The SafariSack™ has been in production for over ten years. It has been duplicated by others, but as they say, “copying is the best form of flattery.”

We offer a choice of fill: polyethylene beads are the most stable, but heavier than the buckwheat hulls. For lenses up to 200mm, the buckwheat is adequate. The ends are slightly rounded for easier handling. D-rings on the ends for carrying over the shoulder with a shoulder strap (# Y215 is adjustable, unpadded & 1″ / 25 mm wide). With the sewn-in strap, it can be securely fastened to the rack on the top of a Land Rover which is common on safari…or your own mini-van or SUV! If you want a longer strap, get the # Y208. You can add sand or pebbles to use as a ballast to stabilize a tripod or light stand in the wind. We recommend the use of an optional liner for sand (large ZipLoc) or choose the R425 SafariSack II for a simpler, less expensive ballast bag; use the R106 water bladder with it.

Product Features

  • DESIGN-This rugged bean bag is for supporting a DSLR, mirrorless or video camera on a vehicle, car window, chair, table, tree limb, fence post or on the ground. It is quicker to use than a tripod. The bag has a zippered compartment-filler, such as polyethylene beads, buckwheat hulls, rice, beans etc. can added w/o the need for a liner.
  • MODES OF USE-It can used in two modes: 1) camera support or 2) ballast mode-hang it on a tripod or light stand to stabilize in the wind or when using super-telephoto lenses. It is also for supporting a rife at the range.
  • BUILD QUALITY-It is constructed of a combination of durable 400-denier and 420-denier Ripstop Nylon fabrics. We don’t use cheap polyester fabrics like many imports!). Additionally, the bottom has a rubberized-type fabric that keeps the sack in place when placed on a vehicle or other slick surface. It is double stitched throughout and reinforced at the webbing junction points.
  • INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL-When traveling abroad take the empty version and fill it locally with rice, beans or bird seed. Then, upon completion of the shoot, dump the contents, returning home with an empty, compact bag.
  • Designed & Crafted in the USA

I’d probably like to see it completely removable because I only see … Very well made bag with loops and a small strap to carry it but not without a few small drawbacks. The included strap is neither adjustable or removable, but you can add a section of strap the manufacturer sells. I’d probably like to see it completely removable because I only see it really useful as a handle. If I wanted to carry it on my shoulder I’d want a better strap clipped to the loops and now the included strap is there hanging free. I Filled mine with rice for now but will probably…

Basic Usefulness As advertised. The fill you put in it makes all the difference as far as flexibility and stability. I used plastic pellets but find them heavier than I prefer to lug around the world , however, the advantage is mold resistance in humid climates, and they seem to hold the setup position. The sack itself is sturdily made canvas with a rubberized nonslip side. Just a rectangular bag with a zipper, otherwise. When I travel, I end up bracing my camera on ancient walls and doorways, or maybe on a…
