3.0 out of 5 stars for the price?, January 3, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: PBL SANDBAGS HEAVYDUTY PHOTO VIDEO SADDLEBAG 4 BAGS HOLDS 20LBS OF SAND NEW Steve Kaeser Photogrphic Lighting & Accessories (Electronics)
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%

Using those freezer bags is a genius idea! And those super heavy duty freezer bags will probably last an amateur like me forever!

Thanks for the idea!

I got 4 of these for 9.79 free shipping from Jensen with a an online coupon(must spend 50.00 to get free ship) here on Amazon so I got 12 for about 30.00!
