Heavy Bag for home use?

Anyone have a heavy bag that they use at home? If so, mine telling me which one you got? Looking for quality, but not wanting to break the bank here...

I would like to get a bag that doesn't have to be secured in the ceiling...instead I'll have it hanging from a stand and I'll have it out in the garage.

Also, something that isn't so firm that it feels like I'm kicking a wall.

You should wrap your hands anyway, mister! :: shakes fist :: If not, your knuckles can look like sh!t! Sometimes I have to add a little piece of sponge under my wraps for more cushion.

This would be for days I can't get to the gym and/or nights when I have a lot of extra energy and can just go hit the bag around for awhile.

Also, do some sets and then mix that with some jumping rope.

I have a 70 LB Everlast bag that came with bag gloves and hand wraps for about $85, only problem is that it is pretty rough on the hands. I think I need to gently take a baseball bat to it just to soften it up a bit.
