FAQ's

Do you sell burlap sandbags?
No. Burlap sandbags are more-or-less obsolete. Synthetic fabrics last far longer, have no bad odor, are cheaper, and available in many colors. Burlap is still useful for people needing to set a sandbag and have the bag biodegrade in a couple of months.
Do you offer filled sandbags?
Yes, we offer a filled option for all of our sandbags. Generally a drop-down menu is available to select “Filled” sandbags for an added charge. Some of our bags only are available prefilled.
Do you really offer free shipping?
Our #1 asked question. Yes, we offer free standard shipping in the continental USA on all of our empty and filled products. Pre-filled theatrical bags (Saddle, Ballast, Butterfly, & Circular) also ship for free to Alaska & Hawaii in less-than-pallet quantities (less than 50 bags).
Do you ship internationally?
Currently we will ship internationally with orders valued at $5,000.00 or more. The customer is responsible for any duties, taxes, and customs broker fees as well as the cost of shipping the product from Las Vegas, NV U.S.A.
What is the best way to fill the Canopy Sandbag?
A tip is to use a garbage bag as a liner and you can fill it up to 40lbs of sand or gravel. The liner keeps dust contained.
What is the best way to fill the Tube Sandbag?
Use a funnel and only fill it to the Velcro. Larger fill product like chip rock or pea gravel will help eliminate dust if using the bags for fitness.
Are your bulk bags lined?
Our bulk bags are not lined, water will seep through them.
What is the best way to fill the Circular Sandbags?
Fill zip lock style bags (sandwich bags) with sand and put those inside your bag. This will also help keep the sand contained inside the Circular bag.
Are your sandbags waterproof?
Most of our products are made with a water resistant fabric but they do have seams so water can seep in.
Do you use liners inside your Saddle Sandbags?
Yes, please refer to the product detail.
Are you Saddle Sandbags dust proof?
Our Cordura nylon bags that we prefill are dust proof.
Do you do precision weight on filled bags?
We use a calibrated load cell bagging machine with a variance of 2 oz. @ 25 lbs (99.95%). Filled DuraBags, Poly Sandbags, Armor Sandbags, and Ace Sandbags are filled using a volumetric belt bagger which is accurate to +/- 2 lbs @ 40 lbs (95.0%).
Do you do custom weights on filled bags?
Clients needing to order a custom weight should call our office. Generally we will round up to the nearest weight for pricing. As an example, if a client needs 7.5 lb saddle sandbags, we charge for a 10 lb saddle sandbag.
Do you print on the bags?
We have a full in-house print shop. Our print specialist will create a silk screen and print your bags in any single color prior to sewing them. Inks are mixed with a fixing agent to chemically bond the ink to the fabrics. When selecting “Single Color Print” option, we will email you for a copy of your logo and any additional requests you might have. We then email a digital mock-up for your review and acceptance before producing your custom printed sandbags. We do not screen print on poly sandbags.
Do you offer different colors than what is on your website?
For large orders (exceeding $2,000 in value) we can bring in special colored fabrics for your project. Give us a call or complete our Quick Quote form to get started on your custom color sandbags.
How long does it take to get my order?

Do you charge sales tax?

Do you accept purchase orders?
