First off, I mixed play sand and general purpose sand to get the best density possible, and tamped it for several minutes after each 50lb addition. Still, the liner inside wouldn't close at the top after 290lbs of sand. I didn't use both bags separately because i wanted one solid bag, like what is pictured for WSM, etc. I ended up using duct tape to cover the top, tucking the ends down between the liner and canvas outer. I was still able to close the drawstring at the top completely with more room left, though. The canvas bag itself will easily hold 300+lbs of you actually pack/tamp the sand.
Capacity aside, the closing mechanism could be updated. I played with the 150lb Rogue ball-shaped bag my wife was loading, and felt that their zipper/velcro closure was superior for making the bag usable. There's no tuft of canvas and plastic at the top to work around.
Overall, at half the price of the 150+lb Rogue units, this is a great deal, and after running around with it and dropping it over a 60" bar onto concrete a couple dozen times loaded near its max, I think it'll last a long time. I just think it could be improved.
6 month update****
Bag still holds strong, it has been dragged, tossed, washed, carried, loaded , etc
Almost feel like buying another one if they were cheaper
* 1 Year update
- Bag still in good condition, its hard to justify 80$ for a bag but when you buy this you'll have endless posibilities when it comes to strongman training or just getting fit.

If you want to save even more money just go to a military surplus store and buy a duffel bag with some sand bags. That's the only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5. Also, I don't like the large sandbags that come with it. Too much sand not evenly dispersed but I could see the usefulness of them once you get up to 225 lbs.. I wish I would've bought a pack of several smaller sandbags online since the surplus store marks them up severely. I also like being able to more finely tune the weight with the smaller sandbags for more difficult exercises such as the overhead squat.
I will finish up and say that the bearhug walk with a lot of weight is one of the best core and wrist exercises I've ever used.
The first night I filled one of the liners with 60lbs of multi-purpose sand (more dense than play sand) and the other one with 120lbs. 60lbs is good for a lot of movements/swings, 120lbs starts to get quite heavy to carry around/press, and both liners together (180lbs) was a little ridiculous. Okay--a LOT ridiculous! I'll admit it. It felt so much heavier than expected that I could barely manage to pick it up worth anything. To give a little context, last year I was throwing around a 55 gallon steel drum with over 100lbs of water sloshing around inside it.
Looks like it'll take longer than I thought to start working with it's full capacity of 300lbs.
