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

Finally weights that work perfectly!
October 16, 2018
In the past 20 years I have tried multiple ways to weight my art show tent. Just used these last weekend at a show. Easy to fill, easy to carry and pack. Best way to weight down my tent ever!
ProsStrong handle for carrying. I Like the strap to attach weight to top bars.

Better Sand
June 22, 2018
These (8) sandbags are awesome. I only wish I could have filled them with better sand!
Merchant Response:Quick Tip - If your sand is filthy, smelly, or powdery, consider first putting a couple of contractor trash bags into your canopy sandbag to act as an air-tight liner. The Canopy Sandbag will still take all of the duty/punishment, while the trash bags inside will keep everything clean.
ProsStrap pocket on each bag with strap. Carry handle is sturdy. Velcro leg strap sized for tent leg. Very little sand leakage.
By Troy
They work great!
September 5, 2019
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!
ProsMade in the U.S.A.! Heavy duty!

We were in the market for a set of tent weights and this product not only met our needs, it was better than we had expected!! The quality of workmanship was excellent as well, and the speed of getting it to us was ahead of schedule. We would recommend anyone looking for tent wrights to go with this product and do away with the thought of cement blocks!!

February 27, 2019
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.

Just what I was looking for.
January 11, 2019
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.
ProsVery well made. Comes in colors.

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.

Weights for tent
September 13, 2018
Sandbag weights arrived quickly. I filled each bag with small river pebbles inside a garbage bag. The weights worked perfectly holding our tent down in the wind.
ProsEasy to fill and easy to carry. Weights were easy to attached to the tent legs and top.

Well made tent weights
August 22, 2018
I bought 4 weights to anchor a tent on my driveway, they hold it pretty well. There were days when the wind got a little strong, the tent tilted but it did not move. I also like how they look, very well made.
ProsSturdy, well designed, look great.

Well built product
July 5, 2018
So far, these sandbags have worked out great. Great build quality and the handle on them makes it easy to move them around. The velcro attachment area (on side of sandbag) makes it easy to attach the bags to tent poles (if you decide no to use the straps).
Prosbuild quality amount of sand it can support velcro attachment easy of getting sand/rock into and out of the bags
ConsThe provided tie-down straps could be of better quality (more specifically, the "ratchet mechanism").

Nice product, but to tall
June 26, 2018
I had the chance to use my 7 bags this past weekend. I purchased 100 lbs of pea-gravel which I filled the 7 bags with a little over 14 lbs each. That’s 100 lbs more in weight that I have to pack and hall. I found that the 14 lbs was sufficient for holding down the canopy poles. The 14 lbs of pea-gravel only filled the bags about one third of its capacity, which in my opinion makes the bags to tall. If I filled the bags to capacity, the bags would hold close to 45 lbs each, which is overkill for holding down a canopy pole. Additionally, that would be packing and halling close to 300 lbs of weight. These bags could be half the size (shorter). I did like the way they attached (Velcro) to the poles. Each bag comes with a tie down strap (nice addition), however I didn’t use them. Would have been 5 star if not for the size.

Merchant Response:Thanks for the wonderful feedback Shawn. We have noted it and will consider offering a 20 lb Apex bag in the future for light duty, non public uses. For safety, we do still recommend a full 40 lbs per tent leg if setting up in a public space (parking lots, parks, etc).
ProsGood quality materials, tie down straps included and good attachment points (velcro) to the poles.
ConsTo tall, could be half the size.

Great Item
June 22, 2018
If you need to anchor a canopy & cannot put stakes into the ground, these are the bags to use. Someone out a lit of thought into designing these bags, You can use the included strap to hook onto the top of he canopy & attach to the sandbag. or you can wrap the bag around a leg with the hook & loop attachment.
When I filled my bags, they took about 30 pounds of play sand, so you'll have a good foundat5ion to keep the canopy from blowing away.
The fabric is a heavy weave codura that should withstand years of use/abuse.

Great product. I like that we can pack it up and even bring it on a plane and then fill it when we get there, like sand in Hawaii for event in Kona, or rocks or whatever.

Canopy Sandbags - Purchase for Safety
June 22, 2018
The canopy sandbags are worth the purchase if you have a tent for safety reasons. Any form of wind and / or weight that affects the tent, becomes a safety hazard and a potential loss of revenue if your tent is not secure.

Mail service was quicker than I expected too!
