Is there anything wrong with this punch bag?

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B000N3T1GI/ref=s9_simz_gw_s2_p200_i1?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=0JRA90995ZSN6T1HHTTF&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=467128533&pf_rd_i=468294
 
33 quid delivered is a very good price for this bag.  My main aim is to get something that I can work on for cardio rather than hitting huge lumps out of it.  I've not done boxing before so will be very much a beginner.
 
I also hope to get my wife to use it.
 
At 33 quid I can't really go wrong?  And if I do want to take it further then I guess I can always get something heavier in future.

    I'm in the market for a punch bag too...I would've thought at that price it would be seriously light.

    Hope I am wrong though :D ?


    EDIT: Apparently it weighs 22/25kg depending on who you believe...is that a decent weight for a punch bag? I don't want something that's going to fly all over the place when I hit it.

    I have had a 6ft version of the one above for 4 years now, it has taken some serious beatings in the past.

    Personally wouldn't go for a 4 footer, moves around too much.

    Yeah, I thought at 22 or so kg it might be ok.  

    A six footer sounds better tho.

    Punchbag plans temporarily on hold as the wife now wants a garage conversion.  Drat.

    I ended up buying the 60 inch one of these.

    Free delivery cos I bought some other stuff with it and it arrived very quickly, really happy with it.
