I got two of these bags.
They are an amazing prop, with a variety of uses, at a good price point.
Filled mine with 8 pounds each of pre-washed "play sand".. after preparing the sand to remove dust.
My advice is to take the time to wash your sand, if sand is what you choose to use. All pre-washed sand contains an alarming amount of dust.

Great bags. High quality and easy to fill. Sturdy.

These bags are stout and, most importantly, don't leak sand. The inner liner holds up well and does not allow 'fines' to sift through either the zipper or through the bag itself. They can be filled with a varying amount of sand - I have 10 pounds in two of mine, others adjusted down to 5Lb. They are a great tool for long slow stretches.

We filled our new sandbags with Jasmine rice and added a few drops of lavender. They are wonderful! The quality is great - they are sturdy and we really appreciate that the washable cover easily removes. Our restorative yogis are very happy!

I was skeptical about purchasing an unfilled sandbag, but my friend recommended it to me. I filled it with rice and it works great! Sometimes I add more/take out less to adjust the weight, but I use it at the gym for my upper body workouts. Sometimes when I get home I warm it up and make it into a heating pad for my aches. Will be buying more
