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

    I have a half dozen or so of these. Some years old and a few brand new. They never disappoint. I use them on a daily basis and have never had a break or a significant leak in any of my bags. Handles are firm enough that I would trust throwing them around.

                Good value but spotty quality

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

                I ordered 10 of these for the studio, and overall they do what they're supposed to and the fabric is appropriately thick. However, the stitching quality is spotty and several bags had loose seams and unraveling thread. If you're a DIY type it would be no problem to reinforce where necessary.

                If you're a quality fanatic, you might want to pass on these, but it's hard to deny the outstanding value with the current free shipping offer.

                    They're larger and heavier than I expected - as silly as that sounds, but they work great to hold down my reflector stand. They are a great size to sit over the legs to keep it steady. It's also pretty flexible/soft so I'm thinking they will be helpful to use in the bottom of buckets for my newborns.

                      These were super handy to have. We're about to purchase another 10 because we were so happy with the first 10. We are also looking into the heavier bags (20 lb, 35lb).

                      These are great to have on hand for any sort of field work with cameras. We were performing field work on a boat and we used these to anchor our camera equipment as well as supporting equipment.

                        Have a flimsy stand? Wind? Kids running around? Heavy load?
                        These help keep things in place.
                        Definitely worth the money!

                                This bag is of decent quality. The stitching, especially the center stitch separating the wings is not of the same quality that you would expect from a higher priced bag. That said, it is very hard to beat at this price point, and looks like will hold up just fine to normal moderate abuse. And the fact that this ships with free expedited shipping if your order is over $ boggles my mind in the best way.

                                    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.

                                            Came as described. Very durable, tightly woven, with many of years of service waiting. Love the orange too!

                                              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.
