    HELP - I Need An Outdoors Punch/Kick Bag

    It's high time I got back into bagwork. But I can't put one up inside (not enough space), or on the porch (too much asbestos sheeting).

    What I need is a freestanding bag, that's weather-proof. Do they exist? And if so, do you have any recommendations?

    And no, I'm not talking about a makiwara. I built one two summers ago, and I'll be damned if I'm going to low-kick it, or work out any decent combinations on it.

    And before anyone says 'search function n00b', the Bullshido search won't let me search for 'bag'.

    Alright people. Be useful. And if you can't be useful, be funny.

    Tarp and dead body? Gives that 'realistic' feel.

    maybe a leather or vinyl one that you can cover up when done? Those wave master ones are resilient.

    Free Standing Heavy Bag - most of the posts in that thread relate to indoor bags, but there is mention of the outdoor option in a couple of places.

    The Wave Bag from Century - does what it says on the tin - reviews of the Wave Bag.

    There's a couple of threads - I'm still combing the archives for more.

    I really think the "bag+cover it with a tarp" idea is your best bet. Hell, you could get a traditional heavy bag and hang it off of a tree outdoors. You'd get a good workout by hanging it and taking it off the tree everyday for training.

    Before I moved to my new place I considered getting an 80-pounder. I didn't have a place to put it so I though to hang it from a tree branch whenever I planned to use it. That is, I was planning to carry the ************ in and out as needed.

    Obviously this may not be ideal if you have back problems, but if you can, you'd be doing a bit of sandbag-like training before and after your bag work.

    There is also consideration to the weather. If you live in a humid/putrid always fucking raining place, that's bad. But if you live in a dry area, you can leave the bag outdoors for days. Sunlight will have an effect on the leather or vinyl, but you can always cover the fucker with duct tape.

    Heavy bag question for MT/TKD guys - OP had a problem with kicks splitting bags, so heavier duty bags were discussed (as well as modifications to improve longevity).

    Heavy Bag Drama - OP talking about problems with his new 110cm Everlast bag

    Melbourne: Buying a based heavy bag - this seems right up your street. Almost literally.

    Heavy bag - does what it says on the tin.

    Heavy Bag Alternatives - some alternatives to putting up a heavy bag, including ideas like hanging sandbags.

    wearing in a new heavy bag - some issues when wearing in new heavy bags. You're probably already familiar with this stuff, but just in case anyone else finds it useful.

    Heavy Bag? - seems to be fairly basic stuff, but hey. *shrug*

    Heavy bag - again, someone looking for basic info on heavy bags and what to do with them.

    Temp. heavy bag replacement - again, some ideas for what to use in lieu of a heavy bag.

    Heavy bags - again, basic thread. (You may be noticing a pattern by now.)

    Anyway, that's what I've managed to glean from a fairly quick search. Forum - Old BS; search term - "heavy bag".

    Bloody hot in summer - dry heat, often hovering around 100F for days. Increasingly less wet in winter, sitting around 60F.
