The Onex 9 Piece Boxing Set
is a collection of boxing equipment which consists of a hanging punch bag, boxing gloves and various attachments. The most notable and unusual aspect of this punch bag is that it is waterproof
. Not many punch bags are waterproof meaning this is one of the few which can be used outside.
This Onex punch bag is ideal for all kinds of purposes. It works well as a training aid, for routine exercise and for general training in MMA, kickboxing, boxing, karate, judo, etc. The set is suitable for both adults and children, although the gloves may be too large for children.
Onex, the manufacturer of this punch bag, is a Manchester based Fight Gear shop that operates globally. They have a good reputation for quality and customer satisfaction.
Let us first look at the details of the items included.
1. Onex Punch Bag
. The Onex Punch Bag is coated in G-Core twinned layer non-tear Rex leather. The inside is machine filled which helps make the bag uniform and consistent. The stitching on the bag is strong and consistent.
- Zip-Top Opening
. The punch bag has a zip-top opening. This means that you can increase/decrease the weight by adding/removing material, or change the material altogether if you want to.
. As mentioned in the introduction, the bag is waterproof so it is weather resistant and therefore suitable for outdoor use.
. The punch bag is 5ft tall so it has a reasonably large strike area. Its distance from the floor will depend on where it is hung.
