Apex APEX-BEANBAG-M5 overview

  • 1Description

The Apex Bean Bag (Realtree Max-5) is a water-resistant sturdy bag that can support lenses up to 800mm, while shooting on safari or just from your backyard porch. The bean bag is designed to fit vehicles with windows 17" or higher, and it comes with a strap to secure it to a car door handle or beam. The strap can also be used as a carrying handle.

The bean bag can be inverted to provide stability on a flat surface by placing the telephoto lens between the bean bag legs, which are covered by a high-tack finish. The bag comes with an aluminum plate with an integrated 3/8"-16 threaded screw at the top, so a tripod or a gimbal head can be attached to it. The tripod plate can be removed from the bean bag when a tripod head is not in use and the bean bag is used in the more traditional manner. The bean bag has a fill zipper which is protected by a weather-resistant flap. With the fill zipper open you can fill the bag with any material. The bean bag has a large side pocket to store small items and an attachment loop to add a pouch or attach the bean bag to a belt. (The bean bag comes empty.)

An improvement over the Max-4, Realtree Max-5 camouflage includes more cattails, reeds, cane, twigs and leaves in the pattern to look very realistic and be able to blend into backgrounds such as marshes and open fields.

Apex APEX-BEANBAG-M5 reviews

Apex Bean Bag (Realtree Max-5) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Apex Beanbag in Kenai Fjord, Alaska IMHO,I found it to be an excellent product for supporting large telephoto lenses when tripods are not practical, like on a boat, stadium etc... Unlike the traditional beanbags, the Apex bean bag can accomodate a ballhead or gimbal head configuration, assisting the photographer with panning and tracking. The inverted U shape design and straps, allows the product to be drapped securely over a car door, fence, railing, bench. You can use any fillers to inflate the beanbag But seeds, rice, or beans as fillers can make this beanbag heavy. Personally, a combination of biodegradable packing peanuts and beans at the base legs permitted my beanbag to stay light, rigid and stable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convienent and versitle Saw this online and thought I'd try it out. After looking into fill materials to balance weight and stability i decided to use a combination of ground up corn cobs (pet bedding) mixed with fiber fill. This combo works very well, not too heavy 11lbs. Much lighter than rice or sunflower seeds, and just as stable. I don't empty it.I sprayed exterior with waterproofing as a preventative. Holds Wimberley head and 400mm lens with ease. I added velcro to one side to attach pouch with mounting plate. Keeps the pouch attached securely.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Empty Bag Be prepared for this bag to arrive empty. Filling it up is up to you.� $99 for an empty bean bag. You decide if it's worth it.
