    Comments about Saddle Sandbag - 15 lb (Black Cordura):

    It's a bag that has sand in it and it weighs 15 pounds.

    I do like the handles. On one side there is a handle that goes across the fold in the middle of the sandbag, on the other side the handle goes the opposite and is attached to the opposing ends of the sandbag which could come in very hand to productions on the move.

    The bag seems very durable and is the best priced bag around.

              These sandbags are decently priced and they will last a long time if you take care of them. They have the two different hand straps so there's multiple ways to hold equipment down.

                  I have purchased the 15 lb Saddle Sandbag by Impact. I use it for portrait sessions to hold down my light stand with an Impact 60 inch convertible umbrella and a Canon 600EX-RT Speedlite. Without the sandbag the stand is unstable, with the sandbag I can do a portrait shoot without having to worry about my stand falling over. The Saddle Sandbag was reasonably priced.

                        I have had a couple of incidents of the wind knocking down my stands. No longer! I chose the orange so that people will be more likely to notice them. I own 9 bags and expect they will be going strong years from now.

                              This is the first saddle sandbags that I have bought. I have used others from the school at which I took some classes. These seem to be of comparable quality. I like the bright orange color to catch the bag (and light stand base) easily in my periphery vision.

                                Nice sandbags, never had any before, but have been wanting to have something to hold down when i am on shoots alone. Works perfect. Not too heavy that I can't hold it around

                                      Bought these for light stands that hold my Profoto B1's. Unless you are in severe wind with large umbrellas these are heavy enough to stabilize your lightstand. Of course you should always have someone nearby in case a strong wind comes especially with heavier and expensive units on your stand.

                                        I ordered this one by mistake. I wanted the one without the sand. So pay attention to that, if you use your own weights (I use my SCUBA weights..)
                                        Strong, does the job

                                        These are perfect for my tall light stands. They are heavy enough to keep them steady, but light enough to carry with me.

                                              I've never seen such a sand bag! It's heavy and gravity works very well on it!

                                                    I'm very satisfied with these sand bags. Excellent quality and comes pre filled. Use them to hold my Impact Pro light stand in place. Does an excellent job.
                                                    Highly recommend.
