Basically indestructible
January 4, 2023
After my original sandbags (that came with my tent) split open the second time I used them I knew I needed to invest in some more durable bags. My husband found these and so far they seem completely unaffected by anything I throw at them. I've dropped them, used them in extremely high winds and rain, and thrown them in my car recklessly innumerable times. I think it's safe to say they're worth the cost. If I needed any additional sandbags for any reason I would trust The Sandbag Store
  • Very durable!
  • None so far!

Pricey, but works well.
March 20, 2024
Material is solid and has been long lasting. Velcro to wrap around the legs of the tent is a good idea, but it is tight and difficult to pull apart as it makes too strong of a strong connection. Strap connectors work well and keep a partially full bag vertical. I like the ability to control the weight of the bag. Pea gravel works well and is less messy than sand, but sand provides more weight. Overall a good buy that will last a long time.

These Apex Tent Weights are great, and so well constructed. I appreciate that they are made in the USA, are so beefy, and easy to fill. The included adjustable straps function very well for weighting down a pop-up canopy.

Thank you for making a quality product!

40 lbs. bags
October 27, 2023
They were perfect! I used pea gravel and they attached to the tent perfectly..We did have a breeze at our artisan fair and it help perfectly--worth the $$$
By Katie S.
Excellent weights!
April 19, 2023
This is our 2nd purchase of these sets of bags. Love them! We use rocks in ours not sand. Sand is just so messy and if it raining then no messy glob of sand. Plus no sand in the car. Wind can be so crazy at farmers markets and events but I am never stressing my tent when I'm using these! Thank you!

I have used a few different Brands and this is the second time I've ordered these. They are extremely sturdy and work great for our large company events.
  • Very Sturdy we use gravel in our bags and haven't had a single tear. They are transported often and no leakages.

Fantastic Product
December 1, 2022
These things are great! The handles on them make them easy to pack and handle. These are heavy when full of sand, having the handles allows you to easily pack 2 at a time, or more if you can. We use them to hold down the shade canopy for my daughter's soccer team. I think they actually hold better than stakes in the ground. These can be used on turf where stakes cannot be used. The material quality is the best I have found as compared to similar products. The dual system is also unique to these products. You can Velcro to the legs of the frame and also use the lines to hold the fabric in place utilizing the heavy duty D Rings they have on them. I have not found another weight bag that comes this way.

Merchant Response:Thanks for the review Curtis! The best way to keep dust from seeping through the zipper is just put all your sand into a kitchen trash bag, then put that into the Apex Bag. Really appreciate the review and best of luck to your soccer team!
  • Material quality, handles, dual tie-down system
  • Sand leaks out of zipper's slightly. To remedy this just need to use coarser sand or small gravel.
By Duane
Outstanding !!
December 1, 2022
After using several makeshift weights, these are the real deal.
I made a liner from heavy duty plastic bags, filled with pea gravel and closed the liner with duct tape.
Not concerns about spillage in case the zipper opened.
The full bag was perfectly 40 lbs. The handle is sturdy and allowed for easy carting.
Attached to tent leg with a bungee to attach to the canopy.

Totally no worries about the tent after installation (and it was quite windy).

Heavy duty materials - fabric and velcro. Love having the tie-down straps thoughtfully integrated with the sandbag design. Could not be more satisfied.
  • Ease of use
  • Can easily change weight with more or less sand to accommodate weather conditions
  • Are intuitive to use - no training nor instructions needed with volunteers helping with setup

Great for Open House Signs
September 18, 2022
As a REALTOR I have been looking for a solution to keep my OPEN HOUSE signs in place. I have tried a few different things before discovering the Apex tent weights. I ordered a color that matches my signs so not only do they work well to keep my signs from blowing away....they look great!

I bought the Apex tent weights and filled them almost completely with sand. These are fantastic and I love using them. They are a great improvement upon the concrete weights I was using before. I am no longer afraid that I will break a finger or a toe if they are dropped on me. And, they are so easy to attach to the tent. It is nice how they are customizable and can be filled with more or less sand to be the perfect weight for your particular situation.

So thankful they actually work!

I have bought quite a few sandbags from Amazon and they do not hold up to the weight of the sand they are supposed to contain. I had to constantly replace them. I need a lot of weight in my bags as my tent is placed in a windy area at our weekly markets so being able to actually fill them with sand and not rip is important. These Apex bags are AWESOME. I am so happy that they are super sturdy and I can rest assured that I won’t have to replace them anytime soon. I appreciate the detail that has gone into making them. It feels like someone actually tested them for their intended purpose and made sure they actually do the job they are supposed to. We use them outdoors every weekend and they are durable and we get lots of questions from other vendors about where we got such nice bags. So glad to have found these bags!
  • Sturdy handle, thorough leg wrap

Solid bag, heavy duty zippers! I've filled it with rocks and sand, had no problems so far. I would recommend these over what Amazon has to offer.
  • Strong stitches, good zipper, built rugged. Quality canvas as well.

Use these at the beach to hold down a canopy from blowing away. Bags are solidly built and shipped here quickly. No complaints after a few uses. Have a feeling I'll be using these for the next 20+ years.
  • Good build
  • Good price
  • Fast shippping
  • Nothing so far.

