Exceptionally well-made and thoughtfully designed. I ordered pre-filled bags which was convenient. These are used to keep mic, light, and speaker stands from toppling over. These are the highest quality professional use sandbags I've seen.

My circular pre-filled bag arrived in great shape, looks good, is functional, and holds down my umbrella stand. Pre-sales support was prompt. I wish the website was more detailed with the exact dimensions all around.

I bought 8 of these sandbags for my two outdoor propane heat lamps. During the year, they had both crashed down and got pretty bent. I considered all options for stablizing them and decided to use the sandbags. I have 3 on the neck area ( filled with sand) and 1 against the wheel base on each. We recently had huge winds of close to 60 mph and they did not move!!! So happy with them.
Proseasy to stack, simple looking, sturdy
Conshmmmm. well, if I need to move the lamps, I will need to remove them, since they weigh down the lamps. I don't have any cons to mention now.

Good quality, only holds 20 lbs
April 1, 2022
I opened up a 20 pound bag of sand, filled the sandbag until it was overflowing, and there is still sand left in the 20 pound bag. There's no way I could fit five more pounds in there. Other than that, it seems to be working well.
Merchant Response:Thanks for the review Andrew. This product has a volume of about .25 cubic feet. Standard sand weighs around 110 lbs per cubic foot. The density of material can differ based on its composition. It sounds like you used a lighter, fluffier material than traditional silica sand. You may consider changing out your material.

Amazing product and customer service
February 8, 2022
I live in an area where 70-75 mph winds are the norm during winter months. We routinely have items blowing around and damaged in our backyard. I came across the Sandbag Store and figured I would give it a try to weigh down several items in the backyard- I tried every other method previously. I can't emphasize enough how easy it was to purchase exactly what I needed. Before I received my first order, I called customer service with a question and it was like talking to a friend on the other end of the line. After receiving the items, they performed beyond expectations when the first winds hit. I quickly purchased more sandbags and have told everyone in the area about their products and service. Good work Sandbag Store!

We have 3 of these circular sandbags. In addition to using for our outdoor umbrellas, we had the idea to use at with our outdoor patio heaters. It prevents them from tipping over in the wind. We place it inside under the propane tank.

I am amazed at, and happy with, two things.....1) that such a great niche company as yours exists, and 2) that this product exists!! Thank you. It fit a unique application perfectly. Wish I had thought of your solutions myself when I retired from the military. Great job, and thank you!

An unsung necessity for film making
September 30, 2021
It is often commented in the world of film and perhaps still photography that regular (rectangular) sandbags are not a great fit for folding stands - as opposed to C-stands, which they do fine with. Well, folding stands are a basic item when a C-stand is overkill, and this is the sandbag for those folding stands. I don't think I have seen them discussed on any film making tutorials on YouTube. I can't remember how I found them. They are a great design for this purpose. They are not cheap for indie filmmakers like me but bear in mind that they take the place of a crew member holding down the stand, and that they will last more or less forever.
ProsA necessity for folding stands in the world of film and photography. Seems like they will last forever.
ConsA bit pricey it might seem, but they are a rugged, long-term investment and save time and labor.

Circular Sandbag
September 16, 2021
Recently I purchased a free standing plant stand with four arms. It blew over several times. I finally decided to research my options and came upon the Sandbag Store. They were extremely helpful when I called with questions. I ordered the circular sandbag, which fit perfectly around the base of the plant stand and it never fell over again.
ProsThe Sandbag Store is is very helpful. Delivery was also prompt.

I purchased two sandbags several years ago to hold down two sturdy tables on my upper deck in windy NC. Filled each with about 25 lbs. of sand and they do a great job. They do fade in the sun but not really an issue for me. I recently bought two more of the same bags to give even more support to my tables when the wind is very strong. I would recommend these bags and would buy them again as needed.
Prossturdy. Easily carried with handles.
ConsSome fading after years in the sun but still holding up under NC weather.
Great Product
August 25, 2021
I have purchase 3 of these bags. They are ez to handle, rugged material and a great shape that just blends in with the base.( It only took me 4-5 tumbled over broken umbrellas to find this product.Ÿ€™€) Plus the company "HAS" customer service which seems rare the days.

Just what I needed.
August 13, 2021
I have a lovely rooftop deck over my loft but it is sweltering in the summertime. It’s also quite breezy up there and no umbrella stands we’re doing the trick to keep my shade from flying away. I filled two of these sandbags up and haven’t had a problem since. And they are much better than a ridiculously large umbrella base that takes up 1/2 the deck! They have been out in the beating down sun and rain for the past 3 months and are holding up very well! Highly recommend these!
ProsSturdy. Nice buckle to keep them in place.
ConsDifficult to buckle when they are full of sand.

I just ordered a second pair if these with UV covers. We periodically get a lot of wind and would have to run outside and remove our umbrellas from the base or else they would blow over, damaging the umbrella. We put two round bags on one umbrella and 50 lbs of playground sand (Home Depot) filled both. Super easy to fill and they are hardly noticeable on the black umbrella stand. And they arrived very quickly.
ProsEasy to fill, well made and they work!

I got three of these for art- and card-display spinners for my pop-up craft booth. They are the BEST. I brag about them to every other vendor who stops by. They are so well made and beautiful and FUNCTIONAL. High winds? No problem. Toddlers spinning the racks unsupervised? No problem. I can't believe I waited this long to find this product. I love them so much. You pay for quality, and they are SO worth it.
ProsWell made Beautiful Functional Have a handle American made Sturdy Holds a great amount of sand
ConsNo cons

The best quality ever. Bought two works 100%. My daughter also bought two, she can't believe how easy it is to fill with the zip bags. Such a great idea with zip bags. I would recommend these round sand bags weights for your patio.

