    I have the canvas style and your knuckles do take a beating. In fact, it takes a while to allow your skin to toughen up a bit so you can go full out on it, so the synthetic leather may be the better choice.

    I use a canvass bag with vinyl sewed on top. Easy clean up and lasts long time :)

    Thanks for the replies! I'm liking the synthetic leather one since it's quite easy to clean and I can go full out right away. I also like the canvas one because this one will toughen up your fists... I don't think the synthetic leather one will do anything to toughen up your fists. Or am I way off base here?

    I'm using denim on mine , I wore a hole through the canvas .
    So I just cut up an old pair of jeans and put a patch over it .

    I've only used canvas ones , I like the way they abrade the skin on the knuckles and any error in your punching is quickly highlighted , and besides the bloodstains on the canvas give it character.123
