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.

Note! Empty bags are completely sewn except for a 1" seam, left open for the user to fill and then sew closed.

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 25 lbs (11.4 kg) when filled with sand.

          These are inexpensive, tough sand bags, just add your own sand. YOU DO NEED A SEWING MACHINE FOR THESE!!!! So much cheaper to order without sand and fill yourself through the 2" gap they leave un-sewn. You do need an extra-sturdy sewing machine and needle to get thru all the layers of material.

          I suggest using a plastic bag inside (thin garbage bag or similar) and filling the 'bag-with-in-a-bag' securing it with a knot or twist ties before sewing the nylon outside bag, so that your sand is somewhat waterproofed, if you ever intend to use them outside.

            But if you don't have the money just put sand in $1 shopping bag and sow it!

              Sent these sandbags back. No way to secure sand inside, two openings, no zippers. Maybe the ones I recieved were defective.

                Great to buy it like this as its empty so its easy to transport when you buy it and if you're relocatiing. it also encourages you to go to the beach to fill it up - which has got to be good!

                Also you can control how heavy you make it. You dont have to fill it up completely!
