Muay Thai Heavy Bags
Made in USA, in Stock and Ready to Ship!

With the wide selection of Muay Thai heavy bags on the internet, you'll first need to see the light through the forest before selecting your bag. Whether you're purchasing Muay Thai bags for outfitting a fight school, a law enforcement agency, fitness center, college athletic program or that very special home gym, the following is an extremely informative and worthwhile read. We've been in business since 2000 and have many Muay Thai bags and heavy bags in the field. Our bags are hanging throughout the USA, including Hawaii and also Canada and as distant as Guam, Okinawa and Afghanistan, from the backyard shed all the way up to military installations. Do your homework before deciding on a Muay Thai bag. We encourage you to search and post on MMA/Combatives message boards to connect with others that have first hand experience with our bags. They're out there. If you have any questions, be sure to contact us info@kofightgear.com. Purchasing a Muay Thai heavy bag is an investment and you want to get it right the first time. You want a Thai bag that performs at the elite level that will bring your game up, not hold you back. A major segment of our business is customers ranging in age from 30 to mid 60s that have trained all their lives. They've trained on Thai bags from many different sources and the common feedback is that the KO Fightgear Muay Thai bag is the best bag they've ever trained on. One customer really hit the nail on the head by saying, "The last Thai bag I bought (KO Fightgear) should've been my first."

From the outside, all Muay Thai bags whether purchased from industry giants to the low cost discounters look the same. The first few times you train on them they may even feel the same. However, if you're not spending your money wisely, you'll wind up with a bag that will split, sag, sting and settle where the bottom of the bag feels like a brick and worst of all, does not perform to your high expectations.

All of our bags are Made in USA. A small, local shop here in New Jersey manufactures the KO Fightgear Muay Thai and heavy bags. They've been in business over 25 years and based on this length of experience developed all the techniques for producing a long lasting, top notch product. The owner is the fellow that you see in the image sitting at the sewing machine. He sews every bag and knows exactly how to sew a bag so that every seam is heavily reinforced, especially at the high impact stress points. He also knows how to fill a bag to get that special "feel". Plus, every bag is personally quality inspected by an expert before it becomes a KO Fightgear Muay Thai bag, tear drop bag, heavy bag or upper cut bag.

Next, we'll briefly list several points that distinguish the KO Fightgear Muay Thai bags from every other bag that's sold in the United States.

  • Thai Bag Shell - The cylinder wall of our bag is a single length of material with only one reinforced vertical seam. This does result in a higher component cost to us, but more importantly provides you a much stronger bag. You'll find Thai bags from other companies offering multi-colors that are only accomplished by using four vertical panels requiring four vertical seams that don't have the integrity of a single length of material. We use a specific heavy gauge non stretch vinyl with an embedded reinforced grid for extra strength. This is an industrial grade vinyl that performs true and tested for this application, both in function and durability. The material is described as feeling supple and flexible while easy to maintain. You can pound on the vertical seam all day long, and the "feel" is the same as any other surface point on the bag. There is no sting. The material offers tremendous cost cut savings compared to leather which brings down the cost of the bag to you. Just as with leather, vinyl covers a broad range of materials so you have the good and bad ones out there and we only use the best. The issue with leather bags is that leather is a natural material that sags and you sure don't want a bag that sags. Plus, leather currently used on bags is the lowest grade possible, really just a marketing buzz word. The "real deal" leather bag, that smells and feels like upholstery leather with the flexibility and is supported so it won't sag would be cost prohibitive and actually unnecessary.

  • Filling Process - We only sell factory filled Thai bags and heavy bags to make sure that our customers train on the top performing bag in the USA along with obtaining full value for their money. Some of you do know how to fill a Thai bag, but for the DIY enthusiast though meaning well, will at best wind up with a mediocre bag which surely isn't for you, and not for us. All that you have to do is go on the MMA and Combative sites to see how difficult and time consuming it is to fill a bag correctly. Our fill material is 100% new, clean rag, selected for fiber content and characteristic. Our filling process is technical, tedious and thorough, a science. Two extremely experienced guys can only fill 8 bags in a day and that's total output between the two of them. As the bags are slowly fill loaded and compressed, the rag is blended so once the filling process is completed the bag has the specific feel, that right amount of "give", "bounce" from top to bottom, not a dead thud. Our bags are described by customers as "not hard, not soft, but sweet". Plus, you don't have the issue of material settling to the bottom of the bag so it feels like a brick. We have a customer that takes fights in Thailand that told us the KO Fightgear Thai bag is the best feeling bag he's ever trained on and that's, anywhere. Bags with a foam liner are a gimmick. Stay clear of bags that are quick filled by mechanical/hydraulic means. A slurry of rag or a combination of rag with other filler is dumped into their bag, quickly compressed with a mechanical/hydraulic piston, the top lid is then zippered shut and out the door. A telltale indicator of a mechanical/hydraulic filling process is that you'll find bulges and thin spots along the length of their bag. These are obvious imperfections in their manufacturing. Our method provides a calibrated inch by vertical inch filling process so the finished product has a consistent girth from top to bottom.

