    I saw this at a camera show and wanted it. If is big enough to keep my normal bag off the ground while adding stability and small enough to leave attached without getting in the way while reducing the tripod.

    I use this on my tripods during DLSR video production, studio shoots, or landscape photography. Overall I am happy with it. I was a little surprised byu the size, and the construction of the "pouch" is a little awkward. The ouch is like an upside down cone, so there is no flat base to it. I find the weights I have dont sit at the bottom, but rather kind of sit on the sides. It is easy to use and takes up no space and weighs nothing! I take it everywhere even if Im not planning on using it

            Surprisingly useful at being both a weight holder for the tripod but also at holding those things you only need to put down for a second.

                  Comments about Vanguard SB-100 Stone Bag:

                  I bought this attachment mostly to use as a convenient "shelf" to put odds and ends on while shooting from a 9-1/2 lb. tripod that rarely requires extra stabilization. When I am using several lenses plus ND and/or Grad ND filters I find the filters and their holders and step-up rings need to be kept accessible, someplace other than in my camera bag, or they get in the way. 4x6" filters are too bulky for most pockets but this "shelf" works great. I can quickly return a filter to it's case and select another if need be. Otherwise it becomes a juggling act and dropping just one filter would be very costly. This system only works when I am shooting from my big tripod that, ironically, requires no stabilization and only when I am not moving around much between shots. While I suspect it would work OK as intended, all my tripods have center column hooks for stabilizing weights if needed. None, however, has a convenient shelf!

                    I got this product because I have a set of Gitzo carbon fiber sticks and while I like how light they are, occasionally I need a heavier base. I also like having a place to put my phone, the lens cap, etc. I don't know how well this will hold up to wear and tear yet but I am going to paint the edge black so I don't have the orange showing up in reflections.

                        Extremely useful accessory. Very sturdy yet unobtrusive. Maybe a little shallow, but it works for me. A permanent fixture in my bag of tricks. I use it all the time.

                          This is a great product and one that should be used by all photographers on their tripods. I was recently in Canyon de Chelly and experienced high winds while photographing the sunset over the canyon. I took my Nikon D800 off of my Vanguard tripod and was putting it away when a severe gust blew over my tripod. Unfortunately, I had not attached the SB-100 Stone Bag to it. Fortunately, the tripod suffered no real damage. Learned my lesson, and now I leave it on the tripod all of the time. If already attached, it only takes a minute to put a rock in it to stabilize it. Lucky that I had already removed my camera before the gust came.

                            Works very well as both a weight bag on location or as a handy "shelf" for camera accessories. I leave mine attached to my tripod, as it easily folds, still attached to my tripod. It is very compact and cleans easily.

                              This product is a great tool to have when shooting video/landscape photography. I purchased it as a way to add weight/stability to my lightweight tripod. I just grab anything nearby that has some weight to it and put it in the bag (rocks, camera bag, etc) and I have instant stability for taking long exposure photographs or use with my fluid head for taking video. Best of all I don't have to take it off to fold up the tripod and move on to the next thing.

                                  The Stone Bag is a no brainer. Takes little room in the gear bag and fits nicely on my Monfrotto CF tripod.

                                  Keep it in a baggy after use, even if you shake it off it could introduce dust and sand into the gear bag.

                                  I do a lot of night weather photography. High ISO, mirror lockup, and remote controls are worthless if your tripod is shaking. Hanging a gear bag from the center pole is OK if the air is still. The stone bag can be used low and can be tight so wind won't shake it. This is also a great way to protect expensive gear from taking fall from wind or a bump.

                                      Very simple design, for that I gave a 4 stars. We have got to be careful because it is a little shallow so stuff can drop off the support.

                                      I use this on my tripods during DLSR video production, studio shoots, or landscape photography. Overall I am happy with it. I was a little surprised byu the size, and the construction of the "pouch" is a little awkward. The ouch is like an upside down cone, so there is no flat base to it. I find the weights I have dont sit at the bottom, but rather kind of sit on the sides. It is easy to use and takes up no space and weighs nothing! I take it everywhere even if Im not planning on using it

                                        I saw this at a camera show and wanted it. If is big enough to keep my normal bag off the ground while adding stability and small enough to leave attached without getting in the way while reducing the tripod.

                                            On a recent trip to Colorado I had to travel as light as possible and could not drag along my heavy tripod nor hike up over 12,000 ft. with it. The stone bag was a great solution to a lighter weight tripod.
