Rated 4 out of 5 by bensrb Great kettlebell, but needs a packaging upgrade
This is the fourth CAP kettlebell I have purchased; the first from Walmart.com. Here is my opinion:
-Smooth, protective finish looks good and is comfortable to use (no sharp burrs or seams)
-Excellent price from Walmart.com
-Fast shipping from Walmart.com (order came two days prior to estimated arrival, on a Saturday)
-Packaging from the manufacturer is not sufficient to protect kettlebell during transit
So far, I have had four of these shipped to my door. The packaging from the manufacturer consists of a plastic bag around the kettlebell, a few very thin pieces of styrofoam on the inside of the box, and some plastic strapping to help hold the box together. Even on the previous three I had received where the finish was satisfactory, the boxes were in pretty bad shape when they arrived -- the thin styrofoam was nearly ground to powder. It's not molded around the kettlebell, so it allows the weight to move around too much. The 80lb kettlebell I received has a few marks on the handle and body, which I wasn't happy about, but it was acceptable -- after all, it's for exercise, not display. However, the 60lb. kettlebell that I just received from Walmart.com is a mess. There are multiple scuffs and chips out of it, including holes (!) -- how does a hole appear in a solid piece of iron? The holes may have been a manufacturing defect, and honestly, if that's all that was evident, it would not have been a big deal. Again, this is a problem from the packaging from the manufacturer, not Walmart.com -- they had packaged the kettlebell box inside another shipping box. My only beef with Walmart.com is that based on the condition of the manufacturer box, I believe they should have realized that the contents would not be in good shape. I've included a couple pictures of the kettlebell and the manufacturer box. The box was not modified at all before the picture was taken -- I was able to pull the kettlebell out without cutting or ripping it further.
Despite my last experience, I plan to return this to a store and try to get a replacement -- but realize the condition in which it will arrive is highly variable.
Rated 5 out of 5 by wfe579 Great product for best value
Kettlebells are expensive pieces of iron, but Walmart has a wide selection of KBs and good prices, especially on the CAP line. I ordered a 60lb. KB and had it delivered to my nearest store. I received a text notifying me when I can pick it up, and doing so was quick and convenient. This was a good experience, and I'm happy with my purchase.
Rated 5 out of 5 by jcosley Awesome kb's!
These are very cheap yet effective....super heavy duty!!! I love these and intend to buy more...for the price they are unbeatable and the shipping is ridiculously low on these!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 The most bang for your buck!
Searched amazon for almost a year before, then saw this. Definitely the Most bang for your Buck! Prompt shipping, took some damage/ scratches in the process but I was not about to return it even though it could have been. This item will rust once scratched, suggest a rubber spray coating around the base.
Bottom line is this is a piece of exercise equipment and it will last for a very long time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tts001 Fantastic value and quality
the shipping and packaging is horrible. The cardboard box fell apart and there was no packing inside. Get it right and I may order another.