  • Bag Closure - Our Cord Lace Closure System vs. Their Zipper. - We don't use zippers to close the top lid of our bags. Zippers are mechanical parts and mechanical parts break. We cord lace through steel grommets then fasten closed with a secure knot. Another company makes great claims about the integrity of a YKK zipper and this we don't dispute. The bottom line is that zippers don't belong on Thai bags and especially their use of a small tooth "Penny shaving"zipper. All zippers have the design flaw for potential failure. We're sure you've gotten a shirt tail jammed in a pants zipper or same for a lining in a jacket zipper. Sometimes you get lucky by reversing the zipper slide away from the jam, clear the obstruction and then zipper fully opened or closed. Other times, the slide is firmly wedged into the jam; you grab the zipper tracks, spread them apart in an attempt to unstick the slide and bingo! The slide derails from the tracks and the zipper is broken. The same goes for the top lid of a heavy bag. When you need to refill their bag, first you'll want to overstuff the bag so the fill would have compression. You'll be pushing down on the top lid, operating a zipper and there is the potential that a rag edge becomes caught between the zipper tracks. Once the slide comes into contact with the rag you have a jam. Either you can unstick the slide or bingo again! You have a broken zipper. Our lace method of closure is SAS designed for durability and longevity. If you search around for truly high end heavy bags you'll find they all have a lace closure system, not a zipper. To go full circle in this paragraph, zippers are mechanical parts and mechanical parts break.

  • Hanging Straps/Chain Assembly - We get the phone calls and messages from school owners about bags they've purchased even from high dollar brand names and industry giants that suffer early fatigue failure which includes hanging straps. Our proven traditional hanging system consists of hanging straps secured to a chain assembly which is designed to go the long haul. Remember, our bags are manufactured to perform at the pro level. With the stress of a bag being banged around, the chain links of the chain assembly absorb the shock, not the hanging straps. If you scroll down, you'll see an image of our suspended Thai bag with hanging strap/chain assembly. You'll notice too that our hanging straps are mounted above the bag, not on the side so abrasion is eliminated and you have full uninterrupted vertical contact range of the bag. A couple of years ago, a school owner unpacked our tear drop bag and accidentally slit half way across a hanging strap. Upon receiving notice, we immediately sent him a section of hanging strap material with the instruction for an industrial sewer to bridge the material over the slit and stitch both ends to the original strap. A year later he gave us a call for Thai pads and we asked him about the bag. He never repaired the hanging strap. Even with the hanging strap cut half way through, the damage did not spread and the strap performed fine. This is an example of the over engineering that goes into our bags.

  • Color Selection - You'll find a company that offers 144 color options for their heavy bags and exclaim the reason as, "Don't be boring, have some fun!." That works fine for sampling lipstick shades at the cosmetic counter or selecting a topping for an ice-cream cone. We're not in the mix and match business, we're in the bag business. We look equally at the manufacture of our bags and your training program, both based on dedication and accomplishment. "Fun" only lasts a few simple moments while accomplishment lasts forever. We have customers that prefer the classic "Plain Jane" look of our bags, kind of like a "sleeper" hot rod. They're tuned into the uncluttered appearance of a solid color, our minimal branding, components well aligned, tight stitching and that all critical fill job. We receive many appreciations on this concept. We also have customers that are tuned into multi colors and graphics that say; "This bag is ugly, but I love it!" We stock solid black bags and do offer a color variety of black, red, royal blue and even White Lightning.

  • Product Warranty - We go over the top in craftsmanship and materials so our Thai bags and heavy bags crank out high mileage. All of our bags come with a full one year warranty against manufacturer's defect. If there's a defect it would surface immediately. There's only been a handful over the years and again we encourage you to check the forums to confirm the durability and longevity of our product. Our longstanding policy is to ship a factory fresh filled replacement bag at no extra charge to you. Recently, a security contractor in Afghanistan sent a requisition to his company's purchasing agent for Thai bags and Tear Drop bags and we received the order. The requisition specification was for "KO Fightgear product only". This is a strong indicator of confidence in the integrity of our heavy bags. There are longer warranties out there, different terms, but they aren't exactly as if John Hancock or John Henry are signing on the dotted line.

  • Local Pick-Up - If you're traveling on the east coast, along I-95 and are heading through Central New Jersey, we'll coordinate to meet you near The NJ Turnpike exit No 10. We're a stone's throw from New York City so you can come down and pick-up a bag early morning on the weekend and not get choked up in traffic. We've also hoisted our share of bags on to big rig sleepers. In fact, if you'll tell us in advance how you like your coffee, besides saving on the shipping charges, we'll tote you a fresh cup.

