                I love the versatility of these weights. You can essentially wrap them around any tripod in a number of ways. They keep my light stands -- especially when I have umbrellas mounted on them -- from becoming something out of the scene of a Mary Poppins movie. Yes, they are a little more expensive, but they are worth it! (A lot LESS expensive than a new flash and a new modifier. I've been there....)

                    You buy a protective filter for your camera lens, but you may overlook a weight bag as protection for your expensive strobe lights. Weighting down your light stands is the simplest way to keep them from blowing over and damaging your lights outdoors.

                      I use these weights to stabilize my strobes during weddings shoots. Very easy to handle, takes little space and does the job perfect. I'm so glad I put an extra [$]$ just to get these perfectly designed weights

                        These cost more - but the flexibility of being able to hang them on a small hook or over a mic stand is worth it.

                          I've tried to make my own weightbags using sand or lead weights. They were okay...certainly not elegant. I purchased one of these Boa Weights and WOW. They are compact, completely versatile and they hold down my lightstands perfectly. They are heavy (I have 2-10lb and 1-15 lb bag) so I just sling them over my shoulder.

                            I have the 10lb. sand bag and use it to hold down my light stand for security purposes when using my big beauty dish. It's SO easy and convenient to just drape it over a bar to hold the stand down and it secures it very well. I know I can walk away and not have to worry about someone knocking it over. Does its job good!

                                  Well-designed weight bag for c-stands. They are a bit heavy, but, isn't that what you get a weight bag for?

                                  If you really want to counterbalance something big on a c-stand, you want the next heavier bag, or two of these, but they work great for me to secure a modest-sized reflector on a sloping sidewalk. Sold on these - after using these, I wouldn't get another bag, unless I had to backpack with them, in which case I'd get one you could fill on site. But that would be messy.

                                      This bags are very dense weight and with the non-slip strap that stay put on light stands. I always find conventional sand bags slip off light stands and are better suited to using only on C-Stands.

                                      The boa bags are extremely well made and I have no fear they will ever come apart

                                        Other weight bags may offer a cheaper price or heavier weight options, but overall I love the Matthews Boa weight bags as they are pre-filled with sand, sealed shut, and give me a lot of flexibility with their design.

                                        I can use them to offset a boom arm, wrap around tripod or light stand bases, or hang midway on a stand handle to offset the weight of something.

                                          I've got plenty of standard sand bags... not sure why I waited so long to buy the Boa's... but I'm glad I did. Just used them during a storm, they are extremely well made and great to throw around light stands, or tripod for extra weight.

                                            I use this as a tripod weight. Wraps under the head of the tripod, perfect for counterbalancing a camera slider or to limit camera shake during time lapse.

                                                      This has to be the greatest product to date. I use to carry around sand bags in a large container and it can be a bit cumbersome especially when I am by myself. Clients would even offer to carry some of my stuff to the location. These boa bags are life savers. They are small and easy to transport. They stay with me on ever shoot regardless if I need them or not. Awesome.
