More Info

The SkimmerSack Beanbag from NatureScapes is an extremely flexible and durable beanbag-style equipment support capable of endless shooting possibilities. It was originally designed to be used as a support for shooting from a car window opening. But with a unique "U" shaped design, the SkimmerSack can be used on any surface and almost any shooting scenario. Its construction allows you to fill it with a variety of materials such as beans, sunflower seeds or even plastic marbles. By adjusting the amount of fill, the SkimmerSack can be transformed for a variety of uses and the possibilities are endless simply by varying quantities of fill.

The SkimmerSack has a unique shaped design and can be positioned on top of any surface and adjusted to a multitude of configurations.
First ever "U" shaped bag with unique round-top design for use alone, or matched perfectly with the Skimmer Ground Pod II placed on top.
For use with any lens and camera combination from wide angle up to a 600mm f/4 or 800mm f/5.6.
Continuous non-skid Toughtek fabric inside of the legs for non slip grip on car doors.
Highly contoured design allows less fill than other bags - weighs only 8 pounds when full using whole sunflower seeds.
Large zippered opening with protective flap for easy secure filling.
All seams are double stitched for extra strength - stress areas stitched at least 5 times. The SkimmerSack is extremely durable - most others bean bags are made of cheaper nylon "pack cloth" or cotton canvas materials and employ only single stitching methods.
Hook and loop straps at each end of the "legs" for tying the bag down to door handles or safari roof racks.
Sewn in handles on each side - may be used for tie downs or to secure the Skimmer Ground Pod II (optional) using a 3" climber's clip attached to the Skimmer's carrying tab.
When used with the optional Skimmer Ground Pod II you can use with any ballhead, Gimbal head or simply install a Wimberley C-10 quick release plate for the lowest profile option. Riser blocks may also be used to fine tune your shooting height.
Basic Fill Guidelines:
  • With 70 - 90% fill you can place it over a car door and shoot with a lens alone or with the use of a Skimmer II Ground Pod (not included) on top. It can also be used upside down.
  • With 40% fill the "legs" can be folded under making a flatter "pancake" style beanbag for use with smaller lenses or for a lower profile.
  • With 70-80% fill the "legs" can be spread out and placed on top of a car or in between the rails of a safari vehicle - leaving the round surface available for cradling your lens or placing the Skimmer II on top.
