Hey all, I'm thinking about making my own bag for boxing. I have some spare canvas I wouldn't mind using for the outside of it, and maybe filling it with sawdust.

What do you guys think? :)

When I was a kid we would use Navy(WWII type) duffle bags and fill with sand bags surrounded by rags they worked great....

Better is ,and especially when you are a starter
to fill it with rags and/or old clothes.
They will drop down by themselves and than you just have to put some more
textile on top .

i have a slender but tall one and because they ussually bend where you kick them a lot i was adviced to put a rainpipe in the middle and fill it round the pipe with filling (clothes orso) And the guy was right.. it doesnt bend anymore...
