet.
    The cloth will eventually settle into a pretty solid bag.
    When i first joined my gym and hit the bags, i was wondering, sand or sawdust...
    Then one day my coach told me to refill the bags. Wadda ya know? Strips of cloth...

    Old thread revival...

    I'm filling a bag today.
    Was advised to put Sand in a sealed trash bag (I used two heavy Contractor bags) and then fill with Cellulose Insulation (the kind that comes in Bags and you blow it into your attic).

    Will let you know how it comes out.

    Filling your own bag sounds like a recipe for disaster/crap. Just buy a decent 70lb everlast for $60 from sports authority it'll last a few years. I just did some research since i recently tore a whole in my old everlast bag while being a badass on it.

    Crappy bags are filled with shredded cloth and 3 or 4 sandbags maybe 5lbs each. Eventually they settle and you're low kicking hard sand while punching squishy pillowy cloth. The good bags I saw were filled with shredded cloth only and then machine compressed. If you want a decent even consistancy bag that won't settle i'd say get lots of shredded cloth (a few pair of old jeans probly not enough) put a little in pack it down & repeat until its full.

    This is a 6' tall bag.
    The sand is in a bag and laying FLAT on the bottom (30 lbs of it)

    the Cellulose insulation is in 22.4 lb bags at $9.95 each from Home Depot.
    I bought three bags.
    They are already very compacted and I am going to try to fit in as much as I can to get around a 100lb bag.

    I've been HITTING Bags for 30 years...just never stuffed one from Scratch.
    I have RESTUFFED bags (crap everlast) and saw how the put the sand bags in that do shift around and bust your hands.

    I'm experimenting with one of these as I am getting ready to set up a Gym with a bunch of bags.
    Will report back....

    I just put in the first pack....

    The key is to keep the insulation in big chunks.
    It EXPANDS A LOT and then you have to pack it back down which is messy.

    I'm going to try cutting the whole next pack in half so it can go in in two chunks.
