Key Features

  • Sewn in handles on each side - may be used for tie downs or to secure the Skimmer using a 3" climber's clip attached to the Skimmer's carrying tab.
  • Large zippered opening with protective flap for easy secure filling
  • The SkimmerSack Beanbag transforms into many different configurations for endless shooting possibilities with or without the use of the Skimmer II Ground Pod. Construction and Key Features:
  • The SkimmerSack is the most durable and the most flexible beanbag on the market. Here is why:
  • Unique transformable design - a multitude of uses and configurations. See images for suggested uses.
  • First ever "U" shaped bag with unique round-top design for use alone, or matched perfectly with the Skimmer Ground Pod II placed on top.
  • For use with any lens and camera combination from wide angle up to a 600/4 or 800/5.6.
  • Continuous non-skid Toughtek fabric inside of the legs for non slip grip on car doors
  • Highly contoured design allows less fill than other bags - weighs only 8 pounds when full using whole sunflower seeds
  • All seams are double stitched for extra strength - stress areas stitched at least 5 times*
  • Hook and loop straps at each end of the "legs" for tying the bag down to door handles or safari roof rack.
  • When used with the Skimmer Ground Pod II you can use with any ballhead, Gimball head or simply install a quick release plate for the lowest profile option. Riser blocks may also be used to fine tune your shooting height.
  • Here are some basic fill guidelines:
  • See included instruction sheet for suggested fill - we use sunflower seeds and feed them to the birds when we are finished with them. With 70-90% fill you can place over a car door and shoot with a lens alone or with the use of a Skimmer II Ground Pod on top. It can also be used upside down.
  • With 40% fill the "legs" can be folded under making a flatter "pancake" style beanbag for use with smaller lenses or for a lower profile. With 70-80% fill the"legs" can be spread out and placed on top of a car or in between the rails of asafari vehicle - leaving the round surface available for cradling your lens or placing the Skimmer II on top.
  • We recommend about 80% fill when using with a Skimmer from the car - more for atighter firmer top and less for a lower profile. Less fill allows the Skimmer IIto be cradled by the excess material on the top surface and allows a lower shooting profile.
  • By adjusting the amount of fill the SkimmerSack can be transformed for a varietyof uses, with or without the Skimmer II Ground Pod.
