These Are Great Tent Weights
January 28, 2019
The Apex Tent Weights are very functional and also useful for other purposes. There are many other tent weights out there that are either bi-sectional or flat, but these beat them in every way.

Made of heavy canvas and double-stitched throughout, the Apex sandbags hold almost as much as the traditional bags. They have a hook/loop flap that runs the length of the bag and hugs the tent pole without ripping loose from the bag. A side pocket holds an accessory strap that is designed to allow the bag to hang from the upper tent structure or other points along the pole.

For those of you in the AV and stage-hand side of things, the strap can also allow hanging onto the center of speaker and light stands and stage sections that need a wind or stability anchor. A heavy-duty zipper runs around the top to make filling and adjusting the bag contents very easy and worry-free from loose sand or pea-sized gravel getting loose (my favorite as it allows flexibility and does not work out of small holes)
The top carry handle makes them an easy transfer and transport item.

They come in several colors, of which we find the blue a perfect match to some school colors. We are progressively replacing our old bags. The price is great compared to other products out on the market and being made in the U.S.A. makes them a good buy to keep people employed in America. These are well thought out sandbags.
ProsGreat configuration Accessory strap for increased attachment options Pocket for the accessory strap to store on the bag Useful for sound, lighting, and stage Heavy-duty zipper around the top for filling and adjustments of weight Top handle for carrying and transfers Many colors available Made in U.S.A. Good pricing

Very nice
November 5, 2020
Very nice. A bit overpriced in my opinion... but I like that they have a zip top, a carry handle as well as a clip to secure a rope from the bag to the tent corner. Time will tell how they hold up but they seem to be well made. Until I got these I was using buckets of concrete which don't look very good and they are awkward to move around. These bags look good as they match my tent frame and they are easy to transport.
ProsLook good, easy to transport, has a carry handle and a d ring to secure a rope from the bag to the roof corner
ConsSlightly overpriced but like anything else, I'd rather pay a bit more and get a lot more than pay a bit less and get a lot less.

These sandbags are the BEST way I found to hold a tent in place! They look awesome and do the job SO well! The speedy shipment was awesome- so was their customer service. I was so happy to find a cool product- made in the USA- by a veteran owned company! Support USA made products! Our veterans are amazing- support them every chance you get!!
ProsWeight of your choice up to 40 lbs- Looks great- Nice color choices- Nice fabric- Stability- WAY easier than using water in a barrel- Easy to carry- Stays in place- Awesome sandbags!

Did men design this??
September 26, 2020
High quality tent sandbag but lacks 2 upgrades that should not be missing for that exceedingly high price.

When bag is filled it is impossible to get into the pocket to store the strap....it needs to be puckered out to allow access. Also the velcro strip for closing the bag around the tent pole is so friggin hard to get open. Please put some pull loops along the edge for ease of pulling open.
Merchant Response:Hi Patti! Thanks for the review and design change suggestions. This is the first time we have heard of the pockets being too tight, however we can see how that is possible and will try to modify the design to allow more room in that pocket. The Velcro is very sturdy and can be tough to open. Its kind of a trade-off between strength of closure and difficulty of opening.

the best sandbag for keeping your canopy secured
September 2, 2020
I bought sandbags from a different manufacturer to secure my canopy from blowing away during breezy days. What a mistake. They felt like they would not last long and did not include the ties down straps. I quickly returned them. The sandbags I ordered from the sandbagstore are everything I hoped for. They are simply awesome, built to last. I use the tie down straps all of the time. No more worries about windy days.

These bags are made for tent poles or portable awnings, etc., but I'm using them a different way. I have a large covered patio with large pull-down sunshades. I needed something that looked good and was extremely functional to anchor the shades down in the wind. These sandbags fit the bill perfectly. They hold 40lbs of sand, have a nice carry handle, and a strong D ring which I'm using to anchor my sunshades to. They have a small footprint, are extremely versatile, and very well made.

