Well made product
May 18, 2023
I purchased the bags to hold down a solarizing tarp. They are doing a fine job. They are well made and easy to fill. I purchased some playground sand from Home Depot. The velcro is super tight and keeps the sand from spilling.

The two strap handles are a nice touch.
April 11, 2023
I puchased the sandbags more to keep cold air from flowing into the base of a very large fiberglass enclosure that covers a well, electric panel, and large water filter outside my home than flood water.
  • Light weight and flexible. Easy to position around irregular shapes.
  • Traditional sandbags are easily stacked to create high and stable barriers. Narrow cylindrical tubes, if stacked, are likely neither. One is better than the other depending on job requirements.

Worked well as advertised!
April 10, 2023
Although having to order of 10 when I only needed one wasn't desireable, the bag is of high quality material and well designed for the purpose I had in mind. It worked great during what was a record rainy season for our state.

36" Tube Sandbags
March 28, 2023
I ordered the 36" Tube Sandbags (black), Thursday March 23rd at 9:00 pm. They were delivered Saturday March 25th by 10:00 am. I purchased these to "recycle" the sand from the 60lb sand tubes I use for weight in my Pick up truck during the winter. Those tubes fall apart after one or two seasons. I don't think that will happen with these. Very well made product! It would be nice if they held a little more sand but the lighter weight combined with the carry handles make them easier to load and unload from my truck and 10 of them should be plenty for traction. Made in USA. Fast delivery and quality you can see and feel.
  • Well made, fast shipping and made in USA.
  • For my purpose I would like to see the tubes made wider to hold more sand but a 10 pack should still be plenty of weight.

Recycle bin weights
June 10, 2022
This a been a wonderful purchase for me to weight down 96 gallon receptacles for curbside recycle service in West Texas winds. The product quality is great and would recommend any to purchase American made sand bags that will last. However, the customer service is over the top. In a post Covid most companies have an at best below average support. The Sandbag Store is the standard that all companies should follow.
  • Great quality products.
  • Top class customer service
  • Thanks for the kind words Ryan!

Tube sandbag
June 4, 2022
It’s been so windy in SD that I needed something to place over the feet on my 2x4 boards, which I put my letters and graphics into, to keep it from tipping over. These tube bag are easy to fill, carry, and store.

very well made and do the job
January 20, 2022
My garage floor and driveway are basically on the same plane. When we get heavy rain, the water finds its way into the garage. I use the bags as a temp dyke and it does the job. When the rain is over I can easily move to the bags. They have handles. Also, the bags seem to be waterproof. I've had for over a year and never had to replace the sand. I live in the northeast and they are flexible even in the cold weather.

LOVE these sand bags
October 26, 2021
We bought the 24" bags a few years ago. I filled them FULL! OH DUH I think they work better partly full, at last to stop rain water. They have been a garage saver for flooding. however the grout between tiles let the rain slip under the very tight bags. Now, the "straw-man" water divertor has been replaced by the 36" new bags! We will fill them @ half + full so they can mold to the walk-ways. LOVE these bags, they wear like iron. We keep them under our patio deck out of the sun. they are like new! !! THANK YOU SANDBAG STORE!! ,
  • clean, look nice, get the water diverted, down the walk way, NOT in garage.
  • Easy to move, & remove
  • 0 cons, love them!

I just received my ten five foot tubes today ( sat 19 Jun ). We filled 3 each with sand Had to put them out as it was already raining. I carried one about 30 ft and a handle ripped loose on one side already. Hope these are as good as they are advertised. I will let you know more after used a couple days Thanks SFC RETIRED. Arthur R Riggs

Merchant Response:Arthur, Thank you for the review. It is not acceptable for your handle to have failed and I am sorry for this experience. We have sent you a replacement bag and added an inspection step to the handle attachment line to ensure handle integrity going forward. Please accept our apologies and thank you for your service to our country. Respectfully, Chris Haas President, Founder

Terrific! Worth every penny

I've got a converted garage with an uneven slab and I needed something to help keep water out. These fit the bill perfectly and they look great. Couldn't find them anywhere else. Glad I came upon this site. Oh yeah...super fast delivery too. Thanks, Sandbag Store!

