the straps to the top of my heavy bag busted. This is the 2nd time this has happened I just bought it a few months ago, I don't really have the money to buy a new one, does anyone know how I can still use it or repair it?

what kind of bag is it???? and hmm if the bag is really swinging that much...u may b pushing your punches too much..a proper hit on the bag will fold around ur hand...not sway the bag all over...just a thought not tryna accuse u of wrong hitting...

Its a 100lb bag I think its everlast it was like $80, I don't have a regular bag stand though its hanging from a pole outside (home made) causing it to swing like crazy plus we have had 100+ weather in the past couple of months with like a total of 4 days of rain only.

My first bag (same type and brand) lasted me 2 years before it busted.
