Yes, you can in fact fill them with sand. Yes, they do in fact hold things in place. No they are no super durable. Sandbags used in professional situations have a tendency to get thrown around a little bit, and these just didn't hold up. One or two of them busted at the seam and started to leak sand over time. Most of them have been fine, but only because I'm super mindful of the tearing so treat them a little more gently. I'd just prefer to be able to treat them as roughly as the hardier sandbags I own.

Excellent product. I am using 3 of these sandbags, filled with pea gravel, to stablize a tripod and mast for a portable HF (shortwave) ham radio antenna. The mast extends up to 18 ft high, with 2 horizontal telescoping whip antenna elements at the top, spreading out as far as 27 ft from end to end. I've placed each of the 3 sandbags at the bottom, over one of the 3 lateral support arms at the tripod base (down close to where the legs of the tripod rest on the ground). This seems to be providing very solid support against the wind tipping over the structure. Except for very high wind situations, it seems to be sufficient.

The sandbag is made of very good, thick and sturdy material, and has both an outer and an inner zipper to keep the contents (sand or pea gravel) cleanly inside the bag. I placed a 1 gallon freezer-type plastic bag inside each of the 2 sides of the sandbag, and trowelled the pea gravel into the plastic bags. When both sides of the sandbag are filled with pea gravel, the sandbag weighs a little over 13 lbs. So the 3 sandbags on base of the tripod weigh a combined 40 lbs.

I've only had these sandbags a few weeks and I honestly can't understand some of the other reviews about poor stitching and sand pouring out. Generally I don't use sand but I did load this up just to see what the problem was, I couldn't find one. I suppose some got a few of bad ones. Since I only use sandbags at home I will use the 1 liter or 20 oz soda bottles filled with water and the top Krazy glued on, works great this way. I also don''t use them on booms, just on the light stand. I you get on e swing a bit on a boom the rig can become unstable. I do have some cast iron weights, such as Manfotto, but I also use ankle weights in a pinch. Wrap them around the boom and use a clamp the keep it from sliding, works really good that way. Anyway, these particular bags are a very good buy.

I received these a few weeks back, but finally got to use them today. I filled them with "play sand" purchased from Home Depot for $4, and placed the sand inside 1 gallon heavy duty ziplock bags. Each one is filled with 20lbs of sand, and there seems to be no risk for tearing or breakage.

Time will tell how they hold up, but so far they seem quality.

Pros - double zippers. Fill the bag with sand (I used play grade sand, less than $5 for 50 lbs), clean then zip the inner zipper, then zip the outer zipper for extra security. I gave the bags a good shake and they are dust free.

There are handle/straps on both interior and exterior of bags, nice and versatile.

For tripods, it'd be nice if there were rings located somewhere on the bag handle, to secure it to the tripod legs. A minor quibble.

I loaded 15 lbs of sand into each bag (about 7 lbs per saddle). Secured to tripod with bungie and rope.

The yellow/black stripes make them easy to see, therefore less easy to trip on. This was the key reason I went for these.

Excellent bags, excellent price!

This has been a very handy little weight, but remember to put something in it and don't be disappointed when it shows up NOT filled with sand. I found that peed gravel worked very well for weight material to fill the bag with rather than any sort of sand. Peed gravel are very small rounded rocks that compress well, weigh a lot and have no chance of leaking out of the bag. I think I bought a bag at Home Depot for $3 which had an ample amount of rocks to fill the sand bag. It is a good buy even though it is yet another sign of the demise of American industry by being made in China.

I bought several of these sandbags for my umbrella/flash stands, as I had already had a couple of close calls (both indoors and out). I buy most of my photography gear on Amazon, preferring to not pay studio supply prices even if that means a lesser product - I'm still only shooting semi-professionally (about half of my work is photography) and I couldn't justify over a hundred bucks for "proper" sandbags. I filled these up with about 5-6lbs of sand on each side - my light stands and umbrellas don't weight much and if I shoot outside I always add a little more.

PROS
- The material used is strong and seals in your filler very nicely
- Features a double zipper for extra secutiy
- Can be hung from the middle handle, or placed over the feet of a lightstand
- Yellow warning stripes are nicely visible

CONS
- Not the best workmanship (to be expected when this costs less than a trip to Starbucks)
- Not being pre-filled and sewn shut, there is leeway for spilling etc.

OVERALL
I have found the double zipper to be adequate, and as I already mentioned the fabric doesn't let any dust out. I would recommend using a coarser sand wherever possible, it's a lot easier to work with! Out of the four that I own, I have yet to see any zippers break, although from one of the other reviews I'm accepting it as a possibility! Overall for the price paid I am satisfied, and unless they start wearing out prematurely, Fancier may have just saved me over a hundred dollars. I will update this review if anything changes!
