Product Introduction

Sandbaggy 11" x 48" long tube sandbags are great for controlling erosion, diverting water, flood prevention, or even to add traction to your truck. Also known as snake sandbags, these sandbags have built-in high-quality tie strings for easy enclosure - no need for zipties. Fill them up with gravel and they will last 1-2 years under direct sunlight, 2-3X longer than standard sandbags.

The high-density polyethylene mesh is 2-3X thicker than standard polypropylene. This makes these tube sandbags heavy duty, reusable, and having a weight capacity of 70 lbs.

Customer Review: Robert from California

These polyethylene sandbags here to the lower edge keep the silt that may overflow there from going down into my French drain.

I served in the Marines. I did a lot of sandbagging in Beirut with the normal military sandbags. Those are nice to build walls with and things of that nature.

But these monofilament, polyethylene sandbags definitely work superior than any other sandbag for stopping erosion from runoff because they're made nearly four feet long. Once they're tied off, they can cover a lot of area pretty quickly and prevent your earth/water from running all over the place.


Last up to 1-2 years

These rugged long-lasting empty tube sandbags are made for heavy-duty applications and can last up to 1-2 years under direct sunlight before they begin to degrade.

Compared to standard sandbags with a 6 month life, these long-lasting tube sandbags can last at least twice as long.

Heavy duty polyethylene construction

These structurally durable tube sandbags will not rupture even if driven over by cars. They are manufactured from high-density polyethylene materials, each strand is a single filament.The non-deformable filaments are woven in a specific pattern and fusion welded for extra strength.

The polyethylene sandbags are excellent for heavy duty applications like sandbagging, landscaping, construction, and even adding to the back of a truck bed to give the vehicle more traction.

Great for many applications

I received the product but can’t figure out how to open the end to fill it. The videos never show this as the bag is already filled. Do I cut the end?

Yes, you can either use a pair of scissors or you could just pull it apart. It is just a heat seal lamination that needs to be opened.
