Matthews Water Repellant Sandbag (11.5kg/25lb) – Orange (299599)
Matthews Sandbags come in a variety of shapes and weights. They are used for securing the bases of light stands and set walls. The #299599 Sandbag has two wings, allowing it to be draped over light stand legs.
Sandbags are used whenever you need extra weight to prevent tipping. You usually "bag" stands, especially when the weight is off center, such as with a heavy Scrim. They help stabilize equipment in windy situations and can counter balance Boom Arm applications.
Matthews' #299599 Sandbag is sold filled with sanitized sand, to prevent algae growth if the bag gets damp.
