Matthews Sandbags come in a variety of shapes and weights. They are used for securing the bases of light stands and set walls. Many have handles, for hanging on hooks or risers. Some have two wings, to allow draping over light stand legs.
Most are cordura nylon, some are vinyl covered and waterproof.
Some models of sandbags are shipped empty, for convenience and economy. They can be filled with sand, or any type of weight you provide, and emptied for storage, or transport.

The cordura is made out of flame and stain-resistant nylon.
Matthews employs an additional inner liner of waterproof material in each sandbag to add a heightened degree of durability and safety.
This sandbag is supplied empty; it weighs 15 lbs (6.8 kg) when filled with sand.

Fine product if you can sew it yourself

By Marion St. Film

Comments about Matthews Sandbag - 15 lb - Empty - Black:

I thought this product would be easier to sew up. I'm sure its a great product as I love other Matthews products, but the hassle of putting it together myself wasn't worth my time. I needed heavy-duty sewing material, plus living in the city, finding free sand isn't easy.

      Comments about Matthews Sandbag - 15 lb - Empty - Black:

      What BenM said about needing an industrial sewing machine is true. Bought 2 of these bags and didn't realize it would be such a chore to seal them. They're durable bags...if you can get them properly sewn shut. In the future I'll get zippered bags or something I don't have to sew.

      Comments about Matthews Sandbag - 15 lb - Empty - Black:

      This bag is awesome... if you have a serious industrial quality sewing machine to close the bag. I assumed it had a closure system.If you don't have a sewing machine or you want something you can open and close freely, Matthews makes another bag for another [$] that seals without sewing. I have used filled Matthews bags, but never ones I've had to fill on my own.I recently set up a studio for a local company and purchased 20 of the Impact Orange Cordura Sandbags that have a double-zipper. I actually bought a couple hundred pounds of play sand at Home Depot and about 40 freezer gallon Ziplock bags. (Ziplock bags to keep the sand from seeping through to supplement the double-zipper.) The Impact bags are less expensive and maybe not quite the same build quality as Matthews but if you're not using them all the time in really rough locations, then you will be fine with the Impact bags.