  • International Shipments - We're located only 18 miles from the ocean port of Newark, New Jersey and near all New York City area international airports. We ship ocean LCL (Less Than Container Load) and FCL (Full Container Load). We offer a crating service for LCL shipments for the purpose of preventing transit damage loss.

We offer extra heavy custom bags up to 500 Lbs. If you have an idea, let's talk! Since you're shopping for a Muay Thai bag, you may also want to give our 120 lb. tear drop bag a look.

Keep the following thought in mind during your decision-making process. Unlike a tank or two of gasoline, purchasing a bag is a one-time, long-term purchase, so it pays to get the best. Do not judge us against the low cost bags, but against the high dollar brands and if you do, you'll find significant savings, about $100.00 in selecting our product. But more so, you're purchasing a far superior bag and this we assure you. Besides, we're "Average Joes" offering the most extraordinary heavy bags.

Since you set aside your time to read through all the above information, you're now a Muay Thai bags and heavy bags expert and we trust that you will use this knowledge accordingly and consider KO Fightgear for your Muay Thai bag and heavy bag requirements. Thank you for reading.

This is how a name brand competitor makes bag weight. By inserting plastic pouches filled with sand that are mixed in with filler. As their thai bag is worked, the shock of repeated impact causes the plastic pouches to shift and fail. Between agitation and gravity the sand migrates, settling at the bottom of the bag and making the lower portion feel like a brick. Both the KO Fightgear thai and tear drop bags are 100% rag stuffed with absolutely no sand filler.

Detail

A customer asked for a more detailed photo of the Muay Thai bag so we strapped the 130 lbs, 6'x13" diameter Thai bag to our high/low. When the lunch bell sounds, secure a fork extension to the company high/low, rig up a bag and you've got yourself some serious lunchtime training.

Here's a view of the underside of the bag. A nylon loop is sewn at the center of the bottom lid. If you want to control bag swing, bungee from the loop to a fixed point. Keep in mind the bag does require movement in order to bleed off the force of the blow.

You'll notice from this image that our bags are laced closed and not zippered. We don't use zippers because zippers break!
Military Installations

We are honored that the US Navy Recruit Training Command - Great Lakes, IL called on KO Fightgear to supply 400 lbs heavy bags for its Boot Camp program. The Navy did extensive research on bag manufacturers before selecting KO Fightgear, noting that our bags are rated for the most aggressive training environments. To provide a sense of scale to the 400 lbs / 6 feet x 24 inch diameter heavy bags, our human gauge stands at 6 feet and weighs in at 185 lbs.

We offer custom label/logo silkscreen printing (as seen in the inset photo of the United States Navy Logo) click here for more information about custom labels/logos.

 
Testimonials

Boxing and kickboxing are two activities that many employees at ESPN enjoy doing during their workout. Our heavy/Thai bag always gets a lot of use and we were looking for one that would withstand the test of time. As we were searching for our 3rd replacement bag, we stumbled upon the KO Fightgear website. We loved what we saw but more importantly the service that was given to use by Neil. He made recommendations on what would be best for us, how to properly care for the bag and then has checked in to make sure things are still going well. Originally we thought a bag was a bag but we were clearly wrong. Stumbling upon the KO Fightgear website most likely has saved us from needing to look for another bag in the near future. Being at ESPN, many athletes come through our doors and recently two UFC fighters went a few rounds on the bag... they too were very impressed with the quality.

Mike D. ESPN Wellness Manager - Southington, CT

Mike was kind enough to provide a link to a video of one of their events where the KO Muay Thai Bag can be seen in the background at the 3:57 time mark. Thanks Mike!!!


I'm 2 months into my second year with your 130lb Thai bag. I've destroyed 2 300lb springs, 3 pairs of gloves and 1 joist hanger eye-bolt and this bag is STILL at the same level of awesome as the day it arrived. After a year of abuse in an open air garage setting, I can recommend this bag with the highest confidence. Thanks again for such a great product.

Hi Neil,

This is Russ from Squaw Valley. Just emailing you regarding your bag. This thing is a beast!! Compared to other high end bags, (three at my gym where I train), it definitely kicks their butt. The pack is nice and tight, tough outer shell, the stitching, literally everything about this bag screams "QUALITY!". These days it is hard to find quality with value, and you nailed it man. I put it through a few workouts so far and LOVE IT. It's almost a shame to beat the heck out of something so nice but that's what it's for. As far as packaging and shipping, it made it from the east coast to the west coast unscathed. The wrap job you guys did was awesome. Thanks again. Look forward to doing business with you again. 2 thumbs up!!!!

