Punching Bag, Speed Bag, Striking Bag?

At Everlast we called them striking bags not to be confused with the heavy training bag, which is a totally different exercise item all together. At one point in the early 1980s the Everlast factory in the Bronx was making as many as 6000 bags a week. At that time Everlast produced 16 different models of different sizes, style and materials. Since the beginning of time, man was hitting some kind of stuffed bag or sack for one reason or another. The bag would be stuffed with hair, feathers, straw or any combination. When Charles Goodyear perfected vulcanized rubber in the late 19th century, air filled tube bladders could be used for a variety of applications such as car tires and sports balls
