        I've used other sandbags, and put them through the ringer. Most leak after a short while, even the ones taht are double-lined. These bags have stood up to my abuse on various video shoots and locations, and I highly recommend them!

            Expensive, but the most durable sandbags I've ever used.

            Of course, I've never had issues with less durable sandbags, so they might be fixing a problem that doesn't exist (that being said, most of the sets I've worked on have been indoor studio settings)

            In the end, I'd highly recommend if you'll be doing a lot of shooting - especially outdoor shooting. Indoor shooting? Might be worth saving your money.

                Just a great basic sandbag. Good price and so far it has lasted a handful of shoots.

                  I do audio. This is a basic sandbag. I it bought it for anchoring a c stand to do audio stuff. Sandbags are heavy. I bet this or few of these could stop bullets. Get a taxi or car if you are going to lug them around.

                          Great for making sure your lighting or your scene wont get knocked over or fall down. Great for tripods, light stands, or holding down cable. An essential for studio needs

                            Nothing wrong with the product. It's great. Easy to move, good design, and does its job well. But, I'm pretty sure you can make one for a fraction of the cost. I was just in a hurry and needed this item for an on-location shoot, used to weigh down the lighstand -- umbrellas in the wind act like sails! Good in a pinch, but if on a budget you could certainly make one (or several) for a fraction of the cost.

                                    These are pre-filled and factory sealed sandbags. They are ideal for studio work in that they seem to be well made and very durable but they can't be emptied for transporting.

                                    The 15 lb weight and size is ideal for the studio because they're easy to store, they work with large and small stands, they're inexpensive so we have lots of them and we just gang them together if we need more weight.

                                      Works like you expect a sandbag to work ... not many moving parts :).
                                      Extra straps give it good stability and easily beats self made sandbags. Definitely worth it. And let's me sleep better at night knowing that it is on the lightstand with a big strobe and a 72in softbox.

                                        It's just the right size for keeping stands from blowing over, yet small and portable enough not to be a burden.

                                              Iim using the sandbag to help stabilize my tripod while taking photo or videos! The sand bag take out any change of movement or shake! I like the style and make of the outer bag. Only isn't really an issue is caring around the sand bag!

                                                I use these bags to weigh down light stands to keep them from falling over. I have standard light stands (not C-Stands) and these bags are about the biggest that will fit through the legs. Weight is plenty to keep the stands steady even with a huge 7' Parabolic umbrella.

                                                Really nice high quality bag pre filled! I use it with my impact c stands on location and in the studio just for a little extra comfort knowing my equipment will be sturdy!
