The Bear Bag is a handcrafted 32 panel footbag made for intermediate to advanced play. This footbag is excellent for freestyle! It is easy to stall and set consistently. They come in two styles, facile and hybrid (a combination of facile and micro-suede), and they come in a variety of colors and patterns.
Footbag artisan Brian “Bear” Sherrill hails from Mountain View, California. Now the most popular stitcher in the United States, Brian was inspired to start stitching when he was browsing through a local fabric store and found some crazy looking material, micro-suede. Upon further inspection, he found that it was quite grippy, shiny, and thin…PERFECT for a footbag.
Bear Bags are 1.5 inches in diameter and weigh approximately 2.3 oz. (65 grams). They are standard freestyle size (about the size of a golf ball), high to medium gather, low bite (how deep the stitching goes), and long lasting when used for freestyle and properly cared for.
The hybrids have very high gather to compensate for the floppiness that comes from the microsuede. This allows the bag to be round and stally at the same time.
Filler: non-toxic metal, and a combination of light space fill. Most bags are about half to three quarters full.
As always, freestyle bags must be cared for properly, no toe ups (or chicken scratching) with this bag. All our 32 panel freestyle bags are designed for stalls, not continuous kicking. The life of the bag will be shortened if all you do is kick. If you are a hacker/kicker please see our line of casual bags. Wash your bag when it becomes dirty (mild dish soap or shampoo works fine), it will last longer.
COLORS WILL VARY. (Known for the very cool and unique colors combos!)
