        99% of the photos I shoot are outdoors, I use the bags for my remote flashes on umbrella stands. I like the orange color they are easy to see so I don't end up walking off and leaving them. Very durable also.

          I live by the ocean, so on a family beach trip I filled up my sand bags. They are easy to fill, solid construction. I don't know if I filled them with 15 pounds of sand, but they work great to stabilize my RRS 24L tripod and on the legs of my light stands.

          B&H had these available for me when I needed them most. Easy to fill double zippered pouches with strong double stitched carrying handles. These are high quality and a great price. I never shop anywhere else!

              It's a sandbag, it does an amazing job of containing sand, being heavy, and being bright orange.

              The zippers are a bit fiddly to close once filled with sand, but other than that it does what it's supposed to.

                    Heavy-duty fabric and zippers make these a keeper. I used pea gravel instead of expensive shot to fill them. A humble but necessary piece of gear.

                              I recently used my Sandbags on a family portrait shoot at a local park. We were shooting early morning and the wind was significent so I used 2 - 15lb sandbags on my Elinchron Strobe with a softbox. The softbosx was catching the wind and the sandbags kept it safe until the shoot was complete. These sandbags were clearly worth having.

                                  Heavy Cordura nylon. Orange color reduces trip hazard. Double zippers keep the contents from leaking out. Nevertheless, I used pea gravel rather than sand just to be on the safe side. Sand and cameras don't mix.

                                    The orange was perfect for a public meet & greet event with Miss USA. The orange kept the public from tripping on the umbrella stands.

                                      Comments about Impact Empty Saddle Sandbag - 15 lb (Orange):

                                      I needed a sandbag to secure my lightstands when I shoot weddings. I needed it big enough to keep my stands from falling over, but not so big and heavy that I'd have trouble carrying it around. This one seems like the best fit. The canvas is well made, and should last a lifetime. I like that it's bright orange, and easy to see in dim light. The straps are heavy duty.

                                          Not much to say about a sand bag. Seems to be well made. I like the double zippers. I put about 8# pea gravel in mine. Should work fine.

                                          Also like the safety orange color. Should help prevent tripping over light stand legs.

                                                I'm a video guy and the first purpose is safety - toss them on the base of a c-stand to prevent tipping; plus the orange is a safety marker on-set. We use them for steadying a camera on the ground, you can kneel on them and save your knees, use them to level things, easy to fill and re-fill as a counterbalance, or have your intern carry them around if they are bored. We have some 25# but what beasts; the 15# are easy to carry and store and double-up where you need to.

                                                    It's a sandbag... nicely made, double zippers, good value.
                                                    ...also comes in black.
