Right off the bat, they've got some pros and cons.
+ Obvious pro is that you get 4 of them for the price of 1!
- Downside is that you need to buy sand / filler
+ Plus-side of that is that you can make these 2 lb bags, 5 lbs, 8 lbs, 15 lbs, etc.. youre not stuck with 20 lbs. Just add/remove weight to get to what you need (good for those times where you need a little counterweight but not 20lbs worth.. or you dont want to carry 80 lbs in sand around.
+ On the same side, you can fill them on location... Taking photos at the beach seems odd to carry around 80 lbs of filled sandbags when you can just fill it up there! The instructions also claim you can use other materials like rocks. I'd be a bit hesitant on the rocks/sharp objects as they could puncture the bag (and leak sand all over if you decide to re-fill it).
- The design isn't the prettiest.. its got a caution look which is cool, but blue and black? why not yellow and black?
+ The design is reversible.. flip it over and it's all black.
- The handle is very wide.. about 2 inches? Trying to squish that down to fit into a small carabiner isn't fun.
- The handle is also quite tight to the part of the bag it connects to (which also has a hard piece inside to keep it flat) , this makes it a little tougher/less comfortable to haul around, but not too bad.Read more ›
Amazon was great with the return.
There is NOT a handle on the black-only side of the bag. There is only a handle on the blue and black striped side. If they would have added grommets to secure the middle at the handle, and given it a handle on the black-only side - 5 stars. But for the price, it's hard to complain.
still like them, but they are cheap, so be careful. I made the mistake of treating one like a real sandbag and tossed it, it split right open on the seam and out came all the sand filling and went everywhere. I threw that one out. Lesson learned.
After having these on set a bunch, I am wishing more and more that I'd filled them with sand. I'll update again after I swap the filling.
Down to two bags now. They keep tearing open when you set them down. They are just cheap. But even if I buy a second set, I'm still ahead of the game if I'd bought into Matthews bags.

Essential. I used old dive weights and sand in ziplock bags. These are essential weighting our tripods. Use them to protect your gear from falling over and the people are nearby.Published 12 days ago by Jason
Cheap, but they seem to do the job. Zippers held up through initial filling.Published 12 days ago by BettyB
These are good and sturdy. I put rice in 2 grocery bags and then put it in the bags for weight. It's double zippered. It's possible that it could leak sand but I doubt it. Read morePublished 1 month ago by John
works great. instead of using sand i got some bag of rocks from dollar tree and 2 to 3 bags for each side does the trick for me.Published 1 month ago by twilite
