Finding a quality freestanding punch bag at reasonable price is no easy task in the current punch bag market. In this review I may have just found one of the best options for a boxing beginner not looking to invest too much money, but also having a good conditioned bad which will help with your training.
In this case of this review I will be taking a closer look at The Dripex Feestanding Punch Bag for you. This bag is innovative and convenient design which perfect for your home gym. Although there are better freestanding bags out there like Century, this is still a very durable punch bag which will become an asset in your fitness routine.
Dripex are in fact a sub brand of company called Robustsport. They created a whole range of workout equipment with the aim to make it easier for everyone to have the best workouts at home.
They have a big range of products including weight benches, exercise bikes along with other sports and recreation products with aim of being affordable prices for those looking set up home gyms.
The Dripex punch bag is one of their most popular products for those looking to practice boxing in their training regime.
This Dripex punch bag is constructed with 4 layers to give a quality and safe experience while training. It’s made with durable and safe materials making ideal for those just starting out!
First layer – has high density PU leather cover, making strong and durable from your punches.
Second layer – is the strength buffer layer which absorbs the shock from your punches or kicks.
Third layer – is made with an elastic pearly cotton which helping to make it more comfortable hitting bag and to help avoid injury.
Fourth Layer – and finally a high-density EPE foam padding which s used to keep the bag resilient and sturdy over a long time.
See these in the graphic below:
Now one of best parts of the Dripex punch bag design is the Ultra Silent 360 shock and noise absorption springs to help reduce the noise of the bag when you punch it! This might be deciding factor for you if you plan on buying the kids’ version of the Dripex bag.
Check out the diagram below to see where the noise of the springs compare with other everyday noises!
The bag itself comes in a classic black leather colour, with the silver Dripex branding printed onto it. Nothing too special, but it doesn’t matter too much what it looks like in my opinion.
However, there is a red version of the bag that has a cool martial artist logo which is also on the kids version of the bag. See below:
The base of this Dripex freestanding punch bag can be anchored with sand or water in the rounded base delivers. Which helps keeps it steady from maximum forces punches and kicks just remember to put enough sand or water in it to keep it in place!
Check it out in action below
The bag comes in the two parts and you will need to attach the main punch bag with the base, which will require some tools to set up, but nothing to uncommon that you won’t be able to get your hands on.
Pros and cons
- Springs help to reduce the noise of the bag when using
- Reasonable price for quality bag
- Easy enough set up
- Great material used to last you a long time
- Enough water and sand are definitely required in the base or it will topple if punched at full force.
- Not the most exciting looking bag to look at
Personally I believe the Dripex Free Standing punch bag is a great option for all levels and is ideal for those that are just starting out in boxing or those just looking for a fitness punch bag to progress your aerobic conditioning, endurance or technique training.
If you are training at higher level of Boxing or MMA, I would highly recommend you consider a more robust bag that will suit your fighter lifestyle, but this will still do the job. (Make sure to check out my other punch bag equipment reviews further below.)
