      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

        These sandbags are exactly what you would expect for the price. I've had my first for more than a year now and it's held up plenty fine.

            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'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.

                              Very sandbag-ish. Saddle-like in application. Weighty.

                              There is little to be said about a sandbag. It's a bag full of sand. Heavy

                                It's so nice to get this loaded up with sand! I hate having to go out and buy a huge bag of sand to fill it. I usually end up wasting so much with a lack of storage space in NYC. Perfect strong, durable bag!

                                    My umbrellas hit the ground in a very light wind before I purchased them. To avoid risking my speedlights I had to switch to on camera flash. No more! I now have one for each stand and would not consider leaving home without them.

                                              I use these on the base of my light stands. I like the handle options as well.
