SKLZ Super Sandbag
Leaked sand from both the filler bags and the shell itself.
This bag only held together for a week or two. Soon after the filler bags started leaking sand and soon after the shell was leaking sand from holes being worn into it. Spend the extra money and get the real deal....the Ultimate Sandbag (I used these at the police academy, along with many cadet classes before mine and they still held up perfectly.)

inner bags don't fit
Seemed to be well made but when I filled all 4 bags with 10 pounds of sand It was a struggle to get the outer bag zipped with three bags in and with four no matter how I tried to arrange them the outer bag would not even begin to close. There was a 12" gap in the middle. I returned it to the store with no problem and was told that they had had quite a few returns for this reason. Dick's service was excellent as usual. I bought the more expensive on line bag and there was no problem but I had to spend double the price.

So I purchased this to use this on my hike here in SoCal and on day 2 with 30lbs in it, the seams along the zipper to the end cap of the bag began to let loose. Keep in mind this is just from hiking with it on my shoulders. nothing more. bought it for the versatile handle positions but if the ends dont hold how are the handles going to keep in tact.

Good quality product at good price
Just what i was looking for when searching for a good, quality exercise sand bag.

This is a great product, and the price is reasonable. I was looking at purchasing a similar bag online, but it was $80, which seemed pretty steep. I've had it for a few months and I had one bag leak a little, but it was because the inner velcro on the bag wasn't fully fastened. I carefully cleaned it and re-sealed it and haven't had a problem since.

Good affordable sand bag
It was half the price as the other sand bags online. the material is good and well done, good handles. the only bad point is the sand bag closer, made with Velcro and not very tight. the sand is going out of the sand bag. I will put some duct tape to fully close it. but overall performance is good.

Awesome Sandbag great price!
So far so good, great product, only down side is I had to empty a little sand from one of them to fit all the bags inside safely, I felt like when I used the max sand it wouldn't fit properly without me worrying it would break the zipper, so I have about 35lbs instead of 40...

I was worried about quality since the price is so much less than other sandbags, but I was really impressed. Works great and seems pretty durable. No complaints.

good outer duffle bag, poor inner bag
The outer design is almost exactly the same as the ultimate sandbag, with respect to the handles. I choose this bag because it was half the cost of that one [...]. From the few reviews on this bag, it seemed like it was durable and could be able to take abuse. There was one reviewer who commented on the sand leaking out of the inner bags. With this in mind, I filled each bag ~ 80% capacity (35lb total weight) so that there was less chance for sand to come out and made sure that each double velcro sealing was flush. I played with it for 10 mins. Yes, there was sand coming out. The sand was not leaking from the velcro sealings - those were designed well. It is the stitching on each bag that was designed poorly. The stitchings are too wide (1/8''), which allow the sand to flow freely from each inner bag when pressure is applied. Thus, I duct taped the (1) side and bottom of each bad where the stitching was. There is no problem now, and I added more sand to 40lb capacity. This is a great bag for the price if one does not mind some arts and crafts for 10 mins.
