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

        Filled these with sand. I also like to use steel shot, but it gets pricey. Hard to get a full load of sand into them because of the double zipper. But the double zipper keeps them from leaking. Good for general stand stabilization, weighting a tripod, holding a C-Stand down. You need these.

            Used to weight down light stands. Filled pint size freezer bags with pea gravel and inserted them in the zipped pouches. Works as it should. Stand felt very secure with one bag.

            Great small sand bag. Holds your lighter things in place. I would buy a couple of these and a couple of the 27lb ones. Great investment.

            These Hold It Down

            By Chip

            from St Joseph, MO

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

            Fall will soon be here and the request for portraits done under the fall foliage are on the rise. This might require additional lighting and diffusers. Having your equipment secure to the ground is is must. The 15 lb. bags I ordered are perfect and I have already used them twice. The double zipper and flap secures the sand I did the bag with no spillage. The bright orange makes these bags easy to see and the attached handle make carrying them a breeze. These bags are not just for outdoor use - it is always nice to have you studio lighting secure from any accidental bumps.

            Very happy with the Inpact Empty Saddle Sandbag -15 lb.

              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.

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

                                    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.

                                          These bags will work fine. The double zippers will keep the sand in and the quality seems good

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

                                            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.
