LensCoat : Picture 1 regular $69.95

LensCoat 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.

Nice Beanbag

By

from Bigfork, Montana  -  Photo Enthusiast

The Skimmersack makes a good platform for shooting wildlife from the car - quite a bit better than a standard (oblong and smaller) beanbag. Construction seems good, but true durability is yet to be determined. The flat, round top gives a surface that's easy to adjust the camera on. We filled ours with sunflower seeds contained in about 8-10 one quart plastic zipper bags (squeeze extra air out of these). It's hefty because it's a sizeable volume, but that's beneficial for supporting a heavy camera/lens combo. Solid poly beads might work well also, but Styrofoam would be too light. Shots taken on the bag are nice and sharp (let the bag do the work and use a light touch). It fits our doors very well and is even useful with the window up a little ways. Overall a very good product.

Good beanbag for a 10 day safari shoot

By

from Hawaii  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Provides a good base to rest my telephoto lens on. However, after 10 days of shooting, the seam started to come apart. I will have to get the seam fixed if i want to use this beanbag again for another safari shoot.

Perfect for a Safari shoot.Great Support

By

from Hawaii  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

-used this beanbag with a 300mm f/4 +1.8 TC on a Nikon D300 body. -placed/wedged the beanbag between the rail and the top opening of our safari Land Cruiser. Gives great support. Took a lot of nice sharp images. -filled it 90% with african red beans -after 10 days of moving and tossing the bag around. The stitching at the seam started to come apart a little. I don't think it will survive my second safari.