Awesome For The BEACH!!!
July 13, 2020
Bought these for my canopies we use at the beach. Filled them with beach sand and set up was a breeze. In the afternoon of day one of our vacation, a storm blew up quick while on the beach. The wind was very strong and blew half the canopies over that were set up around us. My canopy did not move an itch and we weathered the storm fine; our canopy is still in great shape for continued use because it did not get blown over. Thanks for this great product. Absolutely worth every penny.
Pros- Sturdy construction; well made. - Great design with the carry handle and the D-ring for the adjustable tie down strap. - Easy setup. - Performs as advertised. - Lots of colors to choose from. I got the orange and they are easy to see when installed. -One of the best products I have ever purchased for use at the beach.

Can't Blow the Man Down!
July 12, 2020
Bought these bags for our 10x10 shade canopy which is positioned on our concrete patio, and let me tell you they are worth every penny paid!
Since installed, we have had high wind thunder storms which blew over our shade umbrella, knocked over plants and took down a couple of tree limbs...but the canopy didn't move an inch!!!

After receipt we had a question.
When I called all employees but one had left for the day.
The employee took my information and guaranteed a call back upon opening the next day.
True to his word the next morning a customer service rep provided support as promised.

Efficient, courteous customer service.
This is a company that has solid business values from the point of order entry, to delivery and beyond.

Highly recommended this company and its products.
ProsMaterial is very high quality. Zippers, straps and Velcro are strong. Bag size doesn't comprehend walking space.
ConsNONE :)

Excellent Quality
June 29, 2020
I've been impressed with the quality. Love the carrying handle and color choices. I've only used these once at a Graduation Party I was Dj-ing at but they were great. I took away one star only because the piece that you wrap around the leg of your canopy to attach the sandbag to, I feel, should be able to accommodate a thicker canopy leg. It still worked but the velcro attached only about 3/4 of the way around. Granted, the canopy I own is of a nicer quality and has thicker legs but I feel that as-is the sandbags would work perfectly with skinny(ier) canopy legs and if this piece was simply made larger it would accommodate a wider variety of canopy legs, making it ideal.
Merchant Response:Thanks for the great review JuJu. Wonderful news: we do offer a velcro extentions for larger canopy legs! Even better news: they are free! We are sending you four right away. We realize we do a terrible job explaining this on our website and are working to fix that as soon as possible. For anyone reading this review that might need them, simply write "REQUEST VELCRO EXTENTIONS" in the comments of your order and we will include them for you completely free.
Prosquality color choices carrying handle
Consvelcro piece that attaches to the leg of the canopy needs to accommodate thicker canopy legs so that it can be used with a greater variety of canopy styles.

Love these bags!
June 12, 2020
It's clear to me that these bags are great quality. I've used them with bricks and with sand; I put them into contractor garbage bags first. They've stood up to heavy rains and they dry quickly. The additional straps are also genius. I highly recommend these bags.

I used four of these sandbags 90? apart on our trampoline to prevent it from blowing away during storms. I read in another review that someone used contractor bags inside the sandbag to fill up with sand. I did this and it worked great!

the sand bags are great. I utilized the plastic bag within the sandbag and hasn’t dropped one grain of sand. The only comment i have is when i utilize my tent wall the velcro that attaches to the pole is in the same spot as the velcro for the bags. If i put a large coffee can under the sandbag i can attach the sandbag velcro and the wall velcro attaches fine.

I've bought sandbags from The Sandbag store before for an umbrella. They were very well designed and did exactly what I wanted. I have a 10x10 folding beach cover that I didn't want to blow away. I found these weights and they even had a color that matched my cover. Excellent quality.

We used these apex sandbags in a 20x40 tent and used it for 3 days. It got windy at times and our tent didn't move an inch! People couldn't believe how nice and well made they were. I would recommend this to anyone. If carrying a heavy load is a issue then using a hand cart solves the problem!

Just the best solution for vendors who use a canopy.
September 20, 2018
As a vendor who operates outside under a canopy, this is the best solution for safe operation while looking sleek and stylish at the same time.

If you want to have a great presentation for out door markets, this is your only solution.

I fill these with 50 lbs. of pea gravel, for a more than adequate weighting system for may canopy.
I have witnessed other light canopies twisting in the wind while my canopy is still holding strong.

ProsHandle for carrying Strap to attach to canopy roof Easy velcro attachment to legs of canopy
ConsThe only con is if you do not own these before you next outdoor event.
