The boxing bag shown here is one of MVP’s best sellers, it measures in at 5 ft long and it’s suspended from the ceiling with a heavy duty stainless steel chain attached to the bag at four points.

The bag itself is made from heavy-duty top grain cowhide with reinforced hand-stitching, the leather will develop its own unique patina with age and use.

For obvious weight reasons, each bag comes unfilled. MVP recommends using a combination of scrap fabric or clothing (sourced cheaply from a secondhand shop) layered with 4 to 5 small sandbags for weight, these materials are easy to source and they’re period correct as it’s what they used back in the day.

MVP also sells a variety of traditional leather boxing gloves, other leather bag types, classic medicine balls, leather gym bags, and even a selection of traditional leather driving gloves. The Retro Heritage Heavy Leather Punching Bag costs $409 USD and the gloves we’ve shown here cost $125.