Who knew you could buy the perfect size sandbags for outdoor heating lamps and umbrella bases? We bought 2 circular sandbags for each of our heating lamps and umbrella bases and they haven't moved AT ALL even on the windiest days with strong ocean breezes coming through the patio.
ProsEasy to fill, sand stays enclosed, and the perfect fit!

Our patio table flipped over one windy day despite having a weighted base. I found this already filled bag, and it was exactly what we needed at a great price. Shipping was fast, too. I’m not worried about our table flipping anymore.

Awesome Sandbag
February 4, 2021
After countless searches looking for something to weigh down my deck umbrella, I came across these circular sandbags. Ended up buying 2 and I have to say they do an excellent job keeping my umbrella and stand firmly on my deck. Pretty easy to fill and the latch mechanism makes it so easy to keep together. I've only owned them for a few months but the material that they're made of, I will say is going to last for quite some time. Very happy with my purchase. 5 stars!!!
ProsHeavy Duty Easy to Fill Does the Job

Perfect fit and weight!
February 3, 2021
These circular sandbags are a perfect fit and weight for our outdoor patio tables with umbrellas. We had been having problems with the tables and chairs being blown around (even without the umbrellas) by our 30-50 mph winds. This last weekend the tables with furled down umbrellas stayed put, while the steel chairs were all over. We have had these in service a year now with pea-sized gravel and they are holding up great.
ProsHeavy duty. Clip tightly around the table post. Weathering well so far.
ConsNone discovered.

We researched many companies and found the Sandbag Store to purchase from as you are made in America. As a result, we are extremely happy with our circular sandbags for our outdoor umbrella stands. We had to double up on them as it can get windy but so worth the cost to be assured of the quality and effectiveness of the sandbags. Highly recommended.
ProsGood quality and size.
ConsNot really. I suggest when you buy two sandbags, there is a slight discount.

Excellent weight for our umbrellas
February 2, 2021
I ordered five of these circular sandbags to hold our umbrellas in gusty wind. Although strong wind can push the umbrellas down with the sandbags in place, most of the time these handy weights do the trick! They are hardly noticeable on top of the stand. I filled them with pebbles instead of sand to make filling a snap. I love the handle and buckle. I have recommended these to a couple people. Shipping was free and fast! Made in the USA!

Surround Speaker Stand Ballast
February 2, 2021
Okay, so I took the pea-gravel approach. A couple of bags at the local hardware store, empty them out into a tub and do a couple of rinse runs to wash the gravel clean, then use a scoop to fill the bags - 1 person job, no problem! Bags hold speaker stands solidly in place - stands were rated for up-to 8lb speakers, but I had tipping problems which the bags solved. The stands are pocketed into corner spaces so the bags aren't really seen - just forgotten in place. In sum, these bags did EXACTLY what I wanted them to do.

Great for stabilizing plant stands
February 2, 2021
The circular sand bags worked perfectly for weighting down our 6’ tall solid steel plant stands. Despite their weight and extra plate steel on the base of the stands, they kept blowing over when loaded with a hanging basket of plants. The plants made the stands top-heavy and when it got windy on our back deck the plant and stand would blow over. Your sandbags provided sufficient mass in the right place to solve the problem.
ProsEasy to work with, durable material, good workmanship.
ConsThe 14? diameter was a couple of inches less than what I would have preferred simply for aesthetic purposes. The base of our plant stands is made of welded steel plate in the shape of a ?+? sign and measures 16? long on each of the cross members. Having some additional size options might have allowed me to fully cover the bases, but it wasn?t a problem structurally and the bags did their jobs which was really the most important thing to me

I laughed at my wife when she wanted me to buy these to hold our patio table with umbrella down during the fierce Santa Ana winds here in Los Angeles. However, these bags are a sweet stylish black that adds a nice touch and has kept my table landlocked. These bags are great! I even apologized to my wife for laughing at her. Great and affordable product AND WE GOT THEM QUICKLY!!!

Quality product
February 1, 2021
Purchased 3 circular sandbags for outdoor curtain posts with rods that were prone to tipping in strong winds. Product is well made with quality materials and holds a substantial amount of sand (filled into 1 gallon zip lock freezer bags). Easy to handle and secure, and best of all, no more tipping over.
ProsCompact, easy to handle and store.
ConsIf left out in direct sunlight, UV protection needs to be applied to prevent discoloration.

Used them as weights for a punching bag. Work perfectly. Very well made and the handle makes it easy to carry. My only suggestion would be that the clip could be a little stronger.

These bags are durable! They faded in the sun, but who cares? We’ve pushed them to their limit (filled too full, tossed around, smashed them up against rough surfaces) and they still zip and hold the sand no problem. Highly recommend. Would buy again.

Weights for punching bag

I needed to add weights to an everlast stand up punching bag. Barbell weights are hard to come by and expensive. These sandbags were an ideal alternative. Prompt shipping and were filled as requested. They fit perfectly on the pegs

These little darlin's are the perfect thing for stand alone umbrellas. Nice high quality, heavy duty product that looks good while at work. It was engineered for this purpose and we ended up putting two on each of our stand up umbrellas and they don't budge in the breeze...and we get some breezes here in Arizona. Great product, thank you.
