Our Rating

The Everlast 100-Pound Nevatear Heavy Bag looks like a standard punching bag that you would generally see hanging from the ceiling.

You can hang this one from the ceiling using the chain that’s found on top of it.

We would always advise and insist that you hang any punching bag directly from a stud beam or a similar structure.

Otherwise, you could end up damaging the ceiling.

This model comes in two different sizes, 80 pounds and 100 pounds.

They have both been constructed using a webbed matrix of both synthetic leather and vinyl, creating an excellent level of durability.

A yellow canvas material has also been used on the top and the bottom of the punching bag, making it stand out.

More Features

The durability that comes with the Everlast 100-Pound Nevatear Heavy Bag is important due to the nature of the product.

Repeated punches and jabs would destroy a product with no durability.

The outer case of this punching bag ensures that it is durable enough to last for a long time.

You don’t have to fill this Everlast product up on your own, as it comes pre-filled with a mixture of both synthetic and natural fibers.

This specific mixture of fibers is good when it comes to impact absorbency.

Especially when that impact comes in the form of punches and kicks.

It should be noted that a lot of professionals refill this punching bag because bags of sand have the potential to move.

Preferred Use By Boxers

It should be noted that this punching bag can also be anchored to the ground.

Most amateur and professional boxers prefer them hanging freely.

The movement of a punching bag that can sway and spin is important, as it keeps you thinking on your toes.

That can be used to improve your reaction time, something that can be very important when someone else’s fist is about to hit your face.

One of the main features of this particular punching bag would have to be the PowerCore center that can be found within it.

The center itself consists of a number of metal rivets that have been used to align several different sandbags.

These sandbags enable the upper section of the bag to have some give -- unlike the stiff bottom half -- while still having the stability that would come with being stiff.

Can the Everlast 100-Pound Nevatear Heavy Bag be used as part of a training routine?

The Everlast 100-Pound Nevatear Heavy Bag could be used successfully in a wide variety of different training routines. 

It can help both amateurs and professionals develop a range of punching and kicking techniques.

This doesn’t just apply to boxers, but also to people that study any of a huge number of different martial arts.

The repetitive impact that comes with either punches or kicks when they hit a heavy bag can change things about your own body over time.

This repetitive motion can add to the bone density in your body.

Increasing your bone density is important, and it has been the forefront of martial arts like Wing Chun for a long time.

This is a rather important thing for any professional or amateur to take into consideration.

Any increase in bone density results in stronger bones, and that can prevent further injury down the line.

The process works in a similar way to the process that occurs when you build muscle.

It results in micro-fractures of the bone that harden as time passes.

This isn’t just beneficial for people in sporting fields, as we could all benefit from having stronger bones as we age.

An Everlast 100-Pound Nevatear Heavy Bag can also be used as part of a well-thought through a training routine.

Any form of resistance is the key to effective strength training, and a bag of this weight would certainly offer a form of resistance.

This additional weight also puts more pressure on your muscles, making them perform better.

This creates microscopic tears in your muscles, prompting them to grow and get bigger.

If you are using a punching bag to make this happen, you do need to remember that your diet is the most important part of the equation.

Without rest and the right amount of protein, you will end up damaging your body.

Who Is This Punching Bag Suitable For?


The Everlast 100-Pound Nevatear Heavy Bag is a fantastic example of the types of product that Everlast can produce. 

This model would be an excellent option for both trained fighters and amateurs.

People do need to err on the side of caution when it comes to hitting the bottom of the bag.

This is because the bottom of the bag becomes rock solid due to the repeated impact of kicks and punches.

Due to this, you should always make sure that your hands and feet are protected if you do plan on hitting the bottom.

You also have to be careful not to hit the sand bags that exist within the PowerCore, something that is possible if they make their way to either the sides or the bottom of the bag.

It will hurt if you hit them, especially if you hit them at full power.  

Some people adjust their bags slightly, refilling them so that there is no risk of the bags of sand slipping out of place.

This bag can be used in a variety of different scenarios.

Professional boxers could use it to spar.

Bodybuilders could use it as a fun way to build muscle.

People looking to lose weight or improve their overall fitness level could really challenge themselves with it.

Our Veredict

While the Everlast 100-Pound Nevatear Heavy Bag is a realistically good punching bag, it would be best bought by people that are willing to spend a little bit of time refilling it.

Punching a sandbag would hurt, so the risk of that alone is enough to warrant refilling.

Once refilled, this punching bag goes from being good to being amazing.

It is suitable for people with a variety of needs, ranging from amateurs to professionals.

It would be right at home in a gym, or in the spare room of a house as long as that house has the structural integrity to handle it.
