      Strong construction, double insulated to minimize risk of leak. I just needed a few pounds to keep my LED lights from tipping over but I needed to keep my suitcase under 50lbs. Solution? Take out some sand. The velcro and snaps on the handle are a nice touch and give more options for attaching to different kinds of stands.

        Comments about Giottos Standard Large Sandbag 4.4 lb:

        I bought 3 of these sandbags to steady my light stands on location. They are very well made and the outer casing is very sturdy. I also like the inner liner bag that keeps the sand from spilling out. The best part is that I was able to get 6 pounds of sand into the 4.4 pound bag.

            The bag is decent for its price. Holds two tripods, umbrellas, small reflectors and more with ease. could have more pockets for smaller accesories but otherwise its a strong bag

              I use the to hold down light stands and especially the reflector holding arm which easily tips if extended at all. sand or led was recommended but we had bags of marble sized rocks and I used those and they work great and heavier than dry sand.

                  Comments about Giottos Standard Large Sandbag 4.4 lb:

                  I bought a few sandbags to compare features. I like this brand best. I also bought the larger version, which is also nice.
                  FWIW, I wanted a compact, heavy weight, so I loaded the bags with lead shot instead of sand. This size is now a 15lb bag.
                  The velcro straps are thoughtfully arranged, and appear to be well made. I expect to use this one more than the others.

                    I use this with a lightweight lightstand for strobist lighting with a small umbrella.

                    I recommend using 2 with an umbrella or small softbox when outside to foil mother natures breezes.