A very practical solution...
January 31, 2021
I have a bizarre flooding situation. I can't keep all the flooding out of my garage, but once the water gets in, I can control where it goes and get it out of there before everything gets damaged. They are much easier to handle than my other, standard sand bags and lets me accomplish the task at hand with fewer sand bags. Couldn't be happier!
  • Handles for easy carrying.
  • Ability to control the flow of water with its tubular shape.
  • Requires fewer sand bags so you have less strain on your back!
By LynR
Unique design but needs improvement
January 9, 2021
The bags seem well constructed and hold at least the stated amount of sand. I bought them for the handles. Unfortunately, the handles are the same size as the bag so there is no space to put your fingers let alone your hands through them. They are good bags but don't buy them for the handles.

Merchant Response:Thanks for the great feedback! There is a purpose for the handles to be even with the bag fabric - tube sandbags can be a serious trip hazard if the handles formed loops above the bag. Since sand is generally soft, and the bags are designed to be filled slightly less than completely full, the handles should be usable. If seeking a bag with a large sturdy loop handle, customers can consider Saddle Sandbags. Again we appreciate the review and are always open to these great ideas and honest feedback. Respectfully, Chris Haas President & Founder

Tube Sandbags
December 9, 2020
The handles need to be longer as when the tubes are full it's hard to get your fingers under them. Overall, a great product and I will probably be buying more. A question, can they be used to pin a silo tarp instead of using sawdust or dirt?

Sexy sandbags!
December 5, 2020
I wanted something nice to hold down the bottom of the clear plastic tarps on my patio cover. Regular, poly-based sandbags weren't going to cut it. Then I found these - the perfect size and very attractive. The seem very high quality and should last for several seasons.
  • Heavy duty material
  • Attractive
  • Nice color options
  • Perfect size for my needs

Just got them and filled with sand. Easy to do, and the Velcro does a good job of closing the end. The bags appear to be well-built, and the material feels tough. Planning on ordering another set.

Serves the purpose
November 19, 2020
Bought a box of these for ballast for my truck in the winter - hopefully this will be a lifetime supply. They're doing the job so far. My only gripe is they're made of pretty thin material, but since it's nylon, maybe that's OK? They're not going to be tossed around, just moved out of the bed in the Spring.

Merchant Response:Thanks for the review Tom. The fabric is the best marine-grade fabric for this use we could find. If you have any trouble over the next three years, please contact me directly for free replacements. Respectfully, Chris Haas President, Founder

Great Durability and Looks
October 25, 2020
We use these in our gardens to hold down row cover and silage tarps over our beds. Before these we used U-****'s woven poly bags that would seemingly dissolve in sunlight within a few months and leak the contents all over our manicured garden. Not a single canvas bag from the Sandbag Store has degraded after two seasons (USDA zone 5A) and what looks like many more to come. I'm especially impressed with the velcro seal holding the contents in, these have been tossed, dropped, submerged in mud, over wintered in the field, exposed to any and all elements, and they keep holding up. The strap handle is very useful in our application as we have to move them on and off the tarps and the strap is a time saver that I didnt see coming until many hours of use. And if your fingers are strong enough you can carry three in each hand using their strap handles. The canvas is strong, just the other day I was edging sod and one of these bags was hidden and overgrown by meadow grass and I hit it directly with my spade and it wasn't punctured or torn at all by the hit. Very impressed. Yes they cost a fortune relative to other sandbags but if your business depends on sandbags staying put and not falling apart or leaking these are worth the 'one and done' purchase. We chose the narrow tube style bags as they are laid parallels in our garden's footpaths which are only 18" wide and they fit great.
  • Durable Canvas
  • Durable Velcro
  • Strap Handle is a time saver
  • Weather and sun proof
  • Aesthetically pleasing colors
  • Looks professional
  • Expensive for what appears to be a basic fabric textile product

Very durable-well made bags
October 10, 2020
These bags are very durable and am sure would work well for what most people would use these for. I however found a different use for them and am very satisfied. I have a custom ‘70 El Camino SS and wanted to add weight to the rear of the car so there is a compartment underneath bed that I was able to purchase several sand bags from a big box store and empty sand into these bags so I am confident that they will not rupture over of all they are made in THE US OF A
  • Easy to fill and very durable
  • The carry strap is very convenient makes it easier to deadlift
  • Made in THE US OF A
  • None that I see happening

These little tubes work great for drainage!
September 30, 2020
If you need to divert water, these are the way to go! They will slide the water around them. They won't stop a flood, but they will divert the water. I have been using them for the past 4 years. They will wear out after a couple of years and will need to be replaced. They have been a lifesaver for me.

August 5, 2020
So far I've filled up 5 of the 10 shipped to me and have put them to work right away on our back lanai to keep some of the rain water from entering our lanai. I might have to order more though.
  • Love the idea of 2 handles on the 36" tubes, it makes it real easy to carry around.
  • opening is tough to fill with sand .... i'll need to come up with some kind of funnel.
  • wished there was a way to connect them together.

