Competitors either fold webbing onto itself or they rubberize the handles. Our handles are the best on the market because we take the time to reinforce neoprene padding into every handle we build. This provides a more secure, and comfortable grip that you can hold longer. Webbing digging into your hands should not be the reason you have to drop your sandbag, but when handles are webbing only, it will be. And when handles are rubberized, they get slippery when wet and over time, the rubber breaks down and to us that's unacceptable. We prioritize the handle construction so much because we believe they are the most important feature on the sandbags since you grab them with your hands every time you use them.
Each sandbag contains a filler bag that secures the sand inside of it with a triple velcro closure. This filler bag then fits snuggle inside the outer shell.
Special forces grade materials
1000 Denier Cordura is the preferred material for all Special Forces Rucks because it is resistant to the rigors of everything, including war. It's tried and tested.
Double pass stitching at every seam (this requires two passes with a sewing machine) and box stitch reinforcement at the handles, making our exercise sandbags stronger than any other on the market.
Triple Locking Velcro Closure
The filler bags have a triple locking velcro closure system, which is an upgrade from our previous versions with only a double closure. This ensures sand will definitely not escape.
Interlocking seam on filler bags
Filler bag seams are now sewn up the middle with a French style seam that has 3x the stitches as our previous filler bags. It uses an interlocking system of fabric and seams to make sure that the sand does not escape. The seam up the middle also alleviates any previous pressure points. When you toss a sandbag and it lands, all the pressure of the sand pushes outwards. Speaking more practically about our testing, we dropped these off our 45 foot office building and they’re just fine.
