    Oh, why hello there!

    I just bought a 160 cm rexion (imitation leather, I guess) heavy bag.

    I've hung it up in my garage. An unheated garage.

    I live in central Norway, and in the winters, it's not uncommon for temperatures to drop to -15 or even -20.

    Is this harmful to the longevity of the bag? Should I bring it inside for storage?

    Can I use it even though it is very cold, if I should wish to do so? or will it be like punching a block of ice or something...?

    Anybody got any views on this at all? I don't want to damage the bag... can one safely store a bag in these temperatures?

    If the temperature get to -20, it may be a good idea to store it indoors, and rig up a quick clip to hook it up and use it in the garage when you want to work out. My concern would be that the fill may get very hard in those temperatures, and the synthetic leather may even crack. I hope this helps.