Durable, sturdy and can hold the sand like a champ
June 7, 2022
I'm using these bags for weighting down my festival tent. These bags are durable -- the handles and straps stay put - no ripping or tearing so far. The buckle for lengthening the straps is easy to adjust. Velcro is super strong and stays put. I lined my bags with a trash bag and then added sand to be extra sure that my sand doesn't leak out. Overall, great product and GREAT customer service.
  • I would also have liked a side handle sewn on for added grabbing options.

High quality!

I just recently started doing art shows & the venue required 40 lb weights. I wanted something easy and that would hold up over time. I’ve done two shows with them & they are awesome. So easy. Just attach it to the tent leg and done. Thankfully it came with hurricane straps too! Our most recent show had wind gusts that night of 20 miles per hour. The tent did not blow away. Thank you for making a wonderful product. I looked at other websites and different weights but these are worth the money. I used a garbage bag on the inside to hold my sand. Also the handles make them easy to pick up and move! I also store them inside per instructions to preserve the life of the product. I plan to use these for years to come!! Thanks so much!
  • Handles
  • Strong material
  • Straps to attach for windy day
  • Over all sturdy
  • Work every penny!
  • A bigger pocket for storing the straps. When bags are filled with sand it is hard to get it in the pocket. Maybe move pocket up higher and make it bigger.

Great Sandbags for Canopies
September 7, 2021
I have been using these bags for years. They are durable and work well for quick setup. We are constantly setting and taking down and setting up again.

The Velcro strap is also long lasting.

I would recommend the product to anyone.
  • durable, strong fabric & velcro
  • The zipper top lid is the worst part of it. It would be nice if they stay zipped.

Superb Sandbags
September 3, 2021
I bought these sandbags to reinforce an outdoor gazebo so that it would not blow away when strong winds came through my backyard. I am pleased to say that the sandbags did their job and kept my gazebo in place throughout a series of storms and gale force winds over the past year. Highly recommended.
  • Durable, easy to fill, secures to object easily.

We have a lot of outdoor events for our church. Being in Central FL Thunder storms come up quick with gusty winds. I was using a different bag form a competitor and after a few months the seams were splitting. I figured I give these a shot, so I ordered 8. They work fantastic! Shortly after I got another 14 and just ordered another 22 today.
Don't look any further, this is the one!
  • Excellent construction and easy to fill with Playground sand. Attaches easily to canopy legs and the D ring and cinch strap are a great added security.
  • None! I would challenge you find one.

Great bags

I am very happy with these bags. I purchased four and I feel absolutely confident in the stability of my tent at festivals in the middle of storms and winds. They look fantastic too!
  • Sturdy construction
  • Handles for transport
  • Large size allows for full weight limit per leg in a single bag
  • A bit heavy heavy when filled to capacity, but then that is expected!

Quality and USA made. Remember?

These are way beyond any of the overseas made flimsy lightweight sacks used to weight the canopy down. These are the real deal....tough, durable quality material and hardware. A real value for a few buck more than offshore throwaways. You will not find a better bag for the money!

These color coordinated Apex Tent Weights have been working very very well to hold our 10' x 10' sun shade perfectly in place on an upstairs balcony often exposed to gusty west winds.
  • did not come with the filler sand (we actually bought crushed granite to fill)

Love these bags!
June 2, 2021
I have been using these this season for the farmers market, in red to match my tent, and really like them. The material and craftsmanship is good quality, especially for the price. It was surprisingly difficult to find bags that would each hold 40lbs of sand so these are really amazing. They're very easy to fill and definitely do their job! I've recommended them to two other family members for their tents too.

For things I personally have issues with which may not bother other people:

1) I find that the sand I'm using does tend to leak through the zipper if they tip over in the car, which almost always happens, but it's just a little bit. I may just have some really fine sand;
2) it's a little challenging to use these with the walls of my tent BC the velcro that runs the length of these bags (which is amazing and very secure!) overlaps some of the attachment points for the walls. It's not a deal breaker for me but kinda annoying;

Just as an aside, I'm 5'2", and up to this point, I had no idea how much 40lbs actually weighs when in such a small space. The handle is super strong, and by necessity on the top of the bag, but it's really hard for me personally to lift and move these when they're full in that configuration. If, like me, you must have 40lbs on each leg of your tent, and you're a smaller person or can't lift so much, I might suggest trying to use two 20lb bags per leg instead.

Merchant Response:Thanks for the great review M! What wonderful feedback. Your suggestions have been heard. 1. We have been working on a smaller size option and hope to offer it soon. 2. For tents with walls, some customers use the included straps to secure from the top corners, then bungie the bottom of the bag to the foot. 3. Fine Sand - try dumping your sand into a kitchen trash bag to act as a liner to the sandbag. The fine plastic will contain the dust while the Apex Sandbag will support and protect the inner bag.
  • Quality materials and craftsmanship
  • Strong handle
  • Lots of colours
  • Easy to fill
  • Larger than other bags of its type
  • Single long velcro is wide and incredibly strong
  • Heavy, duh
  • Zipper leaks a little
  • Handle bites into hands
  • Falls over in moving car
  • Single long velcro makes use with tent walls a challenge

Must have for the beach
February 3, 2021
We purchased two of these last year for our trip to Pebble Beach, Emerald Isle North Carolina. I used them to secure our beach umbrellas although the weather the mostly calm and sunny. We had a two hour period were it rained and the wind really picked up and everyone else’s umbrellas and canopies were blowing across the beach, ours didn’t even move!! After the brief storm we had dozens of people come over and check out what was holding our umbrellas down! Great product really well built!.
