CraftmanshipButterfly sandbags, sometimes called fly-away sandbags, are beautifully hand crafted indoor/outdoor handled sandbags. The handle is sewn into the pocket edges, creating a wing motion when the bag is lifted. Because of this unique motion, the bag easily "releases" from your stands and booms. This black butterfly sandbag is filled with sanitized sand and sewn shut for the strongest closure available.

Butterfly Sandbags are very puncture and burst resistant thanks to strong 1000D Cordura nylon fabric and industrial nylon thread construction. Thick plastic internal liner bags help keep dust in and water out.

Heavy duty D-rings sewn into the bag for hanging and fastening.

Thick 6 mil poly liner bags and urethane coated fabric to keep dust in and water out.

This is not a regular purchase for us so we were in unknown territory when we went looking for sandbags.
The website was clear and helped us understand our options.
The delivery was quick and without hitch.
The product is quality and dependable.

Best sandbags in the world
January 23, 2023
I couldn’t be happier these are so professional looking. I’ve had them for 4 months now, and they are as crisp and and shiny as the day I open the box there is no dust there is only shine on the surface of all my orange bags. I love them I can see them they save my expensive light stands from falling over there easy to maintain because there is no maintenance. All I have done is hang them and forget that they’re their best purchase yet for my beautiful studio they actually look better now than they did when I first hung them. Thanks again I wanted to buy more but I can’t justify the purchase. They’re just too good to need anymore. Thank you. Great weight great color great product.

Covering events for network news organizations, these sandbags reek of high quality and superior materials.

And with priority mail at no cost to customer, these sandbags arrived within 48 hours!

These sandbags are my insurance for heavy lights and suns rims, also protecting my on camera talent from being assaulted on air by a blown over scrim!

Thank you,

Phin Percy

Didn’t know you could order sandbags through the mail. But was glad to find out you could. These sandbags are perfect . The right size and shape, and any weight you could ask for; even colors. Great company with fast delivery. Glad I found them.

Extremely well made. Exceeded my expectations!

I ordered 2-20# butterfly bags and 1-25# bag. These are truly quality sandbags. I am comparing these to the "industry standard" orange sandbags I used everyday when assisting on big photo shoots in L.A. I was looking for a place to get quality sandbags for a fair price and found it here.

The shipping was lightning fast. I live in Ca. and ordered them yesterday, they arrived today!

I only wish that The Sandbag Store offered a combo bag, half butterfly and half saddle.

These will most likely last me 10+ years of good use.

Thanks guys and keep us the great work!
  • Lightning fast shipping!
  • High quality material as well as excellent craftsmanship on the sewing.
  • None - other than I wish they offered a combo bag, half butterfly and half saddle.

The butterfly sandbags came in on time and the quality of the bags is wonderful!! There was a little snafu in the ordering process and Jim was immediately responsive and the problem was corrected with no cost to me.

Would use The Sandbag Store again in a heartbeat!!

These are top of the line. I've had my original order in market for a year now and they have yet to fall apart. That's huge considering they are used every single day of the week.
