Naturescapes NSN-NS6903 overview

Support your camera with up to a 600mm f/4 or 800mm f/5.6 lens using the SkimmerSack II Beanbag from Naturescapes. The SkimmerSack's transformable design allows it to be used in a variety of ways. When fully filled, the beanbag can act as a bi-pod stand to support the barrel of your lens on its rounded top.

Flipped upside down the bag's U-shaped area between the two legs can cradle a lens to allow for easy panning and switching to 90° portrait orientation. When the bag is filled to 40% the legs can fold under the rest of the bag to make a pancake-type beanbag support. The SkimmerSack II can be used with the Ground Pod II to add a tripod head or clamp. Non-slip Toughtek fabric on the inside of the U-shaped legs keeps the beanbag from moving when used as a window mount on a car or truck door.

All seams double stitched with nylon thread for added strength, stress areas stitched at least 5 times
Durable waterproof urethane-coated 500 denier DuPont Cordura nylon
Large zippered opening with protective flap for easy secure filling
Buckle straps at each end of the legs for tying the bag down to door handles or safari roof rack
Sewn-in handles on each side which may be used for tie-downs or to secure the Skimmer using a 3" climber's clip attached to the Skimmer's carrying tab
The beanbag ships empty and must be filled by the customer

    Naturescapes NSN-NS6903 reviews

    SkimmerSack II Beanbag is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be better Purchased this after reading reviews of similar bags. Was not a lot of info on this one but the price was better than some of the comparable bags. The stitching in some areas does not seem adequate. The drawstring on the zipper needs to be a heavier cording rather than the cheap thin piece of thread used (what a joke). The sewn in straps on the leg bottoms do not need the plastic buckles attached. They run the risk of scratching your vehicle. The non slip surface on bottom seems to work well. For as little as i may need to use this to photograph from my vehicle it be fine. But if i, or someone i knew was handy with sewing i would go that route instead. All these bean bags are way overpriced for the cost of production. They sell nice camera bags for the same price as some of these beanbags and they have way more quality stitchwork and padding involved in making them.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's OK, I suppose The product is used for bracing a camera with a long tele lens to ensure stability. For use, it must be filled with dried beans, styrofoam beads or plastic pellets. I chose the plastic pellets which I purchased from Hobby Lobby, which when the bag was filled, cost an additional $, making my total cost for the product to be about $. In retrospect, I'm not sure I made a wise choice. However, the bag is easy transported by the two sewn-in handles.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very handy for steading a long lens I frequently use this product to allow me to have a steady rest for those long telephoto shots. When filled with plastic beads or dried beans, it can be shaped for a steady rest.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best compact tri-pod around Fill this bag with Rice, Beans etc. use this where a regular tri or mono pod will not work. especially from the car or tight spots. love the weight, the fabric and overall many uses for this beanbag. The only con- first time users, check with the manufacture on what to fill it with, since it come unfilled and no instructions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from rough and rugged easy to transport on the trail and not that heavy. I have the 800 f/5.6 and it is very easy to use with that lens. wish they would make a mossy woods version!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bean bag Holds my big sense and works great for camera with standard lens.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless - did not even last a day I bought one and received it about 2 weeks before an international trip that was 2 weeks long. The bag broke at one of the seams at the bottom and I could not fill it again. By the time I got back from my trip, the 30day return policy from B&H had expired and I am left with a useless piece adorning my garage.
