No zipper like shown and too expensive

Does what its supposed to do. Having the zipper instead of velcro seems more quality for some reason and it is what is shown in the photo. The vest guy told me 10 lbs of buckweat would do it.. stuff is pretty expensive for a bean bag thats already over priced so didnt exactly want left overs. Well 5 lbs would have been more than enough. I had it packed hard a rock at first and had to take out quite a bit after finding what worked well. I asked the owner thinking he would know the amount for this. 10 lbs was way over kill. Maybe just get makeshift with it before ending up spending more than $100 all in. If you have alot of plastic grocery bag laying around that would work too

Love this one....vs MOVO

I originally ordered the 25 dollar MOVO bean bag instead of this due to its cost witch seems very high in my opinion. And due to the little use it will get. The day the MOVO arrived i was so disappointed in the cheap material and feel and the fact that it arrived damaged, i ordered this vest guy bean bag minutes later. This one is of much higher quality and feels solid and i have no concerns using it. In my opinion it is over priced for what it is but quality cost. F.Y.I i filled it with 20 lbs of dry pinto beans, works great.

Originally ordered a brown but after two months I got black

I ordered a brown camera support in September. I got a note saying it was on back order and after two months and a few phone calls between the vendor and B&H I got a black version. I wish it would have came with some insightful information like how much volume is required to fill the camera support or how much weight each option is (ie rice vs buckwheat hulls).

No zipper closure as shown

Not the same design as shown in the product photo on website. The one in the image shows a zipper closure, the one I got has a Velcro closure...no zipper. I will see if the Velcro works on my trip and if it doesn’t do the job I am going to return it.

This bean bag a winner

I bought this bean bag to replace Grizzy bean bag I bought several years ago from B & H. I liked the Grizzly but I love the Vest Guy large bean bag. It is longer and stays better on my auto window and the top surface is larger and better stabilizes my camera and long telephoto lens.

Great support

I tend to do a lot of wildlife photos with the majority being Bald Eagles where I wont necessarily get out of my car much, so this gives me a nice rest for my large lens setup.  My only complaint on it is that it ships empty and I had a hard time finding a product to fill it with.  Everyone recommended buckwheat hulls but I found out that they are hard to find in my area.  So after spending a few days online searching I finally decided to go with cracked corn from the feed store.  My other complaint about it was trying to find out how much filler it can hold, which took me about 2 trips to the feed store for 3 bags total.  The other suggestion I was given was to use feathers for filling so I may switch to that this summer and see how that works.

Can you mount a camera/lens or gimbal directly to the bean bag? Or is there a screwmount. The picture do not look like there is one. Does the camera just rest on the support?
Asked by: Julie
It's a bean bag ( that you need to supply the fill for) so there is no screw mount. I rest either my camera -but mostly my long lens on it from the car door. Works great.

What is the approximate volume of the large bag?

What is the approximate volume of the large bag?
Asked by: Joseph
The manufacture does not list how much it takes to fill it. The large version you listed exterior is 7" wide x 9" long x 9" tall. So it is not a lot to fill it.

once the bag is resting on the car windowsill, how much height is there to rest the bag on? In other words, how tall if the bag from the V opening to the top where I will rest my camera?
Asked by: Nancy
The bag is 9 inches tall and the V opening appears to go right to about the middle of the bag. You should expect to get around 4-5 inches from that opening.

question

What is the expected weight of this bean bag when it's filled and if I take it (empty) on a flight to Denver, is it easy enough to find the right ingredients to fill it there? Approximately how many pounds of rice, beans, etc. does it take to fill this large bag versus the smaller model?
Asked by: Anonymous
About six pounds of sunflower seeds.