These things should be great. Still waiting for a heavy rainstorm to see if they alleviate my yard flooding
Better quality option than Home Depot
June 18, 2020
I purchased the 2 ft size. They seem sturdy, well made and easy to fill. My only suggestion would be to add handles to each end, as they only have one in the middle which causes the other ends to sag as you're picking them up. Otherwise, they do the job.

Merchant Response:Thanks for the suggestion RF! Our 24" bags have a single handle, while our 36, 48, and 60" bags have double handles. We did originally have two handles on the 24" bag, however most customers requested a single handle so that it could fold in half and behave similar to a saddle sandbag. We changed the design about 6 years ago because of those requests. If you would like to exchange your 24" bags for 36", please contact us and we will make that happen at no further cost to you.

The sandbags are working great so far, the only issue I've had was that one of the handles broke right away. I filled it up and picked it up by the handle and the handle ripped off.
  • Sorry for the ripped handle! We have overnighted two replacement bags to you and included an inspection step after handle attachment in the manufacturing process to ensure this doesn't happen again. Thank you for the review!

Perfect for my unusual application
December 18, 2019
These sandbags are perfect for my solution to keep the Colorado high winds from blowing my trash can lids open and scattering my trash through the neighborhood. I partially filled them with sand, and used paracord to tie them to the lid hinge/handles. They don't interfere with the mechanical lifting mechanism on the truck, and ease back into place when the truck puts the can back down. I have clips to easily remove them when not in use.

Merchant Response:Clever! Very cool use of the Tube Sandbags.

Great for adding weight to truck beds
November 21, 2019
I purchase filled sand bags or tubes to add weight in the back of my pick-up truck each winter. At some point, at least one breaks open allowing the sand and small gravel to leak into the truck bed as well as the tailgate area which can hamper closing it. I purchased the empty tube sandbags from the Sandbag Store, filled them with the contents from the broken bags, attached several together using HEAVYDUTY Velcro and secured them to the back of the truck bed using the bed's tie downs. So far, so GOOD! In the spring, the handles will make it easy to store the bags until next winter and no worries about them tearing for several years. In the short and long run saving money, too
  • Better fabric, handles, size and color choices, quick delivery,

Strong and sturdy-does the job!
August 7, 2019
I bought these to keep the runoff from flooding my driveway. The handles make them very easy to carry. I filled them with cheap Masonry sand. I used a cut down bleach bottle to hold them Open while I filled them. When filling them, shake the sand down to pack it. Add more sand until it's packed well. I bought these instead of hiring an asphalt contractor to build a gutter. And I highly recommend them!

These were bought for a special project ...holding down Tarp on top of my boat roof... been keeping roof frames dry till a full roof job can be done... These tubes have been exposed 24hrs a day to the Marine environment as the boat is in it's slip... Temp ranges from 105* to 4*...Hurricane Michael with 110 mph winds...took 30ft of fashion panel off but trap and bags were still on my roof... Got a solid 2 years... was hoping for longer but I'm very pleased with them...a little work to fill... I found the best way was to have someone on a ladder and someone holding tube... use parking/traffic cone upside down small end into the mouth of the bag...leave some room in the bag or you won't be able to get your hands under carrying straps. The failure was actually in the fabric of the bag not straps...just ordered 10 more :-)

Merchant Response:While 2 years life on a roof isn't bad, these bags should have lasted 3 years. We have changed our fabric mill to a even higher quality manufacturer about a year ago, so we hope your replacement bags last far beyond the 3 year life. We have refunded your 2nd order (41681) as we feel your original order should have lasted longer.

I used to have to lift 60 lb tubes of sand for weight in my truck in the winter. These tubes were getting heavier over the years and were also wearing out as they were only a woven cheap plastic mesh. These sandbags now hold 20 lbs of sand, are easier to carry as they have a built in handle, they are made of heavy duty material and will last a long time. One of the best features is the velcro closure, which will enable me to access and use some sand if I need it for traction, and recluse the bag without having an open sandbag in my vehicle. Thank you for this great product, and thank you for your service.

We have an exterior drain at the bottom of a basement stairwell that gets clogged with leaves and overflows during heavy rains, causing the stairwell to flood and water to flow under the door into our basement. We placed a couple of these sandbags in front of the door and a couple at the top of the stairwell and it has completely solved the problem. As an added bonus, these sandbags are not an eyesore and look like they will hold up well over time. We are happy with our purchase.
