    ...There are the Kangaroo leather versions of those bags and I have two, Of course they are lighter and hold up a lot longer, I'm not sure when Everlast started making that kangaroo version of those bags and when they stopped, The one of the two vintage kangaroo versions of the bags that I have has started to wear down to the lining, I haven't started hitting on the other yet, You can see the pics of these bags in one of my older threads...Ralph

    p.s. I said 4202 not 4204
    The only pics I can find of that bag are mostly action shots. This one was active until late 1990's when bladder gave out.

    The 4200 9x6 was my favorite for many years. It's on the cover of The Speed Bag Bible, picture shot in 1993.

    I never really saw, or hit an 8x5 (4204) until after that, but I switched to Ringside bags at that time.

    That didn't take very long.

    As you can see in the photo, this bag has the plastic piping. Pretty much the only negative I can say about it. I have several sets of mitts, but the thick ones are too bulky to control this speedy bag and the thin ones let me feel the piping. I may have to try a pair of those gel speed wraps. I have trad cotton wraps, but its such a process to get in and out of them.

    That's about the era when Everlast was at it's peak. Personally I was impressed with their line in the early 1980's. The pro and institutional line of bags were spot on, just stay away from the bags used in striking bag kits (4215, 4216 and the infamous "plasticon" bag). The trick is to find a 4200 or 4202 that hasn't been hit into oblivion. They are out there,and sometimes you will find a deal. The later versions had the leather piping replaced with plastic, I would stay away from these as it's darn near impossible to beat the piping down flat on these. Really beats up your knuckles unless you use wraps or bag mitts.
