First of all I want to say why you should never get a “regular” training bag for boxing training. Actually the problem is not the ventilation however the space can be a very legit problem. Many regular gym bags don’t have enough space for boxing equipment. Let’s face it boxing training is very versatile thus we carry many equipment including boxing gloves, focus mitts, boxing headgear, shoes… And these gears are just some of them. I also carry battle ropes time to time so we can always use more space.
Below, there are really quality boxing gyms bags and I will also explain their qualities briefly.
1. Venum “Challenger Xtreme” Backpack Product Overview
Best Place to Buy: amazon
- Convertible (backpack to duffle bag)
- LOTS of space
- Adjustable and comfy shoulder compartment
- Has amazing ventilation
- Your drinks will stay cool at the side cooler pocket
- Water resistant
- Seriously it is the best choice for a boxing gym bag
- My trainer has this bag and has very good experiences with it
- Looks cool
Firstly this bag has a lot of space (350 x 880 x 240 mm) and its capacity is one of the largest bags on the market.
Venum “Challenger Xtreme” is convertible. This bag can be converted duffle bag to backpack within seconds.
The shoulder department is well padded and when you carry the bag, thanks to that padding you won’t have any discomfort whatsoever. This shoulder part is also fully adjustable.
This bag has a side place which can keep your drinks cool. And I have trained in many bad and hot gyms in Thailand. Outside I had to walk 5 minutes to get a cool drink and well that was not pleasant at all. All I want to say is that you might really need a cold beverage to fuel your muscles after a hard focus mitt session.
This bag is made of polyester fabric and this sturdy material is used by many training bag companies and based on feedback I can easily say that it is really durable. And it is also waterproof as well.
Its mesh system works great and it ventilates your gear well and also gets rid of bacteria.
This bag even has a hidden pocket which allows you to put your phone or MP3 player.
Personal Experience: I have never used this bag however my trainer could put many stuff in it. Sometimes he even carried our battle ropes with his equipment as well. So after you get this bag I think that the space will never be an issue. I am absolutely sure that you will love using Venum “Challenger Xtreme”.
Price: It offers a lot (durability, space, cool space…) and considering some big brands (I can’t give any names on here but I am sure that you know them) overprice their low quality bags, the price of Venum “Challenger Xtreme” is actually good.
2. Venum “Trainer Lite” Sport Bag Product Overview
Durability: 9.0 / 10.0
Quality / Price Rating: 8.8 / 10.0
- Lots of space
- Durable (made of polyester)
- Adjustable straps
- Good ventilation
- Many color selections including red and yellow
This is one of the most popular boxing gym bags and I have seen this bag more than I can count. This bag is also made of polyester which is very durable and has adjustable straps as well.
One thing you should note that many regular training bags don’t have suitable spaces to store fragile items like mouth guard. This one has it.
This part is well padded and will definitely protect your equipment.
It has also lots of space and it can store your whole boxing equipment.
Price: The price of this popular bag is actually quite good. Check out the latest price on amazon.
Let’s continue with the boxing gym bag which has the greatest quality price ratio…
3. Sanabul HYBRID Gym Duffel Backpack Bag Product Overview
- Hybrid bag (duffle bag to backpack)
- Lots of space
- Made of military grade of materials
- Has the greatest quality price ratio
- Compartment for dirty gear
- Most popular bag on the market
Sanabul always makes products which have great quality price ratio. I trained with punch mitts of this company and it took hard strikes quite well and had incredible price for overall quality.
This bag simply offers the same deal. It is made of military grade (very quality) materials.
This material is also waterproof and this bag can be converted duffle bag to backpack quite easily.
Sanabul Hybrid also has lots of space and there is a compartment which is made for your dirty gears. It can be a really nice place for you to store boxing hand wraps after training. Let’s face it sometimes we can’t go home after practice and these dirty gears can stay in the bag for hours. These need to have at least some air and that compartment takes care of that.
As a side note if you are looking for a bag to travel, get Sanabul Hybrid. Because you can use travel locks to lock every pocket of this bag. You can also convert it to backpack as well.
Price: Sanabul Hybrid has very good durability, has many useful qualities and an amazing price. It seriously gives you more than your money’s worth. Go on amazon for the price.
Even though I only have experience with one of these boxing gym bags I researched, read many reviews of them. Shortly I did my homework 😉 These get amazing ratings from boxing forums and people always say very positive things about them. With that Venum “Challenger Xtreme” just stands out more among these. It has great ventilation and also it is a very sturdy product. Venum has also largest capacity and many buyers reported that they have been using this bag more than 2+ years.
