These are very nice bags.

The ziploc bag was easy to fill with sand and the plastic bag easily slip into the double zipper saddlebag.

Up until now I've been buying sandbags at the camera store, pre-filled. Reason being that "pre-filled" (and fully sealed) bags just seemed so much easier! Buy it in 5, 15 or 25 lbs and it's ready to go.. no worrying about buying sand, filling it or dealing with the mess. I bought about half a dozen of these in different sizes before giving in and getting these (the same price, or less, than one of the pre-filled bags).

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.

I am in the event production biz. I bought 12 of these. after spending a considerable amount of time filling them up and double zipping them, I was pleased to see that the sand did not come out. However, I was not delighted to find that 25% of them had seams that failed. 3 of the 12 leaked sand right away. I have only used them for one job, so it remains to be seen if the others will break, or it is only these. I had to take pictures of the broken ones to get 4 more sent to me. To their credit, they are shipping 4 more when just 3 were broken. I have to say that for 25 pounders (these are 20 pounders), the cost is around $35 per piece (filled with sand) from local distributors, so for around $5 each + labor and sand, they are a great price, as long as the other ones don't start pulling apart. Another hint: after the first few bad ones, I started putting 1 gallon freezer bags inside the pockets. Of course after 20 to 50 jobs, I expect the plastic to fatigue and the bags to start leaking, but hey, your saving 70%

There's not a lot to say about a sandbag. These are quality made bags, however. There are a couple of features that I really like. One, there are double zippers for each compartment. The zippers are oriented opposite to one another. The makes material coming out of the compartment very unlikely. The other feature is the provision of two carrying straps, one on each side of the bag. So whether you decide to have the colored side or the black side of the bag visible, there's a carrying strap available. I filled the bags with lead ingots, averaging about 10 pounds per bag. The bags hold these with no hint of a strain on the material. I would highly recommend Steve Kaeser's bags. I had never heard of these bags before, and I stumbled upon the product. But in the future, when I need sandbags (although these may last for many years) I will definitely purchase his bags again.

These sandbags are good quality but have an inherent flaw. When they are full with 15-20lbs of sand, the stitching on the handles can tear. I solved this by putting a pop rivit (3/16 medium with backing washers) into each of the 4 corners where the handle attaches to the bags. To do this, you drill a hole through the material at each corner where the handle is attached to the saddle bags being careful not to drill into the sand-holding pouches. Insert a rivet in the hole and a rivet washer on the back of the rivet and crimp (you need a rivet tool). Pop rivit spindles break off when they are fully crimped. Now the handles are solidly attached and will not come off. This is the technology that made Levi Strauss famous for Levis!

Within seconds of opening the package I knew I was returning this. There were only 3 bags instead of the 4 advertised. Each one had some type of sewing defect. The worst one had only one side of the handle sewn on. That revealed the rusting metal plate down the spine. It was completely unusable. The stripes were coming off on the others.

Amazon was great with the return.

So these sandbags are good for starting photographers and someone needing a cheap bag that will last one light-use season. The seams are weak and will leak sand almost right away. Most professionals use bags that are prefilled and sewn shut so the bags can be tossed around when setting up/packing the truck. I thought I could get by with these (since they are much cheaper than studio sandbags) but my crew managed to break the zippers on two bags the first day. I am going to bite the bullet and buy "real" saddle sandbags elsewhere and toss these. Trying to save a buck ended up costing me more in the long run.
