Great bag!

Being a Theatre Tech, I've been around sand bags for years. This bag is unique in that it's designed to hold 4 bottles. I found that 24oz. Pepsi bottles filled with sand fit perfectly. While it would be OK to use water bottles, or Pepsi-filled bottles, liquid does not weigh as much as sand does. I bought a 50lb. bag of sand at [@]for less than $4, and have filled 16 bottles for my 4 sand bags, and probably have enough for the 2 additional sand bags I'm ordering today.

Reeked of tar

These bags smelled terrible and the substance they were treated with came off on my hands and light stands.

Great Idea

Can carry water bottles to location drink when done. I would use just water in the bottles as that is less messy. Other than that great simple idea.

Overall pretty good

By

So far these have done okay for us. We bought 20 of them for our tripods for picture days to keep them from blowing over in the Southern CA wind. They are a little too long, but they aren't really made for tripods I don't think. I like being able to fill water bottles with sand to put in them so the sand doesn't leak. However, make sure to duct tape the bottle completely so it doesn't break.

Not as messy as sand

By

from Chicago Western Suburbs  -  Pro Photographer

I can't wait to take it on location. It will be much less messy than sand in bags that can tend to leak out. If this leaks, I just have to wipe it up!

Who needs a little extra weight?

By

from NJ  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use mine on my lightweight tripod when the wind kicks up and you want a little extra protection. I usually use water (freshly filled in case you get thirsty) bottles instead of sand for weights! An inexpensive gadget! What photographer isn't a gadgeteer?