Russ E. - Squaw Valley CA


Neil, I have the bag up and have been working out on it. I must say it has a very nice impact response; just enough resistance, blow absorption and movement away from the strike- the perfect bag! thanks again

Customer testimonial on Sherdog


Hey Neil,

I have been literally pounding away on my bag for weeks now, I have to say that I have never used a bag so well packed in my life. I have used dozens of brands and models but this truly performs like no other. I was a little reserved on the shell being vinyl but after using it I actually prefer the vinyl you use to leather shelled bags. I can hit the bottom of the bag with full force kicks and I don't have to fear breaking my shins or feet. The bag is really not too firm or too soft. I am glad that I made this wonderful investment in your product and could not be happier. Keep up the good work I will absolutely recommend this bag to anyone who will listen. Take care,

Anthony D.
Auburn, AL


Hi Neil!

I am so sorry it has taken me so long to reply. Things have been crazy for us! Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that we love all of the gear that we've bought from you. The quality is great!

I've included some photos of our gym (finally!). You can see our layout and how great all of your heavy bags look!

Talk to you soon,
Seige MMA, Surprise Arizona - Chip Kirk, Owner

(Note: Muay Thai and Tear Drop bags are all supplied by KO Fightgear. Chip requested a two-tone bag so we made a few red bags with black collars. When Chip first contacted us about outfitting his school, we first mentioned for him to pick up a single bag for field trials. Needless to say, after testing, Chip placed the complete order.)


Hi Neil,
How are you doing? I hope all is well and that business is booming! I just wanted you to know that it has been 4 months of using my 130# Thai bag with daily pounding. It feels the same today as it did the first time I used it. It just feels so good to hit. And it has zero sag just as advertised. I also love the royal blue color I chose. It is the best bag I have ever used and I am glad I spent the money to have it shipped all the way over to me here in Hawaii. I just can't say enough of what a beautiful bag it is and how great it feels to pound on! Thank you for all your time and help Neil! I will be back for your teardrop bag!

Your friend in Hawaii,
Irv P.

Hi Neil,

The bag is awesome. I had to hang it from a 2x6 that is lag bolted across two rafters in my living room ceiling. Which I don't think my landlord would appreciate if and when he ever sees it. Even with the 2x6 I still have about 4" of clearance from the floor so the bag fits just fine. I've gotten two really good extended workouts on the bag so far and I must say I'm loving it, though I don't think my neighbors are to happy. The bag is solid but with just enough give, it feels the same top to bottom, thumbs up on a good product. My brother, also a former Marine, walked into my Apt., was shocked by the bag hanging in my living room and asked me "what the hell do I have a "SCUD" missile in the middle of my living room for", to which I replied, "that's no missile, that's my new therapist. It was a pleasure meeting you as well as doing business with you, you definitely have my endorsement.

David


Hi Neil,

Sorry for the late reply. I did hang the bag and started pounding on it since day one. I'm impressed by the tightness/hardness from top to bottom of this bag. This is my fourth bag since I started martial arts and I would say that, this is the best bag that I can't resist hitting it everyday. Thank you so much.

Regards,
Modesto B. - Sun Valley CA


WOW! This bag is more than I expected. Here is what I love so far:

  • Number one..it is the nicest looking banana bag I have ever seen.
  • The fill in it is packed nice and tight
  • The top straps make it quiet (and doesn't bother my wife when I beat the crap out of it)
  • When it is kicked, it seems to buckle nicely but not too much
  • When striking it makes a great smacking sound
  • The quality and craftsmanship is in all the small details of the bag eg: stitching, fill, packaging, etc.
  • While my friends are still trying to figure out how to fill their overpriced fairtex bags, I am punching and kicking with my new bag and I saved money...lol

Seriously great job to you and your team. Thanks a ton.

Chris P., Jacksonville, Florida


This is, without a doubt, my favorite bag of any I have used in my home or the gym. It's packing gives a consistent hardness throughout the bag, and after hanging for a long time, it doesn't settle like so many bags do, and after being hit for so long it doesn't soften up in those areas.

All told, it's just a typical high quality product I have really come to expect from KO Fightgear, you're the best.

Dan B. - Twin Cities, MN


I ordered a banana bag from you guys in July over the phone while home from overseas duty. You were extremely pleasant and expedient. Now that I am home finally, I have made good use of the bag. I love your products and will always look to KO FIGHTGEAR FIRST!!!!!!!!!!

SSG Devon O. U.S.Army - Wichita, KS


Just wanted to thank you for the wonderful bag! It arrived promptly and in perfect condition. My boyfriend loves it. It was a pleasure doing business with you and your company.

Best Wishes,
Jaime H. - Massapequa, NY


Neil, I just wanted to let you know that my son and I love the new heavy bag. It's taking a serious beating almost every day and I believe that this bag will be around for a good long time. It looks great and the workmanship is second to none. I couldn't be more pleased. I look forward to doing more business with you soon. I couldn't be happier with the way you do business and the quality of your products. Thank you for everything.
