Product Introduction

Customer Review: Robert from California

This is my video about the 11" x 48" monofilament, polyethylene, long-lasting sandbags. I love them.

I live in Fallbrook, California, and as hilly as it is out here, there's a lot of wash off. To the right of the retaining wall there, I have this pretty steep slope that allows me to drive up to the back side of my property.

These polyethylene sandbags here to the lower edge keep the silt that may overflow there from going down into my French drain, which subsequently goes out to the road. Of course, I have the wattles helping to support the sandbags to prevent the silt from running down.

And I have sandbags behind my camper, to keep the mud from eroding too badly. I line them up there. It retains the wall. Of course, I do have straw there for the splash coming off of the top noise damper.

So that is my experience with these green, elongated sandbags. 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 I haven't actually tried to do walls with these monofilament, polyethylene sandbags. They may work well.

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.


1. 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.

2. Extremely heavy duty

These structurally durable tube sandbags will not rupture even if driven over by cars.

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.

Excellent for heavy duty applications like sandbagging, landscaping and construction.

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.
