Perfect for Musical Equipment
September 15, 2019
I ordered a handful of 10-pound bags to help stabilize some of my drum equipment; even at the lighter weight, they serve as wonderful, discrete pedal-stops, and they do a fantastic job of weighing down tom, snare, and cymbal stands in order to not only keep the elements in place, but also reduce shakiness upon contact. The variety of color options was also a great feature, as I was able to match the look of the sandbags to the design of my drum rug. I certainly plan to purchase more of this item in the future, and I would highly recommend the product to anyone who might be looking into them.

Quality Sandbags
July 11, 2019
The sandbags are better than I expected. I use them to secure a hot tub cover so they sit in the direct sun and are exposed to all weather, along with chemically treated water occasionally. The fabric has not faded, no dye has run onto my cover, and no sand has leaked out - all concerns I had before ordering. The handle makes them extremely easy to move on and off. Very well made!
ProsMade with quality materials. Shipping was extremely fast.

Solved my problem
July 3, 2019
I own an RV and we have sewer connections to empty gray water and black water from our holding tanks. The connections are not always the best fit or tight enough to prevent accidental spills. The Sandbag Saddlebags worked perfectly, creating a great seal. So very satisfied and will tell other RV campers about this great RV solution.
ProsHandle makes for easy carrying Super heavy duty material Very inexpensive

Bought one... then a bunch more
June 5, 2019
We use 25lb steel shot bags for video and stage work. They support light stands and set pieces. Having seen the competitors, I was intrigued by the price and the ability to customize with a different colored handle. We often rent additional equipment and I wanted our bags to look different from what showed up on a truck while still remaining largely black. We went with black bags and a colored handle. They still don't stand out if located in a shot but we know the difference between ours and anyone else's. When the first bag showed up we put it through the paces and couldn't bust it. We threw them in the air as high as we could and let them come crashing down to the ground... no problem. The first bag sold us and we immediately ordered more. We've had these in heavy use for about 3 years now and haven't had a single bag disappoint us yet.
Pros- Highly Durable - Steel shot is more expensive but makes the bag smaller and is totally worth it
Cons- We have to tell people where we bought them because they want their own - Other departments want to take them

Well made saddle bag sandbags
April 17, 2019
We use these sand saddlebags for job task evaluations. We have a candidate to lift either the sandbag or a box with the sandbags inside. The staff report they are very pleased with these new items. The handle is sturdy and easy to grip. The material is able to take the abuse of being tossed in and out of a wooden box. These have done so well that I have ordered several more in different weights for one of my outlying clinics. Thank you for the opportunity to purchase a well made item!

Who knew sandbags could be so exciting
February 25, 2019
We are an audio production company. We use 25# bags for a variety of things. I think we own at least 50. No one is careful with them, we treat them poorly and they still look like the day we bought them. I haven't had one leak, freeze or show any signs of dust from the inside of the bag. I did a ridiculous amount of research before we ordered these and I'm happy this was my choice every time they go out to a show.
Merchant Response:"Flexible Concrete with Handles" is both hilarious and awesome. Thanks for the great review.
ProsBasically they're flexible concrete with handles.

The Best Sandbags!
February 21, 2019
As a corporate photographer, my stuff gets tossed and beat up, and it has to work. I have other sandbags that leak like sieves, but not these. They are tough, are clearly well-made and they look good too. I will only be buying from the Sandbag Store, and I tell my other photographer friends and assistants to buy from these guys. Prices are very reasonable as well.

Saddle Sandbags- Just what we needed
February 9, 2019
These were perfect to replace our 30+ year old sand bags for our workshop. Since these are a saddle bag design it is easier to stack to keep weight on the front of the vehicle (on lift) when removing the engine transmission together from underneath. The exterior feels strong and secure- The bags are not overfilled.
ProsEasy to use and move-
ConsNone So far

We live at the beach where the winds can get very high at times. We hang the saddlebag sandbags over railings, or put them on the floor to prevent our doors from slamming into the railings and house. They are a very well made, came quickly, and you can't beat free shipping on 20 lbs of sand!

These are a lifesaver! They are durable and easily portable. The customer support at the Sandbag Store was very helpful. I run a theater program in a men's maximum security prison and I had some odd requests in terms of time and delivery. They are also so well constructed that they were allowed into the prison. Can't stuff any drugs into these puppies!

So, The Sandbag Store sandbags are a durable and well made product. THANK YOU. By the way for anybody reading this, I put 15# on a big light stand and modifier. In a big wind, it is NOT going to be enough. Two boys and/or one man was holding each of my two lightstands. It was fine until they let go and needed to be photographed. NOT THE SANDBAG'S fault!!! Will buy more, for sure!

Nice sandbags
October 27, 2018
I've only had them for a short time but they look well made. I'm in the film industry and bought the 20# saddle type bags. The fabric is slightly bigger/looser than other bags.
Merchant Response:Thanks for the feedback Chris! We do drop-test our bags and design them to shift as they take impact to limit seam bursting. As such, our bags do tend to be slightly larger (loosely filled) compared to other similar bags. This is the first time we have seen bag fill level listed as a negative trait and we will keep our eyes out for any further concerns regarding the looser filling level and adjust accordingly. Thank you again for taking the time to review your sandbags.
ProsGreat cost, free shipping, fast delivery.
ConsSlightly loose

I have been looking for sandbags for a specific purpose for over two years. These sandbags are very well made. The handle is a huge plus. We bought them to give some weight to a glass patio table that is exposed to strong winds. These sandbags with the heavy fabric and strong handles could not be better.

Well made and exactly as described
July 12, 2018
The sandbags we ordered as weights for an umbrella base that we use for swim meets were well made and exactly as described. With their durable handles, they allow us to move the umbrella and base to and from a storage shed without having to worry about dragging a heavy base because we can instead use three smaller (30 lb) bags that are easy to carry and put them on the top of the base.
ProsEasy to transport with sturdy handles. Arrived when and how expected. Were pre-filled so we didn't have to mess with buying sand and then filling each individual bag.
