Cheap punching bags you can find under $30.
When you are browsing for cheap punching bags under $30, name brand and durability are important. As with any product you buy, reviews are good to browse to see the response from consumers who already purchased the same item.
This product was actually listed under $20, and I wanted to offer a very inexpensive option to start with. At the time I wrote this article this product had 87 reviews with a nearly 5-star rating. It might list as a kids punching bag but that is mostly because the weight limit is only 35 pounds. The durability of the bag itself should be fine and not a concern.
This is an excellent high-quality bag for the price. It had over 400 reviews when I wrote this article and a 4-star rating. This bag is 4 feet long and much larger than the previous listed punching bag. I couldn’t find the manufacturers maximum weight recommendations. However, I did find some customer reviews where they stated they had put 150 pounds into the bag and have had no issues. I would feel confident in saying you’d be safe anywhere between 75-100 pounds.
This is going to be another 4-foot, top-quality bag for under $30. This bag had over 400 reviews as well on Amazon and over a 4-star rating. With multiple colors to choose from, it also comes with free hand wraps.

This is a very beautiful looking bag and the only FILLED bag on this list. It only had a few reviews at the time I wrote this article, but they were all 5-star reviews. This one was listed at slightly over $50 but it’s a set. The biggest reason I listed this product is because it had almost 800 reviews and a 5-star rating! You can choose either 4 or 5 feet for your bag and it comes with a chain, wall brackets, gloves, jump rope, hang wraps, and grips. It’s really a complete set if you are just getting started this is a good deal. The weight capacity is about 50 pounds.
Reminder, this is a filled heavy bag. There is no need for you to stuff it yourself.
