Everlast Heavy Bag

Hey guys, I recently got a Everlast Heavy Bag withing 5 Minutes of using it.. all of the inside fell to the bottom. I was wondering if anyone knows how to fix this problem permanently? Possibly filling it up even more with a material I buy myself? Or should I just take this bag back and buy a different brand because from what I've read this happens to almost all of them.

Its 100lbs by the way. It also hurts the HELL out of my shins when I kick it since everything's in the middle down. It also makes it so when I punch the top ares its basically hitting nothing

add more material and just keep hitting it, its going to hurt until you soften it up

try to roll it on the ground, and make it redistrubute the material, or just add some material, like condensed foam, then take a roll of ducktape (maybe two) and tightly tape up the whole thing so the foam has nowere to go.

I have to do after that.. Even after just using it for 15 Minutes? Are all Ever Last heavy bags this bad should I look for another brand? I wouldn't mind spending a little more money if it means getting a better product.
